DELEGATE: Tell us more about yourself
Ubersnap is the world’s first GIF-printing photo booth for weddings, corporate events, and private parties. We capture GIFs of social people, and turn them into instant Harry Potter-style prints.
D: How did you get the idea or concept for your business?
The first version of Ubersnap was actually a mobile app, which allowed anyone to capture their everyday moments in GIFs. We wanted to take that to the next level, and thought it would be really special to be able to turn the GIFs into actual, physical prints.
Thereafter, it just made sense to bring everything together into a photo booth experience. The first event we did was at a friend’s party, and the response was amazing; our photo booth was absolutely swarmed. That was when we knew we had built something special.
D: What is your vision/mission for your company?
To create a truly memorable and interactive photo booth experience for our guests. Events should be fun; and we bring the fun to any event.
D: How did you start it? What were some adversities you faced when starting it?
We started off with smaller events, that were organized by people within our social circle. Over time, that led to bigger events by companies like Forbes, Mercedes and DBS.
Our initial challenge was the same challenge that any new company would face – getting clients to even know that we exist! There’s no easy way around it; you just have to build something remarkable enough to be noticed. Thankfully, we’re seeing more and more of our clients coming in through referrals and word-of-mouth.
D: What is something we might not know about the industry you’re in?
We’re in a competitive industry, which is why it’s incredibly important to keep innovating. We obsess about our product all the time, and are constantly thinking of new features to keep our service fresh, useful and interesting.
D: What has been the most memorable experience for you so far in running your business?
It’s always memorable when we have guests who get really excited about our photo booth. They get their prints and start showing them off to their friends; before we know it, we’re getting swarmed by their friends as well! It has happened countless times, and it gives us a great sense of satisfaction each time.
D: How do you define success? Who do you see as successful?
We succeed when our clients have a great experience at our photo booth. That’s it. Success comes when we meet, or exceed, the expectations of each and every client – one client at a time.
D: Which habits of yours have gotten you to where you are today?
Working on the small things which, over time, snowball into something much bigger than the sum of its parts.
D: What is one thing you would like your customers to know about your company?
Organizing an event is stressful; that’s why it’s important to have reliable partners to work with. When you hire us, you’re not just hiring a photo booth. You’re hiring a partner you can work with, to make your event a success.
D: If you could give advice to fellow and budding entrepreneurs, what would it be?
There’s no magic bullet in business, no one thing you can do that will propel you to success. It’s just a combination of many small things that come together. Stop searching for the magic bullet, and start working on the small things.
