Ina Jalil of www.inajphotography.com is part of the PhotoBizX Membership Community and someone I'm familiar with through our Member's Facebook Group, The Daily Vlog Challenge, Zoom training sessions, email and messenger.

Although I do feel like I know her, I wasn't aware of how well she was going in business or that she's only in her 2nd year as a professional pet photographer.

A message by fellow member and pet photographer Elouise Giardina had me reaching out for this interview. Elouise wrote…

Hey Andrew! I'm thinking it's time you consider interviewing Ina J about her pet photography business! She's killing it and is only in her 2nd year of pet photography. She's a real go-getter and the most helpful person I've ever met!

That was enough for me!

Ina J is based in Canberra, Australia and shoots indoors and on location. She has the most beautiful pet photography that can't be the work of someone new to photography!

And from what I can see and know, she is totally into all facets of her business, from photography to marketing, sales, products and advertising.

In this interview, Ina shares the details of her promos and the things she's doing to increase her average sales consistently.

Here's some more of what we covered in the interview:

  • A brief background of Ina's pet photography business
  • Ina's turnover and average spend of her clients
  • How to handle pushbacks from clients

  • Clients buy what they see on studio walls
  • Organizing workshops to practice dog photography
  • Tips and ideas for dog poses
  • The importance of being okay despite failures with marketing attempts
  • The proper way to reach out to fellow photographers when seeking help
  • Pricing videos for clients – are they effective
  • What kind of promos are working for Ina in her pet photography business
  • The difference between active and passive marketing
  • Recent promos Ina ran using active marketing methods
  • Benefits of hiring a business coach
  • Ina's competition promo process
  • Ina's pre-shoot planning appointment process
  • Wearing your merch as a marketing strategy
  • Where Ina sees her business a year from now
