    New In Business In Australia

    Hi friends,
    I and My wife are a professional photographer from overseas, and moved to Melbourne in last 6 months.
    In last few months we have established our photography business here.

    CheersMelbournePhotography.
    http://cheersmelbournephotography.com/

    We registered our business and got ABN.
    We set up a home studio and a home office in western suburbs of Melbourne.
    Started some advertising, and minor networking.

    Our services mostly based on candid and natural wedding and family photography.

    I would like to meet professionals from the forum and get some advices.
    For example are wedding portals are useful for networking, is ABIA a must, what can you advice about vendor networking.. etc.

    Everything here is different from Europa.
    I need some help.

    King regards
    erkin
    Cheers.

    I had a look at your website: a few comments that you might consider -

    > The dollar's symbol comes before the numerals - so $950 is correct: 950$ is incorrect

    > Australia is almost universally metric - although a small point the albums dimensions should be metric, not imperial (inches) - although as a technical point I am reasonably certain that it would be 'illegal' to advertise those albums in imperial measure

    > Cannot see anywhere near prices that are quoted if the prices include GST, or not. I am reasonably certain that it is still mandatory to state that on advertising such as your website

    > On the matter of GST, you mention that you have an ABN, but you might not necessarily have registered for reporting GST - if you do not know the and outs of that I suggest that you investigate

    > Personally I prefer "color" being spelled "colour" - I'd argue that of the Australian Clients who would be prompted to make any comment or even think about it; those people would be adverse to "color" but those who spell the word "color" way would not really notice if it were spelled "colour"

    I think that meeting people surpasses all other forms of marketing especially at the 'set-up' stage - so I would suggest that you put effort into making " 'minor' networking" your " 'major' networking" - I am totally ignorant of the allocation or spread of the Turkish community in Melbourne - but arguably you'd be best to begin there within those groups. My experience is that most Turks like their coffee - that's always a sensible starter to a useful conversation.

    Nice portfolio. Good luck.

    Thank you very much William.
    Details are so important.
    I should set my mind correctly.

    Welcome to Aus. I hope it goes well for you :-)
