Hands On Card Sales — The Pilot

Guide your clients through their card purchase, every step of the way.

Being the Pilot means that you are in control of every step of your sales process. This method is a perfect fit if personal attention and careful guidance are cornerstones of your business model.

You will create designs that are thoughtfully personalized to match your clients desires and share proofs with them through unbranded links so that they can review and approve their order. Invoicing and payment should still be handled through your normal process outside of Studio, and you will use your Projects to stay organized and submit final orders.

With this method you do not need to concern yourself with your Studio Settings as your client will only be interacting with one of the built in collaboration tools, the Share Proof tool.
