Today’s show is a special episode—this is essentially the audio version of the Facebook Live webinar that I’m putting on with Design Aglow to walk through my four step process for selling more products to my clients without using in person sales. Listen in for quick tips, or jump over to the Facebook Live recording to see me, see the visuals, and leave questions.

What about portrait photographers?

A lot of you asked for a separate Style Guide Magazine template for portrait sessions, so you now also have the option to get the Portrait Style Guide Magazine that I’ve been using in my business for years – with a spruce up from the amazing designers at Design Aglow (click on “Options” to see this option). Here’s what it includes:

  • 28 pages of layered & editable Photoshop files designed to be printed as a mini-magazine to be mailed to clients or shared digitally. Magazines are designed to be printed as 5.375×8.25” MagCloud Saddle Stitched Pamphlets and to fit into an A9 envelope (these are easy to mail with a two ounce stamp – add in A9 stationary for a personalized thank you note).
  • Tips to prepare your portrait clients for a successful session, including what to wear, how to approach hair and makeup, and other helpful tips for a successful session.
  • Expectation setting to prepare your clients to purchase products after the session, whether in person or virtually (professionally written text is included for both options).
  • Home styling tips to inspire your clients to integrate print products into their own homes based on a curated list of best selling products.
  • 16 customizable mockups to insert your own images (a $160 value in itself – you’re free to use these on your website, in social media, or in other marketing).
  • 14 additional product stock images to use on your website, in social media, or in other marketing.
  • All layouts, embellishments, text, colors, and design elements are completely customizable.

This whole system has been a game changer for me over the past few years, and I’m excited to finally share it with you.

  • Style Guide Magazine template: This is the template that I use to print a small magazine to send to clients to give them final tips before their wedding day and to get them inspired about how to style my curated photo products into their home. Add your own images into the gorgeous product images, have it printed (we’ll tell you where), or send them the digital version to get them into the right mindset before you offer your products to them.
  • Customizable product images: Get access to more than 30 product images, including 19 images that you can customize with your own work. Use these images on your website or in social media to get clients excited about the products you offer.
  • Tips on how to create more value for your professional photo products so clients see why they should purchase professional products rather than do it themselves.
  • A complete course with the exact emails, steps and images you’ll need to set clients up for successful online product sales without having to be there for an in person meeting.
  • Access to a private Facebook group to ask me questions and give feedback on the course.
