Some “Event Photography for Profit” Reviews.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and felt it was worth the trip from Hereford. You must think of the outlay as future investment for a very lucritive future. You will also get more out of this course if you ask alot of questions and get involved. Stuart and Mike are a great pair and really knowledgable, milk them dry and they will give you all their extensive knowledge!!! Sit there quietly and you will learn but you won’t have as much fun!! I am off with my fancy printer and my head is buzzing, can’t wait to get started!!!!
An excellent day by Stuart and Mike. I learned a lot from the sessions. It isn’t only the main parts of the course that are so informative but Mike & Stuart’s anecdotes and answers to individual questions are invaluable. They are both so keen to help people succeed without trying to sell products. So many professionals are very protective of their skills and working practices it is refreshing to find two people and a company that are prepared to share their knowledge and experience. I would certainly recommend System Insight as the first point of contact for anyone thinking of moving into Event Photography – I don’t think you will find two more knowledgeable people in this area than Mike and Stuart.
I first came into contact with Systems Insight whilst searching for a dyesub printer for event photography. When I discovered they ran courses I signed up for the first available and was extremely pleased that I did. Having spent 20 years in the graphics industry I undestood that workflow would be one of the biggest issues. How best to get the product to the customer. Prior to this course I had spent many days considering many different scenarios and the best approach. With their years of experience System Insight gave me a cost effective solution to every workflow problem I had considered plus for some I hadn’t. This alone paid for the course several times over as I would have almost certainly spent money needlessly had I not attended. In addition to this the sales advice will increase my turnover at each event and the expert market advice from a event organiser outlines the best approach to market. Overall this course offers excellent value for money and I left full of enthusiasm and with a new confidence, bolstered by the excellent support offered by System Insight.
Mike and Stuart have got a very nice and relaxed way of putting all the relevant points of the day across,it was a thouraghly enjoyable and fun day from which I learned a lot and left with a headful of ideas for my new business venture,so it is a big thanks to the both of them, and for me it is upwards on onwards.
Stuart and Mike immediately put me at my ease and explained that my sales and marketing background would be a great asset in helping to build a successful business. The teaching style is very informal with a stream of anecdotes to illustrate many of the points that are raised. The content of the course mainly concentrates on the practical aspects of successfully marketing your business and running events rather than the technical aspects of the photography involved – although there was an excellent hands on session at the end of the day. I definitely learned a great deal from my day with System Insight and I am sure that just by avoiding the mistakes and pitfalls they highlighted I will save a huge amount of time and money. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, Mike and Stuart are always very generous with their time and advice over the phone and this aspect of their ongoing service will mean that I will certainly be supporting them with my future orders for equipment and supplies as my business hopefully grows from strength to strength.
Some “Marketing for Success” Reviews.
I had no idea that the marketing day would be so beneficial to me. Now I am looking at things completely differently that should enable my website to get noticed more and for me to have more success at winning new business. I think it’s best if you do both courses as you really will get the most out of it. Stu and the team are very friendly and the two days were relaxed and very informative – highly recommended.
What can I say about this course it was great! People kept saying to me that your photos are great, why don’t you sell some? I thought yeah I could do that, But with no previous business history I set up and thought it’s easy, but I wasn’t selling much. lacking the confidence to charge although I have a mass of experience dealing with people. Having attended the course it has given me the confidence to know I can do this. The team were fantastic, the laid back way they imparted their knowledge was fantastic and I felt at ease throughout the two days. Yes if your going to attended the Event course then do attend the marketing course it would be a big mistake not to. I have come away knowing which direction I am going and the equipment I need (they don’t try to sell you equipment they give you the knowledge to know what you need). Since I have come home my knowledge has already given confidence to approach two new clients on the Wednesday and both have agreed to give my services a try. Cheers for the great two days will be in touch soon to let you know how I have done. The hotel is a great venue as well very helpful and very clean.
Having worked in marketing for an organisation with a £100k marketing budget, I didn`t think I needed to do this course. Wrong! The course showed me how to market with a budget of £0 per annum for marketing, and provided not only useful tips, but the reassurance that I was on the right track. The criteque and suggested improvements to my existing marketing was particularly helpful – and all was delivered in the usual friendly manner we love of System Insight
I just wanted to say a big thank you to Stuart, Mike and Kit for their first class training courses. Between them they have years of experience in marketing and event photography and were able to answer my endless questions! The training courses were excellent and really inspirational. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is thinking of attending. System Insight are a first class company to deal with. They always go the extra mile to help their customers and give you honest and helpful advice.
After attending the “event photography for profit” course the day before,the “marketing for success” was an even bigger eye opener!… so much information was given that other courses I have been on have treated like state secrets…thank you Kit and Stuart,for a extremely informative,inspiring and enjoyable day,to anyone who will listen,try this course.
