I love hearing a ding on my iPhone when a customer schedules an appointment. My web site has a form for new customers to request appointments.
I reply with a simple email linking them to my calendar, and PianoCal guides them to appointment times based on their location.
(The reminders I send to repeat customers already have a link to my calendar.) Customers enjoy having several calendar choices available to them.
They like using PianoCal, and I do, too.
The geolocation feature makes me efficient to the point where I often have time for an extra appointment.
When I am booked farther from home, it schedules others along that route. Appointments are closer together with less downtime in between.
Customers can choose what services they want, and PianoCal builds the time into my day.
I have never been that good at upselling cleaning or voicing because it would involve setting up another appointment or mess up my schedule.
When my customers choose it themselves, PianoCal adds the time and schedules accordingly.
These add-on services brought in $105 in October, $180 in November, and $340 in December, more than covering the cost of the system.
PianoCal is an unexpected (and brilliant!) contribution to our trade that definitely makes my business easier to run and increases my income.
