Personalizing Digital Marketing

Implementing personalization in your email marketing campaigns can have a great impact on your event ticket sales and registration goals. By incorporating your attendees’ names in your subject line and signing off with your own, you ultimately humanize your message and have a more direct appeal to your target audience. Personalization in your marketing messages helps craft the experience for attendees before they even get to your event.

Simplifying Metrics

Successful organizers don’t just collect data, they draw out the key figures and understand how to use this knowledge to move forward and make smarter planning decisions. They make it possible by using an event management software that integrates the right tools to understand this data.

Looking Beyond Demographics

People across all demographics are preferring humanized authenticity when dealing with brands, and want to be spoken to like an actual person and not number. Organizers should look at their attendee’s motivation and goals for attending an event, and how it would be useful in their lives and careers. Grouping attendees by their rationale and attitude, rather than demographics, can help you keep your content relevant and better target your audience.

Being Responsive

While it is an absolute must to respond quickly to all your attendees, the savvy organizers know this also means that their online content must be responsive, consistent and look good on any device. Chances are that your attendees will view your event site and interact with your marketing campaigns cross device. The forward-thinking organizers should be committed to providing a great experience, even on a small screen.  

Enabling Brand Ambassadors

Though word of mouth is organic and can’t easily be faked by wily marketers, it is one of the most powerful marketing tools, and should be encouraged through a social referral program. Similar to big-name startups like Airbnb and Uber, innovative organizers amp up their event’s social power by incentivizing attendees to share their event with their networks. This lets those organizers reach new audiences and turn attendees into event ambassadors.

Getting Rid of Spreadsheets

Nothing gives you a solid migraine like a complex spreadsheet. Though everyone can relate to this, spreadsheets have still been a necessity when it comes to the day-to-day of most planners. Event management software that uses Smart Lists can automatically update the list of attendees, as well as help you easily segment contacts and filter by type of attendee. This allows you to skip the mind-numbing tasks of manually updating spreadsheets, while also giving you the power to understand your attendees on a granular level to make their experience even more personalized.

Optimizing by Outsourcing

Event organizers may feel like they are short on time in many instances, especially during crunch time. While freelancers have always been an option, it’s now easier than ever to get that extra pair of hands on-demand. Things that were originally out of reach due to lack of budget or time like a promotional event video or frequent content for the event blog can now easily be achieved.
