Question for all plumbing business owners: how can online booking help your plumbing company? What is the benefit of choosing online booking when you are so used to having phone appointments with customers? Here are the benefits of online booking and how it can generate leads for your plumbing business even in your sleep.

Not everybody has a plumbing emergency and needs to speak to a plumber urgently. Some homeowners might just happen to come across your plumbing website in the middle of the night. Do you want to get a phone call for a drippy faucet on a Saturday midnight? Probably not.

These type of non-urgent plumbing calls can be scheduled throughout the week and you do not need manpower to make that happen. A good online booking software like Housecall Pro can help you schedule more plumbing leads without you having to answer the phone.

Other advantages of online booking include:

  • Giving customers the freedom to see your availability and book you right away. Missed calls tend to turn into lost leads, so it is important to allow customers to book you and you can increase service jobs in return.

  • Time efficient. Online booking can help your plumbing business manage time more efficiently because you do not need to be by your phone 24/7 and customers can still book your service.

  • Building customer relationships. More customers prefer choosing businesses and booking online today than ever before. Online booking gives the customer the convenience and level of professionalism that they look for in a service business.

Generate plumbing leads in your sleep. That is the power of online booking.

Learn how Housecall Pro’s online booking feature can save you time and earn you more jobs booked even when you are not there to pick up the phone.
