New Orders Come In to Writely as a New Ticket
Writely integrates with most shopping carts and creates tickets to track your projects automatically.
Use Pre-Written Emails to Move the Ticket forward
Your next step is probably sending an intake form of some kind. Use a pre-written email or “Macro” to send it to the client. That ticket will now automatically remind the client to return that form to you every three, seven and 14 days so that you don’t have to worry about it any more.
Keep All Communications in One Place
Anytime you get a reply from your client, the Ticket for their project will be automatically updated (including attachments). Whenever you want to get up to speed on a project, or even delegate it, all files and communications will be in one place.
As the owner of a busy career and outplacement practice in the Washington D.C. area, I sought out Writely because I was looking for a way to automate much of my process, minimize delays, and eliminate missed deadlines. I like that Writely was designed by a writer; it was easy to explain my process because they just get it!
With a team of 12, and up to 40 retail and outplacement projects going at one time, we needed a way to manage simultaneous projects, and easily see where they all were in the process. This is Writely’s secret sauce. It allows you to hit “Inbox” and see which prospects are in your New Inquiry folder (folks who have reached out to you who have not yet become a client) or where clients are in the process (Waiting on Intake Form, draft sent, project closed, etc.) and more. This “at-a-glance” feature is extremely valuable in identifying bottlenecks in my process, or in anticipating overwhelm with my writers!
Writely can send emails to my writers informing them that their draft is delayed (which hopefully, it won’t be any longer!) and it can remind the clients to complete their intake form, a very handy way to not have folks returning years later to complete their resume, and more. In addition, I can see that this will be a very good tool down the road when I sell my business, as it will allow the new owner to rapidly get up to speed on our process!Laura Labovich, WBENC
As a solopreneur, I am certain that Writely is THE tool to expand my practice or take it to the next level. It is the only case management and analytics tool on the market written for writers and coaches by someone who knows our industry inside and out. Working with Joshua and Alex has been a pleasure – their customer service is second to none.Virginia Franco, NCRW, CPRW
I have recently had the opportunity to use the Writely program. As a Career Readiness Coordinator, it makes every part of my job concerning the clients and contractors so much easier, and alerts me to when projects or getting behind. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is a resume writer.Sheila Murray
As a small business owner, I found that it was a constant struggle to stay organized and ensure timely follow up for my clients. I would find that I would give my clients that selected resume writing Services a deadline but would rush to finish the product to meet that arbitrary deadline. After viewing the demo of Writely, I immediately realized I found a resource that could solve all of my problems!
Writely allows me to categorize the service for each client, allows pre-loaded templates for communication, and breaks down each step of the resume writing process. I definitely feel more organized and I am actually tracking my clientele in a central location. The tool is amazing but a big bonus is the personal assistance of Joshua and team! I’m excited that the tool can grow with my organization and meet all of my needs!Jada Willis, Forbes Coaches Council | Board of Directors, The NRWA
If it’s just you and an admin, you may be working 15-hour days and keeping track of your deliverables on a whiteboard or printed folders on your desk.
However, you could be writing more resumes and making more money while working fewer hours, just by implementing the Writely workflow process.
Imagine not working on weekends anymore and taking more vacations! We can help.
Small teams are great to help you scale your business. Hiring a few contractors can take a lot of pressure off of you. However, when many business owners move from actually doing the writing to managing a small team of contractors, they find this skill not only new, but also very stressful.
If you want to grow your team while giving yourself more time for marketing, Writely can help. And if knowing exactly what’s being done in your business gives you peace-of-mind, well, then it’s a no-brainer. Tell me, does your CRM, Task tool or Project Management tool offer that?
Every late order or client you’ve had to turn down is lost revenue. With teams of six or more, there are so many moving parts that most project management tools will breakdown into chaos. Even if you string together various systems, the chance of things breaking is very high.
Your business is a serious enterprise, and you should be using enterprise class tools to keep things operating smoothly. Writely not only gives you instant transparency into your deliverables and staff, it manages all of your client interactions to ensure quality and quickly resolve any disputes. And Writely automates many of the tasks your admin has been forced to do, just because of the inefficiencies that come with stringing together tools not designed for your business.
If you have three, four or even five different workflows or a team of six or more, you need a tool flexible enough to adjust.
