Running a business requires so many moving parts.
- Tracking customer leads
- Customer relationship management (CRMs)
…and the list goes on and on.
Not only are these tasks cumbersome. But figuring out how to organize and manage all of these moving parts can be nothing less than overwhelming. And at times, downright confusing.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you had a one-stop shop for all of these tasks (plus more?)
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out my blog post about why Dubsado is the clear choice for many creative home professionals here.
Interior Designers in particular have loved implementing Dubsado for many reasons. I would be here for days talking about all of them. But I’ve pared them down to 5 big reasons interior designers love Dubsado;
1. Workflows are easily automated and specialized based on your clients’ e-design needs
As an interior designer, odds are that you cater to the needs of a variety of different clients. Maybe you offer design services for homes AND corporate businesses. Or perhaps you offer consulting services, re-design and shopping services. Wherever your expertise as a designer lies, I have no doubt that the packages and/or a la carte selections you offer, require very different workflow processes. These could easily become extremely labor intensive.
With Dubsado, you can automate individualized workflows for each service your business offers. Then you can easily organize the information you need, to ensure your team is all ‘on the same page.’
2. Information Guides and Proposals can be integrated
Let’s say you have a warm lead. Someone is potentially interested in working with your company. But they want some more information. With Dubsado, you can send over your information packet and include links for your potential client. Then, they can go ahead and book with you if they feel like your services will be a good fit.
This cuts out an entire step for your customer! They don’t have to then take time to email or call you. They can simply click a button and begin their onboarding process right then and there. And let’s be real…..anytime you can make the steps to working with you easier, your customers are going to be much more likely to book. Dubsado, also automatically alerts you that a customer has begun the onboarding process. So you are aware to be on the lookout for questionnaires they may be sending in. Or, if you own a larger design company you can get your new client connected with whomever it is, that will be handling their design experience.
3. Forms, Questionnaires, Canned email etc. can easily be branded
As designers it’s vital that even your clients’ interactions with your business online are beautifully branded and visually appealing. Although they may not consciously be aware of it; Customers who interact with an aesthetically pleasing website and onboarding templates have peace of mind that they are trusting their design needs to someone who pays attention to details.
You wouldn’t hire an interior designer whose office space was dull and boring. So, your online leads are not going to hire an interior designer whose online presence is blase. Customers who are coming to you for design, want their onboarding and information gathering experience to be beautiful as well! Whatever design software you use to brand your content can easily be downloaded onto your computer and then uploaded to Dubsado to create a visually appealing, online experience for your potential clients.
4. Dubsado was created by creative entrepreneurs FOR creative entrepreneurs
One of the reasons interior designers in particular can easily implement the offerings within Dubsado is that it was created by Becca and Jake Berg. They needed to be able to automate and organize their business systems for Becca’s photography business.
The creators intimately understand the need for specialized workflows for creative entrepreneurs. They needed an all-in-one platform that includes invoicing, canned emails, questionnaires, to-do lists, +more. Dubsado was specifically created to replace the jobs of 15+ people. (Think of all the time and money you’re saving with an app that costs you $35/month!)
5. Dubsado is SO easy
It may take some time to talk and think through what your client journey will look like. But once you have clarity and the initial setup of Dubsado is taken care of, Dubsado is very intuitive. It can be scary to try something new. But think about how far technology has come just in your lifetime.
I’d be willing to bet that most of you have gone from not even owning a cell phone to practically RUNNING a business through the apps on your cell phone! And just like there was a bit of a learning curve in that instance; There will be a bit of a learning curve when you switch to Dubsado. But I PROMISE the learning curve will be worth it. Just think of the time you’ll save with automations for invoicing, gathering important information, and organizing your client files for easy access.
