Build a thriving photography business and book more dream clients with a proven organic marketing framework.

ATTENTION FAMILY AND PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHERS!

You're a talented photographer and you want to make money doing something you love.

What if you had a fully booked calendar, consistent $5K months, and the luxury of a flexible work week so that you can do your most important job - being a mom.

Isn't that the dream?

But as a busy mom, you don't have the time (or energy) to figure it all out.

But making your photography business work is important to you, so you...

GOOGLE EVERYTHING

you can on how to grow a photography business only to realize there are always catches with free advice. (not to mention the overwhelm that comes with advice from too many people.)

POST IN FACEBOOK GROUPS

and you are stuck filtering through all the random comments. Talk about spiraling with information and trying to figure out who to listen to.

EMBRACE TRIAL AND ERROR

as a mindset but this feels clumsy and lonely. Your plate is full of ALL the things so fumbling your way through building a profitable business isn't on your priority list.

So what's the magical "thing" that will solve all your problems?

Marketing

OF COURSE! I WAS HOPING YOU SAID THAT.

Marketing is the key to unlocking a profitable and sustainable photography business.

...AND I know you already knew that
(cause you're here).

A solid marketing strategy has the potential to set your business up for long-term success. You will book more dream clients, charge a higher price, get more consistent bookings, and not have to stress so hard over what to try next to get more bookings.

So, what does a profitable and sustainable photography business look like?

A fully booked calendar. Consistent $5K months. A flexible work week. A life you LOVE.

so naturally, the next question is...

How do you do "Marketing"?

You have likely tried a lot of things to market your business. Maybe bought some marketing courses, followed a few influential photographers on Instagram, or perhaps purchased some social media caption ideas. But the result is always the same...

You try something new, get excited for leads to roll in, and then crickets.

I know the frustration that comes with spending hours on social media content...only for the algorithm to shut you down. I know the feeling of failure when you launch something new and no one signs up. Or worst of all, maybe you are starting to feel "gross" or too salesy putting yourself out there and getting no leads.

If you're struggling in the marketing department and frustrated like all heck trying to figure it all out, it's not a "YOU PROBLEM".

The problem is in your approach.

Marketing isn't just ONE thing.

Marketing isn't posting consistently on social media at the right time. It's not writing the perfect caption or getting the most likes. It's not about creating the best referral program or nailing your SEO.

A SUCCESSFUL marketing strategy is a complete system.

(and if you're wondering how to do this...)

Introducing The Marketing Ecosystem Framework

HINT: This is the foundation of Built to Book: An Organic Marketing Program for Photographers.

A Marketing Ecosystem is a set of elements in your business that cohesively work together "organically" (without paid advertising) to create a thriving business.

HOW IT WORKS:

WHY IT WORKS:

When you have a complete system of marketing elements in place, it's much easier to convert leads to bookings. Your know, like and trust factor is higher. The ecosystem is cyclical in nurturing your clients through the system over and over again.

When you can invest your time and energy into nurturing your leads, it's easier to book more sessions, increase your prices, and grow your business.

Let's imagine you figured it all out. You would be...

This isn't just a dream, but possible with the right strategy in place.

IN CASE WE HAVEN'T OFFICIALLY MET...

I'm Danielle Blewitt.

Wife, mom to two kiddos, marketing expert, and family photographer.

It wasn’t that long ago that I was starting my photography business and fumbling my way through it all. As a hopeless marketer at heart, I see marketing in everything we do as business owners. 

I leaned into my 15 years of experience in the marketing world when I launched my business and went all in. I was able to leave my full-time job and scale my family photography business to over 6-figures in less than 3 years without doing weddings, IPS or paid advertising using my Marketing Ecosystem Framework.

Fast forward to today, and I’m excited to share what I know with photographers who are ready to get serious about their business and want to find the same success. 

If you're ready to go from frustrated and burnt out to a confident, in-demand photographer -- I'm excited to share...

Built to Book is a comprehensive program that teaches family and portrait photographers how to book more dream clients and grow a profitable photography business through my signature Marketing Ecosystem Framework without paid advertising.

When you implement your own Marketing Ecosystem Framework you will...

KIND WORDS FROM PAST STUDENTS

...my monthly profits have doubled, and some months tripled!

Danielle’s course was an absolute turning point in my business. She helped me dig deep into every aspect of my business, and restructure things in a way that made sense. Since Danielle’s course my business has completely taken off. I am seeing growth each month, and my monthly profits have doubled, and some months tripled, since taking her course. Her continued education on resources, and business advice has been a key to the success of my photography.

Lauren Lee Photography

Danielle is really smart about marketing.

Danielle is really smart about marketing. Her recommendation to niche down is probably the best business advice than anyone could get in the photography business. Danielle points out that as a road to devaluing your brand. While I continue to explore my niche, that vision has never left me.
Since taking Danielle's courses, I tripled my revenue. I set a revenue goal that I thought was out of reach, and I surpassed it by 20%!!!

Is Built to Book right for you?

This Is perfect for you if….

This Is NOT RIGHT for you if….

If you made it this far, you probably have some questions for me.

If you are a student in the Bootcamp course or you have considered joining it — the Built to Book program is a much more advanced version of Bootcamp. This is for photographers that have an established business and are looking to invest in growing their business. The Photography Business Bootcamp was designed to help photographers start their business providing the basic foundational things you need for a successful business. The Built to Book program is a comprehensive library of foundational building blocks and advanced marketing strategies. This program is “live” in the sense that it will continue to grow as your business grows. 

The course is set up to be completed over a 12-week time frame. Every week, there is a new set of trainings to watch and action items to do. It is paced for the busy photographer with no-fluff video lessons and action items to keep you accountable each week. 

If you dive in and realize you need to take things slower, the content of the course is yours and you are welcome to chip away at it all at a more comfortable pace for you. The course comes with 6 months of coaching calls which you are welcome to join at your convenience. 

There is no where else on the internet that will break it all down in a step-by-step format for a better price. Plus you get bonuses, bi-weekly coaching calls, group support and 1:1 voxer access. I hold your hand through this process. 

 

By implementing my signature Marketing Ecosystem framework, you are creating a foundation for your business that sets you up for long-term sustainability for your business. This isn’t a quick fix or a fad, it’s an investment into the future of your photography business. If you do the work and remain consistent, this will pay for itself exponentially.

You can spend hours on google trying to sort through free advice but really the most comprehensive and personalized advice isn’t free. You can certainly DIY your business or you could save yourself the time, headaches and trial and error part of it and give yourself the best chance at finding success quicker.

While you do need to know how to use your camera, you don’t have to be the absolute best. I only say this because photography is an art that continues to develop with time and experience. I would be remiss if I said it wasn’t important at all but I believe you can grow your photography business at the same time you are honing your skills as a photographer. Of course, I strongly encourage you to continue learning and perfecting your skills in this process, but it’s not mandatory for creating a successful business. Most portrait clients don’t know what a good photograph is but they know what it feels like to work with a good business..

If you are just getting started and don’t have the legal aspects of your business set up just yet but you are committed to setting up your business for success from the start, this program is perfect for you. There is a Business Basics Bootcamp that will walk you through all the logistics of the legal stuff. 

No, this is not a program that teaches you how to use your camera. It is a program focused on teaching you how to build and create a successful photography business. If you are just getting started, check out Shultz Photo School Photo Fix and Lightroom Fix to learn the basics of photography. 

You don't have to feel alone in your business journey anymore!

Running a business as a solopreneur can often feel lonely. Not only do you wear all the hats to make the decisions but you rarely have anyone else to bounce ideas off of. This program not only gives you a step-by-step roadmap to follow but also access to personalized coaching and a supportive community of peers who are in the same place you are. Leave your insecurities at the door and join us for what will be a game changer for your business.
