Master Your Scheduling
Our time as professionals are valuable chasing people down to schedule appointments, endless back and forth to nail down time is super annoying. However, most people don’t approach using self-scheduling tools in the right way. It is critical to use these tools for the OTHER person’s benefit and not just yours. Also, the placement of these tools in your emails matters.
For example, I place this before my signature and salutation after I request a time to meet with someone:
Great I would love to schedule a time to meet with you is there a good time for us to connect this week?
If it is more convenient for you please feel free to choose a time for us to chat using this easy scheduler link.
9.5 / 10 times people use the self-scheduling tool when I do this!
