And I’ve used Calendly for a while now. It is a quick and extremely simple tool to allow people who are interested in my company and in my work to book time with me. So I wan na reveal you how to get things started. We’re gon na get things kicked off by going into our menu, into our account when you’ve signed up with Calendly. And one of the first places that you’re gon na wan na go is up here to your account. Due to the fact that actually everything is based around your relationship with Calendly and your calendar, and we want to go to calendar connections.

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 include here. And last but not least, we can click on the my link.
You’re gon na wan na put the name of your company or possibly it’s your full name.

So let’s state develop for individually. On this screen, the first thing that we need to do is offer it an event name. Now remember, this is more than just your reference. This is what individuals are gon na be seen when they land on your Calendly page. I’m simply gon na call this one, Meeting with Scott, actually easy here. So I can determine, oop, Consulting with Scott. Let’s keep that in there. Our second action is to add a location and you can see we can tell our users upfront, is this a face to face conference, a telephone call or is it gon na be a particular conferencing meeting such as using Google Meet, Zoom, GoToMeeting or perhaps something custom, something that’s not even noted here. In our example, I’m gon na pick call in this case. And in many cases, depending upon the choice that you choose, you might have some extra options awaiting you. For example, do I wan na choose if I will call my guest in this case, it’s gon na require the individual who’s booking that time to list their contact number. I need to understand who I’m calling or I can select this choice, my guest ought to call me. In this case, I can include my desired phone number here and the terrific thing with Calendly is that it’s not going to show this number until they have reserved the consultation. If somebody 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’ve reserved the time will this number be revealed. But in this case, I’m gon na state, I will call my guests ’cause I’m gon na ask them to supply their contact number. I’m gon na state update, that’s gon na save that choice here. Down below we can add a description which is something you don’t wan na neglect especially if you have several events that you’re gon na be providing to your users. I’m just gon na say, this is a conference with Scott for a consulting session, something like that, just something so they can distinguish what this occasion is about compared to perhaps some of the other events that I have readily available.

And last but not least, we can select a different color. This is extremely helpful if you have several events, I’m gon na select red in this case just so it sticks out from the other occasions that I have actually currently developed. Now as soon as we hit next, we’re gon na get to the nuts and bolts of our occasion. When can individuals book this event, in this menu screen called. By opening this app, you’re gon na see a lot of
