The initial setup

Welcome to Bookaspace and thank you for signing up. This is a quick guide to the steps you have to take to be able to take your first booking online.

1 - Finish your profile

First, finish up your profile. Log in to your account, head to Settings and complete your information. We recommend you fill out at least:

  1. Address (this is required to be shown in the Discover view for artists)
  2. Profile picture
  3. Amenities
  4. Contact Information

2 - Double check your opening hours

We have inserted default opening hours but please double check and make sure they match your facilities hours. This is important so artists can't place booking outside of when you're open.

3 - Add your rooms

You need to add at least one room to your Bookaspace profile that can be selected when placing a booking. This can be done within your settings.

Next Steps

Add existing upcoming bookings

We apologise in advance, this bit might be tedious and we're happy to do it for you:

To make full use of the online system you should transfer your existing upcoming bookings to Bookaspace. This is so when artists book online, they can see when your studio has free slots that they can select. It will also help you when you create a booking manually.

If you do not want to do this yourself, we'll be happy to help. All you need to do is send us a screenshot / list or similar of your upcoming bookings and we will manually put them in.

Add a "Book Now" button to your facebook page

We recommend adding a "Book Now" button to your facebook page (if you have one) and link it to your Bookaspace profile so artists coming to your page can see they can book online. This is easily done, please follow the official Facebook guide.

You can find your public Bookaspace url in your Settings under "Public URL"

Make your customers aware that they can now book online

We're a new service and we do rely on you helping us out getting the word out. We'd appreciate you writing for example a facebook status update to announce that you are now using Bookaspace. If you tag our facebook page, we will do the same thing!

We would love to send you your custom business cards that includes your Bookaspace link that you can hand out to your customers. This is free of charge! The cards will include

  1. Your Studio Name
  2. Studio Address
  3. Bookaspace URL
  4. Bookaspace Logo (on the back)
