That’s because apps like Goldie send automated text message reminders to your clients so that they won’t forget anymore about their appointments. Also, it allows you to take deposits and payments from clients, directly in the app. If you want to give it a try, you can download it for free in the App Store and Google Play. It’s a lifesaver, trust me!
