Black Friday and Cyber Monday Photography Deals

by Jamie M Swanson

black friday imac giveaway

It’s time for our annual Black Friday through Cyber Monday Photography Deals! Best time of the year to save some money and help buy some tools to make more money in your photography business.

This year, I am giving away an iMac plus a bunch of my favorite business tools to show how thankful I am for all of you this year! Woot! You can enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post (no purchase necessary!)

Here’s the deals we have at The Modern Tog, good Thursday 11/27/14 through Monday, 12/1/14 only.


Marketog is a 6 Week Photography Marketing Course to help you get more ideal photography clients.

Here’s a super-quick overview of what you’ll learn in the course:

    • How to Get More of The Right Kinds of Clients
    • How to Turn Inquiries Into Clients: 6 Game-Changing Strategies
    • How to Turn Your Website Into an Inquiry-Generating Machine
    • How To Get Repeat Clients & More Word-of-Mouth Advertising
    • How to Get Other Business Owners to Send You Their Best Clients
    • A Marketing Toolkit For Effective Marketing Year-Round

You’ll also receive access to:

    • Several bonus videos with interviews from industry leaders sharing their best tips.
    • Private Study Hall group on Facebook

Self-Study Version of Marketog

Because of high demand, I’ve decided to open up enrollment one last time this year and offer a self-study version of the course.

This means that there won’t be any Q&A with Jamie, however you’ll be able to access all past Q&A sessions and ask questions to other students in the Study Hall group on Facebook.

If you want the full course with unlimited Q&A opportunities, you may want to wait until early 2015 when the fully interactive course opens again.

Instant Access to Everything

Because it’s all self-study, you will get all of the content at the time of enrollment and won’t have to wait for it to be released each week.

This will allow you to work at your own pace whenever it is most convenient for you.

Lifetime Access to Course

You get lifetime access to the course, so you will also get any updates made to the content over time and can come back to review the information at your convenience.

To learn more about Marketog and see exactly what each lesson is going to teach, click here now.

Marketog will not be offered as a full course until early 2015. Self-study enrollment is now over. Thanks to everyone who enrolled.

Also, How do I register for the giveaway prizes? Is it a
“purchase is nessasary” kind of thing? or is there a sign up form?


John November 28, 2013 at 1:40 pm

It’s a marketing ploy to get site traffic :P

Jamie M Swanson November 28, 2013 at 9:29 pm

There’s a giveaway widget at the end right where it says “Enter to win an iMac (and other great prizes!)”. If it is not showing up for you, try refreshing the page. There’s been a good deal of traffic today, so there may have been a few hiccoughs. Thanks for understanding.

lisa November 28, 2013 at 11:49 am

I’m not clear on how to enter the ‘Giveaways’?

Jamie M Swanson November 28, 2013 at 9:30 pm

Jamie M Swanson November 28, 2013 at 9:31 pm

You’re welcome.

No, unfortunately the laws in Canada prohibit giveaways that are all completely chance-based, otherwise I’d totally have included you. It’s a legal compliance thing. Unfortunate, but it is what it is.
