Sortlist Intro Meeting
Setting up the first meeting with a client is the first step in building a new great business story. However, finding a suitable time slot for both of you can be tricky sometimes.
That's why we've improved our meeting management tool and we are excited to introduce Sortlist Intro Meeting: a dedicated room for your first video call where you and the client will be able book, modify, and follow up on your first meeting.
✅ Opportunities with Sortlist Intro Meeting
In the opportunities you receive with the Sortlist Intro Meeting option, you will be able to directly book one of the available slots in the client's calendar to have your first video call.
The meetings will be added to your calendars and you will both have the option to modify them if needed. The first video call will take place in an exclusive and secure space created in Sortlist Intro Meeting.
At Sortlist, we have been working hard to improve the technical functionalities on the tool to make sure that:
the meetings are correctly added in each others calendars
agencies and clients will see if the other party has confirmed a future attendance.
It is important that you respect the time, as it is the time the client has assigned for you, in order to enhance the experience for both of you.
🔁 Can't someone attend the meeting? Avoid surprises
One of Sortlist Intro Meeting's goals is to make sure that regardless of any changes that may arise, the meeting takes place.

Whoever wishes to reschedule the meeting will be able to create and suggest new slots to the other one.
