Events & Sponsorships Workshop

Campaigns are a reason to do business with you but HOW do you maximize the impact of your campaign, pay for it, AND fill the next season?
Hosting events for your portrait business increases your revenue momentum exponentially. Exhibitions, monthly networking, and the list goes on. You can keep chasing connections or your can fascilliate community and engage them in meaningful ways both personally and for your business.
In this one day workshop you will learn to plan events of your own and connect with other businesses in your area to garner sponsorships so you aren't carrying the cost burden on your own.
