When you send an email, your recipient will have a quick and easy way of reserving time in your calendar. This is particularly ideal for time-sensitive communications within the sales funnel. With a book an appointment button, your leads have no need to look elsewhere while you figure out a time to meet. Lengthy email threads are no more.
For the whole team.
All staff members in your Setmore account can add their personal booking links to their email signature ‘Book Now’ buttons. When a recipient books an appointment, they receive an instant email confirmation and the service provider’s calendar auto-updates. Both the recipient and service provider are also sent custom email reminders.
A similar process can be used to add a schedule appointment button to other email services such as Outlook, Yahoo and ProtonMail. If you need help getting started, begin a chat with us or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
