Online tools and mobile apps are becoming more and more important in planning and managing corporate and non-profit events. Whether you’re hosting a small corporate get-together or large fundraising gala with hundreds of guests, these online tools can help you stay organized, create buzz for your event, and help your guests engage during and after the big day.
Eventbrite is a popular event organizing tool used by many businesses and non-profits. Use Eventbrite to gather registrations, sell tickets, market your event through email, and manage attendees. When creating your event page, include keywords so people can find your event, such as “networking,” “Minneapolis,” or “gala.” Use the Eventbrite app to help keep track of attendance day-of.
Events.com is another event organizing tool. Its powerful app makes planning and managing your event from your phone a breeze. Use it to track the social media participation of your guests and gather and analyze data from your event in real time. You can even use it to track guest orders, your vendors, and your inventory.
Eventjoy is another great option if you prefer to plan and manage your event by smartphone or tablet. Like Events.com, Eventjoy allows you to track your event in real time, including revenue and attendance. It does not charge service fees on tickets, even for paid events. You can even customize your event’s ticket. Eventjoy offers an app for your guests to keep them engaged and make it easy for them to share their experience on social media.
Meetup focuses more on community-based events, but can be a great tool to advertise your ongoing networking or non-profit event. Since Meetup users search for events based on their interests, use the site to market a themed event. The Meetup app makes it easy for potential guests to find you and encourages interactions among your attendees.
