Want a sneak preview at a new, awesome feature? (“Sneak preview” = “early alpha”)
For event organizers and venues that host events, there is now a WordPress plugin that uses the Eventification API, turning any WordPress-powered site into an event site! The plugin automatically creates pages for upcoming events, giving organizers and venues a landing page for events within their own sites, while harnessing all the traffic and SEO. Attendees see the site’s normal template and navigation, helping them find useful information about the event, organization, or venue.
Why invest time and effort into creating a tool that keeps visitors on organizers’ sites instead of directing them all to Eventification.com? They may or may not include links to Eventification on their event pages, but even if they don’t, making event organizers lives easier can help Eventification tremendously.At the end of the day, if organizers use Eventification as their starting point for promoting their events online, Eventification will become a better resource for people looking for local events. Any traffic organizers send back to Eventification is merely icing on the cake.
Check out the Eventification WordPress Plugin on GitHub, and make sure to check back occasionally for updates!
