Google Business Profiles present a formidable solution to streamline the process of booking appointments or reservations, thereby mitigating the frustration of constantly responding to calls and messages. To enable this functionality, access the "Bookings" section on your dashboard after creating your business profile. Once there, opt for "Add a Booking Link," and pick your preferred type of booking provider, such as an online booking system or a booking form on your website. In the following article, we will furnish you with a step-by-step tutorial on how to arrange appointments or acquire reservations using Google Business Profiles.
Step-by-Step Guide to use Google Business Profile to schedule appointments or take reservations?
Step 1: First, make sure you have a Google My Business account. If you don't have one, create one by visiting https://www.google.com/business and clicking on the ‘Sign in’ button.
Step 2: Once you are logged in, go to the ‘Bookings’ icon on the homepage. This is where you can schedule your booking with your provider.
Step 3: A pop-up will appear. Click the ‘Add a link’ button where you can link your online booking tools.
Step 4: Later, You'll need to enter a booking provider link. If you already use a booking provider, create a booking URL and paste it here. If you don't use a booking provider, you'll need to create a new third-party booking provider.
Note: Google My Business no longer provides a list of booking providers here.
Step 5: Finally, click "Save" to add the booking button to your Google Business Profile. The button will appear on your profile, and customers will be able to use it to schedule appointments or make reservations.
That's it! Now you're all set up to schedule appointments or take reservations from your Google Business Profile. Just make sure to keep your booking provider account up to date and check it regularly for new bookings.
