giveaway day from The Easy Accounting Solution for the Photographer


It's giveaway day from The Easy Accounting Solution for the Photographer. We have found accounting to be the number one weakness in most photographers we talk to. The giveaway today is the perfect solution for those of us who lack the accounting knowledge.


The Easy Accounting Solution for the Photographer is an easy-to-use Excel spreadsheet designed specifically for photographers.  There is no prior bookkeeping or Excel knowledge required.  The Easy Accounting Solution for the Photographer includes the Excel spreadsheet as well as a detailed Word document explaining how to use the spreadsheet, as well as what kind of information should be tracked, and how to categorize all the information.


The Easy Accounting Solution for the Photographer allows photographers to:




-Manage their customer database


-Keep track of their jobs


-Produce invoices


-Track which products are selling the most/least


-Track income, expenses, assets and liabilities



There are also tabs for:


-A detailed checkbook


-Tracking major tax deductions, and


-One that lets photographers know how their business is doing overall on a


month-to-month basis (Income Statement)


To Enter:


Leave us a comment and tell us why you’d love to win a copy of The Easy Accounting Solution for Photographers.
