I agree with Sandpiper sbout delivering more than you promise but disagree sbout lowering the client's expectations In order to exceed them. If you sre shooting 200 snd delivering 20, they are slready wondering where the other 90 perent of the imsges are going. Stick with promising 20 snd giving them a few extra. That way you don't open the door to the "I want to see the rest of them conversation:
I've already published my 2015 pricing guide, so I don't want to change it now. =) But, I meant offering 20 (which is in my pricing guide) but including one or two extra if I like them well enough.
Sometimes even getting 20 unique photos for a customer can be a challenge in a one-hour shoot, though!
For my amateur sharing of jpg's with family/friends, I use Microsoft OneDrive. I upload the pics to a public folder (that others can access only if they have the right link), then I "share" it with myself. OneDrive sends me an email linking to that folder. I then forward that email to whoever I want to have access. They can view or download the pics. After about a month, I delete the folder - if anyone didn't do the download, they have to contact me to get it put back up.
I'm not saying this would be good for business, but it sure solved the "usb problem" for me.
I do also offer an online gallery for customers - actually, it's they way they order prints. I use shootproof along with ProDPI, when they come to pick up the CD with photos, in the folder is also a thank you letter, some business cards, a coupon, and a card with a link to their personal web gallery. They can then use that to order additional prints, all I have to do is approve the order and make sure everything is A-ok, and they get them in the mail 2-3 weeks later with no further input from me.
