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

Excited to have Ariana Falerni back for another giveaway / guest / vendor post!

Shoot & Sell

Shoot & Sell: Portrait Sales on the Go!
A new iPad app for photographers coming to the iTunes store mid-September.

From the creators of the Photographer’s Wall Display Guides, comes Shoot & Sell – a new iPad app for photographers to help their clients “picture their pictures” on the walls of their home.

Whether meeting with clients at their home, the photographer’s studio, or anywhere in between, Shoot & Sell lets photographers create wall display designs using beautiful stock room backgrounds, a picture of the client’s actual walls or a picture taken on the spot with the iPad’s camera . Thanks to the app’s unique ability to calibrate any room image, images are shown in actual proportion providing an easy, realistic size reference.

Designed by a photographer for photographers, Shoot & Sell is also a powerful tool for any visual artist, from painters to printmakers to Etsy shop owners – all can benefit from showing potential clients the impact that their art can have when placed on a wall.

Photographers who purchased the Photographer’s Wall Display Guides (the desktop version of this app) have told me time and time again that they doubled or tripled their large print and canvas sales immediately” says Ariana Falerni, photographer and creator of the app and the desktop Photoshop version.

I have no doubt that this app will do the same and more. The unique ease of use and touch gestures of the iPad makes it even more fun and interactive to create wall displays and clients love seeing the designs come to life before their eyes!” she continues.

• 15 multi-image templates – many available as clusters /
   collections at popular professional print labs like H&H, Simply
   Canvas, Mpix Pro and more.- more available in future updates

• Two-finger pinch or spread to see single images in as many as
   31 portrait sizes – user can customize which sizes to show or
   not show to match their own product offerings
• Two finger rotate to change canvases from landscape to portrait
   orientation at will
• Frame single images – with or without mats in 5 basic colors
   and 8 combinations of frame and mat widths
• Scale, zoom, flip and rotate images to find the best crop and
   even straighten out horizon lines
• Choose from the 10 included stylish stock room backgrounds
   or import and scale your own room images with the easy to
   use calibration tool
• Additional stock room background images available as
   in-app purchases
• Change wall and furniture colors of stock room images
• Room backgrounds can also be taken on location using the
   iPad’s camera
• Share designs by email, Flickr, Facebook, twitter or to the
   iPad library
• Ability to save and re-open design projects

Entry #11 is from PhotoBella Photography – I love seeing all the different packaging with aqua boxes this year!

click each Wrap Battle entry photo for a larger pop-up version

I wanted my packaging to reflect how much I love my clients, and I wanted them to feel special when they get their order. So I wrap everything with a cute bow in coordinating colors and then I put it in a stamped canvas tote.

I like the idea that there is little waste and the tote can be reused. I also love little unexpected tokens of appreciation, so for the holidays I tie a small photo ornament with 1.5″x1.5″ print to the tote.

Vendors used:
• Canvas tote bags – Hobby Lobby
• Photo boxes – HB Photo Packaging
• Custom rubber stamps (stamped logo on bag & boxes) –
  Simon’s Stamps
• Ribbon – Hobby Lobby
• Small photo ornament – Hobby Lobby
