Why did I choose Dubsado for my business?

I like to keep things organized in one place and fortunately, Dubsado has everything I need to keep my business running smoothly and efficiently. My client acquisition and onboarding has never been smoother! It replaced a lot of apps I use before such as HelloSign, Calendly, Aidaform, and Wave, saving me time and money.

How do I use Dubsado to manage my business? 

  • A questionnaire that qualifies leads who want to book a call with me is embedded in my website
  • Along with the questionnaire is a scheduler where potential clients can book an appointment with me (calendar is synced with my google calendar so Dubsado automatically blocks time slots that are already taken)
  • Dubsado sends me an email notification when someone books a call and creates a to-do task for me to review the questionnaire
  • My potential client receives an email notification to confirm the appointment and another email reminder few minutes before our call
  • I then send a custom proposal to my potential client after our call and once the proposal is approved, I send over a contract that allows them to e-sign with a legally binding digital signature
  • Once the contract is signed, I send over an invoice with payment details and schedule. You can accept payments via Stripe, Paypal, or Square. Unfortunate for me, since I am from the Philippines and Paypal fees are ridiculously high, I prefer using Transferwise so I just add an information on where and how they can settle the payment
  • Once the payment is settled, Dubsado sends an email with scheduler where my client can book an appointment for our Strategy call
  • An automated email reminder gets sent out when the payment is due and overdue
  • An automated feedback form to ask for testimonial gets sent out 45 and 90 days after project start date

    Hi! Thanks for this – very helpful. I am planning to do the same thing.

    May I ask how do you comply with the BIR requirements in terms of bookkeeping since you’re sending digital invoices? Did you apply for CAS?

    Thank you so much!

      Thanks, Mika! We hired an accountancy firm to assist us with BIR requirements.

Plan your launch. Don’t wing it.

Have you ever started a launch project and half-way through it, you find yourself asking “Where was I going with this!?” or “Where’s the instruction manual to these things!?”
