Adding your first event to the calendar

So you have created an account on the site and have been able to login for the first time.

Now you want to add your first event.

This will walk you through the process of using the event calendar for the first time…

Here’s a video walk-thru that will take twice as long to watch as it will for you to create your first event!

This video starts at the top – logging in and ends with submitting….

Your event will need to be approved by an admin before it is visible, usually within 12 hours.

Let’s do it!

Once logged in, select the EVENTS option from the menu on the left and ADD EVENT.

Create an event title – Use some variation of your name and the venue for extra points! For example: Hot As A Pepper at Old School Tavern.

Next you need an informative description. It can be as simple as you want such as “We’re making our debut at Old School Tavern”, however, the more info you enter, the easier it is for people to discover what you are about, what will be going on! This is your chance to talk them into going to your show instead of the others on the calendar site.

You will need to select a venue (you can add one if it is not there already)

CREATE an event organizer (you only have to do this ONCE) – this tells about YOU! It links all events you enter to YOU as the organizer, and allows you to edit or delete them. You can also manage multiple bands, or venues using this one event organizer!

Set a date and time to start, as well as when it will end. NOTE – it defaults to AM!

Set the options for smoking, age, food…. These 3 are very important since many people search for venues with live music that are NON-Smoking and have food. Some are searching for places that they can take their kids to.

Set a cover charge if any.

Next, set some tags – create one for you that makes it easy to find YOUR shows such as if your band is “Hot As A Pepper”, consider using that, or “HAAP” or even your own name.

Be sure to pick some event categories!!!!! These make it easy to find when people search!

Finally, add an event graphic – it can be your logo. You only have to upload it once, it will be there for you next time!
