BacktoStudioBack to Studio for Online Proof Plans!

 HHImageHost Online Sales has just added a new feature – Back to Studio for Online Proof Plans!

Are you using HHImageHost for your school and sports photography? Summer 2012 marks the release of Online Proof Plans.   By being able to use eZevent to match images and data for sports or school jobs, uploading those images with individual passwords to HHImageHost, creating your own packages and price lists, and orders coming back to the studio, you have the best of automation and control.

 Already customers are telling us how they will use this new capability.

  •  Offer online proof plans in conjunction with printed proof plans to increase participation and sales and reduce credit card keying labor
  • Offer presale packages with online pose selection to add on sales when customer sees all there is to choose from
  • Offer products that you make in the studio or get somewhere else
  • Offer more green screen backgrounds than will fit on a proof plan flyer
  • Offer more products that will fit on a proof plan flyer
  • Have clients enter their own personalization data and import the data into eZevent for lower data entry costs 

By combining the elements of viewing client images online with being able to offer a product for sale with those orders going back to the studio, you can offer the widest products and packages for sale while maintaining control of orders.

 The best part is that this capability is already included in your HHImageHost subscription so there is no risk in adding it to how you are already working.  The only other charge is when you sell something online – only 3% plus 3% credit card transaction fee.

If you are not currently using HHImageHost, you are missing out on tools to increase sales and reduce studio labor – so be sure to sign up NOW!
