Who are you, and what do you love to do?
Heya! My name is Ryan! I love playing video games, taking trips with friends and visiting new places. I also enjoy spending time with my new, in-a-near-constant-state-of-fear rescue dog named Tilly.
How did you get here? What experiences have led you to this point in your life?
I graduated from Falmouth University in 2020 with a degree in Games Development, with a focus on Game Design. After graduating, I did some freelance work for small businesses, getting them setup with a basic website and online presence. This definitely helped me identify what a lot of small businesses were missing, and how much difference having a smooth customer journey online could make.
When did you start working with BoothBook, and what do you do to help push the business forward?
I started here at BoothBook in September of 2021, and my role here is a Sales Advisor. I’m responsible for finding and contacting businesses that could benefit from BoothBook, and arranging for them to have a phone call to learn more about what we provide, and how we can help them and their business.
When was the first time you used a photobooth? Why did you use it? Who were you with? What was the experience like?
The first time I remember using a photobooth was as a kid, trying to take a passport photo before a holiday with my family to Spain. I had a great time, my mum maybe not so much, putting coin after coin into the machine trying to get me to keep a straight face.
What is the coolest / most fun / most amazing photobooth experience you have seen? Why did you like it so much?
I think the photo booth at my brother's wedding was great, it had the usual getup of props and funny hats, but everyone had a great time and it was at such a special event I hold fond memories of it.
What is a particular skill that you have that you think would help small business owners improve their lives?
I think my biggest skill in this regard is putting myself in the shoes of the customer or client. It’s easy to get caught up in your own genius when creating a website, or marketing for your business and it becomes easy to forget that the customer's thought process may be different. Being able to think in the same way as the people you’re trying to appeal to is a major element of creating more business, and something which sometimes gets overlooked.
Which BoothBook feature do you think is most likely to dramatically improve someone’s business?
The automation on BoothBook is really the biggest factor to me. Being able to save so much time (and therefore money) on admin work is beyond helpful. Not only does it help with the efficiency of your business, but it reallocates your time working into the more enjoyable parts of the job. The free time you generate from BoothBook that you don’t use for other work? The world's your oyster!
Which BoothBook feature do you think is the coolest / most fun / most impressive?
I think the way that BoothBook keeps your brand tight-knit is the coolest part. The customer journey isn’t interrupted by BoothBook, everything remains true to your company name, your logos and the emails come from your mailbox. I just think that’s neat and helps to keep you on brand. Aside from that, I think the SEO Optimization from rep links, and the SEO guide are great. Not only is BoothBook automating such a large workload, but it can be utilised to grow your company at the same time.
Why should people use BoothBook in their business?
It’s built for you, by people who have already been through the trials of doing it manually. It makes running the business easier, it helps your business grow, and ultimately can take your passion project and turn it into a profitable career that leaves you with more free time than when it was just starting up.
