How to Add An Event Listing to Tri Cities Info


Let’s walk through how to get your event added. 


  1. Log into your Tri Cities Info account. You will land on your dashboard. 

  2. Click on the “Events” link from the menu on the left side of your dashboard.

  3. Click to “Add Event”

  4. Product: Choose your membership plan. Note that the selections all show “FREE”, but if you choose a plan above your current plan, you will be prompted to pay/upgrade your plan when you complete adding your Event. If you do not wish to upgrade, make sure you are selecting your current membership plan. Click “Submit”

  5. Primary Category: Choose the appropriate category for the Event you are listing. 

  6. Extra Categories: Only available for the Gold and Platinum plans. If you are on the FREE plan, you can skip this section.

  7. Parent Event: If you have several Events posted, you could use this to link all of your events together. (An example would be a food truck with the main event (the Parent Event), and then posts an event for every location they visit this month.)  If this does not apply to you, or if this Event IS the Parent (or only) event, you can leave blank. 

  8. Logo: Upload a Business or Event logo or image

  9. Title: List the title of your Event

  10. Unique Code: This field will automatically build as you enter your company name. This unique code is used to build your page on the site. Once your event is submitted, you can always use the URL generated from this unique code to send users directly to your event, by submitting your Unique Code into the URL like this:

  11. Summary: Enter a summary or tagline about your business. This summary appears on the search results page when users are searching, so make it something short and interesting! 

  12. Description: Use this section to describe your event

  13. Gallery: Different plan levels allow for different amounts of pictures you can upload. Add pictures of anything you wish to showcase about your event. The most popular Events have several pictures listed. 

  14. Hours: Use this section to list your Event hours/days open. This is an optional field.  Note that once you enter the first day/hours, a second box will appear, so you want to add days/hours for any day of the week your Event is happening. Once your Event is live, it will list “Open/Closed Now” and will show the open hours. If you are having a 1-time only event, you may want to leave this field blank and choose the hours by the Event Start & End Dates, listed below on the form. 

  15. Phone: Enter a phone number if you wish

  16. Website: Enter your Event website URL. If you do not have a website for your event, you may choose to enter the URL to any of your social media pages or posts where you have promoted the event. Note that the website format must be in this format: You have to include the “http://” in the website URL.

  17. Event Start Date: Choose the Start Date and Time

  18. Frequency: Choose the appropriate frequency for the event. 

  19. Event End Date: Choose the End Date and Time

  20. Allow RSVPs: Click to turn blue if your event requires RSVPs (RSVPs will be collected on your event site/page, not on Tri Cities Info

  21. Address: Enter the street address for the event. 

  22. Zip Code: Enter the zip code for the event. These address fields help create maps to your event, as well as allow users to search for your event within a zip code radius to their area. 

  23. Latitude & Longitude: These sections will auto-populate based on the address you entered. Leave these as-is, as these are the map coordinates that the system uses to build the map for your business. 

  24.  SEO Title, SEO Keywords, SEO Description: Use these fields to briefly list information about your business. These SEO tags are what help Google find your page when someone does a search. 

  25. Timezone: This is used to determine Open/Closed business hours and the State and End dates and times of your Event. Use “UTC-4” as this is our timezone. 

  26. Discount Code: If you have received a discount code or coupon from Tri Cities Info, enter the code here. 

  27. Click Submit and you’re done! Your Event will now appear on the site!
