Frequently Asked Questions
We've answered a few questions here, but hit the chat button to connect with us if you've got more!
What is a "lead"?
Leads are prospective clients who are interested in hiring your company. Generally, they need more information about your services before they can make a booking, so it's essential that you communicate with them to discuss their needs and price point.
Someone becomes a lead when they fill out your lead form or when you add them as a new lead manually.
How does the "leads" process work?
It is unlikely that all your leads will turn into bookings. In fact, you'd be doing well if you ended up booking 1 in every 20 leads that you get. But that's a whole lot of follow-up emails for not much reward. And to make matters worse, many leads never even reply after your initial follow-up.
It's exhausting to deal with this mountain of work and still be ignored by 90% of your leads.
In BOS, you can ease your workload by automating the follow-up process so that leads who are serious about booking you become obvious, and you can just forget about the rest.
Why should I let BOS manage your lead follow-ups automatically?
Replying to leads quickly is critical for winning the deal. Back On Stage makes following up easy and painless with automatic follow-up emails. Easily customize your own automatic sequence of email messages that will be sent at intervals you choose, after a new lead is added.
We recommend that your follow-up emails include valuable details (like pricing, video links and descriptions of your services) so that your leads get the information they need to move forward with their booking.
NOTE: Once a lead replies to any one of your automated messages, the automatic follow-up sequence will be stopped. It's now up to you to communicate with the lead and convert them to a booking when things get serious.
When does a lead turn into a booking?
The sole purpose of the "Lead" stage in BOS is really just to get the conversation going. If a lead isn't willing to reply to any of your follow-up emails, it's fair to assume they're not that serious about booking you. So just move on and focus your time on leads who have replied.
When a lead replies and is interested in moving forward, that is the time to convert this lead to a booking. Once you convert the lead to a booking, you'll have many more tools at your disposal, like tasks management, invoice and contracting, booking of musicians and more.
How do I convert a lead to a booking?
Just open any lead from your main Leads page. Once open, click "Create Booking" to turn this lead into a booking.
By default, your new booking will have a status of "Negotiations" (also known as a 'Hold' or 'Tentative'). Now the booking will appear on your company's calendar and you can take the necessary steps to move it forward.
