Dubsado is a very powerful tool and can be a little intimidating to someone who has never used a CRM and does not understand how to use Dubsado to help manage their contacts.
If you’re looking for a tool to manage your clients. I’d like to share my idea of how to use Dubsado to manage everything for your clients from the time you receive a request for a wedding, family portrait, or senior portrait session.
Dubsado enables you to record phone calls, text messages, and notes requesting more information from the beginning to the delivery of the clients images and videos.
So, let’s get started.

Dubsado makes it very easy to create lead capture forms to collect all the information you need to help a potential client.
My favorite part of the form is being able to send specific emails in regard to form selection.
This enables you to tailor your emails with detailed information that will help the client from the first time they contact you.
How to automatically schedule appointments.
Dubsado’s recently launched a new feature enabling you to automatically schedule appointments.
You can embed the scheduler on your website via a page, post, or popup using Elementor free or pro version, and the default WordPress using Gutenberg block builder.
Appointments can be synced to your calendar (in my case I use Google) with all the information you need when you meet with the client.

When you’re using Dubsado, you’re able to eliminate the need for several different services for collecting payments, signing contracts, and sending the initial email for more information.
