Well, in today’s video, I’m gon na reveal you everything you need to know to use Calendly Hi everyone, Scott Friesen here at Simpletivity, helping you to get more done and enjoy less stress. And I have actually used Calendly for a while now. It is a quick and very easy tool to enable 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 when you’ve signed up with Calendly. And one of the first places that you’re gon na wan na go is up here to your account. And we want to go to calendar connections since really 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 add several calendar accounts. This not only permits Calendly to book those appointments directly to your calendar however it also allows Calendly.
to check other reservations that you might have going on. And what I indicate by this, is things beyond just Calendly visits however things that are happening maybe in your personal life or other meetings that show up as a part of your day. Down listed below here, you can likewise look for conflicts. You can utilize multiple calendars to look for disputes more than simply the one that you have actually chosen up here and you can likewise define which calendar to add those appointments to. This is certainly gon na be your very first stop to make sure that you have your calendar connections set up properly. Simply select add calendar account here and you can authenticate with any calendar service including Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook. Next up, we wan na stick with our account settings this time we’re gon na go to account account settings and I just wan na motivate you to publish an image. So if this is meetings or appointments that individuals are going to be scheduling with you, I advise that you put your nice profile picture here in addition to your name and maybe a welcome message just when they land on your beginning page. Next step, you likewise wan na make a fast stop at the branding page to add your business logo or some other image that you wish to add here. And last but not least, we can click the my link.
Now this is most likely more vital than you think. In many cases, you’re gon na wan na put the name of your organization or possibly 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 straight so that they can land on your Calendly page. All right, once you’ve been finished with your account settings, let’s go back to the house screen. I just wan na show you where a few of those modifications occur. I’m gon na click my link here simply to reveal you where this appears. So this is the preliminary landing page where people are gon na see my profile image, my name which welcome message. I have actually got 2 events presently that individuals can pick from and when they click one of those occasions, they are also gon na see my branding here. This is where the logo design enters play. Now let’s move on to the occasions themselves and how can you set up one or more occasions so that it’s as easy for your potential leads or for your customers to come in here and book time with you. Let’s go back to our menu within our account screen here. And this is truly our main page here on the home screen where you can include and modify existing occasions. I have actually got 2 occasions that I’m utilizing at the moment but let’s go and develop a brand-new occasion from scratch. We gon na select that new occasion type, which is gon na open a brand-new screen. We have actually got 2 options here, we can either develop an one-on-one conference or a group meeting. Now a group meeting lets several invitees meet with you at a single time. This may be excellent for a teacher or if you are providing a group webinar or something along those lines here. However in most cases, most of people are using Calendly for individually meeting.
So let’s state develop for one-on-one. On this screen, the first thing that we require to do is offer it an occasion name. Now keep in mind, 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, Consulting with Scott, really basic here. I can determine, oop, Satisfying with Scott. Let’s keep that in there. Our second step is to include a place and you can see we can inform our users upfront, is this a personally meeting, a call or is it gon na be a particular conferencing meeting such as using Google Meet, Zoom, GoToMeeting or perhaps something customized, something that’s not even noted here. In our example, I’m gon na choose call in this case. And in a lot of cases, depending upon the choice that you choose, you might have some extra alternatives awaiting you. For example, do I wan na select if I will call my invitee in this case, it’s gon na need the person who’s scheduling that time to note their phone number. I need to know who I’m calling or I can select this choice, my guest should call me. In this case, I can include my desired telephone number here and the fantastic thing with Calendly is that it’s not going to display this number until they have booked the consultation. If somebody is thinking about booking time with me, it’s not as if they’re gon na see my phone number or my dial in number right away, it’s only after they have actually scheduled the time will this number be exposed. In this case, I’m gon na state, I will call my invitees ’cause I’m gon na ask them to provide their phone number. I’m gon na say upgrade, that’s gon na conserve that alternative here. If you have several events that you’re gon na be using to your users, down listed below we can add a description which is something you don’t wan na neglect especially. I’m simply gon na say, this is a meeting with Scott for a consulting session, something like that, simply something so they can separate what this event is about compared to maybe some of the other events that I have available. And then simply below the description, we have our event link. Now we already talked briefly about having your domain name or your service name or possibly your complete name to get them to your primary Calendly page however this is something that you can share in addition, a separate URL. In this case once again, you wan na attempt make it as specific as possible. Possibly I’m gon na state, fulfilling Scott, something like that, something that’s so simple for me to determine however also if I just copy and paste this link, they know what they’re getting.
And last but not least, we can choose a different color. This is very useful if you have several occasions, I’m gon na select red in this case just so it sticks out from the other events that I have actually already produced. Now once we hit next, we’re gon na get to the nuts and bolts of our occasion. When can individuals book this event, in this menu screen called. So by opening this app, you’re gon na see a great deal of
