Growing your photography business can sometimes be a challenge, but having the right set of tools to guide you through those challenges can give you the highest rate of success. Here are some of the ways that you can take charge of your business by using Wesat to pilot you through those challenges.
Staying organized in a business that requires you to be on the road and traveling to your clients 24/7, such as photography, can make staying organized with all your clients, projects, to-do lists, and documents a challenge.
As a photographer, you should be able to focus on your project at hand and feel at ease with your current work and what's to come in the future.
Clients allow you to keep your list of clients connected to the rest of your workflow by making it easy and quick to add customers/consumers/users, etc. Then you can easily create projects that link directly to those clients.
This shows you your clients list and where you can add new clients quickly
Adding clients is one thing, but being able to view projects for each of your clients in a matter of seconds is another. Take Gabby for example. You, as the photographer, have agreed to provide your photography skills for her large wedding coming up. You create a project that is applied to her so you won't miss a thing.
Projects are your client communication hub. You'll be using your projects to send emails, contracts, invoices, proposals, and questionnaires to your clients. You can even keep track of tasks for each of your projects.
You can get access to everything related to Gabby's Wedding right from projects
Creating a clean and unique proposal to send to your clients determines the difference between a prospect client and a paid client. You can create a professional proposal outlining the services that you will provide for Gabby for her special day as shown below:
The client can view and accept all documents that you send them through their own unique client portal
Running your business either alone or even as a small team can be a challenge, but being able to keep you on track by giving you reminders, sending your documents, and even keeping your project statuses automatically updated can mean more time for you to put towards serving your client.
Automations does just that. It's like having your own personal assistant to help you make sure all the mundane tasks that are important to you are completed.
Take the below for example. Whenever you get a new client, you can set automations up so it will automatically create a task that will remind you to set up a meeting with your new client or maybe send them a New Client questionnaire.
Having the flexibility of providing your clients with different kinds of payment plans opens up even more growth opportunities for your photography business. Imagine those large weddings in which you have a client asking for a full suite of photo shoots. That can be a significant amount of money, and having a structured payment plan that both you and the client agree on is crucial.
After Gabby has agreed on the proposal, you can create an invoice for your project. In your invoice you can set a payment structure that is acceptable for everyone. This allows you to feel at ease that you will get paid based on the invoice that was sent to your client.
These are just a few ways Wesat can guide you to overcome many of the challenges you face with your photography business. Most importantly though, it will give you the peace of mind you need to successfully run your business. This way you can focus on what's most important, which is being an amazing photographer for your clients.
