How to Get a Jump Start on 2015 Sales

Does your business hear those crickets chirping in January, February and even March?

If you are like most photographers you get slammed with business during fall, only to have everything come to a screeching halt as Santa heads out to deliver those photo gifts.

So how can you plan for that dead period right after the holidays?

We have a smart and effective way to add some extra cha-ching in your Christmas stocking and to get sessions on the books for those sloooooooow days of winter.

Gift Certificates

We all have those clients that need a gift in a pinch. Hello, every dad everywhere.
Why not be prepared with gorgeous, prepackaged gift certificates lined up and ready for clients to add-on as they come in for fall sessions?

Go the extra mile, take a photo of your beautiful prepackaged gift certificates and post about them on your blog, social media outlets, and even in your newsletter.

What You Need

A Design Aglow Show & Sell Kit (Or your favorite 5x7 frames)
4x6 or 5x7 Blank Gift Certificates
Pretty Packaging

How to Sell

Frame your gift certificates and style them with pretty ribbons and packaging, ready for gifting. Then, stage a photoshoot for your new product. Market your gift certificates and be sure to highlight their thoughtfulness.

Ideas for social media posts:
Treat mom with the beautiful family session she always wanted. Your Studio Photography’s Framed Gift Certificates make the perfect, thoughtful gift this holiday season”.

Need a last minute gift for that special someone? We now offer beautifully framed gift certificates for newborn, maternity, and family photo sessions.

You can offer gift certificates for any amount. You can also make certificates for a specific package (think January mini session), a product (like a framed 11x14 with your session), or a percentage off (30% off sessions before March 2015).

Pre-package your frames all at once for an easy and quick holiday sale! Or give each one as a gift with a purchase over $x so your best clients can give to their friends.

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!

I left college after my junior year and worked my butt off to build up my business.
