One of the biggest selling features of any spa is that it is a place where clients can come and relax, forgetting about the worries of their day for a while. It’s a little bit ironic that so many spas can actually add stress to their client’s days through the booking process.
You may ask how is that possible? How is our booking process adding to the daily stresses our clients come here to get away from?
Well, consider the age of convenience that we live in. People are looking for ways to cut time out of almost everything they do, and booking appointment is certainly one of them. They no longer want to spend time on the telephone, trying to find out which appointments are booked and which ones taken, and figuring out a time which works best both for them and for the spa itself.
By using an online booking system for your spa, you can avoid adding to the stress burden of your clients. Instead of phoning in and comparing calendar dates, all they have to do is log onto your site on the computer.
There, they see the days of the week, possibly months in advance, and which time slots are free and which are taken. They can easily select the time slot they want to receive their treatment, without ever having to pick up a telephone.
Online booking is good for repeat clients, too. How many times have you heard a client tell you she will phone you from home after an appointment, because she needs to check her calendar first? And of course, nine times out of ten, that phone call never comes.
With an online booking system, that client can book her appointment months in advance, again without having to worry about picking up the phone. Your schedule is up 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so there’s no worry about losing a client during off hours either.
