How Far Will You Go?

How far will you go to gain, keep, impress a client? This question seems to come up on a regular basis, for one reason or another. It is a question that faces me as I write this blog post. There isn't a right or wrong answer for how far anyone should be willing to go for clients. Every situation comes with its own issues and details. How much business does this client give me, are they a headache to deal with, do they have a large influence? All of these factors and more come to play when…

TourBuzz Service Update: Pump Down the Volume! Pump Down the Volume!

Todays' release brings a number of simple but often requested improvements to the TourBuzz Player's handling of Audio.

The good news is that we've developed a new TourBuzz Magic DNS Service that makes it extremely easy to get the setup right. All you have to do to use the new feature is to set…

Your Payment Is Past Due

As I stated in an earlier post, I hate doing invoicing. It is probably the thing about owning a business I like the least. What makes invoicing even worse, is when I have to contact customers about late payments. Not only does this take time, but it can cost money. 

Like most business to business transactions, I give a 30 day window to fulfill payment for each shoot. For that vast majority of my clients, it works out well and payment is sent quickly. However, I always seem to have a…
