How I Gained 12 Hours a Week Back with 3 Simple Tools
I am obsessed about 1 system in my business. One system that legit is my bread and butter and my favorite process to talk about.
That’s my Potential Client + Client Onboarding Process.
I’m going to show what it looks like in my business then share my favorite ways to use these 3 simple tools to gain 12 hours back a week (no joke).
- A potential client comes waltzing along and wants to get on a consultation call with me
- They either email into my team or click to find a time on my schedule (inside of Acuity)
- They find a time
- They fill out my Qualifying Questionnaire
- They get a confirmation email that their appointment is set and their Zoom link is created
- They get an email 24 hours before with the Zoom link
- They get an email 1 hour before with the Zoom link
- We get on a call!
And guess what – that’s all automated and all happens without my doing a single thing.
Here’s my Client Onboarding Process broken down (using Stripe & Dubsado) –
- I take my client information and input their credit card information into Stripe
- I input my client information into Dubsado (address, email, etc…)
- I start my Dubsado workflow which begins with getting the contract signed
- After their contract is signed, an automated email gets sent for them to fill out a questionnaire
- Once the questionnaire gets filled out, Chelsea (my Project Manager) gets notified about scheduling our client call.
- Chelsea places my call on my calendar and I show up!
Alright, let’s review these 3 simple tools.
Acuity (free or $10/month) – a calendar scheduling tool so people can can decide what day and time works for them.
My favorite things about Acuity:
- Ability to do an intake form before anyone is able to solidify a time on my calendar
- Automatically adds the intake form answers for each client into my Gmail event
Zoom (free or $19/month) – a video conferencing tool so you can see your potential clients face to face.
My favorite things about Zoom –
- Ability to record automatically onto the cloud (not taking up space on your computer)
- That is connects with Acuity!!
Dubsado ($25/month) – a client management software so you can keep track of all your client information in one place.
My favorite things about Dubsado –
- The ability to create automated workflows
- Their INCREDIBLE customer service (I’ve gotten 2 free starbucks and constant updates to the software)
There are plenty of other choices when it comes to each of these, but these are MY favorite. Sometimes I suggest them to my clients depending on their needs. However, it’s important I take their particular concerns and preferences into consideration.
