Sarah got online and started tinkering with various services and pages to add to make the booking process easier. Here's a little walk-through of what we've done to make booking easier for us, and YOU!
If you book with us, here are the steps you follow:
Step 1: Contract
Our contract is now hosted on our website! We link you to it so you can read it through. If you agree to the terms laid out, you proceed to step 2!
Step 2: Booking Form
We used to send you the long list of fields to fill out and tell you to copy-paste in a new email, fill it out, and send it back. Our new online booking form is super easy to fill out, and also hosted on our site. We'll provide you with a link, and you fill it out just like any other web form. Here's a screen shot so you can see what part of it looks like. Your completed form will be emailed directly to us from our site!
Step 3: Pay Deposit
You must pay a $20 deposit if you are booking more than 7 days in advance. We accept deposits through PayPal, a very trustworthy and easy online service. We used to go to PayPal ourselves and email you an invoice through them. Now we have a special page on our site where you can click "buy now" and be taken right to a deposit payment. PayPal emails us a confirmation!
Step 4: We Confirm!
Once we have received your booking form and deposit, we will email you with a confirmation, including your remaining balance and any other applicable information.
We're very proud of how we've made our site do so much work for us, and how it's made the process easier for our clients as well as us. So far, it's been a great success with our recent bookings.
Let us know if you use this new process, and how it has or hasn't worked for you. We'd love some feedback so we can continue to make improvements. Also--we're in the process of making a new example book! Exciting and fun new designs are coming your way.
Until next time,
