I would love to help you set up a SmugMug website of your very own. I’ve been using SmugMug for 10 years and I can say with 110% confidence that SmugMug is an excellent photo-sharing website. Why I do like SmugMug? The answer is easy. That is the reason! SmugMug is easy! Contact me to talk about your website and how I can help you. By following the link I provide, you can save 15 – 31% on your subscription, and at the same time will be supporting my small business.
Easy to Begin
It was easy to start. When I signed up for SmugMug, I wasn’t in the business of photography, nor did I have a desire to be in the business of photography. I was photographing landscape, people and vacations as a hobby, and had a full-time corporate job. I wanted to put my favorite photos online to share them with friends and family and wanted a simple website that would require no technical knowledge. A friend suggested SmugMug, which was available for free at the time (for basic functionality), so I signed up. After I added a couple of photo galleries and shared some links with friends, I actually forgot I had even set it up. Work and other priorities… life. Probably 2 years later, I had a hard drive crash at home, logged into SmugMug and to my relief, the photos I had lost on my hard drive were sitting safely in my SmugMug account. So I started adding photos SmugMug, because then I saw it as a good online backup.
Easy to Learn and Grow
I watched as new functions, templates and features were being added to SmugMug. Little by little I started trying out new functions, evolving from an amateur to professional photographer, with my website growing with me. Over the years I have become very proficient using SmugMug, like one does with intuitive software tools. The learning curve was truly organic. It’s kind of surprised me, because I never intended to be a “website person”. I’m not a software developer.
Easy Company With Whom to Work
I have never felt pressured or over-marketed-to by SmugMug. It drives me crazy to see continual version upgrades from some of my favorite software/hardware vendors, to be notified constantly and then be forced to upgrade. In 10 years, I can remember only one time that SmugMug went through a major version upgrade and required customers to migrate – ONE time in 10 years. Otherwise, the upgrades have been transparent to me, becoming visible when I go looking for the latest features or a specific function. SmugMug has allowed me to grow at my pace, not theirs.
Am I still a SmugMug customer? Absolutely! All of my portfolios are housed on SmugMug. I think it’s a lifetime relationship.
