+How does this seminar work?
This seminar is self-paced. You receive all lessons, which include 7 videos and one article, immediately with purchase, and you can view the lessons in the order that works best for you. The information is integrational, so the more lessons you view the stronger your understanding and application will be for all other lessons; and yet the lessons also function independently, so you can learn in order of interest or urgency.
As the seminar evolves and updates, you will continue to have access. So long as the information is being provided, your initial purchase will be considered your admission!
+Why is this class so cheap compared to other online business courses?
Gary Vaynerchuk said it best: “There are people that are ripping people off at the level of hundreds of millions of dollars, because they’re selling this dream [of working from the beach] and are making people spend a thousand, two thousand [dollars]. It’s breaking my heart.”
I feel the same way.
It’s my philosophy that the price of a seminar or program like this one should be proportional to the money that you as a student can make right away from the information. In the case of this 8-part seminar, if you’re charging competitive prices as a photographer, what you invest for these 8 lessons will come back to you with the first client you book as a result of what you learn—the first two clients at most!
I’m not promising a get-rich-quick formula that for most people will ultimately fail. I’m sharing the actual structure of the sustainable business model I created for myself as a photographer, because I believe it will truly help other photographers, so long as they are willing to do the work.
The quality of the content is not less than you’d receive with most online photography courses; it’s concentrated and the fluff has been trimmed out so that what you get is the most actionable, useful information possible for starting a social media photography business like the one we use at Alexis The Greek. If you’ve gotten value out of similar classes at twice the price, you’ll be pleased with the value provided for this seminar at a much lower cost.
+How much time will I need to dedicate to this class to get the most out of it?
My own mentor Hilary Rushford astutely pointed out that when it comes to education, “you cannot implement in eight weeks what you learn in eight weeks.” That principle applies to this seminar.
Although the lessons are made available to you immediately and the seminar is self-paced—meaning you could watch all the lessons in a weekend if you chose to—ultimately what’s going to make a difference is the action you take and/or the changes you make as a result of the information provided in the seminar.
It’s safe to say that you’ll need a minimum of twice the time you spend learning the information to implement it. There are over 5 hours of content in the seminar, so if you spend 5 hours on the brainstorming sheets and supplemental resources, and another 5 hours implementing what you learn, you’re looking at 15-20 hours to set up or restructure your business.
+How do I know this class is right for me?
Do any of the following descriptions sound like you?
- You want to switch from high-risk photo jobs (such as weddings) to something more low-key and creative
- Right now you only make money during peak photography seasons—such as spring/summer engagement season and senior portrait season—and you’d like a more consistent income
- You’ve been trying to break into brand photography but feel that no one you’d want to work with is willing to pay what you’re worth
- Most of your work currently comes from friends, family, and friends of friends or friends of family, and you want to branch out
- You often end up doing work for free or at a discount
- You’re highly interested in social media, supporting small business, or both
If one or more sounds like you, this seminar will be great for getting you started or taking you to the next level! Note: This is not a how-to-use-your-DSLR-camera course, or a course that contains specific photo styling lessons. This class is also best for self-starters and photographers who are highly motivated to bring their businesses full-time.
+Do you offer a guarantee?
We have worked hard to present this seminar accurately and fairly prior to sale, so that all potential students can know what to expect inside the seminar and know whether the information is right for their goals.
The information provided in the lessons is a mix of solid, age-old business education and photographer-specific information that we've never seen on the market, and we believe the value provided in any one of the classes will either result in increased bookings or increased client satisfaction worth the cost of the full seminar.
If you watch all the videos within 7 days of purchase and complete all the brainstorming sheets and still feel you did not receive the value promised, you can submit all of your completed brainstorming sheets to hello[at]alexisthegreek.com for a refund. This submission must also be made within 7 days of purchase to be considered valid for the refund. Incomplete brainstorming sheets will not be considered for refund.
