Product Spotlight: Essential Pre-Session Consult Kit

What's worse than spending valuable time shooting only to find your images won't work for what your client has envisioned? How would you like to go into a shoot knowing exactly what your client expects instead of merely shooting images that don't get purchased? Learn to make the most of your time and pre-sell without the pressure!

Based on extensive experience, Design Aglow's experts, lead by Laura Novak, will help you to:

• Increase revenue by guaranteeing profitable pre-sales

• Improve processes to make your business more efficient, with a focus on selling the art you are commissioned to create

• Create an effective pre-sales system and quality experience for your clients

With field-proven methodology, our extensive 25-page guide also thoroughly directs you through the entire process of pre-sales sessions, including: how to interact naturally with clients of various types and needs; different meeting locations; exceeding sales and session expectations; follow-up email with an FAQ; tips for optimal web presence; and handling investment questions. We even provide a no-fail script/worksheet for your meeting (as well as how to use it), the takeaway in the form of a client commitment guide, and a handy bookmark for taking room measurements.

Expert contributors include: perfect sales with Julia Woods, pre-session pro Laura Novak's business acumen, Joy Bianchi's tips for authentic presence, Kimberly Wylie's practical presentation techniques, and Sandi Bradshaw's decor details.

The outcome of a shoot is to create fine art for your clients' home, and we're here to explain how to educate them on why that is such a valuable investment. Whether you're meeting over coffee, over the phone, at a client's home or in your studio, with this generously sized 25-page pre-session guide and included bonus materials, you'll be at your most effective yet, saving workflow, efforts and energy, and exceeding the expectations of your clients to see it in the shop!
