What is Ad Bootcamp for Photographers?
Designed exclusively for professional photography business owners, ‘Ad Bootcamp’ for Photographers is a BRAND NEW opportunity for those who are ready to step up and take their business growth into their own hands and harness the effectiveness of paid advertising.
Join me, Jess Brookes, in this 6 week online bootcamp especially for professional photographers, where you can learn the ins-and-outs of Facebook and Instagram Advertising. This is an intensive, high-touch group programme, meaning that you will get hands-on help from your own Ads Strategist throughout the entire bootcamp. This experience is unlike any other Ads course/programme/training.

What’s the plan? Carry on as you are? Teach yourself ads from Youtube and Google? Hire an ads manager? Do nothing and hope your ideal audience will be delivered to you by the fairies..?! 😂
Let me tell you, when I was serving clients locally in the early days of my business, I knew that Facebook Ads was going to be my best shot at reaching more people with my message, and I considered and attempted each of the alternative options above. But do you know how far it got me? I spent all my spare time going round in circles with research, and my spare cash outsourcing. In the end, neither option really got me the momentum I wanted (or needed) so I bumbled along and figured I would continue to rely on word-of-mouth, networking and organic marketing. As time went by, I started to see just how lucrative Facebook advertising was for my own clients and I put into practice everything I was able to learn to get results. Eventually I decided that if I was going to take my own marketing seriously, I needed to put my money where my mouth was (so to speak). So I joined some eye-watering expensive trainings where, not only did I fast-track my ads knowledge to transfer to my own clients, but it awoke some exciting ideas and strategies for my own business model. List building, challenges, retargeting, content creation…the strength of success of all the strategies I had attempted in the past, came back to one thing. TRAFFIC. Without quality traffic, who was going to know about my offerings? Fast forward to 2019 and I’m now an ads specialist. Living and breathing Facebook ads, I’m lucky enough to work with some amazing entrepreneurs and small businesses across the world on their ads campaigns and ad strategies. Unfortunately for local businesses, the opportunity to work together is often missed as the management fees don’t justify the size of the audience and therefore the ad spend. Which is why I’ve decided to help small business owners in a different way. Ad Bootcamp for Photographers is my first group coaching bootcamp aimed specifically at photography business owners, and those who serve a specific location or local area.
Ad Bootcamp: more leads, more clients, more customers, more sales, more impact!
Your Qs Answered:
Where will the training be hosted?
The training will be hosted on a secure section of the website, which you will be able to access with your own unique username and password.
How long does the bootcamp last?
From start to finish, the Ad Bootcamp will last a total of 6 weeks.
How much time do I need to commit to the program?
You’ll need to commit 2 – 5 hours per week for the duration of the bootcamp. If course, you don’t need to take in all the training as it’s delivered, however the concept of the bootcamp is that the group goes through the training and exercises together simultaneously. That way, the content can be more responsiveness to the needs of the group.
How long will we be able to access the training?
The content will be available for 6 months – this means that you have access for an additional 20 weeks if you are unable to keep up with or attend the live trainings. Please bear in mind, however, that Facebook often changes its algorithm, policy and features – I will not be able to update training to reflect any changes after the bootcamp has ended.
Will there be a Facebook group for the program?
Of course! You will have access to a private Facebook group as soon as it is open ahead of the bootcamp start date, and where there will be regular Q&A posts related to the trainings, as well as additional live content.
Can I get personalised help with my ads?
I will be available for the entire duration of the bootcamp – both in the Facebook group and via Messenger. There will also be other ad strategists admins in the group, who can answer your queries during the 6 week bootcamp.
I'm not very techy. What if I struggle with the content?
I aim to break down the technical part of the training to simplified instructions. If you still struggle and need additional support, you can book a power hour with me for £95 where we can share screens in a private online meeting, and you can have 90 minutes focussed guidance to get you unstuck.
What happens if I still need help when the bootcamp finishes?
There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and feedback throughout the 6 weeks, but if you are still stuck or need help after the bootcamp ends, you can book 1:1 sessions with me – prices start at £95 for a 90 minute online coaching session.
How much should I spend on Facebook and Instagram ads?
What you are prepared to spend on your ads is entirely up to you. However, I recommend budgeting £10 per day to be able to run ads to build your audiences. The outcome of the conversions will be down to your personal sales skills, however I will give you all the tools and advice you need to be able to reach your ideal prospect.
I've not been a photographer for very long - is this bootcamp right for me?
I recommend that you have your insurance and some experience under your belt before investing in Facebook and Instagram ads. In the early days of business, it is more important to build your portfolio, confidence and reputation organically. Once you have some structure in place and a proven concept, you will be ready to start generating leads using ads.
