Remember Grover's Corners Let customers book online appointments with HourTown

Posted by tom klein April 9, 2008

You’ve established a presence across the search engines, driven a respectable amount of traffic to your website, and even converted the curious browser to the ready-to-commit customer. One small problem- that customer can only get to your email or voicemail inbox when what he/she really wants to do is set up an appointment.

Think about using the online scheduling tool HourTown to close the deal right on your site. Once you create an account, you set up your service offerings and rates. Then HourTown generates a custom calendar for your business. Once you have a calendar with available time slots, you’re almost there. All you need to do is take the system’s “Book Now” button and put it where you need it – your website, mail signature, or e-newsletter.

You may even learn that your customers prefer to book your services online. Given that this tool is free, why not book some time with it.

Frustrated by your clients or customers who set up an appointment and then flake out or forget? This system can also send a reminder message to your appointment holders so you can decrease no-shows.

There’s something to be said for getting your customers to commit to an appointment. So many companies drop the ball because the right person doesn’t connect with the specific prospect. If you let your prospects set up appointments, you can be sure to match them up with the right sales person.
