Most email service providers whose clients need assistance with event marketing often integrate with a third-party system such as Eventbrite.
That's not the case for Constant Contact, who today announced an onlne event marketing service designed to help their customers promote and manage registrations/RSVPs for meetings, seminars and other events.
The solution enables users to create a homepage for the event, send email invitations, set up an online calendar and provide an event link that can be distributed on any website, blog or social network. Reminders, updates, and thank you confirmations can also be sent to registrations. Perhaps most impressive is the ability of the system to process credit cards (via PayPal).
“Small businesses and organizations thrive on their ability to continually strengthen customer relationships, and hosting events is a great way to do so,” said Gail Goodman, CEO, Constant Contact.
”Event Marketing offers our customers a professional, affordable, and efficient solution for managing and promoting an event from start to finish. As with our other product offerings, Event Marketing addresses the unique needs of the small business owner or nonprofit organization manager and turns an important, but often overwhelming marketing and management task into a simple and effective process.”
The solution is priced at $15/mo (for up to five open events, unlimited invitations) but a free 60-day trial is available (no credit card required) so you can check it out.
