The COVID-19 crisis continues to impact us all on a global scale. While some communities are slowly easing restrictions, others continue a firm shelter-in-place order as they continue controlling the situation.
We understand the impacts and challenges that our friends in the music industry, including recording studios, are facing. While many studios have temporarily closed their doors, others are continuing remote sessions of one sort or another. It’s certainly a difficult time for recording studios, but it can also be an opportunity to work on and strengthen your business as you prepare for restrictions to be lifted in your own community. You don’t have to sit back and wait it out!
The following are 3 distinct ways that Sonido Software can help your recording studio prepare to exit the COVID-19 crisis as a stronger business.
You may not be working new projects today, but that doesn’t mean you should sit quietly and wait out the crisis.
Take this time to renew conversations with old contacts, continue outreach with previous clients, and search for new opportunities for your business.
Managing your leads in Sonido Software is easy. From a single screen, you can view a centralized list of all active leads that you are tracking or working. Each of these are a unique opportunity that may become a new project in the future. By managing your leads effectively, you decrease the risk forgetting to follow up or losing out on a potential revenue opportunity.
As you work leads through your pipeline within Sonido, you can effortlessly track key contact and future project details, enter conversation notes, view a full conversation history, create to dos with automated reminders, and more.
With Sonido Software, your lead management becomes more simplified and effective. While you may not be immediately converting these leads to new projects due to today’s lockdown challenges, you will be ready to move them forward more confidently when your studio is open again.
Keeping track of all your studio contacts can be a daunting task. You may regularly work with bands and band members, managers, label contacts, producers, engineers, and session musicians, to community partners, vendors, suppliers, or any number of other contacts that are in some way tied to your business.
Some studios store all contacts within their phone or email contact list, some may use some form of a generic CRM, and others may not keep track of their contacts at all. Without keeping your contacts organized and updated you are likely missing out on opportunities to build relationships, find new leads, and potential revenue streams.
Sonido Software helps keep all your contacts organized within a single system. You can efficiently store your contacts within organized lists, access their contact information, conversation history, and more with ease. And what’s more, all your contacts are directly integrated within your larger business management system, giving you flexibility in scheduling, sending financials, such as quote, invoices and receiving payments, connecting your contacts to recording projects, and more.
Not to mention, all your data within the platform is mobile-friendly, and accessible anytime, anywhere, from any device.
With Sonido, you now have one single platform to manage everyone you work with – wherever you go. That’s powerful.
Whether you have active or on-hold projects today, you can still pull together project details for more effective and streamlined project management.
With Sonido, you can manage a list of active projects, along with all necessary project details. This includes populating project details for quick recall, contact communication, entering and viewing a history of session notes, creating project tasks with automated reminders, reviewing booking history or storing all project files such as scratch tracks, reference tracks, mixes, and session files. Additionally, you can securely send mixes or masters for client review through an intuitive, streamlined file review portal and gather all feedback in one place. At the end of the project, you can easily deliver files to your clients for mastering or distribution.
Having all these tools within a single platform saves you time, can save you money, and helps you to avoid the frustration of managing independent app integrations. We can help you focus on your business and the music without all the other distractions.
These are just a few examples of how Sonido can help your studio come out of the COVID-19 crisis as a stronger, more organized studio business that can run more efficiently than ever before.
