Studio Ninja studio management for photographers
Are you a photographer struggling to keep on top of your workflow? lets face it as creatives we want to be behind the camera, but most of the day to day work we have to do in the running of a successful wedding and portrait photography business is marketing, responding to emails and enquires, keeping track of any live leads, scheduling meetings, managing our time and workflow and and staying in touch with your clients to provide a fantastic service. I have tried a few different solutions to help me run my business but when I was at WPPI a couple of weeks ago I saw that shoot proof who I use for my digital delivery and online galleries had now offered tight integration with studio Ninja I bought I would take a look.
WOW Studio Ninja is awesome!
After arriving back in the UK after a busy week at WPPI in Las Vegas the first thing I did was sign up for their free 30 day trial, no credit card required and see how it would work for me. After spending an hour or so setting up the software to suit my needs the first thing I did was to integrate the Studio Ninja enquiry form into my website and within a couple of hours had my first live enquiry and this gave em the chance to see how this could work for me with a live enquiry.
I received an email notification detailing the enquiry and went to the leads section and there was the lead with all the necessary info already in the system, name, email and phone number, location and date of wedding without me having to lift a finger or remember to input it later if I were out on a shoot or too busy to deal with it right now. This on its own is a massive help but as I had setup a workflow to suit my needs with a sequence of events it now came into its own with an email really going out and a link to my wedding photography pricing page. Within an hour I had a conversation with the couple confirming my top collection along with an engagement shoot, a quote had been accepted and they signed the online booking form.
All of this saved so much time and it all worked flawlessly with the couple saying how easy and professional it all seemed and having their own client portal means they can see their correspondence, booking form and invoices as well as their online gallery with shootproof integration all being on the same page!
Studio Ninja runs in the cloud on your web browser and also on a fantastic app on your phone so you have access to the same info in your pocket when your not in front of your computer. The support team at Studio Ninja have been amazing, even though they are based in Australia they have a fantastic live chat system right there on your Studio Ninja window in your browser and they respond to any questions you may have within minutes. This is a major plus point in my book as we are all busy people and getting a response within minutes from their small friendly team who really know how the software works is just fantastic service. If their is something it does not do for you right now they are keen to listen to everything photographers have to say and if its a good idea they will implement it in a future update.
If you want to try out Studio Ninja for yourself head over to their website for your free 30 day trial and they have kindly given me an exclusive discount code just use the code DOWNIE50 for 50% off your first year with Studio Ninja.
