With the help of DP&L , DaytonMostMetro.com is proud to offer a new and exciting tool to area non-profit organizations that will help them promote their events AND have one comprehensive community calendar to reference when scheduling events.
Event Calendars – The Challenge
Organizations that are planning events often find it challenging to select the perfect dates for their events, as there are so many competing events happening every day across the region. This is particularly an issue when two or more organizations plan a fund-raising event on the same day, thus diluting their potential audience. Until now, planners had no single resource to reference that would help them determine the best event dates.
Additionally – even if your organization has an event calendar on its website, how many people are actually viewing that calendar? Wouldn’t it be more effective to list your important public events on a master community calendar that is viewed by thousands of people?
DMM Event Calendar – Solution #1
Best option for those organizations that have few public events per year OR have a custom online calendar on their websites that they don’t wish to change.
DaytonMostMetro.com features a robust and comprehensive online calendar for all public events happening across the Dayton Region – we ARE the master community calendar! Anybody can submit events, and with the help of our sponsors like the DP&L Foundation we are able to offer this promotional tool free to venues and organizations. You can currently submit events by filling out our free event submit form (click here). The form is self-intuitive, and events are published within 24 hours. This solution is great for organizations that only plan a few events a year or less, and/or do not wish to feature an online calendar on their websites. Our event calendar is the most visited section of our website and one of the most popular in the region; it is already being used by various groups as a scheduling tool in addition to a free promotional tool.
We encourage all organizations and venues to submit their events as far as in advance as possible so that other organizations can plan their own events accordingly. Changes can always be made by letting us know.
DMM Event Calendar – Solution #2
Best option for those organizations that wish to promote several public events per year AND would like a FREE and EASY TO USE online calendar on their websites.
DaytonMostMetro.com has developed a comprehensive community calendar that is not only a highly-viewed section of the DaytonMostMetro.com website, but is also syndicated on several other websites. The DMM Event Calendar Widget goes one step further as it acts as an integrated online calendar for an organization’s website, managed by the organization. While only that organization’s events are listed on its website, the event data is stored in a single database for the entire region which allows DaytonMostMetro.com to promote all events happening in the region.
Implementing our calendar widget is easy – we’ll provide you with a simple line of code that you can add to your webpage. That line of code will do all the work with communicating with our event database and displaying only YOUR events on your website. Anybody that has access to create/edit a webpage on your website can handle this – no technical skills are required!
Here are some examples of organizations that are currently using the DMM Event Calendar Widget:
