We love nothing more than hearing stories of success from our small business customers. Yesterday there we all were, beavering away behind the scenes at Timely, when we heard from our customer Ria, from Aurum Hairsylists.

Small business gets more online bookings with Timely

It really is the ideal situation getting new bookings, while taking a well-deserved break. That sounds too good to be true. But it’s not really. It can happen for you, too.

As you can see, Aurum Hairstylists are using two techniques that we recommend to get more online bookings. Their website has a nice shiny booking function that is placed above the fold. Above the fold means the portion of the web page that is visible in the web browser when it first loads. So it is super easy for visitors to the website to see how they can make an appointment.

The second technique they are using is the Timely Book Now button on their Facebook page. This coupled with a good Facebook strategy will result in customers, both old and new, using this easy booking function.

So, what are you going to do to increase your online bookings?
