Website widget

The Website widget is one of our Publishing options and is a great addition to your lead generation strategy.

The widget is a persistent call-to-action that allows your website visitors to schedule conveniently when browsing your website. It is a multi-channel engagement tool that, in addition to scheduling, also supports submission of email inquiries and allows you to prominently display your contact phone number:

  • Scheduling: Opens your Booking page or Master page in a themed lightbox (overlay pop-up) allowing your prospects and customers to easily schedule an appointment with your organization. ScheduleOnce is the only scheduling platform that allows you to customize the height of the scheduling pane, which can be fixed or responsive. When it is responsive, the height adapts to the length of your content. Learn more about advanced customization
  • Email: Allows your prospects and customers to submit a quick inquiry note. Upon submission, the Customer will receive a confirmation email and you will be sent the note.
  • Phone: Displays your organization's phone numbers allowing prospects and customers to  get in touch.
