Welcome to episode 126. My name is Scott Wyden Kivowitz. And today I want to share a story with you. And it's one that I hope that everybody learns a lesson from now. This lesson goes beyond marketing. It is marketing. It is customer service. It is logistics. It is operations. Yeah, there's a variety. It is technology. We as photographers, we may not have all of the things in place of what you'll hear in the story. We may not need everything like what this company had to do in this story, but still there's a lesson to be learned here in a variety of ways. So here's the story. My family, we have never ordered from Jersey Mike's subs, even though we live in New Jersey and Jersey. Mike subs originated in New Jersey. We have never ordered from Jersey Mike subs because we like to support local businesses before we go to a chain.
And now Jersey Mike subs is an international chain. So we seriously never ordered from there before, which I think is a little, little silly, but, you know it just is what it is. So I am recording this on April 1st, but yesterday, which was March 31st, 2021, they were doing Jersey. Mike subs was doing a massive campaign all across the United States where they were donating 100% of their proceeds to charities like the Make-A-Wish foundation. And of course we felt like, like Mo many people did, you know, now's a good time to order from Jersey Mike subs. Let's let's place an order. Let's pick it up and let's have a, you know, a decent meal for dinner. And at the same time, we're donating $40 or so to to, to charity to a really good charity. Now that's not a lot of money, of course, but when you combine thousands and thousands of other families across the country doing the same thing as us, that's a lot of money donated to a really good charity.
So we figured that we would order from there, their campaign, the press release for this, the announcements for this, that it was two years in the making. I've shared this story with others. And there's been people who have come back and said that two years in the making was one year because of COVID that they did not have this event the pr

What we discuss:

How we went from photographing hundreds of events through the year to giving away free headshots to anyone who had to start job hunting because of being laid off
Giving more of our time to non-profits, be it discounted pricing or outright free work to the smaller ones
Focusing more on client user experience and how we could help them through the pandemic, as opposed to just sitting around and waiting for life to return to "normal"
Working with up and coming Photojournalists and photographers on how to come out of the pandemic stronger and more focused
What would you tell other photographers in your situation?
Is there something you do for your health mentally, physically, or a combination, to cope with the stress that comes out of the pandemic?
