On today’s show, we have Colorado wedding photographer, Kara Cavalca who shares with us her wisdom on how to successfully manage and scale a photography business.
Wedding photography is a tough and competitive business. But Kara has managed to grow and scale her one-woman show to the next level. You will learn how she is using an all-in-one software, Sproutstudio to manage all her business needs ranging from invoicing to digital storage. Additionally, this software, which is specially built for photographers is also capable of sending out automated emails so that you can follow up with your clients in a hassle-free manner.
Having spent more than four years in this space, Kara shares how she differentiates herself in a crowded marketplace. She opens up her playbook to reveal what it takes to be successful in this business. This show is full of some great nuggets guaranteed to help you out. Enjoy!
