Dubsado courses, setup, workflows, & training along with tips for running your service-based business efficiently.

Proper client management is the key to making (and keeping) happy clients.


my cRM System USED TO look like this:

  1. Gather leads from a Squarespace form.
  2. Send response from Gmail attached with a brochure saved on hard drive.
  3. Manually add leads to email marketing software.
  4. Keep track of appointments on Google Calendar.
  5. Track leads using an Excel spreadsheet or Streak CRM.
  6. Create contracts in Google Docs.
  7. Sign contracts with HelloSign.
  8. Send invoices through Freshbooks.
  9. Send onboarding/offboarding questionnaires through Typeform.

I paid 2.9% + 30 cents to my payment processors, Paypal and Stripe AND ANOTHER 2.9% + 30 cents to my invoicing system, even though I paid a monthly fee for their service. It cost me around 6% of my earnings just to get paid.

That's $3000 for $50,000 of revenue. $6000 for $100,000 of revenue. Yikes!


The tools were great, but there were so many of them.

Each part of my system was in a different place.

It was manual, time-consuming, and difficult to keep track of more than one client at a time (even that wasn't very easy).


I'm guessing your current client management system looks similar.


Wouldn't it be nice if there was an all-in-one CRM software?

Guess what? There is.


But that's not all: There's one that doesn't charge payment processing fees!

For example, a graphic designer would have one workflow for branding/logos and a different one for web design. That's because the process of creating a brand identity is different from creating a web design.
