Running a photography business is hard. There are so many moving parts and so many balls to juggle at any given time. And at the end of the day, most of us just love taking photos. It’s no secret that creative rock stars are often challenged by the discipline required to make sure that all of your tasks are getting tackled. Using a studio-management system like Iris to make your life easier is a gift that you can give to yourself and your business and will pay immediate dividends toward your success.

What can a studio-management system do for me?  Organization is critical to your success as a business owner—without it, you’ll waste time, fall short with your clients and miss out on revenue. Who needs that? No one. Here’s how you can get there quickly with some help:


Streamline your booking process.

An automated booking system allows you to skip the back-and-forth with your clients while you play the calendar game. You set up your open times, share them with your clients and allow them to book a session, sign a contract and pay their invoice in a snap. Bottom line: your clients will be amazed with how easy it is to book with you.


Streamline your new leads.

Integrating your website’s contact page with your studio management system will allow you to automatically follow-up with customized emails and turn your leads into clients via a fully automated experience. Bottom line: your new leads will immediately get an email back to them and get the entire process started without you lifting a finger.


Automate your workflows.

This is where the magic happens. In just a few minutes, you can create a workflow for each type of photography you do, and you’ll be able to automate your emails and leverage your customized to-do lists to help you stay organized and wow your clients. Bottom line: once you’ve worked through the steps of your process once, a studio-management system will automate it so that you won’t ever miss a beat.


Integrate your invoicing.

Setting up your invoice items and invoice templates gives you the freedom to send automated invoices by leveraging trusted payment processor integrations to accept payments immediately. It only takes minutes to connect to the processors you’re already using. Bottom line: our partnerships and integrations will take your business organization to the next level.


Brand your client’s experience.

You’ll be able to fully customize your lead page, emails, invoices and contracts to match your brand and impress your clients. Bottom line: your clients will have a consistent and professional experience with you from start to finish.


The extras matter, too.

Our custom location tools, goals and metrics and gallery integration with ShootProof are all examples of how a studio-management system will help you with every piece of your business organization. Bottom line: you’ll soon wonder how you ever made your business work the old way.
