Hey everyone, I just wanted to provide photographers out there a little help if you're distressed about creating estimates and invoices all the time. It's a time-consuming process to constantly create new estimates, new invoices, and track all the data that comes with it.
And while I was hesitant to spend any money on something I knew I could do on my own, I quickly discovered that it was well worth the cost because it saved me so much time. It's why we upgrade our computers, our gear, and our software. We should all want to be the best professionals we can be for the clients we seek to serve.
There are a lot of accounting options out there. I have used Freshbooks for the past 5 years and absolutely love them. They are an all-in-one small business invoicing and accounting solution, designed exclusively for freelancers and growing service-based business owners. Here are just a few of its most powerful features:
- Create and send professional-looking invoices in less than 30 seconds.
- Set up online payments with just a couple of clicks and get paid up to 2x faster.
- Track all your expenses and document receipts with your mobile camera and the FreshBooks mobile app.
- Find out when clients see your invoices and put an end to the guessing games.
And while I am an affiliate of Freshbooks and do earn a commission if you purchase any product through my links at no extra cost to you, I also just want you to be as educated as possible, regardless. If you hate promotion and just want information, that's totally fine too. Here is an attached video that can give you a quick idea of what you might be missing in your own invoices going forward. Hope it helps everyone and all the best!
