Do you think it matters if the information is posted on a social network? Does that affect the perception of the business?

I post my availability on my website, but I don't usually mention it on facebook. I do it purely to reduce the amount of inquiries I get for dates I am already booked.

We also post availability on our web site...if we used FB at all we would post it there too, but our business FB page is just a placeholder for people to click through to our real web site.

I don't think there would be a substantive change in perception of the business one way or the other...if people see that you are booked far in advance that does reflect positively, but if you are already booked you really don't need that additional bump.

I also have a calender on my website which shows when I am booked and available..However...I don't think customers even look at it because they still email and ask for cake 2 days before when I have it listed as booked.Go Figure!!

I have a calendar on my website where I list the dates that are booked up. I don't mention how booked I am otherwise.

I have a calendar. I use it for all special orders, wedding cakes and all other orders. Because it is also an e-commerce site, a calendar is a must.
