We are in the process of working toward a direct integration with Facebook to be listed as a booking app. In the meantime, the most effective way to take bookings from Facebook is by adding a Contact Us button, sharing your booking tools in your About section and linking in posts.
1. Adding a button
The CTA (call-to-action) button is displayed to customers on browsers and on the Facebook mobile app. If you don’t yet have a Facebook business account, you can set one up by clicking “create” on the left hand menu in Facebook.
Once you have your Facebook business account ready:
Go to your main business page and click + Add button
Choose Contact Us as your button
Paste the URL which you want your customers to be directed to upon clicking*
*The URL you paste could be:
Your business website and preferably the landing page where your booking links are shown
Your microsite URL which you'll find in your microsite settings
Your booking widget which you'll find in your widget section in Embed mode, under Get embed code
2. Share your booking tools in the About section
Go the About section of your Facebook business page
Click the pencil icon to edit the website link to your website booking page (if you wish)
Click the pencil icon to edit the More Info section and paste your booking link there
3. How to take bookings from posts
When creating a post on Facebook, make sure to include a link to your booking site and an eye catching image.
Top tip: having 'like & share' competitions with your followers helps your post and business reach even further.
You can also use paid Facebook Ads to further promote your post to a targeted audience and track its progress. We recommend ensuring your ad has a Book Now button directing customers to your booking page.
