How to boost the usage of Eventee
The main reason why event managers from all around the world decide to use an event mobile app is to increase engagement and attendee interaction. However, it's not just about having the app, it's more about the way you encourage your attendees to actually download and use the app. That's why we bring you these tips and best practices from our clients who have managed to boost Eventee usage to the maximum!
It's all about the timing
Probably the most important thing is timing. You should let attendees know in advance that you are using Eventee. From our experience, one week before the event is perfect. People just take their time. 🙃
In order to manage it on time, you should start with your event preparation in Eventee at least one week before the event. You don't need to have everything 100 % prepared. Even after you publish the event, you will still be able to make real-time changes which are visible inside the app right away.
After publishing your event
You should let your attendees know that they can already access the event via Eventee app. You have several options to do that:
- The most convenient way is to invite attendees straight from the Eventee administration
- Download the Magic link from your Dashboard and publish it on your website
- Create a post with the Magic Link and share it on your social media pages
- Send an email with the Magic link to your attendees
During the event
You should encourage the attendees who haven't downloaded the Eventee app yet to do so. Again, we have several tips for you 🤗
Make use of the QR code
You can spread the QR code at the venue to make it visible to everyone. Walls, posters, attendee badges, presentation during the breaks, etc. A call-to-action text like “DOWNLOAD THE APP” works well with QR code.
Make a competition
People love competitions! You can announce a competition for the most creative lecture evaluation or for the craziest shared picture on Instagram with your hashtags. Imagination has no limits! And your attendees will be even more motivated to use the app! 😊
Explain the advantages of using the My agenda feature
My agenda is a feature which is great for events with multiple parallel sessions/lectures or workshops in separate rooms. Encourage the attendees to create their own schedule in order to make the coordination throughout the event easier. Additionally, they will also receive a notification when a session they want to attend is about to get started.
Paperless and updated
Explain to attendees that your event is paperless because you want to avoid unnecessary printing. Also, mention that using Eventee means staying updated at all times via Newsfeed posts and real-time changes in the agenda which can come in handy.
Create Information cards
Another way to motivate attendees to use Eventee is placing all the important information inside the app. For that we have the feature Custom menu. You can upload texts, links, and maps (indoor or outdoor). The more you fill in, the more inclined will the attendees be to use Eventee!
Encourage attendees to ask questions via the app through live questions or get their opinion through polls! Some people are shy to ask questions aloud in front of an audience, so they would definitely appreciate the option of live questions. Especially when the question is not a pleasant one. The same works for the polls - many people are shy to express their opinion in front of the others. Motivate them to use Eventee and get rid of all of these fears!
Learn more about the feature Live Questions&Polls in the article here.
Networking without the awkwardness of cold introductions
Did you know that networking is the main driver for visiting conferences for 76% of attendees on average? Enable Networking in Eventee and encourage the attendees to make new relevant business connections! Networking will be more pleasant and efficient.
The whole magic lies in reminders and good timing. Gently remind attendees at the beginning of the event or each session that they can use the app. You can also take advantage of the coffee breaks to inform your attendees about all the benefits that Eventee offers.
We wish you a lot of positive reviews! 🖤
