Your Images Forever is a new photography service that aims to protect clientsâ€™ photos and albums from the ravages of time. It thinks ahead and hopes to present clients with say, their wedding photos, 30 to 50 years from now.
Co-founder Connie Zimmerlich says â€œAs a photographer myself, I wanted to be able to offer my clients a service that would safely store their images so that they would be available to them for reprinting in case of disasters, replacement or just redecorating. By enrolling my clients in Your Images Forever, I am giving my studio a reason to keep in touch on a regular basis. Once a client is enrolled, I simply upload their images and then set up the frequency of emails sent to them. This keeps our studio name in front of them and reminds them that we care about their images. As a bonus, we are able to include discounts, promotions, etc in those same emails thereby attracting our clients back into our studioâ€
Your Images Forever gives today’s studio an important competitive edge, Connie adds. Photographers may offer the service to their clients as an annual membership plan, or offer it as an incentive to up-sell additional products and services. As an added protection, it offers the photographers’ client the comfort of knowing they have the option of keeping their original images safely stored in case the photographer is no longer in business.
Your Images Forever stores images on redundant data servers located in several geographical locations to ensure protection.
