Episode 019 – Handling Stress, Old School Advertising



This week I talk about handling the stress that comes with the holiday season, then I go over the importance of old school advertising strategies.  Owning a business is stressful enough, but holidays can quickly add more stress on top of that.  Learn how to take a break, and how to use that break wisely.  Next up is old school advertising and marketing methods that often get overlooked but are just as important as advertising on the digital landscape.  I go over some tried and true methods that will not only help to grow your business, but also help you build important connections.


Episode 018 – Themes



Creating themes for your booth and events may seem like a simple idea, but very few people are doing it.  Mentioned in previous episodes, this week I talk about creating themes as packages or to match a customer’s existing theme.  Putting together themes will place you out front in creating memorable experiences, and it will put you ahead of your competition.


Episode 017 – Backups of Everything



We all know that backups are important when it comes to our computers, but with a photo booth what else do you need to back up?  Everything, eventually.  In this episode I talk about not only backing up your Darkroom information but also your hardware.  I go over a suggested order in which to start backing up your booth hardware as your business grows as well as considerations for items like the printer, camera, and computer.  You don’t have to start out with a backup of everything, but you should certainly make it a goal to achieve as your business evolves.


Episode 016 – Props, Backdrops, and Templates



You are not limited to the props, backdrops, or templates that come with your booth.  We have talked about these in past episodes, but this week I go over how you can expand your offerings.  I talk about retail routes as well as getting creative and making your own items to expand your world of fun.
