Photo Club La Meteorite

My own photography club but nevertheless demanding highest standards and innovation. We need a platform to display photos, run monthly competition and enable access to archives of previous competitions and field trips. There is a voting system in play on the competition page allowing anybody to rate a photo (one to five stars). This is available to me to announce a winner at the end of each month’s competition. Old galleries are archived to flickr and can be viewed directly from the website.

It was surprisingly difficult to find a voting system plugin that suited, there were plenty of facebook style like/dislike but we needed to be able to rate rather than just goog or not. Anyway what we have works (once we sorted out the problem with one vote of 5 stars giving a higher average than 5 votes of two stars – we now work on total stars awarded. One funny thing about the voting system is that I left working on the previous competitions and found people still voting. I hadn’t pushed it on google but neither had I hidden it. There were people from all over, the USA, India, China. It wasn’t spam or bots either, I have spam filters on all my sites and the votes were reasonable, not pushing with 5 stars or anything. This year I hope to reach out to these strangers and include them in our little group, tell them about the winners and perhaps include their submissions. We will still have our own club galleries after all. On that note, our sister club in La Souterraine has decided to focus more on field trips and photographer case studies and will not be submitting to our competitions as much, but with our membership doubling in the past few months that won’t be a problem.

It’s a complicated world, the world of online selling. So I make it easy for you by using WooCommerce – the most popular shopping platform on the internet, by far. Used byover 3 million businesses worldwide, small and large.

The possibilities are boundless but I make it easy for you. We talk and figure out what you need – taxes, shipping, payment gateways plus all sorts of variations depending upon your specific products and business.  I will guide you through the options leading you to the most efficient and easy to use site for you and your customers.

The cost depends upon any specific extras you require. There is an initial extra for integration and implementation (usually around 50% on top of the site cost). There are also extra monthly licence costs for some of the add-ons. It is easy for these to accumulate, but I will guide you to what will work for your business at the most economical cost.



There are a lot of options for marketing on the internet. Starting with simply collecting email address of prospects and following a mailing plan. You can connect up with advertising possibilities such as Facebook and Google.

I have a number of options that help you through the process. Made easy by simple email templates and strategies, tried and tested by email marketing experts.
