Saved Responses on The Bash

If you are looking for a way to reply faster to your leads on The Bash while maintaining a professional and personalized response, our saved response tool can help.

In this blog, learn everything you need to know about saved responses, including how to create and use them, how to personalize them, and tips for writing your first saved responses.

What Are Saved Responses?

Saved responses are pre-drafted templates that you can create and save within your Member Control Panel on The Bash. For example, you can create different saved responses depending on whether or not you're available for the event, the type of lead or event, the service being requested, and more!

Once created, you'll have the option to choose from your saved responses when replying to your leads on The Bash. By utilizing saved responses, you'll be able to reply faster to incoming requests, leading to more bookings.

Fun fact: Almost 90% of our top 100 bookers on the site have at least one saved response and on average, they have 7 total saved responses.

How to Create Saved Responses

Follow these quick steps to locate and create your saved responses from your Member Control Panel:

  1. Log in to your Control Panel.

  2. In the navigation under the 'Leads' tab, click the Saved Responses link

  3. Click the 'Create Saved Response' button and chose whether you want to create a saved response for a quote or decline response.

  4. Enter all the information on the page about the saved response.

    For a quote saved response, this includes a name for the saved response, rate & payment information, and a personal message. For a decline saved response, this includes a name for the saved response, a decline reason and a personal message.

  5. Click the 'Save' button.

  4. On the next page, you can make any desired edits to the saved responses and click the "Save" button at the bottom once you're done.

How to Utilize and Customize Your Saved Responses

Once you've created a few saved responses, it's now time to actually use them! You have the ability to continuously access, customize, and send your saved responses as needed.

Follow these easy steps to utilize your saved responses:

  1. Log in to your Control Panel and go to your Leads tab

  2. Select the lead you would like to respond to.

  3. Under the 'Rates and Deposits' section, check the box 'Use a saved response or offer.'

  4. Select which saved response you would like to use and customize it for that party planner.

When selecting your saved response and responding to a party planner, we recommend adding personalization to the response so it's unique to each planner and their event. See below for a few ways we recommend customizing your saved responses.

5 Ways You Can Personalize Your Saved Response 

  1. Always utilize the party planner's name.

  2. Refer to their specific event and if it's a celebratory event like a wedding or anniversary, make sure to say congrats!

  3. Point out something you love or something that excites you about their event and how you can help make their event come to life. 

  4. Include pricing specific to their event.

  5. Consider including a few dates/times that you're available to speak with them more about their event and answer any questions they have.
