A great way to take your eyelash business or spa to the next level is to offer your clients online booking. This offers great advantages for you and your clients. Clients will love being able to easily book their next appointment from their phone or laptop whenever it’s most convenient, even when your business is closed. You will spend much less time on the phone with clients, playing annoying games of phone tag, or emailing back and forth just to lock down a time for that client to come in. You can instead spend that time with clients, or simply have more free time for yourself.
