What’s New at HoneyBook: May 2019

Last month, we made a couple of updates to help you run your business smoothly. And we took to social to have an open and honest conversation with our community around self-care and mental wellness during our #MyMentalWellnessMatters Instagram challenge. Take a look to see what’s new.

iOS Mobile App Updates

  • Send the new brochure: We’ve improved the app so you can send your new brochure templates. Don’t wait until you’re back at your desk to respond to new inquiries. Send out your custom brochures for clients to review and select services – and get them booked faster than ever before.
  • Access more tools: You can now access your calendar and tasks at the top left corner of the app. From there, you can review your calendar, see upcoming tasks and mark them as complete.

Gratuity Added to Reports

You can now see your gratuity broken out from your regular income on your reports. This update can be found in a couple different places.

  • First, take a look at your Profit and Loss Report, under your Bookkeeping tab. This report allows you to see your total income against your total expenses in a specific time frame.
  • Second, you can export a Monthly or Annual Analytics Report to a CSV file to see the Gratuity column. These reports will give you a high-level view of your analytics.

HoneyBook Turned 6!

We wouldn’t be where we are today without your business, your feedback, and support. As we’ve celebrated this month, we’ve noticed that some of our biggest milestones are thanks to you.

Thank you for your business. We are so excited to continue to grow alongside you in the years to come.

Mental Health Awareness

May is Mental Health month. As small business owners, it can be difficult to take the time to focus on or talk about your own mental health. To encourage an open and honest conversation, HoneyBook sparked the #MyMentalWellnessMatters Instagram challenge.

With almost 400 shares, this community has helped promote the importance of self-care and mental wellness for small business owners. We thank you so much for your participation! Let’s continue to remind ourselves of the importance of our mental health and support our community.

Pro Tip of the Month

Reduce the time from inquiry to booked with HoneyBook automations and brochures

Did you know that you can have an automated “Thank You” email and custom brochure sent out when a client fills out your contact form? Being first to respond is a big competitive advantage when your potential client is shopping, and the brochure allows them to easily review your services and make selections. Once they’ve made their selections, HoneyBook will automatically generate a proposal for you to send out for signature and payment.

Take out the back and forth over email, along with the steps where you could lose potential clients. Make it easy for clients to see who you are and book you in minutes!

Read more about automations in our help center or register for a HB102 Advanced Training to learn more and take full advantage of these features.

Until next month…

We hope you’re as excited as we are about our new features and updates. You can find out what’s new in our monthly release notes on the blog and in our monthly member newsletter. And please keep giving us feedback at [email protected] We build HoneyBook for you and we wouldn’t be where we are without your help.

Any questions about the current releases? Head to our Help Center to learn more.

Katie DeLoach

I started my career at HoneyBook in 2015 because I was really excited about this small company that had really big ideas. They saw where the creative economy was heading and I wanted to be a part of it. I started as an Account Executive where I was able to work directly with our members on a daily basis, and was able to move into Product Marketing. When I’m not at work, you’ll find me at a yoga studio or coffee shop around San Francisco.
