Possible Business of Photography Workshop

view profile

UPDATE: Saturday, June 25th is the sheduled date, and the fee looks like $99 for members. Contact me if you possibly will be attending as the more we get, the more flexible we can be with the workshop fee!

The DPI is trying to secure business management and marketing speaker Chris Meyer of CM Photographics and the Digital Wedding Forum. Chris will give information on sales tactics/techniques, pricing, marketing (especially guerrilla style), to things like managing client expectations, providing amazing customer service, and building a referral network that actually works. Chris was the youngest person ever to be asked to speak at the Digital Wedding Forum national convention. Following his speaking engagements, he was approached by Facebook and their PR firm and was subsequently chosen as the featured case study on Facebook marketing and has grossed over $120k from Facebook clients off of less than $2000 in total advertising. If you are interested in attending this workshop, please let us know!

Yes, I know it all depends on date and $$.

So it looks like the price of such a workshop will be around $149 for DPI members.

How many would sign up, given they are available on the date scheduled?

If not, what would be the highest $$ you would go? If we get enough people to sign up, we could lower the session fee.

Thx

Add $20 and it includes a one year membership. ($20 for DPG members, that is.)

Yeah, I know, in other words, join and then you pay the regular fee for the workshop. :) At this annual fee, I don't see the need to have another "non-member" rate.

Although I've been a poor DPG flickr participant, I am totally game for this. I've been finishing school/part-timing/backpacking (I know, excuses, excuses) and now I'm back in Duluth and ready to take my business to the next level. Is this still in the works? My name is Bailey, by the way :)

As of now, it is set for June 25th like 10:00am to 5:00 pm (with a lunch break on your own) and will be $99 for members, $139 for non-members (this includes a 1 year membership.) We are still negotiating the final numbers, but a good showing of support here would bode well for being able to reduce the workshop fee. Please let me know if you are planning on attending! Thank you!
