Share This Posts

With a Timely account, you can easily add images to your templates while customizing them. Whether you want to add your company logo to your event tickets or an engaging image to the automated emails that are sent to your submitters, the steps remain very simple. In this post, you will learn how to add images to your templates.

1. Why you Should Add Images to Templates?

Using images in your templates will always make your communications more interesting. Moreover, images can help you increase event engagement, as people are much more likely to keep reading any type of content if there are images in between the texts.

And this is true not only for communications between event promoters and their customers, but also with partners that help you fill your calendar with events. Everyone will feel much more engaged when they receive an email from you with an image that relates to the event, or a funny picture that makes they smile or laugh. It’s all about creativity!

2. Types of Templates

Timely event management system has two template libraries: Community Events Templates and Ticketing / RSVP Templates.

Community Events Templates

The community events menu is designed for event professionals that run a promotional calendar and publish events from others. This means that the calendar owner allows the community to submit events to their website calendar.

If you are already using Timely event submission form features, you might want to learn how to customize event submission templates.

Ticketing / RSVP Templates

The Ticketing / RSVP templates are useful to clients who use Timely event registration or event ticketing features to collect responses from attendees for free events or sell tickets for paid events. The templates are sent automatically to attendees once they register, purchase or cancel an event ticket or registration.
