1-on-1 Business Mentoring
(Ideal for photographers, florists, wedding vendors and other small businesses)
Do you feel stuck? Like something is wrong in your small business and you can't figure it out. Do you need someone to sit down with you and look over your website, marketing pieces, etc and talk about your current and past plans?
We will discuss your goals and where improvements need to be made. We will make a plan of action on how to get your business to the next level.
I have over 20 years of business and marketing experience. I have helped several other businesses grow. Feel free to shoot me an email with your website and what you are having trouble with and I'll let you know if I feel like I can help you. I'm not here to just make a buck, I want to make sure that I can genuinely help you and I will not take you on if I don't feel like I can help you. That being said, a lot of people have a hard time taking criticism/feedback--believe me, I get it, and I will be as kind as possible, but sometimes when something isn't working it's because something needs to change and you need to be open to change.
You will leave with a plan of action to get your business moving.
*If you need any package customized, like you need help with lighting or IPS, please contact me about a custom made package.

Add on a GoodGallery website, $750. I will set up your site with images and text and walk you through it so you will know how to change things on your own. While I'm doing the site, I may clean up your text and optimize it for keywords. I'll also show you how to do everything I'm doing so you aren't dependent on someone in the future! (Website and domain fees are extra and paid for by you.)
Socialbee add on. Want to automate your posts to social media, including Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, Google and Linkedin? Yep, you can do that and save tons of time! I'll even include a meeting to walk you through setup and how to do it. $400 for walkthrough and setup (up to two hour meeting where you'll get to upload some of your images). $250 for every year after. Please note, I do not own Socialbee, and have a very limited number of accounts I can provide at a discount rate like this.
EBook for In Person Sales For Photographers
I recently wrote an ebook with exactly my process and also lots of advice from other photographers on how they do IPS. Includes sample emails, pricing templates and more! Check that out here.
Client/Photographer Student Example
Rachel got into photography this last year and immediately started mentoring with me. She helped with photo shoots and sat through a sales session. She was shocked. She didn't think that she could actually make any money. I showed her what to say and what to do. She did a photo shoot at a park and then came in to do the sales session at my studio, while I sat there with her. This not only meant I could help her with the software she was still learning to use, but help her pick the right words to say to the client.
The client paid $200 for the session. She turned it into an $800 sales session, making $1,000 total:
I took Christy’s IPS class last year and was shocked at how much money I have been leaving on the table by not selling in person. Christy’s IPS class was very eye opening. She did a great job explaining sales tactics and the psychology behind the in-person sales process, as well as what types of software to use and how to showcase sample products to maximize sales. She walked me through a mock sales session and even attended and coached me through my first IPS session. Because of her help, that session went from a $200 shoot-and-burn sale to an $800 IPS sale. I would highly recommend her class as it has made a phenomenal difference in my photography sales.
