Use the Leadpages' Calendly Widget to easily connect with your community
For growing businesses and crazy-busy professionals, the Calendly widget makes it easy to keep in touch with your community, improve your marketing funnel, and cut down on the administration time it takes to find a meeting time that works for both parties.
By embedding your schedule directly on your landing page or thank-you page, you can easily prompt your web visitors to book an available time with you right then and there—when they’re most interested in your offer and most likely to convert.
Already the Leadpages Calendly widget has been used in dozens of different applications to support a variety of lead generation and customer-engagement campaigns.
Here are just a few ideas to help get you started:
Grow your Email List by Offering a Free Consultation
Professional service providers—from life coaches to fitness trainers, financial planners to interior decorators—know that free consultations work wonders when it comes to growing an email list and pre-qualifying leads. Simply offer a free consultation as a lead magnet and invite registrants to book a time directly on the thank you page.
Pro Tip: Save Your Free Consultation for a Retargeting Campaign
Offering personal consultations is an excellent way to meaningfully connect with clients, showcase your ability to provide value, and convert leads into customers. The problem is—who has time for all that? By reserving your 1:1 consultations for retargeting audiences or existing leads (rather than cold traffic), not only will you enjoy a higher conversion rate but you’ll also focus your time on audiences who are most likely to pay you at the end of the day
Connect With Your Community With Streamlined Appointment Scheduling
The Calendly Widget is a wonderful way to eliminate administrative headaches (and reduce the need to hire a virtual assistant). Simply embed your Calendly page on a landing page and share it with the key members of your community who need to book one-on-one time with you.
You might use it to:
- Discuss partnership opportunities with adjacent businesses
- Chat with a guest blogger or podcast guest to nail down the details of your campaign or collaboration
- Interview a customer for a potential case study
- Check-in with a third-party vendor, freelancer, or contractor
The possibilities are endless and the time-savings are magnificent.
Not to mention that by offering an online scheduling tool embedded beautifully on your branded landing page, you win major credibility points right off the bat.

Try these ideal landing page templates for the Calendly Widget
The Calendly widget can easily be used on any Leadpages landing page, but we’ve put together a few new template designs to help you hit the ground running.
Here’s how to embed Calendly right on your landing pages:
Calendly makes it easy for you to find the right time and Leadpages makes it easy to find the right place to share your availability. Depending on the type of audience and campaign you’re crafting, you’ll find lots of flexibility for how you can deploy this feature.
Showcase your scheduling page in one of three ways: embedded directly on the page, or as a pop-up that triggers from the click of a button or hyperlink text.
Let’s show you how that’s done:
Embed your full scheduling page directly on the page.
Locate the new Calendly widget from the widget sidebar within the Leadpages builder. Simply drag and drop it onto the page, paste your Calendly link directly into the widget, and voila! You’re good to go.
Trigger your scheduling page pop-up from the click of a button.
When booking time is the primary call to action on a page, set your button action to display your Calendly page within a pop-up (sometimes referred to as a lightbox). Simply hover over the button you’d like to enable, select ‘Add Click Event,’ and ‘Open a Calendly pop-up’ in the drop-down menu. Paste in your Calendly link and you’re all set!
Trigger your scheduling page pop-up from a hyperlink on the page.
Want to keep your availability present but a little less prominent? Include it as a text hyperlink. Simply highlight the text you’d like to use as an anchor, and select the link icon, then choose ‘Open a Calendly Pop-up’ from the drop-down menu. Paste in your Calendly link and you’re all set!
Want to see how sleek your scheduling page looks across mobile devices?
Your Calendly Widget is mobile responsive and will adjust to display beautifully across different tablets and smartphones. Inside the Leadpages builder, select ‘preview’ and take a peek at what your audience will see when they land on your page.
