In this series of blog posts we are introducing people who are speaking at and attending Inspire 2014. Today we’d like to introduce you to Beth Fitzgerald of Blush Imagery and the Maine Wedding Company who will be leading a workshop on Competing in a Competitive Market
Look, it's time to toughen your shit up!
The days are going by fast and nothing is getting done. Your materials, style, and Lordy, that website of yours is a hot mess. Your energy and time is being wasted on anything and everything that won't amount to a better business for your family. Your weighted down, overwhelmed and heading into another season of praying for bookings and then just getting by. Enough is enough.
I have been there. But over 13 years, I have focused what I really want, so much so, that I can consistently count on the revenue each year that supports my family— down to the dollar.
You can be confident in yourself and your business too. If you're not the best photographer in your market or the hippest, that's ok! So you are not getting $8K brides, who gives a rat? There is a place for you. And, in the real world you may make more money than that guy anyway.
Lost on the 90210 world of photo stars and sparkly speakers, is the fact that photography is a business. Buying photography comes down to a simple consumer decision. There are real ways to connect with your consumer. There are real ways that you can attract more traffic to your website; real ways to book more. There are real ways to focus your energy and your time.
Let's get focused. What I love about Inspire is that the team behind it and the speakers brought to it are real and down-to-earth. They are truly ready and there just to help you. It is a three-day, balls-to-the-wall, boot camp to get where you want to be next. And, where you are going to be next is amazing.
Last year my class was packed and received wonderful reviews. We do insightful exercises, have honest discussions, learn real SEO tips plus more. We fit so much in this fast-paced seminar. I hope you will attend it Wednesday at 1:30 pm.
And yes, stop me and bug me in the halls at Inspire. I promise, I'll totally help you.
