The traditional way to remind people about their appointments is to call them. But getting a hold of anyone
by phone is not as easy as it used to be. Now we have an entire generation of people who dislike talking on
the phone and who will rarely pick up when it rings.
Text Reminders Invite Quick Responses
Fortunately, you can still remind these people of their appointments by using text reminders. With AppointmentReminders.com, you can send a text message with all the details,
and your customers can text back to confirm, reschedule, or cancel (entirely customizeable).
One of the advantages of using SMS reminders is that they can be answered right away even if your customer is engaged in some other activity.
It only takes a second or two to send a quick text, but answering a phone call or responding to a voicemail message requires a bigger time commitment.
Schedule Your Text Reminders
It’s important to schedule your reminders at the appropriate time. If you send the reminder too far in advance, then the appointment might be
forgotten again. Most importantly, your reminder needs to encourage your customers to take action and confirm their appointment with you.
Once you implement our reminder system, you’ll benefit right away. Your no-shows will decrease, and you’ll spend less time at work waiting for customers.
Customers don’t want to miss out on their appointments, either. They’ll be happy that you reminded them. It’s a win-win!
