An Introduction to Appointment Remind Me
There is no question that a crippled economy causes people to spend less on all kinds of tangible items. What some may not realize is people are also inclined to cut back on service related purchases. As may be expected, this downward cycle only leads to more job losses, and fewer sales.
Today, if someone makes an appointment to see a doctor, lawyer, or accountant, they can easily change their mind at the last minute. Unfortunately, in many cases, these people may not even call to let you know they will not be coming. Aside from losing money on the visit, you will also lose a chance to give this spot to someone else that might need help. This is just one of many reasons why service providers will call to remind people of their appointments.
Client reminders are a NECESSITY
As with any other type of business, if you do not make contact with your customers on a regular basis, they may just forget all about you. In fact, if they do not show up for an appointment at your office, it may just mean they have decided to see a competitor instead.
When it comes right down to it, if you are not taking active steps to stay in contact with your customers, you truly aren't doing all you can to retain them. Needless to say, as the economy gets worse, you will also find that profits continue to plummet.
3 MOST effective ways of keeping in touch with your clients
Chances are, if you check your mail on any given day, you will always find circulars from local supermarkets and department stores. Oddly enough, many service providers do not make an effort to create sales offerings, let alone make some form of tangible contact with their customers.
At the very least, if you were able to get any given customer to make a follow up appointment, you should use the time before that date to make contact.
Today, there are 3 easy ways to achieve this goal.
For the most part, you will find that most people rely on cell phones far more than land lines. If you do not want to disturb them during the day, you can simply send a text message reminding them of their appointment. This is also sure to be appreciated by anyone that does not have an unlimited minutes subscription plan. At the very least, if they read the message, you will have achieved your goal.
It is fair to say that email is one of the best ways to remind people of appointments. Aside from being cheaper for your customers to receive, an email can make a good prompt to mark the date in a computerized calendar. As an added bonus, if the customer needs to change the appointment date, they may find it easier to respond to the email rather than remember to call the office at a better point in time.
Today, many service providers still rely on phone calls to contact customers. If you can get past the answering machine, then you will have an excellent opportunity to remind them of their appointments as well as discuss anything else that might be of importance. In fact, if you have customers that aren't scheduled to visit, you can easily use these calls to encourage them to visit you for one reason or another.
Client Reminders - Benefits
Even though staying in contact with your customers can be very important, it can also be a source of annoyance.
Consider a situation where you own a dental office, and notice that several of your patients are not coming in for yearly exams. Overall, you should not try to contact these people several times a year hoping that they will come in for some other reason.
In many cases, when you make contact too often, or at unexpected times, your customers may feel that you are just looking to make money on them. As may be expected, this can easily diminish trust instead of build it
Hiring regular staff can be PRICY and INEFFECTIVE
Chances are, you will always hear marketing advice that states people respond better when they know they are being contacted by a real person as opposed to a machine.
While this may work in certain situations, you will find that it can be fairly expensive to hire one or more people to make routine contact with all of your customers. In addition, you will also find that human error, personality flaws and other problems can easily cause you to lose customers instead of retain them.
Client reminders - Switch to AppointmentRemindMe
Once you realize that you need some way to maintain contact with customers, you will eventually find yourself asking if there is some kind of computer program to help you along.
While you may be able to cobble together email mailing lists and other resources on your own, they will never have the user friendliness and convenience of AppointmentRemindMe. As an added bonus, when you make use of this service, you can have peace of mind knowing that it was developed by experts that know how to entice your customers to make, and then keep their appointments.
How AppointmentRemindMe works
Basically, AppointmentRemindMe will take the place of anyone that might normally send emails or make calls manually. All you will need to do is make sure that your schedule is updated, and then let the automated software make contact at the appropriate times. Many service providers have seen as much as an 80% reduction in no-show appointments using this system.
That said, if you are not sure this system will work, you can still try it risk-free for 30 days with a money back guarantee. Once you see how much more money you will make when everyone shows up for their appointments, you are bound to be glad you gave this system a try.

We were initially very skeptical about using your service. My daughter was calling all our customers to remind them. We started using your service based on her recommendation and haven't looked back. It just seems to work better and just to let you know my daughter is way less stressed and happier.
