After a slightly extended holiday break — thanks to the New Year falling on a Wednesday — we got right back to work and made some serious progress to begin the new decade. Not only did we forge connections with new clients, we also helped a number of our member photographers obtain lucrative assignments.
Our Client Outreach team — consisting of Julia, Bryan, Nadia, Jemma (featured above), Carol, and Natalia — sent out 807 emails to prospective clients and received 55 meaningful replies. Those connections resulted in seven phone calls that we used to promote member photographers. In addition, we added 354 people and 133 companies to our client database.
Below are some of the successes we celebrated this month:
While the new year is generally a time for rebirth and optimism, we did learn this month that Photo District News is ceasing to create new content. This company has been an institution in the commercial photography industry since 1980, and its contributions will be missed.
