As a real estate photographer, you can end up sending a lot of repeat emails: messages where the receipt is different but the content is VERY similar. Things like:
If you use Gmail, there is a quick and easy way to make sending these repeat messages a breeze: canned responses. Canned Responses lets you save a message template, and reuse it over and over in the future.
(Note: if you’re not using Gmail, there is probably a similar add-on available for your email client.)
Here’s how to set it up and get started using it to make running your real estate photography business more efficient.

This couldn’t be much simpler. After you’ve opened a new message, click the small triangle in the lower right, and in Canned responses select your message. Boom! All you have to do now is change your variables, add a personal note if you want, and click send.
As a real estate photographer, finding small ways to save time and be more efficient can make all the difference. Features like canned responses are a great way to level up your email game.
