New marquee hire websites and stock photos
When you first start up a marquee hire business something you always struggle with is photographs for your website. Obviously we supply a few to get you started but really you want a wide selection showing a variety of marquees and effects for customers to see but until you’ve done a marquee like that you haven’t got any photos of it.
One solution is to buy some ‘stock photos’ (I can’t recommend one particular site so just google it to see what I mean).
If you’ve been in business for a while and suddenly a new business pops up who look as if they’ve already done wedding marquees similar to the Beckhams then this is probably the answer, they just bought some stock photos.
Saying this, you do have to be a little careful here.
- The photos look good. That’s why you bought them after all but..
- Chances are the photos aren’t of your style of marquee. What if someone comes along as says – I want one of those!
You also have to be careful of misleading customers (even Burger King are at it). My personal view is by all means use them but be very very selective on the photos you buy. Choose ones that show people having a good time at a wedding/party for example rather than one that shows an unknown marquee in detail.
