Less Work, More Results

The days of your events page playing second fiddle to the rest of your website are over. Our embeddable widgets and powerful API allow you to easily share your events anywhere on your site, including your homepage.


Greenville Calendar Widget

Instead of having a static 30-day calendar grid view, we make your events SEO friendly with a dedicated page for each event, allowing users to click and view more information.

By having more pages, social sharing functions, and the opportunity to incorporate keywords into your descriptions, your events will be loved by search engines.
