Let me save you hours upon hours of unnecessary work and share my THREE go to websites I use everyday in my photography business! When I first started out, I didn't have a solid system. It was so hard to build a consistent brand without any consistency! If you're a photographer just starting out- these THREE websites will help you stay organized, better serve your clients, and most of all save you time so you can focus on other important areas of your business.
At this point in my business, I don't know what I would do without this platform. Square keeps track of EVERYTHING you need to run your business successfully! They make it so easy to book appointments, create and send invoices (with your contracts attached- double win!), keep track of your finances/ taxes and so much more! You can even build your own custom website to display products and services you are offering. Ditch using services like Venmo or Paypal for clients to pay you and switch to Square to give your clients the ultimate professional experience! Square is an absolute must have!
Have you ever wondered how I make all of the graphics for my Instagram and blog posts?! The answer is Canva! Canva is an AMAZING platform and total GAME CHANGER for building consistency in your brand. From IG templates, logo creation, business cards, and advertisements... there's nothing Canva doesn't offer! With hundreds of fonts and colors to choose from, you will be able to define your brand in no time using this service. There's even a Canva app that allows you to design on the go! Canva completely changed the forefront of my business and I recommend it to everyone looking to up level their brand.
I've used this platform from the very beginning of my business as a tool to professionally deliver my client's galleries. As the years have passed, Pixieset offered even more great features to give your client's the ultimate experience when working with you. Pixieset now features an online store where client's can purchase prints directly from you (aka more money in your pocket)! The photos are sent to a professional lab to ensure your client's are getting the absolute best quality prints you could ask for. Pixieset also features a custom website you can build to display all of your professional work. You absolutely NEED Pixieset!
How much do they cost?!
The BEST part of these websites are they don't cost an arm and a leg in monthly subscription fees! All three are very affordable options to give your business that extra level of professionalism you need for success. So what are you waiting for?! Start saving yourself TIME and MONEY when you sign up for all three! You'll be so glad you did.
