Announcing The Best Business Practices For Real Estate Photographers Online Class

SuzanneClassThis is a guest post by Suzanne Feinberg, a PFRE coach, who is announcing her new business class for real estate photographers.

As the year draws to an end, we should all be thinking about how successful 2015 has been and what we would do differently in 2016. If there was one improvement I think we all need to accomplish, it is better business practices. So many Real Estate Photographers work "Camera to Mouth" (as in Hand to Mouth) and don’t really plan out their hours, days, weeks, months or year. So many of us don’t really understand the real consequences of not running our business as a business. That’s not to say we don’t keep accurate records - whether computerized or by hand, but rather the consequences of not having a single consistent message (brand and value proposition) that we can communicate to our clients and our potential clients.

The Best Business Practices For Real Estate Photographers class will teach and give you tools to do the following:

  1. Master communication best practices to get real estate agents to take an action with your business.
  2. Reposition your website and social media sites to attract and retain business.
  3. Minimize and eliminate hidden liabilities blocking your clear path to earning a good income.
  4. Improve your bottom line and learn to keep more of your earned income.


I have specifically designed this online course to teach Real Estate Photographers to improve and implement these four best business practices. This is the first of several 4-week courses designed to teach and provide the tools necessary for success in 2016 and beyond. Our course is interactive and includes the following:

  • A private community forum.
  • Hours of video.
  • Resource guides.
  • Templates and power tools.
  • A course portal that helps you keep track of your progress and allows you to return to lessons over and over again to review and understand the necessary changes you need to make to enable your business to be more predictable, consistent and successful.

The course begins on January 18th, 2016 and if you sign up through this blog, you will be granted a $50 tuition discount (cannot be combined with other discounts or stipends offered). Just use the Code: PV4RE50. There are many bonuses - including 5 free TourBuzz credits for each student attending the class, guest speakers, and a bonus mastermind session two weeks after the course ends to wrap up any loose ends or answer any additional questions. If you sign up for the course prior to December 31, 2015, you will be eligible to receive a 5th week of instruction.

I look forward to seeing you at the course. You can email me questions at the class support page.

  1. Yes, this would probably help me and I wish I could but it's $449 more than I can afford. I think I'm done done with RE photography even though of all the kinds of photography I've done in the past 52 years, photographing houses was by far the most enjoyable. Dealing with cheap brokers and agents (no mater how successful they were) who refuse to pay no more than $50 or so were no fun to deal with.

  2. Looks like good material. @Jerry you are right realtors can be cheap especially when they spend on marketing but the good ones know the value. Target the successful good realtors in your market.

  3. MVL - Thanks for your reply. I've been to all the top realtors in my area and when it comes to money there isn't a dimes worth of difference, they are all cheap. I've only found one out of the hundreds I've contacted who does care. At most she has about ten to twelve houses a year and pays three times as much as any of the 50 top will pay to photograph a house. Usually, she will sell a house in one to three weeks. The last four I photographed for her sold in less than one week. She says the quality photos I give her helps to get people in so she can sell them. 99% of the other realtors use some form of run n gun snappers. She has talked with other agents in her office about my photos. They look at them and they cannot see any difference between what I produce and what all the snappers do. The only thing they can see is how much it costs and that is all they care about!

  4. Hi Jerry and MVL. I understand your issues with the "cheapness" of the agents and the cost of the class. But think of it this way. If your average sale is $150 (this is the national average over the 300 sites we checked in the United States), it would take three new homes to pay for the class with the tuition discount. With this class, we will teach you how to keep more of that $150 in your pocket as well as create packages that are more profitable and reasonably priced for the agents. This course has a complete money back guarantee for the first 14 days which means you get two full weeks of the course, plus the course materials before you have to make the decision to finish the course or ask for the refund. We can also offer to break the pricing down into two monthly payments.
