FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS: Complete Business Consultation | Mentoring Services
Complete Business Mentoring Package - Investment: $4500
For fellow photographers whose goals include turning their passion for photography into a successful online business, I offer a Comprehensive Mentoring Program and a Complete Website Review. In the short span of five years I took my passion for nature photography and built a highly successful fine art photographic print business with collectors of my work around the world and annual print sales near a half million dollars.
This level of success has afforded our family of four the ability to spend our precious time together at home or traveling the world instead of grinding away in an office or cubicle. While operating your own business of any kind takes dedication and continued hard work, I can honestly say that my worst days today are far greater than my best days were while working for someone else.
With over a decade of experience teaching fellow photographers both in the field and in the classroom, I offer a complete mentorship to highly motivated individuals looking to break into the field of fine art photography printing. The level of information and experience that I provide is greater than you would ever expect, holding nothing back from my road to success in this business.
Under my direction, in as short as six months’ time, prior students have seen growth of over 1000% in their SEO statistics/Web traffic, online print sales and overall revenue, building a budding online fine art business from the ground up.
How It Works | Complete Mentorship from Beginning to End
After discussing your goals and current situation to ensure we are a good fit working together, the process of mentorship begins. I begin by supplying a comprehensive notebook that outlines the general topics we will be covering during our time together. While you read through this 30+ page document, generating a list of preliminary questions for me, I will be analyzing and producing a complete analysis of your website, social media accounts, portfolio, current SEO structure and content.
Once we have completed these initial first steps, we will set up a series of phone calls in easily digestible blocks of 2 hours each as we go through all of the topics together in more depth. We will use Zoom, screen sharing, online tracking, SEO and analysis programs and other resources as needed throughout the process. Learning will be set at a pace you are comfortable with and can be completed quickly, or over an extended period of time as your put into motion the guidance I provide.
Once the bulk of the process has been completed, I will begin working on a customized step by step checklist outlining ongoing steps to take on a weekly, monthly and annual basis to continue to build your brand and your business going forward.
