I am sure Focal is the future. Focal helped me market my family and headshot sessions, and I grew my business by $12,000 in a year. Everything is clearly laid out and easy for customers to book.

Give customers the information they want

Are customers constantly asking you: How much does it cost? What do I get?

Lachlan Shum

Co-Founder, CEO of Focal

It’s a common issue in photography, but the answer is simple: a customer can't buy something until they know what you’re offering.

Now, you’re probably thinking: but I have my prices listed right on my website.

But if that’s all you are listing — X number of photos, X number of hours for $Y — you’re doing your work a disservice.

Imagine you walk into a car dealership and the salesperson says, “here’s a car with 150 horsepower, four doors and a steering wheel. Now here’s what it costs.” Sure, it’s something, but what kind of an impression does that leave? Where’s the fun stuff? How is it going to make you feel? How did they design the car to kick ass, make you feel amazing, and get you home safely?

As a photographer, you’re selling an experience — not X number of photos. Your packages need to instill that experience in your customers’ minds. You want them to imagine what it will be like to book that package with you. You want them to get excited about the shoot — from your approach to lighting, to your winning personality, to the way you direct them in front of the camera.

That’s why Focal helps you build detailed, ready-to-book packages so your clients don’t have to ask “how much,” or “what will the shoot be like?” (And you don’t have to answer the same repeated inquiries.) Our Packages showcase your work in a way that wins customers over, by giving them what they want to know - so they don't have to ask. They're just ready to book.

FAQs

Let's answer some of your questions

I already have an investments page on my website. How is Focal different?

We’ve designed our packages to go beyond the usual “X number of photos for $Y” formula. We feel it’s missing a major piece of the picture: telling your story as a photographer — and in turn, conveying value. What makes you special as a photographer? What do you do that nobody else can do? We’ve built our packages to put your story front and center.

Imagine you’re shopping for a camper van. The first three places you visit list only the price and the miles per gallon. But then you come to a lot where the salesperson takes you into an RV, makes a fist, and punches the roof. They tell you how the RV was built to withstand heavy snowfall during the winter. The roof is stronger and more durable than other models. Which camper van are you going to remember?

Which Focal plan is for me: Starter or Partner?

We designed the Focal Starter plan to be an end-to-end solution for newer photographers looking for a professional system to start commercializing their business. It includes all the tools you would need to start offering and booking shoots — and is so simple you can get set up in a day.

Our Partner plan is geared toward seasoned photographers who are booking more than $500 in shoots per month. It allows you to take full control of your branding by using your own custom domain and a zero % fee on bookings you take through the platform.

How does Focal help me book more clients?

Instead of being ghosted after sending your prices, or having customers visit your website and bouncing, Focal provides you with tools to convert more of those leads. Our Storefront and Packages convey what make you unique as a photographer — a formula that leads to better matches with your clients and happier, long-term customers.

What happens when I schedule a demo?

Our demo calls usually go 30-45 minutes. We want to get to know you and your business before we explore how Focal could improve your workflow. Once we've introduced ourselves, we'll take you through a demo of the platform to show you exactly how you would set up your Storefront, connect it to your website, and take bookings. Then, if you're ready to sign up, we'll apply a free trial of the Partner plan and take you through the registration process step-by-step. Most photographers get their Focal Storefront set up and integrated into their website the same day and are taking bookings by the evening.
