Shannon Ryan loves Photography. When she had her first son, she knew she no longer wanted to work in retail management. The job drove her crazy and the hours were just not flexible enough for her to make enough time for her growing family. When she put her love for Photography and the want she had to stay home with her son, she decided to begin her journey into becoming a professional Photographer. She took the leap and never regretted it.
PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS REALLY CALLS TO MOMS WHO WANT TO STAY HOME WITH THEIR KIDS, BUT NEED TO BRING IN SOME EXTRA INCOME. THE PROBLEM IS, NOT TOO MANY OF US KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO GO ABOUT RUNNING OUR OWN BUSINESSES. SHANNON, WHEN DID YOU START FEELING STUCK IN YOUR JOURNEY?
I realized that I needed to make more money. My husband had recently had a huge cut in his income, and our house was headed towards foreclosure, and we were on government assistance. It was scary. I knew I needed to change what I was doing in my business.
HOW TO MAKE MORE MONEY, IS WHAT MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS STRUGGLE WITH. WHEN YOU DECIDED TO TAKE PROFITOGRAPHY, WHAT WAS THE MOST VALUABLE THING YOU LEARNED?
I learned how to price my products and my time. I knew what I wanted to make, and I learned how to price accordingly. I was taught how to make my collections so that my clients would find them valuable enough to purchase.
WHEN WE KNOW WHAT WE NEED TO MAKE, IT IS EASIER TO CHARGE WHAT WE ARE WORTH. SHARE WITH US YOUR BIGGEST WIN SINCE TAKING PROFITOGRAPHY.
My biggest win was making higher average sales. I went from a $500 average sale, to a $1600 average sale! I even have had several $2600 sales! All thanks to what I learned from Profitography.
AMAZING! WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE ANYONE THINKING OF ENROLLING IN PROFITOGRAPHY? IS IT WORTH THE INVESTMENT BOTH IN TIME AND MONEY?
It is so worth the investment. Do the work and believe in yourself and the process. I work much less now, and make more money! I even have to turn down work. I was offering print products to my clients before this class, so even if you already to that, there is something for you to learn. There is nothing better than making what your worth, and having time with your family!
WE ARE SO HAPPY THAT YOU ARE PROFITING FROM PROFITOGRAPHY! WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE A TESTIMONY FROM A CLIENT.
“Shannon was the perfect person to capture my kids in their first professional photo session. Wonderful experience. Kids had fun. So exciting to see my kids through the eyes of an artist. Shannon was very helpful picking out the perfect photo package for my family. I can’t wait to see the final heirloom quality pictures. Soooo excited! Thanks, Shannon!”
