Unlock #AllThePhotofy is Coming Soon!

You asked…We answered…(Or is it we asked, you answered?)

If you want to build a great business, you spend a bunch of time asking your customers how you’re doing, finding out what they like, what you can do better and making it so. We recently sent out an in-app survey to Photofy Users with a couple of simple questions.

  1. Would you recommend us to a friend?
  2. What features would you like to see added to Photofy to make it better?

We were really excited to learn that 9 out of 10 respondents said that they would totally recommend us to their friends! Whoop Whoop! This measure is known as Net Promoter Score and is commonly cited as one of the most accurate predictors of a healthy brand. Yay, we have that going for us!

Photofy and SIGGPAY Partner Up to Enhance Influencer Marketing

SIGGPAY is a quickly growing Nano Influencer Marketing Company that is giving everyday people the chance to monetize their social media accounts. They’re not looking for the influencers with millions of followers. They want the smaller numbers. The influencers that speak to their followers, not speak at them. Their goal is to build on the influencers that already have the trust of their community and leverage that trust to market local products and services.

Influencers sign up for SIGGPAY, and can choose from a selection of campaigns, and then “compete” for points based on their engagement and location of their social media points using check-ins and shares across the various social apps.

SIGGPAY recognized their users’ desire to create beautiful, branded images for their campaigns, and a partnership with Photofy was formed. Together with Photofy, SIGGPAY Influencers will be able to easily create professional, marketable images that will stand out among the “crowds” of other posts.

 

We are very excited with this partnership and are looking forward to working with SIGGPAY and their influencers!

Social Media Savvy Moms

By: Monica Brady
https://www.linkedin.com/in/mommybrain/

My family lives all the way across the country from the rest of our extended family, and thanks to my husband’s military career, we have friends across the globe. It’s tough to keep up with every event, all of the time, so social media is a great tool to quickly share our family events with our family and friends around the world.

I’m a photographer, so I love to take pictures, probably a little too much. My family doesn’t get to visit much because of the distance, so they really rely on me to share photos and let them know what’s going on! Whether it’s an awards ceremony, or a sports event, there is something in Photofy that I, or any social media savvy mom can use to create really fun images to easily post across all of your social media accounts.

That time we took a cruise to the Bahamas and our girls met their favorite characters…

I even shared the moment our new best friend arrived at our home…

first-place

And of course, something that I’ll keep on sharing until he is done with Triathlons, I love to show off all of my husband’s achievements in his latest multisport endeavors.

Photofy is super easy to use when it comes to enhancing and sharing your family’s excitement across your social media channels, and best of all.. It’s free!

“Epic Events” is an Awesome Graphic Pack for DJ and Event Content

Photofy has been a crucial tool for me when it comes to creating content and making awesome looking social media content. I had been a fan for a while before realizing that the company was right here in my home town of Raleigh, NC. In the even smaller world category, I actually knew the CEO! After a few meetings with John, I knew that I wanted to get more involved with such an amazing app that had helped me so much. Now it was my turn to help others!

This pack isn’t just for DJs! It’s for anyone that does epic events!

After some brainstorming and research, I realized that there weren’t a lot of DJ friendly “elements” available to add to my photos, especially if you are a mobile DJ or wedding DJ like myself. So that’s where I started, with creating different variations of the couple’s names, their wedding hashtag, some critical pieces of DJ gear and things like that. Then I just started coming up with silly things to add to people-shades, hats, etc. Next, the fine folks at Photofy started pulling in some other pieces that matched the look and feel of my “pack” and eventually the “Epic Events” pack was launched in late March 2018!

As soon as it went live, I contacted not only all of the DJs I know that I follow and that follow me, but I also reached out to countless others in the entertainment and hospitality industry-wedding planners, venue operators, cake makers, photographers, etc. They jumped on board almost immediately and I’ve seen some of their posts using the elements recently that are killer. Even in house here at Bunn DJ Company, we had a contest to see who could make the best Instagram post using the “Epic Events” pack. This pack isn’t just for DJs! It’s for anyone that does epic events! Check it out in the store (download the app, click the store icon in the upper right corner, then type “epic events” in the search bar. For only $4.99, it’s worth every penny! Happy posting!

Stuck in a funk? How Travel Fuels Creativity

Discover how to conquer creative roadblocks through adventure and passion projects.

Creative Funks. We’ve all been there. Designers, writers, producers, thinkers, entrepreneurs. As creatives, we are our biggest critics and as people who exercise our talents on a daily basis, we also require the need to exercise those neurons that help us function.

So what to do when in a rut? Make the world our gym and flex that creative energy. The notion that international travel experiences can open our minds to new ways of thinking is not as much a new concept as it is imperative to overcoming any form of a creative block. Neuroscientists and Psychologists have even begun to examine that spending time abroad may have the potential to affect mental change related to how the brain is wired and influenced by environment and habit. It is the one thing that can help us uncover new eras in personal artistic development and provide us with a more accurate and open-minded view of the world.

As a career creative and photographer, I have long felt the creative benefits of international travel. However, it’s not just about being abroad. It’s the critical process of multicultural immersion, engagement, and adaptation. That’s why each year I’ve vowed to myself, my soul and my creative mind to dive into these experiences. There is nothing as refreshing, as humbling and as scary as throwing yourself into the unknown than traveling abroad – and that freedom feeds directly back into our waves of inspiration and the work we give back to the world. The impact traveling has on one’s worldview allows one to do good work. Its purpose is to build a strongly acculturated sense of self. It has been one of the healthiest ways for me to nurture that creative spark through the cognitive flexibility of environment and human compassion.

“Creativity is power – and we have the ability to use it for good.”

To capture and share my experiences while traveling abroad, I started a journaling practice. Through this, I am able to craft storylines through photo, video and written content with the aspiration to inspire others and myself to live outside the world our own. This practice has helped shaped how I view the work and message I put into the world – and what a true gift the ability to share with others is.

Photofy has been a powerful tool in my journaling practice and curating the way in which others consume my work. It has granted me the ability to spend more time to discover and more time to focus on a message while providing a means to optimize such aesthetic. Through customization options for both individuals and businesses, Photofy gives users the keys to growing their brand or content on the go.

Screen Shot 2016-08-23 at 4.37.17 PMLake Atitlan, Guatemala A world untouched. My visit to Guatemala in Winter of 2014 served as a reminder to be mindful of how I, and we as humans, choose to consume. Highlighting the hidden impact our daily consumption has on lands and environments outside our own and the severe importance of doing our due diligence to lessen that impact.

Screen Shot 2016-08-23 at 4.37.26 PMQuepos, Costa Rica. No words. It’s a scary and humbling experience to be a minority in a foreign country, especially when it comes to language barriers. While visiting Costa Rica in the Fall of 2015 and traveling to a rural Costa Rican school to play and interact with the children, I’ve never been so frustrated with not knowing another language. Even with basic to intermediate Spanish speaking skills, it was heartbreaking to not know how to communicate with the children. Lesson learned: Do not take something as beautiful as language for granted nor expect that others should speak the way you do.

Time and ease are imperative to any traveler. Luckily, Photofy easily allows one to capture a moment and edit in real time using a computer or mobile device. Giving travelers peace of mind knowing they can spend more time embracing their curiosity and allowing their imaginations to take flight.

If you’re like me, your creative mind is never fully put to rest. For it is when we express our creativity through travel and experiences we allow space for transformation and the nourishment needed to feel refreshed and renewed. Those expressions are imperative for us to continue to do good work and supersede into all aspects of the ways we think and operate creatively.
