WE WILL BUILD THIS INTO THE NUMBER ONE WAY PHOTOGRAPHERS FIND QUALITY CLIENTS
Gold Globe has been designed and created by Elena Ringeisen and her husband, Jonathon. She began her career as a professional photographer in 2009 and since then has built her companies – Modern Baby Photography, Modern Bride Photography, and Modern Market– into a successful business that brings in a six-figure income and rapidly pushing her toward the $1 million mark in overall income for the last three years alone. After teaching the business side to hundreds of photographers around the world she found that the number one struggle photographers had was finding great clients.
Why is this such a big problem for photographers? In order to have a large online footprint for your business that is constantly bringing in new clients to grow your business you need to know exactly how to build your website to rank well in search engines, how SEO (search engine optimization) works, how to blog using the most effective keywords, using social media on a regular basis to connect with thousands of potential clients, how to use a marketing funnel to collect information on potential clients, how to track who’s visiting your website and put together a strong backend marketing strategy such as remarketing. To go a little further it also helps a lot how to run successful ads online, how to use those ads to connect with great clients who are in need of a photographer and ready to start the booking process. Photographers started their business because their passion lies in photography, most of them had no idea that they would also need to become a marketing guru in order to grow their business to something they can depend on.
The good news is that Elena is exactly that. She not only understands how to build a successful photography business from the ground up, but she is a marketing expert who understands how to bridge that connection for photographers. She will be implementing those same business marketing strategies that have been proven to work, for this site. In in a way she will be your personal marketing strategist and help you grow your business.
PERFECTLY DESIGNED FOR ALL PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHERS
Our site has been designed for the portrait photographer; this means anyone who shoots portraits can be part of the site. Newborn photographers, baby photographers, wedding photographers, maternity photographers, etc. Many directories out there are niche oriented and limit who’s on it, which will, in the end, limit who uses the site and ends up booking photographers from it.
It’s beautifully designed. As a professional photographer, Elena designed the site to showcase the best photographers. She understands how branding, colors, fontography, navigation all works to attract a certain type of client. If you’ve been on most directory sites out there, you’ll notice a lot of distracting bold colors and fonts. We want to put our photographers front and center, on a beautiful design that works and gets clients to reach out to their dream photographer.
CONNECTING PHOTOGRAPHERS WITH QUALITY CLIENTS WHO VALUE THEIR WORK
With gold globe, we want to connect photographers with quality clients, not clients who are price shopping for the best available deal. We get why sites like thumbtack and craigslist are used but also know that using those sites rarely ends in finding quality clients who really value photographers for their work. We completely understand having a budget for a photographer but also understand how much goes into perfecting your work, style and running a business as a professional photographer. We want to put the photographer’s value as the top priority and will use this method to not just find any client, but clients who see your worth as a creative. They are worth every penny. By making our site free for clients to search, quality clients can easily see who’s close by and find amazing photographers in their budget.
YOU NEVER HAVE TO PAY TO PLAY, CLIENTS REACH YOU DIRECTLY
Many sites out there require that you bid on the job available (which plays into price shopping). On our site the only cost you’ll ever have is the membership price. If you sign up for the year, it will cost you exactly $12 ($1/month). You never have to pay to get clients to contact you. They have full access to all your information and can quickly send you an email to get your information and talk about their needs.
UNLIMITED LISTING TO HELP YOU PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD
When I started my photography business, I specialized in baby photography. At the time I couldn’t imagine ever shooting anything but those sessions. A few years later I wanted to start shooting weddings. The hardest part about offering two types of sessions is that I struggled with showcasing BOTH categories. Torn between designing a site that would speak directly to an expecting mom, as well as a bride looking for a photographer. That’s why multiple listings are available. You can put your best foot forward for everything you have to offer and design listings with your potential client in mind. If you offer newborn photography, showcase your best newborn work, tell those expecting moms what makes you such a great newborn photographer. If you offer weddings, tell the bride to be how she can best prepare for her upcoming big day and how you can help create portraits she’ll love looking back on.
Booking quality clients is much easier to do when you can put your best foot forward. Speak directly to your client with each type of listing. When a potential client searches for a specific photographer, only your matching listing will show up in the database.
BONUS LOCATIONSN TO HELP YOU GROW YOUR CLIENTBASE
Raise your hand if you have a strong client base in two places. When my family moved from North Carolina to Florida, I had plenty of clients I would go back to photograph. I would have select months out of the year and photograph as many clients as possible during the time I was in town for. We understand how common it is to have ‘two homes’ for your photography business and want to make it possible for you to connect with people in both places. You can create listings in a second location, as long as you note in the listing that this is your ‘bonus location’ as well as give potential clients information on when you’ll be available for sessions in that location.
IT DOESN’T’ GET ANY BETTER THAN $1 PER MONTH
We want to make this site as affordable as possible. We know how much money goes into a running a business. With our low costs, we want to make this the best return on your business and ensure that it’s 100% worth it for you to stay long term.
ONLY FOR PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS
We welcome all professional photographers. We do require that you have an official business to ensure that the photographers we promote have the correct certificate to operate as a professional photographer. It’s important for us to connect to quality clients and will be doing so by using only professional photographers.
GRAB THE TOP SPOT AS WE LAUNCH GOLD GLOBE
To launch the business, we will be organizing photographers on a first come first serve basis. This means if you look at your location, and there’s currently no one listed, you can get the best spot. To help the site grow we want to make it exciting for professional photographers to sign up in their location to get listed first. Once we reach a certain amount of photographers on the site, they will be organized based on reviews, and quality.
