Step 5: Select a template

Depending on your event needs, select a template that would complement it.

The first option in the pop-up gives you a bigger page banner image. The second one has a relatively smaller banner. While the third option gives you a blank canvas to build your event page from scratch. 

We have selected the first option for this sample event landing page. With this template, the metadata can be clearly seen at the top of the page. This makes it easy for your visitors to get your event’s information at a glance.

Next, customise your event landing page’s navigation menu. You can choose from having:

  1. A single-page website with no navigation. This option works best when want people to access the site from a link. For example, the link could be shared on social media or through email invites.
  2. A single page with a navigation menu. You may use this when you want people to navigate to the event landing page from your event’s website.
  3. An event website with sub-pages under the navigation menu. If you want to build sub category pages, this template is the perfect fit. An example for sub-categories could be dedicated pages for each sponsor.

We have selected the first option for this example.

Step 6: Name your event page

Name your event page in the first field. The second field generates a URL. Enter a short description without spaces and this will create a sample link where you can track your progress live.

You also have language options to pick from.

Once you’ve selected your choices, click on “Save and go on”.

Click on the “+” option on the bottom right corner of your screen to add website blocks.

Step 8: Create the first content block of your event landing page

A pop-up menu with content categories appears when you click on the “+” button on the page builder workspace. There are different content formats you can experiment with. 

We have chosen the “Text” option and the “Text” card for this example.

You can enter the description in the second box and format it to your liking.

Step 9: Add the second content block

Add more details to your event landing page with other elements from the “+” option. The “Image with text” element has 4 card combinations of photos and written content.

We have chosen the “Image with text in two columns” for this example.

Here you have three fields where you can enter the title of the section, upload an image, and enter text and format it.

Once you hit “Save Element”, here’s what your page builder workspace would look like.

Step 10: Build your third content block

We’ve completed the page with the final content element which is the “Venue”. If you’re having a physical event or a hybrid event, it would be a good idea to include details of the location. You can add a map and contact details so your attendees can reach you easily.

We have chosen the option on the second card as an example.

Step 11: Upload a banner image

Under the “Event Website Builder” option in the dashboard, you can find the option “Banner” where you can upload custom images.

If you choose to go for the default banner images available on the platform, you can skip this step.

Step 12: Track your progress live

Find out what your event landing page looks like as you are building it. After adding or editing a content block, you can view it live and make desired changes.

The link to check-out your work-in-progress website can be found in the page builder workspace next to the title.
