As a business owner, you want to focus on your business and taking care of your clients. But constantly updating your appointment calendar and sending out reminders can be tedious and time consuming. At the same time, you still need to limit appointment no shows and keep things running on time.

So how do you do this without adding more to your plate? That’s where we come in.

If you’re looking for appointment reminder software that’s affordable, easy to set up, easy to use, and reduces your no-shows, GoReminders is for you.

GoReminders appointment reminder software sends out reminders to clients via SMS & email. It’s easy to set up and easy to use. Once you have the reminders scheduled, the app will do the rest.

GoReminders: Automatic and Easy To Use

If ease of use is a key factor for your appointment reminder solution, you’ve come to the right place. With GoReminders, you can have appointment reminders set up in just three steps:

Step 1: Create your reminder template

GoReminders offers complete flexibility, allowing you to customize the appointment reminders your customers see. Simply go to the settings, look for the “Message Templates” heading, and click the orange “Create New” button to create a new template.

From there, you can give your message template a name, create an SMS and email version of each template, and customize every aspect of the template messaging. You can even customize your reminders for each customer using the included Template Tags. Insert these tags into your templates and let GoReminders fill in the relevant information from your appointment automatically. You can even create custom tags to include information unique to your business.

If you’d like to send several different reminders for the same appointment, you can set that up in the Message Sequences section (just below the Message Templates). Customer response options (including confirmation, rescheduling, or cancelation) are also available in the reminder settings.

Not sure what to write? Use one of our pre-written appointment reminder templates.

Step 2: Check the reminder schedule

In the reminder settings, you can easily customize the timing of when your reminder messages reach customers.

You can send appointment reminders anywhere from 30 days up to a few hours before the appointment. You can set follow up messages to be sent anytime after an appointment. Once you set up the message sequence, GoReminders will take care of the rest.

Step 3: Set up your first appointment

The final step of sending your first appointment reminder is to add an appointment to GoReminders. Simply fill in the customer’s name, what type of reminder (email, text, or both) you’d like them to receive, and the phone number and email address where they will receive the message. Then, just fill in the appointment time and length. The customer will automatically receive appointment reminders from the message template or sequence you set up.

That’s it! You’ve now set up your first appointment reminder.

If you’d like to get more advanced, you can offer customers the option to confirm or reschedule their appointment, or set up different reminders to be sent to the customer over time. All of this can be found in the reminder settings.

If you run into any trouble, contact our friendly customer support. We are glad to help you make the best use of all GoReminders has to offer.

Automate Your Appointment Reminders with Self-Serve Booking for Customers

If you’d like to offer your customers an easy way to book their own appointments, GoReminders offers an optional appointment booking feature.

Simply navigate to the Settings > Booking page and choose if you would like customers to book appointments directly or request an appointment for you to approve. You can customize the messaging and add a logo to the booking page, set your hours of availability, and much more.

Whenever customers book appointments using your new booking page, they’ll be automatically enrolled to receive appointment reminders. This way, you can focus on your business and not spend so much time dealing with no-shows!

I recently switched to GoReminders for my law firm and could not be happier with my decision. GoReminders is competitively priced, very easy to use, and customizable. GoReminders is also one of the few appointment reminder solutions that I could find which offers a free, fully functional phone app. Additionally, GoReminders provides excellent and easy to reach customer support. I highly recommend GoReminders to anyone looking for an affordable, feature packed appointment reminder system.

Of the 30 online schedulers I have used, GoReminders is the most efficient, easy to use and reliable. Your recurring appointment feature is top notch and saves my life.

I use this to keep my appointments and remind my customers for my grooming business. My customers love it and it saves me time!

One challenge for our tattoo shop was last-minute cancellations from clients who made an appointment but didn’t quite know what they wanted. This left valuable appointment slots empty for my in-demand studio and was causing us to lose money. Since implementing the GoReminders online scheduler tool as my tattoo shop app, we have been able to schedule text messages to remind clients about their appointments several days in advance, prompting them to make any final decisions about their tattoos. If a client needs to cancel, the empty slot then has time to be filled by another eager client.
