Forever Connected, part of New York-based Yearbooker, Inc. announced a patented breakthrough technology for the photo book & photo merchandise industry that effortlessly grows revenue and expands customer base.
Unveiled this month in San Francisco at Visual 1st, a global conference focused on innovation in photo and imaging technology, Forever Connected’s proprietary technology will transform photo book printers’ photo book into a shareable, interactive catalog and e-commerce platform, allowing friends and family to engage with memories and order photo merchandise directly from the shared digital edition.
“A big topic in our Photo Print panel at Visual 1st 2019 was how to increase revenue and avoid competing on price alone,” said Hans Hartman, Visual 1st chair. “Forever Connected’s innovative approach to virally upsell customers and their friends and family on appealing additional products, using their photobook photos, is a prime example of how to accomplish this.”
After its strong reception at Visual 1st, Forever Connected announced it is working with a number of partners globally, and product availability announcements will be announced early 2020 from well-known brands.
“To the photo booksellers, the Forever Connected platform is about connecting their products with their customers’ stories,” explained co-founder Fanny Davidson. It will let their customers easily order photo merchandise and keep their precious memories in touch.”
Yearbooker, Inc was founded in 2014 by Robert & Fanny Davidson to bring digital, sign-able school yearbooks to North American yearbook companies who provide those along with print sales. The Forever Connected Yearbook app has been made available to hundreds of schools and hundreds of thousands of students in all 50 states.
Yearbooker Inc. is making yearbooks affordable for all students with their 2020 program “EDAY: Everybody Deserves a Yearbook”. This digital-first program lets schools provide a full-quality digital yearbook for all students at only a few dollars per student. Families can order their print copy directly from the app, relieving the schools from the financial risk of minimum quantity print orders and the awkwardness of providing the printed yearbook to only some students on yearbook day.
With the addition of the new photo book product, the company has created innovation and advancement in a number of publishing industries.
