As I think you may already know, online shopping and supporting small business owners are a match made in my personal heaven. I’m also a big believer in gifts from the heart vs. just buying someone more “stuff”.
The back story on one of the best gifts from the heart…
Earlier this year, my youngest daughter was graduating from high school. Stay seated when I tell you I did not have a a photo album of her life for a display table at a big party that we did not have. It was a quiet family celebration as she finished her first year of college in what Georgia terms “joint enrollment” as a senior and she had not actually been active on the high school campus. Instead of an album, I had decided to make a slideshow that we would all watch at home after the graduation ceremony.
Since I AM a certified photo organizer, gathering photos from birth to 18 was pretty easy and I did that fairly quickly. Choosing music is what creates a bit of stress for me. But thanks to this very cool company called Songfinch, it was a beautiful experience.
Riley loved it. My big kids loved it. My husband loved it. It was really a gift for all of us to watch the baby of the family grow up in the slideshow. Granny said, “Play it again” and we watched it again and again over the weekend.
To make a long story short (I’m saving the long story for the podcast) and to get to the good stuff of creating something beautiful for your clients or for your own family, Rita and I partnered with Songfinch to bring photo organizers properly licensed music that works for any occasion!! We unveiled this truly special collaboration at our Nashville Platinum Training this past October.
These songs are so special and perfect for slideshows. It’s one of those WOW services we can surprise our VIP clients with and we don’t have to go down the long and confusing and expensive road about music licensing. When they hear the song in the background, it just fits. And the photos are the star of the show.
After you buy a song pair it with your favorite photos and create a slideshow, did you know that some of those fabulous Nixplay digital frames we have reviewed have a USB or SD card slot and you can play a video on the digital frame? It’s so cool!! I did that with Riley’s graduation slideshow and it’s so easy to click and play it without needing to be at my computer or needing a WiFi connection to watch it. My Edge digital frame has a speaker so I can hear the music with the photos. So simple and I love it.
There’s still time to click here and enter to win the Nixplay Iris frame!! retail value of $199.99
Forget the fruit cake or generic gift card. Make it personal and buy a Songfinch song and put together a slideshow for that special client. It’s a gift from the heart that people will LOVE.
And if you win the Nixplay digital frame…I’m still saying you should keep that as a gift for yourself! 😉
