Gold Globe offers a simple way to connect with potential clients in your area, allowing you to take a step back from marketing your business so you can focus on your service and products. Beautiful, simple and easy to use, Gold Globe offers a way to generate revenue without the headaches.
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. She started her business the old-fashioned way: with lots of hard work and the determination to follow her own path. She built her entire business from the ground up, by herself. Today she teaches entrepreneurs in the creative fields everything she learned about steering an artistic passion into a successful business and leveraging the power of social media to connect with clients.
Her goal was to create Gold Globe to make it easier than ever for professional photographers to connect with quality clients. Quite simply, Elena understands the business of being creative. She understands how to market photography businesses and will be doing exactly that for photographers who join the site.
CREATE AN ACCOUNT
Creating an account with Gold Globe is easy, simply click Add Your Listing in the menu bar and pick the package that fits you. You will receive an email to confirm your account, once you confirm your account it will be activated and you will be on your way to getting new clients.
SUBMIT YOUR FIRST LISTING
When you submit your first listing, Gold Globe automatically creates an account for you. Just make sure to check your email so you can log in. After creating your initial listing, you have the option to create as many more as you like. We highly recommend that you create a unique listing for each of your sessions this way when someone is searching for a particular photographer your listing will come up for it. If you’re a newborn photographer, and also shoot weddings, you can easily create a listing to speak directly to an expecting mom, as well as one that will connect with a bride to be. By creating multiple listings, you can put your best foot forward.
CREATE MULTIPLE LISTINGS
When you make a listing, it should be labeled as your legal business name. And then choose what category you want to connect it to. And then customize that specific listing to your session. This could mean you might have five unique listings all with the same name, but listed under different categories. (Don’t worry, when a potential client searches for a ‘newborn photographer’ only your newborn photography listing will show up!
You should make a unique listing for EVERY type of session. Clients will be searching for the types of sessions, and only those listings that fall into the right category will come up making it easy for you to create the perfect listing for what you offer, and make it easy for your potential clients to find the perfect photographer.
If you’re a newborn photographer who also offers family session you should make one listing for your newborn photography. And one for the family session. You can customize these listings with the right images and put your best foot forward.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR LISTINGS
The point of making multiple listings available is to make it easier for you to speak directly to your potential client. Make sure to add a matching cover photo, if it’s for your newborn listing, add a newborn portrait. If it’s your wedding listing, add something wedding related to grab their attention.
You’ll also have a place to tell them a little more about who you are and your business. The nice thing with multiple listings is that you can speak directly to potential clients about a specific services. If it’s your newborn listing tell them why you love working with newborns and when the best time to book, and what makes working with you so wonderful.
If you’re a wedding photographer, tell your potential brides how excited you are and how much it means to be considered as their wedding photographer. Tell them why you’re passionate about documenting weddings!
DON’T FORGET TO ADD YOUR HEADSHOT
Don’t forget to put up your profile photo. They show up with all the listings and is a wonderful way for them to get to know you a little better. It’s always nice seeing who’s behind their business!
