Do you ever feel like there is a secret club that has all the answers on how to up-level your photography business that you aren’t in?
You’re invited to that club. Starting now.
Welcome to the Photographer’s Inner Circle. We call it PIC for short.
This is a members only group for professional photographers who are looking to focus on their bottom line. And let me be clear: by bottom line I mean how much money you are making in your business. Because if you’re not making money, it’s a hobby, not a business.
That is the biggest measure of your success.
When you’re the boss, there’s not always someone who is holding you accountable, and this means one thing; you’re not accurately able to measure success.
PIC holds you accountable.
Every week, we’ll look at what you’ve accomplished for the week, and what can be improved.
First, we should go back to the beginning.
What inspired the Photographer’s Inner Circle?
In the last ten years, I’ve coached hundreds of photographers, and despite all the resources available to them on the internet, they felt alone.
They had a job they loved, that wasn’t paying the bills. There’s nothing more disheartening and depressing than that when you’re a passionate creative. And over the years as the market becomes more and more saturated, they were contemplating leaving a job the loved, for a job that pays the bills.
The only thing that is standing between you and the job you love is understanding that it’s not enough to have hopes. You need goals, plans, and accountability.
One of my Superpowers is the ability to help people reframe their problems so that the solution is simple- and brings in MONEY.
One nugget of advice helped them breakthrough barriers they could not see and set them on a path to financial success. In some cases, that nugget brought them in thousands of dollars of income just by changing their thinking and how they approached their business strategy.
There is Absolute Truth to that Which is Measured Grows and Flourishes
It’s not enough for someone to challenge you on how to change your thinking or how to go after that ideal client. The other piece of the puzzle comes in when someone challenges you to be held accountable to the results of the plan you put into action.
- How did it go?
- Did you see results?
- Do you feel positive about the results?
- Did you make MONEY?
- How can I help you improve?
Money. Cash. It’s time to break the taboo about talking about money because Instagram followers don’t pay your mortgage.
I’ve worked with clients that went from making $12,000 a year to making $12,000 a MONTH within the first 60 days of working together. Other clients tripled their revenue in 12 weeks. Accountability is the core of this transformation in their business.
As a member of PIC, every Friday I’ll send you an accountability email. Three simple questions. You send an email back with your answers. Every email will be read. Some I’ll respond to personally, some I will talk about in our group Q&A Call.
Twice a month, I’ll open the phone lines, and we’ll have a group Q&A call. Bring your business question, and you’ll get an actionable answer on what to do. Even if you don’t have a question, you’ll learn something from these calls that will help your business.
I’ve had clients take these tiny nuggets and translate them to 10K in sales.
So, since I’m all about talking about the bottom line, what do you get when you join PIC?
First of all, this is not a program or a mastermind course. Why? Because not everyone needs (or can afford) high-level coaching and hand holding. We spend too much time making our businesses complicated instead of selling. The goal here is to focus on doing the WORK. The work that brings in the money.
If you don’t know where to start, but you know you need help, this is the perfect place to start. It’s a low-cost single-focus program that couldn’t be simpler to use.
As a Member of the Photographer’s Inner Circle you’ll receive:
- Live Q&A Coaching Calls twice a month – you bring your questions, request a hot seat, and I’ll answer them. (Private group coaching starts at $2500, so this is priceless!)
- Weekly Accountability Check-ins – you are not alone in your business. You have a group of other focused, dedicated photographers to talk serious business concerns with.
- Regular updates on social media changes so that you can simplify, optimize, and make the most of your time.
- A Facebook Community designed to allow for easy access to all the information – and all of the PIC members. We are stronger as a team.
- BONUS: Blogging Brilliantly Content Planning course (value $297)
- Plus, more surprise bonuses in the works for 2019!
My mission is to help you create more connections, start more conversations, and make more conversions to paying clients.
I love coaching programs.
I’m in several of them myself.
I also run several.
This is not a program. There is not a structured curriculum for you to work through.
This is designed to get you quick answers when you need them most, to hold you accountable in your business, and to provide you with the information you need to make the most out of your time investment in social media.
IT IS MEANT TO BE SIMPLE.
We spend too much time making our businesses too complicated instead of selling. The goal here is to focus on doing the WORK.
Our community is there to support you, but not to distract you. I believe that IMPLEMENTATION is far more important than information.
The Photographer’s Inner Circle is designed so that it complements whatever personal and business development you’re doing today. If you’re not doing anything, this is a great place to start. It’s a low-touch, (very, very) low cost single-focus program that couldn’t be more simple to use.
I’m Christine Tremoulet.
For years, I was a digital strategist, working with Fortune 500 companies. Then, in 2007, I decided it was time to live the dream and become a professional photographer.
I booked over 25 weddings my first year in business. I brought in over $100,000 that year. All thanks to the power of the Internet and sharing my story online. Savvy social media connections had me completely booked the next eight years that I was in business.
By the time I set down my camera to focus on helping other photographers grow their businesses, I had made over seven figures in my own photography business.
I don’t say this to brag, but to show you – I know how to make money online.
I’ve led workshops and spoken on podcasts and stages small and large, sold out workshops, and given keynote platforms at WPPI to rooms so packed that people had to be turned away at the door.
I’ve built companies and sold them. I’ve booked hundreds of weddings and hundreds of portrait clients. I’ve had regular 5-figure months, month after month.
I’ve advised countless photographers to do one thing: sell more. It doesn’t matter what photography niche you are in; this works for every photographer.
What You Don’t Get in Photographer’s Inner Circle
You don’t get a one-size fit any one program to go through.
No promise of a quick button to push to make your business suddenly magical.
You won’t be inundated with more tasks to add to your to-do list.
You’ll never be behind on a class, and wondering when you’ll find time to catch up.
This takes very little time out of each week and keeps you laser-focused on your business and sales goals.
You only have to make two commitments when you join today.
You get an email from me each Friday, and you spend 10 minutes answering it.
You show up on the Q&A calls and ask for help when you need it.
Too Long, Didn’t Read?
These check-ins are micro steps that will help you with accountability. If you need more, then full coaching options are always available to you. Think of this as the “Miller Lite” of my full-bodied coaching!
The Specifics – How the Q&A Call Works
Twice a month I will host Q&A calls. You will receive an email with the call-in details for the call. Have a question? Hop on that day and ask it. There will also be a thread in the group to post your question in case you can’t make the call live.
These calls are business focused. We don’t talk about gear.
Recordings are immediately available for you to access & listen to. (Tip: Someone else’s question might be the exact answer you’re looking for that you didn’t know you needed.)
How the Accountability Email Process Works
You’ll receive one email from me every Friday for the length of your membership.
The emails will always have [PIC] in the subject line, so you know it is from me, and you can prioritize it.
The email will ask you three questions, and you shouldn’t spend more than 10 minutes on it.
I read every single response that I receive. Every. ONE.
These two things are the MAGIC KEYS to the Photographer’s Inner Circle.
How Do I Know This Works?
This works for several reasons:
- It’s been proven that when you pay, you play
- That email you get every week? It’s the accountability that you need
- This email isn’t a huge time commitment, but it is a commitment. And that commitment to a mind-reset can turn into big things for your bottom line
- It gets you in the habit of re-setting your week. This repetition brings good things!
I take your questions and your confidentiality seriously. When you hit reply on that email, I’m the only person that it goes to, and it goes to my dedicated email server.
That’s our contract for PIC. It’s useful. It’s cathartic. It’s actionable.
You become more productive and you sell more.
At this point, you know if it is for you.
How much does it cost?
The Photographer’s Inner Circle is worth one hundred thousand dollars a year.
(I’m not going to charge you that much, that would be ridiculous.)
I have actually made the offer to pay someone $50 a week to hold me accountable and check in on me. This was the role of my assistant as she was training on other things. It was some of the best money I’ve ever spent. Accountability is worth more than that to me, and probably to you, as well.
$50 x 52 weeks = $2,600 a year.
You can join for much less than that though. It is only $27 a MONTH. (Or, if you like to save money? Pay for the year in full for only $247, and you get 2+ months free!)
(Yes, really. I want more than anything to see your business succeed.)
Why so low? I wanted to make sure you bought this TODAY. I wanted to give you a reason to take action immediately.
That price is NOT a typo. I wanted to make this as affordable as possible for photographers willing to do the work.
Why so low?
If you’re the kind of person who does their homework and likes to try before you buy, this is the perfect solution. You can then move forward in to the Business Accelerator or One-on-One Coaching. (Spaces in both of those are very limited, and require an approval process.)
For others, this is all they need. Information is freely available everywhere. Accountability is always worth paying for.
The premise is simple. On Monday and Tuesday, I read your emails and reply to the ones that need an answer. I then do our bi-monthly calls and talk with you in our Facebook group. It’s a smaller, scaled down version of the high-level coaching I’ve been doing for years and that clients have paid me thousands of dollars for.
It is well worth it.
The proposition is straightforward.
- Twice a month Q&A calls.
- 52 emails a year, every Friday.
- Social media updates with actionable, photographer-specific tips.
- The Blogging Brilliantly Content Planning Course Bonus.
- The Bonus Facebook Community
- Because of the lower risk-factor, there are no refunds.
Get started today.
Once you join, I’ll send you one email within 10-15 minutes with links and information, and your first check-in email on that following Friday.
FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions that I made up when we launched in January 2019.)
That price is so low, it is going to go up later, right?
As long as you are a member in good standing, that’s the price you pay. We’re good. You’re in. If you choose to leave? Yes, the price might be higher when you return. It will go up as we grow.
Do you read my emails?
Yes, and better than that, I reply to your questions either directly, in a post for the whole group (without mentioning your name), or on the next Q&A call.
Are there some emails you don’t respond to?
Yes. Due to the number of emails I get, if someone indicates to me that they are doing well and don’t require any direction that week, I may not reply. I don’t want to add clutter to your Inbox.
Can I have an in-depth conversation with you and get live any-time coaching?
Only if you’re a current coaching client. Packages for private coaching start at $2,000 for the Business Accelerator small group program and start at $5,000 for one-on-one coaching, and both are dependent on an application process. Contact me if you’d like to know more about becoming a private client or a member of The Business Accelerator.
I’m already in someone else’s course, or I have a coach. Can I still join?
Absolutely! If you fee that you would like even more support, this is a great resource for you for accountability. Also, you’ll lock in a Lifetime membership at the current rate. It will go up in the future, so now you’re covered.
What happens when I join today?
Every Friday, like clockwork you’ll hear from me. Emails will always be labeled with [PIC], so they are easy to find.
What if I want to cancel?
You can cancel the emails at any time by clicking “unsubscribe” in the footer of the emails, and you won’t get another one.
While you can cancel anytime, why would you? You’re locked in for life at this insanely low price. If you need to take some time off, no one is going to come after you. Remember: no refunds.
If I don’t check in for several weeks, will you reach out to me?
No, that is your choice. I send you the email, and your part of our contract is to reply to it. I do not keep a list of who is naughty or nice. I mean, who checks in and who doesn’t. I read the emails I have.
Does this work?
It works if you do the work and set aside ten minutes every week to reply to an email.
Do you have any testimonials?
The Photographer’s Inner Circle launched in January, 2019; we are gathering quotes and other information and will update this space soon.
You can watch testimonials from some of my coaching clients though to see what they have to say about me. Also, there are many videos on my Facebook business page if you want a sense of my teaching / coaching style.
Contact me, and I will get back to you soon.
