Who doesn’t love listening to an Irish accent from someone full of wisdom and ideas for photography business success? I know I do. That is one reason I loved this interview with CEO of 3XM & BusinessSuccessAcademy, and vendor partner on the PPA Board of Directors.

I think you will love it as well.

This episode is a deep dive into how to REALLY attract great clients that will be happy to invest well in our photography. His vision is for a world where photographers can create sustainable and profitable businesses, where our skills and expertise as professional photographers are highly valued.

He lives for our success and wakes up every day with the mission of helping photographers worldwide create more successful businesses.

Some key points as we chat about successful photography business and such are

-the importance of marketing strategies

-why we need to know our numbers and start with the end in mind

-why lukewarm leads are far better than cold traffic

-Facebook advertising tips

-and why we want to ask WHY

Ronan…with his lovely Irish accent says that people that are blissfully unaware of what beautiful portraits can mean in their lives. We need to help them understand that wall portraits and album, beautiful printing photographs of people they love, are worth investing in and actually can change lives…one smile at a time!
