How Does it work?
Syndicating content to other third party calendars critically important factor in facilitating our Network Members’ ability to develop or enhance local/regional partnerships. Do you have community members that would like to enter their event in one place, and have it distributed to multiple calendars in the area? This module provides the ability to create that, by using your site as a single content entry portal, creating a centralized database that is capable of distributing event calendar content in for the form of API, JSON, XML, RSS, ICS/ICAL and our Artsopolis WordPress Event Calendar plugin. This improves efficiency for event organizers and your community building efforts as an organization. An unlimited number of custom feeds or calendar “widgets” are available for distribution by site administrators to community partners.
Additionally, for close knit community partners looking to share an Artsopolis database, with the use of the Syndication Module, we do offer the service of building ‘Sister-sites’. For example, a local Arts Council, Tourism Bureau, and Chamber of Commerce may wish to centralize their databases to reduce duplicate efforts, and share database upkeep efforts by each contributing with what they each specialize in. Due to the various filtering abilities within the module which allows for specific selected content to be feed to each site, and our ability to skin Sister-sites to match each organization’s individual branding, communities can take the idea of collaboration and cooperation to a whole new level, and centralize all of their community’s information.

What degree of customization is possible?
All of our sites include basic customization to align with your brand identity. This includes things like logo placement, color palette choice, footer design, globalized font selection within our standard list, etc.
Our team is capable of providing higher degrees of customization, both functionally and in regards to design elements. The degree of specificity determines the cost of our customization services.
If you would like a higher degree of customization beyond our standard inclusions, we will estimate the number of hours it will take to accomplish your goals, and include a pre-determined number of customization hours in our quote.
Standard Customization: NowPlayingNashville.com
Higher degree of Customization: CreativeSonoma.org
How much does the platform cost to use?
Our pricing takes into consideration three factors:
The population you serve affects the amount a of traffic a site will receive. We have found that Network Members who serve 50,000 people function differently than those who are serving, for example, 3 million people. The sites have different demands placed on them, and we have to price our services accordingly.
- Data Normalization and Data Mining
When building a site, the work required to 'normalize' any import data to work within our platform is always different. Some data is incomplete and may require data 'mining' to make listings appear complete, within our system. Each project is considered on a case by case basis and priced accordingly.
- Startup Cost
Your start up cost will be dependent on the modules you select and the labour required to achieve your goals. We will work with you to find the right fit of services that works within your budget. We are committed to providing our tools to those who serve the well being of their community. Reach out to discuss our many flexible options with you.
Our start-up period, which includes site construction, standard customization, and staff training, spans a 15 month period, on average. Once your site is launched, your annual maintenance fee will be due exactly 12 months from that date.
What is you payment policy?
Upon contract signing, ARTSOPOLIS requires a payment of 50% of the estimated total project cost. The remaining 50% will be due once the site is launched.
We do offer the option for 4 installment payments, once the request is reviewed and approved.
The annual maintenance fee is a lump sum, due every 12 months from the date of the site launch.
Can we request platform functionality customizations?
Platform customizations and enhancements can be requested. All system enhancements are performed by Artsopolis development staff - we do not allow outside developers to alter the functionality of the platform. Functionality customization requests often come after the development process, which are considered on a case by case basis, and treat as custom development projects, if approved. Any enhancements may be arranged at $95* per each hour of programming. We are happy to provide a quote upon request after a discovery meeting.
*Hourly rate subject to change without prior notification.
