ASMP-HTX Presents

Rebooting Your Business Brain 2.0 with Carolyn Potts

This event has passed. Its description is archived below.

Have you finalized your marketing plans for the new year? Do you know where to start? Who are your dream clients, how are you going to reach them and what are you going to say once you do?

How do the photo reps do it?!?

How do they manage to stay the course and nab those assignments in this era when the winds of change are blowing so fast?

Come hear former rep and current photo marketing consultant, Carolyn Potts, share winning behind-the-scenes strategies used during her 30 years of guiding top photographers through the last three 'worst downturns ever!'

In this completely updated version of her well-received and very popular seminar "Rebooting Your Business Brain: 21st-Century Marketing tips for Photographers" Carolyn brings her decades of photography marketing experience to the challenges facing photographers today.

"Your presentation was a great help in my quest to revitalize my outlook." RH

"Topical information that I feel is essential to my business. [She's] clearly an expert in this area" -TC

She'll discuss both the timeless (e.g., portfolio content and sales techniques) and the timely (online marketing tools and social media) issues that form the basis of any successful photography business.

She'll also discuss "the inside job" that every successful photographer has to do on a daily basis. E.g., it's the beliefs you hold about what's necessary and what's possible to succeed that, to a large extent, determine how far you'll go.

But wait, there's more! :) THERE'LL BE A FRIDAY AFTERNOON HANDS-ON WORKSHOP FOR A SELECT FEW MOTIVATED AND PROACTIVE PHOTOGRAPHERS on Jan 30th.

And finally, Carolyn is also available on Saturday for private, one-on-one PORTFOLIO REVIEW/MARKETING STRATEGY SESSIONS to completely focus on you and your business.
