This week, we talk to Darty Hines, co-owner of SYNC, Senior & Youth National Conference (See Below for a Discount Code). Both Kia & Matt attended Darty’s classes back when they were first starting their businesses. Darty has been in the industry for 25 years. 15 years ago, he was known for doing cool sets with high school seniors. In more recent years, he’s known for social media marketing education. What’s working right now for Darty, is listening to his clients. He says we’re quick to jump on a trend, without asking if that’s what our clients want. Darty uses Survey monkey to find one or two things to really make the experience better the next time. Darty and his wife Michelle are fired up about the hope in the industry right now. Listen in to hear the best advice Darty ever got, including “The next person to speak, loses.” and “The last dollar spent is the most important one.” and how he implements this advice. Darty also talks about not getting on FB first thing in the morning and bookmarking groups so you don’t get distracted by your timeline. Darty says to remember to post something uplifting and positive. That is just a few of the tips from this interview. Listen in for all the knowledge that Darty handed out.

And it was originally senior and youth national conference and it is a actually right now my favorite conference to go to every year. Uh, I love photographing high school seniors and spending time with photographers that have been in it for awhile or are very, uh, are new, but they're very committed to their photography business and Darty and his wife Michelle run that has a social and media marketing expertise with his multiple businesses and he lives in Pennsylvania and I know Darty from when he won. The senior photographers have senior photographer of the year nationally. Um, I don't know how many years ago that was, but I was very impressed with him and actually I just thought of this, my first class that I ever attended for photographers to you were there and I wasn't even a photographer yet at the time.

Matt: 01:38 So the first class I ever attended and the industry was Darty and Coleen's a three day jumpstart class before imaging like 11 years ago. So we had just gotten to the industry, we're in there maybe like three months and using like our startup money to figure out what we're doing. And we're like well we need to go to imaging. And I was like, well we should do these econ classes so we can go there as long as possible. And so I signed up for three days with you guys and you were the, you were the first real, like you were the fundamental building block of our business because like you set us on a course and those three days to do what we're doing now, which is really cool. Darty: 02:15 Oh man, this is a great way to start off my week.
