Allcal uses the content you put in your title and description to determine what your calendar is about, so make sure to add any keywords that are relevant to your group, organization, or business’ calendar.

2. Add Locations to Your Events: Allcal users have the option to use location to filter and sort Public Calendars. Therefore, it’s imperative to add the correct location to all your events.

Allcal will use this information to help users find calendars and events that are within walking or driving distance. Plus, adding a location will let you see RSVP’d users ETA, starting an hour before your event.

3. Be Chatty: Take advantage of Allcal’s chat features on both your calendar and events. This will not only give you points and credit for activity, but will help followers stay engaged before, during, and after your events.

4. Make Memorable Calendars: When creating public calendars, think about creating awesome content that is beneficial and interesting to others. Think beyond What/When/Where aspects of your events, and realize that Allcal’s unique Social Planning platform is about more then sharing all the information – it’s about sharing it at the right time.

For example, you could host a “Pop-up Event” and wait to add the location only 24 hours before the actual event. By using Allcal, you can make sure everyone gets instantly informed of the new information, plus keep fans excited with this new, exclusive information.

5. Never Stop Sharing
