Spokesmodel 101

Ready to build a senior rep team that is strategically designed, profitable, and well sought-after by every high school senior in your area? I'll show you how.

HOPE TAYLOR COURSES

What if I told you that you could have...

A spokesmodel program that attracted over one hundred applications each year?

-A program structure that was organized, easy to manage and FUN for your entire spokesmodel team (without adding extra stress to your business?)

A group of high school senior girls (and guys!) that supported your business throughout their entire senior year (AND made you more money?)

Access to ALL of my email templates from the entire process - including what to send to parents, how to notify your applicants of who was selected and who wasn't, and more?

Spokesmodels who wanted to use YOU, and ONLY you, as their senior portrait photographer for their entire senior year - and made all of their friends want to work with you, too?

A program that created buzz about your business each and every year, brought you more business and made your more money? 

Creating a spokesmodel program can be overwhelming and intimidating...
But it doesn't have to be.

During my last six years of photographing seniors and my three years with having a spokesmodel program, I have learned A LOT about the right and wrong way to do things.

I don't know exactly where you are in your business right now. Maybe you have a spokesmodel program, but you're frustrated and discouraged with how things are going. Maybe you've always wanted to launch a senior team, but the idea of managing everything overwhelms you and stops you in your tracks. Maybe senior portraits are something that you are passionate about, but you have absolutely no idea where to start. Or, maybe you're ready to take your business to the next level and bring in more income with your portraits this year. 
My goal with this course is to walk you through every little thing you need to know about launching and maintaining a senior spokesmodel program. From the initial application to notifying your team, to all of the events and shoots, all the way through your senior clients graduation...I walk you through it ALL. This process should be exciting, strategic and organized - and you shouldn't have to do it alone.

YES! I WANT TO ENROLL NOW!

(4 lessons)

Now you have a team of local high school seniors to represent you, but you have NO idea where to go next or what to do with them. This is the most jam-packed module that walks you through every single event that I host for my senior spokesmodel team - from shoots to holiday events to slumber parties - and includes behind-the-scenes footage from each and every one! I don't just share how to host them...I share how to make the MOST of each interaction with your team to get the best results and build the most buzz around your business.

In this lesson, I share about other ways to utilize your spokesmodel program to strategically market your business and gain new bookings - even outside of getting direct referrals!

There are SO many ways to utilize your team strategically...you'll be surprised! 

This may be the most POPULAR lesson of this entire course. I sit down with my past and present senior spokesmodels to ask them your burning questions. How are seniors currently using Instagram? What makes them want to apply to a spokesmodel program? Which parts do they like? Which parts do they want to avoid? What makes them willing to invest? This lesson alone has HUNDREDS of dollars of value and content...but it's all included in your one-time course purchase!

WORKSHOP RAVES

“This course is fantastic. I never knew anything about spokesmodel programs until I started following Hope's business. Before this course, I only had a slight idea of what it was all about. After this course, I honestly feel like I'm equipped with absolutely everything I need to start a senior spokesmodel program for my business, like, TOMORROW!! This course is laid out perfectly clear & concise, informational, fun and easy to follow along. You will get everything you need from this course if you're thinking of starting a senior spokesmodel program, I PROMISE! There is nothing like this anywhere else on the market. SO worth it.”

"There is nothing like this anywhere else on the market. SO worth it."

-Danielle Dykes

“Hope is an amazing teacher! She has one of the most successful Senior Spokesmodel Programs in the country, and her structure and program model is a game changer. From the Hope I was able to get my Spokesmodel Program up and running in a brand new city after only being there 2 months.” 

" She has one of the most successful Senior Spokesmodel Programs in the country, and her structure and program model is a game changer"

-Arika Jordan

“Hope's Spokesmodel Course gave me the motivation, tools and education needed to begin a thriving AND PROFITABLE spokesmodel program. Hope dives deep and pulls out her play books to share her experiences and personal failures. With all of this knowledge gained from the course I feel like I'm kicking off a brand new spokesmodel program at year three of business instead of starting from scratch! Hope walks you through EVERYTHING and provides priceless templates. I highly recommend this course to small businesses just starting out and even to seasoned photographers looking to revamp, increase their profits and expand exposure.”

"With all of this knowledge gained from the course I feel like I'm kicking off a brand new spokesmodel program at year three of business instead of starting from scratch!"

- Quianna Marie

“This course was amazing! I learned so much and can't wait to incorporate everything I have learned into my Senior Spokesmodel Program. This course is such a game changer! It showed me what I was doing wrong and why my Senior Spokesmodel Teams have not been so successful in the past. Hope thank you so much for offering this course and sharing all of your secrets to having a successful Spokesmodel team!”

"This course is such a game changer!"

–Hannah Willingham

“Prior to this course, I had always seen Senior Spokesmodel Programs as a daunting addition to my business, and was extremely weary about starting a program from the ground up with no experience in Rep Programs. After going through the Hope Taylor Spokesmodel course I feel at ease and confident about launching this new sector of my business, and I'm so excited to implement a Senior Program within my services! I fully believe that this course will help launch my business to the next level.”

“Before this course I only photographed 8 seniors last year. After taking this course AND THE SENIOR POSING COURSE, I have 20+ seniors scheduled for this summer and fall. For me that means I am completely booked! YAY!

– Taylor

“I’ve grown my team AND applications! My followers have gone up so much because the girls are actually posting about me! I feel that I have this course to thank for that. Id probably be where I am now, years from now without the course. Hope’s course completely turned around my Spokesmodel team! When I first purchased the course, I wasn’t sure if it would affect the success on my team or not. But... I went from having a team of 6 to a team of 20 after taking the course!!! My application numbers sky-rocketed!! I am so confident in my team this year and that is all because of Hope”

-Sarah Grace

“This truly is a step by step breakdown of how to create the best spokesmodel program your area has ever seen. I knew nothing about spokesmodel programs before this course. I wanted to bring a program that no one else in our area has and really shake up the senior market in our city! We've just started our first spokesmodel program and I can already tell that this is going to be something big in our community that seniors will look forward to being a part of for years and years to come.”

–Lindsey Lemons 

“OMG this course is literally the best piece of educational content ever created!! There's SO much value in every lesson and goes into depth and speaks to a photographer at any level which is awesome! Having so much of Hope's opinion built in and examples of exactly what she does, rather than just telling us the guidelines made such a HUGE difference to me!! Hope doesn’t just tell her students what to do, but she explains HOW to do it and gives examples in case her students hit a creative roadblock.  I can feel my confidence growing like it never has before as I go throughout this course! I KNOW that I can create a sought after, well organized team and lead them with confidence to give them a great experience and to grow my business at large! WOW ... I can not say enough about this course!! I have never learned so much!! The way Hope lays out all of her lessons in such detail and how she gives so many examples of what she is teaching is worth every penny!”

“When I think of “senior portraits,” I think of Hope Taylor Photography, so I don’t know a better person to go to for practical, useful information regarding all things seniors!”

“Hope is really great at breaking everything down into tangible, practical information; she packs A LOT into this course, and I know I’ve already benefited greatly from it!!”

“Because of taking this course, I leave my sessions and think “how will I choose my favorite?” Rather than “I hope there’s enough that I like!”

I’m no longer anxious before sessions, frantically scrolling to find inspiration and hoping that one session will turn out as good as the last one.”

My senior experience has COMPLETELY changed! Now, I am actually in charge of the session in choosing locations, outfits, posing, etc. which has brought such confidence to me and to my senior clients.”

“My client’s parents have been so impressed and love watching their daughters leave my sessions excited and confident in the way they felt.”
