In this help topic we will discuss the process of adding events to Wedding Connected. Above is a video outlining the whole process but for those who prefer to read, please continue reading below. This feature is only available to Premium members so if you are currently a Basic or Featured member, you will have to upgrade to use this feature.

Events are displayed on our ‘Upcoming Events‘ page. Events are also shown on our events calendar throughout our website. You can add your very own events or you can add events from other businesses.

Some of the reasons why posting events is a great idea are:

  • Good for SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) – Higher in search engines such as Google & Wedding Connected.
  • It’s a great way to get more business and land more clients.
  • It increases your exposure in our directory.
  • You might have a sale at your store or a training workshop and want to advertise this.

So now that we have that out of the way, it’s time to learn how to add coupons to your profile that could potentially be seen by thousands of people. It’s easy, we promise!

Step 1Log in to your Wedding Connected account. Once you are logged in, you should arrive at your Member Dashboard.
Step 2 – On the left side of your Member Dashboard, you will see a menu list of items. Look for ‘Events’ and click that and then click ‘Add Event‘.
Step 3 – At the top of this page you will see an option for ‘Publish’ which will be Yes or No. Make sure you select ‘Yes’ if you want your event to be live on the website.
Step 4 – Upload an image for your event by clicking the ‘Choose file’ button on the right of your screen.
Step 5 – In the ‘Title’ box, enter a title for your event. Try to keep it short and descriptive. (Ex: Melbourne Wedding Expo 2017).
Step 6 – Select a category from the drop down list. This is just a category of what type of event yours would fall into.
Step 7 – Select a date and time that your event starts by using the ‘start date’ box. Do the same for end date.
Step 8 – Enter the ticket cost in the ‘cost to attend’ box. You can leave this blank or write $0 in this box if price is not applicable.
Step 9 – Enter keywords separated by commas in the ‘Enter Keywords’ box. (Ex: wedding expo melbourne 2017,wedding exhibition, etc).
Step 10 – Enter a link into the ‘External Web Link’ box. This could be a link to the actual event on a website or your Facebook page. (This is optional).
Step 11 – Enter a venue name in the ‘Venue Name’ box. (Ex: Melbourne Exhibition Building).
Step 12 – Start typing the event address into the location box above the map, it should automatically start suggesting addresses to you. Click on the correctly suggested address. This feature allows our users to search for events in their area and tells them where your event is to be held.
Step 13 – In the ‘description’ box, enter a description that describes your event in more detail (any terms & conditions, things people should know about the event, etc). Once you have done that, click ‘Save Changes’ and you’re done!
