Online booking is rapidly becoming a standard option for consumers. With the undeniable growth of online commerce, it is easy to understand that consumers expect to have instant access to products and services.
Many practitioners and clinics have acknowledged this growing trend and responded by adding an online booking platform onto their website. By doing this, not only are they fulfilling client/consumer needs but they realize that offering an online booking option also helps them reach a wider audience and grow their customer base. Integrating a booking calendar onto your website or sales page gives you the opportunity to advertise your services and close the sale in the same place in real-time, by allowing your clients to book or purchase your service immediately after learning about it.
Practice Better allows you to seamlessly integrate your booking calendars and widgets on your webpage. If you would like to add a “Book Now” button on your sales page, opt to add a direct link to your service(s); if you want to keep your clients on the same page, opt to use a calendar widget to your website.
If you have specific services that you would like to share on your website, such as a free introductory call, meal planning or personalized coaching, you can do this by integrating a direct link or booking widget for that specific service.
If you have more than one service that you would like to share on your website, you can create a custom Bookings Page and arrange how you’d like your services and packages to be displayed. Practice Better provides you with a direct booking links for your Bookings Pages to make it easy for you to share all, or some, of your services on your website for new and potential clients to book.
