For professional photographers, product samples are a key tool for selling products, packages and even ideas to customers. To help your clients understand what they are truly looking for, you have to offer them the opportunity to handle a premium quality, handmade product for them to see, feel and fall in love with. This physical interaction can create an emotional connection with the products and photography inside.

The psychological advantage to this process is that it encourages your clients to visualise their own pictures showcased inside, meaning your customer now wants you and you alone to take their photographs. Don’t forget that it’s not just a book that you are selling; it’s a beautiful, handmade snapshot of a significant moment in their history, ready to be treasured for a lifetime as a priceless family heirloom.

Professional photography product samples are a crucial element for active in-person sales and are vital for a modern successful photography business. Showcase your best photography on a paper that truly compliments your images so clients can see your work at its best. Sample albums and books are perfect for in the studio or when meeting potential clients out and about.

If you are a favoured or exclusive photographer for a local venue, why not supply a sample album to be kept on site, that way you are showing the venue dressed for a wedding, and promoting your own photography simultaneously. This can be a successful method for appealing to clients who may never have had the opportunity to find your business otherwise, making it an excellent marketing tool.

At Sim, we offer 40% off sample albums and books throughout the year, so you can put together your best work ready to show off to clients. We also offer 20% off any USB or presentation samples including our folio boxes. Design your ideal product in your SimWare software, add it to the checkout basket and select your favourite cover colour.

Then add our dedicated sample code at the checkout to deduct your discount; SAMPLE2019.

All products purchased with a sample discount will be marked with “Studio Sample” on the back of the cover, ensuring this does not detract from you design or photography.
