Any business whether digital or not requires some type of a bridge between client interest and client onboarding. Typically, the traditional way of acquiring new clients is through a phone call which is followed by a scheduled meeting. With the expansive growth of eCommerce and web technology, many are moving over to the web to schedule appointments and book business meetings. As a result, there’s an ever-growing demand for website plugins and themes which provide appointment capabilities. Luckily, WordPress is more than capable of handling form submissions, and in more ways than just appointments, too!
An online appointment system helps to replace the hard work of your secretary who has to deal with calls all day. Instead, modern users (clients) can directly place their proposal through a digital form, similarly to how you would send an email, or use a contact form. Furthermore, any appointments submitted online can be parsed as real business document and be kept in an archive for later usage. When it comes to WordPress and appointment forms you have to options. The first option is to use an appointments plugin. The second option is a WordPress business theme with inbuilt appointment forms that are ready to be used.
In this collection of business themes, we will go ahead with the latter. The following themes are generally business oriented — mostly niche specific — and incorporate a way for your clients to schedule meetings or book appointments directly from the website. And because premium themes naturally support responsive design, you get the benefit of not having to design a separate mobile website. Take your time to analyze the following themes and examine their appropriate niches. As with any premium theme, the core niche is only a placeholder. With a little bit of patience and some editing skills, you can adapt a “travel” theme to fit for a “startup” website. That’s how simple it is to use WordPress!
BookMe is an excellent business theme choice if you run your own agency, service business, or similar type of a small business. In addition to an already great design, the BookMe theme is flexible when it comes to adjusting the theme for a given business. As an example, people from industries like accounting, fitness, health, and law are using BookMe to host their portfolio. The lean and fresh design has just about everything you would need to explain your offers. Furthermore, you can add multiple unique “get a quote” widgets on your homepage. Most importantly, BookMe includes a Calendar which is plugged into the appointment bookings system. As a result, clients can go through the available timeslots each day and book an appointment for an appropriate time.
This approach of using a Calendar is great because your clients no longer need to call you directly. And you can move your appointment management to the digital environment altogether. Of course, besides the functionality of bookings, the BookMe theme manages to impress with a lean and pristine design. Apply effects like Parallax to your Premium Sliders, and use WPML to translate your website into other languages. Most of the technical aspects are premade and only require a few slight changes on your part.More info / Download Demo

With an automated booking and scheduling system, you will never need to worry about managing paperwork again.

As an example, you can select numerous themes from the demo catalog. The demo themes available are as follows: Physician, Contractor, Stylist, Consultant, Coach, Trainer, Entrepreneur, and Barber.
As you can tell, a variety of design isn’t an issue here. In fact, it’s hard to find faults with a theme so well-oriented. Furthermore, you can avoid appointment failures by asking clients to make a deposit for their preferred time. As a result, people will feel more inclined to actually follow through with their booking. Payments and deposits are managed solely with the WooCommerce plugin. You can take things a step further and synchronize your schedule with Google Calendar — a popular app amongst small businesses who use Google for business management.

It’s rather interesting how one theme of the same category can differ so much from another one. The prime example here being us listing two Yoga themes in a row. But, the reasoning behind this idea is simple. Yoga as a niche is all about individuals, sometimes studios, but mostly people who wish to create a way for them to connect with like-minded communities. As a result, yoga themes vary in their style, features, and overall design.
When looking at the Yogi theme, we see great potential for Yogi theme to be a household for yoga instructors, trainers, and perhaps even a studio. But, the first impressions are that Yogi is much better at conveying the individuality of a person. At least that’s how the homepage is structured. Nonetheless, the features of Yogi include an Events page, a page for listing Trainers, and even a Class timetable. Furthermore, you can use this to to write any kind of a blog post about your specific wellness niche, whether it’s yoga or pilates! And, finally, you can sell your services through the digital store.
