02 Mar Apps I Use: Acuity Scheduling
Acuity Scheduling promises no more hassle for you or your clients. With this app your clients can quickly and easily schedule appointments with you, without having to dance around availability between the two of you. But that’s just the beginning of what Acuity has to offer!
At Your Business, Your Brand, Creatively and Detroit Ink Publishing, we work with clients and staff all around the United States, and the world! Acuity makes it easy for us to communicate and schedule no matter where we or our clients are. This app is particularly helpful when we are scheduling our podcast, YB2C Live!
With Acuity Scheduling, you’ve got a couple options when it comes to price and plan.
There are four main plans:
Freebie: Solo $0/month
Emerging Entrepreneur: 1 calendar $15/month
Growing Business: 6 calendars $25/month
Powerhouse Player: 36 calendars $50/month
There are also opportunities to expand these plans if need be.
What plan you choose may truly depend on what kind of business you run and your goals for that business.
The Freebie program offers clients self scheduling and lets you offer unlimited services and appointments. This plan is relatively minimalistic, perhaps for beginner entrepreneurs.
The Emerging Entrepreneur program offers everything the Freebie does, in addition to reminder emails, and automatic time zone conversion for your clients.
In addition to what’s listed above, when you purchase the Growing Business program, you’ll get text message reminders, as well as the opportunity to sell appointment packages, gift certificates, subscriptions, memberships, and payment plans.
With the largest plan, that is the Powerhouse Player, you will also be able to display multiple time zones for the ranging locations that you and your staff may work from.
Acuity also offers a number of customizable options for its paid plans that make it possible to alter Acuity to fit you and your business.
The app also makes it easy to keep track of clients and their contact information with its “Client List,” which you can import and export information to and from at any time.
Acuity can be cancelled at any time without penalty.
While it may be tempting to just go for the Freebie program, there are many benefits to the paid programs.
All of the paid programs make it possible to:
Sync exterior programs with Acuity; such as Outlook, iCloud, Google Calendar, Quickbooks, MailChimp, and many more. As well as accept and deposit with PayPal, Square, Stripe, Braintree, and Authorize.net.
Acuity does have an affiliate program! So if you share your link with friends, family, acquaintances, or that person sitting one table over from you at a coffee shop, you can get money back. If you click HERE, you can use OUR affiliation link!
