Getting the job done
April is almost over, can you believe it? Yesterday I was thinking about all the jobs I did for my clients this week where I had to come up with new ways to work familiar systems:
- Setting up an appointment system for someone who never had an online calendar before.
- Creating a first-name-only check in sheet that allowed each attendee to check and correct their registration info without revealing it to anyone else (I know, thank God for comments).
- Creating Tave workflows and emails practically from scratch. And then figuring out the best way to train my client – who’d never used Tave – to implement it.
- Learning a new (to me) CRM system and formatting it to fit my client’s current templates.
Wedding professionals are always called on to do this
To use what they know and the experience they have, to figure out how to create things for their clients that they’ve never done before. It’s like giving a porcupine a bath – you know how a bath works. Now you just have to get this squirming live animal you’ve never dealt with before into it, without getting stabbed to death. You’ve never giving a porcupine a bath before, obviously. But given your experience of baths, you have a good understanding of what questions to ask to get the right skills and tools to get the job done.
