2 cool things!
I'm at LAX on my way to Boston for the PPANE convention but I just had to tell you about two cool things that just happened.
My mom used to always say that God blesses people who bless people and here's a cool story that just happened to me.
You know from my post below that I signed up for the Kiva organization two days ago and I committed to loan $500. Just a few hours later I received a random check in the mail for $5,000! I shot a wedding exactly a year ago and I shot it for free because the father of the bride has helped me so much over the years. A year later they said they still hadn't figured out how to thank me for the pictures so they were sending me this check as as gift! Wow! How amazing is that!
The next thing is that Showit-DVD has been cranking (19 orders yesterday) and we just had our first order from Japan! All our other products are instant download off the internet but it's kinda cool to think we are actually shipping something from the U.S. in this little box and it's gonna go all the way to Japan so a couple can enjoy and preserve their Showit slideshow.
We've found that the best way to sell Showit DVD's is to tell them that you can only keep the Showit Web show up for a few weeks and if they'd like to preserve the slideshow forever they can click on the order button at the bottom and order a show.
