Get that photo booth money.

photo booth moneyOnce your photo booth business gets rolling and busy, you’re going to need to find ways to get contracts signed, send invoices, take payments, file receipts and keep your books up to date and just stay organized.

I try and run my photo booth rental business as paperless as possible.  Sure from time to time there are clients who want a paper contract or prefer to mail a check, but the vast majority of clients want to interact totally online.

There are a lot of apps and products out there to help you accomplish all of these tasks.  I have compiled a resource guide that I think you will find helpful.  I haven’t tried all of these, so I can’t vouch for all of them, but overall they have received good reviews.

    I think Tave and 17hats are worthy to be integrated into your list since they kind of do all of the above, or at least they use integrations to do all of the above.

    Hi Chris,
    Would you be open to adding our Electronic Quoting, Booking, Contracting and Payments systems using Gig Centric as another tool? I’ve been running our wedding and events businesses our the past 24 years and have used many of those tools. However, I’ve worked really hard on GigCentric to make it easy for business owners to use fewer tools through Gig Centric.
    If you need a link back let me know or if you’d like to write a guest post on our site too.
    Sincerely,
    Matt

      Sure Matt, I will add this tool.

    Hi Chris,
    Digisigner is also a good one for having contracts signed electronically. Thanks for the great articles!
