Clients today are conditioned to expect convenience and instant service — that’s why online booking is a must. Allowing clients to schedule their own appointments 24/7 not only saves you time, it gives clients that VIP experience they’re looking for.
But keeping track of every booking, cancellation, and rescheduling is difficult. When you have a client in the chair, it’s hard to give them your full attention when you have to dig through your messages and emails just to keep track of all the updates to your schedule.
That’s why we’re excited to announce one of our biggest launches yet: a brand new notifications feed to help you stay organized, stay focused, and get more done.
Now, all your most important business updates live in one easy to access place.
Let’s be real, most stylists don’t even have time to eat lunch during the day — how are they supposed to find time to constantly dig up things like client messages and cancellations? The notifications feed brings all that important information to you. With instant access to important updates, you can make the most out of your schedule and stay connected with clients.
When there’s an update in your feed, you’ll see a little red bubble over what is now called the Home tab.
- You’ll be notified when clients book, cancel and reschedule so you can fill last minute openings and stay on top of changes to your schedule.
- You’ll be notified when clients message you (so you don’t leave anyone hanging). And, if you tap on the notification in your feed, you can quickly and easily send a response.
- You’ll also get real-time notifications when clients leave reviews so you can keep an eye on who your advocates are. Happy clients are the best marketing and reaching out to thank clients who leave positive reviews is good for business — responding quickly shows them you care.
- Over time, we’ll add more notifications to your feed, including a notification when your payment is on its way (hang tight for this one).
StyleSeat has always been here to help you stay organized and improve the way you run your business — now, we’re kicking it up a notch. With a better notifications system, you’ll have all the information you need, when you need it. You can check your notifications as they come in, or if you prefer to wait until the end of the day, you’ll have a convenient list of updates to run through and get you up to speed.
You can find your new notifications feed in the Home tab (formally known as the Daily tab).
