New Jiff-e-Books dealers get a free website when they purchase our Pro Business Starter Package.  This is a full e-commerce website preloaded with all of the Jiff-e-Books titles.  Dealers will be able to make their own changes and additions to the site.  If they want to add other personalized products, they can do so in just a matter of minutes. The Pro Business package includes 250 hard cover books, 250 soft cover mini books, software to print in Spanish and English, brochure printer software, and software to print unlimited personalized Santa and Easter letters.  Soon a demo site will be available for prospective dealers to try out.

Low-cost Marketing Idea

Recently an enterprising Jiff-e-Books dealer contacted a daycare center and made a mini book for each child in the center.  The dealer’s contact information was printed on the mini book covers.  The daycare center then gave the books to parents free of charge.  This was good public relations for the daycare center, plus it gave every parent a personalized book for their child that had the dealer’s contact information so that they could order more books.

Free Image Processing Software

If you’re putting children’s pictures in your personalized books, often you will need to crop a picture before making the book.  Since the pictures go inside a picture frame, the child’s picture needs to have the same aspect ratio as the frame – otherwise the picture may appear to be stretched or squashed.  All it takes is a photo editing program that will let you crop a picture and save it in the correct proportion.  There are many software programs you could use for this.  Fortunately, there is a very good free download called Serif Photo Plus.  You can download it at http://www.serif.com/free-photo-editing-software/
