What you missed...

If you didn't tune in to our Free Webinar hosted by professional photographer and marketer Kirk Russell, you missed some great information such as:

...Images are not enough! Only showing images on your website forces your potential clients to choose based on price. The general public expects that if you are a professional, your images will be great. Tell them more!

...There are 4 basic categories of clients. Do you know who they are and how to reach them?

...You may love filters and special effects, but do your clients?

...Offering the same products and services as everyone else makes you equal at best, not better.

...Not seeing it does NOT force a call. If there is information missing from your website, your potential client will assume you don't have what they need and will move on to someone who does.

Don't be left in the dark! Join us for our next FREE marketing webinar this Thursday, June 4 from 1pm-2pm. You can register here:
