First off, if you're wondering how to use Ignite to skip checkout pages and send prospects straight to a calendar...
There are two ways to let people know their appointment is *over the phone or Zoom* instead of in-person!
Method 1: Tried and True
Simply call & text each new appointment and let them know! You can even copy/paste this message! (But make sure you update it with your correct info!)
Hey FIRSTNAME! David here from Spark Studios! So excited to meet you!!
Quick heads up: The first meeting is just a quick "get to know you" phone call. I want to learn all about you and your goals to make sure we're the right folks to help you achieve them.
Speaking of which -- how old is your kiddo? **
** Replace this with an adult-focused question for adults, like, "Speaking of which -- have you ever trained martial arts before?"
Method 2: Let's Add Some Automation
The best way to automate some of this is by sending new appointments to a THANK YOU PAGE that explains it's a phone call or Zoom!
Then, you set your thank you page right here in your calendar's settings
On the left-hand menu, go to Settings > Calendar
Click on the calendar you'd like to edit, then, paste your thank you page URL right here:
"I don't have a thank you page!"
I've got you covered! You can use mine!
Done-for-you PHONE call thank you page: https://spblive.net/thank-you-for-booking/
Done-for-you ZOOM call thank you page: https://spblive.net/thank-you-zoom/
But! You might want to add Facebook or Google tracking codes! So... Here's how to create your own in 4 minutes!
Next! You can customize reminders to remind people that it's a Phone/Zoom call and not in-person by adding messages here:
What would I do? Both!
I think combined, Methods 1 & 2 are a force to reckon with.
