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?
There are any number of ways you can market your photography business: online profiles with paid and unpaid services, or social media advertisements. You could even go old school and try a radio ad or billboard. But we’re firm believers that one of the best ways to spread your good name is by good old-fashioned word of mouth. Because it works.
Visiting Paris has always been on my bucket list and my two best friends and I have been talking about planning a trip for what seems like forever. Finally, one day while perusing flight deals we decided to just go for it. The plan was to travel to Paris first, London second and take the train back and forth. In hindsight, flying into Paris would've been much easier, especially after a long flight and jet lag. But easy doesn't make great memories! The train was actually quite convenient and a great way to relax after a long flight. You can buy snacks (and WINE) for your 2 hour trip without even leaving the station.
