With our new Eventbrite integration for Batchbook, you can manage your invitation lists and follow up with attendees. This will help you not only pack the house, but get real value from your event by making sure you are doing the right follow up with the folks who attended.
How it Works
This is a two-way integration. You can send contacts from Batchbook, or pull them in from Eventbrite.
Export to Eventbrite
You can send any of your Batchbook lists over to an existing or new Eventbrite list. Your Batchbook lists are built on advanced search, so you can narrow down to specific segments of contacts based on things like location, the last time you communicated with them, or any of your custom fields.
Import from Eventbrite
You can also import contacts from Eventbrite. Choose which contacts to import based on your events and whether they reserved tickets or not. This is great if you invite a lot of people to your events but only want to follow up with people who get tickets. Importing people who attend a certain event will automatically tag them with the event name, so you can quickly create a list for follow up in Batchbook.
Fill ‘Er Up!
Whether you are selling tickets or hosting a free event to drive sales, you want attendees. Mine your Batchbook account to find just the right people to invite. Here are a few ideas to help you build a relevant list for your invitations:
- Build a list based on location if you are doing an in person event. Find everyone you know in the city where you are hosting and make sure they hear about it!
- Invite past attendees. If you do multiple events, like concerts, make sure you notify previous attendees. You can use tags or custom fields to keep track of who attended what event.
- Reach out to your hot leads. If you are hoping your event will drive sales, make sure your hot leads get an invite. Use custom fields in Batchbook to track the status of your contacts.
- Find people who are more likely to attend. This may be people who have purchased a certain product or who have attended an online webinar. Track this information in Batchbook so you can easily add them to your invite list.
After the Event, Follow Up
No matter what your goals are for your event, some follow up is usually in order. If someone bought a ticket and attended your show, send a thoughtful thank you note. If they attended a class, send some additional educational material and a discount for your product or service. And of course, if your event is all about generating sales, it’s the follow up that will put the money in the bank.
By importing your event attendees into Batchbook, you will be able to track all of your interactions with them. Assign To-Dos to each of the contacts if you need to make personal follow ups with them. You can also create a list of everyone who attended so you can review it to make sure no one is being forgotten about. With the right follow up, you can make sure each of your events is a smashing success!
