Clients dragging their feet placing orders? Tired of sending polite “reminders” that fall on deaf ears? Not sure how to get your clients to order on time so you can keep your workflow flowing smooth as silk?

We can help.

Incentives, baby. It’s true, people are motivated by beautiful gifts….things they love and desire. This is where you come in. You’ve got that…your images of their most loved people. We like to include this verbiage when motivating clients to complete their orders AND we use it several times throughout the process too:

Orders placed within 2 weeks of your session will receive a bonus gift: a set of three stunning custom mini brag books. Keep one and give the others as gifts. Our clients rave over these little treasures!

In addition to pleasing clients with a sweet bonus, guess what? You are getting your work out into the world and right in front of your target audience!
