Ask Siri to help you make all of the calls you planned? Or ask Siri to send out of series of customized Texts?
Q: What is a 'Nurture List'?
A: Not every lead is a hot lead. You quickly recognize which leads are urgent and which ones are 'slower burns'. These leads require you to stay in touch and cultivate the lead before they become a real opportunity. While active leads require urgent follow up to move them thru the process, these leads require you to put a plan in place where you stay in touch with them on a periodic basis. For example, you can decide to engage your 'Nurture List' 30 times a year. Leadster will manage that for you.
Q: What are Templates and how do I use them?
A: An important part of lead management is staying on top of communication. We offer templates to make it easier to draft emails and texts especially if you know you tend to reuse the same verbiage during different stages of the lead cycle. Example: You often meet leads as a part of your networking. Today, you just met Johnnie Appleseed at a personal gathering and you discussed how he might be in the market in a few months. You scanned his business card right into Leadster and it automatically created a lead for you. Then you select his lead and send him a “Great to meet you today.” text from the template. It has all the important information that you want him to see.
Q: Why can’t I just send him/her a text?
A: Of course, you can but by scanning his card, Leadster entered his contact info into your contacts, created a lead, logged that initial activity, and set your next step as sending him a text. Let’s say you met 5 other people with similar discussions. Your personal assistant just took care of the harder stuff. All you have to do is work thru your HotList which is repeating pretty much the same workflow. Making your life easier! And you won’t drop the ball on any of them.
Q: My data is not saving correctly.
A: Please check the following: Are you logged into your iCloud account. (hint: check your settings) Do you have iCloud Drive on? If both of those are on then check your memory. The lead data is stored in your personal iCloud (not ours). We do not have access. That is to protect you. However, if you are maxed out on available memory then you will encounter significant performance issues. Once that is set your leads will appear in all of your apple mobile devices that are logged into that same account.
