Prospects, suppliers, friends... Do you want to have all your coworking community contacts in one place? Cobot can help with that.
Tracking Leads within Cobot
Just create a new plan, with a zero monthly fee and no hours of use of the space included, and call it 'contacts' or 'leads'.
Create members with custom fields to track all the information you need. You can do this in Setup -> Custom fields.
You can send your leads targeted MailChimp emails using this guide
What about my member total? We calculate your Cobot members only as members that pay a recurring monthly fee. So these contacts won't cost you a thing (neither will your drop-ins or clients that only book resources).
You can add your contacts individually or send us a database to have all contacts automatically added to your Cobot space. When they are ready to be converted to a customer - just change their plan.
Using Zapier to connect Cobot with an external CRM
You can also have all of these contacts feed directly into a traditional CRM software (Salesforce, Capsule, Hubspot, Highrise and Base) by using our integration with Zapier.com.
Setup an integration with Zapier and the CRM of your choice so that new Cobot members are automatically added to your CRM.
Use their plan type as your customer "Tag" in the CRM. (We will be releasing pre-made integration suggestions in the next couple weeks to help get started more quickly.)
Now like above - create a new plan, with a zero monthly fee and no hours of use of the space included, and call it 'contacts' or 'leads'.
Create a new member and watch them auto-populate into your CRM where you can setup follow-ups or other actions.
