The Content Confidence Accelerator is a content mastery programme for professional photographers.

In a small group of other photographers, you can work with me for up to 6 months and get coaching and support on how to create marketing content more confidently, more strategically and more consistently.

It’s all about the strategy, systems and support you need to boost your marketing and help you attract and convert more of your dream photography clients.

The Content Confidence Accelerator Programme

 

Would you benefit from the programme?

I’ve noticed that it’s photographers who struggle the most to attract their dream clients are the ones who don’t prioritise marketing, who lack a strategy and who feel unconfident creating content.

It’s time to do things differently if you:

  • experience periods of ‘feast and famine’ in your photography business
  • are uncertain about where your next client is coming from
  • and you take on less-than-ideal work (more often than you’d like to admit) simply because you need to pay the bills.

This programme has been designed to help you banish the marketing overwhelm and show up confidently, and more consistently. It also focuses on helping you build a powerful connection with the right calibre of photography clients, through content.

Zoe Hiljemark PR Service for Photographers

This programme has been created for you if:

  • you’re a professional photographer who is fed up with relying on referrals, social media, advertising or sheer luck to attract clients
  • you want to get more visible, become known and trusted, and have ambitions to grow your photography business
  • you recognise that marketing yourself more confidently and more consistently will help you to attract clients, but you don’t know how!
  • you’re unsure of what content you be creating and, if you do have ideas, you don’t know what to do first
  • you lack confidence around promoting yourself and feel that what you’re doing currently isn’t getting noticed by your ideal clients
  • you don’t have a strategy behind the content you create – you share what comes to mind in the moment, and are sporadic and irregular with your content because it’s all done at the last minute
  • you spend more time checking out your competitors than focusing on the work that would grow your own business
  • and, deep down, you feel uncomfortable putting yourself out there and just wish you didn’t have to market your business at all!

When you’re lacking confidence around your marketing and are not finding the time to work on it, or are constantly over-thinking your content, it’s easy to not get around to promoting yourself.

But, the thing is, there are people out there who need your services and expertise. Hiding away, without sharing your work or promoting your services is holding you back and limiting your success. I can help you reach more people and make a bigger impact!

Zoe is brilliant and is an expert in her field. We photographers are very lucky that she specialises in marketing for photographers.

She is very understanding and non-judgmental which is exactly what you need to be able to grow your confidence as it’s easy to be hard on ourselves when learning and changing mindset. Thank you, Zoe!”

Who is the Content Confidence Accelerator NOT for?

It won’t be a good fit for you if…

  • you need persuading that marketing is essential in order to grow your photography business
  • you’re after a quick fix to your marketing
  • you don’t have an open mind and aren’t prepared to commit to a content-marketing approach
  • if you’re not prepared to change how you market your photography business
  • if you don’t have the time to devote to the programme (you’ll need to allow for approximately 2-3 hours per week to really get the most from the resources and support available)
  • or, if you urgently need clients now and are looking for immediate results rather than longer-term strategic growth.

Benefits of working with me in the Content Confidence Accelerator

These are just some of the things you’ll gain from taking part in the programme:

1. MORE CONFIDENCE IN SELF-PROMOTION

The Content Confidence Accelerator has been designed to help you increase your confidence around marketing content creation and self-promotion.

After completing it, you’ll feel more confident about marketing, safe in the knowledge that you know how to tackle content creation in a strategic way and have learnt a system to create consistently without falling prey to writer’s block. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at how I manage content for my photography clients and discover how to implement my tried-and-tested content-led approach.

You’ll also become aware of how your current mindset is sabotaging your success and learn how to take a fresh approach. We’ll tackle the mind monkeys together, with the aim of you becoming braver than ever!

2. IDENTIFY YOUR IDEAL CLIENT (AND FINALLY UNDERSTAND WHY THIS MATTERS)

Marketing to everyone is marketing to no one. Getting clarity on your ideal client, and digging deep into what it is they are struggling with in relation to photography, can be transformational for your business as it informs your entire marketing content strategy.

You’ll gain clarity and confidence that will pay dividends in the long run!

3. DEVELOP A STRATEGIC CONTENT AND PROMOTIONAL PLAN TO USE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR AHEAD

This programme will provide you with strategies and workflows you can implement to become more consistent with your marketing, helping you attract ideal clients to your photography business.

With a considered content plan, based on research and data, you can stop panicking about what to focus on, what to post and how to stand out. You’ll have greater focus and a more consistent presence in the places where your ideal clients spend time.

4. CREATE A CONTENT PROMOTION SYSTEM THAT HELPS YOU GET CONSISTENTLY VISIBLE

Republishing is a powerful yet underutilised way to save time and leverage the full power of your content. You’ll develop a promotional system that helps you reach more of your dream clients and keeps you visible online. Less time spent procrastinating and more focused time spent ‘doing’ will mean that you achieve more!

 

An overview of the Content Confidence Accelerator

Am I the right marketing coach and mentor for you?

For the past 18 years, I’ve helped my clients promote themselves through publicity and marketing content. For seven of those, I’ve been working exclusively with photographers based in the UK and abroad.

As a specialist in photography PR and marketing, with extensive experience, I am considered an expert in my niche and have positive testimonials from a wide variety of photographers who have worked with me over the years.

Also, I’ve written many hundreds of blogs for photographers, have invested thousands of pounds in professional coaching and personal development, and spent years learning and implementing content marketing techniques.

Mine and my clients‘ websites rank no.1 in the world for target keyword phrases and I’ve built a successful business off the back of a fast-growing email list and online community. Basically, I live and breathe content marketing and am incredibly passionate about helping you to discover its value too!
