SMBs have been struggling to find ways to monetize their websites. Today, SiteKreator announces the seamless Integration of Appointment Scheduler, an online appointment scheduling application. This latest addition to the SiteKreator platform, enables SMBs to monetize their website traffic with convenient, online appointments.
Included with all paid subscriptions, the appointment scheduler is quick and easy to install, ties directly to the look & feel of their website and can generate revenue 24x7 by allowing website visitors to book appointments immediately. Appointment Scheduler is the first in a series of applications SiteKreator will launch this year, including email marketing, e-commerce and mobile applications that take the pain out of maintaining a business website and speed time-to-revenue.
SiteKreator’s Appointment Scheduler is super intuitive for the customer and the website owner. Unlike costly third-party solutions that involve manually copy-paste of complicated HTML code, and additional monthly fees of up to $30/month, SiteKreator’s appointment scheduler is integrated directly into the website creation and hosting tool. The application enables website owners to control all elements of the process directly from their website, including:
- opening days and hours (including annual holidays)
- types of services offered (including description, prices, etc.)
- staff members availability (days, hours and services provided per staff member)
Customers merely click on the customizable “book online now” button, select the service they want, the date and time they prefer, and confirm the appointment with their name and email address. The website owner can review and approve individual appointments, or have the system automatically approve them and send a confirmation directly to the customer via email or SMS.
"Scheduling appointments is the foundation of many small businesses," says Ivaylo Lenkov, founder and CEO of SiteKreator. “Up to now, the only options were clumsy, complicated add-ons. We’ve made our Appointment Scheduler application quick and easy to add, set up and use, so our SMB customers can rapidly convert website visitors into revenue-generating appointments.“
Founded in 2006, the SiteKreator platform powers more than 100,000 small business websites. It is the best source for customizable high-end design solutions, and the most cost effective way to build and maintain a business website. SiteKreator empowers small business by taking the pain out of doing online business.
