Program Description:

Which half of your brain makes decisions when building your website? The artist or the photography business owner? Hopefully a healthy mix of both. Too often, however, photographers don’t keep their clients’ needs in mind when designing a website – an important business tool. If you’re interested in marketing your photography business better online, and you’re using your website to generate image sales or new assignment work, this session is for you.

Get schooled on what commercial and editorial image buyers really want in a photographer’s website. Grover Sanschagrin, PhotoShelter co-founder and photographer website guru, will discuss the designs and features that will help grow your business online. PhotoShelter recently surveyed 550 + global image buyers at magazines, ad agencies, newspapers, design firms, corporate design groups and more – and learned all about the designs and features that your clients feel most passionate about. He’ll deliver clear guidance on what to do – and what NOT to do – if you want to sell more photography and get more assignment work via your website. In addition, Grover will cover the essential marketing tactics you should be using today to get your work found online, like Search Engine Optimization basics and social networking.

Key website areas that will be discussed include:

Don't design or buy a new website without this information!

Plus, attendees are invited to submit their websites for an opportunity for brief live critique.

Special offer for attendees:
All event attendees will receive a coupon for $30 off an Annual PhotoShelter Standard Account.

Who is this for?
Professional photographers and anyone aspiring to get there.

This is a free event but space is extremely limited. RSVP by email to Spaces will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Please include your name, date of the event, and website URL if you would like to be critiqued during the session.
