  Wendi SpiessThe best way to authentically engage is by providing knowledge that persistently keeps the photo creativity conversation going, while always leading to a sale. It takes a deft touch to create a win-win between retailer and customer, but if you can accomplish the delicate balance, this type of content can do a lot of heavy lifting as far as sales conversion (as high as 10-25%) and long-term loyalty (priceless).  We'll get into specific examples of learning, usage, and creativity content, driven by a proactive and strategic editorial calendar, with much of it executable by independent retailers with limited budgets.
