CMS Integration with Sequel.io: Streamline Your Live Events Workflow

Are you tired of the never-ending cycle of manually updating your website's content every time you have a new event or session to share with your audience? Imagine a world where your website's content is automatically synchronized with your event management system, saving you time, effort, and countless headaches. That world is now a reality with the seamless CMS integration provided by Sequel.io.

The Power of CMS Integration

Content Management Systems (CMS) have revolutionized the way websites are built and maintained. CMS platforms like WordPress, Joomla, and Webflow empower website owners to easily manage and update their site's content without the need for coding skills. However, there has always been a missing link between managing your website's content and managing your live events.

Enter Sequel.io, a comprehensive live events and webinars platform designed to simplify the entire event lifecycle, from creation and registration to hosting directly on your website. Whether you're planning webinars, workshops, conferences, or any type of event, Sequel.io offers a powerful solution to streamline the process. But the true magic happens when you combine the power of Sequel.io with your CMS.

Seamless Integration

Picture this: You create an event in Sequel.io, and with a simple click, it automatically appears on your website with fully functioning registration, live engagement and on-demand content with AI generated summary. No more copying and pasting lengthy embed codes, no more manual content updates. With  CMS integration, all of this is taken care of effortlessly, leaving you with more time to focus on what truly matters - delivering exceptional events.

Getting Started with CMS Integration

To embark on this journey of seamless content management and event promotion, here's what you'll need:

  1. Sequel.io Business Plan: Ensure you have a Sequel.io Business Plan subscription to access the powerful integration features.
  2. CMS Plan: If you're using a CMS like Webflow, make sure you have the appropriate plan that includes CMS capabilities, as you'll be leveraging these features extensively.
  3. Zapier Starter Plan: Zapier is a versatile automation tool that will serve as the bridge between Sequel.io and your CMS.

The Integration Process Unveiled

Let's delve into the nuts and bolts of how the CMS integration process works, step by step:

  1. Set Up Your CMS: Start by creating a CMS collection tailored to your events. This collection will house all the event-related content. Be sure to include fields for essential event information, including a dedicated field for Sequel Event IDs.
  2. Embed Sequel Events: Utilize your CMS, whether it's Webflow or any other preferred platform, to embed Sequel events. This step will involve a bit of HTML and JavaScript, but don't worry, it's a one-time setup as easy as embedding a form or a YouTube video.
  3. Leverage Zapier: Zapier acts as the invaluable conduit between Sequel.io and your CMS. You'll configure a Zap (an automation workflow) that triggers whenever an event is created in Sequel.io.
  4. Field Mapping Magic: In your Zap, map the relevant fields, such as event name, date, and description, from Sequel.io to your CMS. This ensures that the event details flow seamlessly from Sequel.io to your website.
  5. Automate the Process: Once everything is set up, whenever you create a new event in Sequel.io, the information and embed code will automatically populate your CMS, keeping your website current and your audience ready to join upcoming seesions.
