Milestone’s Local Events can now push events to Facebook Local and Eventbrite and can be deployed on non-Milestone CMS websites.
Santa Clara, CA | January 22, 2018. Digital Marketing software vendor Milestone Inc has launched new features for its local events publishing platform. The events platform, part of Milestone’s Digital Presence Cloud, allows businesses to add local events to their website manually, or by accepting events from nearby locations – automatically. “Milestone’s events management platform provides massive SEO boosts to businesses,” said Sathya Krishnamurthy, Milestone VP of Products. “A business in Chicago could accept Chicago Cubs games and instantly add 81 locally-relevant pages to their website,” continued Mr. Krishnamurthy. Milestone events wraps each deployed event in schemas and publishes each one on an individual page, creating exceptional SEO opportunities for location-based businesses.
Until now this capability has only been available to users of Milestone’s CMS platform, but Milestone is expanding the platform by allowing customers to leverage Milestone’s local events capabilities non-Milestone CMS websites as well as by adding new social channels.
