If you do not see a confirmation message within 20 minutes of buying an event package, chances are that it’s in your spam folder. It’s a good idea to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your approved senders’ list (address book), and to save the URL of https://events.texasvintageshopper.com to your favorite places.
Enter your username and password that was sent to your email box and login. If you lose your password you can reset it by clicking on “Lost your password”.
Use the email address used when you purchased your event package. Make sure to also check your spam folder if you do not see the reset password email response.
Title and Description
Write a powerful event title. Your title is important and matters. It means the difference in people finding your event in the search. Use Coscheduler Analyzer to analyze your event title. https://coschedule.com/headline-analyzer
People are looking for exciting content of your event to determine if it’s worth their time. With your event description you need to paint a picture of your event with the event description.
- Link to YouTube videos of last year’s event or Instagram photos of the venue.
- Showcase powerful photos from the perspective of your attendees.
- Highlight speakers and workshops.
- Add attendee testimonials.
- Copy and paste your event description into the free Hemingway App to help you make your writing easy to read.
The words in your event description can increase the odds that interested people will discover your event through search engines like Google and Bing — known as search engine optimization (SEO).
Event Time and Date
The All Day Event check box is useful when the event is taking place on a particular date (or dates) – but you don’t really know when, or else feel that it is good enough to say it takes place “all day” without being more specific
While most events are single one-day or multi-day events, there may be times when a series of events, known as recurring events, may be more appropriate. For example:
Events that repeat on an interval, such as weekly flea markets or trade days.
Getting Started with Recurring Events
Let’s begin with the Time & Date settings for your event. This applies whether you’re converting an existing single event into an event series or creating a new event series from scratch.
With recurring events, the first occurrence of your event series will reflect the options chosen for Start/End under this heading. That is the same as creating a single event. Be sure that you’ve specified the correct start date, end date, and start and end times for the first event in your series before proceeding.
After making your selections for the first event in your series, you’ll see an Event Series option. This option is located just below the Start/End options for your event.
Event Image and Add a Gallery
You can add your logo or a photo representation of the event to your listing.
You can add more than one image to create an image gallery on your page.
Use landscape or horizontal/rectangle shape images. This will avoid having your items cut off, either top or bottom:
Please use horizontal/landscape photos If you have a tall/vertical item, leave room on each side of it to make it landscape/horizontal shape, or take a photo of 2 to 3 vertical items in a row.
Save photos a minimum of large for best resolution. The recommended size is 1024 pixels (width) X 512 pixels (height) DO NOT save as actual size as they are too large. Maximum upload file size: 2 MB. Edit photos (crop, lighten before saving on your iPhone or desktop of your computer)
After clicking the choose image button you will need to look through your computer or your moblie cell files to select the correct one.
You may only select one event category. Selecting the correct category will help people searching find your event.
List your top-quality items for sale.
Your event Item listings (tags) are very important for the best search results. You may choose available tags or enter your own. Make sure to separate your items with commas and use specific item wording for the best results:
EXAMPLE: majolica pottery, carnival glassware, Gulf gas signs
If you’ve created a venue for a previous event, you’ll have the option of selecting an existing venue from a drop-down menu (you may also type an address into the search box.
Entering a new venue name and selecting the Create option from the menu options will display the new venue form fields below, allowing you to create a new venue for your event.
Provide a name for the venue and any optional address details – if you like – a contact phone number and website. The last two checkboxes control whether a map should be shown to visitors and/or a link to a map should be displayed.
💡 If your event is happening a little off the beaten path and there isn’t a mappable address, you can use latitude and longitude instead. To do this, leave the venue without an address. After you’ve created the event, go to Events > Venues and edit the Venue in question. You’ll see an option there for adding coordinates.
You (optional) may provide an event website:
This is particularly useful if you are showcasing events organized by external organizations that have a dedicated event website.
Event Cost or Fee
This is optional you can pass on by and leave these alone if you like. If you don’t provide a cost, then no cost details will be shown to visitors. If the event is actually free then simply provide a cost of 0 (zero).
