A great question
In reply to phipop, Feb 1, 2013

I do mostly events, weddings, anniversaries, graduation parties,

My wife has made me promiss to cut back.

Only doing about 30 weddings a year now.

Many of my young clients do not want albums.  They just want pictures on a disk so they can post on facebook.  I used to say no but lost jobs to others.

SO

I do what they ask for.  I also have an upsell that has done well.  I give them my images on an ipad.  They get the ipad and the images.  I purchase the ipads  at a local Best Buy and upload from my computer to the ipad.

I have sold 10 of these upsells so far.  The brides love it.  Others still just want me to shoot the images, pos tprocess them and deliver a disk.  I am making a good profit on this ipad package

I, also, have the clients who want albums.  I sell 5 x 7 parent albums and 10 x 10 bridal albums.  I use Bay Photo to print my albums.  Yes, this is the most profit to me but rather than loose a client, I do what they WANT.
