People love to share photos with friends and family via email and on social media. I am always thrilled when one of my clients shares a photo of their loved one next to the portrait I have created for them with me. These photos always bring a smile to my face and I am in the process of adding these photos to the website.
Photos submitted by clients are always a great help for me to attract new business. Ordering a portrait from someone you do not know is always taking a bit of a chance. When you visit a website and can see not only customer reviews but also photos they have shared of their paintings it is reassuring to new potential customers that they are in good hands.
If you have already submitted a photo look for yours when you browse the portfolio section. Sometimes customers even share photos of other gift items they have purchased through my store. I welcome these photos as well. :)
Would it not be fun to run a contest of the best photo submission? Keep submitting your photos via email. If I get enough photos together to warrant running a competition I will set one up in the fall.
