One thing I love about Facebook is that they are always hanging and adding new features every now and then keeping up with the current problems facing businesses. Their features are very convenient and effective, to a point that you can manage your entire business on Facebook without ever needing a website. And actually that s their goal. Facebook tries as much as possible to discourage you from leaving the site. If you have been managing Facebook pages long enough yo may have noticed that external links get the least organic reach as compared to photos and videos.
Facebook added a feature which is very useful to a business, however, I haven’t seen people making a fuss about it online. Did you know that your clients can schedule an appointment right on Facebook? They get to choose their convenient time and the type of service they want. For instance on our Silver Klique Studio page we are offering 3 services; Photography, Online Marketing Strategy, and Web Development & Maintenance. So a client gets to choose which service they want, time and duration. This is very important especially for businesses that have a number of services, it helps you plan and prepare accordingly.
More to that, the clients get to see which days are available and which are taken. This ensures that there are no double booking. In case a client decides to call in or just send a reservation email, you have the option of creating the appointment as an admin. You will enter the client’s name, appointment time, the services needed, and yo can add some additional notes which is only visible the your other admins.
This tool is going to save a lot of time and money for most small businesses. Initially you needed a sophisticated website or third party software’s to help you schedule appointments, but now you can do all that from your Facebook/Instagram page
If you want to test how it works you can book an appointment with us through this link BOOK NOW and see how the process goes. Just leave a note saying it’s a test and we’ll contact you to get feedback on the experience.
