Decide whether you want your website to be about. Then go for a theme accordingly.

Tips for running a successful events website

There are innumerable tools and techniques that you can add to your WordPress events theme to extend its capabilities. But somehow, the number of features of your website doesn’t matter as much as the usability does.

The thing that matters most is how convenient your website is for the users. How easily they can find the stuff that they are looking for.

Show events on Events Calendar

An event calendar is a graphical approach to show the events on your website. Our WordPress Events themes come with the event calendar widget that you can place on the sidebars (or anywhere you want).

This calendar will show the events marked on a calendar. With this event calendar, it becomes so convenient for the users to find the events based on dates. This helps improve the user experience of your website.

Design logical and affordable price packages

If you are allowing front-end submissions on your website, you will have to decide the pricing plans for the submissions.

Here, creating convenient and affordable pricing plans for your website plays an important role.

Make sure that the pricing plans fits the requirements of all your user classes. For instance, an individual will not plan events very frequently, so you can create a package that fits individuals as such. This can be an economical package, with single submission (or a very small number of submissions. For instance – two or four listing submission, etc).

On the other hand, if an event organizer registers on your website, he would like a package with a large number of submissions.

Basically, plan your packages keeping in mind the requirements of your various user groups. This helps them choose a convenient and affordable option on your website.

Advertisement banners helps you earn

One of the easiest ways to make money through your website is by displaying advertisements on your website. Besides there are services like Google AdSense, that will help you earn by displaying advertisements on your website.

Each of our themes come with a fully widgetized homepage. Because our WordPress themes are flexible enough, you can display advertisements almost anywhere on your website and make money online.

Manage the categories for your event’s website

Categories may seem like an ordinary feature on your website. But it is, in fact, one of the most important modules. For you as an admin, Categories are a way that the content on your website is classified and organized. For the users, on the other hand, the categories are a way to let them quickly find whatever they are looking for.

So when you are adding categories for events on your website, you should be a little extra careful.

  • Include all the categories for all the types of events your website will show
  • Make sure that the categories have a concise meaning
  • Strictly avoid repetitive categories
  • Organize the types under a category as sub-categories

Check that the content on your site is legit and organized

Once your website is online, you need to keep a check on how it’s performing. Ensure that your website is easy to use and search.

If you are allowing front-end submissions on your website, make sure that the listings added by the registered users are complete and admissible.

If you find an event with incomplete information, take the necessary steps to ensure that the listings are meaningful.

Make sure that the events are added under proper categories so that the users searching for events based on categories can find it. For this, you can hold back the events listings for moderation. So when the users submit their events, they will be saved as drafts. You can check the events and then publish the events.

Add high-quality relevant images

Images are inarguably more expressive than words. Again using attractive and high-quality images on your website makes it more intuitive.

Always try to add images, you can add images of the event venues, the performer/speaker of the event, or images of any relevant subject. You can encourage your users to submit images for their events listings. If it’s a recurring event, you can display pictures of previous sessions of the event.

Multimedia surely helps make things easier to understand. Therefore, you can even go for videos on your website.

Menus and navigation facilitate your visitors.

The navigation system of your website essentially guides a visitor through your website. All the links to the important pages on your website should be shown on the homepage of your site.

Arrange the important links of your website as menu and sub menu items. If necessary, you can also use the Call to Action section to make your users take immediate action.

SEO is VERY important

We all want visibility for our websites, don’t we? After all, what is the use of a website if it does not reach the intended users. But how do we ensure that the website reaches the targeted audience? SEO does that.

So, on account of SEO, the very first thing to take care of is to ensure that you choose an SEO friendly event WordPress theme. Along with great design, easy and intuitive options to manage your website, choose a theme that is coded with strict SEO practices.

Moreover, you can use optimized images and use the SEO plugins. There are so many WordPress SEO plugins that you can integrate into your event’s website. These plugins will help you optimize the content of your website and make it more search friendly.
