How to Set Up Facebook Appointments on your Business Page

by Sam Osbourne

Facebook isn’t just for posting mouth-watering photos of your tofu and bean salad. Many businesses don’t realize that they can actually take advantage of Facebook appointments to drive traffic directly to their stores. Add a Book Now button to your Facebook Business Page and watch your bookings rise.

What are Facebook appointments?

With Facebook’s appointment scheduling feature, businesses can enable customers to book appointments directly from your Facebook page or Facebook adverts.

To do this, you simply need to add a Book Now button to your Facebook page. Facebook displays the button directly below your profile cover image – making it easy for your customers to spot.

The dark blue Book Now button appears directly beneath your cover photo.

 

It’s worth noting that you can only add Facebook appointments to your business page–it isn’t possible to do the same for your personal profile.

 

How to set up appointments on your Facebook page

The good news is that it’s pretty easy to add a Book Now button to your Facebook Business page. The bad news is that this feature isn’t available to everyone.

 

What do you need?

1. A Facebook business page

In order to offer appointment scheduling via Facebook, you need to have a Facebook Business page. It’s not currently possible to use Facebook’s booking feature on your personal account.

 

2. An account with a Facebook Booking partner

Secondly, you also need to be with a SaaS provider like Qudini that partners with Facebook before can offer appointments through the Book Now button.
