What Stories Are You Trying To Tell About Your Boats That Fit Into Your Customer’s Lives?
Not all Boat Advertising Photography is created equally. Here is why.
On the surface – Boat Advertising Photography is a way to show off your boats. That is how most people use it – “oh look a boat on the water, that’s nice.”
The surface is where most people stop and you end up with mediocre images that tell no story or if they tell a story it is the wrong one to the wrong people. Picture a husband trying to pitch his wife on the idea of buying a boat and every boat image you have shows bikini-clad women hanging all over your boats. Step into the wife’s shoes – what message is being told?
People buy boats for a reason. They have a problem, desire or dream they are trying to fill. So, tell a clear concise story with images that fulfills one of those things and it will create a connection with the people with whom that story resonates.
Back to the wife – will bikini-clad women resonate with her? Yes, but not in a positive way. Is she going to support the idea of buying this boat? Probably not. It is going to be a hard sell for the husband and all he wants is a nice boat so they can have some fun together.
There is a lot to be said for just showing shiny happy people enjoying your boat. However, the story should not end there.
Some things to think about:
- What do you want your customers to experience?
- What do you want your customers to feel?
- What story do you want your customers to associate with your boats?
- What life events would you want your customers to share with you?
- How can you help your customers achieve their unspoken desires?
- What problems does a certain design of your boat solve? How much better will my life be for using it?
- What do you really want your boat images to do for you? What are you trying to do with them?
