Whether you’re a business owner, a creative, or someone in the wedding photography industry, I want to share this app with you – because I KNOW you can benefit from it!
I’m in no way affiliated with Voxer, but I LOVE this app so much that I wanted to create a YouTube video about why I find it incredibly beneficial for groups. That’s how I use it currently – to communicate with a mastermind of creative professionals, and to communicate with other groups of wedding photographers. 📸
If you’re looking for an app to help you easily connect with a few people at a time, Voxer is it! ←I should also add that I am in no way affiliated with this company nor do I make a profit from sharing. I just love it and want to let others know how useful it is!!
Although you can use a paid version of the app, you can also use it completely free. The biggest difference is the paid version will allow you to recall messages if you make a mistake or the message goes on too long.
Read on for why I LOVE Voxer and how I use it in my business!
The way I describe Voxer is as if iMessage and a walkie-talkie had a baby. It’s a walkie-talkie app that allows you to send audio messages, but you can still text the users like it’s text messaging.
You might be wondering why you should move over to Voxer, since you can do this same thing in iMessage. Trust me, I thought the same thing – but there are SO many benefits.
Because the groups I’m in on Voxer are usually bigger than a couple of people, I might open up the app and see 12 audio messages waiting for me in the group. That might seem overwhelming – but the way Voxer plays them back is really cool.
If those audio messages are from different people, Voxer will play the messages continuously. Say there was a topic of conversation and people were volleying back and forth on audio. I can press play on the first message, and Voxer will go back and forth to every single member as they were speaking in the group, and I don’t have to touch my phone.
In fact, I can sit my phone down and work, and it plays it like a podcast. It is the COOLEST thing! Then, when all the messages have played, I can tap to talk and contribute to the conversation. 🗣️
When you’re talking, it lights up green, and when people are listening, you can see they’re listening… and they can give real-time text replies as they’re listening! It’s almost like we’re on the phone. It’s just so neat!
If someone is leaving a long message – say, 8 to 10 minutes long – you can swipe up on the app, and it won’t stop the audio. When they’re talking, you can still hear them and do other things on your phone.
If you’ve ever used the audio files on iMessage, you know that you cannot close out the iMessage app without closing out of the audio file. If a call comes through, you have to start over from the beginning. That’s pretty frustrating. 😒
Finally, I really like to use Voxer for myself. I have a thread open to myself only, and I take audio notes inside of Voxer if I have a thought or idea I need to record. Then, I can go back and listen to it after the fact. It’s almost like an audio diary!
Voxer has been amazing and SO much faster for collaborations and conversations. Now that I’m a mom, I feel like time has really become slim. I have to be much more efficient with things, but I still want to enjoy these beautiful conversations happening with groups, masterminds, photographers, and other people in the industry. I hope you check this app out, especially if you’re a photographer looking to level up in your business!
If the next thing you need to collaborate on with a team is a wedding day timeline, you can’t forget the shot list. Snag my list of the best go-to poses for the wedding day!
