You’re New to Online?

With over 87% of British consumers making online purchases in 2020, the pandemic has lead to an even larger uptake in online purchasing. When your business is selling photos it only makes sense to have a visual purchase sold online.


Online Myths

Online Facts

Parents haven’t got internet Parents have had to have internet in the home for virtual classes
Schools don’t want online Schools prefer online as there is less work, less interruption and no cash collection
I will make less money More variety, incentives, marketing notifications and mix-and-match packs lead to higher average spends online
With GDPR in place, photos cannot be sold online In many instances selling photos online through password-secured individual galleries is more GDPR-compliant than selling through proofs

Testimonial Hybrid Proofs Online vs. Proof Cards

“Since the Pandemic we made the decision to not print proof cards anymore. We haven’t seen any drop off in sales at all since going 100% online with GotPhoto (we ran a Hybrid model previously) and in fact in many cases the sales have improved. A lot of companies like us have been doing proofs the same way for so long and they feel that changing that could affect sales or that people won’t be able to order.”
