Prompt Friendly Help

I am always happy to help, whether it’s for specific queries, resizing images, or to load the whole thing for you.

Once you have an account, you can use these help tips when you first create your Professional Development Event Listing or when you want to make changes later.

If you are advertising an Event in more than one location, you will need a separate Listing for EACH LOCATION (bit of a pain but it’s how the map system works).

SAVE as you go

  • there is a SAVE button at the bottom of the page
  • it’s a good idea to save as you go rather than waiting until you’ve entered everything, note that it won’t save until you have entered your Title and selected the Category (see below)
  • after you click SAVE it will take you to the PREVIEW screen, to return to the editor, click the BLUE EDIT button at the bottom right of the screen
  • each time you UPDATE you will be taken to the PREVIEW screen

Listing Title & Tagline​

  • the Title & Taglines show on the Directory results pages and your Listing
  • they can be changed anytime
  • the Tagline is optional
  • you can leave the Tagline blank, put in your Organisation name, or say something to connect with potential attendees

Full Address

  • the address you enter puts your pin on the map
  • start typing your address, if a drop-down list appears select the address that matches yours, if a list doesn’t drop-down just type in your address
  • you don’t have to put in your full address, if you only put in a street/suburb/town the system will put your map pin in what it thinks is the middle of the street/suburb/town
  • if your Event is ONLINE ONLY then leave the address field blank

City

  • these are used by the filter system when visitors want to select Events by location
  • select your closest city/town and suburb from the drop-down list
  • this list is a work in progress, so if you can’t find your location let us know and we’ll add it
  • if your Event will be held in multiple locations ONLY select the city/town and suburb relevant to THIS Listing or it will distort the map

Phone

  • enter the phone number you want attendees to contact you on
  • you can leave the box blank if you don’t want to be contacted by phone

Website

  • if you want a link to your website enter the address here

Category

  • this is a required field, and your Listing will not save until you choose a Listing Category
  • select Professional Development Events from the drop down list

Select Your Listing Features

  • these filters help potential attendees select Events that suit their needs
  • select as many as are relevant

Social Media

  • you can add links to your Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts
  • select the type of social media
  • enter the address
  • save it by clicking the blue + button

 

 

Description

  • this is a required field, and your Listing will not save if you leave it blank
  • you can use the basic editor to format your text, if you have any problems get in touch I am happy to tidy it up for you
  • if you hover over the grey triangle in the bottom right corner and drag it you can make the editing box bigger for easier use
  • Heading 3 will give you a BLUE heading in the published page, but it will still look black in the editor itself

Video

  • you can add a link to a video in this box
  • videos can be a great way to talk to potential attendees
  • they don’t have to be professionally made, try creating one on your phone, it just needs to be a good resolution and have clear audio
  • keep them short, 1-3 minutes is generally recommended for a website

Images

  • these images will show in the gallery at the top of your Listing
  • images will work best if they are 245px wide by 270px high
  • if you don’t know how to crop and resize your images feel free to send me the originals I’m happy to do it for you
  • you can add as many images as you like, but be aware that not many people take the time to scroll through a slide show so put your best 3 first

Featured Image

  • this image will be displayed in the Directory Results pages
  • images will work best if they are 245px wide by 270px high
  • if you don’t know how to crop and resize your images feel free to send me the originals I’m happy to do it for you
