    E37 - Advertising and marketing your business, Systems we use to run our business, and a special update

    E37 - Advertising and marketing your business, Systems we use to run our business, and a special update

    In this episode, we have a couple more questions to answer from a couple of our esteemed subscribers. I also share a very special update at the very end of the episode about an interesting case with a disgruntled photography client who went out to take revenge. Before we get to the update we get to discuss marketing for your real estate photography business. What special actions can we take to maximize the impact of our marketing efforts? We also get into a very in-depth walkthrough on the business systems I am using with Zapier, G-suite, Calendly, and we also get into my CRM that I am currently using. If you have ever thought about automating some systems in your business, I share an overview of how it works in mine. Send in some questions if you want to get into more specifics.

    E34 - Listener Question - Office presentations - Scheduling software - and dealing with Competitors

    Got some great questions to answer from a listener of the podcast. We covered Office presentations, and what to do if you feel like you are striking out and not getting the number of presentations that you are looking for. We cover scheduling with Calendly, and how I set up my Calendly calendar. I also dived into the issue of competition.

    I had the opportunity to get a real estate photography business owner on the phone to discuss the business. Dave is from Alaska, and he currently has 11 team members in his business, and they are doing about 200 photoshoots per month. Dave reached out to me with a question about hiring employees as contractors, and about coaching. We covered both of those topics and more.
