How to Embed Calendars Natively Into Your Interactive Videos

How to embed calendars vatively into your Mindstamp videos

Coordinating time to set meetings with clients or prospects can be a pesky task— who wants to exchange countless emails just to figure out a time that works for everyone? In today’s digital age, setting up meeting times has never been easier with online scheduling platforms that make it convenient to find and book a time when both parties are available.

Mindstamp’s interactive video platform makes it one step easier by allowing the option to embed calendars from top scheduling sites like Calendly and HubSpot directly into your interactive videos to create an end-to-end scheduling process — meaning your viewers don’t have to leave your video content to schedule a time to meet with you. By offering a seamless way to schedule time with a sales representative, for instance, you can help engaged prospects move forward with their buying process. 

While interactive video is a great way to engage buyers at all stages of the sales funnel, 60 percent of buyers prefer to communicate with a representative during their consideration stage, after they’ve done their own research. Therefore, it's essential to offer those in the consideration phase a simple way to get in touch with a member of your team to ask questions and guide clients down the funnel.
