How to add a “Book Now” button on Facebook in 5 steps
Apr 20, 2022
Facebook has been the most popular social media platform in the latest years. We all know that lately, people have started to buy and sell things, post about their personal life experiences, promote their jobs, and so on. With this in mind, it is pretty obvious that appointment-based businesses need a solution to book appointments through their Facebook pages.
Facebook’s “Book Now” button is a feature that eases the scheduling process between a business and its clients and is a great way to market your salon. If you want more people coming to your salon, you must include call-to-action everywhere on your profile. For example, you can add it to your profile description, photos description, and more to activate your “Book Now” button.
According to statistics, 76% of clients use mobile devices to book appointments. But, did you know that online booking reduces staff labor by doing the administrative work for them?
