Welcome to the blog, sort of like a digital garden where dreams are planted and grow wild! My name is Quianna and my family calls me “Qui” like key! I’m a destination wedding photographer based in Scottsdale and the Bay Area.
I love adventures and creating memories even more than I love photographing them—and I LOVE taking photos! In addition to capturing weddings, family milestones, and the best memories I also offer business tools, motivation and inspiration to help creatives turn their passions into their profession. We only get this one life, why not live our days doing what we love?
5 Friday Introduction Ideas | Share Your Heart + Help Dream Clients Find YOU!
I see you, boo!
You have a blooming business.
You have a passion for serving others and creating luxury experiences for clients.
Your best friends are impressed with your talents and your past clients rave about you.
But how do you GROW your network and share your heart without feeling too sales-y, braggy or really annoying on your social media?!
Wanna know the BIGGEST secret that has helped my business grow over the last couple of years? The ONE thing that (among the thousand little things) that catapulted my business?
SHARE YOUR HEART
If you’re only selling products or your services just because… no matter how talented you are, your clients and potential market just aren’t invested enough.
I suggest playing the long game! What are your wildest dreams? Do you dream about opening your own restaurant? Do your children give you life and you crave spending time with them? Does your past help shape the decisions of your future?
People LOVE stories and enjoy being apart of the bigger journey.
Asking people to invest in you so you can travel or simply put food on the table isn’t very exciting… there has to be some kind of magic that makes people WANT to follow along with your business growth!
FRIDAY INTRODUCTION IDEAS
SHARE UPCOMING GOALS
This is a great way for your audience to learn more about you by sharing what you’re working towards! Thinking of adding some easy decor updates to your home? Have any personal fitness goals? Planning to start a podcast or just be more consistent with blogging? Share about these goals!
SHARE ABOUT YOUR SERVICES
When is the last time you hopped on instagram or shared a facebook post about your services? Not just a recent photo of your work… but a legit breakdown to share EXACTLY what you’re selling?! Sometimes we are so close to our business that we forget that people need to be reminded about what we offer! It sounds so simple, but you don’t have to be running a special or have an upcoming event to share about your services.
SHARE THEIR NEEDS
What keeps your clients awake at night? What type of questions are in their head that you can help answer? Identify their pain points and offer quick key tips about how you’re the expert with solutions! Give your dream clients tons of “Ah-ha” moments that makes them think… “OMG! She’s in my head!”
Reach out to past clients to share about their experience working with you! If you have a hard time talking about yourself, it may be easier to have someone else do the talking! I suggest sharing these directly on your instagram feed, in your stories to create highlights and even share to blogs!
Don’t forget to slip in the questions you get asked the most! Make it personal by not only including your business questions, but also what you wear for your events or anything particular about how your business functions.
Our family, friends and network live a very different life than our everyday madness. They often don’t personally connect with being a bride or anything our ideal client is relating to! But… they do LOVE you! They all have that in common. I encourage you to share more about the day to day life… things they can connect to! It makes you more human, more relatable and even more top of mind!
People on the internet care less about you and more about how you can help them! I encourage you to find a way to talk about yourself, while still offering insight and ideas that help solve their problems as well!
