    My biggest struggle marketing is getting my brand developed and getting the word out to more people.

    My biggest obstacle is getting the pieces together to market with! I have business cards I hand out and get a lot of referrals, but everything else I have is 1) not that great 2) sitting here because I dont know who to send it to!

    Organization seems to be my biggest struggle. I feel like I am constantly behind and when I get to a point to set aside time for marketing my business, I don’t feel I have the right tools. Whether it be in the design aspect or just wording. It’s hard for me to focus and just take that next step.

    My biggest struggle in getting started is the other full time job I have, the one that is currently paying the bills! I’m still working on this dream though!

    This couldn’t have come at a better time!! Materials! That’s what is keeping me from getting started! The cost to get there. I’m not creative AT ALL when it comes to marketing stuff, and its all so expensive to purchase! I could really use this to get the “kick start” I need! I want to have a somewhat professional look from the start, even while PBing. But I don’t have the funds to do it. So, bring it on! Pick ME!! 🙂 Ha!

    The hardest thing for me is charging! I hate asking for money for my photos.

    My biggest marketing obstacle is knowing where to put the money that targets the right customers.

    My Biggest struggle to get started is just getting my creative juices going enough to gather clients and make up packages, specials and prices for my photography.

    Honestly, my biggest struggle is being able to create the marketing pieces that I envision in my mind. I seriously need some help~

    I’ve been in business for almost 8 years. I have the hardest time getting senior pictures. I have done *snail mail, *ads in paper (high school and local paper), *Face Book, *Senior Rep…

    I am just starting out, and the biggest challenge for me will be building that initial client base.

    My biggest problem is that my creativity does not lie in this area. I am lost when it comes to making wise marketing choices; logos, colors, getting the word out about my services, etc. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Just starting my business. The biggest obstacle is balancing the time I need to take to organize and set up the business with marketing, booking, taking and editing photo sessions. Too easy to get wrapped up on one side and neglect the other.

    I think my biggest challenge has been deciding my worth – selling myself short vs being over-confident.
