Asset Management: How to Create a Simple Backup System That Works
Creative Rising Episode 309
Asset management is something that can get very confusing very quickly, which is why most of us put this part of our business on the back burner for far too long.
But every time we photograph a wedding or session, we need to know exactly how we’re downloading and naming our files, how we’re backing them up so they’re secure, and where we’re storing them long term once the job is finished.
This part of our business isn’t sexy or fun, which is why I’m taking the guesswork out of this workflow. In this episode, I tell you exactly how you should be backing up and storing your images, covering your entire asset management workflow from download to archive.
Plus, I created a freebie that includes all of the shopping of products you need for this workflow (thankfully there’s very few!) and I’ve outlined the entire workflow plan (which is very simple!).
Listen to this episode and grab that freebie at the link below. It will feel so good to finally have a simple and clear backup system that actually works!
