 Booking Software Online Testimonial
I recent­ly told a few of you about a sim­ple sched­ul­ing pro­gram for Google Cal­en­dar that I liked called You​Can​Book​.me. The over­all design of the pro­gram is not as cool as some of the larg­er com­pa­nies such as Schedulic­i­ty, Gen­books, Set­ster or Book­fresh. Yet You​Can​Book​.me works extreme­ly well with Google Cal­en­dar: almost too well. Below is a tes­ti­mo­ni­al from Steve from Bur­nett Paint­ing in South­west Flori­da (yes he has been on my blogs before) on how he is using You​Can​Book​.me and his first” expe­ri­ence with a booked lead.
Hi David, A quick tes­ti­mo­ni­al: You shared www​.you​can​book​.me with me last week. I had Javier plug it into the front page of my site right away! While its not pret­ty we are work­ing on that. Well last Fri­day I received an e‑mail on my phone while on the road for a book­ing” for Mon­day the 16th at 4pm. How the you​can​book​.me lead went: At first I was con­cerned because Mark, the prospec­t’s, e mail’s with me were VERY short. Is the guy not cool? Is this a plant from a com­peti­tor? I arrived today and learn he is a sales rep for sprin­kler sys­tems out of CA and he drinks Red Bull, HA! So he is very busy and on a sug­ar rush, too busy for long e‑mails. My cal­en­dar on my front page was PER­FECT for him. I mea­sured the inte­ri­or and hand­ed him our first rate pro­pos­al and went over it and his e‑mail chimes on his phone. Its my local com­peti­tor with their pro­pos­al. They come in at 60% of my price! I still closed the job with deposit check in hand ! Front page you​can​book​.me cal­en­dar” is 1 for 1 baby! Thanks for the you​can​book​.me cal­en­dar tip David! Steve :) www​.bur​nettpaint​ing​.com
I am impressed with Steve’s idea to put the cal­en­dar right on the home page. Most com­pa­nies put forms to fill out for some­one to con­tact the prospect. Steve decid­ed to save that step and put the cal­en­dar right on the home page, which to be hon­est, I’ve nev­er seen before. Why? Because it does­n’t real­ly look as pret­ty and cool. Web design­ers tend to design for looks rather than con­ver­sions. Yet Steve’s idea worked! Peo­ple search­ing online are typ­i­cal­ly in a hur­ry. They don’t stop to read much these days when look­ing for a ser­vice com­pa­ny. So mak­ing it easy for peo­ple to sched­ule an appoint­ment that is con­ve­nient for them, saves them time! I applaud Steve to step­ping out of the typ­i­cal design stan­dards, putting the cal­en­dar right smack in the mid­dle of his home page and doing some­thing dif­fer­ent! Well done, Steve!
