Pros: This software has changed my life. Seriously. Gone are the days that I feel like I'm not good enough. Using this software has made me THE professional to my clients. It's also given me a larger purpose to my business. This has been hands down the best thing I've EVER done as a photographer for my business. The subscription fee is so nominal to the amount of money that I've made from using swift galleries and the personal business coaching that it provides is so helpful. In the year that I've been using swift galleries I've made the most money that I've ever made as a photographer. I can't imagine not using swift galleries!

Cons: There are some aspects of the sale meeting that I don't like - maybe it's because I'm not spending as much time in the sale meeting as I do in the design phase. For instance, when customers want to make changes to the wall gallery I can't figure it out and often times have to go into a separate tab to make the changes, save the suggestion, and then go back to the IPSmeeting. I also wish there was a way to totally create a gallery with your client just in those cases they don't like what you've created or the gallery creation goes a totally different way while with the client. But again, maybe this is because I spend less time in the sales meeting aspect rather than the design phase.

Overall: Can I say I love you guys even more? I was practically rock bottom (professionally speaking) very close to being introduced to swift galleries. I was thinking I was going to have to go back to teacher (AH THE HORROR) or get a different job in order to provide for my family. It was such a depressing time because obviously if i were to do something different then I'd get less time with my family. You guys have given me the tools to legitimately have a "work at home profession" and be there for my family - which was what my goal was all along, right? I've done countless webinars and followed so many photographers to try to get THE SECRETS to having a profitable photography business - but now??? I'm that photographer.

So thank you!!! :)

Kaitlin! This is amazing, thank you so much! We've had such a blast watching your business grow and it's only just begun! Thanks for being a member and a friend. :)

Also, you can totally do all of that stuff you mentioned (design during the Sales Meeting, etc.), let's jump on a call and I'll walk you through it.

Lifesaver for my business!

Pros: My 3 favorites things about this software are that it's super easy to use; it gives me the ability to actually SHOW my clients what their images will look like when displayed in their home; and their customer service is, hands-down, the most amazing, fantastic & helpful service I've ever encountered with any product.

Cons: The only con I found with this software ended up being changed in one of the updates, so now I'm perfectly happy! :)

Overall: Swift Galleries has been my business' lifesaver! The software has helped me sell so many beautiful wall galleries and prints to my clients because they actually get to see for themselves what their images will look like when displayed in their home. Any time I've had a question or problem pop up, the customer service has been downright ahhh-ma-zing! In addition to the software, Swift Galleries offers complimentary business courses which have taught me a ton about running a successful & thriving business & have given me the confidence to stop doubting my value & actually charge what I'm worth. In a single ordering session, I sold enough prints to cover over 50 years of my Swift Galleries subscription cost, so keeping this software for my business is a no-brainer.

Pros: I have used two other similar software products for my photography business, but

Swift Galleries rises above both. There are several things that I like MOST about this product. First, it is very user friendly, easy to use, and very efficient. And, second, the service that the company owners provide to it's customers is above and beyond amazing!

Cons: There is nothing that I like LEAST. The company owners are always trying to make their product better for it's customers, and as they say-they are making it work, and then making it better.

Overall: The problem that I was having was an inefficient product while I had my sales sessions with my clients. The software was unpredictable and often did not work. When I switched to Swift Galleries, not only has it worked every time I have used it, but my clients love being able to see exactly how their images will look on the walls of their homes. But, the main thing that sold me on this product was the incredible service the company owners provide. They are genuine, willing to help, and are always just a phone call, email, or message away.

Pros: It changes the buying experience, helping clients to properly envision their gallery, and helping them purchase with confidence.

Cons: Still pretty clunky. Can't save mock-ups with clients, can't change all products simultaneously, doesn't auto-align. Overall, lots of fidgeting in front of the client. Software still needs some finessing.

Overall: The customer service/support has been outstanding. I look forward to a smoother software experience, but feel it's worthwhile to invest in the meantime. Takes business to the next level.

Pros: I do like the ability to show my clients how their images would enhance their homes before they made a final decision. I like how it positions me as a professional and an expert in how they can optimize their images.

Cons: I would rather be able to emulate actual rooms in their homes than a template with the design of how the images would be hung.

Overall: It is better, indeed, than shoot and burn.

Thanks so much for the review, DeeLee! Just a quick note that you can, in fact, easily upload and calibrate your own clients' room photos in Swift Galleries to be able to show them their photos in their actual rooms.

Let me know if you'd like us to show you how in a one-on-one call! If not, here's the documentation on how to do it: http://academy.swiftgalleries.com/working-with-the-gallery-designer/working-with-rooms/uploading-a-room-photo

Thanks again!
