2. LET YOUR CLIENTS CHOOSE PAPER OR PLASTIC

Remember that line "Show me the money!" in the movie Jerry Maguire? This line likely reflects the public's perception of professional athletes — and lawyers too it would seem. But with lawyers, perception is not reality. Too often law firms have severe cash flow problems thanks to slow settlement payouts, slow or partial payments, and deadbeats.

Accept-by-Phone enables small law firms like yours to improve cash flow by accepting credit cards without having to establish an expensive merchant account. Accept-by-Phone is a flat rate, telephone-based credit card processor that enables you to accept all major credit cards (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa).

Rather than bothering with a credit card terminal and the panoply of monthly fees, you simply call Accept-by-Phone's toll-free telephone number to process a transaction using the automated prompts. Accept-by-Phone deposits the funds into your bank account within 24-72 hours. The only equipment you need is a telephone. If you have a Web browser, however, you can view your Accept-by-Phone transactions in real time by logging into your secure, online merchant control panel.

Accept-by-Phone charges a one-time set-up fee of $79. Thereafter, you pay a monthly fee of $5. Accept-by-Phone applies a flat 3.95% discount rate to your transactions. For example, it would cost you $1.98 to accept a $50 payment. There are no long-term contracts or monthly minimums for charges or amounts nor is there a cancellation fee. Learn more about Accept-by-Phone.

3. GINKGO FOR YOUR MEDIA

Old media may invoke feelings of nostalgia as you view events from the Kennedy assassination and the famous smooch in Times Square on VJ-Day to your own wedding or child's first birthday party. Yet the old movies and pictures are quickly losing their luster and you may be losing your personal media history. Have you considered a digital transformation?

Many companies in this space specialize in just one form of media, but iMemories handles just about everything, including photos, film, cassette tapes, video tapes, and vinyl records. iMemories even handles the formats that never gained wide acceptance such as betamax, reel-to-reel tapes, and 8mm film. In addition to photo prints, iMemories can also convert negatives and 35mm slides.

How does iMemories work? Upon receipt, iMemories inventories each piece of media and assigns a bar code for tracking. Your media then goes through digital conversion and is stored in anticipation of the final DVDs being produced. iMemories processes photos using the industry-standard PhotoShop. Photo touch up, color correction, and image optimization are included with each scan. When your order is completed, iMemories ships your original media plus the completed DVDs back to you.

For an extra charge, iMemories can place your audio, movies, or photos online in a secure, password protected account for you to enjoy anywhere and share. There's nothing to upload or complicated software to install. Just login with a Web browser.

iMemories can also enhance your original source material by editing it and adding music and special effects. You can order these iMemories movies in an iPod-compatible format for watching on the go. iMemories can also restore damaged photos and video tapes.

Pricing varies depending on the options you select. For example, iMemories charges 99 cents/photo without an accompanying slide show or $1.49/photo with a slide show. Learn more about iMemories.
