Word-of-mouth advertising is the best any business can hope for. It is the only kind that shows genuine enthusiasm from happy customers. In the mobile age, professional photographers have the opportunity to produce viral word-of-mouth advertising like never before. My Photo App helps photographers create branded digital photo albums for their happy customers. They can be stored on a smartphone and sent to friends in fractions of a second. This means your studio gets the exposure of an expertly-crafted viral ad, but with the authentic appeal of a live customer testimonial.
Version 6 is almost a complete rewrite of MyPhotoApp to make app building even faster and to provide you even more power to control the look and feel of your custom social mobile apps. Check out this video to give you a quick view of how the new builder works.
People check their phones up to 150 times a day. Having a personal app with the clients image as the icon on a mobile device is incredibly powerful. They are a constant reminder of your brand and a constant opportunity for them to share in-person with friends, family and acquaintances.
Here is a quick demo of MyPhotoApp. Works on iPhones, iPads, iPods, Android phones and Android tables.
My Photo App is effective everywhere... If you are not using apps... your competitors are! Your app images are stored in SoftLayer's Global Content Delivery Network to provide exceptional delivery of your apps ... worldwide!
Today you must be active with social media and MyPhotoApp integrates with that quite nicely. Prominent on the app are social sharing buttons. This makes it incredibly easy for people to share their apps with their friends and family. Placement on the top is a constant reminder to share. If you prefer, with flexible placement of the icons, you can be a little more subtle and place the icons at the bottom of the app for a more passive approach.
MyPhotoApp has comprehensive statistics. It records the various types of devices as well as how many times the app was viewed, installed, and the number of unique devices it was installed on. You can track how successful your apps are being shared and if your app is tied to a model program, how effective your models are. These statistics give you the metrics to improve your marketing.
In addition to individual app analytics, you can get the total of your apps so you can see the cumulative effects of apps for your brand.
MyPhotoApp apps are specifically designed and optimized for mobile devices.
Mobile marketing is a must in today's world because in 2014 it is projected that there will be 8 times more sales of mobile devices than computers or laptops.
If you are not hitting the mobile segment, you are missing out.
MyPhotoApp has 13 photo layout options to choose from and powerful control over branding and color scheme to make an incredibly powerful social marketing tool that complements your brand.

Professional photographers have always relied on word-of-mouth advertising from happy clients to bring in new business. It makes perfect sense. Photography is a delicate art, and no two studios are going to shoot their subjects in exactly the same way. Nothing can convince more prospects to come in and have their photos taken than a glowing review from a trusted friend.
However, genuine word-of-mouth endorsements have an expiration date. Clients are most eager to share their photos during the week following a shoot. This limited time window means that, while generally very effective, word-of-mouth referrals can only spread so far from the original client. This forces many photographers to work extra hard to turn out more and more overjoyed customers who will pass their business card along to others immediately following their session.
Technology has made it easier than ever to capitalize on the initial satisfaction your photography clients feel following a session. Through the use of smartphones and social networks, their positive experience can spread like a virus to countless thousands of targeted prospects with the same effectiveness of traditional word-of-mouth advertising. Best of all, it has a much greater potential, and absolutely zero time sensitivity.

I’ve built posing APPs as well as lighting APPs for my personal use. I’ve also created clothing/color suggestion APPs. I’ve not done it yet but am planning to create a promo app to send to clients as well as a ‘Seniors 2013′ congratulations APP that I will send to all my 2013 seniors thanking them…. It will include MY favorite photo from all the sessions… Along with a coupon for 2014 referrals.
Brilliant job with the app.
I was using Sticky Albums but felt that it took way too much work + time to setup an album–MyPhotoApp takes a fraction of the time (i’d guess only 25% of the time it did with StickyAlbum).
When I first heard about the iPhone photo apps (from another company) I thought that the last thing I needed was another thing to add to my workflow but as the year has progressed I’ve seen my senior clients using Facebook less and less and Twitter more and more. I was concerned because I couldn’t share more than one image on Twitter at a time. I didn’t know how I was going to stay digitally visible.
I tried MyPhotoApp because of a promotional price and especially because of the 30 day money back guarantee. I was blown away at how quick and easy it was to produce an app. I already create “iWallets” for my clients which they receive on CD-ROM after the sale. I now simply use those same iWallets to create an app for them as well. It’s usually done and e-mailed to them before they get out of my parking lot. I post MyPhotoApps to my FB page and tweet them as well.
I have had many clients ask how they can get that “cool phone app” during their sales meeting so I know that it’s getting buzz. For the ease of use and the great price this is something that you shouldn’t pass up!
MyPhotoApp is mindlessly easy to use!
I was using a competitor’s app but felt that it took way too much effort and time to setup an album. Setup is fast and takes a fraction of the time. The auto crop seems just about perfect every time. Arrange the photos, click, and you’re done!
One huge benefit for the viewer or client, is the app loads much quicker than the competitors too. You’re not kept waiting.
Seniors absolutely love the app! They carry their cell phones with them all the time and so they have their senior photos with them too.
A particular feature I really like is the statistics. The first 30 or so senior apps uploaded have been viewed more than 1000 times! Each viewer sees my business logo, all my contact information and, and can visit my website in one click. It’s as if my clients are promoting my business with each person they share the app.
Jim, this is a Killer App! Thanks so much!
I love My Photo App because its so easy to create your own App, takes couple of minutes all together and you are done.
I tried the competition and I had to follow instructions and still didnt get it, it took more than 10 minutes and then I left it unfinished, no way that would be something I would be willing to go trough every time.
My Photo App is intuitive, the interface is not the prettiest there is but who cares about that, the ease of use and what client sees is important. And it gets five stars in that regard.
I have actually booked new sessions by gifting each client who spends 1000 their own app. I am excited about the 2 new features of share by text (all my seniors communicate via txt) plus clickable image linked to url. I am going to now tie all my offers to a “client type” specific url.
I also have been using this app to create a set of poses I would like to use for a session. A great way to quickly remind me as it seems I am starting to need that more and more….
Even though I have just started using MyPhotoApp it is already bringing big dividends with my clients. One client showed it off to a friend and the friend called to book the next day. This will be another tool that will fit very well in my marketing.
I have been using it! Love. I show off my favorite senior shoot on my phone all the time from my phone. Everyone thinks it is cool that I have my own app.
I finally made an app for my Sister-in-law and she shared it on Facebook. Keep in mind I recently posted her pics and tagged her but for some reason the app created more buzz. One of her friends commented….
“definitely love your pics!!!!! I have got to get an appt with Jayme!!!”
So I just sent the friend a message and told her my number and thanks for compliment about pics, blah, blah
I am going to share my app on my personal page too. I have one on my phone that has my personal family pictures to show off.
This is a GREAT idea. I had been working on color palettes using pictures of my more stylish clients, thinking to incorporate them into a brochure or flyer. But creating an app is a fantastic idea. Hmmmm, I guess I could do a “Welcome” app, or a “What to Expect” app…
I just checked this out and it was SO EASY to use (and I regret to say that I, a former computer programmer, am easily confused by technology these days), I signed up and created a test app and had it on my iphone in 7 minutes. Definitely signing up — thanks for the great deal.
I tried Sticky and My Photo App at the same time. Within a few minutes I created an app with My Photo App. 25 minutes after I downloaded Sticky, I still couldn’t figure out how to upload photos, so I said Forget That and never looked back. I love My Photo App!
Wow. That's some crazy good customer service Jim.
