Does talking about your work make you uncomfortable?
How about networking? It that stressful too?
In this comprehensive e-book, you’ll learn marketing techniques that make selling your work feel second nature & true to you
How often have you wished you were a social butterfly? I mean, you definitely know you’re not shy, but there’s just something about meeting people.
It feels forced. Plus, you never liked giving introductions, anyway. Remember intros at the beginning of school? You always hated them.
Thing is, now you’re a working artist, and you’re starting to see the same thing you saw back then. The people who grab the most attention are the same ones who love meeting people and talking about themselves. You know the type. The ones who talk with firm conviction and honesty.
How did they become so confident? How are some artists able to sell themselves no matter where they go?
Put them in an elevator with a dealer or a curator and they’ll walk out with a commission and a show. They always have a photography marketing plan ready. Is that something you want? Confidence, poise, and ease with talking about your work?
What does this have to do with marketing?
In a nutshell, that’s what I learned the most in James Maher’s newest ebook Creative Freelance Marketing.
Instructive. Wise. Honest.
It’s a 276-page ebook that doesn’t promise 1000s of followers in a year after reading it.
Instead, what it does show you is the day-to-day mechanics of getting noticed. Awaken you to the idea that marketing yourself boils down to gaining credibility with an audience who trusts you. Credibility gained by giving shape to the real human being behind the work.
And that’s why I’m so excited to share this in-depth ebook with you.
It will give you the perfect photography marketing plan.
With it, you’ll overcome self-defeating ideas about being an artist. Ones that say you shouldn’t take yourself seriously. Or that you must be humble and self-deprecating to be successful.
In its 250+ pages, you’ll find not only practical techniques on using social media, promoting content, and contacting galleries, artists, and art shows, but also insightful advice on reframing how you present your work.
You learn to treat everything you do as a way to introduce yourself firmly and with full force.
If you’re ever been uncomfortable talking about your work or networking at all, after reading this ebook, you’ll finally get the nerve to speak up and make connections both in real life and digitally with actionable, down-to-earth insights and a workable & effective photography marketing plan.
What will I learn in this ebook, exactly?
Beyond crucial, need-to-know essentials on starting a social media campaign or pulling emails through your website, you’re going to learn how to think clearly about what marketing means to you and your work. Moreover the book focuses on developing a full proof photography marketing plan for you.
Also included in the ebook are nine interviews with talented creative professionals in various fields. You’ll learn from Ann Rea, an artist and art business coach, and Corwin Hiebert, a photography marketing expert, as they both talk about what they’ve learned working with creatives and photographers of all types.
You’ll learn from Nicolina Johnson, Ben Umanov, who both grew successful global artistic businesses from the ground-up. Peter Hurley breaks down how he built his coveted photography brand, and Penelope Trunk explains how she grew the largest online individual career blog in the world.

But remember these interviews are included on top of everything James Mahler explains.
