Think about it... when you ask questions like "Should I be using TikTok?" or "Is the floral crown trend over?" WHY would you ask a fellow photographer who ISN'T a member of your target audience? They cannot give you the answer that you actually need because they aren't from your region, your client's age, in the life event of your client, and many more reasons. Why not go straight to the source and ask the people that matter most to your business: your target clients.

Stop asking other photographers what you should be asking 

your target market.

Ready to get the answers you need?

After your Focus Groups Intensive, my confidence has skyrocketed because I now have a plan! Everything you covered was insightful but your list of questions to ask was exactly what I needed. I’m most afraid of hosting a focus group, looking like I don’t know what I’m doing, and asking questions that are pointless or that result in a bunch of non-answers.
The questions you provided are brilliant and more than enough to start with."

I’m so grateful to have a plan I’m excited about! Thanks to you, I’ve learned how to learn things I need to know to help me focus on what my clients actually care about. 


"After moving to a new town, I had no idea how to appeal to my new market.

I had tons of questions that I felt, if answered, could help me market my business and set myself apart from the competition. I just knew if I could learn what my target market wanted, I could use that to become THE photographer in my area. After asking countless other photographers and failing at what THEY thought I needed, I decided to go straight to the source: my clients and their friends who DIDN'T hire me.

Scouring photography groups for answers to my questions.

Hosting focus groups has changed my business FOREVER! I have been able to learn exactly what my target market wants from me, how to maximize my online presence, how to stay relevant, and how to attract my target market more than my local competitors. 



The Focus Method

This lesson will help you discover why asking your burning questions to other photographers just doesn't work. We'll dive into the scientific and industry specific process of focus groups and why they are so important to running a successful business.

Lesson #2 is all about the details of the focus group. We'll discuss exactly WHO you will want to invite, WHEN to run your focus groups, and WHERE to host them. A LOT of photographers get these details wrong when they host a focus group and because of those mistakes, it alters the dynamics of the group and can negatively impact the quality of information you gain.

Here's What You'll Learn

Market Research

Who, What, When, & Where



Lesson #4 dives deep into the details behind not only processing the information you gained from your focus group, but how to organize and optimize it so that you can apply it all to your business. There will be some changes and updates that you'll want to make in your business that will actually have to wait and others that you can act on immediately. This lesson will help you know which ones to attack first and how to apply the other kind later.

Processing Positive Changes


This lesson is my absolute favorite because it breaks down the psychology behind what you want to learn from your focus groups. We will dive into over 100 questions to ask in the categories of marketing, art (images and editing), the client experience, and product & service offerings. Each question is specifically crafted to maximize your information that you can learn from your focus group.

The Focus Method offers a DIRECT return on your investment into the course simply because it teaches students how to be more attractive to their target audience, and therefore, receive more inquiries and bookings. And take it from my students... the return has proven to be incredibly high.

I'm Amanda, the pricing & sales expert behind A-list.

I've always operated out of the left side of my brain... the strategies, the formulas, the psychology. It all gets me so freaking hype (nerd alert). Most creatives are right brain dominant and have a hard time with the more business side of things like marketing, money, and systems.

That's where I come in... let me be your left brain.
