Last year I started working in a new firm, completely on the other side of town to which I had worked previously. Due to the nature of my work and the number of projects I had running on the side, it made sense for me to get to know the local area and it’s amenities. One service I needed to find urgently was a quality hairdresser; aka barbershop near my new work.
I decided to go for a stroll during my lunch break to get a feel for the area. As I came across several barbershops, I walked in and enquired about their charges for a men’s haircut. Thank goodness I was standing because if I had been sitting, I would have fallen off my chair. Outrages prices!
A couple of days went by and I asked one of my colleagues at work. He mentioned a babershop and told me to book some time with Ricky. I didn’t have a clue where this was so I grabbed the name and searched online to get a number. When I entered their website, I found a button which said “Book an Appointment”. I was pleasantly surprised as this would save me a phone call.
- I clicked on the “Book an Appointment” button.
- Selected the day I was interested in getting my hair cut
- Selected the type of service, in this case a Haircut and a Beard Trim
- Then selected Ricky from the dropdown list of employees.
I was blown away, not because it was anything fancy but because it was so easy. This little experience stayed with me until recently as I’ve always thought, what a great little plugin this is as every hairdresser should have one.
Not only will this make this easier for their prospective customers but it’ll saved hours of phone calls which means instead of the employees answering calls, they can focus on what they do best. Styling snd cutting hair.
So it was by chance that I came across this piece of online booking plugin/software; actually it’s a WordPress booking plugin with an amazing user interface; not only for the customer but for you as the client too. Get the Drum Roll going… I present to you
