Word of Mouth

Everyone knows that word of mouth advertising is one of the strongest ways for a business to spread the word on its services and it allows a direct connection to form between a potential client and the services that they need. 

We always ask new clients how they heard of us and why they chose us over the other photographers in the Calgary area. More often than not, they tell us that a friend had a great experience with our services, or an acquaintance of theirs has worked with us in the past and recommended us to them.

I was reminded of this again last night when my friend Shane phoned and told me about one of his clients who had a photographer threaten to cancel at the last minute for a session that was scheduled for today. After a brief chat with me, he reached out to her and passed my details along.  The client then contacted me and I was able to help her work through the problem and provide a solution in the event the cancellation actually occurred. Fortunately, her original photographer came through in the end, but it was a great opportunity for me to connect with a potential client in the fitness industry--that I did not know before--and to let her see first-hand how we take care of our clients and convey what we had to offer. 

With this in mind, I would like to do a shout-out to some of the businesses that I am directly connected with and that I trust to provide their services in a consistent and professional manner.

If you are in need any of the following services and you would like a personal introduction, please let me know and I will happily connect you with them.
