I’m cross-posting this from the email list for RSVPMaker, the events scheduling and registrations tool included with WordPress for Toastmasters. The example shown here also takes advantage of a landing page template included with the Toastmasters-branded Lectern theme for WordPress.
Improvements for RSVPMaker often arrive when I see the need for them in my own projects, and recently I found myself creating a landing page for a series of workshops at Online Presenters. This is a Toastmasters club I founded, which focuses on helping members develop skills for webinars and online meetings, presentations, and trainings of all sorts.
Because the workshop series is intended as a recruiting tool, I wanted our promotions (including some paid Facebook ads) to direct visitors to a page with a clear call to action — RSVP Now! — with no distractions that might tempt them to click away to another page or blog post. That meant the regular page sidebar and the menu at the top of the page had to go.
