The Importance of an Event Calendar on Your Website

Gig, show, reading, appearance, concert, performance, engagement, narration, recital, solo…  whatever you call your pubic appearances, having an event calendar is a critical component to a successful artist or author website.

There is nothing more frustrating than going to the website of an artist and not being able to easily and clearly see where and when they are performing. Readings and live performances are how your fans will find you, so make it easy for them by having a clear listing of where you’re going to be and when you’re going to be there. Plus, having an event calendar lends credibility to you as an artist. It demonstrates that you have a performance history, which concert books or event planners will find appealing when considering potential new artists for their venue.

There are lots of choices when it comes to adding a gig calendar to your site but we’d be remiss if we didn’t tout our own because we think it’s pretty darn good. Why? Because the HostBaby Event Calendar widget includes all of the important elements of an event listing in one handy plug-in: day, month, date, year, time, location, address and a direct map link to where you’re going to be. And with our drag-and-drop widget feature, you can easily embed the calendar and show up to 5 upcoming events on your website.

So whether you’re narrating a nugget from your next novel or singing a sweet song from your latest CD, your fans will know where and when to find you!
