With so many courses and influencers in the creative sphere, it can be hard to know what is actually going to help you. You may receive a ton of Instagram ads touting increased leads, “simple” tricks, and strategies behind a paywall. As a team of virtual assistants for wedding photographers, we’ve been around the block a few times with educators, coaches, and everything in between. That’s why we’re here to talk to you about whether or not a wedding photography business coach is worth it for you.
First of all: what’s the reason you want to inquire about coaching? What do you feel is missing from your business? Or more importantly, who do you feel is missing? As a full-time professional, you’ve got to use your resources sparingly. Both financially and time-wise, it’s crucial to assess the benefits of booking coaching sessions.
Let’s take a step back and look at what a wedding photography business coach does. These are professionals who help creative entrepreneurs with their business. This can range from 1:1 sessions to bounce ideas, or full-on audits of your current systems. It all depends on what style of coaching you look for. Many wedding photographers are great at the creative elements, but their business side is lacking. A coach can help fill in missing gaps for you to DIY your business.
Coaches can also help assess your social media strategy or work with you to sell more wedding and portrait products. Look into what they specialize in as a business owner. It’s very important to know exactly the kind of help you’re looking for before you research and hire a service coaching for photographers.
Some wedding professionals feel comfortable with the do-it-yourself approach that having a coach provides. However, for many creative business owners, you can end up feeling stuck. There are so many different needs that your small business has, and you may not be able to accomplish it all yourself. This can leave you feeling down and out, like you’re not getting enough done.
That’s where a wedding photography VA can come in handy. A virtual assistant will help you manage the ins and outs of your daily tasks, so you can spend more time where you thrive: on-site. Not only can you bounce ideas off of your assistant, but they can also help you get it done. Our team has extensive experience strategizing with our clients to ensure your business stays thriving.
The most important takeaway from all of this is that every entrepreneur is different. Some may benefit from the one-on-one aspect of a wedding photography business coach. Others may be better off focusing their efforts on educational content focused on their small business. For those who are looking for a little more direct help, investing in a virtual assistant may be the key. Reach out to us at the Genie VA to see how we can help you build a business focused on your dream clients.
