BIRTH · BABY · FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi, I’m Jena

A family, baby + birth photographer in Golden British-Columbia, Canada

It was a good day when Dubsado came into my business life. It is a business management system that streamlines all of my projects, clients and tasks. Basically, it keeps my life organized, allows me to automate a lot of things, and save time. This means that I get to deliver a greater experience to my clients and get to use my work time more efficiently. A real win for everybody.

What is it like being a one-woman business?

Being the only employee at Jena Lee Photographs means that I wear many hats. I outsource as much as I can, but there are lots of things I just have to do myself.

As a one-woman business, I am the marketing team, the web-developer, the social media influencer, the brand ambassador, the book keeper, the financial planner, the content creator, the secretary, the editor … and don’t forget my main purpose, the photographer.

When I started my business I thought I would spend most of my time photographing, but I quickly learned that would not be the case. About 90% of my time is spent doing business things and only 10% taking photos. Luckily, I really enjoy business as much as I do photography. Having an amazing business management system like Dubsado guarantees that the business side of things is taken care of so I can have extra time for photos and personal life.

What is a CRM?

Dubsado is a business management system, or a customer relationship management (CRM) system.

It takes all of my business to-do’s and puts them in one place. Dubsado combines all of my projects, leads, emails, payments, tasks, and schedules into one online platform. With Dubsado, nothing gets forgotten or left behind because it’s all organized and automated. This means that the families I work with feel taken care of and I don’t have to store my to-do list in my head, Dubsado tracks everything for me.

When I integrated Dubsado into my business, I felt really good about being able to offer a more personalized service for people. Even if I am not at the computer, I love that emails can be sent and questions can be answered through Dubsado’s email automations and workflows. This way, I don’t have to be constantly checking things and can just trust they are taken care of for me.

My Favourite Dubsado Features

I chose to use Dubsado because I could customize everything to suit my brand and specific business needs. Set it and forget it is how I like to operate.

Some of my favourite things about using Dubsado for my photography business are:

PROPOSAL, CONTRACT + INVOICE COMBINATION

With Dubsado, you can combine a project proposal, contract and invoice together in one nice bundle.

This allows my clients to customize their own photography packages, sign their contract and submit their payment all within the same form. It’s important to me to keep things simple and efficient for my clients because they are often parents with new babies, so time is limited.
Everything is neatly put together and sent in one email instead of three.

CUSTOM WORKFLOWS

As with anything, you have to dedicate some time to setting things up, but the online support and tutorials made it easy.

When I first set up my Dubsado platform, I spent some time reading their blog and watching their tutorial videos. This information was easy to understand and allowed me to set everything up on my own.
Dubsado has a support chat box that has helped me when I have more specific questions, and they regularly host webinar education series to continually learn new tips and tricks.

At first it can seem daunting to set up your own CRM, but my experience starting out with Dubsado was easy.

WOULD RECOMMEND TO OTHERS!

Dubsado is the perfect CRM for anyone looking for a platform that offers powerful, customizable forms, contracts and workflows. My Dubsado lead capture form easily integrated into my Word Press website and triggers a workflow that takes care of my clients for me. My absolute favourite thing is waking up to new leads who have already had information shared with them and are ready to be contacted. All of the in between and behind the senes tasks are taken care of for me.

With Dubsado I get more done in less time, it’s amazing and I highly recommend to any other business owner / entrepreneur.
