Get Social Proof with Customer Reviews

In this article I am going to be writing about how to get more customer reviews on Yelp, Google, Facebook, and everywhere else.  As I am sure that you are already well aware, customer reviews are an integral element for modern business, especially a gig based business like ours.  A common habit for so much customers is to find a service, then instantly check Yelp for reviews.  It is just a reality.

The good news is that just a few reviews can help guide someone’s decision to go with us, as long as they are good ones obviously.  The good news is that getting reviews is probably a lot easier than you might have thought previously.

Here is Secret #1 in Getting Customer Reviews.

Too often people in the photo booth industry spend more time focusing on getting clients than they do thinking of ways to really impress the clients that they already have.  Wow them into leaving you a review.  My general attitude is to deliver as much value as possible.  If I am going to be there working anyway, I might as well spend that time being the best version of myself possible.  This especially includes presentation and interaction with the customer.  It isn’t just you either.  Your business should be branded, period. This includes every interaction your customers have with your business, from your initial contact, to every email, to every phone call, to the event its self.  Your business needs a “feel” to it.

Go The Extra Mile Photo Booth Business Advice

Go Above and Beyond

This is what I really believe to be the holy grail, and it takes very little time.  It is called, over-delivering.  I like to, without exception, deliver something for “free” for every job that I do.

It is usually something that is free, and only takes me a minute or two to do, but people love it when you do something free for them.  I think that this is especially true in our industry since a photo booth rental is not a cheap thing.  Delivering something free confirms to people that they made the right decision in hiring you.  It also gives a client something to brag about to their friends when recommending you or leaving you a review.

Another nice thing about doing something free is that people will subconsciously feel like they owe you a favor. Which leads me to my next point…

use email correctly photo booth business advice

Use your Followup Email Correctly

When you deliver the images to your clients, they will be at the height of their excitement about your services.  Never beg for reviews, but add a little link for them to click at the bottom.  You will be surprised how many of your customers will leave you a stunning, rave review.

You get special bonus points if you offer your “free” thing to them in this section.

“I decided to include a special album of selected photos that I processed the images for you since I had such a great time witt you guys.  By the way, if you had fun with my company, if you would please leave me a review here ;).

The 360 Photo Booth by Photo Booth International will be available in the beginning of January for purchase.  It is one of my hottest and most talked about new photo booths to date.  Why is that?  It is a completely revolutionary design, leaving a lot of people wondering:  What is a 360 Photo Booth?  Why do I need one? and Where can I get one?  This article will answer all 3 questions.

What is a 360 Photo Booth?

A 360 Booth is a photo booth that can takes a photo by spinning 360 degrees around the person it is taking a picture of.  Pretty cool right?  It generates a spinning image of the people it is photographing.  This works from people standing on a platform that has an arm spinning around it holding the camera.  These are perfect for wedding, and corporate events.  Imagine the bride and groom getting a 360 degree clip for their wedding video.

 

Why do I need One?

You need a 360 Photo Booth because it is yet another service that you can offer your customers.  It also is a big differentiator when they are choosing a company to work with.  It isn’t like anything that their friends have done, and everyone wants to be unique…  Especially weddings.  

This is a major step in the photo booth industry, and it is important to be one of the first people in your city with one of these.  You don’t want to be trying to catch up with your competitors.  It is best to keep them trying to catch up to you.

Where can I buy a 360 Photo Booth?

You guessed it, Photo Booth International is bringing your our very own 360 photo booth in the beginning of January.  Get ready to take your business to a whole new level in 2020.

Are free events worth it?  Short answer is YES.  Here is how you can leverage doing free events to equal big dollars.  You can keep reading or watch my YouTube video I made here.

Rather read?  No problem.  Here are the takeaways.  Are free events worth it?free photo booth events

What not to do:

The people who don’t benefit from doing free events aren’t maximizing their options.  Don’t just do your logo.  That isn’t going to be enough to really push the needle when it comes to bringing you customers.  You are going to need to step things up a notch to bring in the money in 2020.

What to do:

When you talk to the event coordinator, tell them that you need them to do a blog post, or an article on their website about your company.  It will give you a back-link to your website.  What this does for you is boost your site’s SEO.  It will help to build credibility.  That is what Google is looking for.  Because the charity you are doing the event for is likely a high reputation business, it will add some of their reputation to you.  Make sure that the article and link stays on their site even after the event.

Big Success from free events

Here is how you can make money.

Think of creative ways to leverage the partnership.  This will be unique from organization to organization.  Do they do holiday parties?  Tell them that you will do this one for free, then ask them if they would be willing to book you in the future for two of their internal events.  I have done that lots of times.  Just because they need one event for free, doesn’t mean that they won’t pay you for another one in the future.

The nice thing about doing charity events is the people you will network with.  I can not tell you how many customers that I got this way over the years.  People who go to charity events are not cheapskates.  I know that a lot of you  complain to me about people trying to get your photo booth services for cheap.  Those are the wrong types of customers to be attracting.  It is important to get into the same room with people with a decent budget to spend on a photo booth.

It is surprising sometimes, the situations that can come up when you are in the rooms with movers and shakers.  You might run into the type of person who is going to talk about your business all over town.  It happens sometimes when someone falls in love with the quality of your services.

Other guidance I have for you.

What else makes it worth it?  It is also free advertising.  The more places you can get the coordinators to put your logo, the better.  It will get in everyone’s minds that are there and when they are ready to do an event, who will they remember?  Bring plenty of business cards.

That is how you can leverage free events.  Are free events worth it?  Definitely.
