Streamlining your photography business | top 4 tools for photographers

Running a business can be difficult especially if you’re the one wearing all the hats. From marketing, catching up on admin, updating your socials, editing, client meetings and the like, it can quickly become overwhelming. Thankfully there are tools that can help streamline your business and help leave a lasting impression on your customers. Here are my top 4 recommended tools that will be sure to help your photography business run as smooth as possible.

1. A CRM

A CRM (Customer Relationship Management System) is everything you need to provide your costumers with an excellent client experience and manage customer data. Utilizing a CRM not only allows you to keep track of all inquires, sessions, calendar integration, and workflows but will also allows you to send contracts and invoices all in one place.

My personal favorite and what I utilize in my own business is Honey book. Honey book is hands down one of the easiest system to implement into your business . Truly a game changer. Feel free to use my referral link to get 25% off your first year.

Another great client management system that I haven’t used but have heard good things about is Dubsado. Feel free to check them out here.

2. Professional gallery delivery service

One of the best and easiest ways to leave a good lasting impression on your clients is by delivering your photos on a professional gallery delivery service. This gives you the ability to present your clients final gallery in an aesthetically pleasing way and allows for easy access and download options. A few gallery delivery services are Pic-Time, Pixieset, Pass Gallery, and ShootProof.

I personally use Pic-Time to deliver my final images. My favorite perks of Pic-Time is the ability to incorporate brand colors, slideshows, print shop and create seamless blog galleries all in one. Interested in utilizing Pic-Time? head over to their website and use code “3ECNHQ” to receive one month free.

3. Design Service

If your interested in creating custom design work that is easy to use and keeps your brand at the forefront I highly recommend using Canva in your business. Canva is a free user friendly design app that has hundreds of templates to choose from and allows you create anything from PDF guides, social media templates, email signatures and so much more. Plus enjoy perks such as brand kit management and Magic resize when you sign up for Canva Pro. Check out Canva here.

4. Create a Website

This is by far one of the biggest tools that can help streamline your photography business. Not only is a website good for showcasing your expertise and value of your services but it can also help your business by reducing overhead, streamlining business scheduling, and ultimately improving your clients experience. A few website builders are Showit, SquareSpace, and Flothemes. I highly recommend using showit although I hear that Squarespace is much more user friendly.

There is so much that goes into running a successful photography business but I promise that by having and implementing these tools into your business you will decrease the overwhelm and burn out and increase creative thrive mode!
