Highlighted features:

  • Enable users to schedule appointments without leaving your platform
  • Make the most of your consultations, sales calls, and more for your online business – integrate it as part of your sales funnel to increase your conversion rate
  • Display your real-time calendar right on your website – less time wasted on the back and forth dialogue attempting to schedule a meeting
  • Select the information you would like to retrieve from your guests when they go to schedule an appointment with you
  • Use automation to prevent no-shows: send automated reminders to your users

Follow these 6 simple steps to embed an appointment scheduling widget on your Leadpages website.

  1. Sign up for AppointmentThing.com
    Go to AppointmentThing.com and click “Sign up”. There’s a free two-week trial of the Pro Plan available when you sign up (with no credit card required), and when that’s over, you can keep using the free plan forever.
  2. Set up the Appointment Types you want to offer and the times you are available
    Within the scheduling app, you can set different appointment types for different services you offer or you could just offer customers a choice of meeting lengths. You can also offer just one appointment type if you want to keep it really simple.
    • Navigate to the ‘Appointment Types’ page on AppointmentThing.com

    • Create a new “Appointment Type” (or select one of your existing “Appointment Types”).
    • Enter your appointment details in the “About” tab, and set your appointment availability in the “Availability” tab.
    • When you’ve created the appointment type, navigate back to the “Appointment Types”.
  3. Copy the link or embed code to your booking page
    Copy your link or embed code to your general appointment booking page if you want to offer more than one appointment type, or to a specific appointment type otherwise.
    • Click the “Embed” icon as shown in the image below

    • You will now see a new window. Select the “Inline Embed” option. Select the Appointment Types you want to embed on your Leadpages website, and copy the widget code.

  4. Paste your link into the Leadpages website editor.
    Log into your account on Leadpages.com (or click signup if you don’t already have a Leadpages account). Open the Leadpages editor and choose which web page you want to embed the appointment booking form on. Click “Add” in the left-hand side menu, choose “Embed” from the list of options and “Custom embed” as the type. Click on “Embed a site” and the element will appear on your website. You can drag the element to where it needs to go. Once you have the embed added, click the “Enter website address” button and paste in the link you copied earlier from AppointmentThing.

  5. Make sure it looks good
    The last thing to do is to preview the site to make sure it all looks good. If there are scroll bars showing, just resize the area of the embed to make sure it fits. Be sure to check the preview on mobile view also to make sure it still looks good!
  6. You’re good to go!
    Your embeddable appointment booking form is now set up and your users can start scheduling appointments with you right from your Leadpages website!

Use a website builder or landing page builder other than Leadpages where you want to offer online scheduling? AppointmentThing also integrates with most popular website builders like Wix, Squarespace, WordPress, Weebly, Jimdo, Kajabi and more.
