SCHEDULE MEETINGS WITH EASE
No more endless emails to schedule a 15 minute call
As a busy work-at-home dad, I’m always looking for ways to be more efficient with my and my clients time. That’s why I use an online booking form to schedule meetings, calls, and even my podcast interviews. It’s very simple to use and integrates with many online calendars. Just set the hours you want to be available, share the link, and confirm the appointment. It even sends reminder emails and puts the appointment right in my calendar. Get your booking form at www.ScheduleOnce.com. Want to see it in action? Schedule a 15 minute call with me at www.meetme.so/Robbie15.
