Step 11 – Event links #
In order to provide you with the best services that you deserve, we are currently working on hosting online events on our platform with the ability for members to RSVP. Since we are not quite ready yet, filling the events links is very important so members can attend your online events or be able to find out more about our event. For example, you can add your website in the “Event Link” box or your venue’s website. If you are doing a live video on Youtube, you are most welcome to add your Youtube event link.
Once you have filled out all the required fields, press “submit”. You will then be re-directed to the “Thank You” Page, which will include a link that will allow you to view your event.
