5 tips to streamline your photography business

When we created Iris Works, our goal was to create efficiencies and eliminate anxiety. So we know a thing or two about ways to help you have a happier and more successful business. Here are five of our favorite ways to dial in today!


Simplify your booking process.

Iris Works + Booking is the easiest way for you to streamline your booking system. Leveraging the power of Iris Works and the new booking platform, your clients will have an experience that lets them choose a time on your calendar, sign their contract, and pay their deposit seamlessly. We’ve eliminated the client back-and-forth that so often takes you away from the things that you love to do.


Get a good great contract.

If you don’t already have a great contract, it needs to go straight to the top of your to-do list. Not only does a strong contract protect you—it protects your clients. Outlining all of your business practices eliminates any grey areas. Of course, we love The LawTog for all of your business contract needs!


Make it easy.

Creating automated workflows will give you peace of mind that no steps are being missed for you or your clients. Automating your booking, invoicing, contracting, questionnaires and emails will ensure that all of the details are being handled for you. Using Iris Works to map out and execute your workflows will ensure consistency in your business—and an amazing experience for your client.


Pay attention to social media.

Post often, always be on brand and tell your story. If there’s one thing that we know, it’s that consistency is key with social media. Share your current work, create ways for your followers to engage, share tips and tricks and make sure that YOU shine through in your posts.


Ask for more business.

If you aren’t already asking your current clients for referrals, you’re missing out on a great way to fill the lead funnel. We recommend creating an automated email that gets sent out after you’ve delivered your images. It’s the perfect time to ask happy clients to send their friends and families your way.
