  2. Give customers more control
  3. Set clear booking policies and procedures 
  4. Keep track of bookings and payments
  5. Provide different payment methods
  6. Utilize online calendars and scheduling tools 

1.Create Schedule:

streamlining your daily tasks with your daily schedule calendar is the most important thing for effective schedule management

You’d have come across many instances where people aren’t aware of open bookings which increases the chances of double bookings. If two people book the same class, it messes with the trustworthiness of your business. So instead of trying to resolve conflicts later let’s choose to proactively avoid them altogether. 

The first step towards online class management is simply framing a schedule that is very clear and consistent. Find out the days that work well for you and create slots for classes accordingly. 

However, framing a schedule is rather easy. The real challenge comes in while communicating that with your clients! 

Staying in touch with your clients and keeping them in the communication loop is necessary. By setting up reminders and automated emails, you can ensure that your clients never miss out on any updates, whether it's a newly opened class or a rescheduled session. Also by enabling waitlists, you give your clients the opportunity to reduce their wait times and snag a spot in a class as soon as it opens up. It's all about creating a seamless schedule and communicating it effectively to your clients.

2.Give Customers More Control:

When it comes to running an online business, our ultimate goal is to create a user-friendly experience that makes bookings a breeze. And when we think about how to achieve that, the magic word is none other than "convenience"!

Helping clients to schedule classes with an easy intuitive website which assists them easily with payments, booking and payment reminders, flexible cancellations and rescheduling options and waitlists etc. Make sure to not make your clients feel that booking classes are like lifting heavy weights. Provide the maximum convenience you can throughout the booking flow or initial customer journey. It will ultimately help reduces the number of drop-offs even before booking a class!  

So, your clients pay for your classes all they expect is to have a seamless experience. With that in mind, you are responsible for giving your clients the best possible booking experience you could. It’s best to seek a class scheduling platform like Omnify, which can save up the time you spend with all these and handle your clients for you. 

Give clients more control over their bookings with client portals. Your clients manage their own past and upcoming bookings, payment history and view active subscriptions all in one place. So, sit back and relax while Omnify handles it all behind the scenes.  

3.Set Clear Booking Policies And Procedures:

avoid last minute hassles by providing relevant information about your business and class schedule and stay organized, productive and avoid conflicts

When you start a business, it’s necessary that you disclose all your business policies with your clients and be better safe than sorry, isn't it? 

Be clear to stay uncompromised with business policies. This can be easily taken care of by Online waivers. Technology has made online business owners a favour with these as they function as e-signatures for your clients to accept your business policies and procedures before they even make a booking!

4.Keep Track of Bookings and Payments:

When a lot of people start booking your classes, another time-consuming task to handle is keeping track of all those bookings, countless check-ins and keeping yourself continuously busy with client and class updates, with confirmation messages and what not. This is also when double bookings and no-shows can happen. If you aren’t in sync with your customer’s booking frequency the chances of building a good customer experience are very slim. 

Also sending out payment reminders for fee due dates increases the chances of prompt payments. Setting up payment reminders via emails and sms is very crucial to stay in touch with your clients and to avoid payment delays. 

So, keep up a personal touch with your clients via automated emails and reminders. You can give a warm welcome to new clients and keep communication flowing by sending payment and booking reminders to your existing clients. Just make sure that no one misses a beat. 

5.Provide Different Payment Methods:

As a business, the main goal is to keep that cash flowing in, right? Well, to make that happen smoothly, it's crucial to offer your clients different ways to pay. This is one of the crucial aspects to consider while organizing your online classes. It’s better to offer all types of payment options rather than sticking to one or two. 

By offering multiple payment methods, you give your clients the convenience of choosing whichever option works best for them be it credit cards, payment gateways and other modes of online payments. Having choices makes the payment process a breeze for everyone involved. And hey, happy clients mean recurring revenue, which is the backbone of your business after all!

So, as you're setting up your class schedules, remember to keep those payment options flexible and give your clients the freedom to pay however they want.
