Are you a photographer and you want an article to convince you that it’s time to do the switch from DVDs to wedding USB flash drives?
Well, this is it. As you may know, we do DVD duplication as well so we’re not just advocating that you do the switch for us to gain more profit. Whether you choose to get DVDs or flash drives, our business would still be a-ok because we do both.
Okay, moving on. You see, DVDs are forever worth buying and collecting…for movies, that is. But when we’re talking about photographs and short video clips, whether it’s for a wedding or a company event, we highly recommend the flash drive. Why? Here are the reasons:
THE WEDDING USB FLASH DRIVE STRENGTHENS YOUR BRAND
Offering them a USB flash drive in cool packaging instead of the usual DVD would automatically make them think “wow, this photographer is awesome” and would automatically give you big points for it. The next time they or their friend would need a photographer, you’d surely be on the top of their list. And you know what will happen when they pass around the flash drive to their friends and family? Brand recall. Don’t forget to put your website somewhere so they’d know how to contact you.
THE WEDDING USB FLASH DRIVE STRENGTHENS YOUR CLIENT’S BRAND/ IMAGE
Flash drives can be customized to match your client’s brand or theme of event. We have over 1,000 customizable designs to choose from and if you can’t find the one you need, we can mold a design specifically for you. There’s no limit to the design.
THE WEDDING USB FLASH DRIVE WORKS IN THE NEW MACBOOK PROS, THE DVDs DON’T.
Apple decided that it’s about time we get rid of DVDs and so they released new MacBook Pros without a disc drive in them. We’re pretty sure your high-end clients would be disappointed if you give them DVDs and realized “Woops! it doesn’t play on a Macbook.” It’s not your fault but the feelings they have associated with your brand matters. To be safe, ask every client if they’re using Mac and give them the option to have it in a custom flash drive.
THE WEDDING USB FLASH DRIVE CAN BE A GOOD SOUVENIR ITEM OR GIVEAWAY
So instead of your clients buying a separate item for giveaways, they can just request a custom flash drive from you instead. That’s two things for the price of one. With a giveaway like that, the guests would surely be impressed.
THE WEDDING USB FLASH DRIVE IS NOT AS FRAGILE AS DISCS
Our discs are very sturdy but if you want something that’s as sturdy as a rock, this is it. Definitely won’t have scratches and would require a lot of pounding before you break it in two.
ALMOST ALL TVs IN THE MARKET HAVE USB PORTS
Now they won’t have to view their pictures from the laptop, they can plug your flash drive onto their 60-inch flatscreen TV.
Pretty soon, every photographer will be switching to flash drives but, of course, you should still offer DVDs because that’s a much cheaper format. It’s just always good to give your clients options.
