Welcome to YearbooksLive, the podcast that teaches you everything you need to know about yearbooks with your podcast for the real-world. I’m JP, your host, your teacher and coach coming to you from sunny South Florida.
In today’s episode we are going to talk about the state of the yearbook and photo industry. A lot has happened in the last year and we are going to cover the questions you should be asking your yearbook company for the upcoming year. So, sit back relax and let’s get into it.
So what’s happened?
Bankruptcies – Photographer and publishers both – Is yours one of them?
Consolidation – There are less local local offices – Has your local office moved? Do you have a local rep? Do you really need a local rep in the world of Zoom? Is your customer service department working from home? Are they available when you need them?
Layoffs- Is the printing plant opened on a full time basis? Will there be a change to you delivery dates? Do they still have the resources and staff to produce your yearbook?
Talk is cheap. Verify and do some research.
So Until next week happy yearbooking.
