Building on last month’s new outreach approach, we contacted 4,621 prospects at publications, agencies, and brands, which resulted in 166 replies, 33 meaningful conversations, 15 capabilities phone calls, and 6 project proposals. I also researched and added 154 new prospects to the Wonderful Machine database.
A few highlights from our connections include:
I have a project coming up that I might need a photographer for! We will be traveling to New Orleans and then Nashville to shoot a campaign. Would you happen to represent any local photographers? Ideally, the photographer has experience shooting Menswear and for social platforms, attached is a mood board of the type of shots we intend to get. Let me know your thoughts – happy to jump on a call and discuss : )
– Producer at Annex88
Hi Julia, Thanks for reaching out. Actually we use Wonderful Machine photographers quite a bit. Our photo editor checks there first when assigning shoots across the country.
– Creative Director at Manifest
Hi Julia, Thanks for reaching out. I’m familiar with Wonderful Machine and your services, I use the site all the time to find photographers! I’ll let you know if anything comes up.
– Art Producer at Colle McVoy
Executive Producer Jess Dudley and I led 15 capabilities phone calls in May, talking with various prospects about the Wonderful Machine photographer network, our stock request service, and our production capabilities. These calls included clients such as McGarryBowen, Spawn Ideas, The 88, HDR Architecture, BOND Agency, Argonaut, Conscious Media, and Mercer Creative Group – the list goes on!
I am excited to continue outreach in June and looking forward to scheduling in-person meetings and portfolio events.
