So I wan na reveal you how to get things begun. So we’re gon na get things started by going into our menu, into our account when you’ve registered with Calendly. And one of the first places that you’re gon na wan na go is up here to your account. And we want to go to calendar connections because truly whatever is based around your relationship with Calendly and your calendar. The very first thing that you’re gon na wan na do is make sure that you include one or more calendar accounts. This not just allows Calendly to book those appointments directly to your calendar but it likewise allows Calendly.
And what I imply by this, is things beyond simply Calendly consultations however things that are occurring perhaps in your individual life or other conferences that come up as a part of your day. This is definitely gon na be your extremely 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 simply wan na encourage you to publish an image.
Now this is most likely more important than you think. You’re gon na wan na put the name of your company or perhaps it’s your complete name. But 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 individuals straight so that they can arrive on your Calendly page. All right, once you have actually been finished with your account settings, let’s go back to the house screen. I just 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 appears. So this is the initial landing page where individuals are gon na see my profile image, my name and that welcome message. I have actually got two events currently that people can choose from and when they click among those occasions, they are likewise 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 simple for your potential leads or for your clients to come in here and book time with you. So let’s go back to our menu within our account screen here. And this is really our primary page here on the home screen where you can include and modify existing occasions. I have actually got two occasions that I’m utilizing at the moment however let’s go and create a new occasion from scratch. We gon na pick that new occasion type, which is gon na open up a brand-new screen. We’ve got 2 choices here, we can either create an individually meeting or a group conference. Now a group meeting lets multiple guests meet with you at a single time. This may be great for a teacher or if you are supplying a group webinar or something along those lines here. But for the most part, the majority of individuals are using Calendly for individually conference.
So let’s state develop for individually. On this screen, the first thing that we require to do is offer it an occasion name. Now keep in mind, this is more than simply your reference. When they land on your Calendly page, this is what individuals are gon na be seen. I’m simply gon na call this one, Meeting with Scott, actually simple here. So I can determine, oop, Consulting with Scott. Let’s keep that therein. Our second action is to include a place and you can see we can tell our users upfront, is this an in person meeting, a call or is it gon na be a specific conferencing meeting such as using Google Meet, Zoom, GoToMeeting or maybe something customized, something that’s not even noted here. In our example, I’m gon na choose telephone call in this case. And oftentimes, depending upon the alternative that you select, you may have some extra alternatives waiting on you. Do I wan na select 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 know who I’m calling or I can choose this alternative, my guest ought to call me. In this case, I can include my wanted phone number here and the great thing with Calendly is that it’s not going to display this number up until they have actually booked the consultation. So if somebody is considering reserving time with me, it’s not as if they’re gon na see my contact number or my dial in number right now, it’s just after they have actually booked the time will this number be revealed. In this case, I’m gon na say, I will call my guests ’cause I’m gon na ask them to provide their phone number. I’m gon na say update, that’s gon na conserve that alternative here. If you have numerous events that you’re gon na be providing to your users, down below we can add a description which is something you don’t wan na neglect specifically. I’m simply gon na say, this is a meeting with Scott for a consulting session, something like that, simply something so they can differentiate what this occasion is about compared to possibly some of the other occasions that I have readily available. And after that simply below the description, we have our event link. Now we currently talked briefly about having your domain name or your business name or maybe your full name to get them to your primary Calendly page however this is something that you can share in addition, a different URL. So in this case again, you wan na attempt make it as particular as possible. So perhaps I’m gon na state, fulfilling Scott, something like that, something that’s so easy for me to determine however likewise if I simply copy and paste this link, they understand what they’re getting as well.
