It’s the mossssst wonderful tiiiiiiiime of the yearrrrrrr…
Okay, okay, okay, shopping is NOT what the holidays are all about, but it sure is fun! I love Black Friday every year because of all the amazing deals I can snag for my business. Because hello, it’s a write off!
Also – when you hear ‘write off’ does anyone else think of that amazing scene from Schitt’s Creek? The first time I saw it I laughed so hard I about wet myself.
I’ve collected some of my favorite Black Friday deals for photographers, and I’m so excited to share with you. I take advantage of almost every single one of these each year, and can honestly say that while I’d totally pay full price for a lot of these things, it’s certainly nice to not have to.
Dubsado – If you’ve been around here for a while, you know that I wax poetic about Dubsado whenever people ask what keeps my business organized. I’ve tried other CRMs, and others just simply don’t compete with Dubsado. I recently started using the proposal function and WOW. It’s seriously so good!
Honestly I cannot say enough good things about Dubsado. It’s the best CRM out there, and it’s not even the most expensive on the market. With this Black Friday sale, you can get an even better deal: $50 OFF their yearly Starter or Premier plan, with sales on monthly plans too. Here’s the breakdown:
Starter: $15/month or $150/year (reg. $20/$200)
Premier: $35/month or $350/year (reg. $40/$400)
Plus, stack my affiliate code, maddiepeschong, on top for an even better deal. If you’re already on the Starter plan, you can upgrade to the Premium and take advantage of this sale, too.
Cloudspot – 5 months of Cloudspot for $5/month OR 50% Off First Year on Any Monthly or Annual Plan. I use this system to delivery every single client gallery, and I love it. I’ve hopped around to a few different gallery systems, and Cloudspot is my favorite. Plus, I’ve met a few of the team members and they’re the kindest people. I’ve been so impressed by their client experience and customer service!
Cloudspot also recently added a CRM component (Cloudspot Studio) INCLUDED with your subscription. While I don’t use it personally, I’ve referred numerous clients to get started with Cloudspot because it’s a super easy CRM that has everything you need. The simplicity and fact that it’s truly built for photographers makes it easier to get started than a lot of other CRMs that are wonderful, but overwhelming. Since Cloudspot Studio is included in your subscription, you get it when you sign up!
Haute Stock – Some may think it’s weird that I’m a photographer and I have a stock photo subscription, but sometimes even those of us who know our way around a camera can use some help! Good stock photography can be super expensive to purchase and to make yourself.
Haute Stock makes good stock photography so much more attainable for those of us who need to be using pretty images in every facet of their business. I’ve used these images as backgrounds for marketing graphics and they’re so gorgeous and easy to use. These would also be a total game changer for anyone running an online business, or rocking an MLM biz.
New subscribers can join Haute Stock at a discounted rate of $299 per year (25% off) or $100 off the annual price ($399).
The Legal Paige – It can be expensive to get contracts for your business but it’s SO necessary. The Legal Paige is my favorite resource for contract templates, and she does killer Black Friday sale. Her shop is 40% off (no code needed) and you can get an additional $10 off with the code MADDIEP10.
Flodesk – Email was another thing on my miles-long to-do list before I found Flodesk. This software makes sending emails so fun and easy, I genuinely look forward to communicating with my people this way. With my code, you can get Flodesk for only $20/month. Totally worth it!
Imagen – I’m all about tools that save me time. This AI software is CRAZY and can save you loads of time when it comes to editing. They’re offering 30% off for Black Friday.
