If your hosting your own events, or promoting events for a business through partnership marketing, it’s wise to organize your events by date, give them searchable content and keywords, and display upcoming events on your sidebar from everyone to see.

All-in-One Event Calendar is one of the best WordPress calendar plugins I’ve come across to help organize and promote all of your events.

Adding new events is just like adding a new blog post.  Instead of “add post” it’s just “add event” from your admin screen. This will add a post-like evenst pages that will contain searchable content, keywords,  page titles, and tags, making your events just as SEO friendly as your articles.  This additional content will help bring more search traffic to your site.

With your list of event posts, you can display them on a calendar page and a widget.  The widget is helpful for promoting your events on all pages, and your homepage.  See the calendar widget in action in our promotion for a local  comedy club.

With meta dates and times embedded into your event posts, the  widget will automatically display the events which are upcoming.  The plugin CSS is fully customizable with its own stylesheet. Clicking on an event in the widget will take your visitor to the event’s page to read more, keeping them on your site longer.

You can also display events by category, which was essential for our needs, as we are promoting multiple calenders for separate businesses.
