Free instagram Course for professional photographers!

 
 

I get so many questions about my Instagram. You see, about a year ago I only had 900 followers. Most people I had already known from Facebook and high school. But no “fans” or people who would potentially want my photography services.

I wasn’t getting any interaction on my Instagram. No one would like my photos and I definitely was not getting any bookings from Instagram or even any acknowledgment. I would see these other people with so-so photos and info, and they would have a ton of likes and comments. I did what any mature and rational person would do, and with my hairdresser Sara, chalked it up to them buying likes and followers with one of those apps. 

You see, once I hit 900 followers I kind of hit a plateau and my followings stopped. My Instagram was basically stagnant. If I did get likes and comments it was either someone who was trying to grow their Instagram account, or just spam. No one was even excited enough to email me for my pricing!

However, I like Instagram. I could see other people getting a ton of engagement and traffic to their sites, I just had no idea how to build my community or get any kind of engagement. I felt like the unpopular kid in school that got picked last to be on the dodge ball team.

So I had enough! I had watched Mean Girls and other shows about nerdy girls who then turned popular. Ok, maybe I was forced to watch Sixteen Candles by an ex-boyfriend a few too many times, but that is another story.  But what I decided, was that all of these characters just decided they had enough, and they were done getting looked over.

After spending tons of $$ on the Knot and other paid marketing sites,  and then having nothing to show for it except for a negative cash flow, I had no choice but to figure something else out. So I dropped all of my paid marketing and changed my whole game plan.

In the next few months after coming up with a master plan to be myself, and not be afraid to show my true self and true brand...the results were amazing! I had the most amazing clients finally finding me and loving my work. They already felt like friends, because we knew each other and I started having blogs and other media opportunities contacting me. These easy and small tweaks made such a change in my business and my quality of life I can’t wait to share them with you in my new free workshop. I was getting inquiries that started with “do you have that date available” vs “what is your pricing”. We all know how big that is when you are working for yourself!

After doing these easy tweaks I was able to turn leads away. Finally, I have that "red rope policy" with the clients I take, instead of the "will work for peanuts policy". I now have 2 virtual assistants to help me keep up with my inbox and all that I have coming in. But, most of all I have a life again. I can breathe and know everything is going to work out. Even if this one client is to much to handle, they will pass and in a matter of time I will have someone awesome come in.

I want you all to learn from my wasted time and mistakes and hopefully take advantage of my free workshop. In this class I start with the very basics of how to get your profile rocking and how to start laying out your Instagram magazine to tell your brand's story.
