how a photographer sells frames to 75% of her clients, the easy way

Gorgeous, modern photography deserves an equally gorgeous, modern display. Design Aglow believes that there is great value–both for your clients’ walls, and your business–in selling a polished final product. We understand that professional wedding and portrait photographers need sleek frames to enhance their clients’ imagery, and simple solutions for selling those frames to their clientele. Our frame shop offers both. We provide affordable, California-made frames to elegantly present your finished work, and support them with resources to help you earn additional revenue on every sale, with minimal work.

Elizabeth of Elizabeth Clark Photography shares, "When Design Aglow debuted their Frame Shop last year, I was immediately intrigued. I knew there was a desire from clients to have me frame their pieces, but I couldn't figure out a financial and time-efficient way to deliver what they wanted. But I had a feeling that these frames would work really well, and I was right!

For my sample walls I used two grab-and-go wall collections - one in Gold Bella and one in Barn Grey Woodworks. I also use the Frame Shop Catalog & Lookbook, which I printed through MagCloud. All the frames along the wall are for two client orders that I am about to fill! Since putting them up on my studio walls and creating a catalog from the downloadable template, I have sold frame collections at 75% of my client sales meetings.

I have also used some for my own home. Selling these has allowed my clients to receive a product ready for the wall, instead of having to do the extra step of going to a framer themselves or settling for mounted prints (most of my clients tend to like the more traditional look of prints matted in frames, which is my personal favorite display option for photographic art as well).

One little sales tactic I use with these frames - I only sell them in sets of three or as the other pre-made wall collections. This way, I don't have extra frames sitting in storage... but even better than that, I get more images up on my clients' walls. All of my sessions are taken with the goal to tell a story, and I mention that putting up frames in a triptych or collection is the best way to do this in a home. It has worked so far!"

Thanks for sharing, Elizabeth! We love your approach and are so happy for your success. Enjoy your $75 shopping spree on us~

I never really intended to be a wedding photographer or cinematographer. I’ve always had a huge love for movies, and the idea of getting into that industry intrigued me, but I didn’t really know where to start. When I graduated with a degree in communications in 2006 and figured I'd just be at a typical 9-5er for the rest of my life. In 2011 a friend posted on Facebook that she needed someone to videotape her wedding ceremony (happening the next day). I borrowed my brother's canon Rebel and that was my first official wedding. A year later I quit my day job and was shooting weddings full time.

Somebody, somewhere has decided that Sunday & Monday are the days that photographers should be taking off. And we agree that everyone needs time with friends & family, time to catch up on Netflix, and time to do the laundry. But is your work schedule working for you?

When you are finished with your photo session or wedding, do you feel a bit like that guy that was recently dragged off the airplane, semi-conscious and bleeding? Because that is basically what it feels like when you’ve lost control of your clients. 

The good news is it doesn’t have to be that way. You just need to reclaim the power.
