Are you a consultant, a freelancer or possibly you’re simply trying to find more leads and allowing people to easily and professionally book time in your calendar? Well, in today’s video, I’m gon na show you everything you require to know to use Calendly Hey there everybody, Scott Friesen here at Simpletivity, assisting you to get more done and take pleasure in less tension. And I have actually used Calendly for a while now. It is a quick and really 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 begun. So we’re gon na get things kicked off by entering into our menu, into our account when you have actually registered with Calendly. And among the top places that you’re gon na wan na go is up here to your account. Since truly everything is based around your relationship with Calendly and your calendar, and we want to go to calendar connections. The very first thing that you’re gon na wan na do is make sure that you add one or more calendar accounts. This not just enables Calendly to book those appointments directly to your calendar but it also permits Calendly.
And what I indicate by this, is things beyond simply Calendly visits however things that are happening possibly in your personal life or other conferences that come up as a part of your day. This is definitely gon na be your very first stop to make sure that you have your calendar connections set up correctly. Next up, we wan na stay with our account settings this time we’re gon na go to account account settings and I just wan na encourage you to submit an image.
Now this is probably more vital than you believe. In many cases, you’re gon na wan na put the name of your company or possibly it’s your complete name. However remember, this is the URL that you are gon na be sharing with users. This is what you can connect from your website or your social media accounts or you can simply copy and paste this and give it to people directly so that they can arrive at your Calendly page. All right, as soon as you have actually been finished with your account settings, let’s return to the house screen. I simply wan na show you where a few of those modifications take place. I’m gon na click my link here simply to reveal you where this shows up. So this is the preliminary landing page where people are gon na see my profile image, my name and that welcome message. I’ve got 2 occasions currently that people can pick from and when they click among those events, they are also gon na see my branding here. This is where the logo design enters into play. Now let’s move on to the events themselves and how can you set up one or more events so that it’s as easy for your prospective 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 really our main page here on the house screen where you can add and modify existing occasions. I have actually got two events that I’m using at the moment however let’s go and create a new event from scratch. We gon na pick that new occasion type, which is gon na open a new screen. We’ve got 2 options here, we can either develop an one-on-one meeting or a group conference. Now a group meeting lets multiple guests meet you at a single time. This might be fantastic for a teacher or if you are providing a group webinar or something along those lines here. In many cases, the majority of people are using Calendly for one-on-one conference.
Let’s say create for individually. On this screen, the first thing that we require to do is provide it an occasion name. Now remember, this is more than simply your referral. When they land on your Calendly page, this is what people are gon na be seen. So I’m simply gon na call this one, Meeting Scott, actually simple here. So I can identify, oop, Meeting Scott. Let’s keep that in there. Our 2nd step is to add a place and you can see we can inform our users upfront, is this a face to face conference, a telephone call or is it gon na be a specific conferencing meeting such as using Google Meet, Zoom, GoToMeeting or maybe something custom-made, something that’s not even noted here. In our example, I’m gon na select phone call in this case. And in a lot of cases, depending upon the alternative that you pick, you might have some extra alternatives awaiting you. For example, do I wan na pick if I will call my invitee in this case, it’s gon na need the person who’s reserving that time to note their contact number. I need to know who I’m calling or I can select this choice, my guest ought to call me. In this case, I can include my wanted contact number here and the fantastic thing with Calendly is that it’s not going to display this number until they have actually scheduled the appointment. 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’ve scheduled the time will this number be revealed. In this case, I’m gon na say, 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 save that choice here. If you have multiple events that you’re gon na be offering to your users, down listed below we can add a description which is something you do not wan na neglect particularly. So I’m just gon na say, this is a meeting with Scott for a consulting session, something like that, just something so they can distinguish what this occasion is about compared to perhaps some of the other events that I have offered. And then simply below the description, we have our occasion link. Now we currently talked briefly about having your domain or your business name or perhaps your full name to get them to your main Calendly page however this is something that you can share in addition, a different URL. So in this case once again, you wan na attempt make it as particular as possible. So maybe I’m gon na say, satisfying Scott, something like that, something that’s so easy for me to identify however likewise if I just copy and paste this link, they know what they’re getting as well.
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
