NOTE: I have decided to make this course free. I hope you take this information with the spirit is intended. I want photographers to be as successful as they can be. Good luck to all of you taking this course.
I think the information is vital for photographers who are being marketed to in a constant barrage of “Secrets” and “Easy Methods” and the snake oil of hype and glitz. There are no secrets, nothing this important is easy, and people who try to tell you there is a single way to success are simply full of it… and your money if you buy into the nonsense. Don’t be sucked in by the perkiness and the hype, becoming a successful photographer may be one of the most difficult career moves out there. But it can be done, IS being done every day be people who are prepared and willing to work.
The Real World, NO BS, Marketing Strategies for Photographers.
The title of this course says it all… this is a real world, no nonsense approach to marketing for the commercial photographer. While this course is fully implementable by photographers of all genres, the approach is for the emerging commercial photographer. Much of the information can be used by wedding and portrait photographers, however the main thrust of it is toward the editorial, corporate and commercial photographer in markets that are difficult to get a foothold in.
The class consists of video and worksheets designed to help you forge your own, personal approach to marketing and finding clients.
This course is not designed to be done quickly, and I suggest that you take a couple of months to complete it – based on how much outside work you are doing. The worksheets take time to complete and are instrumental in the design of your marketing strategy. Use them to educate yourself, and bring them to the Webinars for some individual discussion if you would like. There will be opportunities for further discussion on these points.
Video is used for a more narrative approach, and there are the worksheets that have been mentioned. The class is designed to go from beginning to end the first time through, then to be used as a resource for continuing in the specific areas the student is struggling with.
If you are wanting to create a business out of commercial photography, build a reputation, find and retain clients and have a complete working knowledge of how marketing a small, creative business is done, this course is for you. Whether you want to go full time or make a good part time income, creating and understanding your marketing strategy will save you time, money and heartache.
As a photographer, designer and marketer for small and medium businesses for forty years, I bring all of my experience and knowledge of this field into easy to understand videos. The work is hard, but the skills needed are presented in a way that make them accessible – and that benefits the busy student in many ways.
