Evvnt Users and Accounts
Our calendar system is used on over a thousand local media and event sites across the globe. When you post an event to a calendar page that is "Powered by Evvnt", you will be asked to create an account in our system.
Your account will belong to the site that accepts your first event. The owner of your user determines the following:
- The logo and color scheme of our notifications to you
- The site where we will attempt to post your event when you post for free
- The site where we will feature your event when you upgrade to premium.
You can still post to sites other than the one that owns your user. See more here: Can I post to a different publication for my events?
If you find that you have a user assigned to a site that is no longer relevant to your event locations, then you can submit a request to Evvnt support to have your user assigned to another site. This will make it easier to post to the same site with all your events.
Creating Events on an Evvnt Calendar
If you are posting for the first time, then you can follow this guidance here: How to submit an event
If you have already posted to our system before, then you will be asked to login before you can post your event. You can login first at this generic login page and we will connect you to your account so you can post to the same publication. If you want to post to a site other than the one that owns your user, you can do that by starting your post on that site.
Our calendars will need to show an image with every event so we recommend having your own image when you are ready to post your event. If you don't have an image, we can recommend finding a free image that you have the right to use. There are many sites that offer free downloads of 'rights free' images.
Not sure if your event was accepted at the site you posted to? Click to see the "Live View" of your event from your "My Events" page when you are logged in.
Multi-day and Repeating Events
If you would like to post a series of events then you need to post the first event date. Once that first date is posted, you will have an option to add more dates from the event's "Manage" option. See more info here: Posting a recurring event, events with multiple dates.
If you are posting a long-term event, like a gallery or exhibit that goes on for many days, then please review the details here about how and when our system will show your multiday event.
Benefits of a Premium Event
You will be asked to "Upgrade" your event or make it a "Premium" event. This is our signature service that will syndicate your event, sending the event info you have provided our system to dozens of sites. We have saved hundreds of thousands of event creators countless hours of posting by syndicating premium events for our customers.
Some of the sites to which we will send your premium event are local calendars that local viewers will see. Other sites are national or global sites that may not get viewed by people in your area, BUT these extra sites will mean your event will be more likely to show up at the top of search engine results when people search for events in your area.
When you upgrade to a premium event, one of the benefits is that the site you posted to will feature your event on their calendar. We will post your event to other calendars, but feature it on the main site. This means your event will appear at the top of the calendar and may appear on several other pages on that site. More info here about Featured Events.
In most cases, when the calendar site belongs to a print publication, being a featured event on that site will mean your event will be included in the print page. This is not guaranteed, as editors have discretion to reject any event. Also, print pages may be created up to 10 days in advance of printing, and an event may not have been posted in time to be included in print. It is recommended that you reach out to the editors of a publication if you have concerns about your event being included in print.
Prices for Premium Events are determined by the categories selected for the event. This is all done automatically by picking the category you'd like to be found under. You can select more than one category, but be aware we will pick the top price tier when you select more than one category. See more info here about how we determine the prices for Premium Events.
Subscriptions = Savings
If you post multiple events on a regular basis, you should consider subscribing to our service. A subscription will give you new premium event credits every month that you can use to post new events. Post anytime, and then upgrade when you get new credits at the start of your billing cycle. You can get savings up to 50% on every event you upgrade with your subscription credits. More information about subscriptions here.
Email Marketing, YES!
Posting your event to any Evvnt calendar will give you access to our Premium Email feature. Tap into the leading email marketing system, Site Impact, and schedule an email that we can send to thousands of email subscribers. All of these emails have opted in to receiving event information, they are confirmed to reside in or around the area of your event, and they are filtered by interest related to the category you select for your event.
We create the email from your event post, you pick the date and time to send the email, and you pick the size of the audience around your event location. Once your email is sent, we will immediately update in real-time analytics on opens and clicks. Check out the preview email for free and browse the audience sizes available to you.
