Service business owners often need the ability to schedule appointments online to help them automate their businesses. However, many of the systems available require a steep learning curve to get started, are complicated to set up, or don’t work as you would like.
Enter Time Trade. Time Trade is a revolutionary appointment invitation system that will compel your customers and community to schedule time with you. By embedding a “schedule now” button in email messages and on Web pages, you’ll drive more appointments with fewer hassles than ever before. Time Trade is for sales professionals, entrepreneurs, executives, consultants, service providers and anyone who wants to invite others to schedule a personal interaction with them – whether on the phone or in person.
Time Trade software lets you email appointment invitations or appointment requests and see appointments flow back into your Google calendar or your Outlook calendar. Time Trade also integrates with Salesforce.com using a free tool available on the SalesForce.com AppExchange.
When you synch your calendar to Time Trade, any already-scheduled appointments you have on your calendar are not shown as available in Time Trade, even though some may be the times you have pre-selected for your availability, and booked appointments automatically show up in your calendar.
I don’t use the email marketing feature much, but I do like the ability to send my personal Time Trade URL to people who want to schedule appointments with me.
I can set up various kinds of appointments:
The client reviews a custom Welcome message and then chooses the appropriate selection and then moves on to see my availability using her time zone info. I can set up this appointment with a preset list of instructions (who’s calling whom, for example, and questions that need to be answered before the appointment). Confirmation and reminder messages are also sent to the appointment setter.
Time Trade offers a free, 90-day, no credit card required trial. If you like the system, you can keep it for only $49/year for the Professional edition, or free for the Personal Edition.
