GUEST BLOG POST BY ELIZABETH JOHNSTON & CAMERON MACBETH FROM DUBSADO
Know your process. Build your foundation.
It sounds like such a broad yet overwhelming statement. We hear from our customers all the time that they don’t know their process and ask if we have any templates. Or they will say that they want to copy exactly the way that leaders in their industry have mapped everything out. Does this sound like you?
We won’t even lie, it is easy to see something that is working for someone else, and want that too. But what works for them, might not work for you! There is no one size fits all solution.
So what exactly do we mean by, “your process?”
It is the strategic steps and actions that you take when providing a service to your client.
You may have an airtight system that you know like the back of your hand. For example, every client will be sent an invoice 2 days after the contract is signed. It runs like clockwork.
Or, you may be less rigid with how you run things and have to check a couple times to make sure the contract was sent, and did you ever send that invoice? … Siri, set a reminder to send invoice to VIP client!
When Dubsado was asked to do a workshop at Together Experience, we knew that diving into the idea of knowing and simplifying your process was going to be important. In so many words, workflow!
We are huge believers in getting all of the backend of your business sorted so you have more time for the things you enjoy. This is the reason you are running your own business. Whether that is because you love photography, design, coaching, or simply because you want more time to spend at home with your family. We want to get you back to what matters most. It might sound like a time consuming task, but it is totally worth investing some time now, to save time in the future.
We can’t wait to dig into your process and figure out what can be automated, what can be simplified, elevated, and maybe what can even be eliminated. Laying the foundation and knowing how you would like for things to work is crucial in making a flawless experience for your clients as well as creating time for you to focus on the things you love.
We can’t wait to see you and dive in!
