HoneyBook Launches Scheduling Tool to Help Freelancers Take Back Their Time

HoneyBook, which passed $2 billion in bookings on its platform, empowers service providers to book meetings two-times faster with new scheduling tool

San Francisco, CA, USA – WEBWIRE

HoneyBook, the leading business and financial management platform for creative entrepreneurs and freelancers, today released its scheduling tool, a new feature that makes scheduling meetings easier and faster for its members. 

Scheduling meetings is an important part of a service provider’s business process. In fact, HoneyBook found that small business owners who meet with their clients are 40 percent more likely to book them. But 45 percent of freelancers are spending two or more hours a week scheduling meetings. That’s the equivalent of $1,500 in time wasted each month that could be better spent elsewhere.  

HoneyBook developed its scheduling tool to help business owners save time by eliminating the extensive email correspondence typically required to schedule a meeting. Members pre-set their availability, share their scheduling link and let their clients pick the meeting time that works best for them. Correspondence that used to take three emails on average has been reduced to one.  

In doing so, the scheduling tool gives service providers back the time to do more of what they love – whether that’s working on their craft, nurturing their client relationships or spending time with family. 

“Scheduling meetings is time-consuming. It can take up to a week of back-and-forth to get a meeting on the calendar and this cumbersome process has cost me clients. Since using HoneyBook’s scheduling tool I’ve increased the number of client meetings I’ve scheduled by 30 percent and with less effort,” said photographer John Branch.  

The HoneyBook scheduling tool not only saves business owners time but it also empowers them to deliver a cohesive client experience. Highly customizable, a members’ scheduling link is reflective of their unique brand, which helps them to stand out and win more clients. 

With the addition of the new scheduling tool, HoneyBook members can now manage all aspects of their business easily from one place. From the moment an inquiry is received to when the final payment is sent, HoneyBook provides business owners with the tools they need to simplify and scale their business.  

“Our mission at HoneyBook is to help business owners focus their time on the things that matter most, like building relationships with their clients. By offering a scheduling solution that is fast and customizable to their brand, we’re helping business owners save time, elevate their client experience and, in doing so, grow their business,” said HoneyBook Chief Product Officer Naama Alon. 

For HoneyBook, which passed $2 billion in booking on their platform in January 2020, the new scheduling tool is the latest product launch to support the success of small business owners. This milestone comes a mere 15 months after HoneyBook reached $1 billion in bookings in September 2018, an achievement which took 5 years to reach. 

Often operating alone, a business owner’s time is precious and best spent honing their craft. To better understand the burden manual scheduling was having on freelancers’ businesses, HoneyBook surveyed over 250 members on its platform. They discovered that service providers spend more time scheduling meetings than they do at the gym, planning dates or reading up on 2020 political candidates. The HoneyBook scheduling tool is designed to give small business owners back the time to do more of these and other activities.
