I always find myself searching my bookmarks for album manufacturers – I have yet to standardize, although I have done several Graphistudio books – but it doesn’t hurt to have other manufacturers on your speeddial… well… you know what I mean Feel expand upon this list so we all can benefit!
Do you feel like touching off a near riot on a forum or Facebook page for Photographers? Ask whether or not they sell digital images and you will normally get some STRONG opinions.
So while ShutterCliq was at WPPI in Vegas this year, we came across something pretty cool. Canvases, Metals and press printed albums, are all pretty familiar mediums for delivering your images to your clients. Ever thought about Wood? Frankly, I hadn’t before I saw the outstanding work of a company called Woodsnap.
“When I think about selling I get nauseous. I get the shakes, the sweats and my mouth gets dry, I just want them to order their pictures, and get the heck away from me. When it’s all said and done I’m happy…until I see that their order is a few 4×6′s and 5×7′s…then I’m disappointed again, because I really wanted to sell them a bunch of images this time.” – Untold 1000′s of Photographers
Thanks to Melissa Munding for this fantastic reminder. We’re of course glad her customers are liking her work, but we’re also very happy to hear about the follow up mechanisms she has put in place to benefit her business. And as you read this, you will see why it continues to pay off for her, and how it could pay off for you!
We all struggle with what to charge our clients and sometimes need a kick in the butt to get to profitable territory. Hopefully this article is that kick in the butt for some of you!
