The Online Booking System Has Arrived!
We’ve been working on an online class-booking system for a long time and it’s finally here!
In partnership with the brilliant and such hard-working James Barnett at NE Digital Marketing, we’ve found a booking solution that works for the various classes that Perfectly Pilates runs in the Hexham and Houghton-le-Spring areas. It wasn’t as straightforward as we hoped – few things ever are! But we’ve been working on it and have a system now that we’re happy with.
WHY WE HAVE CHOSEN TO LAUNCH ONLINE BOOKING
We’ve opted for an online solution because over the last 12 months, we’ve experienced the full range of fitness class issues from oversubscribed classes to only having one or two people turning up. So, the booking system allows me to manage this better by seeing in advance how many people are booked into each class.
I’ll be limiting the class sizes as it’s neither safe nor enjoyable to practice Pilates in a crammed room, and when the class is fully booked I can be fair and transparent about it and create waiting lists if we have to. On the flipside, I can see when a class has too few people booked in and I can send out reminders to other people or cancel if occasionally it’s not going to be viable to run a class. Plus, I will know who to contact should we ever need to cancel suddenly due to bad weather, for example.
