September is almost gone? What's that all about? Wow, crazy how fast a month can go. As a quick update, since our last blog, we shot graduation pictures for a couple more young women and three-month old pictures for a handsome young gentleman named Henry. We will be posting those on Facebook soon.
We used the time to do some planning for a home studio. We're pretty good on equipment and have purchased some backgrounds. A little painting and practice and we should be good to go before the Holiday season gets into full swing.
We have created a Google+ business page, and are working on adding some content to that. We are just getting started, but if you want to check it out, it can be viewed at Pictures by Pape Dubuque Photographers Google+ Page. I will post something on our Facebook page, and maybe do a mass mailing to our contact list when we get a little farther on it. Getting some contacts in our circles will be helpful with our SEO.
We also produced our first screencast. We put together a 15-minute tutorial on navigating the picturesbypape.com website, and viewing and ordering pictures. We set up a gallery, with a link in the menu bar under "Prices & Instructions" entitled "Video Instructions." You can view it by clicking on this link:
Ideas we have for future screencasts include:
If you have suggestions for other tutorials, send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We haven't been doing much with our Zazzle store because we are working with some people to start printing T-Shirts locally. We have a domain name purchased, but we want to create a professional website and have to get some shirts printed and some pictures taken for display. More to come on that.
That should do it for now. We appreciate the support we get from all of you!
