Next action, you likewise wan na make a fast stop at the branding page to include your company logo design or some other image that you want to add here. And lastly, we can click on the my link.
Now this is most likely more crucial than you believe. In most cases, you’re gon na wan na put the name of your organization or perhaps it’s your complete 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 directly so that they can arrive on your Calendly page. All right, as soon as you’ve been finished with your account settings, let’s return to the home screen. I just wan na show you where some of those changes happen. I’m gon na click my link here just to show you where this appears. So this is the preliminary landing page where individuals are gon na see my profile image, my name which welcome message. I have actually got 2 events currently that individuals can choose 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 comes into play.

I’ve got two occasions that I’m using at the moment however let’s go and develop a new occasion from scratch. We gon na pick that brand-new occasion type, which is gon na open a new screen. We have actually got 2 options here, we can either create an individually meeting or a group conference. Now a group conference lets multiple invitees consult with you at a single time. This might be excellent for a teacher or if you are providing a group webinar or something along those lines here. In many cases, the bulk of people are utilizing Calendly for one-on-one meeting.
So let’s say produce for individually. On this screen, the first thing that we need to do is give it an occasion name. Now remember, this is more than just your referral.

In our example, I’m gon na select phone call in this case. And in most cases, depending upon the choice that you pick, you might have some additional alternatives waiting for you. For instance, do I wan na pick if I will call my guest in this case, it’s gon na need the individual who’s reserving that time to list their phone number. I require to understand who I’m calling or I can choose this choice, my guest should call me. In this case, I can add my wanted contact number here and the terrific thing with Calendly is that it’s not going to show this number till they have reserved 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. However in this case, I’m gon na say, I will call my guests ’cause I’m gon na ask them to provide their contact number. I’m gon na say update, that’s gon na save that option here. If you have multiple events 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 overlook specifically. 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 distinguish what this event has to do with compared to possibly some of the other events that I have offered. And then simply listed below the description, we have our occasion link.
