Why lessons learned from the MoviePass® debacle are scoring critical raves


This may be the first time anyone said “BRAVO MoviePass!”


ScanMyPhotos corpoate headquarters in Irvine 300x138 - Why lessons learned from the MoviePass® debacle are scoring critical ravesAt ScanMyPhotos.com, having digitized 600 million photographs, we know a thing or two about pictures.


From the new Regal Cinemas’ monthly subscription plan called “Regal Unlimited,” we noticed it is teeming with restrictions.


1) Range of pricing depending on the theater location;

2) A convenience fee of $0.50 for every movie you book through the app;

3) Surcharges for special features;

4) Must subscribe for a year.


The best lesson learned by the origins of MoviePass was simplicity and a price so crazy-low that it went viral and scored millions of subscribers. While it became a marketing disaster, it was a ‘teachable moment’ case study in what not to do. According to CNN, it is now “IMG 1044 300x200 - Why lessons learned from the MoviePass® debacle are scoring critical ravesgoing dark.”


But, MoviePass did create opportunities. It inspired and taught many — from AMC Stubs A-List, Regal Unlimited, Cinemark Movie Club and us.


There was an unintended benefit from MoviePass. The dream for every business is to create something so disruptive and unique that it changes an industry.  Every business needs to spark questions like “Wait! What? How can you provide a service so inexpensively?” The trick is it must be profitable rather than trying to make it up on volume.


Having pioneered bulk photo scanning, ScanMyPhotos scored years of media coverage for our prior innovations. But the newest sequel is more than magic. It is real and helping to digitally preserve millions of pictures THIS FAST so no more nostalgic family memories are destroyed like what happened in this past Weather Channel news story.

ScanMyPhotos corpoate headquarters in Irvine 300x138 - NOW Photo Scanning For One Cent From ScanMyPhotosWhy? There were the Oprah recommendation and all these news and review profiles. But, also because of the destruction by hurricanes and wildfires. These natural disasters have taken a toll on family photos. We even heard from a past customer from years ago. She asked if we still had the thousands of pictures digitized for her? Sadly, she explained her house just burned down — the digital files were stored alongside her pictures. Not backed up off-site.

Demystifying The World of Photo Scanning

ScanMyPhotos corpoate headquarters in Irvine 300x138 - Demystifying The World of Photo ScanningThe “war” on photo scanning became a battle of words. Since pioneering innovations in the photo imaging industry — beginning way back in 1990 — ScanMyPhotos.com has become known as a top photo imaging industry leader by demystifying photography.


The History of Photo Scanning  


Recently, some photo-scanning apps have entered the world of digitizing analog snapshots. And, with 3 1/2 trillion analog photos, plus 35mm slides, Polaroids, and those old film negatives, the ocean of opportunity to help digitize the world’s photos is deep.


Whether it’s competitors vying to try duplicating our game-changing way to digitize 1,800 photos in minutes, with free 3-way shipping for $145, or the new apps, and costly DIY scanner options, all help raise the tide. Now, the but.


How to Scan Pictures: Photo Scanning App vs ScanMyPhotos com



We helped solve the biggest challenge in photography; how to upload all your nostalgic snapshots to the popular photo-sharing apps.  Think of it, most pictures shared on Instagram, Facebook and Google Photos are recent digital pictures from your smartphone–if you’re like us, mostly of the food you ate last evening. Right?

ScanMyPhotos.com CEO with his Dad at Disneyland in 1967

Our Passion is Photography.


It always has been.  For some emotional background, company CEO, Mitch Goldstone was with his Dad hugging him at Disneyland in 1967.  This photo became his only tangible memory, as his father passed away two years later.  At that young age, he understands better than most, how powerful a single photo is. We all have that similar, special picture. Right?

 


But, What are Others Saying About Why THEY are Digitizing Pictures?

The “War” of Words


ScanMyPhotos corpoate headquarters in Irvine 1 300x138 - Demystifying The World of Photo ScanningWe’ve heard it all. Companies taking more than two months to scan some orders with only a few dozen pictures, others are using container ships to send your family pictures abroad. Really?  And many charging 40-75 cents and more to scan a single picture. How about paying about 8-cents and getting free 3-way delivery to have ScanMyPhotos.com professionally digitize everything at it’s Irvine, CA corporate headquarters and fulfillment facility?


USA Today just reported on the “Top 3 New Year’s Tech Resolutions You Must Keep,” and included ScanMyPhotos.


Stephanie Rosenbloom, Getaway New York Times Travel columnist wrote:


For affordable bulk scans, ScanMyPhotos.com is an old standby (you can read David Pogue’s review on nytimes.com). The company will scan about 1,800 photos… for $145 at its headquarters in Irvine, Calif.; the cost of sending the photo box to you, as well as the shipping of the box to ScanMyPhotos and back to you again is included in the price. That’s one of the least costly and most uncomplicated deals around.

 


And, as for the “fastest” way to digitize pictures, a new, DIY scanner will set you back $650 before digitizing even your first photo–at slow-mo rates compared to us. They added a fine print disclaimer. And, it appears they even updated the misstatement from “fastest” to “high-speed.”  But, the official corporate press release headline still has what looks like a walloping, misleading lie: “Epson Debuts World’s Fastest Photo Scanner….” We can only guess they are also raging from PC Magazine’s prominent reviewer and senior analyst, Tony Hoffman, who adding this at the end of his review:


Another option would be to send your prints to a photo scanning service, which may be a more economical choice if you have no more than a few thousand prints to scan. For example, you can order a box from ScanMyPhotos International that fits about 1,800 prints; fill it and send it in, and the company will scan your photos to JPEGs at 300dpi for $145 or at 600dpi for $259 (including shipping) and then return them to you with a DVD containing the scanned files.


Epilogue


This Weather Channel story explains why pictures must be digitized [spoiler alert: it’s emotional]. It’s all about helping to digitize the world’s photo memories. Many choices, but for the ultimate “mic drop” moment…ready for it? This is the only way to professionally digitize about 300,000 high-resolution pictures every day:
