As someone running a business, consulting service, or any venture that requires scheduling appointments, you are likely familiar with both the convenience and necessity of an efficient booking system. That’s precisely where Calendly comes into play. An automated scheduling tool, Calendly, allows your clients to book appointments based on your pre-set availability. This tool does an excellent job of streamlining the scheduling process and reducing the back-and-forth emails and is easy to add to your WordPress site.
Moreover, if you have a WordPress site, you can connect Calendly directly. This enables your potential clients to schedule appointments without having to leave your website, resulting in more convenience for your users and, ultimately, more bookings for your services. In this blog post, we will walk you through the step-by-step process to connect Calendly to your WordPress site.
Step 1: Get Calendly Embed Code
First, you need to jump over to your Calendly account. Once there, click on the gear icon at the top right corner for ‘settings.’ Select ‘Share & Embed’ from the drop-down menu and click on ‘Embed on your website.’ You’ll be guided on how to customize your event and will receive an embed code at the end of the process.
Step 2: Add Calendly to Your WordPress Site
Now, it’s time to insert this code into your WordPress site. Head over to your WordPress dashboard and select the page where you want the booking system to be.
Once you’re in the WordPress Editor, click on the ‘plus’ button to add a new block. In the search bar, type ‘HTML’ to add a ‘Custom HTML’ block. Paste the Calendly embed code you’ve copied earlier in this block.
Step 3: Customize and Preview
Once you’ve pasted the code, you can add more information as you deem necessary. You might want to add a brief explanation of your scheduling process or what your clients should expect once they’ve scheduled their appointments.
After that, click on ‘Preview’ to see how it looks. If it blends well with the rest of your website’s layout and design, great! If not, feel free to tweak until it does.
Step 4: Publish
Once you’re satisfied with the appearance and functionality, go ahead and click on ‘Publish.’ You’ve successfully connected Calendly with your WordPress site!
