PRESS RELEASE: LiveBooks Introduces New Packages And Pricing
All new liveBooks Professional combines liveBooks’ most useful features with new pricing choices to maximize value for the professional photo industry.
San Francisco, CA. – October 18, 2007 — liveBooks, Inc., the leading provider of fully editable website solutions for professional photographers, announced it is releasing new packages and new pricing under the product name liveBooks Professional. The decision to revise and enhance their product line is based on the experience of servicing thousands of photographers over four years and recognizing that photographers have many common needs which could be addressed with a common feature set. In addition, they realize that each photographer has their own individual needs which require the flexibility to customize their web presence. Therefore, a robust feature set and custom design time are included with all three of the liveBooks Professional packages— Unlimited, Select and Basic .
All liveBooks Professional packages include a standard set of features designed to give photographers the flexibility they need to create their optimal website. These include but are not limited to:
- The ability to deliver a custom professional website through the use of custom design time with the liveBooks in-house design staff, large highquality images and intuitive navigation.
- Tools to reach and service the photographer’s audience such as image descriptions, automatic ghost HTML creation for search engine optimization, shopping cart, webstats and downloadable PDF portfolios.
- An easy-to-use online admin tool to control the content of the website including drag-and-drop portfolio creation and editing, custom styling and uploadable content pages.
- A rich multimedia experience including video upload and the ability to add music which can be defined on a page by page or per portfolio basis. These features have been combined to empower photographers to clearly communicate their unique brand in a way that will help them to get work and grow their businesses.
Beyond the standard feature set, photographers will choose between one of three packages based on the scale of the site they are creating. These packages are differentiated by the amount of included design time, as well as the number of portfolios and pages within the site. For the ultimate in flexibility, the Unlimited package offers photographers a choice in image sizing including the largest image area along with virtually unlimited portfolios, menu pages, external links and password-protected client areas. The Select package offers a smaller image size with enough portfolios, menu pages and links to meet the needs of many photographers today. The Basic package provides the minimal number of portfolios and menu pages and is an ideal choice for the emerging photographer beginning a career in photography.
