Welcome! SlickTown is a Utah based company that started in 2011 with one goal in mind - to provide the answer to one of life’s post perplexing
questions; “What am I going to do tonight?” It's a question that can create anxiety, tension, hard feelings
and, if left unanswered, even boredom! Relax, now you have one place you can go to find all sorts of options
Utah has tons of exciting events happening every day and we do our best to capture those events and
deliver them to you via our fun and informative calendar. Events make it to our calendar in two ways. First, we
visit dozens of websites and community resources and update our calendar with events we feel are relevant to our citizens. We do this on a monthly basis. Second,
people who want to advertise their events to our citizens can post them on our calendar for free.
As our site grows and new features are added, use this page to find answers to any questions you might have. You can read through the page in its
entirety or use the links below to jump to a specific section:

Additional advertising options
Thanks for stopping by our little town. We hope you love our calendar, and we know you will find many
new and exciting ways to spend your time. We appreciate your help in spreading the word. So be sure
and tell your friends about the fastest growing town in Utah. With no taxes, friendly neighbors, and a
party every night.
Although you can find many events that are scheduled months out, our main focus is to post a variety
of options within the next thirty days. Use the calendar icon to see what is happening on a specific
day, or click on any of the category icons across the top of the calendar to filter events for that
specific category. For example, if you wanted a quick view of what concerts are coming up simply click
the “Music” icon. This will generate a list of concerts only. When you find the one that makes you smile
share it. Tell your friends by clicking on the Facebook or twitter icons under the event name. This is a fun
and easy way to share the events you're interested in, and see who else is interested in going.
We added the “to do +” feature so you can have one place to view the events you are most excited
about. When you're surfing through our site and come across an exciting event, click on the “to do +”
icon. This will store the event in your “To Do List.” You can view your list anytime by clicking on the “To
Do List” tab at the top of the calendar. We added this tool so you can quickly get the information you
need without having to search for it again. To use this feature you will need to register as a citizen of
SlickTown. But don’t worry it’s free and we will never release your personal information to anyone.
Take full advantage of our efforts by following us on Facebook and twitter.
We use Facebook to inform you about any deals, discounted tickets, meet-n-greets, pre-sales,
giveaways, contests and special or unique events. We follow dozens of venues, promoters, radio
stations, local blogs, and local reporters to stay on top of the best offers and deals around. We then use
our Facebook page to keep you informed. www.facebook.com/slicktown
Twitter is the best way to stay informed on a daily basis. We tweet out favorite events that are
happening that day or that week. Make sure to add us to your lists and always stay informed about the
most exciting and unique events. @slicktown
The blog is where we get to blab about anything we want. We use it to talk about our experiences at
an event or to spread the word about an upcoming event we are excited about. It’s a fun way to stay
Also, if you have a blog that you are trying to promote let us help. If you write about us in one of your
posts we well return the favor by telling our friends and followers about your blog through our Facebook
and twitter accounts. Just send us a link to your blog post, about us, by using the “contact us” link at the
bottom of the page. After reading the post we will return the love right away.
Everyone who has been involved with coordinating an event knows that one of the hardest parts is promoting
it. This can also be the most expensive. With SlickTown, you now have an extra tool available to you.
We spend a lot of time and money promoting our site and driving traffic to it. The vast majority of our web traffic consists of
local people looking for something to do. Our population is growing and people are talking. Take
advantage of our efforts. Post your events on our calendar. Now, pat yourself on the back and allow yourself a
sigh of relief because it’s free!
Scratch our back and we’ll scratch yours
To reach an even larger audience help us spread the word about SlickTown. Once you enter an event,
you’ll first need to wait for it to be approved by us. When you receive the approval email, visit the site
and use the calendar icon to view your event by clicking on the day of the event. Now simply click
the Facebook and/or twitter icon, right bellow your event, to share your event with your friends and
With a tweet just mention us @slicktown. When we see the mention, we will also tweet your event to
our followers. We will share an event once a day for every day you take advantage of this feature.
After sharing on Facebook visit our Facebook page and leave us a message or post to our wall. Simply
say, "Tag you’re it." When we get your message we will also share your event with our Facebook friends.
We will share once a week for every week you take advantage of this feature.
Still interested in more options?
Good, cause we have two others to choose from:
First, our blog: We use the blog to talk about upcoming shows and events that we are excited about.
If you want us to blog specifically about your event, it will only cost four tickets to that event. We
are constantly giving away free tickets to help promote our site and are willing to give you even more
publicity for providing us with tickets to your event.
Second, banner ads: We currently have four ads on our home page, two 170x350px and two 170x105px. This
is obviously the best place to be seen on the site. We are offering one of the large banners for six tickets,
or one of the small banners for four tickets. Keep in mind the ticket giveaway is just one more way to
spread the word about your event. We send out e-mails to all our citizens informing them about ticket
giveaways. We also talk about them on Facebook and twitter. This option will be the most cost effective
way you will find anywhere to promote your event. You can’t go wrong.
If you need us to create the ad for you we can do that too. It will only cost you two more tickets.
This is the best way to advertise! No out of pocket expense and you’re targeting your exact market —
local people looking for something to do. If you’re ready to take advantage of any of these options
simply click the “contact us” link at the bottom of the page.
Good luck with your event. We here at SlickTown wish you the best in your efforts to make Utah an exciting place to be!
