Word on the street is, you can now schedule appointments at your favorite local businesses through your Facebook and Instagram account! Talk about a game changer when it comes to scheduling that weekly mani/pedi, planning your next hair color, or finally booking that massage you've been eyeing! In Honor of National Small Business Week, Facebook and Instagram are now starting to integrate crucial tools to their platforms that will help Small Businesses to connect more with their consumers. Cue: Appointment Booking - Instead of having to google local salons after discovering them on Instagram or Facebook, you can instantly book an appointment directly through their profile on both apps. (Say goodbye to googling information and phone calls to the salon!) Here's How: Book your appointment on Facebook by choosing the 'Book Now' option on the Facebook Page of the business and book on Instagram via the 'Book' button on the Instagram Profile of the business (easy, right?!).
THE GOOD NEWS TOO - ALL Businesses have access to 'Appointments' on Facebook and Instagram at no charge! With this new feature, businesses can attract new customers by adding an extra layer of convenience without them having to text or call to book. Not only does this save time, but it also makes it easier for businesses to manage their calendar as well! Here's to making appointments at your favorite local salons without ever having to leave the app!! Thank you Facebook and Instagram! To learn more about Facebook Appointments, click here.
