How to Increase Orders from Past Photo Shoots

Do you have images stored away from past photoshoots? Maybe you have photo sessions from prior to joining Zenfolio you have yet to upload or, perhaps you have old galleries already on Zenfolio that your clients haven’t visited in a while. As news about COVID-19 continues to develop, we would like to offer you some helpful tips to drive sales. Right now is a great time to dig in and share galleries with clients to remind them of the beautiful memories you captured! With a few easy steps, you can upload new galleries or open up archived galleries and use Zenfolio’s selling tools to increase your online orders and photo sales.

1.) Start uploading and selling archived images in Zenfolio:

With Zenfolio, you have the tools at your fingertips to upload previous photo shoots instantly to start selling to your clients or open up private/password protected galleries you have stored in Zenfolio to start selling from instantly. 

 Gail Roser from Grand Photography LLC posted a great idea on our Facebook page and it got us inspired.

2.) Create and use Zenfolio coupons and discounts:

Have you ever run your own photo sale? It might sound daunting but with Zenfolio’s selling tools you can create custom coupons and discounts to market to your clients and start increasing more photo orders in your galleries.  Zenfolio has easy to use tools to create individual coupons or a coupon campaign to drive sales.

Marissa Balletti-Lavoie from Sassy Mouth created a 20% off coupon for photo orders and let everyone know their images were available. Be sure to share it via email and social so your clients know they are available.
