Get started – the obligatory first sentence that tells you what the article is about!
At Community Meets our goal is to help you better connect with your audience or members. Get an event out there is one thing, bring people together is where we come in.
As an Organiser, we realise your end goals will vary, so not only can simply Post an Event, you can also Start a Group and organise group activities. Either way, you’ll have access to smart tools that will help you get your next event out there!
Straight forward event listing
As an event organiser, if you’re looking for an easy way to list an promote your events, follow this link to get started. You’ll be prompted to enter some basic information which will in turn land on your new Organisers page. This is a hidden page where you will create and manage your events, be they one-off, recurring, online or offline.
As part of the setup process, you’ll also be prompted to post your first event.
For all events, you have access to the following registration options,
- Attendee must register on the activity page,
- Direct attendees offsite to 3rd party booking page, or
- Registration not required.
Each of your events will be marked on an activity page calendar and members will be able to follow you, to receive invitations to your upcoming events.
If you are posting events on a regular basis, contact us to upgrade to an ‘About us’ page. These are searchable (visible) pages on the Community Meets site, they come with there own URL and members will be able to learn more about you.
Start a Group
Wanting to start a new group, or looking for better way to manage an existing group? Your in the right place. At Community Meets you can setup Interest, Hobby or Community Groups. This is a great way to rally people together.
Here you also have access to truck loads of smart tools, allowing you to,
- Organise one-off, recurring, online and offline activities
- Import contacts and list, setup contact folders
- Grant various levels of administrator access
- Activate event waitlists…..
Interest and hobby groups use the same logic, Community groups differ, here the focus here is on making it easy for people to find, follow and contribute events. Not only can you post your own events, but when the Contributor feature is active, members will be able to:
- Start Groups and setup Organiser pages at the Community page,
- Share events occurring elsewhere on the site to the Community page
When members submit an event, you’ll have an opportunity to review and approve it, before it feeds into your activity list.
All contributors will be listed at the Community page, they can be assigned various levels of access and be upgraded to run sub-communities. Imagine all your communities events, easily accessible in one convenient location!
