New Facebook Feature!

There is something strange in the neighborhood! No…there isn’t a new ghostly add-on for Facebook. But this new feature is pretty cool.

Let’s talk about that lovely little call to action button located on your Facebook Business page. Previously, our options were learn more, book now, message and some other options. Those options are all still there, so you don’t need to panic.

However, the new feature for client scheduling on Facebook can be found under that Book Now button. I took some handy screenshots to walk you through what I am talking about.

Step 1:

Go to your Facebook Business Page and click on the blue call to action button.

Wait there’s more!

But that isn’t all folks!!! Drum roll please!! This is probably the most exciting part and I think you will agree.

INSTAGRAM!!!

If you have your Instagram account set up as a business account and you have it connected to your Facebook Business page, you will love this. You can add this button to your Instagram!!

You can now have clients schedule appointments with you from your Instagram profile.

If you enable this option is puts a button on your Instagram profile. This makes it even more simple for clients to schedule appointments and set up discovery calls with you!

I fully expect there to be glitches with this system but I am willing to give it a try and if it doesn’t work out, I will go back to my non-Facebook option for client scheduling.
