Creating Events on Attendible
In the past year, we have been heads down on perfecting the way event organizers and venues use Attendible to create events. After all, we are a community based calendar and listening to our user’s feedback is one of our top priorities. Setting up your calendar on www.attendible.com is super easy. I will take you through the basic steps here:
1-Sign up on attendible: the first step requires you to sign up on our website. You can either sign up as a user or you can sign up using your business’s name. After signing up, we recommend you edit your profile page.
2- Edit your profile/Calendar: This page will allow you to input all the info about your business. We recommend you use a photo that reflects the vibe of what you do, because that’s the first thing the user will see on Attendible. Providing a small description of what you do is also a great way to make users understand your business. You have the option of sharing your social media profiles like Facebook, Twitter and you can also share your Yelp page.
An example of Showbox profile:
3- Start creating event: After you have set up your profile, you can start creating events.
Things to keep in mind while creating events: you have to select a category for your event. This will help our system group your event under different interests, like Performing Arts, or Meals & Drinks. Hashtags work the same way but are optional and limited to 3 per event.You can pick a photo from your website’s url or upload a new one. Keep in mind that the image has to be a max. of 1MB. Describe what the event is about, sometime an image and a title are not enough. You also have the option of adding many sessions and dates.
PS: Don’t forget to add a ticket URL and Youtube Url, people love watching videos!
Ok you have set up a profile and created an event, what does that mean?
Followers: Your profile just like any other social media profile can be followed. Users who follow your profile will get a weekly digest with your events. Take a look at some of our most followed profiles here: www.attendible.com/seattle/boards
Calendar: You can embed your calendar on your website or blog. We will give you a code that you can use and voila now you have your very own calendar on your website. Attendible offers two calendar views, tile view and month view. Both views are mobile responsive and easy to navigate.
