FULL EPISODE TRANSCRIPTION:
Hi friend. I'm so excited to be chatting with you today in this podcast, clarity coaching session with now, one of my amazing ongoing clients, Destiny Tillery from the dream builder podcast, we're mapping out her podcast, which is so much fun because you guys get to be part of the original conversation when we got everything up and running just a few short months ago. So be sure that after you listen in and be a fly on the wall on our session, you go and check out Destiny's podcast. Wherever you listen to shows, especially if you're a photographer, look into scale, look into grow. And as I go through all of these questions with her and map out her show, think about how this might work for you and how you can tweak and make some slight changes to your own show. Or if you don't have one yet, girl, you know, we got to get this going, right? You do know this, implement those questions into your own situation and see what you get out of it. I know you're going to love this one. I'll see you. Yeah.
Welcome back to the mompreneur mastermind show, where we choose to run insanely successful passive income businesses that light us up while consuming iced coffee Rawless and flawless, and maybe breaking it down to some gangster rap while our kids aren't looking. Did we just become best friends? Yes. Yes we did. Hey, I'm Stephanie gas, six figure corporate exec turned top 1% network marketer turn podcaster. I believe when we let God light our path, we experienced true miracles. Welcome sister. Let's get pumped up for today's show.
Cool. So talk to me about what is our goal for this time? So I've got my podcast going on, but I need clarity and I need a tagline and a description. I feel like I'm all over the place and that there's no real clear mission to the podcast. And so I need to tag line and let everybody know what it actually is and who I'm there to help. Because right now I don't have that. I don't know why. I didn't think I needed that. I don't know. I love that. Sweet. I love your channel art. Thank you. Very good. And then you said Facebook group name, description, and then if we have time, we'll talk about clarity for the freebie and landing. Yes. So I opened up where I started the Facebook group last night, like midnight and I got it going and like, I didn't invite anybody to it.
So there's nobody in there yet. I just have it created, have the rules and the question's loaded. I did create the cover art for it, but again, I need a tagline or something that I can, would it be the same as the podcast or something different? The logo for the dream builder podcast? I just did it as dream builder community and instead of the word podcast on the Facebook group up at community, but I can change all of that. So I didn't want to go any further until I talked to you today. Perfect. I love it sounds good. So let's then start with your tagline description. I'm going to share my screen just cause you can see what I'm looking at. Okay. So when I'm looking at your show, we've got the dream builder podcast and we absolutely need a tagline here, right? Destiny, because the dream builder, what that could mean anything.
Yes. Anything, but it's really specific to what you're teaching, what you have right now. How do I build the photography business of my dreams? What steps do I take to grow my business and meet my goals? Introducing the dream builder podcast, a place where aspiring photographers can learn not only how to create and build a successful photography business, but also where we discussed turning dreams of all kinds into goals and goals into reality tune in for in depth discussions from fellow entrepreneurs who are now experts in their fields. We'll discuss everything from streamlining your business to achieving your dreams. We aren't just dreamers we're dream builders. Okay. So when I think of tagline, I really want to have this promise, right? So we really want to have like eight words or less that has who, how and the end result. And then we can pair it down to even smaller.
It's like the sentence of what this brand is and what it stands for. Do you have anything right now or are we starting from scratch? We can start from scratch. I just want to know what's in your brain. What you, I have thrown around a couple of things. Yeah. Nothing really felt right. And are we talking to the woman who does she have a photography business yet? She does. She's already established for, I mean, she could be newly established, but she is already established. And my avatar would be someone who has been doing it for a few years and they've gotten good at it, but they don't have systems in place to be able to make it a sustainable business long term. And they're reaching burnout. [inaudible], They're doing everything themselves and they have no time for their own family because they're always behind the computer and they feel like they're just spinning their wheels.
Not really making any money. They're not making enough money to see it as an exciting business opportunity, longterm. Like they're only making enough to, they may be get by. Okay. So we know they're already established. I heard you say a how it systems is there a second towel? So if we can give, let's say we have a girl who's maybe what? 33. She's a mom. Is she doing photography full time? Yes. Okay. Well, I don't know. I mean, it could be that she's doing it part time and trying to make that leap into making it full time, but didn't really know how he doesn't know what to do first, actually, how to make the money, how to get the clients, how to book your calendar and which are all systems. So we have to be using that term. Is there any other how that you give her?
Like, for example, if you look at me and I'm saying, while I'm helping this Christian entrepreneur with clarity coaching, that's a how podcast coaching. That's a, how and what else? Like systems time management. Right? So what are the little, how other how's that we're giving this person to take that photography business from man to like, Oh, this can be a full time thing. I'm making tons of money. I'm always booked out what other house and don't get caught in like the term just spit. How's that me? What else can you teach her? How to find the right clients, how to attract the right clients, how to make more money per client or more session, how to work less and make more. What about mine? Is there mindset component to this? Yeah, it would definitely have to be a scarcity versus abundance months at work on that.
For sure. Maybe also like when I think of this, I think of a saturated market where you have to stand out and use a lot of personal branding or like customer service, how to elevate the client experience and to stand out in the market. Absolutely. Yes. Also online marketing, like there's so many cool things you can teach her. Okay. There's so many things in my mind, but it's hard to, it's hard to like plug a word to it, but we can do this because if we look at one word is systems destiny. When I look at, okay, anything that has to do with customer experience, client experience, working less, anything back office, anything structured, it can fall under this word of you, teach systems that help them scale their photography business. Right? And then there's a second word that we need though, that has to do with feeling or something that they're going to achieve because they're a mom.
And they're just like what I was. I had no time. My children would ask me to come play with them. And I would say, no, I'm so sorry. I really want to, but I have to edit. I can't, I have to get this done. And then my clients were waiting on me to get done. And I'm like, you know what? Something has to change. I have to change the entire way that I have set my business up to protect my family time so that I can devote more of my time and attention and serve my family in a better way. And so that is really where my heart is, is to get these women that have started from mostly have started just by taking pictures of their family and their children. And they've grown a business that now they are at a pivotal moment. They're like, okay, I'm here.
I'm either going to grow and make this a thing. Or I'm going to go back to nursing or I'm going to get a real job, a real job. And in my heart breaks for them. Cause I see them all around. They're just closing up. Shop you exactly hit the nail. The head we went from, this is a tangible podcast just with tacticals of systems to, Oh no. The secret of what I'm teaching you is all the systems that help you automate this photography business a bit more and make more so that you are working less yet making more because you're a mom. Yes. This is specifically for photographers who are moms, right? Would you say slightly? I would say so. Yes, because she cares about time. Freedom. And as a photographer, there is nothing else that is more hustle and grind like that business is y'all work.
And then you edit when you're home. It is a lot of work, but it doesn't have to be so much work because there's options to outsource there's options to get assistant photographers, helping you out. You can get a VA to help you guys with stuff with marketing, you could outsource marketing. So there's so many ways. So let's write down outsourcing as another topic anyway. So here's what I wrote down. We're close. I'm not sure it's there. Okay. Systems to scale your photography business by working less yet making more. Do you think that the common younger mom who's into photography, do you think that they would know what scale means? So other words for scale, let's just see if there's a better word systems too. Increase, explode, level up level up. Level's very fun right now, systems to Uplevel your photography business by working less yet making more.
And we can even go a little bit farther to say for the busy mom, right? Like we could be even more clear about who's it for, and then pair that down somehow for the channel art, for example. But the more clear we are like, this is your whole Instagram sentence. It's like, yeah, we're the dream builder podcast and the dream builder brand. However, what is that? It's niche it's systems to Uplevel your photography business by working less yet making more for the busy mom. Yeah. Tell me how that feels. Does it feel like it's there or we need to tweak it a bit for the busy mom. I like it. Do you think that we could have more something that pulls on the heartstrings a little bit more? Well, that's where we get into description. So tagline is like in your face so obvious. Gotcha.
Anybody reads that they're like, Oh, okay. This is like minus. So it's like clarity coaching for Christian mompreneurs, get clarity, launch a podcast and monetize using courses and coaching. Gotcha. Yeah. It doesn't pull on one heartstring. What it does is it gives her a specific promise right away, but she clicks on anything of mine or she continues reading the description. Now I'm triggering her to listen. My titles are going to trigger her to listen, but you've got to know what is this in? Like eight, 10 words or less. Yeah. Okay. Well that's my goal. That's what would draw me in. I would want to know how I could elevate my business on a work list. I'm going to make more and I'm a busy mom, so yes, let's tune in. And I like with systems, the reason I just love systems so much is it's like, we can say we could cut that out.
Right. And say, uplevel your photography business by working less and making more for busy moms. How with what? And so that's where we're adding systems. And now it's even a deeper promise because almost everyone I work with and talk to destiny, what they're missing his organization and systems they don't know up from down. And they're like, I'm just a creative. I go take the pictures. What do you mean? I need systems. And you're basically saying, if you have all these systems, that's, what's going to take you next level. So let me ask you this. Whenever I've done all the systems when we've talked about on the podcast, all the systems. Yeah. How will I introduce new content? And it would, if it doesn't fall into that specific criteria of a system, don't worry about it. Don't worry about it. Okay. Systems is just a component of what you're teaching.
You get to teach any and everything. Destiny that does this up levels, her photography business, or helps the busy mom photographer. Okay. That's it like anything that touches her is okay. The other thing, if you feel weird about systems is we could Nick's this in the tagline, but then start with that in the description. Like if you feel like I don't want to be stuck to that term, that could be a category instead. You know how I talk about categories? So we've got dream builder podcast. We have destiny at the top. Then we have dream builder podcast or DreamBuilder brand right under DreamBuilder you're a photographer still, right? Yeah. You got photography, photography. Then you have this brand of teaching photographers, dream builder brand. And then there's the podcast under here. There's going to be coaching, probably going to be a passive product. So all those things are under here will under the podcast is further categories.
So it's like this web that goes with your brand down, down, down. So under the podcast, how do we help? How do we help the busy mom up level through systems at our back office, right through systems, through mindset, through client relationships, client cultivation, attraction, being authentic, all of those words that are like about the humanization side of who she is. And she has to connect connection, maybe connection. That's the word. And then the last one is marketing. And then under marketing is like leads and closing sales and all the things. Yeah. So really I think if you feel weird about this word, we could just have it as a category and anything that fits in these four categories, everything we wrote up here fits in one of these, does that make you feel a bit more free to, I like it either way. I'm going to do whatever you say to do.
No, but I do like, it does sit well with me to say uplevel. Cause immediately you're like, it's an increase. It's elevating something. What are we, you didn't know? You have in your tagline mompreneur will in the photography world. We sometimes say Montauk. They're like, Oh, that should be something that goes in there or just keep it. If Montauk is widely known, is that a widely known term? I don't know. I've been doing this for almost 12 years. So it is to me, but I don't know that it would be to everybody. Maybe not let's leave. And we can even, we don't have to let's use mom talking in the description because it is a searchable phrase. Okay. Oh, is that okay? All right. So let's go with option one. Uplevel your photography business by working less yet, making more for the busy mom option two systems, mindset and marketing for the busy mom photographer or for the photography boss.
Mom. Yeah. Sounds good. Yeah. So let's pick one of those and then we'll move to description. So that second one was systems, mindset and marketing for the busy photographer. Mama is that boss, mom, photographer, boss, mom. But the only thing I see in that second one is it doesn't say up level your photography business, but we can say like it's inferred because if we're saying systems meant at marketing for the busy photographer boss, mom, I kind of liked the first one a bit better because it's more clear of the promise of what's the end result, Uplevel your photography business by working less and making more for the busy mom. I like the person I do too. All right. Let's move on to the description. So I'm just going to say this. I talk fast and it's recorded. All right. Hey, you busy mama and incredible business woman taking pictures for a living, trying to scale that photography business and burning the candle stick at both ends.
Hi, I'm destiny. I've been a photographer for plank years and I am here to tell you this doesn't have to be so hard. I am here to teach you how you can Uplevel your photography business with simple systems, mindset, shifts, client connection, hacks, and marketing. That's going to completely transform the way you run your photography business. Let's work less yet. Make more and have more time for the things that actually matter. How does that sound in those phenomenal? Yeah, but that's what she's going to do. Yes. Yes. Okay. In this podcast, I will gift you everything I know about scaling a successful photography business, along with bringing on guest experts who are going to pour into your business, join me as we make this easier, more fun and more successful for you and your family. Welcome to the DreamBuilder podcast. Yeah. I love it.
I understand how you can do this, but it's a true gift. It's amazing. Okay. The whole time, like when we first get on I'm like, Lord God, give us the words. Give us the words. Give us the clarity. Give us the words. Give us the clarity. Great. Thank you. All right. So I haven't really been worried about that one. So now we have tagline. We have core categories, destiny. We have topics that I want you to get into. Like if it we've got to get an on here, what you're currently doing, it sounds much more broad to me. I'm not sure what you guys have been talking about, but I want you to get so specific of, if it doesn't touch one of these four don't air, it don't have them on. And it has to be for this woman's specifically, right? The mom photons.
What'd you say mom talks or the mom talk. Don't have it because it's like, you want to attract all the photographer, mamas. You are going to be well known in the Montauk industry as the GoTo for scaling, growing her business. Cool. Cool. Okay. Love it. So that feels really good to me. Let's move on to Facebook group name and description. Would I just do the same thing and can I name it? Okay. Dream builder community. Or do I need to keep it with the podcast and then put community, well, what's going to be your thing. Is the podcast going to be like how I am or it's like, that's my ultimate thing. And then that funnels different places. Or do you have a different space that you're showing up? No, I'm not doing YouTube or anything like that. The only place I'm really pouring into his, the podcast is my number one.
And then Pinterest and Instagram. Those are my things. And through that, I shared this with you before in the mastermind group. But the ultimate goal is to create a course based on the feedback that I get. And based on my experience over the years of what I needed, what I feel like it would be able to take somebody from zero to 10. I love that. So here's why I do want it to say your podcast somewhere on here, because somebody finds my group. I get a lot of organic people finding my group because of my search terms, destiny. I still want them to know, Oh, it's a podcast. So I should go listen to the podcast. So we kind of want to cross promote. So maybe what you could say is the dream builder. And you said community. Yeah. So something like the dream builder community or the dream builder, sisterhood, number one podcast for busy mom photographers.
So still put it here. Like who's it for right here in the graphic. And then put you claim it. Number one podcast to scale your photography business. Go ahead and take it. Cause it's for the taken. And then I have like right here, it's all pointing to the show. But for my name, the name is mompreneur mastermind. So I think for you, you could have the name of your group name. Just DreamBuilders if that's available or DreamBuilder podcast is fine or DreamBuilder community, right. That's what made it, I made it, we build our community and Oh, my cover art. It has podcasts. I just took the word podcast out and put community the same. Okay. What's the search under like what's the extension? Well, it says the dream builder community is all as the title. Maybe it's not it's coming up. Is it? Oh, is it searchable?
Is it secret or is it, I don't think that, that I set it up as secret. Okay. Anyway, just make it sure that it's whatever that is. It's like I said, I didn't put all of the things I knew I needed to put on there. Yeah, that's fine. So just make sure it's searchable and I think the DreamBuilder community is fine. Just make sure on your channel art destiny, you have them pointing to your podcast. Okay. Take out the, I think maybe it's just strangled or community. Perhaps I tried that. I don't know. Maybe I do have a secret for now. I really don't remember. It was at midnight whenever I hated it last night. Anyway, one other thing in the group. So when you set it up, the biggest thing that's been driving for me is these tags. And I need to change these tags, but for your tags, I would have mom tog mom photographer, or I think mom talks is really the phrase that people will search for.
Cause mom photographer could be there taking pictures of moms, right? Or what else? Photography podcast. That needs to be one. Okay. Grow your photography. Business is a term that someone might search for photography business. That's when they might search for. So all those terms go here and your tags so they can find you. Okay. And then the description is the same one. I just riffed off for you right here. Perfect. Good, good. Okay. So then we have some time. Yes we do. Let's talk about quickly the, yes, I'm trying to get prepared for Tuesday. I just created the longest solo episode that I've ever done. I've not published it yet because I want it to be able to forward people to this new group that I just created. So it is all of the things that I think that would be so, so helpful that they can do now, even when we're all shut down.
And whenever, when this hold shelter, animals, the thing that is lifted, all of the best secrets that I have for marketing. Okay. And just listed them out and have described each one. And I did the podcast on it. I just wrote my show notes. Could I condense those down and make that like amazing recession, proof marketing plan for photographers or something like that and make that or not even recession-proof it could just be like my top five, actually. It's more like 12 and have that as the freebie that whenever someone pops on and they click on. Cause I have on my website, I've got an area for photographers. So when they click on that, do you think a popup would be good or? Yes. I love popups are great love popups. I'm just trying to think it has to be so more juicy than names.
So it's something like 12 marketing secrets that grew my business 30% or right. Like why do they care? Cause everyone's like, here's the marketing, right? So they're like, what's the result. So could we say something like, is there a tangible result that you think you got destiny when you put these five things into play? For example, I just came up with an episode and I'm like, instead of just saying five Pinterest hacks, I said five Pinterest hacks that bring me 78% of my website, traffic. Yeah. I saw that it's blown up because the titles, everything. So what do you think, is there a result you can tie to these 12 secrets? Absolutely. I had more bookings, better quality clients and more money. Can we say how much, how much more do you think? Has it like estimated, was there 50% growth? Was there 60% even?
I would say I made it. Some of these things, there are everything. I mean it's maybe even 70%. I don't know. It's a lot. I mean, because if you just sit on a log and you do nothing, you do, you get nothing. Sure. If you market these things and endless. And so I think, yeah. Then let's say this, let's say 12 marketing secrets that increased my photography business at least 50%. Okay. Or increase your photography business by 50% with these 12 marketing secrets. That sounds good. And that's what you title your podcast too. Okay. Yes. Yep. And then I want you to also right now, destiny, how you get a bunch of people to come listen to your show right now. Can you also create some episodes about, so you have that one that's like increase photography business 50% with these 12 marketing secrets. Next one is, can you take a photography business, virtual?
That's a question. And that's your title? Can you take a photography business virtual? And it's you, maybe you and an expert, maybe just you, but talking about what can they do right now to keep making money? What can they do virtually if anything, and it's like this open conversation or this like Q and a type like, okay, can we even do this? What are some options for us? So that would be an episode that I think you need right next after your 12 marketing secrets. Perfect. Let me think if there's another one that's like highly pertinent right now. How about thinking about, okay. There are ways that they can get the back office stuff set up, right? Oh, I know three things you must do now while businesses slow or yeah. Business. Slow question, Mark. Three things you should be doing there. It is business.
Slow question, Mark. Three things you should be doing. And when I think of that, what do I think of? I think of, Hey, now's the time? Get all your back office stuff set up. Let's teach you some systems. Let's do a mindset, exercise. Third. We're going to go through and make a whole client roster. And we're going to call and email every client and just see if they're doing okay. We're not going to pitch business, going to continue relationship building. Perfect. So that will different are all within the same different episodes. Anytime you can split an episode and make it smaller and more digestible. And then even a continuation is always great too. Like we're going through the recession series guys. Like I'm talking today about what I said next week. We're going to talk. Cause now they're like, Ooh, I'm going to subscribe. So I want to miss next week's episode when destiny talks about what three things I have to be doing.
If businesses slow, I want to know what that is. Okay. Let me think. There was one other thing that came through that I was thinking maybe another one that would be really good in the next couple of months would be, did you know, you could automate parts of your photography business question Mark, and then four things you should be outsourcing. And I'm just making up the numbers. Maybe it's three or two or five, but blink things you can be outsourcing. Another one is why you're struggling to get clients or when to raise your prices for photographers. Like all of those things are things that are coming up. So anyway, I would work on that type of stuff. Cause it's juicy. The titles are very clickable, but starting with the things that they're facing right now, right now they're terrified their business is going under. They're being canceled on left and right, they are down to zero income.
Can they still make money at this business? Should they quit? What can they do while they're sitting around twiddling their thumbs? Can they still grow a client base without actually doing the work? They're scared about how long this is going to last. Anything you have in your arsenal to make those fears go away. Destiny is a must right now. Okay. That's good. Excellent. I'm so excited. I can't wait. I hope you loved that clarity coaching podcasting session with destiny and learned a lot. And I just wanted to thank you guys so much for being part of my community.
