Spring Has Sprung

March 21st was the official first day of spring– even though it may still be snowy and cold where you are. There are a lot of great things about spring: flowers, warmer weather, and March Madness, to name a few. Something that’s not so fun about the coming of spring, though, is spring cleaning.

ImageHere’s the deal: no one likes all the cleaning out and sprucing up that comes with spring each year. Somehow the stuff in our homes seems to magically multiply over the winter and there’s so much to do! 

As a ScheduleThing customer though, there are some really easy ways to fix up your booking site! The best thing is, you won’t ever have to touch a mop or broom. Here are a few suggestions of ways to get your site ready for the new season:

  • Update your reservation types.
  • Sync your site to your favorite calendar software.
  • Upgrade your account to accommodate for new growth.
  • Enable email notifications.

You can make all of these easy changes and updates just by logging in to your ScheduleThing account. And if you don’t have one yet, what better time than spring to start fresh and sign up?

Spring cleaning doesn’t have to just mean vacuuming or de-cluttering. Revamp your ScheduleThing booking site and get ready for the new season now!

Online Organization vs. Paper & Pencil Organization

 

Why should anyone create a website in order to organize their appointments?

Easy answer, because online organization is faster, more efficient and easier to navigate compared to classic pencil and paper ways to organize.

Just think, if you were to only make reservations and appointments over the phone then the time you could have spent doing more important tasks was spent talking to customers and answering questions that a website easily could have done for you.

Online scheduling is the solution for anyone in a profession that thrives on maintaining a consistent customer base.

When first upgrading from paper and pencil scheduling you must rememberthree important things:

1. Embrace your personality!!

– When creating an online presence you must always embrace who you are and what you are all about. Never disguise yourself! If you are a photographer, make your site creative and fun to look at. If you are a doctor, make your profile professional and mature.

2. Commit

– Once you develop a ScheduleThing site do not forget about it! Commit to your new organization plan and utilize the website to its fullest potential.

3. Use your resources

-If you are new to the online world and are clueless in how to approach the situation do not be afraid to get help. First, check out the ScheduleThing website and watch the introductory video, read the guidelines and look through example sites. Then, ask a colleague or friend who is sufficient in “internet language.”

Organization, What is the Point?

What is the point of being organized? Have you ever had someone ask you this question or overhead people talking about organization and why it is said everyone should embody organizational characteristics and skills.

Well, the answer is simple. EVERYONE can benefit from obtaining a few organizational skills. The first step towards becoming an organized individual is to understand why organization can be essential in your daily life. Here are the top 5 reasons to be organized:

1. Reduces Stress: no need to worry about not making a deadline or forgetting about an appointment, once organization is implemented into your life say goodbye to worries!

2. Saves Time: never again will you need to waste precious time or have to reschedule anything due to your lack of organization.

3. Manages Your Workload: organizational tools such as calendars, lists, online scheduling sites, agendas/planners and reminders are great ways manage anyone’s hectic work duties and tasks.

4. Prioritizes Your Schedule: If you find it difficult to prioritize and manage your time well, then becoming organized is the best solution. When organization is applied into daily life, tasks are clearly defined. Time does not wait for anyone or anything, so managing the time you do have is important.

5. Less Forgetful: When something is not written down it is very common to forget what you were supposed to do. Because of this forgetfulness that everyone is guilty of having happen to them, organizing and writing down tasks/deadlines/meetings and etc.. is extremely important.
