The Profitable Portfolio Builder method will work for anyone wanting to get a better portfolio or break into a new kind of photography, regardless of how much experience they have or if they have a studio or not.
However, there are 2 things you MUST have, or it won’t work for you.
1. You have to take beautiful images that people are willing to pay for.
Every photographer fears that their images aren’t good enough, so you’re not alone if you’re feeling unsure. Don’t let this fear hold you back.
However, if you try this method and it just isn’t getting you sales, you may want to ask for critique from a photographer you trust to be honest with you if you need more practice.
2. You’ve got to be willing to try it exactly as written.
This method was developed through lots of trial and error by Molly Marie, and by omitting even one part of what she shares with you in this book means you may be setting yourself up for failure.
- We’re not going to ask you to turn into a slimy, pushy salesman.
- We’re not going to tell you to beg people to photograph them or ask you to change your pricing or product offerings.
- We’re not going to ask you to bribe people with wine, chocolates, or massages (even if that would work on us!)
But we will tell you EXACTLY how to book portfolio building sessions and sell products afterwards and you’ve got to be willing to try our method.
The Profitable Portfolio Builder is based on psychology and past experience, and if you leave anything out or modify a vital part of it, it may not work.
Yes. As long as you have a price list and social media accounts set up, you have everything you need to use the Profitable Portfolio Builder right away.
The Profitable Portfolio Builder method is good for most types of photography where the person booking the sessions is also the person who makes the buying decisions.
For example, it may not work as well for senior portraits because high school seniors may want to be in a portfolio building session, but since most parents would pay for the photos, you’re less likely to have success with our method.
This method is designed to work with the following sessions:
- Engaged Couples
- Glamour & Boudoir
This method is NOT designed for senior portraits, wedding photography, event photography, stock photography, commercial photography, landscape photography, food photographers or fine art photography.
If you follow the method exactly and do not book any portfolio building sessions from this method within 15 days of purchasing the Profitable Portfolio Builder, we will gladly refund your money.
We strongly believe that this method WILL work for you if you follow it exactly. So get your copy today, put it into practice, and start seeing results.
