About Me

Hey there!  I'm Kelly, the creator of this Marketing Guide. Nice to "meet" you!

I am a bit of a marketing nerd and I truly believe that as a photographer, your marketing plan is more important than your photography skills. Think about it ... If you become a PHENOMENAL photographer but you have no marketing skills, how are you going to get clients?

After studying Strategic Communications and Public Relations in college, I worked as a PR and Social Media Specialist for a non-profit. Years of continued education and practice enabled me to launch a successful full-time photography business and surpass my income that I made at my previous job. You can do that too!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I see marketing advice online all the time. How is this different?

A: This guide is geared SPECIFICALLY towards photographers, so each campaign idea is tailored to your industry. It also includes action steps for everything and instructional videos/worksheets/etc. to help you succeed just like I did!

Q: When will I start seeing results?

A: If you truly put in the work and complete each of the action steps leading up to your campaign launch, you should start seeing results by the time you finish the book. That means you could see results within 30 days if you complete the daily actions consecutively. If you work a day job, take care of children, or see this as a part time gig right now, it will likely take you up to 3 months. That's normal!!! The more time you spend on each step, the better results you will get.

Q: Does it work for wedding photographers?

A: It's made more for portraits/couples/families/etc., but wedding photographers can CERTAINLY see results with it. The only thing is that you may not see results as quickly since weddings are booked so far in advance.

Q: Do you guarantee success or offer refunds?

A: Because of the nature of this book, I cannot guarantee success and do not offer refunds. It's up to you to implement the steps and use the strategies in your business. What I can tell you is that I have never received a bad review and every customer has been extremely happy with their business growth after purchasing!

Q: Does it require me to spend money on my business?

A: Nope!! That's the beauty of it. Every marketing strategy I teach in this book is free. Paid advertising can be an amazing push for your business one day, but as a beginner it's not necessary.
