What Your Inbox Done Assistant Can Do For You

 

Your dedicated assistant(s) can filter and reply to emails, schedule your calendar, handle all customer support and social media messages, create templates to automate your communication flow and get you down to Inbox Zero every day by replying to all your messages.

But that's only the beginning.

To help show you the scope of how we can help, we've created this menu of services to highlight the different ways we serve our current clients including executive and admin duties — all of which we can do for you!

 

Respond To All Emails (Inbox Management)

  • Respond for you five days a week, checking in to clear your inboxes multiple times per day
  • We start by writing drafts, so you can always review what we write before we send anything
  • We study your past responses in your inbox to gather information/context and replicate your writing style (formal vs. informal, lengthy vs. concise)
  • We tailor the level and extent of our communication depending on how involved you choose to be
  • We go through hundreds of emails (and social media messages) to look for patterns and create a database of your replies, centered on the most commonly asked questions and comments
  • We adopt your voice and personality as our own so that we can be your extension and representative for your clients/customers/coworkers
  • We filter all inquiries you receive (guest posts, link exchanges, joint ventures, contributions to your blog) and either accept or decline politely, based on your parameters, allowing you to focus on current projects while keeping the door open in case you change your mind
  • You will never need to check your inbox again (if you don’t want to)

 

Schedule Everything (Calendar Management) 

  • First we determine your scheduling parameters so we know when to RSVP yes or no; do you not want any meeting during your lunch hour? All calls before noon? Nothing on Fridays? We’ll design your dream schedule
  • We handle invitations to meetings, demos, hangouts, coaching calls, interviews and follow up personally with each invite if needed
  • We invite your customers/clients/team members into your calendar by sending them personalized requests
  • We add all necessary details into your calendar event so all you have to do is show up when your calendar says
  • We can confirm all important meetings right before they start and update you if anything needs to be rescheduled at the last minute (or reach out to the attendee if you can’t make the call)
  • If you travel a lot, we’ll make sure your time zone and your guest’s time zone line up for easy scheduling
  • We can even book your tickets/hotel rooms if given clear parameters and budgets
  • We make sure your confirmation/ticket numbers easy to access for a seamless check-in

 

Customer Support (Help Desk Management)

  • We can manage hundreds to even thousands of support tickets each day, ensuring current customers and potential customers receive timely responses
  • When a customer requests a refund/cancellation via a support ticket, we determine why they want to cancel, responding to their unique rejection points to keep them happy and reduce your refunds/cancellations
  • We identify customer goals and can tailor special offers based on their reply, designed to reduce churn
  • We constantly gather FAQs so you have a growing bank of answers to pull from for commonly asked questions
  • Our team can expand or contract based on your needs, adding additional Inbox Managers during rush periods in your business (holiday shopping for example)
  • We custom onboard all enterprise clients, so we can adapt to become part of your culture and learn what makes your products, services and company unique
  • All enterprise level clients receive a team manager to maintain quality and so you have one point of contact for your customer support department  

 

Chase Up Overdue Payments/Reduce Churn

  • If there is an issue with a customer or contractor payment (credit card is declined/expired), we resolve the issue and rerun the payment
  • We customize a series of personalized emails sent every few days to remind that payment is due, helping the customer catch any missed payments, thus prolonging their subscription
  • Repeated email reminders often recover payment in a non-threatening way, while keeping them a customer, encouraging them to make contact so we can work out a solution
  • If no payment is made, we let them know we must regretfully close their account and offer them a friendly offer to rejoin us at any time in the future, keeping the relationship open

 

Follow Up With Leads

  • New customers often need several follow-ups before ever purchasing a service or product. We create a follow-up sequence for your leads/potential clients with very personalized messages sent at regular intervals
  • Lead generation! We can do any amount of proactive research for you if given clear parameters (Looking for podcast guests? We’ll reach out to guests in your industry. Are your clients real estate agents? We’ll Google agents in specific regions and send them personalized emails explaining what you do).
  • We don’t only react like most virtual assistant agencies; we are constantly on the lookout for ways to grow your business so that InboxDone has the potential to pay for itself (or even make you money)
  • We reply to any questions and address any objections, opening a dialogue that may lead to a sale

 

Refunds & Cancellations

  • When a customer requests a refund/cancellation, we ask for feedback and determine why they want to cancel, boosting retention
  • We identify their goals and tailor a special offer based on their reply, designed to save that customer, focusing on their unique rejection points to keep them happy and reduce your refunds/cancellations
