Get everything you need to get the backend of your business streamlined, automated, and working for you inside Dubsado in just 10 days

You ❤️ making photos and spending time with your clients...

Let's Make Magic

But you know there is so much more to running a successful photography business than that.

You tried to create systems on your own and it isn't going well

Let me guess...

Shakes head yes

You've watched all the tutorials, but you aren't sure what you want the end result to be.

There are so many features, you aren't sure which ones you need in your business.

You considered a done-for-you option, but either you couldn't afford it and/or wanted to learn HOW so you could make changes yourself.

Your follow-up game needs work, because you are losing money by not checking back in with leads that don't immediately book.

Missing out on making more money

Like that time you almost missed a session because it wasn't on your calendar (let's not do that again)

living in fear of a one-star review

Things are falling through the cracks because you are still doing everything manually, refusing to embrace automation

constantly scrambling

Yup, that's me!

But sometimes your business feels like dumpster fire behind the scenes

You started your business to create beautiful photos for the families that hire you...

You're trying to do it all and you need help.

Hiring an assistant might not be in the budget, but do you realize how much automation software can do for your business?

But here's the thing...

I started my photography business in 2012, offering in-home family + newborn photography sessions.  

A BIG part of building your dream business is having systems that work for you, so I spent a lot of time learning the ins and outs of CRMs to make my backend more streamlined. 

It was like having my very own virtual assistant at $40/month instead of $40/hour.  

But just because I am obsessed and spend my days thinking about automations, doesn't mean you have to. 

When I am not photographing my amazing clients or building out a Dubsado account on a VIP Day, you can usually find me at the pool or Disneyland 🤩

 


Hey, I'm Colie. my superpower is making complicated shit simple, particularly systems strategy + automations.

Meet your Dubsado-guru

Seven years ago I pulled the trigger on my first CRM and it was a game-changer.  Two years later I discovered and went all-in with Dubsado. Now I help other creatives implement Dubsado in their own businesses.

Turning my computer off each day at 3pm when I pick my kid up from school, no more responding to clients into the wee hours of the morning

Surprising her with a trip to Disneyland, without worrying about my business while I ride Dumbo.

Answering leads with a few clicks and the help of my canned emails/pre-written proposals saves so much time and stress.

Booking a new client in less than 5 minutes after our phone consultation. Best dopamine hit is the sound of my phone alerting me to a Square payment.

I am a confessed recovering workaholic. With Dubsado I said goodbye to the stress and hello to ...

Sounds too good to be true?

It's not. Here's why...

Create template forms, emails, and workflows so that you never have to start from scratch again

Send a single proposal to get clients booked, scheduled, invoiced + paid in less time than it takes to make a cup of coffee

Manage all your communication, payment schedules, questionnaires, and more per client in one central location.

Set up your Dubsado account to look exactly like the rest of your brand

What if I told you that with Dubsado you could...

I'm ready for this!

You can totally setup your own systems in Dubsado... but will you?

Don't worry, I can help with that!

The CRM Blueprint for Dubsado

Say hello to...

Join the blueprint

You will never again show up to a session to realize you forgot to send a final invoice or email communication.

CRM Blueprint isn't like other Dubsado courses

Every aspect of this course was written for photographers and can be applied to your own photography business.

Every aspect of this course was written for family photographers. Each template, canned email, and workflow can be applied to your own family photography business.

It has a no fluff approach in bite-sized modules to get your Dubsado setup in days, not months.

A self-paced experience with you in control of how quickly you implement your setup.

Exclusive access to your teacher (that's me!) via Q&A submissions which are answered live or in loom videos.

Access to updates and additional lessons added in the future.

Let me start by saying I loathe online classes. Or rather, I'm a terrible online learner. I have bought numerous PDFs over the years and taken a handful of online courses, none of which I ever made my way through to the end. NOT THIS COURSE. 

I worked through Colie's CRM Blueprint in three days. Granted, they were three long and focused days, but nonetheless I checked off every last thing and was welcoming new clients into my new Dubsado by day four. Colie's CRM Blueprint is structured intuitively; every step is laid out in a way that makes you feel like she's right there with you holding your hand. I already knew Colie was a great teacher, but this course blew me away - it was worth every penny, and then some!

The course was set up so streamlined and easy that I was able to complete it within two weeks. It made my life so easy. All the canned emails, the templates... like all the things. It was just set up very nicely with so many video tutorials, and she was having so many Zoom Q&A calls. Those were really helpful for everybody in the course because it's essentially a technology course. So, when you have those sorts of questions, you just need the expert to be on call kind of thing.

Before purchasing Dubsado I was having pretty extensive discussions via messenger with clients. Now that I have an established workflow in Dubsado I feel like my client communication is SO much more consistent and efficient. It also gets my sessions booked, complete with a signed contract and retainer fee paid in record time."

You can also duplicate it, customize it, change it, whatever. So it's so easy, cuz customizing is a big thing that kind of will slow me down. But since I could get through all that, then it's really easy to just go back in now that it's all done and set it up exactly how I want it."

"I loved all the step by steps and the videos. I loved how you could like click the button and it would import like the forms for you. So I didn't have to waste any time [creating them].

When I first got into the course and I started setting up the canned emails, she had the magic email in there. I had a few leads that had ghosted me. So I just sent them the magic email, and two of those ended up booking me for services. One of them was a two month old inquiry. (I apparently was the only one to check back in and follow up with her.) We set up an interview and then she booked me the next day. And that was for my highest package, which is $2,200 right now. And then I had another one that booked me for a $1,500 package.

Before purchasing Dubsado I was having pretty extensive discussions via messenger with clients and answering A LOT of questions in order to get the necessary information to send the contract. This was a time consuming process and it felt like it was a pain, not just for me but for my clients too. Now that I have an established workflow in Dubsado I feel like my client communication is SO much more consistent and efficient. It also gets my sessions booked, complete with a signed contract and retainer fee paid in record time."

"Ultimately, what helped me to get up and running with my Dubsado was a step-by-step set of instructions & a guided tutorial from Colie showing me the process of one complete proposal/workflow.

Are you ready?

You're happy with your client data being scattered among different platforms.

You're not willing to spend the time to complete the program.

You're resistant to automation and want to continue creating everything from scratch for each and every client.

You do not currently have a Dubsado account (trial or paid will work for this course) and are not willing to create one.

CRM Blueprint isn't a good fit for you if:

CRM Blueprint is perfect for you even if:

You're still in the beginning of building your business.

If you enroll in CRM Blueprint you will have a distinct advantage over other photographers when they started by having systems in place

You don't have a large client base.

One of the biggest myths I see is photographers don't think they need a CRM until they have a big client base. I would argue it's more important to set up your system now, so you have time to work on scaling your business.

You're not tech savvy.

This is literally what I am here for. Not only does CRM Blueprint have short videos to walk you through each step in an easy-to-follow manner, you have weekly access to me in group Q&A / implementation sessions.

You're a rockstar at this business thang.

This program is not just for the newbies. If you feel like there is room to grow and improve your current systems, let's do this!

You've never used a CRM before.

The CRM Blueprint shows you how to get started in Dubsado from the 1st step of creating an account. As long as you are ready to use a CRM this is the program for you.

You do not currently have a Dubsado account (trial or paid will work for this course) and are not willing to create one.

Still undecided?

I am all about adding personality into your emails so they sound like YOU, that is more important than the client knowing it was sent automatically. There can be great balance between writing reusable templates and making them personal!

Is it really possible to automate emails and still sound personal?

3

Absolutely. Good processes and systems are the backbone of any photography business, no matter how many clients you service. Spend the time in your business doing tasks that make you happy!

I'm not full-time in my business, will these systems still help me?

2

Yes. Bare minimum this course is going to give you proven systems to up-level your client experience and make you feel like more of a professional in your own business. It is also very likely you will fall back in love with your business because you get to focus on what brings you joy!

Is this course really worth the pricetag?

1

The shit you really want to know...

your questions answered

While you could likely take the strategies + done-for-you templates and apply them in any CRM, this is an implementation program. All the step-by-step videos show you how to setup your Dubsado account from scratch, or audit your current Dubsado setup to make it more efficient.  

I USE ANOTHER CRM, CAN I STILL TAKE THE CRM BLUEPRINT AND APPLY IT TO MY BUSINESS?

6

My goal isn't for you to finish this course and implement every single feature in Dubsado just because I say so. I really want you to use the templates and processes I teach to reclaim time from your business. How much and how fast you implement is totally up to you!

DO I NEED TO COMPLETE EVERY LESSON IN THIS COURSE TO GET VALUE FROM THE MATERIALS?

5

The entire process is HIGHLY customizable. Each form allows for you to add your own images and copy to make it feel like a part of YOUR business. You will decide what emails/forms to send, the timelines, and what you feel comfortable automating. I am here to guide and advise!

HOW CUSTOMIZABLE ARE THE TEMPLATES AND WORKFLOWS IN THE COURSE?

Colie knows Dubsado like no other family photographer. She shares her knowledge in a clear, concise and very understandable way. Through her teaching I have added so much organization and simplified my processes immensely. If you need a CRM in your business (and you do), take Colie’s course so that your future self will thank you."

"Colie is THE reason that I chose Dubsado for my own photography business and I am so happy I did.

I do more than just give you my own system. I break down what have created over the last *almost* decade so that you know where to start. But after you have implemented the base system in your Dubsado, you can totally customize the system to work for your business.  This will not feel like you copied someone else's systems in your account, because they will be YOUR systems. And you don't have to do this alone, I am here to help!

So are you ready to eliminate hours of administrative tasks per client? Let me help you create a business that you love and allows you to have that work-life balance everyone raves about. 

If you just need someone to tell you what to do... then I am here for you!

Here’s The Bottom Line…

I need sustainable systems!
