Agendex for Marketing

Trade shows to attend, webinars to schedule, conferences (and all the logistics they entail!) to plan…the marketing team almost always has a ton of stuff on their plates to work on, don’t they?

Once all the work has come together, it’s now time to let the world know about your events: all your customers, prospects, partners, etc. Sure, you could login to your CMS, go to your Events page, and edit the page with your list of events.

Or…you could just add them to an Exchange calendar via an Outlook client, something everyone is familiar with, and have these events magically show up on a calendar on your web site.

That’d be easier, wouldn’t it? You could even delegate the calendar(s) to several people on the team so they could manage them from their Outlook client (Eileen handles the “Webinars” calendar, James takes care of the “Events” calendar, etc.). People using the tools they already know, no additional training!

In the event body, they can even add the links to your landing page or registration site for people to sign up.

Then, you can either 1) provide a link to your company calendar so it opens up in a separate tab in the user’s browser, or 2) embed the calendar right on your web page.

At the bottom of this blog you can see both options in action as our fictitious “Centerville Community Centre” uses Agendex to provide citizens of the town with a list of events, art shows, concerts, etc.

Centerville Community Center - Demo

Centerville is a small (fictitious) coastal community that uses Agendex to publish their calendar of events, concerts, art shows, etc. They have also “federated” their Agendex instance with the Centerville Arts Center (they both have Microsoft 365) – this allows staff from both organizations to search availability for people, rooms, and resources and easily book meetings.

The community center can either just provide a link on their Events page to their calendar, which will open in a new tab, something like this:
Centerville Community Center Events Calendar

Or they can embed their calendar directly on the page (note that all the calendars below – Sculptures, Art Classes, Theater Series, etc. – are being fed real-time from Exchange/M365 calendars updated through Outlook!). Go ahead – interact with the calendar below: change to Week view, select only the calendars you want to see, click on an event to view details, etc.
