IT'S TIME TO MAKE BRANDING EASY

"SHE PROMISES BURNT OUT TO BOOKED OUT BUT WOW, SHE ACTUALLY MEANS IT."

- Sam

SIT BACK AND IMAGINE THIS

You just popped on your headphones in your favourite cafe and cranked up your favourite playlist to get yourself in the mood. One album and cosy hot drink later, you're almost done crafting your brand.

 

You know the brand works perfectly for your ideal client's buying style. You've catered to their questions, and matcha not only spiced up your drink but also spiced up your brand. It's professional, cohesive, and visually stunning.

Fast forward to the next day when you hit share on a new service offer that looks so good and reads so well, you seriously consider buying it yourself, because how could you not?! Duh! 🤑

 

Before you head out to get lunch, the first buzzzz and cha-ching sounds make you perk up? Was that a new booking notification? You bet it was. Get used to it, babe, because this is about to be your new reality. Time to get your Five Guys and extra fries to celebrate all the abundance coming your way soon.

All of this and more is possible with The Photo Lab. Time to use a proven brand roadmap, CASH IN on the incredible offer(s) you created and skyrocket your bookings and income - on autopilot! 💸

HOW MANY ENQUIRIES DO YOU MISS OUT ON DAILY BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE A STRONG STRATEGY?

If you've made it through everything I've written so far, you know your business needs an update. Clients are looking for someone like you right now, and they're searching the internet, credit card in hand (or at least stored in their phones).

The question is: are you putting yourself and your offers out there in a way that makes it easy for people to say "heck yes" to booking you? Are you answering their questions and giving them the confidence to buy from you? Or are you accidentally deterring even the most confident buyer with a clunky strategy that creates more questions than it answers?

Inside The Photo Lab, I will show you how to create a brand strategy that turns all the maybe's into "YES! Here's my money". Whether you're running ads or selling organically, your new clarity will help you sign more clients and make more money without you working any harder or getting on another unpaid sales call (unless you want to).

Are you ready to get so many booking notifications that people will be asking you why your phone doesn't stop vibrating - ever?
