Generate new leads with ease
Growing your social media presence allows your new leads to easily book their own appointments online by adding a TimeTrade appointment scheduling link to the top of your profile. By creating this clear call to action (CTA), you enable customers and prospects to book an appointment with your company making the process fast and simple. Your schedule appears and they can choose the best time to meet with a member of your sales or support team.
Add a TimeTrade Link to Your Page
In Twitter and LinkedIn, one of the first things people see about your company is the small "About Us" section at the top of your profile. Simply adding your TimeTrade link gives prospects an easy way to connect with you. Instead of relying on the prospect to call for an appointment, as many businesses do on social media, your prospects can quickly and easily book an appointment with your team online.
Expand your reach through socials
Implementing online scheduling enables your customers and prospects to share their experience on their own social media channels. When they do this, your business taps into an expanded network, extending your social media reach and attracting more people within your target market. When you keep the process simple, your customers are able to share their experiences and thus increasing your exposure to other potential high-quality leads.
Let your sales staff do what they do best–sell
Your marketing team can use social media and the online scheduling software from TimeTrade to fill up the calendars of your sales staff. This way, your team spends less time trying to find people to sell to and more time driving new revenue for your business.
