Marketing Dashboard

Once the Marketing Privileges are enabled, you’ll be able to access the Marketing tab. If there are no activated campaigns, you’ll see the welcome message which will walk you through creating your first Boulevard Marketing campaign!

From here you’ll be able to view and build all of your Marketing Campaigns. To begin setting up a campaign, choose between Automated Campaigns or One-Time Blasts.

If you do have campaigns previously or currently enabled, you’ll see a summary page including basic stats and campaign reporting to give you a snapshot of how your campaigns are performing. From this dashboard view, you can always click “Create Campaign” to start a new Automated Campaign or One-Time Blast from scratch.

Automated Campaigns Overview

Five automated, always-on, recurring campaigns are available for you to choose from, each with a different focus to help you engage and retain your customers. They take the guesswork out of build, targeting, and cadence, are easy to set up, and require minimal maintenance.

Automated campaigns cost nothing to set up and start running, but you will be charged $2 for each booked appointment within 7 days of the automated email having been sent. In automated campaigns, we only charge you for bookings made, not for emails sent.

  • Fill slow days - Promote days where your calendar has open appointments to keep schedules stacked

    • Designed to automatically review a service provider’s calendar and send emails to clients that are the most likely to book based on Boulevard's campaign optimization. This campaign will evaluate availability 7 days in advance and email clients to increase your bookings. Enter the availability threshold to determine when emails should be sent.

  • Reminder to book - Remind your clients to book their next appointment

    • Keep clients coming back by reminding them to make another appointment after a determined period of time. This campaign will only email clients if they don’t have an upcoming appointment. Boulevard will send emails to clients after a specific number of days who haven’t rebooked their next appointment.

  • Rescue lost clients - Win back clients who haven’t visited in a while

    • Retain clients by automatically messaging those who haven’t hadn’t an appointment in a certain number of days since their last visit. Enter the number of days after their last appointment.

  • Last-minute opening - Give clients first dibs on an appointment when your calendar has a last-minute opening.

    • Designed to automatically review a service provider’s calendar and send emails to clients that are the most likely to book based on Boulevard's campaign optimization. This campaign will evaluate availability 2 days in advance and email clients to increase your bookings. Enter the availability threshold to determine when emails should be sent.

  • Birthday message - Say happy birthday to your clients on their special day!

    • Automatically send a message to clients to incentivize them to book services for their birthday. This campaign will send to clients who have a birthday saved in their client profile on a specific day before their birthday (ex. 1 week before).

One-Time Blasts Overview

One-Time Blast campaigns are perfect for ad-hoc, one-time email sends. The messaging, branding, target audience, and send day are up to you. You can build your own custom email, set up your desired segmentation, and schedule your email campaign. One-Time Blasts are perfect for communications like newsletters, promotions, important announcements and business notifications, and more!
