The Frame Shop's Grab & Go Collections Are Now Available in the Preveal App!
We're guessing that you're so in love with our frames that you can't wait to get them on your clients' walls. You've already ordered a Show & Sell Kitto illustrate all of the frames' styles and finishes, because you know that, well, you sell what you show. You may have even purchased a Grab & Go Collection to beautifully display sample images in your studio (although we wouldn't blame you if you grabbed an extra collection to hang in your own home). And of course you've prepped your clients for the sales meeting with our guide to Selling A Showpiece Portrait, so they're ready to buy big. The Preveal iPad app is the tool that can bridge the gap between “ooh, we like those,” to “ooh, we need those.” We've sung the praises of Preveal before; their technology puts a “handheld sales room” into the houses and hearts of your clients, allowing them to envision your wall clusters on their own walls. And with lightning speed, Preveal has created our Frame Shop's Grab & Go Collections as a new download from their Community, absolutely free! Now you can have your clients take well composed, properly scaled images of their home's future wall gallery location (for easy-to-use instructions, check out our Preveal Wall Gallery Planner), and drop their images into frames that they can see digitally hanging on their own walls. Mind blowing, we know--both Preveal's technology, and the fact that you can make up to 35% on each sale by adding on frames. We're sold, and your clients will be too. Visit Preveal's website for more info on their app.
When I think of packaging and products for my brand, I think of high‑end pieces that will not only provide a remarkable experience for my clients, but also leave them with beautiful pieces for their home. I purchased Design Aglow's engagement guest book design a long time ago and have since created many for my couples to display at their wedding. Of course, they are always packaged in beautiful boxes and bags!
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!
