How A Professional Freelance Photographer Tripled His Business By Outsourcing
Luke Ayers is a professional photographer and video producer who continues to astonish his wide clientele by taking on most projects single-handedly and still producing results rivalling far more expensive productions. He’s often labelled a one-man production team and dabbles in various trades - everything from copywriting to graphic design.
Luke has a secret, though.
Scaling freelance business while preserving the fun
As a creative person with a raging desire to engage in exciting projects, he finds the post-production process a serious drag. So when his online business started to take off, he turned to PeoplePerHour freelancers for expert assistance.
“I started my business about 6 years ago as a freelance photographer and video producer. Since then its client base has only been growing. As I got more and more work coming in, I was less and less enjoying spending hours sitting editing photos when the real fun for me was in taking them.”
“So I then started searching the web for an affordable way to outsource this, which would then allow me to increase overall production as well. I tried several freelance websites but most seemed too complex and tedious to join and set up and difficult to understand. PeoplePerHour stood out to me because it was a simple experience that was easy to understand and worked great!” remembers Ayers.
“I do a lot of product photography and one particular freelancer on PPH has been a godsend to me. He has literally done retouching on thousands of my images and every time I’ve been totally impressed with his results. Many of these images can be seen on my product photos page,” said Ayers.
“Since hiring freelancers through PPH, my business production has doubled and even tripled as I can now concentrate on the production and then send off post-production to my reliable contacts I’ve since made through PPH. The peace of mind I get from this is priceless. My overall income has definitely increased as a result of the time created through outsourcing with PPH,” continued Ayers.
When asked about why he sticks with PPH when there are so many alternatives out there, Ayres responded:
"The freelancers on PPH are honest, hard workers who I can trust and who are very eager to please. The PPH communication system is also easy to use and allows projects to be finished swiftly and economically.”
“I’ve lost track of how much I’ve spent on PPH. Probably about $2000 total by now, and worth every penny. I haven’t had one bad experience and I’m happy to keep using this great system indefinitely and working with these great freelancers I would have otherwise never made contact with and built such fantastic working relationships with. Thanks for putting it here!”
