Chapter 1 Know What You Don’t Know One of the lessons I pass along to every group I speak to on this subject is this mantra: Know what you don’t know. I know it sounds silly at first blush, but when you stop and think about it, you realize that it’s really a wise idea. If you don’t know about marketing, don’t pretend that you do. Admit that you don’t (at least to yourself), and then work to fix that. When you’ve figured out what you don’t know, then and only then can you work to know what you now know you don’t know.
There are numerous books and courses (many free or very inexpensive) in communities across the country that you can utilize to help you draft this plan. Bring your tax returns, marketing materials (postcards, Web sites, and so on), and in a day or two you’ll find that you have a banker’s perspective on your business. Bankers are math people who look to make sure that if they loan you the money, you’ll be able to pay them back; they have a vested interest in making sure you can do so and that you remain in business.
Those planning exercises were tactical—they helped you complete the assignment successfully and hopefully earn another assignment from the client. Developing a business plan in which success is defined as you remaining a photographer is a strategic decision, one that is critical to your future. Understand, though, that your plans must incorporate the idea that the business of photography is constantly changing. You not only must plan for what you expect, but you must establish responses to unexpected events and responses to those responses, and so on, and so on.
