This is the second part of my tips for time and sometimes even life savers for your business. You can read the first part here. The first two programs were about saving time during blogging and saving inspiration the second part is about two programs that save me time during the workflow with my clients.
When I first started my business I sent out every single contract by post and the client sent it back to me after they signed. What happened was, that either the contract got lost on the way to the wedding couple or on the way back to me. It took several weeks until I finally had a contract to file and sometimes they stayed for weeks in my purse. Then a photographer friend told me about Sign Now and I tried it. I use it since 2011 and I never returned to a printed contract. What it basically does is, it offers you the possibility to upload your contract, send it by mail to your client, they can fill it in on their computer and when they hit the „signed“ button the contract is sent to their and to your mailbox with all information and their signature. Knowing I can access my contracts from everywhere and never losing one again on the post way (as romantic as that sounds). I am very glad I found Sign Now to save me time and nerves.
Albumexposure helps us and our wedding couples to show their album and give them the chance to comment on each single spread. With this little online program we can assure that each and every album looks exactly like our wedding couples want it to look and it goes super smooth and fast. If you offer albums to your clients and you don’t work with a third party for the design and communication with your client you will definitely want to try album exposure.
Here are two screenshots showing the album of Nines and Paolo (there wedding is going to hit the blog next week ;-) ) . You can see the spreads and the comments below each spread. Some spreads are perfect in the first round (like the first image) and some need some little adjustments (like the second one). I can easily discuss changes with them for each single spread.
The team from Albumexposure has been so gracious to offer you a coupon code to try out their program. I am sure it will save you hours sending the album design to your customers and working on their feedback. Use this code HEJNAAEBLOG15. This is good for $15 off the First Annual Subscription with AlbumExposure.
