One week and counting and the birthday party is still in full swing! In case you missed the announcement, we’ve received so many prize donations that we’re keeping this thing going ’til the very last giveaway has been awarded – so check back today and all weekend long for more giveaways, pop-quiz instant winners, and flash giveaways on Facebook!

Right now we have an amazing prize pack combo from Prevealthe iPad Sales Tool for Photographers, The Search Engine Cookbook for Photographers by Zach Prez, and a “Full Demo Pack” from “The Shop” at AMSW Photography. This is a prize package worth over $230.00!


preveal

From The Business of Awesomebusinessofawesome.com:

Preveal brings the power of showing your clients their images on their walls to your iPad. With easy step-by-step instructions, your clients gather photographs of the places in their home that they would like wall art (or you go to their home and take the photos for them), and you can then show your clients exactly how the photographs will look in their home. You can show them a variety of wall gallery collections as well as showing them how single large outwork pieces will look. Ever had that client that wondered if an 8×10 print would look great over their fireplace? Now you can show them that it is too small, and what size will be more appropriate.

To go along with Preveal, make sure you get a copy of Design Aglow’s free guide for clients to photograph their home for the wall displays. The educational guide ‘teaches your clients how to take a well composed, properly scaled image of their home’s future wall gallery location‘.”



SEO Cookbook

The Search Engine Cookbook for Photographers
Easy Recipes to Rank Higher” by Zach Prez will help you:

         •  Get more clients
         •  Attract the right clients
         •  Charge the fees you deserve
         •  Scale back paid marketing activities
         •  Look like you’re the best in your area
         •  Build a client base that can generate referral business

“My process for teaching is very much like a chef sharing a recipe. I simple tell you what you need and how to put it all together. So I came up with a cookbook model with tools, ingredients, and recipes to rank you well. You’re going to love it!” –Zach Prez

WOW! This is THE guide to understanding and implementing SEO. My favorite part are the recipes provided. 115 pages of holding my hand and literally spoon-feeding me the information. It was refreshing to be able to sit and learn without having to supplement with other sources. I strongly recommend this for business owners that are lacking on the SEO and web presence. After this book SEO will be a cakewalk!” -Rachel Brenke, The Law Tog



amsw demo pack

“The Shop” at AMSW Photography‘s “Full Demo Pack” includes:

1.  Cloud Overlay in “Puffy Heart”
2.  Color Texture in “Yellow and Orange”
3.  Lightroom Presets 4 & 5 in “Dark Pastels Sampler”

Have you heard about the Chic Critique Forum yet?

The Chic Critique Forum is focused on providing candid critique for photographers. Whether you are an amateur or a seasoned photographer, Chic Critique Forum is the place to be when you are ready to step it up. Our forum members are strongly encouraged to offer at least one suggestion to every image they choose to comment on. Also, members can sign up for our exclusive “4-Week Critiques” with any of our Celebrity Photographers. Join a creative community of aspiring and inspiring photographers who share honest critique.


Right now Chic Critique Forum is having an April affiliate contest to see which websites can get the most new members to join. So you know there’s a little summin’-summin’ in it for me. But what’s in it for YOU?

Well funny you should ask because all new members during the month of April will receive a free digital copy of CHIC Magazine! And look what’s on page 62:

chic critique magazine packaging
CHIC Magazine

As further incentive to join, Paperie will pay for the entire 3 months of a 3-month subscription ($28 total value) for one lucky reader! All you have to do is join Chic Critique Forum and then post a comment here saying you’ve done so and are now a member. The affiliate contest ends on April 30th – so on Tuesday, May 1st we will use Random.org to select the winner from the comments here, and then we will refund the cost of one 3-month membership ($28) to the winner. So what do you have to lose? You get a free digital copy of CHIC Magazine – and have a chance to get the first 3 months of your membership free as well! It’s win-win!

(Please read Paperie’s contest and giveaway rules – and note that Paperie Boutique hosted events are open to U.S. residents age 18 and over only.)

Good luck to everyone who enters!

ATTENTION: All links you post must direct to public-access accounts. We cannot verify links on private, friends & family only, or passworded accounts and they will not be eligible to win this item. If we have to subscribe to your feed, a website, or forum – or request permission to see them – your entry will automatically be disqualified.

You can enter / post up to five times total – one entry each for both the options listed above. (PLEASE NOTE: Comments are held for moderation and may not appear immediately. Please be patient! They will show up eventually.)

You have five chances to win, but only one chance PER OPTION – please do not post the same link multiple times. Duplicate links will be removed. Each entry requires its own separate comment to have multiple chances to win!

Comments on this entry will be numbered in order of posting. The winning number will be chosen by Random.org, and the winner will be contacted within 48-72 hours of the winner-announcement to claim their prize.

Good luck!
