From the world of digital imaging, tune into this SiriusXM THE FEED Amber Mac and Michael Bancroft interview with ScanMyPhotos.com
The pandemic’s year-long winter of anguish is transitioning to solace and springtime resurgence toward routineness.
This is definitive proof that things are gradually hobbling back to normalcy. Before the pandemic, the top reasons for scanning photos were celebrating anniversaries, creating genealogy family history projects, posting to all the photo-sharing apps, and protecting photographs from natural disasters like this.
This is an encouraging indicator from our studying why people are digitizing their lifetime of family pictures. Today’s finding demonstrates a significant shift in the pandemic.
During the past year, 40% of all photo scanning orders were placed by grieving families preparing for online Zoom memorial services. This led to an urgent pivot and shift in how we operated.
Now the number one reason to digitally preserve photographs is preparing for summertime family reunion presentations. The big change in why people are revisiting their archives of family nostalgia accelerated after President Biden outlined his goal for July 4th family celebrations and path towards post-Covid normalcy. Over 70% of all new orders are from families preparing for summertime reunions.
