8 Tips to Boost Visibility and Customer Engagement with Scheduling Pro’s Scheduler
As a proud user of Scheduling Pro’s Scheduler, you have a powerful tool to streamline your appointment booking process and attract more customers. To maximize this widget's potential, we've compiled eight tips to help you amplify its visibility and usage, ultimately driving more business!
Consider modifying your website buttons to direct visitors to your Scheduler rather than traditional form submissions or email links. This user-friendly approach takes the user directly there and encourages potential customers to take immediate action. Once they've arrived, let our Scheduler take the reins and guide your customer through a seamless booking experience.
To ensure that the "Book Now" button remains visible to your customers as they scroll down your website, convert your header into a sticky bar. What’s a Sticky bar? Glad you asked. Imagine a sticky bar on a website as a small, unmovable strip that you see at the top or bottom of the page, even when scrolling up and down. It usually has important stuff like messages, buttons to click, or links you might need. It's called "sticky" because it sticks to the screen, so you don't have to return to the top to use what's in it. Websites use sticky bars for things like showing news, telling you about special deals, or giving you fast access to essential parts of the site.
Additionally, changing the color of the "Book Now" sticky button to an attention-grabbing shade like green or red can enhance its visibility and encourage more clicks. This change makes the button stand out more and be readily noticeable. Color is an important design element, and green might be chosen because it contrasts with other colors on the page and is associated with actions like "Go" or "Proceed."
Incorporate a direct to scheduler link to your Scheduler in your email signatures. This small but impactful change makes it easy for your email recipients to schedule appointments with you, converting potential leads into customers.
Engage with your customers on a platform they frequently use by embedding a link to your Scheduler in your Facebook Messenger. You can go a step further by setting up an automated response that includes the scheduler link. This enables customers to book with you while chatting, creating a seamless and convenient experience.
Promoting your website on Instagram can be an effective way to increase traffic and engagement. It's a great way to get new eyes on your business. Explore how to get people from Instagram to your website booking page.
Best practices for social media campaigns:
In your Instagram bio, add a shortened link to your Scheduler using a service like Bitly (or a similar tool). Accompany this link with a compelling message like, "Schedule online now using the link below!" The brevity and directness of the message will encourage more followers to take action and book with you. Add a shortened link (using Bitly or a similar tool).
To expand your reach and reach potential customers actively searching for services like yours, integrate your scheduler with Yelp. To facilitate this, kindly reach out to their marketing team at firstname.lastname@example.org, and they should guide you through the setup process. This integration can significantly increase your visibility and attract new customers to your business.
Imagine you have a customer who has used you for small HVAC jobs in the past. Your technicians left behind a magnet or sticker on their furnace that has your name, phone number, logo, etc. Now, with the technology of QR codes, that magnet could include a direct link to your Scheduling Pro scheduler. When that customer’s furnace breaks, and they are without heat - what is going to be the first thing they see? Your magnet! with a link to schedule an appointment right away. The easier the flow, the more likely they are to book - which is why having a direct-to-schedule link is ideal.
