17hats is a business management software made to end the chaos that comes with being an entrepreneur. I love them so much, I just signed on to them for two years! So I thought it was about time I explained my great appreciation for this company.
It’s pretty awesome! You can see your weekly schedule at the top. It even has the weather and the time of sunset (!!!), which, as a photographer is kind of a big deal. I need to know the time golden hour is to schedule my sessions but also if it’s raining all of a sudden (because Houston weather is so unpredictable), I can call my client and reschedule their session.
I can also see what quotes, contracts, invoices, and questionnaires are pending or past due so I can send reminders to make sure my clients get that done. You can even see recent client activity like when an invoice gets paid or a questionnaire is viewed.
You’ll notice a business workflow in the middle, which is a part of 17hats’ World of Easier initiative and Business Makeover, a new business course for their customers starting January 2019. I won’t spend too much time discussing it but basically, it walks you through the process of setting up client workflows which is great for photographers who do various types of photography sessions (ie: wedding, engagement, family, seniors, maternity, etc). Pretty rad!
Oh wanna know what’s even better? They have an app for your phone! We don’t always have our laptops on us or sometimes we just prefer our phones. Perfect for those on the go transactions 🙂
The one thing I don’t use is the timer but maybe I will in the future. As of right now, it looks like this because I haven’t set it up yet:
I think it would be more beneficial for those who outsource their tasks like editing. You can easily track per hour then select “this task is billable,” and have 17hats summarize the costs for you.
Alright y’all! I think this is enough information for now. Feel free to drop some comments below! If you do sign up, let me know what you think 🙂 It’s seriously life changing and you’ll finally have time to do that load of laundry that’s been piling up 😉
