Ana Brandt challenged Photographers this year to spend 15 days marketing their business.
"It really pushed me to step far and away from my comfort zone. I’m so timid with social media that it really inspired me to get over myself and get done what needs to be done for my own growth as a business. I’m so excited to go back through the whole course and take even better notes so I can continue to do this throughout the year, your marketing calendar is going to be so useful! I laminated each month and stuck it in my passion planner. I would say cleaning up my website and social media really helped me realize that I am worth something, I do have a good eye and I am constantly improving. Flip it will take the most time to get used to for me, I just need to play with it more to understand it better." Victoria
"I really liked the organizational aspects of the class and the push to be present on social media. I Hope that I can continue to grow my email list so I can reach more people with my newsletter.
My biggest takeaway would be scheduling social media posts! When I’m able to afford some of the auto schedulers, I will definitely use them! I’ll use facebooks as its free but I love the Pinterest one!" Beth
"This challenge pushed me way out of my comfort zone, but it was so worth it! I have had 8 new email subscribers this week and I know it wouldn’t have happened without this course! It is so wonderful to have not only a course and wonderful teacher that pushes you, but a group to work with + hold you accountable for getting it done! This was such a challenge, but so much fun. It made you think outside the box and put yourself out there again! LOVED IT!!! My biggest takeaway were some of the websites that help you with contests. I know that may sound silly, but I had no idea they existed and it is SO much easier to keep track of contests through Rafflecopter which is the one I chose to try! Facebook live video was another one. I have always been too scared, but knowing that a group was scared with me and we all did it anyways was totally worth it + slightly invigorating!" Amanda
"I love this challenge , I also made it a goal to do every day on that day it wasn’t easy but I’m so glad I did it! It pushed me to get things done and to find many new ways to better my marketing. I found I could have an on line store, I made more new tabs with links to buy now or so people could know about upcoming specials. Even though the live video scared me I can’t wait to do another. This challenge gave me more confidence in marketing and putting my self out there more. I will keep up on my newsletter, and keep everything up to date. Thank you again Ana " Mira
