Booka.me makes it easy for businesses of any size to manage appointments, get paid, and reach more customers. Use our automated tools to keep your appointment calendar current and to encourage customer referrals and online reviews. Personalized appointment reminders and simple rescheduling tools help reduce no-shows.
Booka.me empowers your customers to request appointments directly through your website or Facebook page. Customers can manage their appointments from mobile devices or log in to the website.
Because Booka.me is based “in the cloud,” you do not have to hire a technical person or become a tech expert yourself to use it. There is no complicated software to install and we handle all of the upgrades and updates for you. A Booka.me Premium subscription is only a fraction of the cost of other Client Relationship Management (CRM) systems, but Booka.me does a lot more.
Let’s say that you’re a Chiropractor and your 10 a.m. slot is not as busy as you’d like. You log onto http://www.booka.me, and make a discounted coupon for 10 a.m. Monday through Friday for one week.
Then, you click and post this coupon to your facebook wall, LinkedIn feed, google+, and tweet it out to your followers. You can even copy and paste the coupon widget code into your email marketing and do an email blast to your database.
In a matter of seconds you’ve let your entire social media circle know that you have a time slot open at a discounted price.
You’re creating your own demand for your services. You keep 100% of the coupon proceeds – and you’ve filled your open appointment times.
Now this is Social Marketing!
Use Client Groups to create subsets of clients. You can use these subsets to make services available only to select clients. For example, a massage therapist might want to offer a special rate to members of a local yoga studio. The massage therapist creates a client group and adds the yoga students to it. The massage therapist then creates a service that is only available to members of the yoga group. (About Services)
You can create client groups even if you do not have any clients to add to the group. You can add or remove clients at any time. However, if a client has booked an appointment for a service that is only available to the group, the appointment is not canceled automatically when you remove that client from the group. If you do not want to keep the appointment, cancel it manually.
Clients are the people who request appointments with you. Once a person is in your client list, you can view their Booka.me profile, view their appointment history, or send them an appointment request. You can also send a promotional email or coupon to one or more clients.
Your Clients list expands in a number of ways. Booka.me automatically adds anyone who requests an appointment with you. You can use the Invite Your Clients button to send invitations by email. If the client already has a Booka.me account, they appear in your Clients list immediately. However, service providers cannot add a client to the Clients list if the client does not already have a Booka.me account.
You can remove a service permanently by deleting it from your Services list. Removing a service does not cancel pending or scheduled bookings for that service, but it does remove it from the list so clients cannot request appointments for that service after you remove it.
- Log in to your Booka.me account.
- On the Dashboard, click Services. (About Services)
- Find the service in the Services list and click the delete icon.
- When prompted, click OK to remove the service or click Cancel to keep the service without removing it.
Services are the types of appointments you make available to clients through Booka.me. When clients use Booka.me to request an appointment with you, they select a specific service from a list. You can add, remove, or modify services at any time. You can also make a service unavailable temporarily.
