What are sheets btw?

Paigey - Nice shot and welcome to the forum. It does look little pinkish on my work monitor. Lens wise 50mm f1.4 or the 85mm f1.8 would work and both much much better than your existing zooms.

Looks better Paigey -- now just be wary of things like the leaf that looks like it's growing out of her head. And welcome to the forum.

I like it a lot more, Paige. Like Bobby said, it's still a bit on the pink side.

Paige, what software do you have for editing? With some quick adjustments using curves and then cooling the image just a bit this image will really pop.

Some kind of torture test? Couldn't get the book to open until I adjusted the settings in flash. Should not make finding a price list complicated.

And of course flash is not ipad friendly....

John

It's on the list of shít to fix.

tiff, the picture of the guy on your what to wear for guys page sure looks femanine. :D

I just looked at your price guide again, how many people go for the $3500 package? :)

None. It needs to be removed to stop freaking people out. Again, on above mentioned list. And, lol, it's the default site image.

My sheets was an 8x10, (2) 5x7's, (4) 3.5x5's or (8) wallets. one pose per sheet.

I was thinking the picture looked like it had a bit to much cyan, but this laptop monitor sucks, it wont keep a calibration with my spyder2 pro.

is that the lab you use? Why should I switch to them over whcc? I dont have time to go through the site today but it looks like they offer some good things. WHCC doesnt offer custom metal print sizes so hopefully that is something this one offers. Im also going to check into bayphoto, but again time. :D

Having the $3500 package seems like it may help clients feel like they are getting a good deal when booking for less. That is, unless your clients are actually freaking out. I love telling potential clients my highest price first and then offering a more economical rate. Seems to work...most of the time. :)

But wouldn't it be better to actually sell the highest package? :D

Ha…of course it would! I’m trying to think of a snappy response to that but coming up blank.

highest and package together could be the subject of the come back. :)

Ive been redesigning my packages since yesterday, I think im on version 3 now, and I am designing them with "pull" in mind to make them want the next package, then the next package, etc. So I have a 20% savings on the first package compared to the a la carte, 30% savings on the second one, 40% and a bit over 50% on the last one. I just tossed a bunch of bonuses in the last one as well to make it more appealing. Then with the last package Im tempted to toss in 50% discount on gift prints and wall prints, and a 25% discount on canvas/metal.

It doesnt look like im going to get a response from that acrylic lab so im not sure if im going to bother offering that yet.

Something ive been thinking about lately is the SWOT analysis and it made me realize one of my weaknesses is after sales to friends and family of the customer. I checked out the proofing website that sal uses but its way to expensive for me right now, especially considering I have smugmug pro membership *been a member of pro for months and still havent used a single feature of it, need to work on that* and sm can do almost the same thing except I cant fulfill the orders myself. I think the site Sal recommended is at least $25 a month to host 200 pictures and $80 either a month or year for the proofing feature.

There should be good and cheap proofing websites online that emails you the order and possibly collects payment. It seems like a simple enough concept.

Lot of sports guys use Exposure Manager. It is dated but works. You can even buy Photo shopping cart software and install on your hosting site. I think the name is Photo Prata but I could be wrong.

I used Exposure Manager for several years, but recently switched to Zenfolio. SM, should have that feature of fulfilling orders yourself, unless that's why I went with Zen over SM. Both EM and Zen allow you to fulfill orders yourself.
