During the month of June, we contacted 4,530 prospects at publications, agencies, and brands which resulted in 200 replies, 81 meaningful conversations, 15 capabilities phone calls, 2 project proposals, 2 stock requests, and 2 in-person meetings. I also researched and added 135 new prospects to the Wonderful Machine database.
A few highlights from our connections include :
Hi Julia, We don’t have a need as of now, but I have actually been referring your company to many of my clients one of which is using you for a national Pharmacy shoot. Good stuff!
– Director at Hanlon Creative
Hi Julia, You have impeccable timing! I am, currently and quickly, trying to sketch out a couple of ways to ballpark a client ask. I’ll give you the notion here and maybe we could chat today?
– Creative Director at MCD partners
Hi Julia, [colleague] forwarded me your last email and I wanted to pick up since he’s on the production side. I’ve used Wonderful Machine quite a lot over the last few years and it’s always been a great resource—although I didn’t realize you had a stock division. My last two real people shoots at Prevention used photographers I sourced through you. Glad to have your contact for the future and I’ll keep using you as a resource.
– Photo Director at Hearst Magazines
Hi Julia, We do actually have a project that just landed. We’re mapping out the details and will likely be in touch tomorrow or Friday with logistics to discuss. Thanks!
– Executive Producer at Weber Shandwick
Executive Producers Jess Dudley, Craig Oppenheimer, and I held 15 capabilities calls with clients including CSX, Cargill, McGarryBowen, Somfy, AY Digital, MCD Partners, and Cold Open. We also had two great meetings with Visit Philadelphia and Drexel University, both local clients, and were able to show a few of our member photographer portfolios to showcase local and nationwide work.
Even though summer is in full swing, we’re still cranking away at client outreach talking to clients in-between the trips to the beach and family vacations.
