When Google Maps was first released, people were instantly fascinated by the site. How great is it to be able to type in an address and not only get directions, but be able to “virtually” travel to and view wherever you’re looking for – for free?
Digital archiving and backup provides safety, revitalization and enables sharing in a way that can unlock our one-of-a-kind personal content to a myriad of new digital possibilities. FotoBridge, the national photo scanning service, was launched in 2007 to provide a simple and trusted way to digitize large collections of analog media in a secure, timely manner - accessible to everyone.
But how do the professionals at FotoBridge, who are passionate about their mission of preserving the world's highly-valued personal lifetime photo and movie collections, get the word out?
"Word-of-mouth is the best and most effective way of spreading the word about how important digitally preserving your analog memories is... and the services FotoBridge offers to make that simple, affordable and safe" said Julie-Ann Morris, President of FotoBridge. "Often online advertising and social media helps reach new people, but for a service like ours which is based upon trust and personal service - nothing beats real customers sharing their experience with family, friends and colleagues. Occasionally, we also use traditional media promotions in select markets which increases awareness - my personal favorite was a radio spot we sponsored last year featuring up-and-coming national radio and television personality, newspaper columnist, author and MSNBC political analyst Michael Smerconish.

"We have been fortunate to have hundreds of customers from Colorado since starting our photo scanning service in 2007", said Julie Ann Morris, President of FotoBridge. "But we know the vast majority of people in Colorado and across the country have yet to digitally preserve and sufficiently backup their highly valued analog collections. Safely handling and storing one-of-a-kind, personal photo and movie collections is what we do everyday - it's how we can help", added Ms. Morris.
