SceneSquid submits your events to local publications, blogs, and calendars so you don’t have to. Our platform starts by helping you target relevant media outlets and event curators for your event. We then automatically fill out event submission forms and send digital event digests containing your event details. SceneSquid is designed to give publications all the information they need about your event, in their preferred submission format.
Certain publications require a phone number for additional inquiries.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed and your data is secure. Upon signup for a paid plan, we'll charge you immediately, and then recurring once a month thereafter. Single event "upgrades" will be charged immediately to your card. Your credit card information is stored securely on Stripes servers; no confidential info is stored on our servers.
Several ways. When possible, we skip the inbox and submit your event directly into an editor’s dashboard or calendar through one of our publisher widgets. In other cases, we’ll fill out a publisher’s event submission form for you, using our automated technology. Finally, we’ll also email our media partners a daily digest containing your event, and retain your full event details on our site which they may access at any time.
Either because a publication’s SceneSquid editorial criteria do not match with your event details, or because we do not currently work with that publication. While we work with many media outlets and blogs, we don’t work with everyone (yet). Feel free to suggest someone to us, as we’re always expanding!
Are your dates correct? Incorrect dates are usually the cause here. If your event is less than 24 hours in advance, you won’t be matched with any publications as that’s inside their editorial timeframe.
Please keep in mind that the earlier you promote your event on SceneSquid, the better. This gives our media partners more time to consider your event, and, once covered, gives you more eyeballs seeing and considering your event.
Once you select your target publications and hit the ‘Publish’ button, your event enters the submission queue. The queue has a loading bar and, once completed, show’s the words “Finished!”
We’re constantly ‘listening’ for instances of coverage. We’ll do our best to find any coverage or listings and email you with a url to it so you can check it out, tweet it, etc. However, please keep in mind that our tracking abilities are a big work in progress and we often miss things.
Absolutely. Fullsize, uncropped, and in original colors.
Raster files like jpegs, pngs, and gifs work best. At this time, we do not support vector graphics.
No. This will not increase your chances of coverage, and may actually annoy editors and curators.
You can edit an event by clicking “My Events”, selecting the desired event, and clicking “Edit” towards the bottom of your event details. Be sure to click “Update” once you’ve made your desired changes. If you’ve already submitted this event to publications, we’ll do our best to help you, but we cannot guarantee that our media partners will update your event details accordingly.
You can delete an event by clicking “My Events”, selecting the desired event, and clicking “Delete” in the lower left hand corner of your event details. If you’ve already submitted this event to publications, you cannot delete it from SceneSquid as the event has already been distributed.
