We’ve tested a lot of appointment systems in our day, and Calendly takes the cake when it comes to simplicity and ease of use. Even for the biggest technophobe, this app makes scheduling a myriad of appointment types easy.
How It Works
Calendly is designed to be as simple as possible for both you and your customers. It links up with various calendar applications such as Google Calendar and MailChimp so you don’t have to setup an entirely new schedule again. Since we work with so many consultants and coaches, we love how easy it is to link in your calendar with Google Calendar and get going with time-based appointments in under ten minutes.
Now, the easy part is that you can send the appointment system as a link through your e-mail or phone. The best thing to do if you have a website is to embed it. By signing up with our website catapult service, we’ll get you sorted with how to embed Calendly into a polished and convenient appointment system for your business.
Setup & Pricing
To start using Calendly, sign up on their website and link it to your favorite cloud calendar app. It will automatically sync to display what times you are available from your calendar app. Now all you need to do is to add an event or set a certain block for your customers to come in and book an appointment. Our favorite thing about this app is that it doesn’t require your customers to sign up and register for the app itself!
In terms of pricing, Calendly offers 14-day free trial for the premium version, then USD $8 per user per month. The premium version allows you access to more powerful features but the free system works well for business owners just starting out.
