  • Learn about the critical importance of both business plans and marketing plans, and how they will help you reach your short-term and long-term goals
  • Understand branding’s elements and how to define your own brand so that you stand out from the crowd
  • Assess your social media strategy to optimize your presence online, and learn about search engine optimization (SEO) to increase your findability

At the end of each chapter, Sal offers a Next Steps section, containing exercises that challenge you to actively implement the overall lessons in the book. By helping you create a solid plan, a strategy you can implement, and a vision for your business, The Photographer’s MBA gets you well on your way to creating and sustaining a photography business that will grow and succeed for years to come.
