ABOUT US

BACKGROUND

aPhotoFolio was founded in 2008 by Rob Haggart who had spent the previous 8 years as the Director of Photography for Men’s Journal and Outside Magazine. When hiring photographers to shoot for those magazines he looked at thousands and thousands of websites and over the years developed a list of user friendly features that would become the foundation of aPhotoFolio.

EXPERIENCE

Several of the top commercial and editorial photographers in the industry became our very first customers and have helped guide aPhotoFolio to develop features that can only be found here. As we’ve grown from a handful to thousands of professional photographers using our software we’ve listened to their needs the entire way.

PHILOSOPHY

We come from the client perspective and our goal is to build sites that they find enjoyable to use and easy to operate. Along the way we’ve incorporated features photographers needed to make a strong impression. Our software has been perfected over the years by listening to both the user and the owner of the website.

VISION

Websites should be easy to operate and feature rich without fuss. We started by inventing the only customizable template in the industry and we went on to quickly pioneer new features for our users first. Our high profile customers forced us to become relentless with the details and polish. Their clients wanted simplicity and ease of use. This is our lifelong pursuit. We stay at the cutting edge with constant feature releases, we dig into the details and polish, then simplify so your clients keep coming back.

TESTIMONIALS

I am so happy right now, how often do you do something work-related and say  ’wow, that was so much easier than i thought it would be” I love the interface.

Diana Mulvihill, Website Owner

I love that I am not a computer website designer and the ability for me to customize my site is so intuitive.  Your video tutorial’s are great.  I am really happy that I chose your platform.

Lyssa, Website Owner

Just wanna say you guys have amazing customer service. I have never dealt with a company that was so responsive and communicative and never condescending on tech issues.

Jen, Website Owner

I love the back-end and have never had an easier time updating and customizing my site.

Kristianne, Website Owner

I am so happy I have you and your team watching my website back. Your product is fantastic, but who new the support would be as amazing.

Len, Website Owner

My clients and a few prospects have commented on how easy it is to view my work, including the video.

Steven, Website Owner

I am amazed at the control one has over your site template. I had never been interested in templates sites before now and I can see with a little more time, it will be like designing a site from scratch without having to do any programming.

Bruce, Website Owner

I was seduced by how spectacular the images looked on the websites.

Michael Clark, Website Owner

I wanted to let you know that your product is bar none, the best available as is your staff. I could literally file a support ticket and (not including the automated response) would often times have a response in less than two minutes.

Erik Skaar, Website Owner

I love my portfolio on A PhotoFolio because it allows me the amount of control and customization that I would want in a website without having to keep my head in a book for a month learning Flash or HTML.

Mechelle LaVelle, Website Owner

My new aphotofolio site is now live, and I just wanted to tell you how fantastic the service is and how excited I am to be using it. Everything from initial implementation through tech support and going live was a pleasure.

Luke Copping, Website Owner

A Photo Folio is without question the best website I’ve ever had. I launched only recently, but already see an increase in inquiries from a variety of client types.

Kevin Brown, Website Owner

APhotoFolio.com – quickly becoming known as the Lamborghini of professional portfolio sites

Nick Lovell, Web Client

Launched my site this week and sent out an email promo to my advertising client list on my new site and landed a $20k ad job within 30 minutes. Your site paid for itself!

Douglass, Web Client

Building your own website is so yesterday, too much work, time and $$$. After looking all over I decided to use A Photo Folio.

JoSon, Website Owner

Charlie Ussery on the AFP Help Desk was great – he got to my ticket very quickly, was personable, and couldn’t have made it easier.

Moya, Website Owner

Thoroughly enjoying my relaunch experience with APF. You may be interested to know that with a new site from A Photo Folio, I’m looking at 75% new visitors whose stay on my site went from 3 to 7 minutes and a bounce rate that has gone from 50% to 15%.

Craig, Website Owner

Every single thing that I do in terms of promotional or marketing is to try and drive people to the website. Your website today is the most important marketing tool that you’ve got. You want to make sure you’ve absolutely got a great website.

Brian Daniels, Website Owner

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1.How much does the service cost?

There are now 3 options:

1. Pay $1000 upfront and then $17/month for hosting, maintenance, upgrades and support.

2. Pay $250 x 4 months upfront then $17/month for hosting, maintenance, upgrades and support.

3. Pay nothing upfront and $34/month for hosting, maintenance, upgrades and support.

*Yes, we know you can buy a website for $9 a month. This is not a $9 website. We have features that can only be found here and we are invested in your success, not the success of investors (that’s why they cost $9). Let us prove it to you.

2.Do you have print sales and or licensing?

You have 3 options for print sales and licensing:

1. We have an inquiry button that can be added to all images and video which allows people to contact you directly about licensing and print sales (bespoke sales).

2. We have integrated FotoMoto into the site which allows you to setup a store and makes sales directly on the website.

3. You can easily link off our APF site to many of the e-commerce companies in the world and even embed a search box on a text page for convenience.

3.Are there any long-term contracts or cancellation fees?

No. The hosting of your site is month-to-month service. You can cancel at any time. In order to receive a refund of the onetime fee cancel within 31 days of purchase.

4.I need a domain name do you provide those?

We recommend namesecure.com, mydomain.com and networksolutions.com for purchasing domain names (Note: you can use any service you like for this). We do not provide domain registration, but do provide hosting and connection to email, so make sure you only register a domain name with them.

5.Do you backup the websites?

Absolutely, and we keep a copy of all the sites in a secure location on tape (double redundant). We perform backups every single night.

6.Can I make changes to the site after it is live?

Yes, in fact the site is always live we just keep it on a temporary url that cannot be searched until you are ready to make it live on your own url. You can change anything you want at any time.

7.Do you provide email?

We can connect your website to Gmail for business (Google Apps) or you can use email from a domain registrar like network solutions who generally offer it cheaper than google apps.

We do not directly provide email because email is mission critical for businesses and doing it right is actually quite difficult. I would be very hesitant to use email from a company that doesn’t specialize in it, because there’s a huge difference between sending email and delivering email. Deliverability means your email lands in the inbox. You’d be surprised at how many emails don’t make it to their destination if not handled correctly. Don’t make this mistake with your business. Work with a company like Google that are experts in email deliverability.

8.Are the sites SEO-friendly?

They are very friendly, in fact. Our team has expertise in optimizing websites for search engines. Here are just a few features that ensure your site will be visible and well-ranked:
1. Easily control your site’s browser title, description and meta information.
2. We use best-practices for embedding content, ensuring search engines crawl your pages.
3. Every site is built in HTML with search engine-friendly URLs and properly tagged images.
4. We can optionally install a WordPress blog, which search engines love..
5. All sites can easily be connected to social media (twitter, facebook, linkedin, instagram, etc.) which is powerful for SEO

9.Is there a discount for 2nd and 3rd sites?

Yes. We offer subsequent (2nd, 3rd, 4th…) site purchases at $500 plus $17/month each. After you purchase your first site with us you can take advantage of this whenever you like. Simply submit a support ticket with your request and they will send you a payment link.

10.Can I add my own font to my site?

Of course you can, typography is very important to us and our clients. You will need to provide the font in in .ttf (or .otf) and .woff formats for embedding. We have also hand selected 36 of the best google fonts that are pre-installed with all sites.
