Congratulations to Danielle Z., winner of the Friends and Family Guide. She shared that she would likely take a hybrid approach of #1 and #3. We look forward to hearing out well this is received, and more importantly, how much peace of mind and respect you gain with this clear communication.
Combining business and friendship isn’t easy, but with this clear, consistent communication you can avoid confusion and hurt feelings. Our popular Friends and Family Guide can help you step into 2014 on the right foot.
We include four options from which to choose. Each option is professionally, yet warmly worded so that you can feel comfortable spelling out your boundaries.
HERE ARE THE FOUR OPTIONS:
1) Complimentary Session Offer: This option allows you to continue gifting your photography to friends and family but puts in place important boundaries that protect your paying clients and your own personal sanity.
2) Complimentary Mini Session Offer: This option allows you to offer special free mini sessions to your friends and family list. Other photography commissions by friends and family are priced at regular rates.
3) Discounted Rates: This option allows you to clarify your special discounts in place for friends and family only.
4) Full-Priced Sessions: With warmth and clarity, this option communicates to your friends and family that you will no longer offer discounts to anyone, including friends and family.
What option would you choose for your friends and family program? Share your thoughts below in a comment by 5 pm EST TODAY and you could be the lucky winner of our Friends and Family Guide.
