Dubsado

This product was recommended by Brianna Park from Brianna Parks Photography

I’ve been a photographer for four years, and have tried almost all client management systems under the sun. While each of them has their own perks, I’ve never failed to get rid of Dubsado. Dubsado makes working easy. I personally love how easy it is to create workflows for my clients. Plus, having a client portal makes it easy for both of us, because we know where all the documents and conversations we’ve had can be found. I also love the customization Dubsado offers. Unfortunately, most crms have limited options when it comes to customization. I love that Dubsado allows me to change the fonts, colors, pictures, logos, and anything else I would like changed to make my brand.


Bloom

This product was recommended by Matthew Digati from Pro Real Estate Photo

Bloom is an excellent introduction into the world of CRMs for Professional Photographers. They offer a free 7-day trial and a $9/month plan which is an extremely affordable way to see if Bloom, and using a CRM in general, is the right choice for your business. I love Bloom because they understand the backend needs of creatives, and photographers specifically. Personally, I needed an affordable solution to freeing up my time. Much like most photographers, I prefer to be photographing and talking with clients as opposed to scheduling, emailing, invoicing, and everything else that used to take up half of my day. At the end of the day, Bloom offers you a cheap look into using a CRM in your business and will start you off on the quest to free up your time.


MarketCircle

This product was recommended by Patrick Nugent from NYC Photo

We have used Daylite for over a decade to manage our schedules and client relationships. The seamless integration across desktop and mobile helps us to maintain contact with our clients, view notes, make estimate and book appointments very easily. It is very helpful to be able to see the back log of emails when researching a note or trying to handle an issue ASAP, and Daylite has never let us down.


Studio Ninja

This product was recommended by Paul Richardson from Paul Richardson Photography

I’m a portrait photographer in the UK, and love Studio Ninja! I tried all of the major photography CRMs out, and this one best fit my workflow. It’s highly customisable, which saves me a ton of times. I’ve got different workflows setup for client types – and they are highly automated. For example they will receive automatic reminder emails close to a shoot date, contracts are automatically sent out.. etc. I no longer need to remember what stage I am at with any job, as it is clearly listed in the software. It’s also very well priced when compared to the other options, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.


ShootQ

This product was recommended by Abby from Wellpcb PTY LTD

Honeybook

This product was recommended by Abby from Wellpcb PTY LTD

Honeybook is another popular CRM for photographers. IT has ready to use contract templates. It has features like creating and tracking contracts on phone.IT has a Strong community, Useful financial management features, and starts at only $34/month.


Táve

This product was recommended by Tony Kelly from CameraGroove

This cloud-based CRM software has eliminated so many admin headaches for me. I’ve been using Táve to manage my photography and videography business since late 2017. It has saved so much manual effort and freed up a lot of time to allow me to focus on the creative aspect of my work. When a prospective lead enquires via my website, the lead is captured and automatically added to Táve. I can then have a custom workflow configured that can perform automated tasks such as emailing a quote to the lead or even sending an SMS. Reporting is powerful and I can easily see where I am making (or losing) money on a job. It’s also nice to be able to see my conversion rate month by month within the reports. Lead follow-up is automated and this feature alone has added a lot of additional bookings and had a significant impact on my top line. Táve’s pricing is very reasonable and I’m very happy to recommend it. The software pays for itself multiple times over because of the time and energy savings it provides.
