You can add a Book Now call-to-action button to your business Facebook page so that when clients click/tap Book Now they go straight to your venue's online booking site.
First, you'll need to copy your venues unique online booking URL. This is the link which you will add to the Facebook Book Now button.
Locating your venue's unique online booking URL
Log into your Simple Members account and go to Online on the top blue menu bar.
Go to the Admin tab and expand the General Settings section.
Under BOOKING SITE URL & CODE you'll see your unique Online Booking URL is displayed. To copy this link, click the Copy URL button. The URL will be copied to your clipboard.
Adding Online Booking URL to Facebook Book Now button
Once you've copied your unique online booking URL to your clipboard, go to your Facebook business page.
Under your cover photo on the right, you'll have a blue button. If you haven't set it up yet, it will look like this.
If you've already set it up, then it might say something like Call Now, Contact Us, Send Message etc. Either way, click the blue button to Edit it. We're going to change it to a Book Now button.
Under Step 1 choose the Book with you option, choose Book Now and then click Next.
Under Step 2 click Link to Website.
The following pop up window will come up. You need to paste your online booking URL into the Enter a URL field. You're pasting the unique URL which you copied from Simple Members earlier.
Once you have pasted your URL, click Save.
When this next window comes up, click Finish.
(NOTE: Your URL will be different to the one displayed in the image below)
Now you will have a Book Now button on your business Facebook page.
Anytime a client clicks/taps Book Now on your Facebook page it will take them directly to your venue's online booking site, which will look like the example featured below.
Your client will then go ahead and make their online booking. You will be sent an online booking alert. Once you receive the alert, you'll have one hour to confirm the online booking.
