Making the Most of Prom Candids

With Easter less than a month away it’s safe to say that Proms are just around that next bend in the calendar. Though not the “cash cow” that they once were—especially from posed couple portraits—proms can still deliver decent revenue returns when you attack it from all fronts. Though the explosion of digital cameras and camera phones has influenced our industry significantly, there are still some strategies that you can employ to maximize your income at proms, namely, get the most out of your candid photographers and the number of images taken at prom events. It’s a proven fact that the more images taken at an event, the better your sales will be. By just relying on the posed couple packages you may be leaving extra money on the table. Using the CCS PhotoMatch system for Party Pics® candids can influence the buying patterns of your school dances and proms. Read more [...]

Dance schools are a great revenue opportunity!

Photographers do not often discuss Dance Schools with the same excitement as the highly coveted sports or activities such as football. Many photographers stick to the basic, and familiar, sports such as soccer, football and basketball.

Here is why… I base my suggestion on recent dance shoot experience. These results (if not better) were also confirmed by other photographers who offer similar products, pricing and the same marketing method. To hop right to the numbers, we achieved a $45.39 sales average (subtotal without tax & shipping). The sales average with shipping included was $49.59. This is an important number because in our scenario, shipping is a profit center for the photographer. In addition to a healthy sales average we experienced a 74% buy rate. Learn more…..
