Here at Event.Gives we know how much time and effort event organizers put into upcoming events, and no matter what the circumstances are we have the tools to help keep the show going...virtually!
Our ticketing platform makes it easy for event organizers to gather all the necessary information from attendees. By using mobile phone numbers for user accounts, organizers can already begin connecting with attendees no matter where they are! Event organizers can utilize the ticketing platform to create $0 or as little as $5 Registration Tickets that will allow users to follow the same flow of purchasing a physical ticket to an event.
Once tickets have been purchased attendees can view silent auction items, purchase raffle items, or make donations the same way if they were to have shown up at a physical event. Event organizers can then easily capture how many active attendees to expect and can even begin using the Blast Message feature within the “Event Messaging” tab to send text messages to their virtual attendees. Organizers can even share specific items by clicking the three dots on any given item card, select “View Item Page”, copying & pasting the URL, and include it in a Blast Message message to attendees!
Worried about how to get the word out there that you’re going virtual? No problem! Event.Gives has got you covered! With every event that is created with Event.Gives we will create a specific keyword and phone number for your attendees to text into and join your event. To find this; look at the section underneath your keyword within your “Event Settings” tab.
Better yet - we’ve actually made an Event Poster* with this information on it that you can use to share on social media posts, email blasts, or however you want to use to get the word that your event is going virtual!
*To find the event poster, go to your “Event Messaging tab” - under the Printable Materials section select the "Event Poster".
You can even use the same steps mentioned above to share individual items on a social media or email blast to your attendees! You can also include your event URL in your posts or outreach to your attendees to send them straight to bid on items! So no matter where you or attendees are at, Event.Gives is here to support your event or fundraiser to go virtual.
