What does a copywriter for photographers do?

While the word “copywriter” is unfamiliar to most, the job of a copywriter is actually very simple: to create marketing and business content that attracts, captivates, and converts an ideal client. So, what does a copywriter for photographers do? I write sales copy for photographers to help them flood their booking calendars with dream clients!

Maybe you’re tired of struggling through written content that never seems to get finished. Or your website isn’t attracting your ideal clients. Or you’re getting ghosted by potential clients somewhere in your introductory email workflow. If any of these situations feel familiar, you need someone to boost your written content to help you get the conversions you need. And that’s where a copywriter can step in!

But a copywriter can’t GIVE you a personality or save a failing business. We fill very specific roles and succeed under particular circumstances. To avoid dissatisfaction after working with a copywriter, it’s important to have a firm grasp on what we do and don’t do.

Let’s break it down more clearly:

What a copywriter does:

    • Helps define your ideal client.
    • Refines the brand voice and unique writing style for your business.
    • Helps coax out and cultivate that brand voice and writing style if you don’t have one yet.
    • Writes website and marketing materials, such as your primary web pages, blog posts, client guides, social media content, and email templates.
    • Writes with a focus on SEO to ensure your ideal clients can find you when they go a’Googling for a business like yours.
    • Gives your brand a sense of professionalism and trust through quality written content.
    • Builds an initial relationship with your ideal client that helps you stand out from the crowd.

What a copywriter doesn’t do:

    • Teach you how to become a better photographer or run a quality business—that’s what mentors and coaches are for!
    • Design your website—that’s what web designers are for!
    • Post your content for you—that’s what YOU are for!

How will your business improve after partnering with a copywriter for photographers?

    • You’ll gain a more vibrant understanding of who your ideal client is, what they want, and how to connect meaningfully with them.
    • You’ll have more confidence in your written content, marketing materials, and overall business voice.
    • You’ll see higher rankings on Google thanks to SEO keywording.
    • Your emails will actually inspire your potential clients to take action instead of ghosting you.
    • Best of all, you’ll have more time to focus doing what you love, rather than worrying over your written content!

How to know if you’re ready to work with a copywriter for photographers:

    • You’ve had success in one location or style of photography, but you’re preparing to move or pivot to another photography style.
    • You’ve grown as a photographer and you’re ready to increase your prices or client experience, and now you need the written content to match!
