Subscription-based Photogram Pro lets small businesses share special moments with their customers that drive word-of-mouth marketing and referrals
CHICAGO – November 18, 2011 – Timelines, Inc. today announced the launch of Photogram Pro, a mobile photo iPhone app for small businesses. With this app, businesses can easily capture and share professionally packaged photos with their customers. Photogram and its artist-designed themes were widely received by consumers when it launched in June 2011 and now Timelines has customized the tool to enhance marketing efforts for small businesses.
For a monthly fee of $14.99, businesses receive a customized theme with the company logo and contact information. Users can share up to four photos at a time and distribute Photogram Pros as often as they’d like via email, Facebook and Twitter, all from an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad device. For example, construction managers can now easily update clients on the progress of a building project, real estate agents can quickly show potential buyers relevant homes for sale, and restaurants can send customers pictures of a special menu item with an invitation to come and dine.
Dr. Kerry Salsberg, an optometrist, of Eyes on Sheppard in Canada uses Photogram Pro to share patients’ special moments. “In my business, prescribing a child’s first pair of glasses is a big event. Photogram Pro lets us capture and share this moment with the child’s parents quickly and easily. They love receiving these, and Eyes on Sheppard becomes remembered as part of this special moment. When they share the Photogram with their friends and family, we get presented in a wonderful light.”
Bob Armour, CEO of Timelines, added, “Photogram Pro introduces a simple, memorable and more personalized way that businesses can share information and engage with their customers. When customers receive a Photogram Pro, they‘re more likely to get excited and spread the word to their friends. It’s also an opportunity for businesses to get creative with the tool and connect with their valued customer base through pictures.”
