Do you have questions about the New Plans?
We’re sure you do, because it’s totally logical that you’ll have questions about the New Plans as it’s a totally different change of vision that you can give to your photography business.
But before answering some of the questions about the New Plans that you have asked us, we would like to give you a brief overview of the content of the new Arcadina plans.
Business Plans: sell your photos and photographic services and create client galleries
The idea of launching the Business plans on the market, as the word itself indicates, was for you to do all the business you can think of with your images and, therefore, to get even more profit from your photo shoots.
Because after many years of providing a platform for photographers to create their online photo studios, we know that there can be as many business models as there are photographers in the market.
Therefore, for all those photographers who want to focus their business on the sale of images, products and services or at least give an important weight to this part of their business, these plans are designed.
Web Plan: your professional space on the Internet
Then there is the other type of photographer who is more classic or who is taking his first steps as a professional photographer and what he is looking for is to have a place to show his best photographs and explain what he offers to his clients. For all of them, the Web plan is perfect to create a professional website with the possibility of choosing between 7 web designs and a blog where you can create articles to interact with your audience.
Web and Business Plan: the perfect combination
This will undoubtedly be the most attractive and complete option of all, where you will have the possibility of having a professional website and a blog with an exclusive and professional design fully integrated.
A business area to be able to offer your clients a series of private galleries to show them the photographs of their photo shoots and continue doing business with your photographs thanks to the online shop.
6 questions about the New Plans that you may be asking yourself right now
Among all the questions about the New Plans that we have received, we have selected the 6 most frequently asked questions. The idea is to help you have a much clearer vision of all the business possibilities that you can have at hand right now with the new Arcadina Plans. Here are these 6 questions.

“Now with Arcadina you can create the online photography business you really need to succeed.”
2# I have my website with another provider, can I contract a Business plan with Arcadina?
Of course you can. As we were saying, as we can offer you the Business and Web plans separately, you will be able to set up your online business as you prefer.
So, if you already have a website and you need a private area where you can show your clients your photo shoots and where they can interact comfortably with them (selecting, downloading, buying or simply viewing their images).
Or if you have a website and want to implement an online shop to sell your photographs, services, photography courses and other products. Any of the Business plans will be perfect for your situation.

In all of them you will be able to enjoy all the private galleries you need for your clients:

In the following article we detail in more detail the different options for each of the 6 Business plans.
4# What is included in the Web Professional Plan?
