HOW TO GET MY INFORMATION ON BIRMINGHAM365.ORG?
Calendar content is entered by you. There is no cost to post events on the Birmingham365.org calendar. The site welcomes listings for all events, classes, camps, programs, community meetings, and activities that open to the public with or without a fee.
There are two ways to submit event listings to Birmingham365.org. (1) Use the public forms by clicking “Submit A Listing” -- best option when submitting one or a small number of entries that you will not need to edit or have ongoing access to. (2) Create a free user account (find link in top right corner of each web page) -- which lets you submit and edit entries, have access to past event records, post media reviews, and generate traffic statistics. NOTE: The system is designed so that there is a single account per group or organization. To see if your group or organization already has an account, email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm.
EXPONENTIAL MARKETING EXPOSURE
In addition to Birmingham365.org, the event information will automatically be shared with: the Greater Birmingham Convention and Visitors Bureau (online and print calendars), Birmingham magazine (print and email calendars), and WBHM (online calendars) and will be available via a link on the home page of the City of Birmingham’s website So enter your event once and the information appears on Birmingham365.org and is automatically shared with these calendar partners, again, for free.
