Is your business ready for the festive season?

About Booksy, Features,

Warning, we’re about to say the c word. Christmas – it’s just around the corner! ‘Tis the season where the nails are glitzy, the lashes are longer, the beards are finely trimmed and those bookings are coming in thick and fast. Inevitably, with the festivities, come the many questions from panicked customers like, “what’s your availability this week?” “Do you do evening appointments?” And “are you open Christmas/New Years eve?”

One simple feature in Booksy can answer all of these for you, so your customers can rest easy knowing exactly when they can book in, and you can carry on focusing on doing what you love.

Booksy’s Work Schedule tool is here to simplify the busiest time of the year for all those hard workers in the health & beauty world. In a couple of clicks, you can ensure that the world will know that your business is officially closed for the holidays, no matter how long or short that is, or that you’ll be extending your open hours during the week to make sure all your customers are Christmas-party ready.

And just to put the cherry on the Christmas cake, you can then shout about your festive open hours and availability by using our wonderful social post creator tool – eliminate the stress of telling all your customers too! (Want to know more? Just click here!)

Check out our video below for a handy how-to visual guide on how to use Booksy Work Schedule to show your customers when you’re available over the holiday season.
