With Gist Meetings, your prospects can schedule appointments with you faster and can completely avoid the back-and-forth emails. Your schedule will be in constant sync with your Google calendar, so your prospects will always see your most up-to-date availability.

In this article, we’ve given you a quick overview of Gist profiles and meetings and then walk you through how quick you can get started.

Step 1: Complete your profile

Each member of your team gets a unique and dedicated URL with their profile that they can share with your prospects and connect with your leads and customers by providing a direct line to your business.

The profile page provides essential details about your teammates including a short bio, social links, where they live, whether they are online right now etc. This adds a human touch to your business communication and shows to your prospects that someone on your team is available to help them out.

Step 3: (Optional) Connect your Google calendar

Integrating your Google calendar with Gist meetings will allow your meetings and your calendars to stay in sync. This way, your Gist meetings and your calendar can talk to each other so that if you have created an event in your Google calendar manually or via other tools, your Gist meetings will show you are busy for that time.

Here’s how to integrate with Google calendar: 

  • Go to Profile & Preference, then the Calendar Integration Tab.
  • Click the Connect Calendar button.
  • You will be redirected to Google. Login to the Google account you want to integrate with.
  • Click "Allow" to give the Gist meetings access to your calendar.
  • Select the calendars that will be checked to avoid double bookings.

Now, go ahead and share your profile link and book more meetings and close more deals with less work.
