Businesses know that modern consumers spend hours on social media and often undertake much of their research and opinion-forming about products and services found within.
As a result, companies spend time and money being active in social media, creating all type of content to engage their audiences.
However, if your business depends on bookings, to make the most of your social media profiles, there’s no better way than integrate online booking directly on FB and Instagram. TIMIFY, has created the Reserve with Meta app so you can easily start getting bookings through the Meta family of apps.
How a TIMIFY-Meta integration benefits your business
Activating the Reserve with Meta app, will give greater visibility to your business bookable services and help their accessibility, creating a lucrative new channel for receiving bookings.
The huge potential is not just around this seamless way to book your services, but also in building and optimising your social media activity to engage and inspire your customers and leads into a long-term relationship.
How Customer bookings from Facebook and Instagram works
Once the integration is set up, you can add the Online Booking Button for your services to the following locations:
1. Your Facebook business profile page
Customers or leads landing on your Facebook Business profile page see online booking alongside your business details, contact information and service listings.
2. A Featured Services Card, which lists your top services alongside a booking button
Showcase your chosen services, alongside the ability to book instantly, in a component which can be placed across multiple pages on your Facebook account.
3. Your Instagram profile page, just under the business information section
Any customer or client landing on your Instagram profile page is presented with all the essential information, contact details, services and now, a booking button.
4. Individual Facebook posts
Every time you make a post (or schedule a future post) about a service or event, include the booking button directly in the post. Any customers inspired by the post have the quickest and easiest way to make a booking on impulse.
Essentially this means that, wherever and whenever a potential customer is interacting with your business via Facebook or Instagram, creating a new booking is just a few clicks away.
Bookings automatically added to your calendar
Any online bookings received through the Meta integration will instantly be synced to your TIMIFY calendar, avoiding any booking clashes from other booking touch-points across your business, while automatically reserving staff, rooms and resources where required, according to your TIMIFY set up.
Track social media performance
Another benefit of this integration is that you can track the performance of your social media campaigns through the TIMIFY Statistic Dashboard.
These crucial insights will help plan future strategies around posts or campaigns to optimise performance.
To activate Facebook tracking, you will need to adjust the set-up in your TIMIFY calendar. Read this article for step-by-step instructions on how to track conversions from Facebook.
