As we approach the end of the year, our client outreach team — consisting of Suzanne, Gina, Marianne, Julie, Denise, Laura, Bryan, and Craig — has been busy making connections and updating records in our extensive database. This month, we also added Certified B Corporations (B Corps) as a separate type of company in our client search functionality.
During the month of November, our regular outreach efforts slowed down a bit but our team updated 858 company records and added 90 new companies to our extensive database. They updated the records of 391 individuals and added 407 new individual records. We sent out a total of 390 emails and continue to connect with clients about their upcoming projects.
Julie connected with the visual director of Columbus, O.H.-based Ologie, a branding and marketing agency that focuses on purpose-driven brands. Their director mentioned to Bill that they regularly use the Wonderful Machine site to find photographers but the hiring process is ultimately up to their clients. “We do use the site to see if there are any photographers that shoot a certain style or genre we like (and we have found a few along the way!),” she said. This month, Julie also touched base with the director of communications for USA Swimming who said they would keep our information on file if any needs arise.
Producers Craig Oppenheimer and Bryan Sheffield coordinated two productions for an oil and gas company, one in Madrid with photographer Biniam Ghezai and another in Mumbai with photographer Kedar Malegaonkar. They are also currently producing a shoot for a utility company with Brentwood, M.D.-based photographer Kea Dupree.
