Leveraging the power of social media technologies to bring customers to your photo retailing and service business is not only possible, but one of the key areas of growth to your bottom line.

What are the most promising strategies to attract even more consumers to design their first photo book – today and tomorrow. Nicoletta A. Zongrone, General Manager, Retail Systems Solutions, Consumer Digital Imaging Group and Vice President Eastman Kodak Company, Rochester, New York, USA It's time to smile There’s a good deal to smile about in photo retailing. Digitally savvy consumers are coming back into stores – and not just for 4x6 prints. Today’s instant kiosks, high-performance order stations and new dry lab systems allow consumers to create stunning photo keepsakes, such as the Kodak Photobook and Kodak Picture Movie DVD, as well as collages, calendars and greeting cards – instantly right in the store. Kodak’s Nicki Zongrone will talk about how advances in photo kiosk technology and new digital dry lab systems are creating much richer consumer experiences, while allowing retailers to lower operational costs and at the same time, sell more photo services and promote premium products that drive higher margins.

Rainer Bauer, CEO of Imaging Solutions AG, Regensdorf, Switzerland Upselling memories Selling memories starts with selling standard prints. With falling print prices and shrinking margins, it is essential to make it easy for consumers asking for prints to order value-added picture products. Imaging Solutions‘ CEO presents a compelling concept to increase the value of standard print orders with customer oriented upselling solutions at minimum additional costs. Helen Wilson-Cremer, Director International Business Development, Personello GmbH, Homburg/Saar, Germany Virtual product videos – the next generation in photo gift marketing People refrain from buying photo gifts for two reasons: 1. They haven‘t got a suitable photo and 2. They don‘t want to buy something they haven‘t seen. Embedding the customer‘s image into a product video solves this problem creating a virtual shopping experience that sells. Stephen Giordano, Sr., Chairman and CEO, Lucidiom Inc., Vienna, VA, USA Moving your business and customers beyond print Profitable photofinishing has evolved from 4x6 prints and enlargements, to personal publishing and now to the brave new world of social expres- sion.
