Avi Kniznik – AK Expressions Photography
In 2016, my business had reached a point where I needed to take some big steps to move it forward. I knew I need to change my sales approach, increase my prices and take a chance, but I was worried that by doing this I would lose clients along the way.
I needed the input of a professional to help me envisage and plan how to reach the targets I had in mind and sought the services of Dan. Before meeting Dan, he emailed a page of questions for me to consider and answer and a few days after, I received comprehensive feedback, including achievable goals. Dan explored and analysed the photography market that I wanted to move into and produced a plan for me to change the promotion of my work, presentation at wedding fairs and my pricing structure.
Through continued support from Dan via telephone, email and face to face I have started to see the benefits of his marketing plan. I have discovered I was working with blinkers on and couldn’t see how to move my business forward, but Dan helped guide me to the start of a new journey. I continue to have contact with Dan every so often, and his aftersales service allows me to bounce new ideas around.
I am truly humble to have had Dan’s input into helping me grow my business and move into the next phase. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking to restructure, grow or improve their business.
