Premium Subscribers can use templates right from the Lead Market. Make the most of Free leads by responding with a template message in just one click. It’s never been faster to reach out to new prospects.
Responses sent through the Eventective system may include up to five attachments. Include rate sheets, contract terms, sample menus, or any file that will help close the deal – add multiple attachments at once to any message or template.
The Event Manager and Lead Market feature a powerful Search Tool to find leads in any folder. Search by Name, Email, Event Date or Lead ID.
For example, if you are interested in filling a specific date, use the search box to find events planned on that day. Enter the date in almost any format, select the search button and you will see all the events in your area planned for that date, even ones you may have already archived.
Archive Multiple Leads

Sales Process Tool
The Event Timeline has the potential to be a comprehensive business tracking tool. By using the features of the Event Manager to record your sales activities, you create an auditable history of your sales process.
Events recorded in the Timeline:
