New Sales Features Explained
September 26, 2016
Last week we shared a sneak peek of all the new sales features coming in the free fall update to help you sell more – whether you’re in person with your clients, or selling remotely via Skype or Google+. Now, we’re showing you how to use these cool new features now available in our FREE update for all Album Builder v7, Gallery Designer v7 and Full Suite v7 owners.
1. The New Design Preview Mode
Open the Image Browser and you’ll see a new view up top. Click that to mirror the view of an open album or wall gallery. This allows you to present a clean view of your gorgeous designs to your clients.
2. New Client Orders
You’ll find a new order tab next to the tags tab in the image browser/cient view. By default, there is always an order open ready for you to add something to it. You can also create multiple orders in a project – in case you have two different buyers in the same extended family.
3. Adding Items To An Order
In the order panel, you can add an album, a wall gallery, prints or even a custom item with a click of a button. Additionally, at any time you can use the plus symbol to add an album, gallery or print to an order. You can find the plus signs in both the photographer’s design view and the client view.
4. Review and Print Your Order
Click the orange review order to view an order, make any changes, or comments to an order. Save as PDF top prepare for printing or sending to your client. Additionally, the free Adobe Acrobat reader will allow your clients to digitally sign an order.
5. Set Up Pricing and Logo
Under “My Orders” choose Product Pricing to set your pricing, add your logo and legalese for your order PDFs.
6. Saving Your Collections with Pricing
You can now save your pricing along with your wall collections. This pricing will automatically be added when adding a wall collage to a client order.
7. Pre-Loaded Frames
To start using frames, choose “Framed Prints” as your product type.
8. Album and Gallery Slideshows
When starting a slideshow, you’ll notice that there is a new option to show current design. This will show either an entire album or an entire gallery.
9. Bonus UI Feature – Hide The Top Bar
We know that many of you want a bit more real estate. So we’ve added a way to hide the top bar, much like you can do in Lightroom.
This is a huge update and we want to help you be as successful as possible heading into 2017. Not only do we want to help you design faster and easier, but to increase your studio profits. And because of this, we’ve made this big update FREE for everyone that owns Album Builder v7, Gallery Designer v7 or the Full v7 Suite. (note: Gallery Designer prices will increase by $50 on October 5, Suite and Album Builder prices will not change)
