Program: Mighty Mini Sessions
Meeting: 6:30 pm
Program: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
This program explains how mini session events can be a mighty staple in any studio. The system is not about turn and burn but developing a meaningful, lasting relationship with families that grows into long-term and valuable clients. During this program your membership will learn how to successfully navigate through a mini session event. I will explain how to develop a budget and why staying on it for each event is the key to profit. In this program I share affordable, creative, and effective marketing strategies for maximum bookings. I teach how to create a product catalog just for mini sessions that sell unique and quality signature heirlooms without competing with full-sized sessions. I walk through how to sale in person immediately after the session for maximum profits and discuss work flow on retouching to delivery.
