Best Open Mic Crew cast ever.... ? Executive review Thurs 26 Jan 4pm EST


We had a tonne of people on this Open Mic crew cast smoothly led by Ben Marcum.

Mike Schacht gave some awesome insights and advice into pricing and pitching for group headshots, thank god these crewcasts get recorded as the information being dished out was gold.

If this had been a headshot shoot, and you'd got a Shabang'n shot, you could say stop the shoot, we ain't beating that. This was one of those moments.... Thanks Suzanne Covert for the question.

Alaina gave us insight on how she uses cookies in her marketing... and we got to get a tour of her studio.

And some discussion about Slate Headshots.. 7 seconds moving headshots for actors..

Oh and Jason Ranalli said on camera that he would make Associate by the deadline of Tuesday June 27th !

Re: Alaina's cookie delivery idea...when I worked as a Marketing Manager @ Nextel Communications, our sales reps had excellent success getting their foot/feet in the door delivering donuts.

We printed up Nextel donut boxes and partnered with local donut retailers such as Krispy Kreme, Dunkin Donuts etc. Tax Day is an excellent day for donut deliveries (Monday, April 15):

We used this company and printed Nextel-branded donut boxes:
