As a family photographer who loves Dubsado, I always have a great time sharing little tips and tricks with all of you here on the blog. I know that sometimes, though, it can feel overwhelming and like a lot to start. So, today, I wanted to share a few reasons I really love Dubsado and believe in it so that you might also feel inspired to give it a try! I’ll be honest, there is definitely work involved to set it up but I really do think it will change your life if you try!
Simply put, it’s the best friend you never knew you needed for our business. Dubsado helps you keep track of every single document you need for your business. From contracts, invoices, subcontracts, questionnaires, and emails… everything is kept in one spot for you. It doesn’t get easier than that!
Because everything is in one spot, your process can become much more streamlined. Goodbye sticky notes, hello digital workflow! Don’t wait until your 1.5 year old throws your sticky notes in the toilet and you lose track of what’s going on in your business (yes, that’s a true story!). PS, if you’re overwhelmed about where to start with workflows, start HERE!).
Dubsado also has amazing customer service. I’m not exaggerating! They respond to your questions and comments within 24 hours and they have calls to help you work through something if you need it. I mean, amazing is an understatement, really. And honestly, once you get the hang of Dubsado, it really does simplify so much of your business! For only $35/mo., you can’t NOT try it!
Finally, Dubsado really sets you apart as a professional. A streamlined, cohesive, and simple management software will show that you’re serious about what you do. A system like this shows you’re a professional, not just a glorified hobbyist. Seriously, think about it: are you holding your clients’ hands because you are giving them amazing customer service or because you’re afraid to automate your systems throughout your client’s journey?
Here’s my tough love: you’ve got to take a step back and face reality as a photographer… if you truly want to GROW your photography business, you’ve got to scale it with a CRM tool. That means you can’t have full control over every single system and process. There’s not enough time or enough of you to do that! So why not try Dubsado and see if it’s a good fit? There are so many other systems that lots of photographers use like Honeybook and 17Hats, and there’s nothing wrong with those! Find what works for you and run with it!!
