How to customize and design your event listing

Add a header image, include FAQs to answer any attendee questions upfront, and even include images in your event's description—all on the Edit page. Just make sure that you have permission to use the images and/or videos you plan to include on your event listing.

TIP: While you can't save a custom design to use for future events, you can easily eblink{copy an existing event=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3268} to use the same design and settings you already set up.

NOTE: If your event is using our new event listings design, you won't see any customization options on the Design page of your event. Don’t worry though—our new modern design is made for you to sell more tickets and provide attendees with a better registration experience. eblink{Learn more about what's changing=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=8476}.

1. Add your event image.

Your event image appears at the very top of your event listing.

Adding an event image to the top of your event listing is key for branding efforts and helps make sure your event looks great on all devices. To eblink{add an event image=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3226}, go to your event's Edit page, then find Step 1: Event Details. Under "Event Image,", just drag and drop or click "Add Event Image" to upload an eye-catching photo that makes an impression on potential attendees.

TIP: We recommend using at least a 2160 x 1080px (2:1 ratio) image that's no larger than 10MB. eblink{Learn more about choosing the best event image=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=8898}.

PRO TIP: At this time, you can only upload a single event image as detailed above. If you want to add more than one image on your event listing, you'll need to add them to your event description, as detailed in Step 2.

NOTE: Any images you use must be yours or adhere to Creative Common copyright licenses. eblink{Flickr=>https://www.flickr.com/creativecommons/} has a great Creative Commons section, and you can browse or search through content under each type of license to find photos. We recommend using photos under "Attribution License," which allows you to use the works as long as you give credit to the copyright owner.

2. Add images to your event description.

Your event description will appear beneath the Ticket Information box on your event listing, and any images you add will appear in the event description box.

Event listings with lots of rich imagery can be more inviting for potential attendees. The event description is a great place to add other photos like your flier, logos, or pictures from the previous year's event. To eblink{add images to your event description=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3225}, head over to your event's Edit page, find Step 1: Event Details, then locate the "Event Description" section. All you have to do is select the tree icon to get started.

PRO TIP: Having trouble uploading your flier? We advise against uploading fliers without a written event description as this can make your event show up less frequently in Google searches (bad SEO) and can be difficult to read on mobile devices. Ideally, you should add images without text and type in your words separately. If you do want to upload a flier, it's easiest to first eblink{convert your flier to an image file=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=8604} (if it isn't already,) and then insert the image into the event description.

NOTE: Custom formatting in the event description like eblink{video=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3233}, font changes, and text color aren't currently supported with our new event listings design. eblink{Learn more about what features are supported with modern event listings=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=25466}.

3. Embed a widget on your own website.

Invite & Promote is the third option in the left-hand menu on the Manage page, and Website Integrations is the fourth option under Invite & Promote.

Now that you've customized the "look" of your event listing, it's time to advertise and eblink{promote your event to the world=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3746}! You can use one of our widgets to eblink{let people to buy tickets right on your own website=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3442}. To get started, head to your event's Manage page, go to Invite & Promote, then select "Website Integrations". You can even customize the color scheme of the widget to match your site's color scheme.

TIP: Please note that widgets cannot be used if your event is eblink{invitation-only=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3462}.

NOTE: Your outside website must support iframes in order to embed these widgets. Wordpress.org users, for instance, will need install a eblink{plugin=>http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=embed+iframes&sort=} allowing you to embed iframes in your site. However, WordPress.com users can eblink{use the Multi Event and Single Event Themes=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3892}.
