More like two big announcements.. Let's dive in.
#1 Payment Plans
Up until now I have only had one policy regarding payment. I accepted either Paypal in advance, or cash, check or card on the day of. With a few questions and some suggestions , I've had some time to consider, and as of now I will be offering payment plans on some larger packages and services.
This applies to anything from family photos, to wedding packages. If you would like to book a session, the retainer will still apply, but now when you pay your retainer at the consultation we will make an outline and terms for future payments.
This should both ease some of the financial burden on those who have it, as well as offer easier gifting options if you have someone that would like to pay for a session for you as a gift.
#2 Digital Gift Certificates
The previous process for purchasing gift cards and certificates was a bit tedious for all involved. Over the next week or so, gift certificate options will be added to the Digital goodies store. This will make it easier to purchase and deliver gift certificates, and you will also still have the option to receive a paper certificate if you choose. An announcement will go out on facebook and twitter (you ARE following me there right?) as soon as they go live, and full instructions will be available as well.
Bonus Announcement: Currently on Twitter there is a promotional code available for new followers (here's your chance!). All new followers until September 30 will receive a $25 credit. No strings, no fine print. This credit can be used for anything - services, products, ANYTHING. Follow us @monarchvisual to get your code.
