In the last couple of months i swapped over from giving people a package deal which included the session and x amount of images on disc, to now charging a session fee, and them purchasing prints/products from me. (no digital negatives - although after they spend so much they are eligable to buy them if they please.
At first i was a little weary about doing it, as i am one of the only photographers here (where i live) that do it - everyone supplies the images on disc and charge nothing for it - well close to nothing. (When i first started my business in January there was myself and 3 others, there is now 26 aspiring photographer's in town!) hehe anyway that is beside the point!
I would like to reward my clients with little 'thank you's' firstly for choosing me to capture their special moments (as their is so many of us). In every clients order i include a voucher for 10% off our shop (we have a tyre business) Kinda works good in both respects we get more business and they get discounted tyres! hehe
They also get a voucher for a hair salon in touch again % off.
BUT i would like to include 'freebies' for the ones that spend that bit extra.
I have my minimum spend set to $300 (which can be on prints/products), and to my amazement (in a good way) people having been spending anywhere from $1000 - $3000 on a session. So i thought i would set price targets (not advertise them) but automatically add them to their order once they reach certain amounts.
EG. $1000+ include a mini accordian album with images from their session. Then something else if its $1500+ etc.
So i have 2 questions!
Where can i purchase the self mount mini accordian albums? I used to have a website in my favourites that sold them - but back then i didn't supply any products to clients and i since can't find it. (and its no where in my favourites).
The other, what other 'gifts' do you think clients would appreciate?
What would you like if it was you?
I really do have the most amazing clients and they are always so grateful, so i would really like to do something nice for them.
Any suggestions would be Greatly appreciated!
