In today’s newsletter, I’ll share how to properly use calendar links to book meetings. By following these steps, you can avoid turning off prospects and discover a better way to use these productivity tools for sales.
Here’s the step-by-step process:
Meeting links should not be included in your outbound sequences. The purpose of a sequence is to get a reply, not to book a meeting. If you include a meeting link in your cold message, you increase the likelihood of being marked as spam, which can significantly reduce your reply rate.
Instead, keep the meeting link as a facilitation tool once a meeting has been agreed upon. For more information on crafting messages with a 38% or higher reply rate, check out this article.
Before asking for a meeting, your goal should be to get a reply. Once you receive a reply, your goal is to schedule a meeting. You can achieve this by following this 4-step process:

If your prospect responds, you can share your availability by using your meeting link. I recommend giving your prospect the option to share their own calendar link or availability, as some may prefer not to share their data.

That’s how you can use calendar links to book outbound cold meetings.
I hope this helps!
