Did you know I have a referral program for boudoir photos? Probably not because I’ve been pretty terrible about telling folks about it. Technically, I have referral programs for weddings, families, newborns, etc etc etc. (By program I of course mean Starbucks cards, free sessions, or whatever you want because I LOVE referrals!) I’m happy to chat with you about those some time if you’d like to know about them! Today though, we’ll be discussing our boudoir referral program. Everyone knows a photographer. You’re probably related to a photographer. There’s approximately 5,439,027 photographers in the Tulsa area so I’m sure you’ve bumped into one or two of them. Lucky for me, not all of them photograph boudoir pictures. The ladies that use me for their boudoir shoot tell their friends, and if they’re telling their friends they should be getting something from it. It’s my way of saying thank you. I literally would not have my business if it weren’t for loyal clients that brag on me.
The great thing about boudoir shoots is that they’re kind of addictive. You’ll have so much fun at yours that I can almost promise you’ll want to do it again. So many of my girls come back every few years for a new book. (I’d like to make a note here that even the most conservative budget-making husband is, without fail, always on board with a new book.) For that reason, my thank you for sending clients to me is by gifting you more boudoir pictures. I even promise not to make it complicated. Well, I’ll try at least.
Refer 1 Client: If you refer one of your friends that books a boudoir session that automatically gives you a free mini session in the sheets. This is a 20 minute session where we’ll wrap you up in sheets and create sexy and flirty photos for you. The nice thing about it is you don’t have to plan complicated lingerie. For these we recommend a bra and panty set. You can throw on an oversized sweater, one of his favorite t-shirts, or kimono to add a little variety. Mini session are great for our Little Black Book products or it would also be appropriate for a 10×10 canvas for the nightstand.
Refer 2 Clients: If you have sent us 2 new boudoir clients you earn a one hour photo shoot. This is the same shoot you’d get if you were just calling the studio for the first time for a session – all the bells and whistles! Be warned though, you’re going to want a gorgeous book to go along with the photos. But because you’ve been through this process before and you’re just helping your pocketbook out a little bit for your next session.
Refer 3 Clients: Here’s where it gets fun, if you refer me 3 clients you have some options. Basically you have $300 credit to use however you please! You can put it towards your session, you can put it towards products, or whatever you’d like. Let’s play!
Refer 4 Clients: Um…. if you refer me FOUR clients, just go ahead and tell me what you’d like. I’d be incredibly indebted to you. Boudoir session? Sure! Dinner for 2 at Mahogany’s? Absolutely. My first born child? We can talk.
To get serious though for a minute, I can’t thank my clients enough. You trust me enough to send your friends and I appreciate it so much. I’ve been a photographer for 17 years (17??? What the actual hell??) and I can say, without a shadow of doubt, that I wouldn’t have a successful business if it weren’t for my clients. Some of you have stuck with me for a really long time. It’s not fun to admit, but there was a time when my customer service was less than stellar (understatement) and you continued to come back to me. If I haven’t told you thank you recently, please know I’m saying thank you now. (You know who you are – Basically everyone from 2008.) Some of you have moved on to some of the other 5,439,027 photographers, but maybe it’s time for a session that’s all about you. Either way, I’d love to take care of you.
