Team Appointedd is getting excited... On the first Wednesday of November 2014, the hi-growth speed pitch challenge will take place in Edinburgh - and we've got some friends taking part! So it was the perfect opportunity for us to have a chat with the organiser of Business Forum Scotland, Mary Strachan, and some of the participants. An exciting opportunity for Appointedd to have a talk with other entrepreneurs - one of our favourite things to do!
Reviews are the lifeblood of attracting new business online. Your potential customers are bound to check you out before booking with you, so having lots of previous customers saying how great you are can only be a good thing, right?
Has today’s work flown by or is it dragging along? You may be surprised to find that everything from how tired you are to how hot the room is might affect how your brain has perceived the passage of time. We’ve looked previously at how you can manage your time when you’re working, but if you think that time is running away from you, read on to find out some reasons why it could be happening.
If you are reading this, chances are you started using Appointedd (or another online booking software, that’s fine too!) or that you are considering doing so for your business. Well, that is great! Switching to online booking is a great way to improve your business and be more efficient. Starting to use an online booking system requires a bit of adaptation for you, but that’s not all. If you want your customers to switch to booking online instead of calling or sending emails/messages on social media, it will require that they change their habits. That is something you can help with.
We love pet services businesses here at Appointedd. We ourselves work with some dog walkers and we can see how passionate and attentive they are with their little wards (well, they're not all that little). People want to find those kinds of people to take care of their pets. Leaving the care of the family’s pet(s) to someone they don't know is not that easy because people are not sure they can actually trust you. We have here some advice you can use to promote your dog grooming/pet sitting/dog walking business.
Our Facebook booking app frequently gets a lot of interest. The small businesses world is very wide. We are aware that some small companies do not wish to have a website or do not have the resources to have one. Working with Facebook has its advantages. It is easy, convenient and above all it is free. We get that. While we offer a free booking website for our users, we know that some of them want to stay exclusively on Facebook. That is why we launched the Facebook booking app months ago. This feature is available in our free 14-day trial. It is now the time to tell you more about this feature.
When you’re running a business, sometimes it’s the little ways that you interact with your customers that can make a big difference. Here are some examples of businesses that delighted their customers with the small things:
Appointment scheduling can be a true nightmare. From people calling late and leaving messages, to cancellations and no shows, there is a lot to handle and can be overwhelming. Appointedd fits perfectly as a salon software to help you get rid of those problems. Our online booking tools allow your customers to book an appointment from different platforms (your website, a customized Appointedd booking website or your Facebook page) at all times.
