As an entrepreneur, there’s about 393,473 different apps being sold to you and it all starts to feel pretty confusing trying to figure out which ones are “needs” versus “nice to haves.”
But let me first take you back to the early years of Marissa Elise Photography. I started how many photographers do in the sense that I had paper contracts that I would have my photo clients sign and then I would collect paper checks (do people still use these?!) at sessions. I have never been one to like money talk so having to do it face-to-face felt soooo uncomfortable. Not to mention, there was so much room for error – losing the signed contract or check at a windy beach session, finding the time to cash the checks and keep record of them, and the list goes on…
Granted my little paper contracts did have my cute logo on it at the time but that wasn’t enough to make it both efficient and easy…
And then I was introduced to an app that quite literally transformed my business overnight. It’s a clientflow system called HoneyBook (cute name, right!).
So Honeybook allows you to do all this AND, not to mention, has excellent customer service. The platform itself is quite intuitive (coming from someone who is not super tech savvy) but if there’s ever a question, you get an answer super quickly either from chatting with a representative or through help guides. Oh, and there’s an app and website version so you can access all your back-end business information at any time super easily 🙂
Doesn’t it sound amazing? Like I started out saying, as a business owner, it’s so hard to determine just where to invest your money and what apps and subscriptions are actually necessary. Well, I’m 4 years into using HoneyBook and haven’t regretted it once! The amount of time, effort, and energy it has saved me has literally covered the cost of the subscription 10x over. And it’s not just for photographers – it’s for anyone who needs to do all the things I mentioned above!
But here’s the other thing. HoneyBook doesn’t just help me be more efficient and organized as a business owner, it 100% improves my client experience. My clients are always taken care with information quickly in their inbox, proposals that are clear to navigate, easy ways to pay invoices, and a streamlined place to refer back to with any questions.
It’s seriously a win-win.
So, I want to know, do you relate to the early days of Marissa Elise Photography and are you ready to experiment with something that could totally transform your business? If so, I have a SURPRISE for you. If you use this code you can get 25% off your first year of HoneyBook. WOWAH.
And if you’re already a HoneyBook user, please comment what part of the platform you find most helpful below – I want to hear from you!
There you have it. Honeybook, a clientflow platform that does it all, is the one app I use everyday in my business!
