Spread awareness about your corona-adapted business plans with a featured Headliner. Think up a safe event and book the Headliner for that day (event poster required). At 9am fresh, a popup is sent to all our local community members, inviting us all to join your flash sale, virtual class, etc, at the time you determine. Let’s keep the local economy going, all together.
DIY poster art encouraged, tips below, or hire a local poster artist from our Local Artist Directory. Would you like to be known around town as a poster maker for hire? Add your art link to the Local Artist Directory for free (www or @IG) right from the app.
- The artist directory is currently at bottom of the app’s Settings tab, but relocating to menu soon.
The price of each listing is charged to your Apple or Google Account as an in-app purchase. We also accept Paypal, Visa, MC, Amex, and Discover when submitting Events and Headliners online at townpost.events.
Determining Listing Reach
To see how far your event listing may be seen around town, tap the Settings tab in the app to see the number of local subscribers registered on the app for your town. This number does not include visitors to the area who may be using the app, or Truckee locals who have not registered as a subscriber yet.
Determining Viewer Interest
A view counter can be found inside each listing. This tracks every time your listing taps your listing for more information. To increase your viewer interest, try adjusting your Event Name and first line of your description (your hook). Featuring your event with a poster is also a great idea.
Double check your Listing
Check the app to see how your listings looks. Event titles have space for 20 characters or less. If your event name is long, use a nickname: “tag sale” or “wine tasting” etc.
The first sentence of your description is your “hook”, it’s visible just under your event title, so make it catchy! Viewers can tap the listing to read more.
All events need a start and end date and time to be saved properly. If your event happens for more than one consecutive day, please choose your start and end dates accordingly. If your event is one day a week for 10 weeks, please create a listing for each date, or contact us to create a repeat listing.
Camps and Classes
In certain circumstances, consider listing your event on the registration deadline date so that community members don’t appear at your event and get turned away. Also, if you’re a yoga studio for example, instead of listing all your classes, list a “newcomers” class, and include your complete class listing at the bottom of the description.
For events hosted in a language other than English, go ahead and list in your preferred language. The Town Post, however, requests that the event title or first paragraph of the description is written in English so everyone is welcome to participate.
To add a poster after the event has been listed, please do so online via townpost.events. This cannot be done via the app. Category selection cannot be changed, and event details cannot be edited after the event begins. Headliners can only be purchased and edited online, they cannot be booked or edited via the App.
The Hometown Post is just you and your town, hanging out and having fun. Where Facebook is global, The Post is local. Where Instagram is “I wish I was there”, The Post is “I’m already here”. The Post is the original way to get out and go. See you out there. Thank you, and stay safe.
