If words like ‘selling’, ‘sales’, ‘marketing’ and ‘targets’ evoke a sense of ick / sleaze / sliminess and just generally make you feel uncomfortable (or even bored), we hear you. As creatives, we just want to get out there, make our art and perfect our craft. With that said, how do we not just survive, but ~thrive~ in an industry that is ever-growing and evolving, without the ability to sell? It’s easier than ever before to create a business, but once your shiny new website is live and social media is setup, reality sets in and we realise that much of being an entrepreneur is sales and marketing.
We created this workshop to help you learn to sell authentically and in a way that doesn’t want to make you run for the hills. It doesn’t matter what stage your business is at, as our approach will benefit photographers at any level. You are your business and investing in yourself will only elevate your business and brand.
What you’ll get:
_ How to identify your ideal client, their buying habits and overcoming objections
_ How to price and maximise your sales of products, such as albums and prints, resulting in improved cash flow
_ The ins and outs of a sales process so that you can work smarter, not harder and implement this in your business.
_ You’ll benefit from open discussion with like-minded fellow photographers facing similar challenges
_ A seriously-good gift bag with exclusive offers from Lone Pine and partners
_ A one-on-one Skype session with Ryder after the workshop for additional support
9.00am – 4.00pm (the perfect balance between information and discussion)
