Offering your service packages (i.e. memberships) through a scheduler software can do a lot for your business.
If you’re not offering your service packages through a scheduler, you are missing out on a lot of potential revenue, as we will delve into more below.
With that, here are 5 reasons why selling your service packages through a scheduler can help your bottom line.
1. You Can Sell Your Packages 24/7
Scheduler software keeps your business open 24/7. This is true whether clients are booking single appointments or service packages/memberships.
Consider, for example, that businesses who use scheduler software grow 50% faster than those without.
This is not only because it keeps your business open 24/7, but also because such software offers a variety of other features like text reminders to reduce no-shows, which end up saving your business a lot of money.
The truth is that your paper-based scheduler is costing you a lot of money.
The point in all of this is that offering service packages/memberships through your scheduler software means that whenever someone ends up on your website or on your booking platform, they can book a membership right then and there.
They don’t have to wait to call until the next day when, in all honesty, their excitement and motivation to sign up for a gym membership, for example, has worn off.
When potential customers are ready to book or buy, it’s important to capture them as soon as you possibly can.
That’s why a scheduler software is so important for your business.
2. Automates the Renewal Process (No Money Lost)
Businesses leave a lot of surprising amount of money on the table. This is particularly true of appointment-based businesses like salons who tend to end up losing a lot of money every single year due to no-shows.
This could be easily remedied by simply sending text reminders to remind clients of their upcoming appointment.
Consider the following example, which we have mentioned a few times on this blog before: a business that brings in 10K a month will lose 26K every single year due to no-shows.
Now, we get what you’re thinking: “But, what does that have to do with service packages/memberships, Yocale?”
Hear us out.
Businesses just like yours also leave a lot of money on the table due to a failure to implement things like automatic renewals, something that a scheduler software can easily take care for you so you don’t have to.
The point is that you don’t want to make the mistake of not renewing those memberships because you didn’t have a system in place to do it for you.
This is yet another reason why offering service packages through a scheduler can help your bottom line.
3. Cuts Costs In Many Other Ways
Here’s the thing: scheduler software is designed to both drive more business (by keeping your business open 24/7) and cut costs through things like automation (for example, text reminders for reducing no-shows and so on).
If you are selling your service packages through any other means, chances are that you are not taking advantage of the additional business and all of the cost savings that come from using a scheduler.
At Yocale, we have found that our schedule software reduces time spent on the phone by 90%. This is very inefficient and ends up costing your business a lot money.
Scheduler software also takes care of automatic billing and other aspects of your business so you don’t have to. This makes your business more efficient and saves you money in the process.
4. Generates Customer Loyalty
Remember: loyal customers are more profitable over time, spending 67% more than new ones. They also generate more referrals for your business as well.
It just so happens that scheduler software is designed to generate customer loyalty – at least the schedulers that have designated client management systems in place.
A scheduler software with a client management system allows you to generate customer loyalty by providing personalized customer service to your clients.
When you provide your clients with personalized customer service, you are rewarded monetarily. Customers become loyal and they will end up spending more over time.
5. It’s Simply More Efficient
Many businesses have entire businesses based on a membership system (this is particularly true of gyms, for example). The point, however, is that selling your memberships through your scheduler software makes the process much streamlined, more efficient and, above all, more simple.
Did you know that an 83% of businesses believe that organization is critical to their business? 63% believe that it’s even essential to their profitability.
Keep in mind that your scheduler also allows you to manage your service packages/memberships while on the go.

The Bottom Line
The bottom line in all of this is that offering your service packages through scheduler software is very beneficial for your bottom line. Some might even go so far as to say that a scheduler is critical for your business.
In short, your scheduler will allow you to sell your service packages 24/7, will automate the renewal process, cut costs for your business through things like text reminders, generate customer loyalty and is simply a more efficient process.
