But, as a photographer in business, your WORDS are your greatest asset.
Words + stories make you more than someone with a camera.
They make potential dreamies see you as human + relatable.
(which let’s their guard down and rises trust)
This makes YOU (and your pictures) memorable
which keeps new dreamies in your corner for the long game.
When your words touch their heart, ultimately, they're influenced into action instead of clicking 'like'.
(pronounced Moss) and I love using the camera to preserve living memories + help photographers connect with potential clients in a fun, memorable way.
In my 11 years of using stories to connect with others, I’ve learned the photographers struggling most have their sights set on bookings, bookings, bookings.
The real win, though, is in relationships. Quality relationships in quantity.
Think of conversations with your closest friends. What engages one another? STORIES.
The problem with stories is that “your story” and “your why” are a bunch of fluffy buzzwords. I checked with thesaurus.com and couldn’t find a better way to convey ‘story’ that sounded exciting enough to get you to read up until this point.
I’m here to help you get the story part down to make you memorable with your potential dreamies.
Inside, you hold the same internal dialogue that your potential clients are having too. It’s the stuff you’re putting into your pictures – the way you see, observe, and decide to hit that shutter.
In this workshop, we’re gonna crack open the container and give attention to what’s inside.
Why? Because, until you do this for yourself, all the “let me tell your story / let’s preserve the memories” marketing lines are gonna be FLUFF to your potential dreamies.
(a sign this is already happening if it feels like your efforts are going unnoticed or ignored)
Yep, we’re goin’ there, friend.

“I learned more actionable marketing goodness from the Brand Story Workshop (BSW) in this past week than I did in my 12 hours of graduate-level marketing courses. That’s #mariemagic ya’ll.”
“Day two was a massive eye opener for me. I thought I knew my why.
Turns out, I didn’t.
Now, I do.
Wow. Mind blown. Thank you Marie.”
“I just wanted to say, Marie, you have a gift! An absolute gift of being able to teach us how to bring out the words with feelings and really dig deep! You have just the right prompts and questions. For many years, I’ve searched for just this type of instruction and inspiration! I am so glad you offered this gold mine of a class and am thankful to have found your Facebook group and website. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
“Marie, you are the effin bomb! I’ve gotten more engagement in the last hour on that story than I have on virtually any other.”

Honest Truth - at the end of the 5 days, you will:
Our lineup, starting Monday, 11/13/17, looks like this:
Day 1: Explore life experiences that light you up.
Day 2: Explore the icky feels.
Day 3: A better way to know who you’re talking to (your dreamies).
Day 4: A simple story recipe (you'll use this template for life!)
Day 5: Rev up your story bank.
Though the process is priceless, the price tag isn’t free. It's only $7.
While there is a live element of this, everything will be recorded for your convenience.
Lessons are short (will come via inbox + FB live in our private pop up group) and there’s a good 30+ minutes you’ll want to dedicate for your daily introspection work. The best things come when you take steps, right?
(I recommend 30 minutes as a taster, but you could certainly set an intention to go deeper on your own after our 5 days is up).
PARTICIPATE. Don't take this as “oh another free challenge that I’ll sign up for and put in a (neva-gonna-see-it) folder for later.” We start Monday, November 13 and wrap up Friday, November 17, 2017.
No refunds will be given. I mean, you’re essentially buying me a chai tea latte + cup o’ soup for what would cost hundreds with a coach, strategist, or mentor.
