ENGAGE: THE PHOTOGRAPHER’S GUIDE TO THE CLIENT INQUIRY MAGAZINE

October 07, 2015   //   POSTED IN: FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHER, PHOTOGRAPHY RESOURCES, PRODUCT SPOTLIGHTS, theMC NEWS

TESTIMONIALS
_______________________________

“How does Amanda know?  Better yet, how did Adam from The Modern Collective know?  I needed to update my senior magazine.  I had a custom magazine made almost 3 years ago and I outgrew it.  The task was heavy on my mind.  I knew it would take a lot of time which I did not have.  And then this guide comes out!  Not only did it fit the look and feel of my website, but I am able to customize it to fit MY needs.  It has a gorgeous clean and modern feel to it. And it has room for all the valuable information you need to convey to your client!  Don’t know what that is?  Well the help is all here in this beautiful guide.
The videos are a bonus and a great way to know what to put in your magazine and if you are not comfortable with photoshop they hold your hand through the process.  My favorite part?  The pdf guide of a finished magazine to give you starting point.  This is not something you would want to copy but instead insert your own voice.  Sometimes just staring at those blank lines can be daunting but to gain inspiration to what others have put in there is super helpful so you can start typing and fill it with YOU!
This guide is so cohesive, well thought out and for more than just the senior photographer.  It could literally be all genres.  I’m going to make a separate one for my tween and teen clients! Grab this guide while you can and create your own one of a kind client guide.  Have fun with it and insert your voice, your style to make it all about YOU!”

“What can I say . . . Amanda Holloway and The Modern Collective have done it again!  Engage is NOT your average been-there-seen-that senior magazine template.  It is the most inclusive and informative client welcome resource I have ever seen.  
From inception to publication, Amanda & Adam share step-by-step instructions on how to make the perfect client welcome magazine for your business. Not only are the included templates gorgeous and easy to use, they have included a TON of educational information and instructional videos.  Amanda’s detailed .pdf regarding the whys behind what to include in (and what to exclude from!) the magazine are invaluable in determining what information is appropriate for your magazine.  Adam Hommerding’s how-to photoshop video is full of photoshop education and is a HUGE time-saver when it comes to actually creating your magazine!  Amanda goes above-and-beyond in her branding video to help you customize the template to your brand, including information on how to chose the best images for your magazine and how changing the details will help set you apart!  
And, the best thing about Engage is that the information is not exclusive to welcome magazines . . . the tips and tricks can be used for any and all marketing pieces!  Engage is a MUST HAVE for the senior photographer!”
-Heather Owens with Heather Owens Photography

“Engage is a serious game-changer when it comes to marketing for your business. Most of us are familiar with Amanda’s genius “senior magazine” and we also keep up with Adam’s amazing designs so this is a win-win for everyone! I was able to take the easy-to-use PSD files and not only drop in my images to create a high-end magazine for my business, but I was able to fully customize it to fit my brand. They did such a great job making it user-friendly and if you do have any hiccups, the videos that came with the download are very intuitive and thorough. I also loved reading the PDF document that they added to the download because it completes the package by telling you WHY Amanda uses certain information in the magazine and it really allows you to understand the importance of the senior magazine on a conceptual level so you can truly customize it for you! “
