Best ways to share your calendar link
1. Share your calendar availability through mail:
No more back and forth emails about the best-suited timeframe for the meetings, simply copy and paste the link in your message. By sharing your calendar link in the emails, your client or invitee could directly choose the time they're comfortable with while also checking your availability. This is the most famous and preferred type of calendar link sharing used to schedule appointments for a one-on-one booking.
Best practices to pass messages on while sharing your calendar link through the mail are:
For Sales discovery call:
“Thank you for showing your interest in our product. We would be glad to show you around our services and know about your requirements to see how best our product could fit in. Click on the link to schedule an appointment at your convenient time.”
For Customer service:
“Thanks so much for reaching out! Just confirming that we’ve received your request for more information and will be in touch within [XX] hours with a more complete response. If you need immediate assistance, feel free to schedule a call/ meeting with this link.”
“Glad you showed interest in our firm. Let's schedule an interview and discuss the suitability and the details of the job for you. Click here(link) to schedule the meeting at your convenient time.”
For informal and general meetings:
“I would love to discuss more about this in a call. Here’s my scheduling link to plan a meeting at your most suitable time.”

“Here's my scheduling link to avoid the complexity of booking meetings and to reduce time.”
2. In your professional site:

3. Add your calendar link in chatbots:
Chatbots are programmed to interact with your customers to answer your product’s primary and most frequently asked questions. But to give a better understanding to the user about your service or product and provide detailed insights, one-one meetings, and conversations takeover. Build the bridge between these extremes by embedding your calendar link in your chatbot. By adding your calendar link in chatbots, you save your clients time by not searching for the scheduling link throughout the website.
4. Inside a blog post:
Inside a blog post about your product or service, add your calendar links to let your audience book a trial or an appointment.

This would grow the number of unique customer appointments for your product or service.
5. To specific groups of people:
In many cases, you only want to share your availability and booking links with particular people. For example, if you’re going to schedule a meeting consisting of people who graduated in IT only, then sharing your link in public places like a blog or your website is not ideal. To filter people, you could use forms that have filter logic, and you could direct people who answered in a specific way to book appointments by sharing your calendar link at the end.
