getting started with calendar snack
easy as 1-2-3
create in your calendar
Calendar Snack makes planning simple. Just create a new event in your Google or Outlook Calendar, add firstname.lastname@example.org. Within seconds, you will receive your notification email, with links to your Calendar Snack.
send calendar invites
Let's make it easy for your guests, your attendees and potential new contacts to attend your event. We automatically create one-click landing pages, email RSVP links and webpage embeds. Pick the way you want to send calendar invitations.
site back & relax
Need to send updates or reminders for your event? Or if you ever need to cancel the event? Calendar Snack has you covered. It's as easy as updating your calendar (the one your used to create your Calendar Snack), and sending us the updates. We also keep track of all your guest and their RSVP status.
There's no wait gain with Calendar Snack?
Create your Calendar Snack within your own Calendar (it’s as easy as inviting us to your Event or Meeting). Send calendar invitations with the tools you already use today (Email Marketing, Social Media, Landing Pages, Webpages, Email). And then sit back and Count all the calendar invitations sent and RSVPs received. It will maybe take you 15 minutes to figure out how to use Calendar Snack. The best part? If you get something wrong, just edit the original event and send it back to us.
Single and Multi-Event Landing Pages ready to use immediately
What if you had a ready to use Event Landing Page? One that is as simple to use? Event better, one that is automatically ready to use. Well, we’ve got you covered. As soon as your Snack is created, you have a event landing page ready to use. One link to copy, and then start sharing it out – in email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn – anywhere you could use a webpage link.
Included are four (4) single event landing pages and two (2) multiple event landing pages (for your next 25 events).
The RSVP Button -- A single CTA link for Email Marketing
The power of Calendar Snack is how easy it is to use with your existing marketing tools – that’s why we created a simple way to include them within your email marketing. There is a single CTA link ready to use within your Email Marketing campaigns. It’s a One-Click-RSVP button.
We include prebuilt links for Mailchimp, Klaviyo, Convertkit, and Sendgrid. Coming soon is a way to “build your own” CTA links. Copy and you’re ready to start sending!
Simple webpage embeds
Nothing is more frustrating than not having an easy way to use a marketing tool. We don’t believe you need to step outside your standard process to use a new tool. Our webpage embeds are iFrame based, and can be used within any webpage that accepts iFrames. Then, just design “around” the webform – we’ll take care of sending the calendar invitation.
Single and Multi-Event at-a-glance reporting
Snacks should be easy, who wants to login when all you really need is a single secure (created just for you) link to the information. Our reporting link provides all the details you need to understand how well your Event is performing. You’ve never had this type of detailed report around your event (or at least without spending a ton of money for “limited” information). We track calendar Invites Send and RSVPs received for your Event. All detailed and summarized in bite-sized pieces.
Also included is the Summary report across all your Events.
Frequently asked questions about our process
Calendar Snack is 100% free to use (through the end of 2022, pricing and limits start in January 2023 – check out our pricing page for more details). Create as many Snacks as you want. We want everyone to start using the Calendar as the “go to” marketing tool for live (and time-based) events. There is a limitation of 100K calendar invitations (sent) per year.
31Events.com is a Calendar Marketing platform and Calendar Snack uses the platform to create, send and count our one-click calendar invitations. 31Events is different, the platform extends the functionality of standard Google or Outlook calendar, and turns it into a marketing tool to send calendar invitations on demand with one-click. The difference is in maintaining the “connection” to your invitee’s calendar. We can tell if they have accepted, declined or if the event is still tentative. It’s really pretty cool once you see it in action.
31Events is dedicated to making it simple to use the Calendar as a marketing tool for time-based marketing activities and campaigns. Create Events, Send Calendar Invitations and provide Analytics/Reporting of the actions your customers take.
We are “old school” sales and marketing people. We realized early in our careers, if we could get ON someone’s calendar, for either a phone call or a face-to-face meeting, we had a much better chance of closing sales.
Today, the inbox is crowded, time is precious, so we decided to do the hard work to get on the calendar (and there’s lots of magic in the background happening), and completely skip the inbox.
