Use Twitter with YouBookIn to promote your business

Did you know that you can add a YouBookIn promotional link to a tweet.
If you have a special offer or new service why not tweet your friends and tell them about it and include a link to the offer.

How do you do that?

Under the 'Promote' tab in 'My Account' we provide links to your services and staff as well as to the business. When you set up a new staff diary or service the 'Promote' page is automatically updated with a new promotional link for that person or service.

To insert a promotional link in a tweet simply copy and paste the link into the tweet. Twitter may auto shorten the URL , depending on your set-up, but the link will still work. Your client clicks on the link and will be taken straight to the booking page.

Whenever you are promoting a service on-line always include a promotional link to the offer because if your client likes the offer you want them to be able to immediately before they forget.

There is no extra charge for using promotional links, you can use them as often as you want, on your website, in emails, in tweets or on Facebook.

Don't have YouBookIn yet? We offer a free trial of our online scheduler at where you can try it out for yourself.

YouBookIn is not just an administrative tool Use it to grow your business.

Safe and Secure Appointments

If you look at the URL when you are using YouBookIn you will notice that the address starts with https not http like most websites. The extra S means that it is a secure site.

Https encrypts and decrypts user requests as well as the pages that are returned by the web server. The use of https protects against what is known as eavesdropping and man in the middle attacks.

This system was designed by Netscape communications Corporation to provide authentication and encripted communication and is widely used on the World Wide Web for security-sensitive communications such as banking.

Whether you are a healthcare professional or run a nail bar the security and privicy of your data is our main concern, that is why we designed YouBookIn around https rather than take the easy solution and use unsecured http.

Note: you do not need to type in https when logging in to YouBookIn you will automatically be redirected to our secure server.
