Check out the webinars coming up this month:

 August 3, 2017 - 2pm ET
Budgeting has wrongly earned a negative connotation, yet it's the essential tool every photographer and family needs to bring their dreams, goals, and values to life. Lindsay Betz will cover the "how" and "why" for budgeting and make it a simple, exciting (and even creative!) endeavor. Whether you are a seasoned business owner with retail space and employees, or solo photographer who wears all the hats, this is one webinar you don't want to miss.

August 10, 2017 - 2pm ET 
This webinar will take you through the whole process: from the first client meeting, to photographing the session, to client ordering, and finally to delivery. Clark Sander's processes are kept pretty simple, even down to the price sheet and product offerings. He will show you techniques he's learned from lots of talented photographers and business people over the years!  

August 15, 2017 - 2pm ET 
Manie Kohn, USA's First Trained, Certified and Insured Civilian Drone Pilot (USAToday, NBC, etc.) will share ACTIONABLE tips, strategies and resources, which he has used personally, to help you understand the drone space, the business of drones for the creative, and how to stand out from your competitors.  

August 22, 2017 - 2pm ET
Are you confused about what marketing actually is? Is it a logo, brochure, website... or something else entirely? Learn (and truly understand) what marketing is with this webinar! Andrea Taylor, CPP will take you through the difference between marketing, sales, and branding. Once you truly understand what is and how it all works, you will be able to make your own decisions about marketing for your business.  

 August 24, 2017 - 2pm ET
 Solid-state storage is the primary medium for capturing and preserving unique and valuable content for the professional photography industry. These many flavors of NAND, flash-based, solid-state devices are typically more reliable than hard-disk drives, but unexpected problems and data loss can still occur. Weston Moyer and Chris Bross will explore the maintenance, troubleshooting, best practices, and data recovery from common solid-state storage devices. You will learn what to do if a failure does occur, the steps you can take to resolve it, and when to engage a professional data-recovery service. 

These webinars are coming up soon, so head on to PPA.com/Webinars to sign up today! (And if you miss a scheduled live session, never fear. All live webinars are included in the PPAedu course library, free for PPA members!)
