Courtney and I are back this week with more info to help you grow your business online. Check out our short podcast above about this week’s topic:

Better Promote Your Events Using the Event Calendar Pro WordPress Plugin

Like so many things “web,” integrating your events with your website can be confusing… or costly when you factor in a webmaster. But the fact is, you’re missing out if you’re not consistently posting your events to your website. And that’s because any type of special event you participate in or host can mean significant growth for your business… They keep your ideal customers thinking about you!

So in typical GFYD Member fashion, we’ve found a plug-in to help you manage your events as easily as you add a new blog post: Event Calendar Pro. And we’ve got all the details for you in our next LIVE webinar THIS THURSDAY, MAY 5th at 2PM EDT. (Not in eastern time zone? check the time in your area here.)

With Event Calendar Pro, your SEO won’t suffer anymore because you won’t have to erase old event details and replace them with new ones.
