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

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.
