Managing leads in a studio can be difficult: multiple clients to track, responses to send, and information flying everywhere! Winning a wedding or portrait client’s business is a big deal – so what’s the best way to get them to sign on the (electronic) dotted-line? First you have to get their attention, and keep it!

I’ve heard multiple times from brides that a quick response is greatly appreciated, and the smartest sales tool out there is the art of the follow-up! How can you get both?

ShootQ Lead Workflows help you easily manage your leads, respond quickly with the click of a button, and maintain communication with your promising inquiries.

ShootQ has the capability of managing your leads in a simple lead “bucket” system. I always encourage my ShootQ clients to use the categories that have been set up for them as much as possible. It can be easy to forget who is who, so using the Lead Tracking system, color coding them, applying follow up timing, and attaching automatic emails can truly help to save time and confusion.

The Lead Tracking system is custom set up, and you can choose when you’d like to respond to leads, how often you follow up, and what information you send to them. Additionally, each lead shows on your Task list when it’s time to check in, and sending the next email is as simple as a drop-down menu and click of a button!

Using the ShootQ Lead Tracking Workflows has saved me, and my ShootQ clients, countless hours of emails, searching through inboxes, and the potential of losing clients because they’re simply forgotten.
