#1 Missing Content for Snap to Monetize on Snapchat are 3.5 Trillion Analog Photos

Post Snap IPO, we share these observations on their missing pictures opportunity


As Snap [SnapChat] evolved from a phone app for disappearing pictures into a “camera company,” they are missing a big market that’s quickly disappearing as generations of analog photographs fade away from the ravages of time.


The Problem with Snap: While sharing life’s moments, most are recent pictures from smartphones, yet they are missing 3 1/2 trillion decades-past, still analog photo snapshots.


ScanMyPhotos.com has professionally digitized more than 300 million photos

The Snap Solution: To enhance the Snap experience and help them better monetize its content, ScanMyPhotos.com has identified a simple way to boost engagement while gaining an entirely new older demographic for them, as we digitize the world’s photos.   Think outside the box. Study how more content can be uploaded to Snap, Twitter, Instagram, Google Photos, Facebook and the rest of the popular photo-sharing apps. We provide digitized pictures which are then uploaded, and indirectly yield enhanced revenues for them as more pages are viewed and available to post advertisements on. The definition of “win-win.’


So, how does ScanMyPhotos professionally digitize 300,000 pictures every day? Check this out:

Turn Your Snapshots Into Digital Photos

Techaeris

Turn Your Snapshots Into Digital Photos

 

 from Techaeris reported on ScanMyPhotos.com and tips for digitizing photos.

 

Excerpt

We take a lot of digital photos, and free online storage options for those photos are available all over the place. From Dropbox, to OneDrive, to Flikr, and even Google Photos there are loads of places to store all of the selfies, food pics, and other assorted photos that our phones and digital cameras have allowed us to easily take.

But what about your old family photos?  You know, the ones that had to be set up, taken on film, and developed? I’d wager that many of us (myself absolutely included) have a stash somewhere of photo albums, boxes of photos, slides, and negatives that are just sitting in storage, or collecting dust somewhere in your house. What would you do if those photos were suddenly gone?


That horrible possibility is ever-present. From flooded basements, to the wildfires that we’ve seen on the news, to the simple passing of time degrading the paper the photos are printed on there’s definitely a clock ticking on these photos. A digital backup is definitely a great way to avoid any of these disasters, and I’ve personally considered going through and scanning many of the photos that I have stored away but that is just a daunting task that always seems to get put off for another day (or in my case, weeks and months).


Thankfully there are other options. ScanMyPhotos.com is a service that does, well, exactly what their name says. The company has been in business for over 27 years and have really gotten the whole scanning thing down. They will handle your photos, slides, negatives, and even video transfer and photo restoration. Their most popular service is photo scanning and there are even a few different ways to handle that. You can simply walk into their office with some photos, walk out with scanned copies of those photos, and that will cost you $.16 per photo.

 

 
The best option is probably the pre-paid photo box. For $145 they’ll send you a USPS flat-rate box that you can fill with photos. You’ll be able to get roughly 1,800 photos in there which ends up at a cost of $.08 per photo. Simply box up your photos, send them in, and the team over at ScanMyPhotos.com will get to work.

Millions Get Nostalgic With Photos Every Thursday During #TBT

How to Scan Photos For Posting on #TBT

A sizzling hot trend in social media happens every Thursday. From celebrity baby photos to average social networking fans sharing yesteryear family celebrations, millions of people are having fun and getting nostalgic by sharing their decades of rediscovered legacy photo snapshots during ‘Throwback Thursday’ [“#TBT”].


TTBT Ruleshe popular photo-scanning apps, like Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, and of course, Twitter are the ideal source for sharing these decades-past photos.  Just remember to tag each picture with the #TBT hashtag to get noticed.


Even businesses are adopting this online sensation by sharing long forgotten photo flashbacks when their companies were just starting out. Casinos in Las Vegas are a fun example to view legendary buildings of yesteryear and famous luminaries on immense vintage marquee signs which are no longer with us.


 

“Posting old pictures from your childhood to 1980’s-style fashions on leading social media platforms is easy, just include the “TBT” Hash tag. The challenging part is how to get thousands of analog pictures and 35mm slides digitized?  This is where ScanMyPhotos.com plays an integral role. Nearly 63% of all our photo digitization orders worldwide are linked to people participating in ‘Throwback Thursday,’” said Mitch Goldstone, president & CEO, ScanMyPhotos.com.


“The photo digitization service has scanned more than 300 million pictures and is a primary content provider for the hyper-popular #TBT trend.  Without ScanMyPhotos,” said Goldstone, “most shared pictures would be relegated to just recent digital photos from smartphones.”


“There is an urgency to digitize analog photos to preserve all those breathtaking pop culture and family memories. The number one new reason is ‘Throwback Thursday,’” according to Goldstone


How it Works to Get Photos Scanned
