ONE DAY INTENSIVE

"This is simply the best business workshop for wedding and portrait photographers..."  Mike Peyzner - www.chocostudio.com

This is not a typical workshop.  It's not a seminar.  If you're looking for a day of learning more about your camera and shooting pretty models - this isn't for you.

 

On the other hand, if you're ready to go deep - and get serious about your photography business, you can't afford to miss this.  You can't afford to NOT start out right.

Unlike most photography workshops, this isn't about photography.  It's based on business principles to help you build a profitable and sustainable photography business.

 

You'll leave with answers.  You'll leave with a PLAN.  You'll leave with the best practices and key strategies to help grow a business built to last. 

"This workshop gave me practical steps to organize and run my business"- Jessica Cudzilo  www.503photography.com

KNOWING YOUR NUMBERS

We'll start by helping define your goals.  Using that as the foundation, we'll get a grip on the numbers - including pricing, budgets, cash flow, expenses, and more.  We'll talk about how to understand and manage the financial health of your business, including de-mystifying financial reports (Balance Sheet, Income & Expense, and Cash Flow).  

Based on a solid understanding of your expenses and what it costs  you to be in business, we'll also talk about pricing strategy and help you develop pricing that works for your business.  

SETTING UP SYSTEMS FOR SUCCESS

You only have so much time, and we often find ourselves spending it on things that barely help us get by - and DON'T help us grow our businesses.  We'll talk about how developing efficient systems can help set your business up for real growth.

From workflow, to client management, to administrative tasks, we'll talk about how to set up your business to free up time to do the things that help you grow your business. 

MARKETING AND BRAND STRATEGY

Developing a brand - and a marketing strategy to support that brand - are key to finding the right clients.  We'll go through best practices in marketing and brand development - so that you'll leave with key principles you can put in to place immediately.

THE CLIENT EXPERIENCE AND SALES

The relationships you develop with your clients are about more than smiles and smooth talking.  We'll cover how we walk our clients through from inquiry to completion - and how we start the cycle over.  Our goal is to build clients for life.
