Okay, another thing I haven’t kept up with very well are my Photo Talk posts. They seem to be put on the back burner a lot lately, and I decided it was time to share about something that is revolutionizing my business. That might be overstating it a little bit, but if nothing else, it’s blowing my mind. Happily.
I don’t know about you, but the idea of getting my work published has always seemed like the HARDEST.THING.IN.THE.WORLD. Where do I start? When do I submit? What are certain publishers looking for? How do I cater my submissions to those publishers? I always had an endless line of questions, and as I would begin to pursue it, they would go unanswered and I would let the project fall through. Countless times. Or how about this question… Is my work good enough to submit? Most of the time I didn’t think so, and it kept me standing still.
So, when I stumbled upon TWO BRIGHT LIGHTS, I think I started crying. Right then and there. They took an incredibly daunting project and turned it into something enjoyable and… EASY. They are “is a personal publicity platform that generates media exposure and word-of-mouth marketing to promote your creative business.” HELLLOOOO!! Could it get any better than that?
Well it does!!
They partner with over 100 editorial partners to specifically help…wait for it…PHOTOGRAPHERS!!! Once you sign up, all you have to do is create an album with the event you would like to submit for publication. After a series of questions that ask for contact information and details about the event, you are able to select up to 10 editorial partners to submit your work!!! You receive a notification if it’s been approved or if it didn’t fit the focus on the publisher. You also receive an email with the link WHEN IT IS PUBLISHED so you can blast it out through social media or thank them for the feature!
And finally, if you’re not a believer yet, let me give you the cold, hard facts.
I signed up at the end of November. In 6 weeks, I have had 5 events featured and 5 more are accepted for publication within the next few weeks.
