Mini-website

Timely offers all users a free mini-website. It is called a mini-website because it is a simple, out-of-the box solution for businesses without websites. 

Content for the website is added automatically as you set your Timely account up. 

For example, as you add business details, location hours, staff information, services, etc. the mini-website will grab and present this information in a simple yet stylish website.

Booking links

If you're after more simple links (rather than buttons) for online bookings, these are found by heading to Setup > Booking buttons and selecting the Book now link option.

Tip: These are perfect for including in MailChimp email campaigns, or in your email signature!

Facebook app

Timely provides an app to be used with Facebook business pages which means your customers can book in straight from your Facebook page! Cool eh!?
