Outstanding Product

2018-08-12

Makes it so easy for all of our team to log into the same program and know what is happening daily, monthly, and annually at our venue.

Pros

Contracts, inquiries, follow up emails, reminders, reservations of space/appointments/events, built in calendar, client management, invoices...

Cons

Only con I can think to put is that when events go past 12:00am midnight, there isn't a time option for that (will show up on two different calendar days).

Thanks so much for the review Steph! We have an integration with Zapier and an API and are able to hook into anything else that has an open API or Zapier integration. Also we just released our advanced reporting last month. Im looking forward to showing you.

Event Temple has been a fantastic investment for my business! A must have tool for your business.

2017-07-28

CRM usage, revenue increase, better productivity, better organization, stats feature.

Pros

The automation feature allows me to view where I stand in my pipeline and reach out by phone or text to leads who have not open any of the emails sent.

Cons

As far as cons, I would have said phone number search feature, but they just added it about a month or two ago.

Hey Alex! Thanks for the review my friend!!!
I love your Event Temple tutorial videos you have posted on Facebook, it means a lot to us you are spreading the word about our product and company. We have worked really hard on it and it's always nice to see not only a 5 star review but someone willing to publicly spread the word about us and put out tutorial videos to the community. Thanks again!

They've lived up to every promise and made the transition as easy as possible.

Event Temple at Cedar Court Hotels

2019-08-22

Has made data and reporting much simpler for our hotels.

Pros

Event Temple has been accommodating, supportive, helpful, and inspiring.

2018-04-04

The flexibility to accommodate our guest's requests and customize our lead forms and lead management style.

Pros

Extremely flexible and customizable. There is so much freedom to build the program according to your venue's needs.

Cons

I use Apple for everything and their setup would be much easier to jump into if I were a Windows/PC person.

Hernan C.

No brainer, simple and cost effective alternative for ecommerce sales automation!

2017-07-28

Sales team is much more effective with the use of the tool directly impacting revenue.

Pros

Perhaps what we like most about this tool is the ease of use and easy integration into Gmail.

Cons

With that said the development and management team are constantly reaching out to users for potential tweaks, mods, or improvements.

Phill M.

I can now see all our leads, their status at a glance. Saves so much time. E-mail automation is fab.

2017-08-02

Time saving, easier tracking of incoming leads.

Pros

E-mail response automation. Filtering by lead status is also really easy.

Cons

Writing e-mails can be slightly 'laggy' sometimes, but it is over the internet, so not really the softwares fault.

Thanks for your review! I just checked my side and the emails appear to be instant, let's do a screenshare on your computer sometime and see if we can speed it up for you. Im pretty sure this is an internet thing, not an Event Temple thing but I'd like to triple check to make sure it's SUPER FAST for you.

Almost perfect

2017-08-07

Francisco G.

Great customization and easy implementation

2020-11-18

The only feature we're hoping to have is some kind of private dashboard for clients to view setup progress/milestones/pipeline stage.

Pros

Learning the interface and overall features didn't take long and after a bit of brainstorming I had our venue mostly fully configured within 2 weeks.

Cons

Lastly, a mobile-app would be wonderful - until then, it works just as well on tablet and only slightly different on mobile (must be landscape mode)

I have been very impressed with this service.

2017-08-10

Pros

I love the ease of this service and how it reaches brides almost immediately and automatically. I love the features of the pipe line and how I can organize leads and keep track of sales.

Cons

How to import leads and then just send one email to them instead of a series.

I went from the far side of the psychiatric ward to poster girl for an Efficiency campaign!

2017-07-31

Peace of Mind that my leads are not falling through the cracks. A n easy way to stay organized and on top of my communications with leads & clients.

Pros

Most appreciated: ease in which it integrates with the contact form on my website Visual information the pipline gives me.

Cons

I wish there were a way I could integrate Event Temple with my Wedding Wire storefront the way it automatically intergrates with my website contact form. That would be amazing.

Highly Recommend This Software

2019-10-23

We've been able to integrate our industry-specific needs with ease, and have challenged the customer representative team & Team with personalized requirements ~ all which have been met with enthusiasm and success, as well as fabulous hands-on customer support!!

Pros

We have been able to do some detailed tweaking to make the software more specific to the art industry and artist studio rentals... looking forward to using the Quickbooks integration for invoicing.

Cons

It does freeze sometimes when more than one of the team uses the platform at the same time...

EventTemple is more than I could have ever wished for! Our entire team is now fully organized .

2018-03-16

The automated responses and followup emails has not only saved us a ton of time but following up has generated enough bookings to pay for the software in only two months of usage.

Pros

The time EventTemple has saved myself and my team is tremendous - I'd say it has cut email time to about 1/4 of what it was previously and we are experiencing great customer satisfaction because we are able to respond quickly and more thoroughly.

Cons

The one thing that we would like is a calendar and way to schedule staff, although we think we have a work around by using the tasks feature.

Use the drip email system and tracking who has viewed my emails after wedding shows.

2017-07-31

I'm able to send drip emails and reminders and send out my blogs to prospects and I get a lot of open emails.

Pros

I like that I can use the calendar to get a quick snapshot of prospects for wedding shows.

Cons

Would like it if there was an automatic disclaimer on the bottom to opt out of the email.

Response from Event Temple


Hey Angela,

Thanks so much for the feedback.
There is no need for the opt-out button because it's not meant to be an email marketing system. It's supposed to feel personal so having an opt-out would defeat the purpose. Instead, if they reply the email will stop. We appreciate your feedback but I feel you are using the system in a way we didn't intend it to be used and that's why you want to see the opt out. If I am wrong with my assumption on this please let me know. It is not meant to be a replacement to mailchimp, aweber, etc. Instead it is just to make sending all of your personalized emails faster and easier. It wouldn't make sense to put an opt out on your personal emails. Let's hop on a call to chat about it more.

Event Temple has definitely helped us keep up with clients

2019-12-12

The ability to keep up to date on tasks, emails, contacts

Pros

The ability to create automated email sequences for a variety of needs.

Cons

Sometimes, navigating around is cumbersome. It doesn't allow you to move left or right, up or down unless you are at the bottom. For instance, if I want to scroll all the way to the right, I have to scroll all the way down to move the bar that then allows me to go to the right. Then I have to scroll back up.

Event Temple saves me so much time and extra work! I would be lost without it!

2017-07-28

This software allows me to collect data quickly and easily, manage leads long term and keep track of leads that are either lost or turned into bookings.

Pros

Not having to input the data myself saves time and reduces errors. The filters allow me to view just the data I need to see, helping with efficiency.

Cons

I wish I could start an automated sequence in the middle of the sequence without creating a new one with all the same steps. It's not a big deal but it does feel repetitive.

Game Changing Product for the Event Industry

2018-11-17

There is no other Event Industry-specific CRM platform out there that is as robust and responsive to customization as the team at Event Temple has been.

Pros

The CRM Automation and Workflow Automation has been a complete game changer for us as a business!

Cons

The Reporting is the only weak area currently on the entire platform, however, I know this is something that is already on Event Temple's radar and after seeing how they improved the overall system from other requests they received from clients I have no doubts this will be improved as well.
