GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER WITH 17 HATS…
There’s been a lot of chatter in boudoir photography forums lately about studio management software. If there’s anyone who needed to get their act together, it was ME. As my business volume increased month to month, the need to invest became more and more apparent.
I discovered 17Hats Studio Management software during its pre-launch phase last year. After working on Studio Cloud software (free and subscription version) for a few years, this was a refreshing change. Game changer. It’s actually made my business operations fun to manage once again!
Less expensive than Tave or ShootQ, but more functional and dynamic than Studio Cloud, it has a lot of features packed-in. Clients and photographers began complimenting me how organized and well-run my business, which I noticed immediately after implementing 17Hats.
Curious? Here’s a demo…
Invoicing, bookkeeping and workflow traction are the bomb. If you manage payment plans, what you’ll miss here (vs. Tave) is automatic invoice billing (although I hear it’s in the works). Some comment it has less functional marketing capabilities than Tave or ShootQ, but I’d argue you can get pretty creative with your workflow and functionality here to make it worth your while.
All in all, this is the single most important investment I’ve made for my New Jersey boudoir business in the past year. It’s improved my quality of life as well as my overall client experience.
