with Maria Sampaio, M.Photog.M.Artist.Cr., CPP
So you think there is no money to be made in photography? I beg to differ. After running a studio in Pittsburgh, PA for 13 years, I dropped everything I had and decided to start over in the South. Why you ask? Because I never wanted to see a snowflake EVER again. That was the only reason. I made great money at my studio. But I sold my brand and my commercial property and started over with.... ZERO clients. I enjoyed almost immediate success implementing the Marketing skills I knew worked - and they did. I have great sales averages and LOVE helping other artists achieve the same! In this community it is very important we stick together - especially in these crazy times! Join me for this class (Also, I highly recommend the part II for full understanding)
I will walk you through EXACTLY what I do when it comes to FREE or low entry sessions and how I consistently acheive a $2500 sales average.
Part 1 (this class- Sep 17th) will cover: (1) The Marketing (2) The psychology of the marketing (3) Info and more leading up to the session (4) How I photograph for profit
Part 2 (Sep 18th class) will cover: (1) How I prepare files for high sales (2) What I say and how I sell in the sales room to achieve great averages. (3) Customer appreciation
This two day class is only truly effective when BOTH are taken side by side. They are two days JAM PACKED with Marketing and tips which will bring you results you will immediately enjoy! That's a PROMISE.
Course Items: Your brain. An open mind. A pen and a notebook.
Note: Must wear a smile!
Optional: Camera and laptop., money for lunch
