We have been experiencing a diconnect regarding relationships to people since COVID 19 hit in 2020.
People are craving a personal connection. They want to feel part of something and to feel they are investing in a realtionship.
Here are three ways to build a relationship with your clients and potential clients.
1.) Make a post about WHO you are
- In 2021, people donʼt want to buy from a business. They want to buy from a
person. They donʼt want to buy from your business. They want to buy from you!
Not even from you the business owner, but from you the individual. Youʼll want
people to get to know who you are on a personal level, not just on a professional
one. You can start doing this by making an introductory post or video about yourself. You
can share some fun facts about yourself so that your ideal clients/customers get
to know more about your personality. This is a popular type of post to make when
you notice youʼve had a recent increase in new followers.
Here is an example of a post about WHO you are…
Hey everyone! My name is Sally Sue. Iʼm West Coast born and raised and have
been a photographer since I graduated high school. Thank you for joining my
corner of the internet! Stick around and youʼll learn how to do X, Y and Z. Listed
below are some fun facts about me. Do we have anything in common? Let me
know in the comments!
(insert about 5 fun facts)
2.) Make a post or video about WHAT you do
- Letʼs turn it over to professional you. The entrepreneur in you. Business owner
you. You have to communicate to your ideal clients/customers what you do.
Meaning, what your business is doing and who your business is doing it for. What
do you do on the professional side of things? What industry are you in? What is
your business niche? How does your business get the job done? What educational
background do you have in this area? What experience are you bringing to the
table? You can create a post that ties your credibility with the connection piece we
previously discussed. Now your ideal clients/customers get the best of both
worlds, personal you and professional you.
Here is an example of a post about WHAT you do…
Hey, Iʼm Sally Sue! Iʼm capturing your precious moments and special seasons of
life. I specialize in special event, candid photography. I went to college and studied
X and have had my photography business for X number of years and have served
X number of clients. I can show up with my camera in hand to your wedding,
graduation, proposal, birthday, baby birth (etc…)! If you want to stay present in the
moment, let me capture the memory. Follow me here to see my work and check

3.) Make a post about WHY you do it
- Why are you doing this? Why are you in business? Why are you creating/building/
sharing? Why do you want X person to buy from or work with you? Why do you
want to help X person or do X things for them? Youʼve talked about what you do
but now letʼs go deeper and share why you choose to do it. Your why is probably
going to be emotionally driven and told more like a story.
Here is an example of a post about WHY you do it…
As a high school graduation present my parents gave me the X type of camera
that I had been eyeing at the mall for months. When I moved away for college, I
used that camera to make my ends meet. I would take headshots of the college
seniors on my campus who were making resumes to apply for jobs. I did this all
four years I was at the school. When I finally graduated, I not only had a diploma in
my hands but years of photography & editing experience. Which also came with
many, many client references. I decided to start a business and get my LLC to
make my photography thing legit. The reason I wanted to continue in photography
was because of how I could capture special seasons of life for people. When I
graduated high school and got my first camera, that a special season of my life. I
remember how happy I was. My mom even took a photo of me in that moment, itʼs
the one above this caption. Iʼm doing that for other people now. Everyone should
have special moments captured to remember forever.
