There are other ways to earn with Zebra Instant besides just prints. Smartphones are bursting at the seams with photos, and the personalized gift industry in the US is projected to grow to over $3 billion by 2022. Yet most retailers don’t have a way to capture this opportunity. Good news: Zebra Instant is designed to help you offer consumers a way to shop for the personalized merchandise they want. And you’ll earn money on every order. Let me show you how simple it is.

1. GET THE TEXT Once your customers get their prints, they'll receive a text message with a link inviting them to shop for photo gifts.

2. SHOP Once they tap the link, they enter our store. There, they can pick which products to buy. The customers can see how their photos will look on all the products.

3. FINE-TUNE With a tap of a button, they can fine-tune the products to make them just right. Our system makes it easy for your customers to rotate and mirror the image to fit the product just right.

4. PURCHASE Our checkout process is very simple. Your customer adds their billing, shipping, and credit card info—then voila! You just made a profit.

5. SHIP Our fulfillment partners receive the order and then it is printed, packed, and shipped. We send your customer a tracking number via email or text as soon as the order is shipped. Orders arrive in about a week. I’m sure you’re wondering how much money you can make off of this. Next time, I’ll show you how you make the profit on every order. I’ll also tell you about fulfillment and share our full product catalog. Stay tuned...

Besides creating a new revenue stream from photo printing, Zebra Instant enables you to grow your opt in text message list, which can be a very valuable marketing asset.

Text message (or SMS) marketing—the use of targeted text messages to advertise or promote a product, service, or event—is an incredibly effective way to get your message out.

With open rates as high as 99%, texting has a higher ROI than almost any other marketing channel.

But why exactly is text messaging so powerful in comparison with other forms of digital and print media?

Texts are popular: 95% of mobile phones can receive text messages and 97% of young adults use text messaging regularly.

Texts are intimate: Unlike any other media, every text message is considered important. In fact, text messaging is the most frequently used medium for personal written communications for adults under 35.

Texts are NOT ignored: Less than 5% of marketing emails are ever opened, and even less are actually read; an unparalleled 97% of SMS marketing messages are read.

Texts are immediate: People read new text messages almost immediately. Other forms of communication don’t even come close to astonishing numbers like these:

90% of text messages are read within 3 minutes of reception 98% of texts are read within an hour 99% of texts are read eventually OK, that’s great, but how do you use Zebra Instant to collect phone numbers and up my text marketing game?

It starts with a free print offer, which you advertise to your customers using in-store signage.

And to get their free instant prints, customers text their photos to Zebra Instant.

And as soon as they do-- voila! You have their phone number.

Importantly, we want to make sure that the customers are actually interested in your your offers and that you play nice with the Federal Communication Commission (the FCC), so we automatically send an FCC-compliant message that looks like this: 📷You can customize this message from your Zebra Instant control panel with messages specific to your brand.

Or you can upsell your customers on popular photo merchandise with this automated message sent right after they get their print. 📷Unsubscribing is easy -- simply reply “stop” to be immediately unsubscribed and removed from the list.

Once you have collected the number, you can start sending your offers to your list.

I will go over that process in our next episode

Stay tuned.

Do you remember what getting your film developed was like?

For me, it was a romantic experience filled with anticipation of seeing what would come out of the 36 precious shots.

How many of those 36 prints would turn out to be any good? Half, if I was lucky.

Anticipation was followed by regret for the not-so-great shots destined for the trash.

With today’s smartphone technology, anticipation and romance have given way to instant gratification.

The few photos we do keep are very special moments that a lot of us want to be turned into tangible memories we can touch and gift.

But, getting prints off your phone is still surprisingly hard.

You still have to spend at least half an hour at Walgreens, CVS or Costco to get just a few prints. Or spend $50 or more for an instant print camera like the popular Fuji Instax.

It's just not worth the effort for most of us.

But today, I can do it in under 3 minutes with Zebra Instant.

Zebra Instant Text-to-Print technology makes turning photos into prints and photo gifts super simple and fun, just like texting a friend.

Watch this 1-minute demo and see it for yourself.
