Easy Way to Handle Discount Requests for Photo Booth Owners

DISCOUNT REQUESTS FOR PHOTOBOOTH OWNERS

Running my photo booth business has been an amazing journey! I love supporting local events and making them unforgettable. But recently, the number of requests for discounts and sponsorships has exploded! My inbox was overflowing, and I was spending more time managing these requests than actually running my business. I needed a better way to handle this, and I found one!

I’m super excited to share this trick that has worked wonders for me! Implementing our Discount/Sponsorship Eligibility Assessment process—it's been a total game-changer.

 

Here's how it works:

All our discount or sponsorship requests will need to fill out a form.

Here's the secret...
  1. It requires the client to put in effort for a discount or sponsorship. Ideally, the form's length will discourage those who aren't serious.
  2. If they do fill it out, they must answer the challenging question: "Why do you deserve a discount?"—a question we often want to ask but hesitate to because it feels impolite. The form, however, can ask it without any discomfort.
  3. Completing the form provides us with all the necessary information to make a well-informed decision.

Once they submit the form, we let them know it will take 5-10 days to get an answer.

 

This method has been incredibly effective! I want to share with you the form PLUS the email we send with it.

 

 

 

Here’s how to set this up.

  1. Get the form!




  2. Click on  “Make a Copy”

  3. You may be asked to update the file uploader. Hit restore.

  4. Double-click this text field.
  5. Type "Your Company Name"

  6. Click on “Responses”

  7. Click on the 3 dots

  8. Click on “Get email notifications for new responses”

  9. Click on “Send”

  10. Click on the Link Icon

  11. Check the “shorten URL” box

  12. Click "Copy" to copy the link so you can send it to any of your clients or paste it into an email.
