Promoting Events Online Made Easy With Crowd.fm

Crowd.fm is an easy-to-use platform created to promote events online. It's been described by its founder Tekin Suleyman as "an amazing platform for getting events listed with a single click." The company provides the Crowd.fm API to provide developers integration options.

Promoters and event organizers know the effort required to get the right attention around their events; posting to multiple websites and social networks, as well as tracking the responses to these posts is imperative. Crowd.fm addresses this very issue as it plugs into platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Songkick, Eventful, Upcoming, Last.fm and SoundCloud. With one click users can either publish their events immediately or schedule when they want the information to appear and crowd.fm does the rest; events are automatically listed on all the chosen listings & social network sites. Users then have the option to manage the event information easily, make changes, re-arrange dates and track the events all in one place.

The crowd.fm API allows developers to access and integrate the event data from crowd.fm with other applications. The API only supports JSON for data serialization and all requests and responses should be UTF-8 encoded. Developers interested in accessing the API can get more information on the crowd.fm website.
