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.
For the past couple of years we have been creating Christmas page sets as a ready-made way for you to create Christmas offers and market to your clients at this busy time of year. But this year we have also created brand new Christmas themed social media. This is a great way of not only marketing on your website or blog, but also on all your social media platforms allowing you to reach a lot more people.
Last year we created some Christmas inspired page sets, and this year we have done just the same. The new page sets display a selection of Christmas gift sessions you could be offering your clients that can be easily downloaded and displayed on your website.
Social media is one of the most popular business marketing tools in the world. Thousands of businesses use social media as a way of marketing, advertising and promoting their business for free, to millions of people at one time. However for many small business owners, or those of us that are a little less “techy”, the idea of starting out on social media can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why we’ve started the social media service!
