As a professional photographer you work with great and interesting clients, from wedding parties and brides, newborns, beautiful family portraits and other great subjects. You have edited them, perfected every frame and eliminated every blemish. Then you likely burned them on to a CD or DVD to deliver to your client. Voila, you have done your job and you are proud of your work!
However, the consumer market is slowly moving towards a more disc drive-free existence. And it can all be related directly to Apple’s decision to release its line of Macbooks without any disc drives built in. As a photographer, take note of this recent development – USB drives are the one constant amid all the technology changes. With growing options for professional, custom USB flash drives and exquisite packaging, you can give your clients a perfectly packaged portfolio they can use again and again!
When presenting your content to customers, custom flash drives are the way to go. Right off the bat, there may be some concern about that suggestion. So really, why even consider USB drives? The most important factor to think about is the speed at which technology develops. As a photographer, you can’t afford to offer an outdated format to customers who are constantly looking for the best and latest. Over the past years, flash drives have flooded the market that it has become a widely-used form of storage.
And with the threat of obsolescence forever plaguing optical media, it’s a good idea to stay ahead.
Another advantage of using flash drives is the price. Surprisingly, flash drives are available at low costs and low minimums with full printing included. The new Professional Photographer USB Drives section has a great selection of flash drives for a decent price that even decreases with higher volume orders. The orders can also be customized to include a variety of storage capacities, ensuring that you’re not left with an excessive quantity of units.
One last advantage to using flash drives is branding. Flash drives are highly customizable. Color, drive design, and the inclusion of logos all play a role in making sure that your brand gets advertised even after you finish a contract with your customers. A business that emphasizes thoughtful design can, for example, opt for a flash drive with a simple finish, capless design, and its logo engraved somewhere on the drive.
