The Right Email Marketing Software For Photographers – Built Your Business Fast

If you run a photography business, and you’re wondering whether there’s good email marketing software for photographers, then you’re in luck.

The trouble with looking for email software is there are so many services available, which one should you use? Many of the paid software is good. However, for photographers you should look more broadly than just getting email marketing software.

What do I mean by “more broadly?”

I mean, you should look for photographer business software that includes email software. Not a stand-alone email service. This way you can have a centralized business management operation rather than a hodgepodge of software applications to run your business.

There is no question that using a quality email software application can do wonders for your business. However, why stop with just email marketing?
Did you know there’s software for photographers that in addition to having email capability, also offers scheduling (which nicely integrates with your email marketing), credit card processing, e-commerce platform, financial reporting, time keeping, payroll (if you hire people to assist), and more?

Frankly, the integrated, all-in-one solution means you’ll spend less time managing different software applications and entering data. When your photography business software is completely integrated, you can leverage and integrate your email marketing lists with other aspects of your business.

I’ll explain with an example:

Suppose you have 2,000 people on your email list. Suppose 500 of those people are regular customers with the remaining 1,500 one-off or occasional customers. With a comprehensive software platform, you can integrate your email software with your scheduling. This way, for example, if someone is scheduled for a photo-shoot, you can program the software to send out reminder email messages.

This is just one example of how the right email software can not only maintain your business, but build it.

Consider another example:
You can place a freebie option on your website that is an incentive for prospective customers to sign up for your e-newsletter. An incentive could be anything – a discounted photo-shoot, photograph touch-ups, or a simple informational booklet about hiring a photographer.

Once a prospective customer signs up, you can send them all kinds of useful information about what you do, what you can do for them as well as sending samples of your work. You can start and maintain a dialogue. If and when those prospective customers need a photographer, they’ll very possibly contact you.

Always think about more sales. Suppose in November you want to offer your client base gift cards. A solid photography software program includes the gift card creation (electronic if you wish). You can sell these gift cards via your email marketing.

The point is when you integrate your email marketing with your other business processes, you spend less time administrating, and in fact harness leveraging power to increase sales and revenues.
