Recently, I've been thinking about the different ways clients can schedule appointments for a session. I'm sure the majority here, myself included, schedule their appointments via phone/e-mail. But is there a more effective way? I came across a few automated scheduling applications and one of them really stood out to me. It's called Setmore. I like the idea of my clients being able to go to my website and easily scheduled an appointment via this application -- but I'm very apprehensive. Do you any of you have any experience using a website plug-in software that allows your clients to schedule an session through your website? I'm curious to see if something like this would prove to be effective and more efficient than traditional methods. I can see how this sort of application can work with a photographer with a lot of demand and this type of method can easily help manage bookings. As a photographer, I receive about an average of 5-6 bookings a month, so I'm wondering if this kind of booking method would be worth it. I schedule all of my appointments though e-mail/phone and sometimes text. I use Google Calendars to keep track of my appointments and I usually go back-and-forth a few times with a client to find a time that works for the both of us. So far, I haven't had any issues scheduling a client but I'd like to see if I can make improvements.
