Online Tools for Appointment Scheduling

Scheduling ToolSometimes you may have an occasion to schedule a meeting, one on one appointment or a group gathering with someone else.

Those of you in direct sales also deal with this when booking home parties or business opportunity appointments.

No matter what type of business you are in, rather than trying to catch all participants on the phone, or dealing with lots of emails back and forth, I’ve found it really helpful to use some online scheduling tools.

If you go to their websites you can investigate further. You’ll find that some are free, some are paid, some include database storage, some include reminders, and some even include buttons for your website or Facebook page. Some are designed for booking one on one appointments, and others are ideal for scheduling groups. Some even allow you to take payment from your client if you have something like a coaching business and charge for phone calls.

Using these tools has allowed me to control my calendar more efficiently AND book solid dates more quickly.

I have experience with these:

  1. Schedulicity
  2. TimeTrade
  4. Google Calendar
  5. Genbook
  6. Meet-o-matic

    I’ve only used Google Calendar. I’ve heard quite a bit of buzz about Schedulicity lately though. Thanks for the options!
