Kickstarting your events With a platform like ours, it’s easy to get comfortable with just doing the basics, but you could be missing out on some great features. In this post we’re letting you know about some great features that will help you make the very most of our Events module. Tip #1 - Duplicate events to save you time If you run events, the chances are there will be some that you run on a regular or semi-regular basis. If this is the case, you can use the events duplication feature to recreate an event so you don’t have to build it from scratch every time. You just need to change the dates, the url, the event code and any other relevant details and ta-da! You’ll have created the same event in seconds. Find out more in Duplicating an event post. Tip #2 - Sell relevant related items at checkout When you’re organising an event, there may be additional items you want to offer guests, such as car parking spaces or some additional materials. By using the ‘Sell extra items’ feature in our platform, you can offer extra items related to your events on the same page as the booking form so it is all done in one sale, making it a smoother process for you and the user. Find out more in Selling extra items. Tip #3 - Add a countdown timer One of the most tried and tested tactics to increase sales is to create a sense of urgency. One of the ways you can do this with your events is to add a countdown timer. The timer will tick down to the start date and time, letting the visitor know exactly how long they have left to sign up in real time. Find out more in Adding a countdown timer. Tip #4 - Join the Events webinar You can see all of the features mentioned in this article in action on our events webinar. Watch the webinar on demand on our support site.
