I’m thrilled to introduce you to my friend Jenn Bays. Jenn has the breakdown on how to choose the best CRM for you, set your system up for success (without losing your mind), and how to hire a CRM set up with the right service provider - when you don’t have the bandwidth to do it yourself.

Today we deep dive and compare two popular CRMs head-to-head: Dubsado and Honeybook. Jenn tells you how to know which one is right for you based on your unique business needs - and what she shares might be a surprise!

Jenn is the owner and visionary of Success Beyond the Lens, a business management and marketing company for photographers. After spending years in the online space and realizing that her favorite clients, the ones she could help the most, were photographers who create BOMB photos but are drowning in their business. 

Now SBTL has grown into a full-service operations and marketing team ready to take your business to the next level while taking more and more off your plate!
