Hey shawn, things have been going great. Most of my groupon customers purchase about $300 worth of up sells. After the shoot. Also, I've done about 20% of the clients and I really can't see doing much more than 50% pod them before the coupon expires but maybe ill get a flood of calls at Christmas
I'm trying to find a solution for processing credit cards in Canada using my mobile phone. I have a blackberry and a wifi only ipad.
Anybody know of a good solution for this? I heard of squareup but I don't think it works in Canada.
To answer the payment question, you receive three cheques for a third of your payment. One every 30 days or so it seems like. So far i've only booked about 10% of my groupon people, and only actually shot 2 of them. So I don't have a whole lot of knowledge yet! I dono maybe I won't book...
So far so good I guess. I've only been contacted by about 10% of the people so far which is good and bad at the same time. I've only actually shot one (an engagement shoot) and I'm shooting another one this weekend. Then I have like one or so a week for awhile. I dono when or if the other...
I've booked three of my 87 shoots so far. Most people who have contacted me aren't 100% sure when they want to do the shoot but want to do it in Spring/Summer. I'm going to try and get a projector for proofing part of each order and see how that goes.
I'm not sure if this link will work (the link used to be www.groupon.com/regina but only while the deal was on):

Also, I didn't write that cheesy description in the link...
My feature is supposed to run on the 8th. Ill keep you guys informed. I think it'll be a good thing as I'm not giving away much. I think the above boudoir session is okay as its only 45 and min, they don't get much so there's lots to be upsold to.
I currently shoot wedding with a d90 and a d3000 as a backup. In the next month or so I'll be upgrading my system to something that is more professional. Here are my current lenses:
18-200 dx vr
150-300 crap lense
35 dx 1.8
18-55 kit lense
This system is less than ideal in my...
It looks like the ad will run mid-february. I'm getting my 'groupon faq' blogpost ready so that I don't have to answer a million questions over and over again. My plan is to book sessions at 3:30 and 5:00pm on weekdays, and then 4 or 5 sessions on sundays. I'll keep you guys updated.
Does submitting photography articles to random article database sites actually do anything for SEO? This seems like a spammy waste of my time, or am I mistaken on this?
I write content filled blog posts now and then between actual photoshoot posts, and I know that those are useful. I'm just...
This is what I ended up quoting her:
300$ for mileage
5$ / person to be paid at the booth
500$ deposit up front
minimum of 400 people through the booth or the difference must be paid prior to DVD delivery.
I'd be setting up two photo booth setups with myself, another photog, and two...
I agree about the need for assistance as well as doing it over a day or two. The main problem is that it is over a long weekend (Friday Saturday Sunday) and I'm booked for a wedding on the Saturday. The pictures would go online and I would give a DVD to the person who contracted me.
I was called by a lady today who is looking to have me setup my photo booth at a 1000 person family reunion this summer. She wants to get a picture of everyone, or atleast Everyone who would like a picture.
I told her that I would charge 200$ for mileage (its a couple hours away) and then...
