Let me make one thing really clear: I want you as a client.

You probably found this through search (because that’s what I’m awesome at), or you found it through an ad that I ran on Facebook, LinkedIn, or somewhere else (I’m also pretty great at this too, because I run paid ads for clients all the time).

It didn’t make sense.  Why was he still struggling to provide for his family the way he wanted to? [click to continue…]


Ever wonder how good your marketing really is?

Marketing is difficult because you typically have to frontload a lot of work before you see results.  Should I invest time and money in building my online profile?  Will it get my more customers?  What about wedding wire or this or that or thumbtack or pinterest, or youtube, or or or snapchat?!?

After looking at over forty of the top photographers in the nation, I can say definitively:

Yes, online marketing matters in the photography industry.

For PhotoMBA, I ranked the top photographers in every major market based on their online presence.  Here’s how I did it… [click to continue…]
