Using a simple signup process and repeated email and SMS reminders helps attract more guests for events. Event reminders keep guests up to date and increase the number of guests for your event. Enabling guests to choose how they prefer to be contacted, by SMS or email, makes reminders convenient for each guest.
Create a general RSVP process using the SimplyCast 360 drag-and-drop tool. Provide a selection of different communication methods, such as SMS and email, so each guest can select their preferred method. Offering SMS and email helps you conveniently keep each guest engaged. If a guest never checks their email, they can sign up for SMS reminders instead.
Send out a detailed event invitation before the event. Include the invitation signup form link in the invitation email. With an automated signup process, you don't have to spend time organizing guest information.
During the signup process, each guest should be able to select the communication method of their choice, either SMS or email. This information is stored so that each guest receives event messages in the way that is most convenient for them.
After a period of inactivity, the event invitation is sent out again. This process can be repeated several times as the event date approaches, for any guests who have not responded.
Guests who have signed up to attend the event are tagged so they will receive specific event messages after that point. These guests receive a thank you and learn more email or text message to confirm their event registration.
As the event date approaches, multiple reminders are sent out to each guest through email or SMS. Your staff doesn't have to take the time to update guests. Instead these automated reminders keep guests engaged.
