When you become a TSS Photography franchise owner, you get everything you need. Established professional photographers already know how to take high-quality images, run a business and serve clients. TSS gives you additional brand notoriety, a boost in marketing, the know-how to be successful in high-volume sales and anything else you need – including additional products, services, advanced software to handle high-volumes, training and marketing materials.
Expand your photography offerings as well as exposure in your marketplace
As a TSS Photography franchisee, you retain the ability to run your business, manage your overhead and set your prices. TSS is there when you need us, with support, training and the industry knowledge for high-volume sports, school and event photography. Plus, you can take advantage of TSS’s national buying power, which controls your costs. TSS has also aggressively pursued a number of strategic alliances and endorsements – relationships that mean more business opportunities for you! Groups like the YMCA, i9, Babe Ruth League, Police Youth Athletic League and National Recreation and Parks Association all already have an existing relationship with TSS.
Retain your existing brand or convert to simplify
If you have worked hard to establish an existing brand, we certainly understand that you may want to continue to operate under that name. If this business involves sports or schools then we can share the long list of reasons you may want to convert the name of that business to TSS Photography (chief among them the brand recognition and buying power we get collectively). If you do portraits or other types of work, then we can discuss options with you as to how the 2 business lines can co-exist and complement each other.
What can TSS do that I can’t do on my own?
We know that not everyone wants to reinvent the wheel. We are constantly sharing ideas, studying what works and updating best-practices. TSS is also backed by one of the nation’s largest professional photography labs. In addition to lab services, TSS franchisees have access to the most powerful software for a high-volume photo business. Many platforms would need to be utilized to recreate the power of our CORE™ software which is available to franchisees at no charge.
There is no charge for orders placed in your office. E-commerce fees are only charged for website sales when an order is placed. No upfront or ongoing storage fees are charged no matter how many images you upload. To learn more about our CORE software, click here.
It has been a wonderful experience. I hope for it to continue. It is a company and culture that I would like to work within if I did not own my own company.
