Q&A

Photography can make or break your marketing campaign. Whatever product or service you sell, think about how you are coming across to your customers. If you look cheap, expect people to start by asking, “how much?” If you convey quality, you will attract customers who value quality, and are willing to pay for it.

Marketing is all about communicating your value. Tapping into commercial photography is an excellent opportunity to create a message for your business that makes you unique… and memorable.

“It takes nothing to join the crowd. It takes everything to stand alone.” — Hans F. Hansen

Want your marketing materials to stand out amongst a sea of messages that prospects receive daily? In order to stay top of mind for your customers, photos are a vital part in telling your story and making your message memorable.

Simple ways to incorporate photography into your marketing

Spotlight your brand. Create hero shots focused on your products. To make them memorable, highlight the product both with and without people in it. (Hero Shot: A visual representation that demonstrates how your product or service actually works so your prospects can picture themselves using it.)

Style your products. Customers have trouble visualizing how your product will fit into their lives. Put your products in the context of the other items your prospective customers will be using.

Entertain your customers. Use amusing photographs to lure your prospects, and customers. Humor is great for building your brand, and they can be highly viral leading to additional social media reach.

In 1998, a creative entrepreneur running a small graphic design studio approached her fiancé, in his first year of law school and working a part-time clerking job, with an idea to start a magazine. The pair partnered up with a long-time friend, vetted the concept and started the business – each investing $150 to get their new company off the ground. With their $450, creativity, grit, good timing and a measure of luck, the trio soon proved the concept viable, and a new publishing and product photography company was born.

Ask founding partners Amit Bloom, David Bloom and Michael Stern about their formula for building a successful publishing business, and you’ll hear words like friendship, collaboration honesty, integrity and perseverance. These values have permeated the story of Stern Bloom Media. When a recession hit the country ten years into the life of their thriving AVENTURA magazine, the partners were determined to work through the downturn. Along with their team, they pursued new ideas in parallel with the magazine, ultimately leveraging an existing infrastructure to offer additional publishing services. More recently, Stern Bloom Media added digital marketing services to its offerings, in response to customer needs. The company also adopted a business operating system to maximize talent and strengthen the organization for the next level of growth. Today, Stern Bloom Media is a print publishing and commercial photography studio focused on crafting the finest brand image for customers. With more than 20 years of proven success, the company has a reputation for delivering reliability, creativity and expertise through collaboration.
