ZenBlog | Successful Photographers: Email Template to "Ask for a Recommendation"


Email Template for Photographers to Ask Clients for a Recommendation

As a photographer, getting a positive review of your service can help create more business for you down the line. But who has time to carefully craft an email with that request. As your greatest business partner, Zenfolio wants to help you get back behind the camera instead of spending time with your inbox. So here is an email template written from the photographer's perspective and geared towards asking the client for a recommendation. Just follow these steps:

1. Copy and paste the email text below into a new email template. (Pro and Advanced plans only)

2. Customize the email to fit your business, brand, and voice to your clients. 

3. Send the email directly to clients or add it to an email campaign

It was wonderful to work with you, and I’m grateful to be part of such a great event. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. The best kind of business is from personal referrals, so feel free to tell your friends and family about your experience working with me. It’s also helpful when clients post a review online. When you get a chance, it would be incredibly valuable to me if you could leave a review on the following website.

It’s always helpful when clients share their good experience, and lets us continue to do the thing we love the most – photographing clients like you!

Thanks in advance, and let me know if you have questions that I can help you with.
