Слайд 1

Race day is approaching. You’re under pressure to keep costs low and registrations high.

Слайд 2

To help you save time and sell more, we asked 9 race directors how they selected their registration partner.

Слайд 3

Слайд 4

Here are their top 10 tips.

Слайд 5

Tip 1 Use an intuitive, DIY platform

Слайд 6

Instead of wasting time waiting for your registration partner to make manual changes…

Слайд 7

Dana Point Turkey Trot went from manually troubleshooting 400 registration errors with their old registration partner...

Слайд 8

...to having no errors with Eventbrite.

Слайд 9

...avoid registration errors and make updates yourself, instantly.

Слайд 10

Our main goal was to figure out the most efficient way to minimize the manpower needed and have the flexibility to change event details because every event is unique in nature. Eventbrite is totally seamless. It’s easy and you can do it yourself. —Tunnel to Towers

Слайд 11

Eventbrite was the only system capable of providing solutions to the many nuances of our registration structure. Not only is Eventbrite intuitive and easy to use, their team is flexible, creative, and provides outstanding customer service. —FitOne

Слайд 12

Tip 2 Save time on customer service

Слайд 13

Stop spending your time answering questions about registration...

Слайд 14

Dana Point Turkey Trot had a 90% decrease in incoming customer service calls after switching to Eventbrite.

Слайд 15

In our first year using Eventbrite, we saw a decrease in incoming phone calls by about 70%! We love the ‘Contact the Organizer’ link directly on our registration page. Also, the integration of our website and social media sites helps us to better inform our registrants before they have to pick up the telephone.” —FitOne

Слайд 16

… and instead get your questions answered by your partner’s 24/7 customer service .

Слайд 17

We were truly blown away by the Eventbrite customer service… We were always greeted with a smile on the other end of the line, and there was no question too simple or too complex. —Longhorn Run 18

Tip 3 Increase sales with faster registration

Слайд 19

Instead of losing sales because of a complicated registration process...

Слайд 20

It was important to us to have a platform that registered people quicker. We felt like many of the legacy endurance sports registration platforms were getting bogged down in the details, when people really just wanted to sign up quicker. —Easy Day Sports

Слайд 21

...make registration fast and easy for your participants.

Слайд 22

After switching to Eventbrite, Tunnel to Towers had a Image or graph FitOne had a

Tip 4 Sell more with free promo tools

Слайд 24

Use your partner’s free promo tools to attract new participants...

Слайд 25

...and find out what promotions are most effective to keep growing each year.

Слайд 34

Working with Eventbrite has helped us sell more tickets. We’re able to track who’s clicking from where, how many people view the link, and if that results in a sale or not. Anyone who’s as data obsessed as I am will absolutely love Eventbrite’s backend. —Dana Point Turkey Trot

Слайд 35

Tip 6 Drive buzz and sales with social media

Слайд 36

Use intuitive social integrations to sell more registrations...

Слайд 37

Social media is one of our best marketing tools, and Eventbrite makes it easy to share that they are attending on Facebook. A huge portion of our event traffic comes from Eventbrite’s social sharing tools. —Tunnel to Towers

Слайд 38

...and turn participants into followers.

Слайд 39

Слайд 43

With Eventbrite, the Longhorn Run had a

Слайд 44

...so make it easy for participants to register on-the-go.

Слайд 45

Not only does Eventbrite make our pages reflect our brand, they also make it really easy for attendees to sign up with their two-step registration process, both online and through mobile. —Crescent City Classic

Слайд 46

Tip 8 Streamline on-site sales with a free mobile registration app

Слайд 47

Use mobile to enable on-site registrations and shorten check-in lines...

Слайд 48

The Eventbrite Neon mobile app enabled a reduction in on-site registration time for Wendy Walk.

Слайд 49

Before, we had to rely totally on preregistration, and were limited to cash... Eventbrite Neon has enabled us to register walk-ons at the event, which is probably 30% of our attendees. And we can now take credit cards for raffle and auction items during the event. —Wendy Walk

Слайд 50

The Longhorn Run saw a

Слайд 51

... all while using fewer check-in devices than ever.

Слайд 52

1.5x reduction in devices needed at check-in for Human Movement Management.

Слайд 53

Tip 9 Shorten lines with dynamic bib assignment

Слайд 54

Use Dynamic Bib assignment to shorten lines and streamline entry...

Слайд 55

Human Movement Management saw a

Слайд 56

We love that Eventbrite has incorporated Dynamic Bib into Eventbrite Neon. We really like knowing that everyone is easily tied to a bib for liability and legal purposes. It’s a comforting thought while on-site. The entire check-in process is so seamless and quick! — Human Movement Management

Слайд 57

... so you can keep registration open until the starting gun goes off.

Слайд 58

The Dynamic Bib assign feature is a game changer. The days of spending hours pre-assigning bibs and having 20+ volunteers to hand out bibs at pre-race packet pick-up are gone. It is the most innovative thing we’ve seen. For putting on shorter races like 5Ks, it was important to keep registration open as long as we could. With Dynamic Bib assign, we can now leave online registration open all the way until the gun goes off. — Easy Day Sports

Слайд 59

Tip 10 Integrate fundraising and registration to boost donations

Слайд 60

Empower participant fundraising by integrating Crowdrise in your registration...

Слайд 61

Tunnel to Towers saw an 11% increase in fundraising per participant after integrating Crowdrise and Eventbrite.

Слайд 62

Our first year using Eventbrite and Crowdrise was our most successful year yet. Last year it took around six minutes to register and create a fundraising page, and this year it dropped down to two! Instead of sending people to two platforms, a participant can register on Eventbrite and immediately be asked if they want to fundraise. It’s totally seamless. —Tunnel to Towers

Слайд 63

...and collect credit card donations day-of, no WiFi necessary.

Слайд 64
