And with the help of Dubsado, I am not mediocre, I am a total boss babe!
When I first started Madalyn Yates Photography, I was doing everything on my own. Sending out emails, creating contracts, sending out invoices, all the things. And to be honest there isn’t anything wrong with that. If you like to do it yourself, then go for it but switching over to Dubsado has helped me feel fore organized and confident that everything is being delivered in a timely manor. And as a business owner, who is with me on learning how to maximize your time? It’s essential! (And if I am completely honest, I am sure there are things in Dubsado that I still don’t use fully but from what I do use, its AMAZING!)
Dubsado recently launched the Scheduler tool and that has been so helpful for me when it comes to scheduling Mini Sessions (check out our Spring Mini’s HERE!) The scheduler allows me to create a calendar and share my availability to those who are interested in booking a session with me. From there, Dubsado sends me an email saying someone booked and then I can send an invoice right then and there! So so convenient!
Another awesome thing about Dubsado is the Financial Goals! As a business owner making sure you’re earning profit to pay bills is important, am I right? YES! So Dubsado has a wonderful tool where you can set up your financial goal for the month and then it will keep track for you! So awesome. Not only is it nice that it tracks it for you but it’s also somewhat motivational for me at least! You get excited when you meet your goal or even better, when you overflow you goal!
Sending invoices through Dubsado couldn’t be any easier! You simply go though your invoice tab for the job and then apply an email to them! You can personalize your templates or create a new one for each invoice! You can receive payments through PayPal, Square or Stripe too! And for those who write checks or pay can, you can simply apply the payment towards their balance and it will reflect on your job page! So simple!
All this being said, I am totally team Dubsado and I absolutely recommend them to every creative whether you’ve been doing business for a while and you’re still frustrated about organization OR if you’re brand spankin’ new! It’s a great resource with new things happening all the time! To sign up click HERE. Trust me your life will be changed!!!!
