Below are some of the amazing tools I love using to help me run my business. I am all about getting what "needs" to be done automated so that I can spend more time actually being a photographer and actually have free time to spend with my family. Over and over again I hear photographers say they don't have a great work/life balance or feel like they spend all day in the office and I never wanted it to be like that. Yes, some things are paid programs but it's all about what you think it's worth to get some time back. What is your hourly rate? How long does it take to do that task? How much does the automated version cost? Usually the program is "more affordable" than your paid time. I'd love to know what you think about these and if they help you out as much as they help me!

CoSchedule is a Wordpress plugin that allows you to visualize your blogging schedule on a calendar, as well as schedule your social media for the corresponding post at the same time. All-in-one calendar to write, plan, publish, promote & automate all in one place.
This is the only program that posts your Instagams for you vs just reminding you to do it! They have a loophole around Instagram's no auto-publishing rule (they are real people publishing with real devices). This one was big for me because I hated being reminded to post up to 4x per day. It also allows you to write the first caption for your tags!!
Tailwind allows you to schedule your pins for Pinterest and allows them to "drip out" over your own personalized set schedule, instead of your followers seeing a large chunk of pins whenever you decide to try and get caught up. It also allows you to see analytics for followers, pins & boards!
Formerly Latergramme, upload & schedule your Instagram posts from your computer. I don't use this as much anymore now that I use Schedugram, but it's still the best way I recommend my clients upload their photos to Instagram. No more screenshots or emailing yourself photos to post to Insta. Post from computer, post from app.
Seriously can't rave about this one enough, it's my LIFE! I've tried all the client management systems out there & promise you, this is the best one out there. Client data, contracts, invoices, expenses, questionnaires, workflow, lead data, lead followup emails - ALL. AUTOMATED. All the functions & more, new features added weekly by request.
Ever see these gorgeous, styled desktop images all over Instagram and websites? Time & time again, the best ones are from Shay of SC Stockshop. I'm no good at flatlay photography so I love that she has so many colours and objects to choose from for her styled flatlay imagery.
