I've been so busy between portrait sessions, my part time job, and my household, that I've hard hardly any time to think about anything else. However, I'm transitioning to doing more work helping small businesses, including photographers, with their online marketing and I'm super excited about the direction I'm moving in.
One of the things I have at the top of my list as I work on my new projects is to update the directory of photographers offering photography classes currently hosted at my training site I Want to Shoot My Kids. I have big plans on make the directy more robust and a better resource for moms looking to take a photography class!
It is a great time of year to get your training program in place. You can not only offer gift certicate for a class or private tutorial for those looking for gift ideas for the holidays....but you can be ready to go in January when lots of moms are looking for a photography class after getting a new camera for Christmas. Last January, which is usually a quiet low revenue month, I saw a huge increase in activity in my training department so my revenue was much improved.
