I have used Harvest for three different businesses and you would have a hard time getting me to switch to a different product. I have no affiliation to Harvest and I get no kickback from them, I just use their product religiously!
Running my photography business is made easier with the right tools. To be successful and actually turn a profit, I need to track expenses, track time, invoice and receive payments, generate estimates, and manage project budgets. Harvest makes all of this simple for the non-business person. Once I got everything set up and entered in (tutorials), it was easy to see where my business was sitting financially. That's done through tracking payments (especially late payments), tracking projects, tracking budgets, and tracking clients. I can quickly transition an estimate into an invoice and store estimate approval for legal collateral (important as a small shop). Where I can't afford to have a team of people sitting in an office managing my operations, I need something that can allow me to track my business and stay up-to-date.
EASY TO USE
I’m not kidding when I say that this is a very easy software/application to use. They have a free option with limited features or a free trial to get you started. Let me know if you have any questions about using Harvest for your photography business. I’m happy to share my experience and help where I can.
