Are you spending too much time coordinating meeting times?
If constantly emailing back and forth to set up meetings or sessions with your clients just isn’t working any more, you need Calendly, especially if your business management tool is lacking this feature.
Once you set up your account, you’ll set your hours of availability and sync your calendar. There are all kinds of settings you can customize, from needing a buffer between events to limiting the number of events that can be scheduled on any one day. With all your settings complete, you’re ready to start booking! Simply send your link to anyone you want to schedule an appointment with; via email, slack, facebook, text, ANYTHING. The person receiving the link won’t see anything on your calendar, they’ll ONLY see when you’re available! Have a website? You can embed the scheduler right onto a webpage of your choice! PLUS, with Zapier, Calendly has TONS of helpful integrations to help you run your business better.
One of the best things about Calendly is that it’s AFFORDABLE! You can do everything I’ve described on the FREE plan! If you need multiple event types or want to host group events, you can upgrade to do so for just $8 a month. Trust me, you spend $8 worth of time scheduling meetings already.
On a personal note, I’ve found that having a scheduler is the BEST way to make sure that I don’t do work outside of work hours. Since I’m so customer service oriented, I always try to accommodate my clients. Being able to just send a link that has ONLY my desired working hours available, I get to spend MORE time with my family (or, let’s be real, binge watching Netflix).
SO IN CONCLUSION, START USING CALENDLY TODAY TO:
- Schedule consultations & discovery calls
- Schedule sessions (ESPECIALLY mini-sessions!)
- Save your sanity from endless back and forth emails that end up with a meeting time you’re not even happy with
- Totally geek out over free, awesome technology (I LOVE THE 21st CENTURY!)
By the way, I’m not being paid to say this, I just LOVE Calendly THAT much!
