Must have resources for photographers shared by California photographer Ashley Carlascio

Hey there fellow photog friend! I’m so glad you’re here!

One question I get asked quite often is about what programs I use daily that help organize and streamline my business. As you know, being an entrepreneur can get overwhelming quick if you don’t have programs, systems and workflows you LOVE. Over the years, I have tried many different websites and programs and I’ve settled on a few that I’ll never again go without. So I thought, why not share them with you here!

All of these programs below have truly changed my business and, I believe, along with some hard work and hustle, made it what it is today. I strongly encourage you to give each of these a try and see what a huge difference they can make in your business as well!

Honeybook is an all-time favorite of mine! Not only does it keep all of my inquiries, bookings, contracts, invoices, questionnaires and emails in one place… it also helps make the experience for my clients just as simple and streamlined as well. This Client Management System (CMS) is a game changer!

Meet my biz best friend, Flodesk. After years of trying to build emails and newsletters and getting frustrated at the outcome and lack of branding abilities, I stumbled upon Flodesk. Say hello to gorgeous, completely customizable templates and 100% brand-friendly!! Never again will my subscribers receive boring emails all thanks to Flodesk.

As a photographer, delivering beautiful galleries I’m proud of is, of course, very important to me! I strongly believe that goes further than just beautiful images. An easy client experience as well as perfectly organized and aesthetically pleasing galleries is just as important! Pixieset provides that to my clients as well as making all of the back-end work easy!

Okay, please tell me I’m not alone when I say working in Pinterest can be totally overwhelming! I used to spend hours sitting at the computer having no idea what to pin and when and keeping up with pinning original content consistently just didn’t happen! That’s when I found Tailwind. Tailwind is a Pinterest scheduling website that truly changed my life… and my Pinterest analytics!

The Dare to Begin Mastermind with Morgan Kennedy is a program I invested in that really changed my business! The mastermind was a 12 week course that included weekly group meeting, 15+ hours of online content, 20+ PDFs, worksheets, and guides AND a private Slack channel with the group giving all of us 24/7 support! Morgan is an incredible photographer herself and learning from her was the best investment I made for my business in 2020!

Well friends, I sincerely hope this helped and made your search for quality systems and programs easier! I seriously challenge you to give each of these a try, you’re not going to believe the difference they can make! Enjoy!

xo, Ashley

Full disclosure: If you use one of these links, I will receive a small kickback, but I am not being sponsored to share about these programs… I just love them that much!!
