Are you using scheduling apps like Calendly, Square, or Zoho?
I know that for me, having the ability to sync my business calendar with a requested appointment is HUGE and not having to go back and forth to find the perfect meeting time is such a time saver. But do you know how to use your third party scheduling app effectively?
Studies show that you are THREE TIMES more likely to get a booking on your business calendar if you do THIS ONE THING.
Are you ready for it?
Do I have your attention?
INSTEAD of saying “Yes! I’d love to meet with you, please grab a time slot on my business calendar below” (which I have definitely been guilty of)
“I have Monday, November 14 or Wednesday, November 16 at 10:30AM or 2:00PM available, which of these times works best for you?”
This helps your client / recipient to feel like you have actually LOOKED at your business calendar and that they aren’t being YOUR assistant and having to do all the work of setting up the meeting. It shows intention and also gives them a time frame of how quickly you are looking to meet with them!
That’s it! Pick out a couple of times that work for YOUR schedule and offer them directly to your client. THREE TIMES more likely to get that meeting.
