recommends this product to every photographer who wants to have the
best possible research for pricing their photography. It's a must
have program and will bring great clarity to your photography promotion
and contract negotiations. One of the most frequent questions in photography
relates to "HOW MUCH SHOULD I CHARGE..?" You won't have
to ask anyone that question again if you invest in yourself and purchase
this program. It's a great asset to photographers and image makers..!
ALSO see latest version of fotoBiz and look for the special pricing
on the package of both fotoBiz and fotoQuote combined.
someone wants to use one of your photos, you don't just need a number
pulled out of a hat, you need help. You need fotoQuote, the industry
standard price guide for stock and assignment photography!
FotoQuote is the only source of pricing information for photographers
that gives you powerful Coaching help in every one of its 218 pricing
categories. FotoQuote not only helps you come up with a fair price
for your image license, but also gives you the inside information
you will need to help you close the sale.
Numbers by themselves don't mean anything if you can't convince your
client that your image is worth what you are asking.
There are over 80 NEW categories in this version of fotoQuote for
a total of 218! If you need to find a price, you're likely to find
it in fotoQuote.
Everything you need for pricing and negotiating is at your fingertips
with fotoQuote. FotoQuote's Stock Coach helps you with negotiating
your sales, and every one of fotoQuote's categories has a Usage Tips
section full of information about the specific category you are negotiating.
The rights being requested by clients are getting more complicated,
and the usage tips help you stay on track with your negotiations.
In the fotoQuote Assignment pricing you get information on assignment
rates in large and small markets throughout the US. The Assignment
Coach is so full of information that it's like having a pricing seminar
built into the program. It also gives you negotiating suggestions
on how to deal with clients who are requesting all rights to the images
you make on your assignments.
For this version we spent seven full months looking at every source
of pricing that we could find, contacting photographers, going through
the pile of notes and feedback from our customers, and scouring web
sites and bulletin boards to see what kind of problems photographers
were having with pricing, and what kind of solutions were being suggested
to solve them.
Keep Notes for Each Category
Each of fotoQuote's main categories now has a Notes window that lets
you keep multiple notes with sales information for each of your transactions
in that category. You can use these notes for reference the next time
you need to research the same usage.
The Magazine Database has hundreds of magazines with their circulation
and what they charge their clients for a full page color ad. You can
use this as a reference when you are quoting a job.
We have found that a printed quote with our "official" prices
on it is much more likely to be accepted than a verbal quote. FotoQuote
makes the preparation of these quotes a simple matter of clicking
a few buttons while you are looking up your prices.
Build License Agreements
The RightsWriter™ feature helps you build your licensing agreement
by selecting terms from drop down menus. The license description is
added automatically to your quote before you print it.
Display Prices in International Currencies
FotoQuote quotes prices based on our research in the US, but now these
prices can be displayed in international currencies; US, Canadian,
Australian and New Zealand dollars, British Pounds, and the Euro.

first option to recover your important data, before you try any
risky "repair" utility. An optional emergency bootable CD is also

Genius features advanced tools for resizing and moving of volumes
without reformatting, and sports a sector-editing tool to modify
the data on any sector of the drive -- powerful features that
will satisfy even the seasoned Mac experts.

a hard drive disaster occurs. Data Backup makes it easy to backup
