Tips on Tuesday: Scheduling Appointments in a Timely Fashion

Firstly: vendors, like everyone else are busy. They are working on multiple events at a given time and most vendors work their schedule in a first come, first served manner. Which means that when you are scheduling a meeting with them - be quick to respond and quick to confirm a meeting.

In an industry where everyone's calendars get booked out years in advance {no, seriously, they do}, most vendors have a very good idea of what their schedule looks like months in advance {side note: it also means that their family has to plan in advance as well if they want said vendor to be at said family affair}, so there's no need to think its strange to make appointments months in advance.

On the flip side, if you have to cancel an appointment, do so when you first realize you need to cancel. Have a legitimate reason {not, I'd rather be having dinner with my friends} and give them some additional dates that work to re-schedule. No one likes to be stood up at the last minute.
