I'm Debie Demo, Photographer
Here's my about page do's and don'ts
- Share a little about your training and your awards, but don’t make it the focus. This just let’s me see you’re an expert and establishes credibility that you are top-notch, not just in this market we live in.
- If you have been featured in a major publication, tell me. That, too, helps me understand that you’re good…really good!
- If you work with some big name clients, that helps build credibility, too. Mention it.
- If you like peas but not carrots or you are an obsessive list maker, those are funny details that help me get to know more about you and what it will be like to work with you.
- If you’re a mom and your business is selling to mom’s, then share that. It helps me see what we have in common. And I like to do business with people who are like me.
- Tell me something truly unique about you and why you’re here and why I should hire you. Don’t tell me that you’ve had a camera in your hand since you were 3. Nearly every photographer says that.
- Write it in first person. It helps your personality shine through.
- If you’re not a skilled writer and would rather poke your eyeballs out than write about yourself, ask a friend who has a way with words to help out. Or, trade services with a professional writer. This job is a piece of cake for someone who writes for a living!
