You’re a business owner, not a copy writer. Rather than waste cycles trying to craft the perfect copy for your client appointment reminders, just use these 87 industry-specific appointment reminder samples!

For all client communication, you need to follow these four simple rules:

Keep it Real.
You know your clients. Make your reminder sound like your brand! If you’re “hip and with it”, add some spunk to your wording. If you like to keep it classy, do just that.

Keep it Relevant.
The main function of an appointment reminder is to get your clients the information they need. Don’t convolute the message with unnecessary details like sales and promotions. There are other messaging avenues for that.

Keep it Short.
Apptoto SMS text messages can support up to 300 characters, but that doesn’t mean you have to use them all. Use what you need to get the information across.

Keep it Consistent.
Many of your clients will be repeats and will come to rely on your reminders. If you reminded them 3 days before their appointment and then again 1 hour before, that needs to be the cadence you continue

Now, let’s take a look at those appointment reminder samples. Start using them today!
