50+ Black Friday and Cyber Monday Photography Deals

by Jamie M Swanson

Black Friday Deals for Photographers

I am RIDICULOUSLY excited about this year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals for Photographers and iPad mini giveaway!!!! WOOT WOOT!

For those of you outside the US, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving when places offer their best deals of the year. Cyber Monday is the Monday after, and usually has some fabulous deals as well.

Biggest List of Black Friday Deals for Photographers!

Because I know your time is precious and we all love a good deal, I’ve spent literally HOURS scouring the web, emailing my most favorite vendors, and putting together this list of sales that is going on that you might want to get in on now in addition to sharing significant discounts on my own products. These are usually the lowest prices of the entire year on products, so it’s a great time to buy.

6-Week Photography Marketing Bootcamp: VERY Limited Pre-Release!

I’m also doing a very limited pre-release of a brand new e-book I just wrote called the “6-Week Photography Marketing Bootcamp” that will ONLY be on the market through Cyber Monday and then will be taken off until Spring of 2013 when it will be available as a bonus with my full marketing e-book that I’ll be releasing. More details on that below.

Win a free iPad mini!

Finally, I’m giving away a free iPad mini! No purchase is necessary – all you have to do is enter below. Why would I do this? Because I’m ridiculously thankful for you, and it’s just one way I can give back.

EXCLUSIVE Release: 6-Week Photography Marketing Bootcamp!

6 Week Photography Marketing Bootcamp

I’m doing an exclusive, limited time pre-release of my “6-Week Photography Marketing Bootcamp” e-book that will only be on the market through Cyber Monday before it is taken off again until Spring.

This e-book is going to give you 6 weeks worth of detailed marketing tasks to do to get more clients as fast as possible. It’s the same things I personally do in order to catch up on my marketing efforts after neglecting them during the busy season, and it’s helped us go from a brand new business to completely replacing our household income in only 3 years.

It’s incredibly practical and filled with specific tasks and directions that will get you moving in the right direction right away. You can get an exclusive copy of this 83-page e-book right now for only $29 by clicking here. Once Tuesday comes along, the sale will be over and the product will be unavailable for several months, so get it now!

This e-book was created as a companion to the more robust photography e-book that I’m writing, but that book isn’t going to be finished until spring, and will only be available in the future when you purchase that new e-book once it launches.

What the Bootcamp covers:

How to get as many new clients as quickly as possible for as little money as possible.

What the Bootcamp is not:

We won’t talk about branding or direction or more advanced strategies. This is a down and dirty, get’er done list of things you should be able to do right now without a lot of preparation. The more advanced stuff that takes additional effort will be coming in the marketing ebook this coming spring.

Get it now before it’s gone. Only available for 5 days. Just $29.

The photography questionnaires come with three different versions:

Photographer’s Pricing Guide Workbook: $50 Off!

Photography Pricing Guide Sale

In this Photography Pricing Guide Workbook, YOU determine how much you want to make, add in your expenses and how much you expect to do during the year and it quickly tells you what you need to charge to make the profit you desire.

No confusing multipliers, and lots of flexibility to adjust your desired profit so that you can charge less when you’re just starting out, but know how much you need to aim for in order to hit your future profit goals.

Shoot more than just one type of session? It also helps you to price all the different types of services you offer, such as both portraits and weddings together.

A free 7-Part Pricing series will walk you through each step of the guide, as if your own personal pricing consultant was sitting there right next to you. It couldn’t be easier. Requires Microsoft Excel. Learn more here.
