Be smug with SmugMug

SmugMug is an online platform designed specifically for photographers to showcase and sell their work. Recently I started using SmugMug to share my images with clients. SmugMug provides numerous benefits to my corporate clients, family photoshoot clients and incentive travel clients. In this blog post, I’ll explore some of the advantages to you, the client, of using SmugMug for my photography business.

For Corporate Clients:

Corporate clients often require high-quality images for marketing and advertising purposes. Using SmugMug to share my images with corporate clients can provide several benefits, including:

  1. Easy Access: SmugMug allows me to create custom galleries for each client, making it easy for you to access the images you need.
  2. Professional Presentation: SmugMug’s sleek design and customizable features provide a professional presentation for your images.
  3. Secure Sharing: SmugMug offers password-protected galleries, so I can share your images with you securely.
  4. There is also an “unlisted” option where only people with the link can view the images. You, as the client, can share this link in turn with your clients. Think here of a gala event where you want the delegates to see photos of themselves. 

For Family Photoshoot Clients:

As a photographer, capturing special moments for families is a significant aspect of my work. Using SmugMug to share my images with family photoshoot clients provides several benefits, including:

  1. Convenient Access: SmugMug allows me to share images with clients via a private link, making it easy for them to view and share the photos with family and friends.
  2. Customizable Options: SmugMug offers a variety of customizable options, such as adding watermarks and creating slideshows, to enhance the viewing experience for my clients.
  3. Easy Ordering: SmugMug offers an integrated shopping cart, making it easy for my clients to order prints and other products directly from your website. This is an option above my usual payment plan where clients receive all high res images anyway.

For Incentive Travel Clients:

Incentive travel clients are often looking for high-quality images of their travels to share with family, friends, and colleagues. Using SmugMug to share my images with incentive travel clients provides several benefits, including:

  1. Beautiful Display: SmugMug’s customizable gallery options allow me to showcase images in a beautiful and engaging way, making them more appealing to my incentive travel clients.
  2. Easy Sharing: SmugMug’s social media sharing options make it easy for incentive travel clients to share their images with others.
  3. Easy downloads: it is easy to download all images in a gallery, or for clients to select individual images and download just the ones they want.

For my family photoshoot clients, using SmugMug is a no-brainer. It’s super convenient for you to access your photos through a private link, and you can share them with family and friends with ease. Plus, I can customize the galleries with watermarks and slideshows to enhance your viewing experience. And if you want to order prints or other products, SmugMug’s integrated shopping cart makes it easy.

For my incentive travel clients, using SmugMug is the perfect way to showcase your adventures. I can create beautiful galleries that display your images in a way that’s engaging and visually stunning. And because SmugMug has social media sharing options, it’s easy for you to share your images with others. Plus, you can order prints and other products directly from my website thanks to SmugMug’s integrated shopping cart.

The links never expire which is a major advantage. Often, when using other files sharing sites, the link expires after a number of days. Often the client has not yet downloaded the images so we have to restart the process. The SmugMug route saves time and frustrations for everyone. 

In conclusion, I believe that using SmugMug is the best way to share my images with you. It’s easy, convenient, and provides a professional presentation that will enhance your brand image. So whether you’re a corporate client, a family photoshoot client, or an incentive travel client, you can rest assured that your images will be safe and easily accessible thanks to SmugMug.
