See What Your Viewers Wants
There is no better way to know what your people want than by asking them! Use relevant social media channels to see what your viewers want. Pay attention to what they respond to as well.

Make A List Of What You Want
What are your goals for this upcoming wedding season? While it's important to deliver to your viewers & ideal clients, it's crucial to set some goals for yourself as well. Do you want to raise your prices? Create more appealing content? Outsource your design service? Be sure to think on this before wedding season hits, write the goals down, and begin taking steps to execute!
Be sure to really get yourself mentally ready for the wave of wedding season and all its glory. Ways to do this is to practice all the way up until wedding season with styled shoot involvement, second shooting for other photographers, and taking any little wedding job to keep your energy flowing. Don't go overboard, as you'll have to conserve your energy, but always remember that champions are made in the off season!
