April Showers

We’ve already blogged about how spring is back and we’re all excited that the (seemingly) endless winter season is finally over. Summer is on its way and that’s definitely great news.

However, one of the not-so-fantastic parts of spring’s return is all the rain that comes with it. The gloriously sunny days are interrupted by unexpected showers and storms, and some days can be just downright gray. We’re not too gloomy about it, though.

While we’re not actually singing at our desks right now, it is about to start pouring down rain outside. If you google, “ways to be productive on a rainy day,” we bet you’ll get a lot of results. We definitely did. Here’s just one example: this website lists ten things to get done while it’s raining outside. Organizing definitely makes their list, and that happens to be our specialty.

During one of the many showers that will pop up throughout the month, we recommend that you take a few minutes to either sign up for ScheduleThing or to update the ScheduleThing site you already have. It’s free and easy to do, and we bet you’ll instantly feel like you spent the gloomy day well. What better way to be productive than by setting up your own online booking site?

It’s professional and affordable, so you’ll improve your marketability to clients without breaking the bank. Go ahead, while it’s raining you’re stuck inside anyway. Take the product tour and get started now, before all the April showers actually bring the May flowers they promised!

Case of the Mondays

We know, it’s Monday. There’s one thing we all have in common on Sunday nights: we don’t want the weekend to end! The work week is long and for some reason Mondays always seem like the longest days of all.

HowStuffWorks recently came up with some ways to make working on Monday a little better, though. Their “10 Ways to Organize Your Home Office By Next Monday” will help you de-stress and work more effectively— and these tips can apply to your office at work as well as at home.

Our favorite is #2 on their list, “Rein in your calendar and to-do lists.” We think we know a software that can help with that (hint: it’s us!). Instead of relying on disorganized post-it notes, planners, and desk calendars, streamlining with ScheduleThing is much easier and more efficient. When you’re less stressed about your schedule, it’s much easier to focus on getting your work done and getting Monday over and done with as soon as possible!

If you try these tips, let us know what kinds of results you get and what worked best for you. By this time next Monday, you could have a newly organized office, plus an awesome new way to keep track of scheduling and appointments!

Super Easy Booking

super-bowl

Yesterday was one of the greatest sports (and junk food) nights of the year. Whether you watched for the game itself or just for the commercials, we bet you were tuned in. And if you didn’t quite make it to the final minutes, we’ll just tell you— it was a close game! With a final score of 34 to 31, it wasn’t an easy game for either the Ravens or the 49ers. But while you’re probably still recovering from overindulging in wings, pizza, and nachos, we want to tell you about something that is easy: setting up a ScheduleThing account!

In just minutes, you can be scheduling your appointments and accepting reservations online from your clients. It’s as simple as entering your business’s information and creating your reservation types and resources.

And did we mention that it’s free to sign up? Touchdown!

Resolve to Stay on Track

It’s now nearing the end of January and for some of us, those new year’s resolutions that we were definitely going to stick with this time have already fallen by the wayside. Adding new elements to your routine (whether it’s extra workouts at the gym or more home-cooked meals during the week) can add stress to your already busy life.

We know this is a common problem. Forbes even made a list of 5 New Year’s Resolutions you are likely to break (and five you’ll probably keep)!

That’s where ScheduleThing comes in. It’s a great tool to help you keep track of a busy schedule and make time for new, healthier habits. The online scheduling software creates a place to make appointments and reservations. ScheduleThing’s purpose is to post your calendar and availability online in order for clients or customers to schedule their own appointment time with you.

The best part is, you set the parameters! Whether you’re a babysitter, attorney, real estate agent, or rely on scheduling in any other way, our software can book all of your appointments, leaving more time to do the things you really want to. The best part is, it’s free to sign up! ScheduleThing can help make your resolutions happen this year.
