Business sense continued: Organization

leave a comment »

While I’ve already lightly touched on the importance of business knowledge for a successful photography business, I think we should re-visit the topic and elaborate on the importance of organization for your business.

Not just organization as in “Is your office clean?” or “Are your papers filed correctly?” but more about, “Are you correctly keeping track of your expenses and income in one place?” or “Are your business bank accounts set up correctly and organized efficiently?”

While office organization is also key, having your ducks in a row in terms of financials and documentation are key. Moms with Cameras blogger Emily discusses here how she organizes her bank accounts for her business and why it works for her.

Also on her blog, she has a specific category just for business blog posts, all of which could be beneficial to you at the start of your business. This post is specifically about taxes and organizing your income to minimize your tax losses…very important for new photographers or any new business owner to understand.

There are also plenty of money tracking resources for photographers to purchase that are already developed and ready to use. Tennille King of TK Business & Design offers Biz Books that help photographers easily plug their numbers into spreadsheets that track profit and loss, mileage, sales tax, vendor and client information, among other things.
