About This Class

Are you a photographer who is tired of trying all the SEO tricks and social media tactics to get clients to find your business online? You are not alone!

I was stuck in the same rut until I tried a simple approach to getting more photography clients. So I picked up a telephone and called prospects who could use my photography services - and it has truly worked!

(Watch the entire video course to see my latest exciting project I landed with cold-calling).

This course will show you step-by-step how to:

  • Target your ideal clients.
  • Find their contact info.
  • Write a script for a sales call (yes, you are in sales!).
  • Get over the fear of cold-calling.
  • Master the follow-up process.

There is nothing wrong with using digital marketing to get customers to find your website. But that is a lengthy, confusing, and time-consuming process. Cold-calling, on the other hand, is a simple process. You ask a real human being to hire you (with the proper technique). They say "yes" or "no" then you move forward.

I was not a sales expert when I began cold-calling and pitching my photography services over the phone. With no training, I jumped in because I was fearful of having to get a regular "9 to 5 J-O-B" if I could not grow my business!

This course will help you grow your photography business too. All you have to do is try something new. I know you love taking photos. So let that passion give you the courage to try cold-calling. It worked for me and it can work for you if you follow my course action steps.

*This course was created by Johnny and Shane McLendon for all those photographers who might give up on their photography business if they cannot get consistent work. We don't want anyone to give up on their passion.
