    Coupling your VideoForm with Calendly gives you an interactive advantage over your competitors:

    1. Integrate Your VideoForm With Calendly 

    You can integrate Calendly with your VideoForm account and add it as a call-to-action to your VideoForm. This can be done in a dozen of scenarios.

    Adding Calendly to your VideoForm is one great way of giving your visitors and clients an easy medium to reach you. 

    2. Set The Right Expectations

    VideoForm lets you exhibit your brand’s personality. This works brilliantly well in setting the tone and context for the meeting with your visitors and clients. For instance, a frantic prospect who lands on to your website would be skeptical about scheduling a sales call or would need an extra push to do so. With VideoForm, you can capture the prospect and give him an insight into your way of working via VideoForm so that he warms up to you and asks for a demo. This is just one example of incorporating Calendly to your sales marketing strategy . There are a couple of ways through which you can use VideoForms and set the right expectations for your client prospect before he schedules a meeting.

    3. Build A Personal Relationship Before The Call

    Phone calls and online conferences do not have the personal touch of physical meetings. Subsequently, they are clouded with awkwardness for the first couple of minutes. But with VideoForm, you can build a personal connection with your visitor or customer before the actual meeting. You can warm the visitor up and give them the heads up of how the meeting would be. This way they would feel more comfortable in phone calls and video conferences as they know who they are talking to and about what.

    4. Answer Queries Face-To-Face Before Your Calendly Meeting

    You can use a combination of pictures, videos, forms and questions to build a VideoForm for your visitor’s sales queries or customer queries. The visitor can then ask their questions even before the scheduled meeting. This way you can understand the prerequisites for the meeting or even answer a few queries before the meeting. And in case the issue/concern does not require a meeting session, then you can resolve it via the VideoForm itself.  

    Besides, such face to face interaction can help you calm down angry customers and buy some extra time to retain your visitors.

    5. Make Your Funnel More Fool-Proof

    By adding Calendly as a call to action to each of your steps in your sales / marketing funnel, you are making the whole process a lot more transparent and conversational. It is a beautiful reminder to your visitors , prospects and clients that you are at their beck and call. It can be a great back up to all your sales pitches too.
