Thanks Jeff

The day before PartnerCon last week the four of us, David Salomone, Davide Greene, Liana Lehman, and me got to hang with Jeff Jochum for about 6 hours and for those of you who don't know Jeff he is the Head of Marketing at Pictage and he actually came out of retirement because he really believes in what Pictage is doing and how they're going to be the company that is gonna make an awesome change in the wedding industry. (and they already are!)

Anyway...he spent the whole day with us teaching us about presenting in public and how we should be knowledge driven and make everything valuable. It's something I need a lot of work at but I was just so amped that he took a whole day to share with us all that he's learned.

***CLICK HERE*** to see a motivational presentation he made and showed at the first PartnerCon!

Then the next day at PartnerCon he shared some of the cool things that Pictage will be releasing soon and he also shared his strong belief in Gary Fong's way of selling albums. I heard there's been some commotion on the forum about that and I haven't been able to read the thread but I also see Gary's way of selling albums being the best way to increase your revenue from an event. I've chosen to be a "fee based" photographer so I charge my clients for shooting and then stay away from the backend sales but there is no doubt in my mind that his system works very very well!

I'm so excited for WPPI :)

i like fee based too but you sure can make a ton of money the other way. if your gonna go that route you almost need someone to focus on just that side of things.
