Well, in today’s video, I’m gon na show you everything you require to understand to utilize Calendly Hello everybody, Scott Friesen here at Simpletivity, helping you to get more done and take pleasure in less stress. And I have actually utilized Calendly for a while now. It is a fast and very simple tool to permit people who have an interest in my service and in my work to book time with me. So I wan na show you how to get things started. We’re gon na get things kicked off by going into our menu, into our account once you have actually signed up with Calendly. And among the top places that you’re gon na wan na go is up here to your account. And we wish to go to calendar connections because truly everything is based around your relationship with Calendly and your calendar. So the first thing that you’re gon na wan na do is ensure that you include one or more calendar accounts. This not just permits Calendly to book those appointments directly to your calendar however it also allows Calendly.
to examine other bookings that you might have going on. And what I suggest by this, is things beyond just Calendly visits however things that are occurring perhaps in your individual life or other meetings that show up as a part of your day. Down below here, you can likewise check for conflicts. You can utilize several calendars to check for disputes more than simply the one that you have actually selected up here and you can also specify which calendar to add those consultations to. This is certainly gon na be your extremely first stop to make sure that you have your calendar connections set up correctly. Simply choose include calendar account here and you can verify with any calendar service including Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook. Next up, we wan na stay with our account settings this time we’re gon na go to account account settings and I simply wan na motivate you to upload an image. So if this is meetings or visits that people are going to be scheduling with you, I suggest that you put your good profile picture here along with your name and possibly a welcome message simply when they arrive on your start page. Next action, you also wan na make a quick stop at the branding page to add your company logo or some other image that you would like to add here. And last but not least, we can click the my link.
Now this is probably more important than you think. You’re gon na wan na put the name of your organization or maybe it’s your full name. Keep in mind, this is the URL that you are gon na be sharing with users. This is what you can link from your site or your social media accounts or you can simply copy and paste this and give it to people directly so that they can land on your Calendly page. All right, when you have actually been finished with your account settings, let’s go back to the home screen. I just wan na show you where some of those modifications happen. I’m gon na click on my link here simply to show you where this shows up. So this is the preliminary landing page where people are gon na see my profile image, my name which welcome message. I’ve got two events presently that people can choose from and when they click on among those events, they are likewise gon na see my branding here. This is where the logo enters play. Now let’s move on to the occasions themselves and how can you set up one or more events so that it’s as simple for your potential leads or for your clients to come in here and book time with you. So let’s return to our menu within our account screen here. And this is actually our main page here on the house screen where you can include and edit existing occasions. I’ve got 2 events that I’m using at the moment however let’s go and produce a brand-new event from scratch. We gon na pick that new event type, which is gon na open up a brand-new screen. We have actually got 2 options here, we can either create an individually conference or a group conference. Now a group conference lets several guests consult with you at a single time. This may be fantastic for a teacher or if you are providing a group webinar or something along those lines here. In a lot of cases, the majority of people are utilizing Calendly for one-on-one conference.
So let’s say produce for individually. On this screen, the first thing that we require to do is give it an occasion name. Now remember, this is more than simply your recommendation. This is what individuals are gon na be seen when they land on your Calendly page. So I’m simply gon na call this one, Meeting with Scott, actually easy here. So I can identify, oop, Consulting with Scott. Let’s keep that therein. Our second step is to add a location and you can see we can tell our users upfront, is this a personally meeting, a call or is it gon na be a specific conferencing conference such as utilizing Google Meet, Zoom, GoToMeeting or perhaps something custom-made, something that’s not even noted here. In our example, I’m gon na select call in this case. And in most cases, depending on the option that you select, you may have some extra alternatives waiting on you. For instance, do I wan na choose if I will call my guest in this case, it’s gon na require the individual who’s reserving that time to list their telephone number. I need to understand who I’m calling or I can select this choice, my guest must call me. In this case, I can include my preferred contact number here and the terrific thing with Calendly is that it’s not going to display this number until they have actually booked the consultation. So if somebody is considering reserving time with me, it’s not as if they’re gon na see my phone number or my dial in number immediately, it’s just after they have actually booked the time will this number be exposed. However in this case, I’m gon na state, I will call my invitees ’cause I’m gon na ask them to supply their phone number. I’m gon na state upgrade, that’s gon na conserve that option here. Down listed below we can include a description which is something you do not wan na ignore particularly if you have several occasions that you’re gon na be using to your users. So I’m simply gon na say, this is a conference with Scott for a consulting session, something like that, simply something so they can separate what this event is about compared to perhaps a few of the other events that I have available. And then just below the description, we have our event link. Now we already talked briefly about having your domain or your service name or perhaps your complete name to get them to your primary Calendly page however this is something that you can share in addition, a separate URL. So in this case once again, you wan na attempt make it as specific as possible. Perhaps I’m gon na say, satisfying Scott, something like that, something that’s so simple for me to recognize but also if I simply paste this link and copy, they understand what they’re getting.
Now once we struck next, we’re gon na get to the nuts and bolts of our event. By opening this app, you’re gon na see a lot of
