So, what about my $50,000? Can I really make this much by just switching to online appointment scheduling? Yes! Let’s say you’re a massage therapist and charge $75 for an hour of full body massage. You work five days a week, and can take a maximum of 8 appointments per day. This would give you $12,000 a month.
The problem is that a lot of massage therapists are only booked at 60% of their maximum capacity. And with clients forgetting appointments, double bookings and last minute cancellations, you’d lose another 10% of your income, which lands you at $6,000 a month. Now with your new amazing online appointment software, and excellent marketing strategy, you can reach as high as 90% of your full capacity or even higher. This would give you an income of $10,800 per month. That’s $4,800 extra each month. That’s more than $50,000 a year!
If money isn’t everything for you, you’d be happy to know that $4,800 each month equals to 64 hours each month. That’s two full days per week! How about working just 3 days a week and make as much money as you do now? Now that’s a healthy lifestyle!
What’s most important to you? Time or money? With online appointment scheduling you’ll get more of both.
