E-commerce trend: Shifting away from “Black Friday” marketing promotions to get innovate and get creative.

ScanMyPhotos.com Launches 100% New Website For The Holiday Season

"The first rule in business is to BREAK THE RULES, advises Mitch Goldstone, CEO at ScanMyPhotos.com. Most Black Friday discounts are unimaginative and cataclysmic disasters."

The alternative to “Black Friday” from the viewpoint of a thirty-one year business owner.


There is a global pandemic where trillions of government funds were circulated in free bailout dollars to businesses as millions shuttered.

The U.S. faces hyperinflation, supply chain and delivery disruptions:

So why are consumers hurting weakened businesses by demanding hefty discounts from retailers who can't even find employees to work?

"The first rule in business is to BREAK THE RULES," advises Mitch Goldstone, CEO at ScanMyPhotos.com. Most break-the-bank Black Friday discounts are unimaginative and cataclysmic disasters..

The contrary story is what companies like ScanMyPhotos.com did. Instead of following and investing in holiday discounts, they spent a year to redesign and redefine how pictures are digitized.

"As a primer for every business, the focus should be on modernizing their website to provide an extraordinary customer experience," said Goldstone.


What are other companies doing to innovate and escape conventional holiday sales? How are they getting creative to reinvest their marketing budgets?

This is transformative. Photo Scanning has never been easier because ScanMyPhotos.com just overhauled everything with a stunning new kind of website--designed to meet consumer demands.

After a year of website design and planning, today is the debut of the all-new ScanMyPhotos.com home. It was a collaborative effort designed with consumers mind to rethink how pictures are digitized, safeguarded, and preserved.

Built on its 30+ years of photo preservation experience and extensive customer feedback, the reason to reinvent everything was forged from this common complaint: “Your photo scanning is excellent, but your antiquated, prehistoric-looking website was clunky and old-school.”

Eighty-two percent of the new features are invisible. The behind-the-scenes magic makes every button you click do really cool stuff to expedite your order to immediately get you exactly what you want.

The online photo scanning company studied why people have their analog images scanned. The majority (53%) of families want to just upload photo content to popular photo-sharing apps. That is why 72 dpi “social media” photo scanning is provided. Yet, if you need 600 dpi high resolution “professional” scanning, that service is also available. Choose from 72, 150, 300, and 600 dpi resolution for photos, and 2,000 – 4,000 dpi resolution for 35mm slides and film negatives.

People have waited decades to revisit and digitally preserve their lifetime of pictures. Yet, when the time comes to have everything scanned, there is an immediacy and often an urgency to get the project done right now.

Within minutes, your order is processed. ScanMyPhotos.com then gets to work to professionally preserve your snapshots, slides, film negatives, VHS cassettes, home movie film, and more.
