The Art of Sales for Professional Photographers (Pre-Launch)

Master the exact business strategies and sales process to increase your revenue in 5 weeks using the Mint Sales® system for photographers (without being salesy or fake, because that's gross).

What they don't teach you when you learn ISO, aperture and how to find your editing style


You are about to master the art of photography sales and make more MONEY. Ready to easily close sales bigger than you ever thought possible?

You became a photographer because you know how to capture images that last a lifetime. But in order to succeed in business, you must master the strategies that SELL your work and actually make good money. If you're like me 10 years ago, you are likely giving away all your images for pennies because you can't figure out 1) how to actually make decent money from this and 2) what steps you need to take to make that happen. Or maybe you're starting your photography business and trying to get it right the first time. I'm going to show you the steps to a profitable photography business. We are not running a hobby!

The Art of Sales course is the most effective way to learn advanced sales methods to sell your art and increase profits in just 5 weeks using the Mint Sales® system for photographers. This course is designed to teach you how to transition from shoot and burn, or very low profits, to a successful, thriving business you are proud of.

  • Business sustainability and profit in mind. What your photography business needs to thrive.
  • Foundational knowledge and step by step strategies to implement. Master selling effortlessly and position yourself as the photographer to hire!

What's included:

  • Weekly video instruction for each course module
  • Your own copy of the Mint Sales® roadmap to complete as you move through the course
  • Swipe files and scripts
  • Lifetime access

HELLO

I'm Leili, the founder of Mint Studio Creative and creator of The Art of Sales. 

After 10 years of working as a photographer, I developed the Mint Sales® system, a powerful action packed method of understanding and using buyer psychology and advanced sales strategies to close large sales in your photography business and increase your profit.

The Mint Sales® system enables me to work with only a few clients per month and make a great income with my photography. I love helping other photographers make their businesses WORTH the time away from family, kids, and other priorities. 

I am....

-a believer of following your dreams and multipassionate about so many things (who can pick just one thing in life?!)
-wife to a great guy (we've been married 12 years) and mom to two boys
-obsessed about business and use my Masters Degree in Psychology to teach photogs about consumer behavior and the sales process
-operating a successful photography business and passionate about mentoring other photographers in business systems and profit strategies.

I want your inbox to look like mine

I know what you're thinking because I've been there too...

  • I'm not good with words
  • I have no time to do this
  • I have no idea where to start
  • Is this going to work?
  • I can't even find clients let alone book any clients
  • My inquiries ghost me
  • I'm not good enough 
  • My photos aren't that great
  • I can't charge more
  • I don't know how to sell anything
  • I just want to take pictures

(Ps. You deserve WAY MORE. Sometimes all it takes is someone in your corner who understands your journey and is cheering you on - that would be me - with the right kind of help. You CAN make changes and see an impact in your bank account.)

But imagine:

Imagine your first sale where a client pays $2,000 for photos with you. They buy more digitals, prints or maybe something else. You don't automatically give them all the digitals, and they want more. You're the same photographer you were before. You take the same photos and run your sessions the same way, but now you finally know how to use psychology and advanced sales strategies to move clients to BUY from you and pay you. Now you have things to sell that people want to buy. Would that change your life? 

I can tell you I was in shock and disbelief...trying to play it cool, the first time I had that experience. My first sales session resulted in a $2,500 sale. It was nothing short of CRAZY and I was literally screaming afterwards!!!

Imagine clients giving you gifts and thank you cards because of how much they appreciate what you have done for them. Imagine a life where your photography business is booming and you are feeling incredibly fulfilled. 

It's possible, because I've been in your shoes and now I am here, on the other side of courage.
