Yapsody came up with a WordPress plugin "Yapsody Events Calendar" for the event presenter those who own WordPress Site. This plugin will help to display their Yapsody events on their WordPress site in a Calendar view. On click of the event from the calendar, the visitor will be redirected to the actual event page of the venue from there he/she could purchase tickets.
This plugin bridges the gap between the presenters WordPress platform and Yapsody Online store to market their events on their website pages within a calendar. This Calendar will dynamically display events on the calendar as and when an event is added, Updated or deleted in the Yapsody BoxOffice platform, in short reducing the load over the presenter to manually add events on their site for promotion and marketing of their upcoming events.
