Examples of great requests

Our customers set up their templates and requests in many different ways, so we picked some of the best examples we have seen. Following examples of great requests is an easy way to get the most value from Content Snare.

These should give you some ideas on how to best use Content Snare for your projects.

Note: There’s also an article on how to create amazing requests just in case you prefer a text-based guide.

Example # 1 – Allkind Joinery

Josh from Allkind wanted their clients to feel valued like they were receiving a portal that was custom built just for them. Some of the ways he’s achieved that is by:

  • Basing requests from a template, but customizing instructions for each client and prefilling any known information before sending it over
  • Adding a designed, branded email signature to reminders
  • Creating custom, on-brand banners throughout their requests

Note that Josh isn’t a graphic designer. He created the banners himself using Canva, and they add such a nice touch to Allkind’s requests:

Josh wanted to make sure Content Snare worked well and was received well by clients, so the Allkind Joinery team went through a few rounds of testing and revisions:

  1. Team review – Created version 1 of their request and sent it to a few team members who had never seen Content Snare before
  2. Adjust – Took their feedback, made the request better, and sent it to a few other team members
  3. Repeated 1 & 2 until happy
  4. Client testing – Sent their request to a few clients, explaining that they were using a new tool, and would like some feedback on the experience
  5. Adjust – Rolled in any suggested improvements and made changes if clients reported getting stuck

In reality, steps 4 & 5 are ongoing. Whenever you notice clients getting stuck on the same questions, it’s an opportunity to improve by adding instructions or examples.

All that said, here’s the interview with Josh from Allkind Joinery.
