Photographer + Facilitation Shadow

April 12, 2019 – April 19, 2019
Through (and against) the window of the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption.

How might we...

  • How might we support collaboration practitioners?
    • What are the business models for supporting collaboration practitioners?

Hypothesis

Packaging my offerings with photography will enable me to offer something impactful, but non-traditional with minimal cultivation overhead.

Design

  1. Write up offerings
  2. Send to initial list of 56 people
  3. See if there any takers

Metrics

Number of takers + feedback

Learnings

6 inquiries, including one within five minutes of sending the initial email. First gig happened last week. There was a possibility for this week that would have required travel, and it fell through in the end. One inquiry for next week.

In addition to the inquiries, 9 people responded to the email, mostly sending support and mentioning possible opportunities and partnership. 2 were of the “not interested / relevant” type.

15 responses / 56 invitations => 27% response rate

At least among my colleagues, there’s a market for having me in the room / providing design coaching. Packaging this up with photography made it much easier to sell. I feel good that the design / facilitation shadowing was a big part of the appeal of the package based on the conversations I had with folks.

I may need to adjust pricing based on demand. Will continue to monitor.

Decisions

Send a followup email to initial invitees summarizing results, inviting other inquiries.

Craft a new invitation that’s more easily shareable with folks who don’t already know me.

Monitor demand / pricing.

Questions

How should I handle IP?
