3 Seasonal Activities That Can Benefit From Online Booking

If you missed last week’s post which focused on fall photography, you’re still in for a treat this week. Running a business that really booms in the fall? Do you allow guests to participate in crafts or exciting activities? If so, today’s post is just for you.

With the great number of fall festivities that take place at this great time of year, today we’re going to look at how online scheduling can be used for 3 seasonal activities to help keep guests coming year after year.

Who doesn’t get excited when they hear about taking a tour of some place they’ve never seen, but it looks really interesting? If your business runs hay rides for the kids, offers group tours, or a challenging corn maze, you can easily offer online sign-up through a web scheduler on your website. Let us show you:

For guests who want to view amazing landscapes from an entirely different level, hot air balloon rides are a great fall activity whether for groups or even couples. If your team shares hot air balloons but rotate schedules, you can easily set up a resource which allows members of your team to see who is operating certain balloons for rides and whether or not it is available. Here’s how you could make a hot air balloon a shared resource:

1. Go to "Settings" > "Services & Classes"

2. Click on the "Resource" tab

3. Fill in your resource details and click the "Save" button

3. Skydiving

Daring guests who enjoy the thrill of viewing earth’s beautiful landscape but from amazing heights would find skydiving a unique fall experience. It’s a wowing experience to view from the ground, but if you have guests who want to participate in your services whether that’s training before the skydiving, flying with a pilot, or sky diving themselves can enjoy the ease of online scheduling instead of calling to check when there’s an opening or visiting your website for updates. Setting up payments for this activity or any of your other services can be a cinch with our scheduling system. Check out our awesome post on setting up your account to accept payments.

And those are 3 seasonal activities that we believe could see more growth with the help of online scheduling. Is your business looking to get started with online booking? Try out our Starter, Professional, or Business Plan free for 30 days. For now, happy booking!
