Jeremy Milliner


You’ve got a busy schedule. Making ends meet is hard enough without having to log your conversations, add meetings to your to-do list, or spend time meticulously setting up virtual conference rooms.


Calendly takes care of all the tedious micromanagement of your work life so that you can spend your time preparing the important stuff. Think of it as your own personal secretary, helping you plan your itinerary and schedule meetings without the back-and-forth of countless emails.

Calendly makes it easier to access, share, and manage events both far in the future, and sudden and unexpected. You can even send them as a one-click booking experience. Check it out today on the Chrome Store, and see why it’s the go-to organization and scheduling tool for loads of people.

How it works

Time management is something we all struggle with, and it only gets harder the higher you are in the company ladder. Chief Marketing Officers have a tendency not to last more than a few years in their position, with the average tenure being just 44 months. Many CMOs stumble early in their new role solely because there are so many threads to keep track of. Calendly is a secret tool in your back pocket that partitions your daily work effectively and uniquely for you. Take a peek at the strategy:

Calendly works by seamlessly integrating itself with your digital schedules such as Google, Outlook, Office 365, or iCloud. It flags any double-bookings, and works with your selected calendars to automatically check availability to help you professionally connect with clients, contacts, and prospects. You can allow invitees to schedule individual slots (or multiple team members at once) to take the burden off your own shoulders, and create and manage all kinds of meetings, no matter how large a team you’re working with. If you like to host webinar events, Calendly is simply a must-have. For a more in-depth walkthrough of all Calendly’s specific features, check the full rundown on their website here.

Control your own experience

The best thing about Calendly is that it offers complete customization no matter what kind of business you’re working in, or what kind of relationship you have with your co-workers. You can elect to have Calendly send confirmation and reminder emails to your team so that you don’t have to do it in person (this is super helpful in improving no-show rates), and customize your alerts to account for a comfortable buffer time before the meeting officially starts. You can even use Calendly to cap the number of meetings allowed per day. It keeps track so you don’t have to.
