1. What type of internet platform is vip-pictures?
www.vip-pictures.com is the first worldwide social commerce platform for presenting and marketing celebrities and well-known personalities from the world of music, TV, theatre, sport, politics, government, religion, or business, areas which strongly influence our lives. Celebrities, stars, and brands, that is to say VIPs, present themselves using an exclusive VIP fan-page where they can publish exclusive photos and where exclusively designed products can be marketed. Therefore, by providing high-quality products and services, www.vip-pictures.com is not just "The Shopping Centre for Famous Faces", it also offers businesses a unique, additional marketing platform.
2. What is so special about the vip-pictures.com internet platform?
www.vip-pictures.com allows internet users worldwide to learn about celebrities, stars, and starlets as well as other personalities from the public sphere and specific businesses. Besides having the opportunity to find out information, fans, followers, friends, or sympathisers can like, recommend, and of course buy high-quality and exclusive products from the stars' and businesses' collections. Moreover, our users will be informed of important news and activities as well as exclusive limited editions related to the chosen personalities or businesses.
The innovation - a unique 3D product designer directly connected to the systems and machines in our fully-automated data and logistics factory make an endless variety of designed products possible. The principle: Just in time, i.e. produced on demand, even for an order quantity of "1". First, the customer starts the production process by ordering and paying for the desired product. This gives stars completely new and hitherto unknown possibilities for offering fans an almost inexhaustible range of products for the first time ever, without taking any financial risks - from classic fan items to exclusive collections, anything is possible. Then the unique product is produced and dispatched.
3. How does the vip-pictures.com internet platform work?
www.vip-pictures.com is freely available for all internet users. The content of the VIP fan-pages and collections is solely the responsibility of the VIPs and their business partners. You must register in order to rate VIP fan-pages, entire collections, or individual products and pictures from a personal favourite celebrity, and in order to receive exclusive information and offers. Moreover, the user has access to search and filter functions, such as searching by category, country, and city, or searching for specific services and products. Using our unique rating system, people and businesses are presented according to their ranking which is based on the number of likes. The number one spot is reserved for the person or business with the most likes. This principle is also used for presentation in each of the various categories.
Using a special log-in portal, our business partners have access to further functionality on our platform such as an overview of basic items, use of the 3D product designers, and a reporting module.
4. What are the benefits for me as customer?
As the first social commerce platform we offer our customers and users a unique way of connecting social media and online commerce that has never been seen before. On a single platform, fans, followers, friends, and sympathisers are presented with the most important information, the most popular pictures, and exclusively designed products from an ever increasing number of personalities and businesses from all around the world. And all available in 13 different languages! By using the new rating system, users decide who sits where in the rankings by giving likes. All designs are available exclusively from our shop and come straight from the stars themselves. With limited editions, fans and customers are in fact getting exclusive celebrity products and not mass-produced items. Notifications and updates on special offers mean that as a registered user you also always profit from on-going savings.
5. What are the benefits for me as a personality or business?
www.vip-pictures.com offers you a unique, never-before-seen opportunity for presenting VIP fan-pages from extraordinary personalities and business in the form of a simple overview according to sphere of activity and country - worldwide and in 13 different languages. By presenting categories and using a variety of search and filter functions, your profile will always appear in relation to other VIPs. Each additional fan-page adds value to VIP pictures. There is currently no other internet platform which can create this kind of network. Moreover, if you wish, a profile on www.vip-pictures.com can be linked to all other channels and media to increase your discoverability. Since each profile is subject to a licensing agreement, all information about personalities and businesses that is published on the site is classed as official - meaning that there is no risk of unofficial or imitation fan-sites, or of misuse.
The biggest innovation is be found in the social commerce area: Fans and followers can not only find out information about VIPs or like them, they can also shop for exclusive celebrity products in the collections. By using a unique 3D product designer, personalities, brands, and businesses can offer their followers an endless variety of products. Minimum orders are a thing of the past - this service is offered to the stars free of charge and with no financial risks. Order quantities of "1" mean that the pricing policy of other providers increases slightly. On the one hand, this is the basis for new and exclusive products with individual designs that are only available via VIP Pictures. On the other hand, the VIPs' previous products and marketing channels are not affected. The platform simply creates the opportunity to expand already available product lines with products which other suppliers can't produce in single quantities. VIP Pictures is therefore revolutionising the merchandising market without replacing it, whilst the stars themselves are getting an entirely new marketing opportunity without having to take any financial risks.
The newly-designed reporting module also allows fans or target groups to be addressed selectively. This means, for example, that you can find out when a product was voted for but not purchased. Offers, special promotions, or limited editions can be targeted to specific groups, which can of course mean targeting specific countries or regions. This exciting new marketing tool represents a completely new innovation!
6. Which product groups offered by VIP Pictures can be personalised?
The range of basic items includes a variety of products which our business partners can constantly review and design to make sure they're up to date. Of course, we are always working to further develop our range of products as well as our personalisation and processing techniques. The product range includes, amongst others: Clothing, smartphone and tablet covers, printed products, key-rings, adhesive labels and stickers, photo puzzles, porcelain and ceramics, cutlery, promotional and gift products, make-up, photo frames, frameless glass photo frames, hand-made art glass and other glass and lead-crystal products, chocolate, photo clocks, lamps and lights, and upholstery.
7. What is a 3D product designer and how can I use one?
The unique 3D product designer is directly connected to the production process and, as a result of many years of development, forms the heart of our production process. The first stage is to have our stars design the products virtually. Then, our designers use the unique 3D configurator which creates a "hovering", free-standing version of the product with its design as well as the packaging, and lets you view the product from every possible angle. Any designer using our 3D configurator to create a product is unwittingly becoming witness to a world first. The data are fed from the configurator directly into the productions process and are accurately checked by machines at the place where the product will later be manufactured. In this way, the designer has access to direct information on the eventual quality of an exclusive product, and can therefore immediately improve it, or save it if satisfied, so that the product can be included in the star's collection and made directly available to the customer for purchase. If the star chooses, customers can even completely personalise the product or its packaging. Customers also use our 3D production designers for this.
8. What sort of categories and filters are available?
The categories by which people, brands, and businesses are sorted, can always be found at the top of our web pages. An overview of all possible main and sub-categories, including those which are currently empty, can be found using the "Categories" link in the bottom banner on our homepage. As well as categorisation, the platform also offers a filter function for VIPs according to country, region, city, year, and activity.
9. What are the 3D designer requirements for using my own pictures and designs?
In order to guarantee the highest quality, files should be at least 300 dpi (horizontal and vertical resolution) in their original size. For A1 prints and larger (poster size 594 x 841 mm), the picture quality should be around 200 dpi.
10. What is a VIP business partner and VIP manger?
VIP business partners and VIP managers are the partners of our stars, brands, and businesses who constantly support us with know-how and experience and help us to develop designs and exclusive product collections. When a new collection product is being created, our business partners supervise the VIPs at every stage, from the creation of the design to creating the product using the 3D designer.
11. What are limited editions?
The products offered by stars on www.vip-pictures.com are only available on our website. As a "Shopping Centre for Famous Faces" we offer exclusive products which are sometimes only available for a limited time, in a limited quantity, or with particular characteristics such as type, form, colour, size, or composition. This gives our limited editions particular value and means that they are one of a kind.
