Book More Appointments from Facebook

Book More Appointments from Facebook (Guide for Coaches, Trainers, Consultants, Schools, Studios, Salons etc)

Your Facebook Page is a reliable marketing channel to get your business more appointments. With the Facebook Booking Tab you allow followers to schedule appointments with you.

Choose Your Service

There are plenty of tools to allow your clients to schedule appointments, pay, and complete forms online 24/7. The price range varies from free plans with one calendar tab to advanced bookings which will cost you $50+ a month. All of the 3 tools below are integrated with Facebook:

Set It Up For Free

In this step-by-step guide you will learn how to set up your Scheduling Tab with no money or help from a developer. I use Setmore’s plugin for Facebook which displays a fully functional Booking Page on your timeline.

Create Your Booking Calendar

Go to setmore.com and create a free account. You can sign up with Facebook.

Delegate Members

Add your staff. You can add as many email addresses as you need. When customers book services, members of your team will be notified too. Incredible, huh?

Add Services

Now it’s time to add your services. If you offer fitness classes – let them know about the duration, price, and teacher for specific classes. You can add as many classes as you need as well. Feel free to edit price and duration each time.

Add Book Now Button

There are two methods for adding Setmore to Facebook: you may install the Setmore plugin for Facebook, or you may add a “Book Now” button that links to your Setmore Booking Page. For best results, I recommend doing both methods.  Note that the Setmore plugin for Facebook cannot be installed via the Facebook mobile app, but you can still add the “Book Now” button from the mobile app. For maximum ease and convenience, it’s best to do the install from a desktop or laptop computer.

  1. Click on the button below your cover photo

  1. Select “Book Now” from the list of available options.

  1. Next enter the URL for your Setmore Booking Page. You can find this URL by navigating to Apps & Integrations in your Setmore account, and clicking the “Configure” button below Your Booking Page.

Copy paste your link.

After you paste the URL in the form field, click “Save Changes”

Booking Appointments for Different Business Industries

You don’t need to have weekly classes to integrate this feature into your Facebook Page. So who else can use it? Pretty cool, right?
