If you photograph weddings, you know how difficult it can be if the bridal party doesn’t cooperate. After the proofs are ready, it’s one thing for the bride and groom to stop by your studio and pick them up, but quite another for the whole family to keep dropping by and calling to see the pictures.
With web templates in the form of a flipbook, all a family has to do is go to the website, enter a pass code and look at the pictures on their computer. They can do this whenever they want and for as long as they want without bothering you at home. You can even set up an order form on the website with pricing, sales tax, and when the photos will be delivered so that you never have to talk to an unruly family again.
This kind of website works with school photos as well. You can post all of the pictures to the website and let students look through the photos and order right online. In the case of school portraits, you can group them by class, school clubs, and candid photos. If you do it this way, there isn’t even a need to print out proofs. If you are shooting a school dance, you can alphabetize the students by couple and have a candid photos section as well.
Private parties work the same way. If it is a formal party, you might get guests arriving, and then take pictures of the people at their tables, and then dancing. Again, you can organize the photos in the flip book so that they make sense; and everyone, including out of town guests, can see the photos and place an order on the Internet. Gone are the days of people tramping in and out of your home or studio to look at proofs and use your phone and bathroom.
There are a few reasons why this is possible. First of all, the flip book web templates are mostly free. Secondly, as opposed to their predecessors, they are very professional looking. This is because the web development companies that make them hire some of the best web designers in the country. They also come in hundreds of different themes so there will be something that will look right when you load the photographs.
This brings us to our next point. These templates are extremely easy to use. There is no coding to learn and all you have to do is download the template and drag and drop your photos and text into it. Hit the publish button and you are published. Another good thing about these flipbook templates is that the hosting is usually free. So you can publish a website for each event and keep it up as long as you like. All you have to do is pay for the domain name registration which is about $15.
You can also charge a fee for these flipbook web templates. This is another way you can make money off of photographing someone’s event. As you can see, there are many ways that you can use these flipbooks to make money and make your life easier at the same time.
