Boudoir Marketing Idea

Hey photographer friends! If you’ve been to one of our workshops or heard us speak, you’ve probably already heard about how we like to give our clients fun little gifts and surprises as a way to thank them for booking a shoot with us. If our clients are trusting us enough to book a boudoir shoot with our studio, we want to be sure that we are taking care of them and that we tell them thank you! We are a huge proponent of handwritten thank you cards (we order our custom cards from Bay Photo). And then we also like to give another something small as a surprise – right now we’re giving away bonus wallet images. In the past, though, we have also given away fabulous custom lipglosses that we had made with our logo. This was a really fun concept, and it’s something we’ve been thinking about doing again.

So we wanted to throw out an informal poll to all of you out there….. we have an awesome company that we are thinking of ordering these lipglosses through, and we wanted to get some feedback from all of you photographers to see if this is something you would be interested in ordering. So leave a comment below and let us know your thoughts!

Please tell us:
1) How many lipglosses would you want to order for the year,
2) Any other comments about this idea!

Once we hear from you, we’ll let you know more info about the amazing makeup company that can get these lipglosses for you!

Thanks! xoxo, The Divas

  35. WhirlieGirl says:

    If I had to give a number, I’d also say about 40-50 for the year…could be more….depends on the price!

  36. fashionshots says:

    I got some more my business (see here:, they are totally worth the investment!! Every time a client applies her gloss, she thinks of us. :)

  37. fashionshots says:

    P.S. – I’d order 100 for the year. I like your color better. Let me know how to get in too!! :)

  38. This was one of the first ideas I offered the boudoir photographer who approached me for marketing ideas. I mentioned it was something the make-up artist gave me after our appointment on my wedding day. A perfect gift because it’s the one thing you reapply throughout that day.
    It not only be something nice to have, but it will be something that brings back the emotion tied to the shoot. If she’s complemented on it another day, she can mention where she got it. Also, if she loves it… she can order more which is the perfect opportunity to sell another session with a different style.
    I’ve looked into a few places who offer private branding, but haven’t yet even requested samples.
    It’s exciting to read your endorsement of the concept!!!!
    Isn’t this a fun business?!!!

  39. Ceece says:

    About 100/yr

  40. I don’t know if you still want moments, but here goes. ;) I would order 100, I think.

  41. I would LOVE these for my Biz! OMGOSH! I’m thinking roughly 8-10 a month would be good!! LOVE THIS IDEA LADIES!

  42. I’d love some info on this if you can still get it please. I’d need about 60-100. Thanks!
