I don’t know about you, but being a service-based business owner aka a solopreneur, I don’t have a ton of extra time on my hands. I do whatever it takes to refine my systems and processes to help me save time so that I don’t have to spend every single waking moment focusing on my business. Today I’m sharing 5 benefits of having a welcome packet as a service-based business owner.
5 Benefits of Having a Welcome Packet
What is a welcome packet?
A welcome packet is essentially a document that outlines your weekly hours, how your clients can communicate with you, and all of your contact information among other important information that will help ease them into working with you.
Simplifies Your Processes
A welcome packet helps simplify your processes by giving your new clients a look into how your business works so that they know how to get ahold of you and how everything is going to work from the get-go.
Directs your client to the next steps
When you have a welcome packet, your client will already be aware of how everything works so that will save the both of you time in the long run because you won’t have to hash out each and every detail over email as it will already be in the welcome packet.
Not only do I feel more professional by having a welcome packet for my clients to review after signing with me but I have also gotten comments from past and current clients thanking me for including a welcome packet because it made everything seem so organized.
