    EP 041 - Why knowing your photography business numbers is the NUMBER ONE key to success

    EP 041 - Why knowing your photography business numbers is the NUMBER ONE key to success

    In this episode I’m talking to Colorado Springs photographer Amanda Lamb about her journey from being ‘too afraid to charge what she’s worth’ to leading her clients to spending more (and of course getting them what they want).

    We will be diving into the mindset shifts Amanda has had to experience and the importance of really knowing your numbers - in particular Amanda dives into how her entire pricing model factors in the break even point in her business and how she uses the ‘loss leader’ concept to entice her clients in for their first session.

Kelly Jones

Thank you so much for your podcast. I’ve learned a ton and am anxious to get started with in person sales! I have listened to the episode with Kelly Jones several times and would definitely like to hear more, especially how she markets to vacation goers and advertising in general. I appreciate all you are doing to educate us and make us more profitable!

A Must-Listen Podcast For Portrait Photographers

Chris Scott is incredible as a podcast host. His super-strength, though, is as an awesome business mentor for portrait photographers. Instead of just dumping information, Chris walks you through the exact steps (and I have followed them) to educate your clients and inspire them to invest in art work for their home. During the pandemic, it is Chris’ excited voice in my headphones that have gotten me off the couch time and time again to work on my photography business. Avoid the noise that’s out there, and listen to pure signal right here. Chris, thank you for what you do and do so well – you teach us to be better small business owners.
