I am rather unusual In that I take same day appointments and appointments in advance only with a deposit, I do this full time and I don’t have kids or another job, so no need to sort out child care or work restrictive hours.  This means that so far this year I have had 1 cancellation, and that was someone who booked last minute and cancelled minutes after he had booked, not really causing me any inconvenience.

I have lost count of the people coming to see me commenting on how other mistresses they see have a terrible time with people messing them around, cancelling by text half an hour before the appointment etc, week in week out, to the point where they start sessioning less or have to start charging deposits for all their sessions.  This is exactly why I do everything same day, meaning I don’t have these problems.

More people are calling trying to book me in advance, and then confirm in the morning, which is fine, but if another person calls earlier than you, I will take that session as in my experience people who book even a day in advance tend to either not confirm, or change the time, only a small percentage actually confirm for the time and date they said they would, also what if you just don’t feel like it, get called into work on your day off ? at least if you arrange on the day this is unlikely to happen, and this means a lot less stress for the both of us.

My system works really well for most of my clients (I have been working this way for years)  but a few genuine people will be reading this getting annoyed that they can’t book a definite time without a deposit in advance, however if I worked that way I would do a fraction of the sessions I am currently doing due to being messed around .  Lots of people like the fact my phone is on from 7am as they can call and arrange before work so my phone really does starting ringing from that time.
