Here at BatchBlue, we love to party. Invite us to an event and we’re there. Ask us to throw an event? No problem, we’re on it. (We rocked SXSW last year with an amazing party for The Small Business Web.)
What we don’t always love? Event management. Sending out invites, tracking RSVP’s, updating attendees on last minute changes, getting the word out, etc. You’re trying to use email, spreadsheets, Twitter, PayPal and Facebook to organize and track your event and the next thing you know it’s a jumbled mess. You need some software to make all this stuff seamless.
That’s why we’re super excited to announce our most recent integration partner: Eventbrite! Eventbrite helps you “manage all the hard stuff—such as registrations and selling tickets—and they set you up with the tools to help your event spread virally through social networks.” I’ve used them for years and they’re awesome. Eventbrite takes all of the headaches out of planning, managing and promoting your event.
The integration process is simple. You set up an Eventbrite account ($20 in credits if you don’t already have one – Thanks Eventbrite!), build a list in BatchBook, push the Send to Eventbrite button and let Eventbrite work their event management magic. Then you get to spend your time kicking back at your event instead of worrying about managing the guest list. Check out the screencast below to see just how easy it is to use BatchBook and Eventbrite together:
This is only the beginning of our partnership with Eventbrite. We have plans for a deeper two-way integration that will allow you to send your post-event details back into BatchBook.
We hope you’ll get as much use out of this integration as we are. And as always, if there are integrations with other partners that you’d like to see, please drop a comment and we’ll add it to our list.
