Pro tips for freelancers + consultants


We take the work out of connecting so you can accomplish more. Using these proven pro tips will allow you to focus on the most relevant Calendly features so you can get time back for what matters: building your business.

When wearing multiple hats as a business owner, eliminating administrative work and building lasting client and partner relationships are essential to growth. Calendly helps you manage a full schedule with ease while focusing on your top priorities. Cut down on email traffic by automating how you schedule appointments and never double-book or miss a meeting again.

Build better client and partner relationships

  1. Eliminate drop-off in the sales process to grow your customer base. Once a prospect fills out your existing inquiry form, direct them to a scheduling page automatically so they can schedule at the height of their interest. Use Calendly as the call-to-action in campaigns and emails to empower interested prospects to schedule so they can learn more about your offering.
  2. Improve client satisfaction and retention. Enhance the client experience by allowing them to schedule quickly, whenever they need your services. Embed Calendly on your website so clients have open access, use your Calendly link in email correspondence or leverage Calendly for Chrome to open up more availability for high-priority clients. Communicate with clients remotely using GoToMeeting and other web conferencing, and never worry about miscommunicating across time zones with Calendly’s automatic time zone detection.

  3. Collect payments up front. Using Calendly’s Stripe or PayPal integration, your clients can submit payment as soon as they schedule. Relieve the burden of billing, reduce no-shows and ensure you meet with clients who are serious about your services.

  4. Automate tasks to accomplish more. Set up email or text reminders to reduce no-shows and provide meeting information like the location or web conferencing link, use buffers to add extra time before or after an event and use daily limits to cap how many meetings you take per day.
