Sponsored Post: Sticky Albums Puts A Word-Of-Mouth Machine In Your Clients' Pockets
Who leaves the house with a bulky album of pictures to show off? No one. But everyone leaves the house with their phone. What if your clients brought a session album with them everywhere they went--Starbucks, dinner with friends, the YMCA soccer game--and showed it to everyone they knew? Can you imagine the potential word-of-mouth referrals? Toting an album around is obviously not practical, but with StickyAlbums you can get the same results. Use your clients' technology to your advantage by giving each of them a customized, branded album they will be thrilled to carry in their pocket. What is StickyAlbums? StickyAlbums is an easy-to-use tool that lets you create personalized mobile apps with images, video and music for each of your clients. You can add your branding, contact information, and special promotions. Built-in social media features make it easy for clients to share your work and because they can be saved offline, no internet connection is necessary to share. Is it effective? Absolutely! Professional photographers from all areas of the industry, from baby photography to boudoir, are benefiting from StickyAlbums. Â Whether you use them as an incentive to make a larger sale or as a surprise to thank a client for choosing you, StickyAlbums will help you exceed your clients' expectations and get them sharing your work. "I love to send my clients a StickyAlbum of their favorite session images - it keeps my brand fresh in their minds any time they open their app, and I love being able to give them something they can't find in the regular consumer market." - Megan Moore (MeganJane Photography & Sarah & Meg) How much does it cost? StickyAlbums offers an unprecedented guarantee that its product will help double your referrals in six months. Â With an annual plan, you can start offering StickyAlbums for less than $19 a month. (They also offer a free 14-day trial.) Â At these prices, the albums will pay for themselves after one referral. How much is one referral worth to you?
One of the great things about running your own business is that, in theory, us business owners get to “call the shots”. We make all the decisions big and small, such as whether we run our business full or part-time, how and why we set our price points, the products we offer, our ideal clients, the list goes on.
As a photographer based in Charleston, SC, summer is my busiest time of the year. So instead of vacationing elsewhere, I like to escape in my own city for a few days at a time. Given that Charleston won the 2016 “World’s Best City” award by Travel & Leisure, after being a top city for the past four years, there’s plenty to see and do and see as a guest in my own city!
