Upcoming Events Feature

automate your upcoming events for just £25 a year

It’s important that you try to keep your website up to date – it shows customers and return visitors that you’re on top of your business and are interested in keeping them informed – but it’s easy to forget.

For pubs, clubs, societies, fitness trainers, cafes, associations – and many other businesses that have a lot going on – a really useful website feature is ‘automated events’.

For just £25 a year it takes a lot of the stress away. Once you’ve added an event, added a date and description and popped a featured image in, it’ll take care of itself.

⦿ automate upcoming events ⦿

Upcoming events are displayed by date so that customers can easily see what’s coming up. When the event date has passed, you can set it to be recycled, moved to a ‘past events’ section or removed from the website completely. All of this is looked after automatically and saves you having to keep checking your events area.

⦿ filter events into categories ⦿

Events may be arranged into different categories so that you can use specific categories in certain areas of your website.

For example, let’s say you run a pub – you might wish to separate social events (e.g live bands, comedy acts, quiz nights) from food events (e.g Sunday lunch, Mother’s Day, Christmas menu etc.). Simply by creating one category called ‘Social Events’ and another called ‘Food’ you can choose which category to use.

Imagine that you have a page dedicated to social events – you wouldn’t want to display the food category on that page; by filtering categories you can choose to separate ‘social events’ and ‘food’ events:

Social Events

In this section we’ve filtered upcoming events into a ‘Social Events’ category. 

Food

In this section we’ve filtered  events into a ‘Food’ category.

⦿ present your events as a slider ⦿

Your events can be presented in a number of ways – the slider option really grabs attention.

⦿ present your events as a list ⦿

Your events can be presented as a list, handy if you want to use large images for impact or if you have lots of information to include.

Social Events

⦿ present your events – 2 columns ⦿

Your events can be presented as a grid – this example shows a 2-column grid. As the first event passes, the second event will shift into its place and a third will come into view.

⦿ present your events – 3 columns ⦿

This example shows a 3-column grid. As the first event passes, the next two will shift to the left and a forth will come into view.

⦿ present your events – 4 columns ⦿

This example shows a 4-column grid. You can choose to display more than four events if you wish – and if you have lots of upcoming events this one’s particularly good at showing off how busy you are!

⦿ present your events – 2 columns with icons ⦿

There are lots of other ways to display upcoming events on your website – just as an idea here’s another way of displaying four events. If you’d like to see even more examples please let us know and we’ll be happy to go through the options with you.
