Scheduling Shouldn’t Be a Pain in the Ass
And you shouldn’t spend so much time and energy on it, either.
you need to automate your scheduling.
If you run a client-based business online, chances are, you spend a good chunk of time meeting with your clients. This almost always means you spend a significant amount of time scheduling those meetings.
Scheduling is a PAIN!
There are all the emails back and forth to find a day that works, converting time zones, creating a Zoom link, and remembering to send a reminder the day before. And heaven forbid anyone needs to reschedule–then you have to repeat the whole thing over again.
Multiply that by multiple clients or additional steps like invoicing or collecting pre-call questionnaires, and you have a time-consuming nightmare.
And what’s worse? You can’t scale like that!
What if you had an automated system that did all of that for you?
Like a 24/7 assistant that booked clients in, gathered information and payments, helped them prepare for your appointment, and reminded them to show up?
How much time and brain space would that free up for you?
More importantly, what could you do with all of that reclaimed time and energy?
😍 Maybe you could add more classes (or even more instructors).
😍 Maybe you could trade admin time for more marketing efforts.
😍 Maybe you could spend less time in your email and more time helping clients in a way that lights you up.
What if instead of heaving headache-inducing scheduling conversations you could…
🙌 Host classes and workshops that fill up while you sleep?
🙌 Schedule discovery calls, complete with qualifying questionnaires, so all you have to do is show up?
🙌 Book paid consultations and strategy sessions without ever chasing down a past-due invoice?
Having an automated scheduling system really is like having your very own 24/7 virtual assistant.
“But I’m not tech-savvy and this sounds hard.”
I get that. For a lot of people, the idea of setting up and learning their way around a new system sounds like more work than continuing to schedule everything manually.
But if you’re here reading this page, you’re obviously ready for a change.
Most likely you’ve realized that you can’t grow your business any further because there just aren’t enough hours in the day.
Perhaps you’re a little overwhelmed by the admin side of your business and you just need to get something off your plate before you go insane.
I hear you, and I’m here for you.
Acuity Scheduling is a fantastic platform for automated scheduling. Once you’re up and running with it, managing it is relatively simple. But I get that it can feel intimidating to get set up, and there’s certainly a learning curve with any new platform.
So that’s why this training exists.
I’ve been an Acuity Certified Expert since they launched the ACE program in March 2018. But I’ve been helping clients get set up on Acuity (and similar platforms) since 2010.
This training takes 10 years of experience and lessons learned from helping hundreds of Acuity users and turns it into a comprehensive resource to help you navigate setting up your automated scheduling system.
While I cover all of the basics of Acuity Scheduling, I go beyond the standard features and talk about industry-specific use-cases, as well as creative solutions for complex problems. I even dive into integrations and advanced setups to help you make the most of the platform.
Whether you’re a photographer, personal trainer, yoga instructor, massage therapist, dog trainer, groomer, tutor, business coach, or any other type of service provider, there’s a training for you.
And it doesn’t matter if you’re a solopreneur or running a franchise with multiple locations and employees.
Or if you’re a brick and mortar business, completely virtual, or anything in between.
If you’re ready to automate your scheduling, but want to be hands-on and do it yourself, this is the training for you.
Here’s what we’re covering
✔️ Creating appointment types and group classes
✔️ Setting your availability
✔️ Customizing client email notifications
✔️ Setting up payment processors
✔️ Creating packages and subscriptions
✔️ Managing appointments
✔️ Reading reports
✔️ Creating discount codes for appointments and packages
✔️ Managing users
💡 Coordinating multiple employees and locations
💡 Rooms & Resources
💡 Creating a Request/Confirm appointment system
💡 Setting up limited-time promotions
💡 Creating sliding scale appointment types
💡 Creating a referral-tracking system
💡 CSS Customization
💡 Selling non-appointment items
💡 Integrating with other platforms via Zapier
💡 Migrating from another platform
Basically, if I know it, I’m sharing it.
Yep, that’s 10 years of Acuity Scheduling experience and creativity at your fingertips.
One of the things I hate the most is seeing people sign up for trainings like this but never actually implementing what they learn. So I’ve created bonuses geared toward helping you actually take action.
Interactive Setup Guide
I’m giving you the exact template I use with my 1:1 clients to get clear on how their Acuity setup should work. It’s a step-by-step guide to make sure I collect every detail I need to complete a done-for-you setup. You’ll get the template itself plus a full walk-through video.
Even if you’re setting up your own account, this process ensures that you have all of the information and have thought through how all of the pieces connect together.
Bonus Q&A Sessions
During the month of December, I’ll be hosting two office hours for participants only. This is your chance to get your specific questions answered.
I find that it’s most efficient for you to get 1:1 help after you’ve gotten your hands dirty with the process. And I want to provide that follow up support for you.
(And you can submit questions to be answered, even if you can’t be there live!)
Additional 1:1 Help at a Members-Only Price
If you find you need more 1:1 help, you’ll have a discounted Pick My Brain session available to you.

Who is this for?
The Automated Scheduling Blueprint is for anyone who wants to add automated scheduling to their business.
The Scheduling Newbie
If you’re new to having an online scheduler, then this is a perfect way to make sure you get set up correctly the first time.
It’ll drastically shorten the learning curve and save you time and headache from navigating through it on your own.
The Halfway-There User
A lot of clients I’ve worked with over the past few years had previously set up Acuity themselves, but know they aren’t using it to its fullest extent.
If you’re ready to take your Acuity use to the next level, you’ll find the missing pieces here. You’ll most likely find a lot of inspiration in the integrations section to expand or connect your business ecosystem.
You’re not new to online scheduling, but you are new to Acuity. If you’re moving from another system, it can be really confusing to match your current platform’s terminology and features to Acuity’s. I’ve got you covered.
The bonus template is a great place to start to become familiar with how your business translates to Acuity’s framework. And I cover step-by-step what you should do to migrate over your client roster, upcoming appointments, and appointment history.

What if I'm not tech-savvy?
Obviously, this is a tech-based training to create an automated scheduling system.
What you get out of it will depend on the mindset you bring into it. If you’re determined that you’re “not tech-savvy,” then you’re going to be resistant to overcoming that, and this might not be for you.
That said, I specialize in breaking down tech so that everyone can understand it. If you come into this with the belief that you are a good learner, you shouldn’t have any trouble with this.
If you can read, type, copy/paste, and use drag-and-drop, you can master this tool.
How long will this take?
Honestly, I don’t know! It’s up to you how much of it you choose to watch and how long it takes you to implement what you learn.
When will you offer this training again?
I don’t plan to offer this Blueprint again in a live format.
If you buy now, you’ll have lifetime access to the course and all updates.
What if I don't learn anything new?
While I sincerely doubt you can attend the training and not glean at least something that’s helpful, if you really feel like the training was a waste of your time and you didn’t learn anything new, email me at email@example.com to discuss a refund. All refunds are handled on a case by case basis.
I have another question.
