By now you may well have heard the words “SSL certificates”, but do you know what those two words really mean? Well, if you’re still a bit confused or perhaps feel completely in the dark, this is the post for you. We have the complete story behind SSL certificates and what they mean exactly.
Other than for the obvious reasons of wanting you and your visitor’s data to remain safe, there are other benefits of making sure your website is secure. In an attempt to make the internet a safe place to b, and do business the search engines are going to be dropping site ranks on websites that are not delivered over SSL.
We have been working hard on a massive upgrade – “One-Collection”. This upgrade is free and offers better functionality in all areas.
The collection and file edit pages have been completely redesigned to include new and improved features and tools including better search options, sharing tools, increased SEO and client privacy options. The new user interface now also supports all sales (prints, downloads and stock licences) and distribution options all from one collection.
By upgrading your workflow will be easier, quicker and better overall. We have written a help article here to explain all the benefits of the “One-Collection” in detail.
It’s hard to believe but February is only a couple of weeks away. This means that Valentine’s Day is creeping up on us at speed so it’s time to get promoting.
We’ve created some Valentine’s Day page sets to give you some inspiration for what you could be offering your clients. You can easily download the Valentine’s Day page set into your website here. This is a really great tool for increasing sales at this quieter time of year and for boosting your search engine optimisation. We have created a portrait offer, as an example, however you can of course customise the images and text to better suit your business and customer base. Other offer ideas might include a boudoir session, engagement or anniversary shoot, pet portraits or a family photo session.
We have a a new payment option! This feature will make charging your clients and receiving funds supremely easy. The new payment option allows you to create a payment link which can then be sent to your client via a customised email.
All you have to do is input the payment information – what the payment is for, the amount owed and any admin notes (which are kept hidden from the customer). Once this information has been submitted a payment link is generated which links to your default payment option (for example your PayPal account). Once you click the link a customised email will open, in a separate window, in your email account. Just enter the customer’s email address and hit “send”.
The customer can then click on the link to make the payment. Once the payment has been made you will receive a notification by email. The payment will also be recorded in your sales history. It really is as simple as that!
To use the new feature; login to your account on theimagefile and go to My Sales > Payment Request.
