A great program to use in your business is appointment scheduling software. This kind of software enables you to put a link in a message, on your website, or elsewhere so people can schedule an appointment with you directly on your calendar. This prevents a lot of wasted time making phone calls to schedule appointments or sending emails back and forth. Talk about a time saver!
There are quite a few calendar scheduling programs out there but Acuity Scheduling is my favorite. It is easy to customize this scheduler with your brand colors and logos as well as set up various types of appointments for multiple blocks of time. You can even set it up to accept payments for certain types of meetings!
