So if this is meetings or appointments that individuals are going to be scheduling with you, I recommend that you put your great profile picture here together with your name and perhaps a welcome message simply when they arrive on your beginning page. Next action, you likewise wan na make a fast stop at the branding page to add your business logo or some other image that you would like to include here. And last but not least, we can click the my link.
Now this is probably more vital than you believe. For the most part, you’re gon na wan na put the name of your company or possibly it’s your complete name. Keep in mind, this is the URL that you are gon na be sharing with users. This is what you can connect from your site or your social networks accounts or you can just copy and paste this and give it to people 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 go back to the home screen. I simply wan na show you where some of those modifications occur. I’m gon na click my link here just to show you where this appears. So this is the initial landing page where people are gon na see my profile image, my name and that welcome message. I have actually got 2 occasions currently that individuals can choose from and when they click on one of those occasions, they are likewise gon na see my branding here. This is where the logo 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 prospective leads or for your customers 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 events. I have actually got two events that I’m using at the moment but let’s go and create a brand-new event from scratch. We gon na select that brand-new event type, which is gon na open a brand-new screen. We have actually got 2 options here, we can either produce an individually meeting or a group conference. Now a group meeting lets multiple invitees consult 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. In many cases, the bulk of individuals are using Calendly for individually meeting.
So let’s state produce for individually. On this screen, the first thing that we require to do is give it an event name. Now keep in mind, this is more than just your reference. This is what individuals are gon na be seen when they arrive on your Calendly page. I’m simply gon na call this one, Meeting with Scott, really easy here. So I can identify, oop, Meeting Scott. Let’s keep that therein. Our second step is to include an area and you can see we can tell our users upfront, is this an in person meeting, a phone call or is it gon na be a particular conferencing meeting such as utilizing Google Meet, Zoom, GoToMeeting or maybe something custom-made, something that’s not even noted here. In our example, I’m gon na pick call in this case. And in many cases, depending on the choice that you choose, you may have some extra alternatives waiting on you. Do I wan na pick if I will call my guest in this case, it’s gon na require the person who’s scheduling that time to note their phone number. I need to know who I’m calling or I can choose this choice, my invitee should call me. In this case, I can add my preferred contact number here and the terrific thing with Calendly is that it’s not going to show this number till they have scheduled the visit. If somebody is considering 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. But in this case, I’m gon na say, I will call my guests ’cause I’m gon na inquire to offer their telephone number. I’m gon na state upgrade, that’s gon na conserve that alternative here. Down listed below we can include a description which is something you don’t wan na overlook particularly if you have multiple occasions that you’re gon na be offering to your users. So I’m just gon na state, this is a meeting with Scott for a consulting session, something like that, just something so they can differentiate what this event is about compared to maybe a few of the other occasions 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 company name or possibly your full name to get them to your primary Calendly page but this is something that you can share in addition, a separate URL. So in this case again, you wan na attempt make it as specific as possible. So maybe I’m gon na state, satisfying Scott, something like that, something that’s so simple for me to identify but likewise if I simply paste this link and copy, they know what they’re getting also.
And finally, we can select a different color. This is very practical if you have numerous occasions, I’m gon na select red in this case just so it sticks out from the other occasions that I’ve currently created. Now as soon as we hit next, we’re gon na get to the nuts and bolts of our event. When can individuals book this occasion, in this menu screen called. So by opening this app, you’re gon na see a great deal of
