In less than 30 minutes, you can set up your event with all your details, add your logo and graphics and include location information with a Google map. Add the registration link to your website or include it in an email and spread the word easily using the social media links within the program. Eventbrite also provides special email invitations to be issued and once registered, email reminders or followup emails can be sent. Add countdown buttons and event calendars to your site to further promote your event. Sign-in sheets and name badges can be printed from the program ready for your event.
Both of these programs have a free iPhone app which allows you to scan tickets for attendance, monitor attendee numbers, and access sales and financial reports. Eventbrite allows you set an event as repeating with a click in a box while Eventarc events are set as repeating by copying the event for different dates. This means that you can use the programs for Sunday morning programs, allowing parents to register their children either from home or using check-in stations in the foyer or using mobile devices. Pretty versatile? As the end-of-year activities hover on the horizon, it might be worth a bit of time to check out the potential of these programs.
