Thanks to Salonized and our Reserve with Google integration, your services can be booked directly and seamlessly on both Google Search and Google Maps. You can now show a “book now” button onto your Business Profile on Google. With this, you have another quick and convenient way for your customers to book your services.

All bookings and availability are automatically synchronized in real time with your Salonized account, so you always have a complete overview of all bookings and channels, avoiding double bookings.

Why Reserve with Google?

Online booking at beauty salons and hairdressers has been indispensable for years. We like to brainstorm along with you about your online presence and help you to be visible in the right places.

That's why we started a partnership with Reserve with Google to make that happen for you. The integration increases your visibility online and offers customers an easy booking experience.

People are using Google with a specific goal, for example, searching for the closest hairdresser. Google already provides you with a nice overview of company information, but often the customer has to go through several steps before the appointment is made.

Picking up the phone can be inconvenient for many people, so there is a chance that you’ll miss out on these customers. To make this process easier, Salonized and Reserve with Google now offer the possibility to schedule an appointment directly through your Business Profile on Google Search and Maps. This makes it even quicker to make an appointment and makes it easier to receive your bookings.

How it works

There are two ways customers can find you through Google: by searching directly on the name of your company or by searching on salons or treatments nearby.

Making an appointment through Google is just as easy for clients as using the booking widget on your own website. This is how it works:

  • The client is looking for a salon in the neighbourhood; with the Reserve with Google integration a book-now button appears next to your Business Profile.
  • The customer selects “Schedule”
  • Chooses the desired service, date and time. The available times will be shown based on your Salonized calendar
  • The customer fills in their contact info and confirms the booking
  • Both Reserve with Google and Salonized send a confirmation email to your customer, as well as a reminder
  • A review request will be sent to the customer after the appointment, from Google (this way you can collect reviews faster on Google) and from Salonized (if you have set this up)
  • Every new booking or modification to an existing booking is directly synchronized between Google and Salonized. No worries about double bookings!
