Wall Art for Engagement Clients
June 17, 2019
If you’re not presenting and selling wall art to your engagement couples, you could be leaving money on the table. Most couples are already getting an album from their wedding, so another expensive album may not be an ideal sales strategy. An engagement session is likely the very first time a couple will have professional portraits taken, and for that reason, many will jump at the opportunity to display their photos on their walls.
Load Your Room
After starting a project, choose Generic Standard (for inches) or Generic Metric (for cm), or choose your lab from the list. Then, simply load the room you would like to design on.
You can either use our included stock rooms, download new rooms from the Design Library, or import a photo your client has taken of their own wall.
Choose Your Wall Art
Next, choose if you would like to design canvases, metal prints, framed prints, or more. You can switch back and forth with the drop down located in the top left of the software window.
Remember, you can add as many rooms as you want within one Gallery Designer sub-project. And different rooms mean that you can choose different mediums – canvases, metals, and more.
Drag and Design
Next, drag photos onto the room, click the Layouts button and select one of the designs.
You can choose from standard layouts, your saved designs, or download more designs with in our Design Library.
Here is a quick video tutorial of what we’ve just gone over.
There are a number of ways to show wall art designs to your clients. First, you can “Export For Web” and show them what it would look like on their wall in an email, or even a text. A Fundy Storyteller, Jessica Hill, sold her biggest canvas to date over a text message.
Secondly, and even better, you can show them in a slideshow with them sitting there. The slideshow with music is an incredible sales tool.
Building an Order
Building out an order in Fundy Designer is as simple as choosing “Add Gallery” from the Client Order menu. You can learn how to save out your own designs, with pricing, here.
Here is a quick 60 second overview of what is possible in an IPS Session. Many Fundy Designer users are doing IPS sessions over Skype or Zoom, as well as in person.
We hope that these tips help to make your engagement sessions this year the best ever.
