We’re adding a new way for users to try out next-generation features directly in their account.

In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be introducing certain features on an opt-in basis for those users who love trying new features and providing feedback. Our goal is to release certain features on an opt-in basis to provide a more focused approach to feedback and refinement before general release.

While we’re not announcing any specific public betas today, you can opt-in to notifications so that you’ll be alerted when one becomes available.

Leeann Marie

One of the leading wedding photographers in Pittsburgh, Leeann Marie has created an exclusive brand that is family focused for the cosmopolitan bride. She’s a national speaker for WPPI, has been in business for 9 years, and has a background in Industrial Engineering giving her a unique perspective on photography and business.  She photographs 25-30 weddings per year and only does office/admin work two days a week. Learn how Táve makes that possible for her. 

When I first started my wedding photography business, I had (what seemed like) an endless amount of time to work on my ideas, edits, and communication. I was out networking, writing blog post after blog post, managing social media like a pro, and mailing and receiving contracts.

Then life happened. I realized that sitting in my office for hours and hours on end was not doing any good for myself, my body, or my marriage. I needed a break! Add on top of that two kids in the past four years, and I really need my business to work for me instead of working for it!

Taking the time to invest in systems and tools that would help me succeed proved to be more and more important as my business (and family!) grew, and now I’m at a place where I have two small kids at home and only have office hours two days a week. I photograph 25-30 weddings a year still, and have received compliment after compliment about how well I prepare my brides for their wedding day, and how quickly their images are sent to their inbox.

And how has Táve stepped in to help? There are a million and one ways, but here I’ll outline some of the big places that I’m using their amazing technology to make my life easier and my business successful.

What Is a CRM?

CRM stands for customer relationship management. A CRM is a system or application that allows you to consolidate all your customer information into one location. Tracking the last interaction you had with a client is easy when you use a CRM system.

With a management system, you don’t have to worry about losing information about a client or being unable to locate information from your last phone call with them. A CRM puts all of your client information at your fingertips.
