A New Way Of Sharing
All of last year I did something a little different, I shared images with my clients via a personalized client site. Each couple received their own website complete with downloadable galleries of their engagement session and wedding day. They also received thumb drives in pretty little packaging as well:). It has been a great way to get images to my clients quickly and easily while giving them an all access "pass" to their images! They even have the capability of sharing their wedding images with the click of a button with family and friends. And who doesn't love that?!
This year I am continuing to offer these personalized websites to all portrait, engagement and wedding clients. Pass is the application which allows me to do this and the amazing crew behind it just rolled out some fab new features so I thought I'd explain why photographers and clients alike are head over heels for Pass!
Ok, so what is Pass?
Pass is an image sharing application that the amazing people over at Showit developed for photographers to share images with their clients. Photographers simply upload their client's images to the application and share those images via an online gallery. Clients in return have easy access to their images and get to share those images easily and quickly with friends and family!
Why is Pass so great?
I'm all about giving my clients a great experience and Pass allows me to do just that! I love being able to share images with my clients and clients love being able to share those images quickly and easily with their friends and family! It's a great marketing tool for the photographer and a new way for clients to share their images. I truly believe that PASS is the way of the future and I'm happy to jump on board now!
What are some of the features of Pass?
Once clients have their gallery they can view all of their images in a fab new collage format and also view individual images. They have the option to download a favorite image from their gallery or ALL the images if they desire! There's even an iPhone and iPad app that allows clients to view and share these images whenever, wherever!! Plus with a simple click clients can share their images directly to social media outlets like Facebook, making it easy for friends and family to view their images! Plus each gallery has a guestbook area so visitors can offer their congrats! And soon clients will be able to order prints directly through their gallery and the app! A one stop shop for all your image needs!! Each gallery is stored safe in the cloud for one year, with the option to extend the life of the gallery after that. That means all client images are safe online from damage and gives the photographer and the client peace of mind!
I loved the "old" Pass but the Showit peeps really went above and beyond with the new release. I'm SO excited to share these new galleries with clients this year! Check out the video below that the Showit developers created which plainly explains why Pass is so awesome. Enjoy!
