Have you ever wondered how other photographers are constantly getting inquiries and booking shoots? It’s hard to watch as your competition generates a consistent stream of inquires while you wonder what you’re doing wrong.
Are my prices too high?
Is the market too saturated?
Is it my editing style, my competitor across town, or my reputation?
These are the wrong questions to be asking. While some of these things may contribute to the overall success of your business, it’s unlikely that they’re to blame for a lack of inquiries coming from your photography website. When it comes to getting more inquiries, there’s one simple rule to follow:
Make it as easy as possible for your website visitors to start a conversation with you.
Visitors shouldn’t have to jump through hoops, fill out weird forms, and click all over your website just to inquire. It should be a piece of cake! If you provide an easy way for visitors to talk to you, you should see your inquiries and conversations quickly increase.
Unfortunately, many of the common practices for starting conversations like this are outdated and ineffective. The 3 most common ways to start a conversation from your website are 1) a contact form, 2) displaying your phone number, 3) displaying your email address on your site. While it isn’t “bad”, it’s certainly not the best strategy to start conversations. Contact forms are boring and don’t convert well, phone calls are intimidating, and email addresses are too passive.
This is where the Bloom Lead Widget enters the stage.
The Bloom Lead Widget is the easiest form of communication for potential customers visiting your website. It’s exactly what it sounds like: a beautiful, stylish widget that you put on your website, enabling live chat with your potential customers. But you also get a lot more than just chat. Here’s some amazing things it can do for your business:
- Chat with website visitors in real-time
- Chat on-the-go with the Bloom iPhone app
- Collect leads and information about potential bookings
- Quickly build trust by responding to messages quickly
- Collect names, email addresses, and phone numbers
- Set follow-up actions for your leads to nurture them
Kissmetrics found that live chat can generate 4-8x more leads for your business. Additionally, visitors who chat with businesses are 82% more likely to convert, (Source: Intercom) and customers feel most satisfied during their buyer’s journey when using a live chat feature, compared to other options such as voice (88%), email (85%), and even social media messaging (Facebook 84%, Twitter 77%) (Source: Inc.com). It’s incredible how one small feature can improve your business so drastically.
However, this tool is much more powerful than just live chat.
