Social Booth Explained

I bet you know exactly what a Photo Booth is, right? I mean you haven’t been living under a rock, have you? Everyone know what a Photo Booth is. But not everyone knows what a Social Booth is. And that’s what we’re here to tell you about!

Social Booth

The Basics

Let’s start with the basics here so you don’t get confused about what a Social Booth is. It’s a Photo Booth…but…on steroids..AND…if you can even imagine it…it costs less! You get a real photo booth capturing the real fun at your event for the fraction of the cost. Now, you might be wondering why we’d (or any company really) would offer you a better version of a Photo Booth Rental that’s less money. 

Social Booth Cost

If you’ve read our other blogs you know we just keep it real here. So, we’re going to be honest with you. We can offer the Social Booth for less because it costs us less! Why? No paper, no ink, no printer. Well, what is the point of a photo booth without prints? A LOT!! All you need is a WIFI signal and our booth will actually TEXT your guests a copy of their visit. And that’s where the name comes from. You’re being social with your visit by sharing it with others. Text away, share on Facebook, Instagram, or send it to granny in an email. Be social with it. 

Social Booth

How’s It Work?

So, basically a Social Booth works the same as a regular Photo Booth rental up until the time the prints normally come out. Instead of hooking up to a printer, the booth attendant will hook up to your venues WIFI connection. Then, at the end of their visit your guests will be asked to enter their telephone number into the booth, which will text them from an internet phone number that’s programmed into the booth. They’ll get a cute little image showing off their photo booth posing skills. It comes as a 4X6 postcard style graphic with anywhere from 1-3 images in it. (Wanna see what it looks like? I put a recent rentals image below.)

How Can I Customize The Experience?

The Classic Social Booth Rental comes with the booth, a backdrop, and props. You pick your choice of 6 Themes that we have available. Each theme has matching backdrop, prop set, greeting screen, and digital template that goes along with it. We automatically customize the digital template to put your info in it. So, for example we can edit the graphic to say “Happy Birthday John!!” or “Anchors Away to Megan” or whatever else your event is about. 

But for some people they want more….and there are a few upgrades that you can add on or you can order our Premium Social Booth with all the fixings. We can offer things like a GIF upgrade so instead of a 4X6 postcard your guests get a square graphic frame with an actual loop GIF of their visit in it. Or you can add on a Digital Download of all your event files so you get a copy too! Our premium upgrade comes with completely customized graphics so we’ll design something just for you. We can match school colors, insert special graphics, change fonts, or even use an existing photo in the design!

Responsibilities of EriePics Senior Rep Program

Our Senior Reps do have some responsibilities during the year. The most important part of being a Senior on our team is sharing content on social media. What kind of content? YOURS! That’s right! We want you to share all the awesome photos you take with our team on social media. Something you’re probably going to do already. You commit to posting at least once a week on places like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, etc. 

The next major part of being a part of the Senior Rep Program is being there. We need you to be our model for training shoots with our photo assistants or any time we do a fun fantasy shoot. We try to do a shoot each season. Ever wanted to dress up as a viking or pirate? Maybe you want to have a massive snowball fight. We have several fun shoots a year we plan out and we need you in front of the camera!

What’s so great about being a Senior Rep for EriePics? Well, EVERYTHING!

And, for each session you do we give you 5 of your favorite digitals so you can share them on social media. BONUS: For every senior you refer that also books with us…you get a $25 store credit towards your gallery which you can turn into more digitals or whatever else you want!
