The photography business is getting tougher. It was never easy being a small business owner, but when the economy is slowingâ€”or if your customers think it is slowingâ€”business gets even more daunting.
Overcoming the periods of economic uncertainty is difficult, but we want you to know that PPA is always on your side and working to help you and your business. Now is not the time to be working without the protection of PPAâ€™s unmatched Malpractice Protection program (the Indemnification Trust), without PPAâ€™s numerous discount programs, or without important information like marketing trends.
And membership in PPA is easier than everâ€¦giving you access to such benefits.
Did you know you can pay PPA dues in small, monthly payments? Itâ€™s easy, convenient, and doesnâ€™t take a chunk out of your checking account! PPA simply charges a credit card number each month for a small portion of your dues. Many members who use the monthly installment planâ€”about 20% of PPAâ€™s total membershipâ€”tell us that the convenience is as important as the small payments.
For most members, this installment plan equates to just $23.75* each month. For members in the Aspiring category, the cost is only $13* per month!
When it is time to renew, you can easily switch to the monthly plan by contacting PPAâ€™s Service Center (800-786-6277 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
In addition, keep your eyes on these weekly e-mails. In the upcoming months, we will change the focus to bring you more specific information on how to weather the economic storm. During tough times, we turn to our friends and family for support. And as a member, you are part of the PPA family.
