HOW TO INTEGRATE CALENDLY WITH DIVI
How to integrate Calendly with DIVIWhat is your overall web goal? For many of my clients who are online coaches and other service providers, it is to get a potential client on a consult or sales call. So they can really start to understand their clients’ needs and how they can help and support them. So it is key to design into their website an effective and easy way for people to schedule a call.
Of course, there are a bunch of amazing scheduling tools out there, and a commonly used one is Calendly (link). It’s also currently my personal favorite. From a user perspective, it’s super easy to use and looks great. From my perspective, it has some cool features such as automatically checking availability in my Google calendar. It also factors in both buffer times before and after a call and allows for a daily limit on the number of meetings booked in. In summary, they have really thought through how a tool like this affects the user in terms of not only time management but also task management. What’s not to love?
So your web goal is to get more clients on the phone, and you know the tool you are going to use. Now it’s time to drop the barriers. From my college days, this would have been called “barriers to entry.” I like to think about it as how to get an easy yes. Nowadays, we need to make sure design elements are scroll stopping and action-taking. Or in basic terms, the more effort someone has to put into the schedule a call with you, the less likely they will be to actually do it.
So the obvious solution is to embed the tool into your site, encouraging visitors to stay on your site for longer and to check out more of your site. And when we think about how traffic comes to your site, this means embedding the tool in all the right places, e.g., blog posts, thank you pages, secret offer pages—not just your service/work with me page.
How To Integrate Calendly As A Button Into Divi
1. Add a button module. 2. Create a clear call to action, such as “SCHEDULE A CALL.” The key here is to make the action you want the visitor to take a no-brainer. In the UK, we have a phrase for this, “It does exactly what it says on the tin.” Because a confused visitor equals no action taken and lost opportunities. 3. Grab your Calendly URL link. It will look something like this https://calendly.com/name. To find yours, login to Calendly, click on ACCOUNT, click on SHARE YOUR LINK, and grab the one you need. 4. In the DIVI button module, paste that link in LINK > BUTTON LINK URL.

On that drop-down, select ADD TO WEBSITE and follow the instruction above.
