ReBooting Your Business Brain:21st-Century Marketing Tips for Photographers Who Weren’t Born Yesterday

I’ll be presenting the latest version of my photography
marketing talk to the ASMP Kansas City/Midwest chapter.This new
talk is filled with updated strategies that you must have
to survive in today’s always-on, short attention span,
radically-changed, and economically challenging business
environment.

When:Thursday, April 23rd. Door open at 6:30 p.m. for social time. Program starts at 7:00 pm

Where: Johnson County Community College-Room CC211
12345 College Blvd
Overland Park KS 66210

This talk is geared to professional photographers who’ve been in the industry for over 15 years. Understanding how the marketing of images has so radically–and so swiftly– changed, can benefit these photographers the most; those who are concerned that in this economy, they can’t afford to “not know what they don’t know.”  They suspect that things are different when it comes to promoting their work in the digital age. But they’re not sure which strategies they should implement– and which ones they can ignore.

Nothing changes faster than online promotion. What worked
great last year might not be the best tactic this year.

At this event I’ll provide some tips, guidelines and
resources, on how to stay current.
In a recession when work is harder to find and pricing is
dropping daily, you can’t afford to shoot yourself in the
foot with an outmoded promotional strategy.
Buyers have
exponentially greater choices; don’t let them pass you by
because your online strategy is not as good as your
imagery.

Come join in!

I’ll be discussing how these changes have particularly affected photographers who’ve been shooting for over 15 years. These  photographers are the ones most deeply concerned that in this economy, they can’t afford to “not know what they don’t know.” They suspect that things are different when it comes to promoting their work in the digital age, but are not sure which things they should implement and which things they can ignore.

Nothing changes faster than online promotion. What worked great last year is not what works the best this year. At this event I’ll provide some tips, guidelines and resources, on how to stay current.

“Rebooting Your Business Brain” is headed “down under.”

I’m getting ready to head to New Zealand and Australia!
I’ve been invited to deliver “Rebooting your Business Brain” to the Auckland chapter of the AIPA. Modern marketing practices need to take into account that a visitor can come to one’s site from ANYWHERE in the world. Being more cognizant of local buyers’ preferences and expectations is important when developing a broad vision marketing plan.

I love having the chance to talk to creative image makers in other parts of the world. Both sides of the conversation are immeasurably enriched by sharing what it’s like in our own backyards. We’ll see our differences… but more importantly, we’ll get to see how much we’re all the same; we all share so many similar concerns and aspirations.

I hope to be able to post from the road.

Watch this space!
