Then we are on the same page. I typically will work with 2-3 people a year. Their package costs $150.00 and they get 12 poses to print in any size they want up to 11x14. If They send me 3 referrals they get it for free. I apply a 33% discount to every order for each referral. So 3 and its free for the people i choose to do some modeling for the program.
Also, I have applied a discount for everyone. Any referral from their friends gets anyone a 20% discount. So 5 referrals gets then their base packages for free and discounts up to 40% for wall portraits and albums.
After 5 yrs of shooting seniors I know what we have all been taught by PPA instructors Does not work for the senior market anymore. Every new senior photographer out there gets 5-6 spokes models. Its ridiculous what has happened to the senior market. And all the kids are very aware. I have kids coming up to me every years asking what i going to give them to Be a spokesmodel. The program idea has been beat to death. My suggestion to everyone is to avoid it like the plague.
I'm going to do a spokemodel program but it's going to cost enough to more than break even. I have to figure out the details yet though. Where I do business, the main photog does all his sittings for free then makes up for that with mega expensive packages.
