The first picture we take of your guest gets registered into our system using artificial intelligence to connect the look of the person with their cell phone number. This data is safely secured as we add your logo, artwork and text “tags” to the image then send it right to the guests phone as a text message.
They love it and post on facebook right from your event.
Later on when we take a second picture of that same guest, our system already knows them, so it adds your artwork overlay to the new photo and once again and sends it to their phone automatically.
They love the second photo too, so they post it on Instagram.
Our photographers are well-trained on how to shoot images that get posted. PortraitLinks founder and CEO is a well respected pro photographer who’s work you have seen in major ad campaigns and magazine pages over the years. Guests love our style of photos and well over 60% of the will post at least one photo we take. Most events, we average over 80%, and half of the guests post more than one photo of ours giving you thousands of impressions.
A few minutes later, we take a fun group photo that includes the same guest with some new friends they made at your event. Our photo team sees them and creates a group shot of eight faces. The photo flows into our system where it is enhanced with your graphic overlay and it’s sent to all eight to their phones automatically. There’s no need to reenter their phone number, the PortraitLink system already knows their phone number. This allows us to move freely at your event and shoot hundreds of photos. We charge you by the hour and theres no limit on the amount of photos we can take. A busy corporate event that has 300 guests will take us three hours of shooting time and will produce approximately 450 to 650 photos delivered. If 80% post at least one photo, that results in 440 honest, organic posts onto facebook and instagram which is the most powerful marketing strategy there is right now. Keep in mind that most of your guests have at least 600 connected friends on those social platforms which means your event photos reach over 260,000 people on average.

How much setup before the event is needed?. Each photo we send to each guest arrives as a text message. That text has a hyperlink in it that will direct the guest to their own photo viewing page that we create for each guest to hold all their photos in one webpage. This photo gallery offer more areas for you to deliver your branding voice or a marketing message. It has a page header area and a page footer area that will accept a graphic of your choice. We’ll add your logo and marketing text headline to the gallery page then send you a test photo for your approval. To gather all that info, we like to meet with you for 30 minutes to help load our system with your custom branding voice. We will create the graphic overlay that is placed over each photo for $100., or you can create it yourself following our specs. Next we will get the text you want on the guests photo viewing page and some more artwork for the header and footer at no charge. Finally, we will ask you which webpage you would like the “learn more” hyperlink to direct the guests to. It’s fast and powerful.

At the end of each event, we shut down our processor and offload all the data and pictures to an offline secure storage port. The cell phone info is deleted with no possibility of a security issue. Not even we have the ability to see the full cell number once it’s entered into the system. As our client, you can arrange in advance to buy the photos, but not the data. Rest assured, your guests data is safe.
