With your businessʼs website and social media content more vital than ever before, this is a timely opportunity for you to hone in and adjust the content experience your ideal clients need to hire you for their project. This group program is structured to help you craft the content strategy your photography business needs, while also utilizing the cross pollination of collective thinking. You will be empowered with a spring board of purposeful content strategy and new supportive peers for these dynamic times.

Are You
Trying to position yourself as the best choice for your clients? An established photographer who is looking for new market opportunities? Having trouble understanding your sunk costs or best revenue streams? Unsure how to use your website as a marketing tool rather than a collection of images and information about you? Struggling to create or edit the images necessary to effectively connect your message with your ideal audience?

What you get

– A recap and recording of each group meeting
– Google doc worksheets to guide you and help you apply what you learn right away.

Schedule
Before the first meeting you will receive a questionnaire to complete and return.
Below is an outline of the topics that we will cover each week. Each stage is designed to help your photography business with key aspects of your ideal clients evolving needs. Since these are interrelated we will discuss them throughout the
program.

In addition to the 5-weekly meetings you will have 1-3 hours of collaborative worksheets to do with shared google docs. The more you put into these worksheets the more you will get out.

What kinds of clients do you work with?
I specialize in working with professional photographers, designers, artists and small businesses in commercial and retail markets. I work with professionals that recognize the significant role visual messages and written language play in branding, marketing, customer on boarding, customer experience, and customer retention. They also understand that their website and social platforms need to operate as a marketing tool that work together.

Do you know certain fields or markets best?
I have worked with all types of photographers from commercial to retail and fine art at mid-career and late career stages. This program will help any professional photographer who wants to refine their content strategy, marketing, and branding for the service of their clients.

Can I ask questions?
Everyone gets time to ask questions to myself and your peers. If you have a question that does not get addressed you can email me. One benefit of the group program is the contribution each member makes.

What types of personality do you work with best and what is expected of me?
The clients who have the best results are the ones who show up for themselves and for others. They are motivated to succeed and responsive to constructive criticism.

I approach every project with empathy, curiosity, and a mission to help you achieve your goals. I provide structure, guidance, support, and encouragement. Because I want you to succeed I will also offer constructive criticism. You are expected to be an active partner in the success of your goals. Your success depends upon many things, including your motivation and focus.

What materials do you offer?
You get access to a shared Google folder for recordings of each session and collaborative Google Doc worksheets.

What results can I expect?
You can expect to:

– Gain clarity and confidence about presenting what you offer and how to position your brand uniquely to your ideal clients.

– Understand your ideal clientsʼ needs and how to show them your unique
position to help.

– Attract more quality client leads and spend less time with unqualified leads.

– Understand how to use visuals and words on the different website platforms your ideal clients are learning about your business.
