Down listed below here, you can also check for conflicts. You can use numerous calendars to look for disputes more than just the one that you have picked up here and you can also specify which calendar to include those appointments to. This is absolutely gon na be your really first stop to make sure that you have your calendar connections set up correctly. Simply choose add calendar account here and you can confirm with any calendar service consisting of 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 encourage you to upload an image. So if this is conferences or visits that individuals are going to be scheduling with you, I suggest that you put your nice profile image here in addition to your name and maybe a welcome message simply when they land on your beginning page. Next step, you also wan na make a fast stop at the branding page to add your company logo design or some other image that you would like to add here. And finally, we can click on the my link.
Now this is most likely more vital than you believe. You’re gon na wan na put the name of your business or perhaps it’s your full name. Remember, this is the URL that you are gon na be sharing with users. This is what you can link from your website or your social networks accounts or you can just copy and paste this and give it to individuals straight so that they can arrive at your Calendly page. All right, when you’ve 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 just 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 have actually got 2 events currently that individuals can select from and when they click on one of those events, they are likewise gon na see my branding here. This is where the logo design enters 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. Let’s go back to our menu within our account screen here. And this is actually our main page here on the house screen where you can add and modify existing events. I have actually got two events that I’m using at the moment but let’s go and develop a brand-new occasion from scratch. We gon na select that new event type, which is gon na open up a new screen. We’ve got 2 choices here, we can either develop an one-on-one meeting or a group conference. Now a group meeting lets several guests meet with you at a single time. This might be fantastic for an instructor or if you are providing a group webinar or something along those lines here. In most cases, the majority of individuals are using Calendly for one-on-one conference.
So let’s state produce for one-on-one. On this screen, the first thing that we need to do is offer it an event name. Now remember, this is more than simply your referral. This is what individuals are gon na be seen when they land on your Calendly page. I’m simply gon na call this one, Satisfying with Scott, actually easy here. I can recognize, oop, Satisfying with Scott. Let’s keep that in there. Our second step is to add a place and you can see we can inform our users upfront, is this a personally meeting, a telephone call or is it gon na be a specific conferencing conference such as using Google Meet, Zoom, GoToMeeting or possibly something custom, something that’s not even listed here. In our example, I’m gon na select telephone call in this case. And oftentimes, depending upon the alternative that you choose, you may have some extra alternatives waiting for you. For example, do I wan na pick if I will call my guest in this case, it’s gon na need the individual who’s scheduling that time to note their telephone number. I need to understand who I’m calling or I can choose this choice, my guest ought to call me. In this case, I can add my wanted phone number here and the fantastic thing with Calendly is that it’s not going to display this number up until they have booked the visit. If someone is considering scheduling 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 booked 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 provide their phone number. I’m gon na say upgrade, that’s gon na save that alternative here. If you have several occasions that you’re gon na be offering to your users, down below we can include a description which is something you do not wan na neglect particularly. I’m just gon na state, this is a conference with Scott for a consulting session, something like that, simply something so they can distinguish what this event is about compared to perhaps some of the other events that I have available. And after that simply below the description, we have our occasion link. Now we currently talked briefly about having your domain name or your organization name or perhaps your complete name to get them to your main Calendly page but this is something that you can share in addition, a different URL. So in this case again, you wan na try make it as specific as possible. Possibly I’m gon na say, meeting Scott, something like that, something that’s so easy for me to recognize but likewise if I simply copy and paste this link, they understand what they’re getting.
And last but not least, we can select a various color. This is really handy if you have several events, I’m gon na select red in this case so it stands apart from the other events that I’ve already produced. Now once we struck 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. By opening this app, you’re gon na see a lot of
