Easily Connect Google Calendar to A Facebook Page To Give Yourself More Freedom.
It may sound harsh, however, the busier you get, the more valuable your time becomes and without an application like this, managing all of your appointments becomes difficult, however if you connect your google calendar to facebook page your life can become a lot simpler.
When you connect google calendar with your facebook page, you can block out times you are unavailable and only show the times you want people to be able to book in to speak to you and you can even allocate how long each appointment can go for.
Today on Rise Social Media, let’s walk you through how to connect your google calendar to your Facebook page.
Another benefit of adding your google calendar to your facebook page
Connecting your Google Calendar to a facebook page happens when you setup Facebook Appointments.
Your Appointments receive a reminder through facebook messenger that they have an appointment with you. This makes it less likely for them to forget their appointment.
Imagine having a higher percentage of appointments actually showing up and less time being wasted. This may seem like a small thing, however it’s actually huge. The real cost of lost or forgotten appointments is huge. It’s why professionals like doctors, dentists, hair dressers etc send reminder text messages.
Facebook takes care of that for you. You just have to use their calendar and it’s totally free.

If you’ve turned on Show Available Appointments in your Page’s appointment settings, people can see your business’s availability and book an appointment with you automatically from your Page.

I use this tool all the time now. I don’t have to fumble around trying to find a time that works for me and them because my available times are displayed automatically and they can choose one that works for them. If I need to block out a time, I just go to my google calendar and block out that time which automatically blocks out the time on my facebook page.
Go ahead and connect google calendar to a facebook page now, you will love the results when you start sending your contacts there to make an appointment.
