FREE Webinar: 10 Ideas for Great Gifts Using Your Family Photos

Creating Great Family Photo Gifts with the Flip-Pal mobile scanner

This Friday, November 16, 2012 at 2:00pm Eastern/1:00pm Central, join me  for a FREE webinar entitled 10 Ideas for Great Gifts Using Your Family Photos:

Once a precious family photo is scanned using the Flip- Pal® mobile scanner, you can do more than just send the image to friends & family and add to your family tree. We will quickly cover how to scan an original, then print for use in gift projects. A few of the ideas we will share using these prints: ornaments, sweat shirts, quilts, wall hangings, holiday decoration and more. This seminar will be packed with ideas and step by step how-to details from these two creative individuals. We’ll also cover how you can use various sites such as Zazzle, Café Press and even superstore sites such as Costco, Walmart, and Walgreens to create calendars and photo books as gifts.

Announcing a New Client – ReelGenie

Reel Genie

I am pleased to announce my affiliation with the creators of an exciting new product for the genealogy market – ReelGenie.

I’ve dubbed ReelGenie “The Genealogy Technology to Watch in 2013” since it will revolutionize family history storytelling through its intuitive, web-based movie platform. ReelGenie combines three of the most popular computing trends—online video, social media and the cloud—with a rapidly-growing interest in genealogy.

The result? The only online platform that fulfills every item on the consumer’s wish list. Here’s what ReelGenie offers:

  • Ease of Use. Have fun creating movies (not just simple slide shows) with drag-and-drop ease—and see immediate success. Users can import digital images and data from partners’ websites or upload from their computer. And adding voiceovers and background music is a breeze.
  • Elegance. Using pre-designed templates and video effects relevant to the story’s content, ReelGenie produces visually stunning movies. This process is supported by the “StoryGenie”, which walks users through the process of telling a captivating story. ReelGenie’s  Storytelling Advisor delivers expert insights via blog posts and sample videos.
  • Rich Content. ReelGenie’s curated library of premium images and music is tailored to telling family stories.
  • Affordability. ReelGenie is accessible to all users at an affordable price.
  • Social and Collaborative Appeal. Through ReelGenie’s collaborative editor, users can invite family members to contribute to the movie. With the ability to share online via Facebook and other social networks, users receive the validation and motivation to enjoy the movie-making process and come back for more.

Visit signup.reelgeniefilms.com and sign up for a sneak peek at ReelGenie once the product is launched!

I will be providing ReelGenie with the high-quality analysis, evaluation, marketing, social media and business development services which I provide specifically for the genealogy and family history community of businesses and non-profit organizations.

I’m excited to share information as I can about the ReelGenie product with the genealogy community . . . Stay tuned!
