We would like to introduce you to our newest Featured Sponsor, Stickyalbums! They were kind enough to put together a summary of what they have to offer and we are also having a giveaway for a free 1 Year Professional Membership ($178 value)! So, be sure to read all the way through the post to find out how to enter into this fantastic giveaway! Now…onto the good stuff…
Stickyalbums.com lets you finally create custom digital photo album – mobile apps – that your clients can save to and – share from – their iPhones and iPads.
As a professional photographer myself, the inspiration for stickyalbums came from wanting to do something unique and special for my high-school senior clients. Wallet prints used to be our bread and butter. But more and more my clients started ordering less prints and caring more about getting (or stealing) digital images for their phones and Facebook.
Additionally, giving out custom business cards to my senior reps was getting more expesive and returning less and less business. Finally my little cousin who was a senior at the time clued me in. “Oh no – I have no time for paper – I will lose those.” It turns out most of my clients were too.
I knew I could no longer afford to ignore the trends. I needed to deliver my images to where my clients wanted them most – on their phones, and in a way that they would be excited to share them. The response from not just my high-school senior clients – but ALL of my clients was so great – I new I had to find a way to provide this same tool to other photographers. So I founded stickyalbums.
The mobile revolution is now:
Can you afford to ignore this data?
- In 2011 Apple sold more iOS devices than they have sold computers in 28 years.
- Wireless network traffic jumps 133 percent in 2011
- Smart phones are most popular among young and wealthy.
Are you frustrated with your other marketing efforts? Continuing to offer bigger discounts and free prints will continue to attract bargain hunting customers. Use custom apps to put your most valuable asset – your customers – to work for you. With a professional membership you can create unlimited stickyalbums. This way you can create a free “sneak peak” app with 9-12 images for each of your clients to promote and share with their friends and family, and then sell them a full album ala carte at a premium or only attached to your premium print packages.
Visit us at stickyalbums.com to learn more and get the free demo app on your own iPhone or iPad. Then sign-up for a free trial and build your first stickyalbum on us.
We were excited to try this out for ourselves and I have to say that this is really an amazing offering for clients! I can’t wait to surprise my clients with their very own mobile albums of their favorite photos from their session! You’re welcome to check out our album to see StickyAlbums in action!
