If you’ve ever had to schedule calls and meetings for your business, you’ve undoubtedly experienced some friction along the way—as we have. That’s why we chose to build TimeSync. As we shared the scheduling link for other uses, like recruitment, we noticed that the power of this scheduling tool lies in the sharing process itself.
Aside from the common methods of scheduling sales meetings, TimeSync can also be used in myriad ways to schedule different types of meetings and calls.
Here are some meeting scheduler use cases, and best practices to impress your invitees and get your calendar filled up!
Meeting scheduler use cases: When should you share your scheduling link?
Once you’ve started a conversation with a prospect and established rapport, you may decide to further engage them with a meeting.
To set up said meeting, you can offer your available times to meet by simply sharing your scheduling link, instead of manually checking your own calendar for available slots in a wearisome back-and-forth.
Common ways of sharing your link are through emails or chat. For work purposes, we communicate through email and add the link in the email content.
This allows your prospect to schedule a time when both of you are available without any further back-and-forth emails!
Here are some email templates with scheduling link to use for different scenarios
We’ve created several templates for you to adapt for your own needs. These are message templates that we use ourselves internally as well, and it showcases the value of your new NovoMeet scheduling link.
Here’s a (non-exhaustive) list of common meeting types.
Using for a first sales call (sales discovery):
I saw that you are interested to find out more about (your product/service). Let’s schedule a chat to talk more about your needs. Here’s my availability (insert scheduling link) so we can reach you as soon as possible.
Hey (first name), how’s everything coming along with (your product/service)? I’d love to help more, you can book a call with me through my link (insert scheduling link).
Recruitment & screening candidates:
Hi (first name), thank you for your interest in (job position) with (company). I’d like to learn more about your background, experience, and qualification through a short phone conversation. Here’s my availability (insert scheduling link) for this week. Looking forward to speaking with you!
Office Hours (Academic):
Hi (first name), let’s have a short meeting at my office to discuss your questions on the (insert class, assignment, projects). Please book a time slot here (insert scheduling link) and let me know any questions you have beforehand so that I can prepare.
Upcoming Events or Conference:
Hi (first name), it would be great to chat further when we meet at (insert event). Shall we schedule a fixed time to chat on the first day? Here’s my availability, (insert scheduling link) would you choose the time that works best for you? Looking forward to speaking with you!
Adding in your scheduling link in your email signature works wonders in providing a super-easy way for your prospects to book a call with you, especially when doing sales.
Adding your scheduling link into your name cards
This is slightly more uncommon, but seeing a QR code on business cards really helps you stand out from the tons of name cards collected at a trade show or event that you were at last month!
Although your business card might have your website or email, making it easier to connect with you online definitely helps keep the conversation going with your prospects. It’s really simple to set up your QR code:
(i) You just need to grab your scheduling link
(ii) Go to a QR code generator (like QR-code-generator.com)
(iii) Paste your link and a QR code will be generated automatically!
Where to set up your scheduling link?
Setting up your first scheduling link is really simple. Here’s what you need to do:
- Log in to your Novocall account. If you don’t have one, you can sign up for free and get full access to the platform so you can try out the above-mentioned templates.
