Online Appointment Scheduling Software
I’ve been using Acuity Scheduling to schedule my consultations for my new business on my website (www.nicoleabboud.com) Through Acuity Scheduling, you can set up the different packages or appointment types (ex: consultations, 1 hour strategy sessions, etc.) and set it up so that clients have to pay at the same time as the booking. That way, you don’t have to chase down clients for payments with invoices. It’s simple and saves a lot of time. Acuity Scheduling offers several pricing plans, including one for FREE. Give them a try!
