Big Marketing Ideas on a Small Budget

with Carol Andrews, M.Photog.Cr., ABI

Today's marketing is all about your clients and community involvement...and how your business benefits from the events and opportunities you create. Nope, it's not about huge advertising budgets. It's about creating low-cost publicity, getting your customers to market for you, and gaining positive profiles in your community.

A PPA member since 1986, Carol Andrews has served many roles in professional photography. For instance, she has been a PPA Studio Management Services (SMS) Consultant since 2005. And in addition to her membership in the Texas Professional Photographers Association (of which she was on the Board) and leadership in different PPA committees, she was the 2006 Chairman of the PPA Business Initiative Committee. Carol is currently serving as a member of PPA's Board of Directors.

Making Money Matters!
Graham Wilson and Kellyann Foe

If you're not making enough money, it's probably your own fault!
Remember, efficiency is the key to success...and we can help you with that. Come learn a few simple principles that have pushed our studio to over $1 million in just five years (with only five full-time employees).

"Getting over $1 million for senior sales in a very competitive market, in a struggling economy, and in a remarkably short time is unheard of these days. But Graham and his staff do just that--and they also keep a higher percentage of the sales as net profit. I highly recommend you listen to this entrepreneurial genius as he lets others in on his 'Making Money' secrets in Senior Photography."
