Client Processes: The Inquiry Email

Struggling with getting inquiries to book with you? Here are some of our tips!

Contact Management System

Before we dive into the how and why - I want to touch on why a contact management system or CRM is important. CRM’s house all your contacts (or clients) within its database. There are a bunch of options (some booking systems even have them) but basically it is essential to staying organized as a business owner. CRM’s give you one space to house all things client related. Their new client forms, procedure notes, booking history, email communications - use one! I love Hubspot for beginners, especially because they have a free plan!

Importance Of Templates

How many times have you responded to a potential client inquiry late at night and just typed a quick answer to their questions and left it at that? You’re missing a HUGE sales opportunity! Create really clear templates that have all the information and a CALL. TO.  ACTION. 

How To Respond

I could create a list of things to include in your client inquiry response, but let me give ya a template for a PMU inquiry instead!

Follow Ups

The most important action you can take after an inquiry is FOLLOW UP! Set reminders to circle back with the potential client with gentle reminders & check in’s. Don’t make them feel like they’re being sold to but touch base on how you can help them.
