Frequently asked questions
Absolutely not! Promoter is a standalone service that connects to The Events Calendar and Event Tickets on your WordPress site.
Once you have registered your Promoter license in The Events Calendar settings in WordPress, Promoter will automatically communicate with The Events Calendar to sync events, and Event Tickets Plus to sync event attendees.
Yes, The Events Calendar and Event Tickets (both free) need to be installed and activated on your WordPress site in order for Promoter to import events from your calendar. The Events Calendar is a free plugin that is available to download in the WordPress Plugin Directory.
Promoter only supports The Events Calendar at the moment. But, if you want to be crafty, you can use our Event Aggregator service to automatically import events from other calendars — including Google Calendar, Outlook, iCal and Meetup — into The Events Calendar, which will then sync with Promoter.
Promoter is an event communication platform that connects data from The Events Calendar and Event Tickets (you must have both to use Promoter) to your WordPress site. In short, it’s made specifically to make email marketing easier for sites running The Events Calendar.
Once you purchase Promoter, you’ll create an account at promoter.theeventscalendar.com, this is where you’ll connect Promoter to your WordPress site as well and create and manage email communication for your events.
Promoter subscriptions are annual and can be canceled any time during the subscription.
If you cancel your subscription, you will still be able to use Promoter normally throughout the remainder of your annual subscription. You simply will not be charged at the next billing cycle.
Please check out our knowledgebase for more information on Promoter subscriptions.
Yes! In fact, Promoter has a Triggered Messages feature that allows emails to be sent based on user interactions.
These interactions include:
- When a user purchases a ticket
- When a user RSVPs “Going” for an event
- When a user RSVPs “Not Going” for an event
- When a user checks into the event
