After having been doing this job for 10 years, I can affirm that my main concern about my business is to optimize ever step of my process as much as possible.
As a photographer, I simply earn money when I shoot. Not when I do my accounting, not when I design the quotes or when I care about my Instagram. Even if, of course, all these small steps contribute to find clients, to find contracts, to do shoot and then to earn money.
So I made sense to try to optimize all these steps for be to be able to have more time and focus more on shooting.
I don’t remember at all how I found this platform, maybe through a book I’ve read. In any case, this platform put in touch entrepreneurs and freelancers, in many domains. From designers, to retouchers, to translators, illustrators, community manager etc… You can easily find someone depending of your needs.
On my side, I found there my Arabic translator and teacher, and my copywriter. Also a retoucher for some deep retouch when needed.
Ok, it’s a bit cliché. But actually, it depends how you use it. If you use the professional version of it, it can be an amazing tool. You can send an auto-message when you are closed, you can register different templates and even organize a kind of bot.
As I’m obsessed by the optimization, I prefer one million times a partners or a client to contact me by Whats’app when it’s about a quick question or any needs. I realized we spent so many times writing e-mails with many polite figures, just to ask one specific question.
I actually also have it open on my laptop on the second screen (you have a device version), and it makes my life easier as I can just take a look on a message since I’m working on something else and decide if it’s urgent or not.
Let’s just to conclusion.
Oh yes, I’m not different, I hate having to spend an hour every day working on my next Post on Instagram. You think about what to post, what is relevant with your current feed, what are the colors you are looking for… and in the end you don’t post anything.
It’s longer and more complicated to do that every single day than to take one hour per week to organize the next posts. I’ve tried many apps, and PREVIEW is my favorite so far!
Well, of course I have to talk about it! And I PROMISE you, it’s not because I created it myself, but because I won’t be able to move forward each day, knowing the direction I want to focus on, and keeping the faith when things take time to become concrete.
I’ve been trying to find a tool like this one for years, and in the end I had something like 3 tools with me all the time! One with all my goals and to-do lists, one standard agenda, but just to put my daily tasks, and my digital schedule to put my appointment. Definitely too much! So I decided to create this baby for me to be able to have everything in one place, and I added at the beginning a really step by step strategy to find a way to design daily tasks from a big dream.
Well, as you see, I’m in love with it!
I’ve been using this platform for photographers for ages now. But actually, it can be used by any service job. It’s easy, colorful, optimized, smart, and the team is always openminded about suggestions and ideas.
For a few months now, I’ve been designated Ambassador, and I’m delighted to promote this tool I definitely couldn’t live without.
You can create pick & choose quote, the client can approve online and it’s transformed to invoice automatically. The same for the contracts, signed on line in one click.
You know how I love Workflow, well it’s possible to organize your own workflow and to follow up each step of your process with your client.
