In the second episode in our Sale Sabotage Series we are taking a hard look at your Sale Process.

 “What process?” you might ask. You may not know it, but you HAVE a sales process, it might not be leading you to the results you want for your clients or your business, but you do have one.

The big question is, is your process working for you? If the answer is, “NO,” you’re in the right place! 

In today’s episode you will learn how to weed out unqualified clients, educate the uninitiated ones, and guide your ideal clients along the path to the best outcome for them and for your portrait business. 

It all comes down to taking CONTROL of every, single aspect of your sales process and providing CLARITY at every turn so your clients know EXACTLY “how it works” at your studio and how that benefits them.

Control and clarity are two of the key factors which completely transformed my business when I realized their importance, and I am going to provide you with a number of practical ways in which you can use these tools to transform your portrait business too!
