Your ecommerce website is living its best life online, able to make sales for you even while you sleep. But what about selling in your store, on location, or just on the couch in a client’s home?
The PhotoBiz ToGo Pocket App lets you perform essential store and ecommerce functions you need to run your business effectively from anywhere.
Here’s how you can turn any phone or mobile device into a business center, able to sell products & services, take payments, send invoices and manage client contracts quickly and easily.
Scenario: Retail Location
You've seen those tablets that people use to check out in cafes, clothes shops, or bookstores, right? It's just a tablet with a program installed on it that can process orders.
Well, the PB2Go App can turn any tablet or phone into your own point of sale machine, both in your retail location or when you’re traveling – like at a curb market, tradeshow, or at a client’s home. It's free, too!
Just pick the products and services your client is buying. The app tabulates the total and will add all applicable taxes and/or shipping fees. Then, you just enter the client's card number and process that payment.
You get paid, and your client will get an emailed receipt. Plus, if that client comes in a lot, you can save their payment info for later, so next time they don't need to give you a card. Nifty.
And because you have the client's email address, you can easily send your best customers an email with a coupon or offer when the time is right! (Remember, you get 100 free marketing emails to send each month with PhotoBiz.)
Scenario: High Volume Sports
Hey. Guess what. I’m on a football field and it’s swarming with kids and parents. Usually, I’d have parents take a paper form to fill out... and hopefully return later with their order. (Yeah, right.)
These parents DO want photos, but everything is crazy. There are kids running everywhere and they’ve got to get home for dinner. Most of them left their wallet in the car.
Your PhotoBiz ToGo App can make selling in this scenario WAY easier.
Process a transaction on the spot so the parent can go on and get home. Cash, checks or cards – no sweat. They get an email receipt so there’s no confusion, and the order is logged in your books so it won’t get lost.
If the parent doesn’t have their wallet, you can send an invoice for them to pay online when they get home. You can also send reminders so you can collect your money without having to hunt people down.
You ALSO save their emails. Notify them quickly when orders come in using CONVERSATIONS… but also don’t forget to use this as an opportunity to build loyalty and revenue down the line.
This is a list of people who will want photos later, who’ve already bought from you. In the fall, you can send them a MARKETING EMAIL letting them know they can get family portraits done from you, too.
Scenario: In-Person Proofing
You’re at a client’s house doing their in-person proofing session. You’re showing your client their beautiful images… and they are WOW-ed! They want the works!
Heirloom Artwork! Deluxe Albums! T-shirts!...
While they’re riding that high, ooh-ing and ahh-ing over their images, you can bust out your phone, add up their total, and make a quick invoice that gets sent to them automatically.
It won’t break the moment. And your client can keep dreaming about their order without having to break the flow by pulling out a calculator and their pocketbook. It’s a cool way to sell, that doesn’t seem too sales-y.
With an invoice you can:
Client Forms & Contracts
Paperwork! It’s the worst! But it’s also necessary…
If you have client forms or contracts you need your customers to fill out (like a Model Release Form) you can send them via email so your customers can complete them online ahead of their session.
Just tap to send, and you’re done. It’s really easy. You can even take a session deposit right there on the form.
Just set up your standard forms in advance. Once you get a booking, go to the app and pick the form you want to send. Tap “SHARE” and select the client's email address. Your client receives their form in a few seconds and can fill it out online. You'll get a notification when it’s done!
Easy, easy, easy. And it eliminates the need for you to send over papers or deal with LOST paperwork. Each submission is stored online and you can pull it up anytime.
