Here's an email I received from a frustrated member recently:

"Hi Chuck. I'm really frustrated. It seems like there is so much more competition lately. Other photographers are cutting prices, and there are a lot of new "photographers" going into the business.  Plus, it really seems like people are much more sensitive to price these days, with things like gas prices, and now the stock market instability.  It's tough right now.  Any suggestions?  Thanks very much."

Here's my answer:

Yes. Here are three underground strategies that will dramatically help you with this latest situation in the photo business - right now - and turn your photography business into a money machine quickly and easily:

Underground Strategy #1. You simply become better at selling - not pressure or trickery - but honest persuasion techniques based on Human Psychology.

The results are amazing. You'll almost INSTANTLY become better at handling objections and stalls, and using the secrets of "take-away-selling" to improve your sales percentages, as well as your sales averages. You will perish without these skills in today's business environment.

Now, I realize this isn't your favorite subject. We all want to believe that if our photography is "good enough" it will sell itself. But I'm here to tell you, after over 35 years of experience, that this just isn't true. Yes, you want your photography to be as good as it can be - but that will not cause your clients and prospects to buy your photography! Sad - tragic actually - but true.

For example, one of the many techniques we use in our studio is the "Qualifying Question."

It's very powerful. Whenever a prospect or client hesitates because of the price, or any other reason, we simply ask her, "If you don't mind me asking, how important are these photographs to you?" Her answer to that question gives us an instant indication of whether or not there is potential to her becoming a great client.

Underground Strategy #2. Be absolutely certain you are using the underground secrets of smart pricing and merchandising.

Remember, it's not the price you charge, it's HOW YOU PRESENT IT. Merchandising is "how you present it." Do this right, and grow and prosper - FAST. Do this wrong, and starve. Whether you are a Master Photographer or just getting started this will dramatically increase your profits. In fact, just one change I made in my photography business a few years back, doubled - yes DOUBLED my net profits INSTANTLY! What did I do? I used proven merchandising principles to put together an amazingly effective price list which combined packages and a-la-carte in such a way that people were much more willing to invest more dollars in their photography! Good merchandising and pricing makes a huge difference - and for NO MORE WORK!

It's so amazing how the correct pricing and merchandising will cause your business to skyrocket - and it happens IMMEDIATELY! I'm living proof of it.

Underground Strategy #3. You MUST begin using proven marketing and advertising secrets - simple little things that make a huge difference in your bottom line profits!

Whether you are in a large city, or a small town - your marketing and advertising skills are extremely important right now.

One of the "secrets" to my success, is that I have become extremely good at creating a large demand for my limited supply, and then I control the volume of work I do with the price. It works like magic. And even more importantly right now, it allows me to charge fees that are much higher than most of the other photographers in my area, and still continue to have more clients than I need to have! All because of the marketing and advertising! It's great!

These techniques are amazingly effective. They have had an ENORMOUS effect on my profits in my studio, and they will have the same effect on yours, because they are PROVEN to work - they are not theory - they are proven.

If this sounds interesting and exciting to you - that you can make MORE MONEY on LESS WORK - right now - in your town - then you're going to want to take advantage of something I'm ONLY offering to those photographers on my personal list - but you're going to need to act QUICKLY, as this offer expires in 24 hours, or when the remaining 5 free gift packages are gone - whichever comes FIRST...

Here's What Hal Jaffe of  Memphis, TN Has To Say About The Secrets Revealed On This Webpage:

"Chuck, I can't tell you enough what a lifesavers your monthly secrets have been!  I've had been a fairly successful photographer for many years - but things in the business REALLY started to change.  Things I'd been doing for years were no longer really working.  Then, I discovered your Money-Making Group.  Now, I'm making SUPER money!  I'm so thrilled that people are now willing to pay me what I deserve to be making!  This year, it looks like we're going to bring in about $500,000 - no kidding!  Next year, we're shooting to double that - and I have no doubt that's completely possible.  You have no idea (or obviously you do) what it's like to make a great living doing what I've always loved most.  Your devoted student and friend, Hal."

Top Secret Underground Audio CD:  "Never Worry About HOW TO SELL Your Photography EVER AGAIN!" 

    Have you ever wished that there was an easy way to "sell" your photography - a way that didn't involve becoming like a "used-car salesman" - a way that didn't involve you being the cheapest photographer in town - a way that didn't scare you to death every time it came time to ask for the money?

Does this sound familiar to you?

    You take some nice photographs of a child.  The mother seems very pleased with them, and now it's time to write up the order.  You're hoping it's going to be a good sale.   You ask her "what sizes would you like?"   She replies, "I think I'll take an 8x10 and a couple smaller ones."   Your heart almost breaks.  An 8x10 and a couple 5x7s is only going to make you a tiny bit of money.  Certainly not enough to live on, after your costs.

Here's What Jenny Wallace-Crounce of  Kingwood, TX Has To Say About The Secrets Revealed On This Webpage:

Average Sale Up by 400% - One Quarter Year Profits - $30,000!  Booking 90% of All Wedding Inquiries!

"Your secrets have been priceless to me!  I'm very new to photography, and after using your techniques for only 1 year, I've become one of the most successful photographers in my area.  Everytime I do what you teach I have amazing success.  Every time!  My average sale has JUMPED 400%!  ALL PROFIT!  For no more work than I was doing before.  In just the last quarter of last year, I made $30,000 profit!

My former most expensive wedding package is now the least expensive I sell.  I am closing 90% of my bridal consultations!  And the thing I love is that it's so easy, and it's not pressuring or "tricking" my clients.  It's all 100% honest. 

I just wanted to thank you personally."

  -Jenny Wallace-Crouse - Kingwood, TX

You'd Probably Throw Your Hands In The Air And Scream "I Spent All That Time Creating These Images For That!?"

Now, imagine this instead:

    The same customer - the same nice photographs.  Only instead of the 8x10 and couple 5x7s, she buys A 24x30 and two 11x14s!  FOR NO MORE WORK, you've just made a HUGE PROFIT!

So, How Do You Turn An 8x10 Sale Into A 24x30?

    It's easier than you think - but ONLY if you know the secret!  And that secret is DETAILED ON THIS AMAZING UNDERGROUND CD.  This secret DOES NOT involve pressure sales.  It doesn't involve a lot of STUDY AND MEMORIZATION.  It doesn't involve giving away a bunch of photographs for free.  Nothing like that.  You'll be SHOCKED AND AMAZED at how your clients will gladly invest in your larger photographs - never even considering a "tiny" 8x10 again!

Here's what ANOTHER photographer has to say about this secret in an email he sent me recently::

"Just wanted to drop you a note that I sold my first 40x50 last night!  First ever, and I followed the system.  Yea baby, you're right, it wasn't any harder to write 40x50 on the order than it was to write 8x10!"

                  - Scott Acree - Valencia, PA

 If you're serious about making more money on less work - this CD will be priceless to you!  Let's put a value of $99 on it - but you and I know it will be worth hundreds of times more money than that as you start using the secrets to bring in thousands of dollars you otherwise would not have had.

    Let's be honest here - Weddings ARE A LOT OF WORK!  That doesn't mean that we can't enjoy photographing them, but come on!  They can drive a photographer insane!  The pressure!  The crazy family members all putting in their two-cent's worth!  The long hours on weekends!  The logistical nightmare of photographing all those "once-in-a-lifetime" moments!  But weddings don't have to drive you crazy...

Here's What Paul Floyd of Mogadore, OH Has To Say About The Secrets Revealed On This Webpage:

Profits SOARED By 200%!

"Chuck, some great news!  I've used your secrets religiously, and I can't believe the results!  Immediately after using what I'd discovered in the a recent CD issue, one of my first clients bought my BIGGEST PACKAGE! A $6200 sale!  Last year, my sales were generally only around $1100!  What a difference, and for no more work.  Plus, in just two years time, my yearly profits have soared by 200%.  I can't say enough about what a lifesaver this has all been, and I'm only using a small fraction of the secrets you've given me.  I can't wait to see what happens when I implement them all.  The thing that really impressed me was how you guaranteed that this stuff works.  You said you'd give me my money back if I didn't get results, and that no-risk approach was what made my decision a no-brainer.  Any photographer who isn't sure whether to take the "leap of faith" and try out the Monthly CD's is absolutely nuts!  Heck, I'll give them their money back myself if it doesn't work!  Anyway, thank you again for your willingness to share your secrets."

  -Paul Floyd - Mogadore, OH

Two Audio CD Set:  "Amazing Marketing and Advertising Secrets Revealed"

    We're artists, not marketing course graduates!  How are we supposed to know how, where, and how much to pay for our marketing?  (actually, it's a good thing you're NOT a marketing course graduate - they don't teach this stuff in business school either!)

      This is a biggie!  You can't have been in business for longer than a few weeks without realizing that a funny thing happens if you don't advertise..... NOTHING

   A fact:  You will not have enough customers to make any sort of profit if you do not advertise correctly.  And the operative word is CORRECTLY.   If you are savvy enough to be advertising, you know that it's (usually) expensive as heck! Admit it - you'd much rather spend that advertising money on a new camera or some new lights, or a cool digital workstation, wouldn't you?

    If you simply put a small ad in the Yellow Pages for one year, it can cost you as much as a new camera!  

And don't even get me started on brochures!  They will suck you dry, leaving you with a bad taste in your mouth about "spending money to make money"!

Here's What Tammy Griffin of Ocala, FL Has To Say About The Secrets Revealed On This Webpage:

Built A NEW HOUSE Out Of Her Profits From ONE YEAR ALONE!

"Hello, Charles.  Your secrets have helped me so much!  I just sold my biggest session yet - $6400 for just one client.  It amazed me that they invested that much, and I know it's just going to get better.  I've made enough PROFITS this last year to build a new house!  This year, my profits are up by about 50%, and I'm still receiving great income from sessions I completed five months ago.  I love not having to do so many sessions, and still make the income I need.  Within months of using your secrets, everything started to come together, and I saw results immediately.  A word to any photographer who's not sure whether these secrets are right for the:  Get over it!  I'm serious!."

  -Tammy Griffin - Ocala, FL

    Direct marketing (marketing through the mail) is one of the most dangerous and risky forms of advertising out there.  Why?  Because most photographers are starting from SQUARE ONE - they're trying to make a "creative and attractive" brochure FROM SCRATCH, with some nice photos and some pretty fonts and a design that would win awards at graphic design conventions.  DON'T FEEL BAD if you think that's what a brochure should be like.  That's what we've been taught - but it's COMPLETELY WRONG!

    Did you know that, more than 85% of all color brochures sent out by photographers NEVER EVEN MAKE BACK THE MONEY IT COST TO PRINT THEM?  That's a staggering statistic.  So, all that time and money is down the drain.

    VERY expensive and time consuming.  I know.  I've done it.  I've done it for years.  And it's taken me that long to perfect the current Portrait Photography Brochure that I am using.  It works every time I mail it, so it's gone unchanged for over 5 years .  I'll reveal my secrets for this brochure on this CD, PLUS an even BETTER way to get great customers flocking to your door... 

Getting qualified, excited people to call you is easy - if you know the best kept marketing secret!

    There is a way to advertise your photography, FOR FREE, that will bring in more qualified customers than any other type of advertising or marketing.   Plus, you will know almost immediately how well it's working!  None of this "send out a brochure and pray the phone rings" garbage!

    This one advertising technique has been the backbone to my entire studio for the last 37 years.   And it still pulls in more qualified and excited customers than ALL MY OTHER ADVERTISING TECHNIQUES COMBINED. 

JUST IMAGINE.... What if you could have a method of advertising that would virtually "SUCK THE CUSTOMERS INTO YOUR STUDIO" on a daily basis, AND NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR IT?

And it's so easy, if you know the secrets.  DO NOT SPEND ANOTHER CENT on expensive marketing 'till you listen to these two audio CD's!

As I'm sure you can clearly see, hearing just ONE of these exclusive CD's above could easily be worth far more than the entire year's investment to be a member!
