Another great marketing idea for your photography business

Hello Everyone!  Hope you are all having a good weekend so far.  Need a new way to get more portrait customers?  Here is a great idea:  do a model call for a coffee-table book.  It could feature pets or cute babies.  There are many places that will publish your book (do a google search for book publishing).  Here is an article with a great example of how one photographer is doing this (she got some great free publicity, too).  Remember, your models will enjoy a free print, but more than likely they will want to purchase some extra prints or a package, too (not to mention the book once it is published).
