Selling products to relatives across the country creates numerous sales opportunities for us. As we begin photographing for the holiday season, keep in mind that H&H Color Lab now offers drop shipping – which makes ordering and delivering images and products more convenient and more profitable.
Some ideas on how drop shipping can help grow your sales:
Take advantage of upcoming family gatherings to offer large family sittings! Offer same day proofing and drop shipping and watch your sales grow.
You can also offer portrait sittings while you travel too! Drop shipping allows photographers to streamline our operations and conduct business outside our normal trade areas….thus creating the opportunity to create and grow new business.
Dance recitals, plays, sporting events, birthday parties, anniversaries…. the list of opportunities to grow sales is endless; and now with H&H drop shipping, the opportunity is a “no brainer”!
Additionally, drop shipping allows us to get products into the hands of clients quicker. As the holiday approaches and we photograph people from out of town, drop shipping allows us to eliminate work and add convenience to our service.
AND, the price is right!! Offering this service and passing it through to your client is common practice in retail and the market has come to expect it. Thus, while offering drop shipping as an inexpensive service, the opportunity to pass along the cost is an acceptable business practice – thus you increase your sales and NOT your costs – gotta luv it!!!
Thanks, H&H – once again the professional’s partner!
