New Course: How to Add an Event Calendar to your WordPress Site


If you’d like to publish a calendar of events on your WordPress website in a beautiful, easy-to-read format, you’ll need an events calendar plugin. But how do you choose from the dozens of event calendar plugins that are available for WordPress? How can you tell which one is best? Even after you decide, how do you promote your events, start accepting RSVPs, or sell tickets?

In this brand new video tutorial series, Brian Hogg will introduce you to TWO of the best event calendar plugins available for WordPress today: The Events Calendar and Event Espresso

How to Use The Events Calendar and Event Espresso

Both of these event calendar plugins will enable you to display the dates, times, and even maps for your events, plus collect attendee details, RSVPs, and more.

But there are also add-ons available to create even more powerful calendars, like shortcodes to promote events anywhere on your site, or even create and send email newsletters, making your events even more successful. In this course, we’ll cover some of the most popular features, and show you how to get even more out of your events.

This course is divided into two sections. Each section contains an complete set of videos dedicated to one of these two popular event calendar plugins. You’ll be able to compare how each plugin tackles the same tasks… then choose which one you want to use on your own site!

In less than 45 minutes, you’ll learn how to:

  • Decide which event calendar plugin is best for you.
  • Download, install, and configure an event calendar plugin for WordPress.
  • Help your visitors find your upcoming events with a link in your site’s menu.
  • Show a map to your event location using Google Maps.
  • Collect payments for your event with PayPal, saving yourself transaction fees for services like Eventbrite.
  • Collect RSVPs, including the name and email address of attendees.
  • Add a list of events to any page, blog post, or widget area on your WordPress site using a shortcode.
  • Create and send an email announcement about your upcoming event with just one click and no errors — because nobody wants to send the wrong time or location of an event!
  • Plus much more!
