Replace Calendly Bookings With Async Conversations
An alternative to Calendly (and similar booking tools) that actually frees up
your calendar with less bookings. ZipMessage replaces live calls with asynchronous conversations.
“ZipMessage has really streamlined my meetings. In 6 weeks, my calendar had only 15 meetings, down from 43 this time last year!”
Sean Pritzkau, Marketing Strategist
4 ways ZipMessage can
replace your Calendly* appointments
* And similar calendar booking tools
1 Async Conversations
Calendly schedules live, in-person meetings.
“This meeting could have been an email.”, says remote employees everywhere.
But email isn’t the same as a face-to-face video meeting.
However, the fact remains, live, in-person, time consuming and inconvenient video meetings are a major energy drain for you and your team.
ZipMessage is asynchronous.
Asynchronous, a.k.a. “Async”, means you don’t need to be live and in-person at the same time. Go back-and-forth at whatever time works best for each person.
That’s what ZipMessage was made for.
It’s face-to-face video messaging software that lets you record your camera, screen, mic, or write text—except it’s all asynchronous!
2 Shareable Links
Calendly links lead to your calendar.
When you share your Calendly booking link, it leads straight to your calendar, where someone else can claim your time.
Sure, you can put parameters around when people can book, but ultimately, they still lead to booked appointments that take your time.
ZipMessage links start conversations without booking time
ZipMessage gives you a similar shareable link (zipmessage.com/your-name) that you can share with anyone.
The difference is when someone visits your link, they can record and send you their message without booking time on your calendar.
Then you can continue your face-to-face (or screen, mic, or text) conversation asynchronously.
3 Better Communication
Live meetings put people on the spot.
When you’re in a live meeting, awkward silences are the worst.
You’re asked a question, and you blurt out the first thought that pops into your mind.
Is that really the best you have to offer, in the moment, on the spot? Maybe not...
ZipMessage provides space to think, then respond.
ZipMessage lets you receive and digest each message when the time is right for you.
Then take time to consider your response, record, edit it, then send.
Everyone can contribute the best they have to offer.
4 Calls at Scale
Your calendar can’t fit many calls.
There are only so many hours in your day, and days in your week. You can’t speak to everyone.
Plus, booking your calendar solid is a recipe for burnout.
Most calendly alternatives don’t get to the root of the problem: Too many live bookings!
ZipMessage scales many face-to-face conversations.
With ZipMessage, you can still have high-fidelity video conversations (screen, mic, text too)—without stacking calendar appointments back-to-back.
That means more conversations, more connections, while reducing the number of appointments on your calendar.
That’s how you scale your conversations.
