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.

Shirleen Burnett

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.

Phill Makepeace

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

Drag and drop across the dashboard. E-mail integration with O365.

Cons

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

Hey Phill,

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.

Dena Bovey

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.

Josh Pinkston

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.

Angela Strecker

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.

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.

Hernan Cubillos

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.

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!

Susan L. Greig

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.

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.

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.

Jessica Aldridge

This is a great software!

2018-05-30

Pros

I like the task features and being able to maintain groups through the dashboard. Sending contracts, BEOs, and invoices are super easy.

Cons

The only thing I wasn't super happy about was that I had to create all my own documents. Most of the software companies we talked to created the BEO and contract formats for us. This took a lot of time and was stressful, I wish I had more help at the beginning.

Hi Jessica! Thanks so much for the review. We have created BEO and Contract templates now so moving forward, all future customers in our system will get these. We also now include help importing all of the existing documents, contacts, leads, etc as part of our setup process. I'll touch base with you personally on this too.

Mallory Nason

I would absolutely recommend this platform for anyone running an event space.

2018-04-13

Pros

The pipeline structure is intuitive, easy to navigate, and allows for all client data to be stored in a singular place.

Cons

I have put in a feature request to have some auto-fill tasks (much like the workflow feature that currently exists) and that is the only minor "issue" i have come across.

We own a destination wedding venue in the Smoky Mountains and have been using ET for about a year.

2017-08-03

Since we have been working with ET from their early days, most of the issues or features we wanted and suggested have been implemented.

Pros

Automations can be set up for all sorts of different clients, situations, etc. Contact forms from ET are used on our websites so the auto-responder sends an email to the contact within minutes.
