Pricing for family lifestyle photographers

4th > 13th January 2023

£95 - 10 spaces available

 

Ditch the procrastination and worry about your pricing!

Join us online this January as we go into a huge amount of gritty detail about how to apply an adaptable and profitable pricing model that actually works. 

Over two weeks, we'll be covering why an effective pricing model is a whole lot more than just having a look at the local market, copying someone else's pricing or just counting your 'overheads'.

 

YOU CAN EXPECT TO LEARN:  

  • The in's and outs about our magic 5 pricing model, how it was figured out, why it works, what has to happen behind the scenes to make it work and how you can apply it to fit the stage you are at now.

  • The psychology of our upgrade packages and how to create them to suit your client base and niche.

  • What goes on with culling a client gallery and how we make decisions easy for the client.
  • How to include printed products for your clients and make it simpler for yourself.

  • Exactly how we communicate value, the language tweaks you can use to enhance your sales.
  • An adaptable gallery upgrade email template that really works.
  • The pro's and cons of  mini sessions and how to price them strategically.
  • How and why you should price your services based on your quality of work, and client experience.

So what do we know and why are we dedicating a whole course to this?
Lisa has ten years as a dedicated family photographer under her belt. She's was one of the first photographers in the  UK family photography market to successfully introduce a 'hybrid' pricing model, and has been instrumental in many other successful photographers (and mentors) pricing strategies and over-hauls through the years.

Where she began, Carley quickly came up to speed . Putting her own business brain and previous experience in the finance sector to use, Carley has adopted Lisa's pricing strategies super fast.

She's succeeded not only as a leading family lifestyle photographer but also made huge progress in winning profitable commercial contracts and growing her in-home studio. 

Together we've tried, tested, tweaked, and adapted our pricing and many others pricing models based on different business goals, shooting styles and geographical locations.

We believe that one of the pillars of running a profitable family photography business is positioning yourself in the market based on a variety of different factors - not just where you live or how long you've been shooting for.

You want in? Good! Because we are very excited! This course will be a game changer for so many photographers. How do we know this? Because it already has been for our previous alumni during our workshops and mentoring.

YOU'LL RECEIVE FROM US:   

  • On the 4th of January you'll receive access to a mix of pre-recorded videos lessons and online learning modules. These will be stored on your own learning portal. (Any future courses online or in person will also be stored here) 
  • A live and recorded two hour group zoom call on the 13th January 11am, with the other attendees to ask specific questions relevant to your business and hear the advice provided to others.
  • Step by step actions to get you going with overhauling your pricing and packages.
  • Honest feedback and direct advice relevant to your pricing strategy. 
  • Access to any updates we make in the future. 

Location: At home! This will be something you log in to and learn and also attend live online with a recording available.
