Why make before and after photos

Having before and after images show potential clients the true value of your services. 

Here’s why you should make before and after images for your service business:

  • Showcase your skills and the effectiveness of your services by using before and after images on your marketing materials.
  • Build trust with potential clients and show them why they should invest in your services.
  • Provide a visual record of the work that was completed. Attach these images to your client file and share them on your invoices to show your clients the work was completed.
  • Improve your customer satisfaction. Happy clients are more likely to refer your services to friends and family.
  • Stand out from the competition by demonstrating your work through before and after photos.

4 ways to use your before and after photos

Now that you know how to create before and after photos, you’re ready to use them. Here are some ideas to help you get started:

  • Use pictures in your marketing materials. Show before and after photos of your work on your flyers, door hangers, postcard and email marketing, and other widespread advertising pieces.
  • Add photos to your business website to prove the quality of your work and show potential clients what you can do for them (and offer online booking to close the sale).
  • Share images on social media. Post your before and after images on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter so your followers can see your services in action.
