CalendarSnack.com DIY Web Form Video’s Released

( Thanks Arnie for the Cool Banner – BTW ) .


We launched just a few days ago and are receiving good feedback.  We are working on the the various embedded Modals for Web page insertion to be auto generated.   We have to figure out the hard stuff first and have been busting down the Calendar Clients into smaller pieces using ERE’s and Lambda’s to help accomplish the complicated tasks of the various clients to use calendar create and calendar consumption persona’s for the various devices.  

In addition we did a recap this weekend of our beta release with some You Tube Video’s that can be found on the CalendarSnack.com site here.   This series is focused on how to build out your own Web Form in Word Press and insert the CalendarSnack Event code into a Calendar invitation form for self enabled invitations off any web property to amp up your attendance.  The form allows a customer to send a calendar invite directly to their calendar and we track that for each one off event for the marketeer providing rich detailed big data of the event.

Click to Calendar: Countdown Clock Example

November 26, 2016 / Arnie McKinnis  / 

We created an example (using standard tools like WordPress and little Javascript) to create a direct to calendar invite with a countdown clock.  How it was built, and what it does is described further down, just realize, this is doable today …

1) create the event in 31Events
2) copy & paste the code
3) your site visitors (however you drive traffic to that landing page) are presented with a single input box and button
4) fill in their email address, and they get a CALENDAR INVITATION 

Simple. Your Event, Their Calendar, One Click.

31Events: how we built the page

the build

31Events Embed: 
simple input box with submit button, we provide the iframe code, copy from your 31Events admin page and paste within any HTML web page

Page:
WordPress: within our theme, we have a page template specifically for demo example pages, it has not footer or header (you can use any page template within your site)
WP Plugin – Elementor: I personally can’t say enough about Elementor, it is pure drag-n-drop and simple to use.
Background & Animation – Coverr.co: the background video was available through another great free design resource, check them out to find all sorts of free video backgrounds
Countdown Clock: to create the count-down clock, I had to use a little HTML, CSS and Javascript magic – but I found it by a really quick search, and embedded it as HTML on the webpage.

October 18, 2016 / Arnie McKinnis  / 

This is a Coupon in Email I received today from one of my favorite Bagel makers.  You can build a Coupon Calendar Invite in 31events , add the Coupon as a Gif Image , and the coupon would be a URL to Click thru when the Alarm went off in your Mobile Calendar. 

For more on how to build one see our Get started page

This should work in an Calendar Invite with the Coupon as a URL.
