Why pricing is so important:

  • It is the fastest way to increase your revenue and profits
  • You can make incredible gains
  • Literally increase your profitability

Steps for getting your pricing correct:

  • Find photographers closely match to yourself (similar level)
  • Collect their starting price (lowest cost package)
  • Find out what the average is or what the median is
  • Raise your price above 5% per year
  • Double the inflation every year (inflation around 2-3%)
  • Photographers need packages
  • Clients will gravitate towards the middle package

Why packages really work:

  • It gives the feeling that you’re getting some type of deal
  • The more you buy the better deal you get
  • People would mostly go on the middle package
  • Photographers need a really high end portrait package
  • Have at least 3 packages

Album Credits:

  • Do not include album in your packages
  • Only include album credits

Puppy dog close:

  • Take home the puppy at home then return if you don’t like the puppy
  • Mostly people will buy the puppy once they bring it home
  • Similar with photography album
  • Most photographers don’t like to sell

Reason why pricing is low:

  • Having a very high booking rate
  • You wanted to book 90% of the people you meet
  • You should only book 30% of the people you meet
  • Used your marketing to have more meetings
  • Lower booking rate will enable you have higher price
  • Perfect price lets you book your desired number of weddings

How to get confidence in selling:

  • You’ll lose if you’re justifying the pricing
  • If you start explaining you will become the antelope and the client became the lion
  • Just go over the prices casually with no hesitation
  • Do not bet too many challenging on your pricing
    • Save yourself some time in aggravation
    • Client know what you’re pricing is
  • Don’t justify or argue with a potential client about your pricing
  • Don’t put all your package details and prices in your website

Giving discounts:

  • Offer minor concession
  • Offer minor price reduction
  • Add extra value (upgrade a print)
  • More print credit

Giving something extra:

  • Something the client is not expecting
  • Give an extra print
  • Makes the client more happy
  • Getting goodwill
