    Slay Your Senior Biz

    Believe me, "Slay" is a good thing! Seniors and teens want to feel like they already know you before they even consider having you photograph them. Not only that but they want to know that you stay up to date with current style and fashion trends, and yes, even the most recent slang. Jaimy will go over her entire senior process and give you the tools to deliver a High-end senior experience whether you have a brick and mortar location or not! Learn how to slay your senior biz from pre-booking to shooting all the way through the final sale and product delivery. Special attention will be given to how she uses Instagram to connect with teens and the Senior Magazine she utilizes as a booking tool. Don't miss the chance to up your game and KILL IT in the world of seniors!

    In-Person Sales - Let's Get It Started!

     What if I could help you make more money and give your client’s an amazing experience? This is the ultimate win-win situation for your business and your clients.

    Join me as I walk you through my service oriented, repeatable processes which have grown my business. We’ll discuss what I do during the consult to connect with clients and know that I am photographing what they want to buy.

    We will cover In person sales (IPS) in depth and discuss your questions and how to handle sales objections. Bring your price guides for a hands on exercise where you’ll get to practice the techniques you’re learning. I’ll also discuss pricing your products based on your location, overhead and your paycheck.

    Walk away feeling confident in your ability to give your clients a new level of service.
