Things like accounting, marketing, networking, office layout, etc.
Here's a few things I'm curious about right off the bat:
1. What kind of company does everyone here exist under? How many are sole proprietors, and how many LLCs?
2. For those of you that market actively through Facebook, how do you use page insights to your advantage?
3. I need a good office chair for the hours spent culling and processing. Any suggestions?
4. Does anyone use a customer relationship manager application, or do you manage your client base through an address book or Outlook?
I work under my company, jimmy hickey photography llc
I don't really use the insights too often, just try to create interesting content and be involved, however I do use fb as my main piece of intermarketing
Eh whatever is comfortable!
Just have a little exel style file with their names and info
Feel free to send more questions my way, i will make a video if there is e ough good questions.
