Pinup Photographer Gets Creative with Facetime Sessions

"My name's Aaron Riddle. I live in Temple Texas mice. I turned full-time GIG is called. Lonestar pinup and I was last featured on episode one. Forty Seven I. I got into photography as a hobby. Because I I really love the styles of the nineteen twenty s through the nineteen sixties Everything from flappers to movie star Glamor shots to Maud. Miniskirts and I wanted to try and recreate some of the Classic Nineteen Forties and fifties and illustrations through photography. I originally went to school for graphic design and I did that professionally and freelance. For several years I gain proficiency in photo retouching image manipulation and I did work for other photographers in studios as well as personal projects before I decided to invest in my own camera and equipment and dive into the world of photography. So my studio hasn't changed a whole lot in the few years since our last episode I'm still booking plans regularly even though the photography businesses cyclical. So there's always gonNA be. Slower periods are advertising strategy is pretty consistent. We mainly focus on targeted ads on Google facebook and instagram. To women in the general possibly they have a life event coming up like an anniversary or birthday. I will run. Specials attract new clients and add context to our email database and we have a new and improved website since last time. So that's much easier to navigate and for us to update and are a lot of our clients have really responded positively to that one of our biggest challenges is having the time to keep up with social media as it's evolving. It's when you have fifty seven things to do as the business owner And that kind of thing can get pushed to the wayside. Since I've been unable to see plants in the studio for the past several weeks. Due to the run of virus shutdowns. I actually had a lot more time to post on online. And we've been promoting our solution to that problem of the social distancing which are digital sessions. So we are now offering photo shoots over facetime which has been a fun way to keep in touch with our clients and make a little money and keep everyone safe so I had never heard of this before a client messaged me and said Hey. Have you heard of this And I was I hadn't so I And I don't use facetime on a whole lot in my whole life so I did a call with my assistant and figured it out because like I also looked online. Couldn't find a lot of information on this. I mean I saw that. Maybe some people were doing it but there is no no real information beyond that on the technical aspects it so we kind of did a trial run with her and so there is in the bottom right corner of your facetime all. There's this little white button and that allows you to take a live photo like if you if you have an iphone. You're familiar with live photos ready. It's basically a short little video clip So we're able to taking the photos during their session and editing. Those and the fun part about it is that we didn't have before is it actually allows us to incorporate that video with the photos because if they come in for a photo shoot. We're not shooting video but like this way we can kind of put it together and like a little slide show with the photos and the video so it's been fun. Different and people are fascinated by it because they don't understand how that works in like why. Why would that be good? Or why would that be what I want? And then when they do it. They're like that was really cool like a second home and that was fun and I haven't put on makeup in a month but you know that was a thing to get motivated today so it's not really really done. If someone wanted to follow in my footsteps I would say to find a niche and to excel in that so there are a lot of photographers but there are a lot of thin appetizers and there are even fewer of those who are exceptional. So if pinup photography happens to be your thing then do your research because all the little details count out to finish product that really stand out. I thought this was just an incredibly interesting adaptation strategy. I create ahrends advice in terms of you know if somebody wants to follow in her footsteps. They need to specialize because there are so many photographers there. Not a lot of pinup photographers. So that is good advice. Good Classic Advice. What I think is is modern. So interesting is this transition to doing. Facetime photo sessions. Which as I said I'd never heard of before but there is clearly demand for it and in some ways it's easier for both Aaron the photographer and for the client perhaps. So there's all kinds of ways that you can adapt. There's all kinds of ways that you can modify or if you can't adapt and modify the existing service that you provide. Maybe there is some related service or something that uses a similar skill. Set that you can do during a time in which it's not business as usual and you can't just do your normal thing so aren for inspiring me. I was like wow. That's pretty cool. I I had no idea so. Thanks for sharing your story inspiring me and hopefully our listeners as well listeners. Twenty twenty is our year of the pandemic. Wait that's not right. Oh it's the urban interaction that's better arguer have interaction if you have a question if you'd like to update us about your side-hustle how're you doing out there?

"E. N. T. For the betterment of you what's up my friends so glad you're here. This is Chris go about your host of sottile school all year. Long Twenty twenty. This is the year of interaction taking questions tempting to give some sort of answer but also hearing updates from our listeners who are starting projects doing all kinds of fun stuff. All across the United States Canada North America and beyond We've got a worldwide audience of just wonderful people out there and I'm fortunate to make this show. So thank you. That's all I to say by way of introduction. Just wanted to say. Thank you for listening. Today's listener wants to make an APP but needs some help knowing where to start. I'm going to give him three different paths to consider none of which involve becoming a programmer. Also point out something that most nontechnical people totally forget about when it comes to making an APP or otherwise doing something that requires specific coding skills. I've this problem crop up time and time again and it makes sense that someone might overlook it but it's important not to so if you're interested in making an APP or otherwise doing something high tech and you're not a technical person which I'm not really either Then you might want to listen to this answer. Alright let's jump in Chris. This is Mark Wilkins from Dallas Texas. And I've listened to the show since episode one. I'm thinking about starting a side hustle degrade smartphone APP. You have any tips for how to put together a development team and funding and concerned about sharing the idea with others. Because that's all it is an idea that could be used to create a competing product. Can't wait to hear from you and thanks very much mark. What's up? Thank you so much for listening. Dallas Texas is definitely GONNA be on my list for the spring tour coming in. Just what is it two months or so? I can't believe it off to go back and do some work on that as soon as I finish recording the answer right so a lot of stuff to talk about here Let's let's assume first that mark is not a developer otherwise he might already know what to do and his next steps would likely be quite different. And that's because the best answer isn't Marco and study programming four years. Go get a degree in software engineering or whatever like obviously that's not the best approach most likely in this case. Mark is the one with a good idea. Let's assume further since we're making assumptions that it is a good idea. It's a great idea. And He needs help bring his vision to life. So this point. He has a few options and by the way mark. I know you also ask about your concern of sharing the idea because it could be used a credit competing product. I don't WANNA say. That's not a valid concern. I tend to think that much greater concern is how you actually going to make this product. How are you going to make this APP? Because right now no one has made it okay so technically if you talk to people about the product you could ask them to sign an NDA beforehand. But I think for a lot of stuff unless you are sitting on you know I truly billion dollar idea or whatever. I don't think you need to worry about that okay. So let's focus on the practical aspect of. How do you bring this vision to life? So Mark's got three options here first of all he could outsource and this might be simplest option. He GOES UPWARD DOT COM. He GOES TO FIBER DOT COM. Maybe even somewhere like craigslist or maybe a local university or some other source. If he's in a different part of the world not in Texas there could be some different networks but upward dot com is usually where I sent people I in a situation where he could hire someone to help him with the technical part of the APP. Making that's option number one option number two. We could partner up all right. He mentioned something about looking for a team. You know so. In this case he brings his idea to a developer who is in search of an idea and they team up and go on to make millions but say which is not totally unheard of. Here's an example episode. Six twenty seven. I really liked this story about a rehearsal APP for actors that earns half a million dollars and that was a while back so maybe by now it's actually a million or more if you want to learn the back story that one again. It's episode six to seven. Another third option is private label. Okay which is a bit like outsourcing but instead of completely customizable solution where he's hiring a developer to build this from scratch he chooses a company or a platform that allows you to use an existing template essentially Rachelle to make his own. There's a number of companies that do this now in a couple of them up in the show notes page on the one hand. This doesn't sound great because he may have to accept some constraints and limitations that don't allow his apt to be as great as it could be on the other hand. It's going to be a lot cheaper first of all and it might be easier as well. Let's talk about transfer wise the smartest way to send and receive money internationally. If you have ever had to move money across borders chances are you were haunted by hidden fees whether you use your bank or another provider. They'd likely hit an extra fee in the exchange rate. And you pay too much and if you didn't notice well that's the whole point. Transfer wise is different. You always get the real rate when you send over seventy countries or when you convert currencies using their multi-currency account. You pay one super low fee and keep more of your money over. Six MILLION. Customers are already saving with transfer wise. Try them today and get your first transfer free by visiting transfer wise dot com slash podcast..

Markman yellows days are spent transforming Hollywood actors into monsters and mythical beings. There was the chance to turn his daughter into a mermaid that sparked his idea for a side hustle. Mark was working on the Adam Sandler film bedtime stories and needed to craft a life size. Mermaid tail for Keri Russell. So he put together a mold and created one out of latex phone before he used it onset, though. Mark Sean opportunity to make his little mermaid obsessed five year old daughters day, he brought her onset and let her try on the tail for herself needless to say, she absolutely loved it and spent the next week asking Mark if he could make one for her to have it home market and have a Hollywood budget of his own. So he made a simpler version out of sheet foam, he sourced at a local fabric store everyday. His daughter would put on the little mermaid slide into her tail and spend the next hour so flipping and calling to her heart's content side, though. That's what happens do they flip and caulk and a mermaid is part dolphin part. Okay. Let's keep going. It wasn't long before marks other daughters wanted to tale of their own which of course needed to beat unique more his daughters worthy tales, the more questions. They began to ask where in the ocean damore mates live. Do they have any special powers and do all crabs have a Jamaican accent? Of course, mon- he said, so Mark regale them with stories about who the mermaids word and their lives beneath the waves. Improvising. As he went the more the stories and characters develop the more Mark saw commercial potential, and what he was doing his daughter wasn't the only one who love Ariel and Sebastian. So he began looking at how he could do this at scale Mark brainstormed, a number of ideas, eventually settled on turning the Finns into mermaid sleeping backs this tied in perfectly with the stories as he could create story books to accompany the backs it felt like the perfect kid friendly product. And of course, it would be marketed to their parents since they had the money he created three realm or mates in total Lucian toss Ian, kalani who each had their own realm. Storyline into. Zayn within the fictional world of Yana. He called the company in channels market, his wife trista designed to the sleeping bags themselves. They wanted to keep credit control and ensure the final design was true to the vision. They used actual sealife to inform much of it as well as taking influences from the different fictional and non fictional regions. Where the mermaid slip. They also wanted to ensure the stories and sleeping bags intertwined as much as possible. The elements of the story to inform that design, for example, each mermaids special power causes her tail to glow. So the sleeping bags us glow in the dark threat. Although the initial design phase was simple turning the concept art into a final product was not to bring the expensive world and intricate designs to life Marquis to license that role in products. He had built create unique artwork for each character design. Make prototypes of each sleeping bag generate marketing materials for each of them. And so on and a lot of that had to be outsourced to companies and freelancers, it was quite the process. Unlike many ecommerce businesses, Mark decided he wouldn't begin selling the sleeping bags directly to consumers from his website at least not at first because he had enough complexity going on instead, he chose the wholesale route and work with companies like QVC Macy's and bed bath and beyond this required. A lot about from production. But then enabled him to sell in Chantelle products without needing to be there at the point of purchase and it fit much better around his day. John, Mark, Leonard wholesale contracts with four out of five companies he pitched to the first sale went to QBC who purchased eighteen hundred units of the products these retail at the official price of a hundred fifty dollar. But are often sold at ninety nine dollars. Thanks to the third party marketing efforts of the companies he was working with Martin have to think too much about selling himself. However, he's recently started trying to sell direct to consumer through the enchanted website to increase the number of orders and diversify where they come from. This is meant toying around with social media and content marketing, although it's too early to tell the direct impact since launching enchant channels has sold thousands of units. And Mark says they're just getting started at this point, most of the profits. Go back into the company to help them grow their current product range he wants to expand from three to twelve different realms his mermaids. He's also working on a concept for TV show Gooding all of his characters that you would like to pitch to Amazon or Netflix as an original series. But for now,

Jordan Meyer now runs the digital marketing agency granular to sixteen team based in Milwaukee Wisconsin, and these days it's his fulltime job and a multimillion dollar agency. But like most of our stories it didn't start out that way before building this digital marketing. Behemoth Jordan was holding down a job at the best buy head office in Minneapolis. He climb the corporate ladder for a while before realizing there was no end in sight, he then transitioned into the for profit higher education industry, but felt like he was selling his soul to the highest bidder. While making someone else a lot of money. It was around this time Jordan decided to put his PPC skills to work. Whoa. PPC? What does that mean? Hold on PPC or pay per click is an internet marketing model where advertisers pay a fee each time. One of their ads is clicked you know, when you do a Google search for something at the top of the screen, you see those ads those Jordan's ads. Well, maybe they're not Jordan specifically, but those are someone's ads it's a way for business. The owners to buy traffic to their site. If his talents were already helping someone else's business or in a lot of money. Why not apply those same talents and build something of his own? So he started freelancing on the side as Google Edwards paid social media and analytics consultant for businesses around the country he based out of his house specifically his living room recliner, Jordan worked on campaigns late into the night after getting home from his corporate job. You would also go and sit in his car during his lunch break to make calls. He ran the hustle this way the first two years he's never had to cold call anyone telling us that his work in a high profile corporation like best buy gave him all the authority. He needed to easily attract small businesses. In fact, the only site he could think of that yielded him a client in the past was Craigslist. He found a company they're looking for a PPC consultant reached out to them and won their business. It wasn't until a few years end that he explore the option of quitting his day job. Jordan had grown diminishing ten clients by himself, which he admits was too many while working fifty hours a week in the corporate role encouraged by one of his. Clients to take the leap, and then sweetening the deal by offering up their office to work out for free, Jordan left his corporate marketing job and returned home to his native Milwaukee. He then officially started granular digital marketing agency. Y'all so hired his first employee while working out of that client's office at the time. He hired his second employee six months later, he knew it was time to get his own space. He took another leap and got a twenty five hundred square foot office, the three of them to work out of in downtown Milwaukee. One of the ways Jordan grew granular was to waterfall his client load. This was interesting. He hired that I employ out of necessity since he was over the limit of clients he could handle by himself. So he would load up the new employees with clients until that person overflowed before hiring the second employees, then he would repeat the process until growing his team to its current number of sixteen people. In other words, he's only hiring people when he sure this worked for them. Granular currently serves seventy five clients in Jordan tries to remain cognizant of his team's workload. He never wants anyone to be spread too thin. So let's talk about the money. Start up costs were virtually nothing in the beginning. He worked from home. Yes. He had that recliner, but he already owned that. And then even the first office space. He held for six months was rent-free Jordan said being frugal and growing only from the Cesky really helped him succeed bootstrap is operation from zero. It helped to not blow money on a large office in marketing like he saw there's doing annual profits from granular currently total around two million dollars per year. However, unlike typical agencies who charge a percentage of adspend or a markup just one of the things Jordan doesn't like doing he charges more like a consultant by blocks of hours the pricing varies, but he usually has a monthly minimum fifteen hundred dollar agency consulting fee for about nine hours of work. And then his hourly rate is two hundred dollars per hour for his enterprise clients that figure could extend over a hundred hours a month with a multipurpose. Team working on their account. So what's next he wants to continue building granular along with helping other companies grow wherever he sees an opportunity you'd also like to build wealth outside of his business to real estate and other investments.

"So this kind of content marketing project is going to take time. It's definitely not going to be an overnight success. It is the kind of project that has potential to do. Well over time. If you really love the process just like he did in the story. And if you really choose the right topic in the first place, not that matters quite a bit too. And bobby's advice, he said, I picked the topic of guitars because it's just something I liked I advise doing a lot of research up front that way you can get started. You can be confident about the monetary value of your topic. So some topics are definitely going to be easier than others. I always suggest choosing a topic where it's impossible to pursue that hobby or that activity, whatever it is without spending money. So I was thinking about episode five hundred of the show we did long ago, married. Couple goes from crash drone to soaring site us all this is a guy who together with his wife had built this business. Multiple six figure business now. In fact, I think it may actually be a million dollar business all about drone reviews and education, and he also started as an affiliate if I'm not mistaken, and then eventually started creating his own courses and has really built that out. If you think about it if you want if you're interested in drones, you wanna go and have a drone to do Petach fear or whatever else there's no way to participate in that hobby without spending money. In fact, a lot of the hubby consists of reading about different drones different equipment and accessories, and you know, all this kind of stuff. So if you want to go down this road, you know, first of all choose something that you're actively interested in not just doing it because you hope it will make money one day, although that's good too. But there's a lot of work involves so it helps to like the process, and then also make sure the topic shoes is connected in some form to something that people pay for it. Because if you want to have both things, you know, you're passionate your money, but needs to be that connection. All right. That's my encouragement for you today. Thanks so much Bobby for letting us take a look at guitar shock when a link that up in the show notes along with anything else that I mentioned those notes are at sottile school dot com slash eight three nine episode eight hundred thirty nine up you enjoy this win and much more is on the way.

"Remember at your first, sinus idea, very, well may not be what you end up with for the rest of your life or even for the next few weeks or months or a year. But if you don't pursue one idea, you'll never get to whatever is waiting beyond that one. Because again, it's the process of implementation execution illumination as people discover the project, or is they, you know, your users common begin to show you what they like. And what they don't like. So it's not just about asking people, you know, you can ask people for their opinion. But more than just listening to what people tell you you can pay attention to what they do. And that really gives you the information. So in this case report paid attention and realized that people are really looking for this roommate slash housemate matching service, and he just went with the slog of building his original idea really trying to focus on that rental property situation.

"Assistant bookkeeper and marketer drawing. Others into the dream of hotel et from customers to contractors has been a lot more rewarding and selling copiers or flipping houses. So it takes a long term vision to start this kind of project. Definitely not the kind of thing that's going to be profitable right away require some investment requires some time, I also benefits from having more than one property. I think he was wise to think from the beginning chemist start in Nashville, but I'm not gonna in there. I'm going to take what I've learned. And then apply it in Austin in Dallas cetera wherever I can go. I also think this story illustrates really, well, you know, the gap between x and y okay. So Xs like something that's been around for a while. Why something that's new in? This case Airbnb has tremendous and lots of ways for lots of people. But inevitably it's not for everyone. So whenever something like that takes off the road of home, sharing home rentals, etc. It often creates a digital opportunities in the margins for people like Alison to flourish. So even though she's trying to do her own thing. You know, she's using the platforms of Airbnb and others. The other ones that I mentioned VR be oh home away at cetera. And arguably you could say they have enabled her to pursue this alternative vision. A lot of people might not be comfortable looking into boutique hotel like this. Were it not for the fact that Airbnb and similar platforms have kind of normalized that process, so pay attention margins. Do you notice what is the gap between x and y could be some other industry could be something. You're familiar with in your own worker career industry or something entirely new who knows but they're always going to be lots of opportunities. That's what this show is all about holidays opportunities giving you ideas, and perhaps giving you a gentle nudge to move forward inspiration as guide but inspiration with action is better today's show notes, including links to Allison's properties all the different platforms.

"Awesome. Well, it sounds like a relief practical personal problem that a lot of women have. So I'm glad that Tracy is addressing it. And it does seem like the kind of product I was poking around on their website. It does seem like the kind of product that would really benefit from a lot of attention or like a major crowdfunding campaign or perhaps some more extended investment. And you know, if you've been listening to the show for a while, you know, I'm not encouraging people to go out and borrow money or even seek investment because there is so much you can do on your own, and she is obviously developed this as a side hustle together with her husband. So that's fantastic. Of course. But it does seem to me like, this is the thing that should scale and should be just have a lot of attention on it somehow. And so don't quite know about how to go about doing that. Or what the best route is, you know, obviously there lots of different paths avenues there. But since it is such a unique idea. And there wasn't anybody else in this category? She's essentially pioneering in that way. It seems to me that it could be if she wants it to be at least a lot more than a side hustle. It really could become it's. Own brand that takes off and becomes you know, why they known so I look forward to following along. If I get any pilak updates to help pass them onto you our listeners and listeners inspiration is good but inspiration with action is so much better. Is there some practical problem out there that you've got your eye on some frustration some annoyance that could perhaps not only be your own frustration or annoyance, but something that is a hindrance or even a serious problem for lots of other people, and if so what could be a potential solution for that. How could you fix it not only for yourself? But for other people just like Tracy is doing in this story, and like many of the other people in our stories are doing as well.

"Running a membership site isn't like a course or one off programme. It is ever-evolving Ginny experiments with different offerings to see what works best for her members. She has found at the live components like virtual co working and online socials are especially valuable. She's noticed that her members crave that personal connection while traveling. She currently works about ten to twenty hours a week on the membership site and also continues to plan retreats for digital nomad girls each year. With nearly twenty thousand members of the free Facebook community and roughly one hundred and thirty inner circle members income from digital nomad girls is expected to more than triple this year as Denny reflects on the leaf she made to turn her passion project into a business. She is deeply grateful. She says that creating something from scratch that helps people supporting her and her lifestyle and allowing her to learn new skills. His incredible that PHD inorganic chemistry. Feels like a lifetime ago. Well, talk about a gap in the market puts mean, this is huge. It's totally true. That most of the voices in that space, at least traditionally have been male and not just mail, but also, hyper masculine so I mean, it's it's actually a term or a space. I haven't really resonated with much myself. Even though I am effectively the quintessential digital nomad. I've just never used that phrase because I've always been doing my own thing, you know, for many years before this whole phrase and concept was popular. So to the point here, I'm not surprised that she has twenty thousand people in our Facebook group who were looking for a different form of identification, or at least a different kind of rotary support community cetera. So good for her and for all of our listeners out there who are looking for a different perspective in that kind of world. Perhaps you want to check it out. We will of course, Lincoln up and my question for you, as well is, you know, is there something else out there that's dominated by one viewpoint or perspective? But yet a lot of people are interested in it to concept that has value yet for whatever reason the online conversation or offline conversation, whatever it is is dominated by. One viewpoint or perspective. And perhaps a lot of people would resonate with something different. And you think about that? Because I think there's a lot of ideas there. There are a lot of possibilities and opportunities there just as there are so many opportunities and possibilities in our world today and last but not least don't be afraid to make a change.

"This was another example of an interesting product or interesting service, in fact, that I had never thought of before. But once I discovered it and read about it it made perfect sense, right? Newspapers are dying or at least they are transitioning. Let's say because I still read the news pretty frequently. But I don't read it through eighth paper newspaper. So it's only natural that just comics evolved to web comics and classified ads have gone into EBay and other online auctions or Craigslist country other local services, it's just is logical that somebody would come along. And how can we do a better job with obituaries? So well done to Andrew I'm curious to see how this develops in the future. Definitely seems like something that can really grow. And here's a fun fact as well. Speaking of growing business, Andrew went to Manila in the Philippines in January twenty eight on a hunch. The country has a really large Catholic population. And collectively is a colossal social media user one of the biggest in Asia, so many people in the Philippines using Facebook other online platforms. So he figured he'd have a good market, dick. He set up some meetings in advance using Facebook and also just emailing people directly, and he now has offices in full sail. Staff working with thirty five funeral home locations in the Philippines, who use the software. So really smart you consider where might be a good market for my product that I'm not thinking about and for all those reasons the Philippines has indeed been a good market for him. So as we approach the end of the year mine, courage, meant to you is is there something that you're thinking about do you have an idea for a service that could change the world, or at least not change the world, change someone's life. Could it make somebody's life a little bit better? If so perhaps, it could be a side hustle. Thank you so much for listening today.

"Happen. One thing I forgot to mention in the episode. These bolts and bees are also bred to the Minnesota nice. They almost never sting you because that's just rude. Also, if you ever need to borrow a Cup of sugar, or you can just pop over to the hive and say, hey, guys, can I get some help? And they're like, well, you know, we don't have sugar because we're vs that we might have a good substitute. Okay. This is an example of the kind of project that you need to motivation to do aside from just making money like it is fantastic that they're able to make six figures on the beekeeping business. I mean, this is not us, let's go. That's why I'm talking about this stuff because you can make money all kinds of different things. However, I don't think anybody should go into the business simply because they want to get rich if it is just your motivation to get out of debt or make some extra cash, nothing wrong with that. Maybe you want to start an online project instead of being responsible for twenty hives of bees. But, hey, this is the thing. If you're passionate about something, there is a way most likely to connect that to something that is valuable and useful to other people. So well done Travis Kiara. It's a really fun story.
