2018 – Update – I left this post in here. We are now using AWS and getting ready to release the way we are doing calendar invites under our new “HeadLess Calendar” Interface. That is using your Calender client on your Mobile Phone or LaptopWe have been working hard on trying to keep this simple. A One Click Call to Action Button. We are still doing Call to action for Web and Email.
Here is the workflow with our code in an Email Template for MailChimp, Constant Contact or Exact Target.
Was it hard to do?
No- takes about 10 minutes to generate the code for the calendar invite and test.
What do your customers get?– A one click Call to Action button to a webinar, event or promotion. You can include coupons if you want in the Calendar Invite, Address for google maps integration, web conference call information – etc, and use all the great reminders of the native Calendar specification for the Mobile phone to make sure they attend.
What do you get?–Better signup responses because its on their calendar, better per event tracking and reporting.
Your Call to Action – Get and account and give it a try.
