BTI #046: When to Sell and When NOT to Sell

We make two big problems in our sales process. The first is when we never actually ask for the sale and thus the sale never happens. The second is we ask for the sale at the wrong time in the customer’s journey.

In this episode of the podcast host James Patrick discusses how to avoid these two mistakes and the six important steps we need to take the client through and when to make the sale.

This will take a stranger and turn them into a prospect, a prospect and turn them into a customer, and a customer and turn them into an evangelist!

BTI #045: How to Use Fear To Your Advantage

Listen, we have all been there! Afraid to promote our photography business, nervous that people might not like what we are doing, concerned that we will be judged for our creative endeavors.

The result is that we hide. We hide from promoting ourselves, from being proactive, from actually owning the future we want to create for ourselves.

Well, enough is enough! It is time to shift that energy and move from being reactive to proactive in your entrepreneurial journey.

This episode will cover how you, as a photographer, can turn fear into your ally and instead of allowing it to hold you back – to harness it and leverage it to help you grow your career.
