Feature Focus: Photo Sharing Platform

You are running a race, you see the photographer up ahead, and no matter how tired you are, you stand up straight, smile, and make sure you look awesome.  Why? You want to capture the moment. You want to SHARE your experience. And you want to share it while you are still pumped about the race.

Gone are the days of waiting 2 weeks to buy overpriced race photos. Race photos are an extension of the race experience and Lapio is changing how those photos are shared.

With the power of Lapio, photos can be shared immediately with friends and family though social media; increasing race and sponsor exposure.

Let’s take a look…

Uploading photos is easy. Simply choose the photo file, choose whether you want to add a watermark for additional brand exposure, and click submit to upload the pictures to your race page.

The photo platform is also mobile friendly, viewable on mobile phones and tablets. This ensures your race is accessible by participants and spectators, anytime, anywhere.

After photos are uploaded, participants can be tagged by bib number or tagged automatically by time when an additional timing mat is used for photos. Once participants are tagged, photos are shared directly to the participant’s Facebook timeline.  Think of photo sharing as free race advertising. More eyeballs equals more revenue.

The power of sharing photos through social media comes from the fact that your reach is limitless. Your brand strengthens with each share, like and comment. Lapio’s photo sharing platform allows you to enhance your participant’s race experience and your bottom line.
