Top Backend Tools My Branding Photography Business Can’t Live Without


Top Backend Tools My Branding Photography Business Can’t Live Without

Successful businesses simply cannot live without processes, automations and workflows in place and today I’m giving you the inside scoop on my backend systems to help you jumpstart your branding biz!

  1. QuickBooks Self-Employed

I’m going to sound like a broken record here by the time you get to the bottom but ORGANIZING is key! As a creative, accounting practices make it pretty high up on the “Things that don’t excite me”. But you know what does excite me? An easy way for me to know exactly where my business is, and quite honestly if I have extra room in my budget to attend conferences like Showit United! Tracking expenses, mileage and easy tax prep come in handy when planning for your future, and when those happen more automatically they sure have my vote! 

  1. Honeybook

Keeping things organized whether you have a single client or staring down the barrel of a full calendar is essential! Honeybook saves me when it comes to incoming client inquiries, onboarding and communication, billing, branding photography workflow and management so that I can focus on the most important thing – serving well.

  1. Canva

Canva is the magical design drag and drop product! Helping you be more efficient with your time and saving you money. I don’t know about you but as a business owner there are only certain times of the year that I can fully dedicate myself to learning new programs and if you aren’t proficient in InDesign or have a Graphic Design budget yet – Canva is the ticket! Creating vision boards and implementation guides for brand clients has never been easier, not to mention getting the word out with tweaks to thousands of beautifully made templates sized perfectly for social media and print alike! 

  1. ShootProof

I could go on and ON about ShootProof. The capabilities are endless really and if you currently do not have a budget for both a gallery hosting site and a CRM – doing both on this platform will help you stay organized and give you a hassle free way to send all that hard work you’ve done over to your clients. 

  1. Flodesk

Helps me create beautiful, professional email marketing campaigns that are both eye catching and highly effective. The process is simple and things like building email lists, creating newsletters and announcing events are streamlined all in one happy place!

I hope you find these helpful and though I receive perks from these affiliate links, I would never recommend something to you that I don’t fully believe in. 

Have questions? I’ve got you!

I’m in these programs day in and day out and welcome any chance to help other business owners to move the needle.  I’m right here with you and for you. REALLY! 

I absolutely love helping other talented photographers just like you serve the community they love and cultivate a life they deserve. You can shoot me voice dm for a quick check or set up a 1-on-1 for a complete walkthrough and setup!
