    I am always having people ask me about packages. I had always just priced everything a la carte. I think people prefer the convenience of just being able to say, "I want package A" for example. But I Am really clueless as to what combination to put into these said packages. I plan to keep my a la carte pricing but I really need to add some packages. Please share some of your most popular packages. Please do not feel the need to include your prices in this discussion.

    "You know Mrs. Client I used to have packages, but I never seemed to be able to pick just what everyone wanted.

    So many people wanted me to take this out, and add that, or asked if they could get this size instead of that size, that I just set it up so each client could make a custom package that was just perfect for them.

    So I'll help you put your perfect package together. Lets starting with what you would like in the way of framed wall sized prints, since those are on sale and have a 15% discount this week."

    Very nice choice of words. It really makes "Mrs. Client" feel like I am catering to her individual needs. So do you just let them know the a la carte prices and then they tell you what kind of package they would like and then you "make them a package deal"?

    My most popular package for HS seniors:

    2 8x10
    4 5x7
    24 wallet

    all from one pose

    Now, of course, I nearly always sell more than one package to seniors. And, the most popular options are to add poses and wallet prints to a package.

    A local pro does a lot o his pricing on based on poses. I need to snatch a brochure or one of his pricing guides. :)

    No, no package deal just whatever I mentioned as a discount for the wall prints or whatever I use as a 'call to action' (this week).

    "Oh yes Ms. Client, these are all, already package pricing."

    But, there will be something extra in their order, as a surprise.

    There are books available that explain salesmanship and negotiating in depth.

    Always underpromise, and over deliver.

    I do have packages for seniors, like Pete. Seniors like to have lots of wallets to hand out to friends. I put the wallets in funky tins. They also like brag books.

    A classic high school senior line is, "I want something that's unique, that's just me. You know, just like all my friends got last year." ;)

    It's an expression of a basically third party group... Like people usually say something and somebody says something that is basically the same or a smart remark and they say no comment from the peanut gallery... I'm not exactly sure were it came from but I have heard it for many years.
