When you have one home for your entire business, you save time so you can focus on what matters most: your clients and your passion.
Ontraport comes with several done-for-you systems. Whether you want to launch client feedback surveys, recapture lost sales or send out monthly photography newsletters to your list, our plug-and-play Setup Wizards make it possible to customize and launch your marketing campaigns in minutes.
We know that learning new software can be daunting, which is why we’ve made it easy to get started with Ontraport. When you sign up, we offer you over-the-top helpful support services to make sure you have what you need to grow for the long haul. Our highly rated support team is ready to answer all your questions via chat, email and screen share, and you can quickly learn how to use any feature using our 150+ Ontraport University video courses.
Most professional photographers use some other software before they upgrade to Ontraport. It’s a common tale: You start with one tool and, over time, keep adding more and more until you realize you need an all-in-one system that can handle your growth.
Ontraport’s business software for photographers integrates with almost everything, so you’ll be able to run Ontraport alongside your existing systems for as long as you need.
When shopping for software, you’ll want to take your entire business into account — not just the marketing, just the sales or just the client management side of things.
Whether you choose Ontraport or not, we recommend making sure your CRM and email marketing software includes the following features, at the very least:
- A website builder for photographers to share their business with the world online
- A system for capturing leads and sending marketing emails
- Client management software for photography businesses to keep track of clients and prospects
- A payment processing tool to collect orders and charge credit cards
- A membership site component to launch a client portal
As your business grows, you’ll probably need more sophisticated tools than standalone email marketing or website software. With everything running in Ontraport, you’ll have all you need now and in the future — all under one roof so you won’t have to switch platforms as your business scales.
Ontraport makes it super easy to create professional websites for photographers. Simply use one of our prebuilt website templates or, if you’d rather start from scratch, you can use our drag-and-drop editor to customize your pages to look exactly how you want. You’ll also get access to our web form builder, which lets you create fully customizable forms to capture details about your leads and clients.
The best part? All these features live under the same roof as your photography sales software, CRM, marketing automation and more.
We get it — you started your photography because you’re creative, and love capturing your clients’ most memorable moments.
But you don’t get to spend as much time on your passion if you’re too busy learning how to market your photography business using a bunch of single-point solutions for all your essential tasks: following up with contacts, sending out marketing messages and tracking campaign performance.
With Ontraport, you have everything you need to market yourself in one place: SMS and email marketing for photographers, a campaign-builder, marketing analytics tools, lead source tracking and more. Instead of dealing with multiple integrations or pulling data from different sources to get things done, Ontraport lets you handle all your marketing needs in one place.
