So this is definitely gon na be your very first stop to ensure that you have your calendar connections set up properly. Simply choose add calendar account here and you can authenticate with any calendar service consisting of 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 encourage you to upload an image. If this is conferences or consultations that individuals are going to be scheduling with you, I suggest that you put your nice profile photo here along with your name and perhaps a welcome message simply when they land on your start page. Next step, you likewise wan na make a quick stop at the branding page to include 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 vital than you believe. In many cases, you’re gon na wan na put the name of your business or maybe it’s your full name. However keep in mind, 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 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 house screen. I simply wan na show you where some of those changes occur. I’m gon na click on my link here just to reveal you where this shows up. This is the preliminary landing page where individuals are gon na see my profile image, my name and that welcome message. I’ve got two occasions presently that people can pick from and when they click on among those occasions, they are also gon na see my branding here. This is where the logo design enters into play. But now let’s move on to the occasions themselves and how can you set up several events so that it’s as simple for your prospective 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 primary page here on the home screen where you can include and edit existing events. I’ve got two occasions that I’m using at the moment but let’s go and produce a brand-new event from scratch. We gon na select that new event type, which is gon na open a new screen. We have actually got 2 options here, we can either produce an one-on-one conference or a group meeting. Now a group meeting lets multiple guests meet you at a single time. This might be excellent for an instructor or if you are supplying a group webinar or something along those lines here. However in many cases, most of people are using Calendly for individually conference.
So let’s say produce for individually. On this screen, the first thing that we need to do is give it an event name. Now remember, this is more than just your referral. When they land on your Calendly page, this is what people are gon na be seen. I’m just gon na call this one, Meeting with Scott, truly easy here. So I can identify, oop, Meeting with Scott. Let’s keep that in there. Our second action is to add a location and you can see we can inform our users upfront, is this an in person conference, a call or is it gon na be a particular conferencing conference such as utilizing Google Meet, Zoom, GoToMeeting or possibly something custom, something that’s not even noted here. In our example, I’m gon na select telephone call in this case. And in many cases, depending on the alternative that you pick, you may have some extra alternatives waiting on you. Do I wan na pick if I will call my invitee in this case, it’s gon na need the individual who’s scheduling that time to list their phone number. I need to understand who I’m calling or I can pick this option, my invitee needs to call me. In this case, I can include my desired contact number here and the excellent thing with Calendly is that it’s not going to show this number up until they have actually booked the visit. So if someone is considering booking time with me, it’s not as if they’re gon na see my telephone number or my dial in number right now, it’s just after they have actually booked the time will this number be exposed. 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 state update, that’s gon na conserve that choice here. If you have multiple occasions that you’re gon na be providing to your users, down listed below we can add a description which is something you do not wan na overlook particularly. I’m simply gon na say, this is a conference with Scott for a consulting session, something like that, just something so they can separate what this event is about compared to maybe some of the other events that I have available. And after that simply listed below the description, we have our event link. Now we already talked briefly about having your domain or your business name or maybe 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 specific as possible. Maybe I’m gon na state, satisfying Scott, something like that, something that’s so easy for me to recognize but likewise if I simply paste this link and copy, they know what they’re getting.
