In a digital world where photographers services are often undervalued & unappreciated by consumers, effectively communicating and educating your clients
is an essential part of running a successful studio. How much is your 8x10? Do I get all of my pictures on a cd? These are two of the many questions photographers constantly hear, dread
and most often do not know how to respond to. Spend a day with Certified Professional Photographer & Framer, Abbie Thomas, and learn how to address these questions & set yourself up for sales success! High
anxiety phone calls, and disappointing sales appointments can be a thing of the past if you are communicating effectively with your clients. Each point of contact you have with a client will directly impact your sales appointment, and those points of contact will be deconstructed in this seminar. You will walk away with:
-An initial phone call script that will weed out bargain hunters, and encourage your ideal clients to book
-Consultation tips & tricks that will breed trust in your services & get your clients thinking about preserving a legacy instead of worrying about price.
-Email & Contract must haves!
-Session one liners that will excite your clients about purchasing products
-Sales session techniques to help raise your average sale, and to close the sale on the spot
There is an art to selling your art! With live demos & hands on activities, this class is sure to have an instant impact on your business & on your stress level!
