Salon Booking System needs your help and today we want to tell you a story.
It’s the story of two friends passionate about WordPress and its unlimited potentials to help little business owners to better manage their daily work.
These two friends, three years ago now, applied for an European announcement to get a zero interest rate loan of 25.000 euros from European Union to fund a project called:
“Salon Booking System”.
The project won the loan and the two friends started a long run development process of a WordPress plugin that since its first moves got the attention and the appreciation of little business owners happy to start using this tool to manage their online reservations.
After three years of daily hard work, much more of 40.000 euros invested in features development, answering to thousand of support requests, Salon Booking System is present over 4.000 websites with its free version, and trusted by more than 700 paid customers worldwide that are using this plugin on daily basis to manage their shop’s appointments agenda.
These numbers could sounds very little compared to the numbers made by the big players in the market.
But for us, two guys, from a little unknown city of the South of Italy, with almost no money, no coding skills, no angel investors at our back, represent an unexpected result to be proud of it.
Today we are using all the revenues to pay the loan back and to finance our plugin ongoing development.
At the end of the month we still don’t have enough resources to be invested on marketing or advertising activities, nor to keep money for us.
We still have a long list of features that we want to be develop to empower Salon Booking System and to make it the best online appointments tool on the market.
Most of these features have been suggested by our customers that provide us a precious feedback every day to improve our tool, hence to improve their own business.
But we are in a moment where the need for more features doesn’t match our current financial resources.
For this reason we are asking you to support us finding the money we need to develop important crucial features we have in the pipeline.
Here the a partial list of each of them:
- Complete the Multi-Shop add-on
- Contemporary services option
- Two assistants for one service option
- Duplicate Service and Assistant
- Services list shortcode
- Assistants list shortcode
- Front-end customer details management
- SMS text management
- Email notifications text management
- Discount based on assistant selected
- Discount based on booking rule
- Block time/slot from back-end calendar
- Booking form theming
and many others..
Now you can decide to support us with a little donation of your choice to allow us to continue with our development plan.
We’ll keep you posted over our tasks competition.
The name of all the donors will be published on our official website as we consider them as co-authors of Salon Booking System.
