Most photographers discount the lonely photobooth as an after-thought product. However, the photobooth requires no explanation to clients on the functionally, the value added to their event or the fun results. Capitalizing on marketing simplicity and offering additional services to provide turnkey imagery solutions, personalized for their occasion, will pave the way for exceptional customer satisfaction in this six-digit income genre.
You will learn EVERYTHING needed to create a successful experience for your client, making you the ONLY choice for all future event needs, along with portrait, headshot and furry family member photography bonuses. Starting with the required equipment to cover big corporate gigs to the streamline workflow to quickly photograph multiple event groups using Darkroom software.
The Why, How and Process of capturing a part of the most challenging and rewarding photography genre. Jamie will explain in detail how the “hub and spoke” system for event coverage functions, based on the photobooth model.
Learn to print on demand while on location, so each attendee walks away impressed holding a personalized “marketing piece” from your business. Every event is a branding and marketing strategy to book your next month worth of income. Even if you have never thought about this type of service, you will get the marketing plan to start running with minimum effort, by adding benefits to organizers with photo-booths, balloon towers, staff headshots, on-site printing, video, etc. In fact, you could implement one of these ideas to book an event in your area BEFORE leaving Texas School.
