If you are a small business owner and have missed an appointment, it is easy to get disheartened, but there is good news – you can fix the problem with a letter that you send to your customer on their next visit. Here is how it works:
Let’s say you are a regular customer of the salon. You have an appointment in the next few days and you wanted to call ahead of time to find out when the next appointment is, so you can prepare your hair for it. When you called, you thought that the person who answered the phone was going to be able to tell you the appointment time, but when you gave her your contact information, she was unable to tell you the appointment time. You find that you have missed your next appointment.
This is a general rule of thumb. If your next appointment has not been scheduled yet, it will be on the date in the future. In other words, if you are missing your next appointment, the best thing to do is to wait until the next time your next appointment is scheduled to come up.
One of the easiest ways to tell if your next appointment has already been scheduled is if you do not know what day it is. If you do not have a certain day in mind, try looking in your calendar or the phone book for a date and do some quick research about the day. It might be a week away or even a month away, but you are bound to find a date that you can use.
If you really miss your appointment and you have not moved yet, you may want to use the internet and find a new address. If you are not a resident of the state where the salon is located, you could use a local mailing address as well. Your next appointment could be at your new address and the whole procedure is free.
If you are in another state and you have not had a chance to change your address yet, you may want to think about it. Perhaps you will be able to contact them and tell them about your need to change your address. You never know when you may run into someone who could help you out in a way you could not have done before.
A missed appointment is not a big deal for most people, but it can really mess up your schedule. If you do not know that you have a missed appointment, then you will end up feeling rushed for time. Some people hate that feeling and will avoid going to the salon as much as possible if they cannot make appointments for the day that they are scheduled to go.
This may be hard to hear, but a missed appointment letter is a great way to make sure that you get back on track. It does not matter whether the next appointment is a week away or a month away, it is important to let the person know that you will be there and ready for your next appointment. You should also consider the times that you have missed before and try to add an additional appointment before your next scheduled appointment.
