How to post your events on this site

We have set up this site to list your Cuddle Parties through Eventbrite.

Eventbrite lets you:
– set up your event, publish and promote it
– create a short url so it’s easy to send and paste (ex: dec14.eventbrite.com)
– collect payment (and refund if needed)
– keep track of registrations
– automatically send out reminder emails with directions.

If you like you can also keep your email list there so the invitations go out to your list each time, including a sync with Mailchimp (which I have not used yet).

Then your party automatically shows up here – - – - >>


To begin:

Use this link to open an account with your email name: http://www.eventbrite.com/r/cuddleparty


After you create your account:

1 – Send us the log in and password to your Eventbrite account so we can program this website to harvest your parties. They also show up on your individual page.

2 – IF you also host OTHER events that are not CP and want to use your Eventbrite account for that (many of us do) – Please see the notes below – So those events do not show up on this website.

TO USE EVENTBRITE:

1 – Look through all the parties listed on this pageĀ  –>>
to see how other people use it.

2 – Download the Cuddle Party Logo here. Save it on your computer.

3 – When you create a CP, upload the logo to your Event. You can choose layout and colors for your events as you like.

4 – Use the tutorials here. Video tutorials are at the bottom of the page.

Tickets and fees:

You have several options:

1 – If you charge a fee, Eventbrite takes a small percentage. Totally worth it!!!

You have 2 options: 1) You can eat the fee as part of your costs or 2) Eventbrite can ADD the fee to your posted price. Whichever you choose is OK.

2 – If you are determined not to give anything to Eventbrite – You can list your events as free, and then collect at the door.

To do this: Create a free ticket with the name “Pay at the door”. Example here: http://cuddlejune16.eventbrite.com/

3 – You can create different tickets for different prices, too – sliding scale, ticket for 2, etc.

About Gender Balancing:

If you want to gender balance you may do so by creating a fixed number of male and female tickets. When either one is sold out, no more will be sold. You can of course monitor the progress as the signups occur.

Date:

You can use the repeating event – but I don’t recommend it. Does not show up as well on the CP site and can be confusing.

Instead – Set up your event- including the automatic emails (below) and then use the COPY function. All you have to do then is change the date. All the automatic stuff gets copied too.

Automatic confirmation:

Be sure to include what you want about location, being on time, gender etc. Tutorial here.

Automatic reminder email:

Set up an automatic email for 2 days before event, with same or other details.

Location:

You must use the drop down menu – DO NOT just type in your city. This lets this site pick it up correctly.

Verify:

Give it up to 30 minutes to show up here – then check back here to see that all is correct.

YAY! Have a cup of tea!

IF YOU ALSO USE EVENTBRITE FOR YOUR OTHER EVENTS

1 – Create a different ‘organizer’ profile for those events. (For example, I use Betty Martin for CP’s and Dr. Betty Martin for my other stuff.)

When you create an event – step 5 is to choose an organizer. At that point you either choose one or create a new one, including whatever details about yourself you like.

2 – Now, up at the top, click on ‘My Events’. Near the top of that page is the option to see events by each organizer. Check and see that all are correct.

3 – Please let me know that you have done this so I can program the CP site properly to pick up only the CP’s – and not the others.

4 – If you don’t do this and someone calls to our attention that the events listed on the site are not CP’s – then Betty will grumble and have to email or call you. (Not a happy scene)

——————-

Any questions please email or call Betty at 206-920-1228, betty@cuddleseattle.com. If needed, we can walk you through it.
