  • Photos On CD

    I've added Flip Album (cd rom) to my business, both the web site and the physical business. But I've been trying to work out a formula for it. I though that maybe I should charge a fixed price for the albums on a sliding scale depending on the number of photos in the album. Another thought was that maybe I should say something like "the first 10 photos included in the basic price" The reason for this is without a reasonable number of photos a album is not much of an album. Of course any restoration or work on the photos would have to be charged in addition to the basic prices.
    Do any of you have any opinions?

    I used to shoot weddings, and I used a technique for selling that I picked up at a seminar. It worked very well for me, and I think a takeoff from that might work for you. Give me a little time to think about how it might be incorporated (if at all), and I'll get back to you.

      Your idea of a sliding scale based on the number of photos in the album is probably the best way to go, both for you and your customer. The few I've put together were priced out on a protocol of : 1-10, 11-20: etc. No "base" price, and any correction/repair/restore extra. No complaints about that structure so far ( very unusual..almost always someone finds something to complain about).....Just my opinion though, so take it with the proverbial grain of salt. Good luck, Tom

        I told you I would get back to you on this one. I haven't figured out how to incorporate that into your situation. If you want, I'll send you a private message outlining what worked for me, and maybe you can pick up an idea from that. Just say the word.

          Appraising Old Photos
          by thomasgeorge
          In the course of restoration work, have any of you been asked to appraise the photos brought in? I am wondering if this might be a natural extension of the Restoration business--giving appraisals for insurance purposes, etc. Any thoughts on this? It might provide not only a slight increase in income,...

          by beatles2
          I was wondering what is the best way to save my photos [ other than printing them all off]. I have them all burned on cd- r disk right now. A friend told me the cd-r have a life spand of about five years, is that true or is he just blowing smoke. I would really hate to lose every thing.

          Archive Business Idea
          by roger_ele
          I have recently started archiving a collection of old photos and negatives for my family, and have thus realized that this is a need that lots of people may have. Where restoration is motivated by people that want a photo fixed, archiving is for those that want their collection of photos to be saved...

          A new idea-side line new-sales avenue?
          by Grant Hills
          Hello People,

          I have had this idea in the back of my head for some time, but I'm not sure really how to market it.
          Basically it occured to me the other day that there must be a number of commercial companies out there that are very proud of there corporate history, and would have...
