Tell us about the best event you ever did?
The team and I have had so many good events. Utah Jazz was a great event which stands out for us.
We built ski lift, elf on the shelf activations, with 2 personalized gave-away stations; including picture frames, and laser engraving on plates on site from our booths. We also built 5 giant Holiday balloons garlands!
Your 3 Tips for success in the photo booth industry:
#1 You are your brand
Establish a great brand presence. Know what differentiates you from others based on your own unique value.
#2 If you want to go corporate, you have to look corporate
Website, setup, professional attire and attitude. But first and foremost, buy high quality equipment; to make money you need to spend money.
#3 If you are good at something never do it for free
Free events are a great way to start out and build your experience, but once you have those 3 testers and case studies… it’s time to value yourself and your service offering!
