Online Appointment Scheduling is one of the best ways to connect with prospects and ending the Calling, Chasing, and Waiting game we all find ourselves playing. Adding a”Click-To-Schedule” button to your Facebook page is a great way to engage your leads who are interested right now through social media! Here is how you can add a “Click-To-Schedule” button to your Facebook page.
Before continuing you will have already setup or have:
- A Facebook Page you are an Administrator of (Kind of Obvious)
- A TimeTrade Account
- A Recurring Activity & Activity Link
First, we need to install custom pages to your Facebook page. We used WooBox custom tabs which are free. Click here to install Woobox tabs. From this page you will see a big button that says “Install Custom Tabs.” CLICK IT! It will then ask you which page you want to add the custom tabs to. Select the page you want to add the Click-To-Schedule Button on.
Once it’s installed you will be brought back to your Facebook page. You will now see a new tab in your page titled “Welcome” with spotlights. If you have a lot of tabs you may need to expand to see the new tab. Click it and you will be able to select Settings of the new tab.
Next you have a lot of options to edit on the page. The main options you are going to want to change are:
- Tab Image
- Page Source (Set to HTML)
- Tab Name
First set the tab image. If you would like, you can use our custom “Click-To-Schedule” button by right clicking and saving the image to your computer.
Next you want to embed your calendar. Get your activity link by logging into TimeTrade and selecting the activity you want to share. You will then get the option to copy the link for that activity.
Replace the source URL (eg. https://www.timetrade.com/book/xxxxx) with your activity link
<iframe src=https://www.timetrade.com/book/XXXXX width=”850″ height=”600″ frameborder=”0″>
Please note, you many need to manually type this out for it to render correctly on your page
Now just set your Page Title to what you would like it to be and once you save it you can review.
One last step. If your new custom tab isn’t listed in the top 4 tabs you can move it up there. Select to edit the tabs on your page and hover over the Click-To-Schedule tab you just created. You should see an icon of a pencil show to edit it. Form that menu you can replace any other tab position with this one.
Now you are done! You should now see your new custom tab with the image you had set. This will now click through to your online calendar where people can book with you right from Facebook.
