For photographers ready to thrive in these crazy, challenging times
Let me guess... you've experienced a roller-coaster of emotions these past six months as the world changes faster than the toddler you're trying to capture in a portrait.
Are you struggling to stay focused on your photography business in the midst of all the uncertainty?
Feeling confused about how to find high-paying clients, now that networking events and wedding fairs are a relic of the pre-COVID past?
Maybe you're a little lonely, stuck at home and unable to connect with other photographers at the workshops and events you'd normally attend?
I hear you. It's been a wild ride for all of us.
Right now, you also have an amazing, unprecedented opportunity to pause and look closely at your business. To shift your mindset. To throw out the things that weren't working, but you kept doing out of habit. To turn the hot garbage we're calling 2020 into... your best year yet.
Imagine yourself in six months with a fully booked calendar, engaged in fun and successful marketing efforts, with a flow of income and a comfortable amount in your savings account. Imagine the sense of peace you feel, because everything is working just the way you'd hoped...
Picture yourself having all the support you need from a wonderful group of new photography friends AND a trusted mentor, all of them pulling together to help you create the photography of your dreams, enjoying...
Think about how amazing it'll feel to know that you're experiencing even greater success and making more money in your photography business than ever before.
Singing your praises, a community of amazing, like-minded photographers at your side, and the knowledge that while the world outside is in flux, you're investing your time brilliantly to build a profitable business you're proud of.
Ready to sign up or learn more about the program?
And for less than the cost of 2 fancy coffees per day, here's what you'll get...
With each call, you'll get a specific, proven marketing strategy along with details on how to successfully execute them. You'll also have time to ask any questions you might have about your newly delivered strategy. These are recorded so you can listen over and over again.
Then, you'll have an opportunity to be in the "hot seat." That's where you'll receive your specific ideas and challenges from the group, and receive uniquely tailored suggestions and feedback. You will also be part of a think tank for others. This is where the real magic of a mastermind group happens.
This is NOT a cookie-cutter, self-study marketing program with a rigid curriculum unrelated to your specific business. It's a small business support group, where I leverage nearly 40 years of experience to serve as your mentor and teacher, and other passionate photographers rally together as your "teammates." I've seen it time and again: a wonderful alchemy takes place when a small community of like-minded creatives come together for a common purpose.
You'll have plenty of new marketing ideas with the specific action steps you need to easily and effectively attract your ideal clients. (You know... the clients that pay you the BIG BUCKS and truly love your photography.) And you'll walk away with a personalized program for success in your specialty, so that your biggest dreams for your business, AND your life, come true
“With Luci's help, we went from one lead at last year's horse show to 62 leads this year, 28 of which were very qualified (who would have thought about qualifying leads?)! Our first job using your system outline, we made a $6,000 sale. Lots of hugs and a big thank you.”
—Sean Michael Pushor, GOODog Photography
Like you, I once struggled to find great prospects and turn them into enthusiastic clients. You know, the kind of clients happy to pay four or five figures for quality photography.
So, I studied with mentors. Learned how to master the (daunting, at the time) art of in-person sales. Created a unique marketing and sales approach that fit my business.
And I created a network of friends in the business. People to bounce ideas off of. Friends who shared what was working for them. Friends who—and this was critical—helped me avoid the costly mistakes that they'd made.
You know what? It changed everything.
As a full-time photographer, I've sold many thousands of wall portraits and albums over the last 38 years. Most of my clients buy three to eight wall portraits and an album.
And after they've given me a heaping pile of money? They give me an enormous hug!
As a specialized sales and marketing coach, I'd love to help YOU create a highly profitable photography business. So you can start filling your calendar, notching those high-dollar sales, and loving the life your business affords you.
And your income and marketing ideas will flow because of the following...
An experienced mentor who's "in your corner" with solutions, ideas, and income-building strategies specifically for you and your niche, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.
A warm, friendly community of like-minded, enthusiastic photographers to inspire and support you. You'll learn from their experiences, and lean on the power of connection to keep your spirits high, and ideas flowing.
It seems counter-intuitive, but the more we give, the more we receive. You'll benefit not only by learning from others, but also by supporting them in turn and offering valuable feedback. You'll be amazed by how much joy that seemingly simple act brings you, and how energizing it is for your business.
A private Facebook group just for mastermind group members. There, you'll get direct help from me, connect with others in the program and celebrate your big wins—and I promise, they're coming!
If you choose to pre-pay at least 6 months in advance, you'll also get a one-on-one Strategy Session with me, where we'll define your ideal clients, set your goals and refine your pricing for maximum profitability (a $450 value).
“I’m not quite sure where to begin to describe how wonderful and valuable Luci is. My business was established, but I was lacking the skills to bring it to the next level. Luci taught me how to communicate with clients, set my goals, reach my target market and run a financially successful photography business. She has changed my career and life forever.”
—Meredith Dickins, Ashland, KY
“What Luci Dumas does is MAGIC. Today, a client came in and INVESTED in me. It all came together. She spent more than I used to make from 5 clients. Luci knows what she's talking about and when you listen to her, amazing things happen. If you've been fighting with yourself about whether or not to invest in her coaching, let me tell you... DO IT. IT'S SO WORTH IT.”
—Lacey Sawyer Fincher, Norfolk, VA
“When I hired Luci in 2016, I reported a loss every year. She created the foundation for the business that I have today. Everything almost that I do I learned from her in one way or another. In 2018, I reported a $240,000 gross income, $350 average to average sales in the thousands. Hiring Luci was the best business decision that I made.”
—Erin Bonilla, Suffolk, VA
