Today I’m going to talk to you about an idea I had last year that has me truly excited!
The idea I had has been really “raw” for a really long time (so please be gentle 😉 ). However, did I mention that it’s got me SUPER excited? And how I’d love to involve you? Here’s the backstory… For several months, I’ve been getting private messages from people who have reached out with questions like:
or when I posted my end of year recap last year on my wedding blog, people asked:
While I do a lot of 1:1 coaching on how to book more weddings, I had never truly considered having a digital course and space for our community to learn and grow together. Of course, it’s something I wanted — I had just never given it a serious thought. Because, honestly, I’m busy. I delivered 31 weddings last year (without childcare for my toddler) and my associates and I have a combined 57 weddings this year. But then most of my spring weddings were rescheduled due to concerns over COVID and this freed up a lot of time for me from January through May. The more questions I got like this, the more my wheels began turning. I started to see a place where I could work closely with wedding photographers and I could dive into the ins and outs of creating a long-term marketing strategy that allows them to generate leads consistently and book out their years. A strategy that doesn’t involve paying for WeddingWire, TheKnot, or FB ads. The strategy I’ve been using, tweaking, and improving over the last 10 years of shooting weddings to book out my year and book weddings for my associate photographers, too.
Like I said, the whole course is still raw. But you see the potential right? I couldn’t stop thinking about where a course on how to book more weddings could lead us in 1 year, 3 years, or 5 years from now. It’s the progress you would all make by working with me on such a tight focus. I see so many educators offering courses on posing, editing, and lighting, but not a lot of courses specifically on how to book more weddings. On specific actions to take in your business to generate more leads so you can book out your year.
So here’s something I’m VERY clear on… I can’t do this alone and I don’t have all the answers about the course right now.
Currently, this idea is very rough around the edges. It’s definitely not perfect (yet) and there are many things I still need to work out. But the vision is there. And that’s why I’d love to extend an early invitation to you. I want you to be part of this… especially if you’re willing to help me shape this idea. Meaning, if you join me as a founding member and you’re willing to help contribute ideas on how I can make this THE best online program to support wedding photographers in filling up their calendars with bookings, I’m willing to extend a very favorable “founding member” price. When this offer is extended to the general public, I anticipate the starting price for this to be somewhere in the neighborhood of $500-$600 (which will be a no brainer given that I’ll be helping people build a solid marketing system for their business – oftentimes their first marketing strategy.)
Here’s the best part though… Join me today as a founding member and your price will be $247. So even when I do roll this out officially and at the higher price, you’ll have locked in the founding member price. As I said, all the details for this are not figured out yet. I have the raw content in a Google doc and I’ve filmed the three lessons in Module 1 but nothing final has officially been created. And I expect some of the best ideas will come from you and others who join me as a founding member. The goal is to officially launch this on May 11th. So between now and then, things will be happening fast and furious based on the ideas flowing back and forth between me and the founding members. With all that said, what I am clear about is how this course on creating a marketing system that generates leads consistently will help you make progress towards booking out 2022 (or even 2021 if you’re still working on bookings for this year). That’s what excites me and has me waking up early with my mind racing a million miles a minute. Years from now we’ll look back on this and say “do you remember when…”. And guess what, that all can begin here today.
