Planning for a Poppin’ Party

image

It’s summertime and that means lots of big parties; whether they be for your business, family or major life events. If you’re like most people, you get a little stressed out making sure that these party plans are perfectly orchestrated and that everyone will have a great time.

So, here’s a short-list of tips to make sure your party is fail-safe!

List & Organize: Make a list of everything you need to give your bash panache. Every time your pick up one of your list items, cross it off and put it in a designated place. This way when it comes to set-up time, you’ll have everything you need in one location and won’t have to run around frantically.

Themes: Creating a theme for your party can help you more quickly decide what you need, including music, décor, food and drinks. A pro tip is to create a themed hashtag, that added to your invitations, will help guests get into the mood for your party. It will also make them comfortable because they’ll know what to expect and and how to post on social media so that their images, videos and texts can be placed into a cohesive event site to enjoy later.

Evites: Be green and send your invitations via email. This also gives you the option to easily add an RSVP button and keep track of who’s coming.

Self-Serve Bar: Create a cute self-serve bar with a few different liquors and some basic mixers that go along with your theme. This will allow guests to make their own drinks and their own fun!

World Cup Wrap-Up

image

It was an exciting World Cup and we were able to capture the spirit of the whole thing through event sites for each of the games. It was a unique experience seeing what happened off the field and behind the cameras.

The happiest moments have to be the German team’s faces and of course the faces of their fans. On the other hand, we have never witnessed such sadness as the Brazilians watching their team lose at such a late stage.

Without the event sites we would have never been able to feel these feelings along with the people who attended the matches in real life. We hope you watched along with us and absorbed every smile, tear and cheer during this massive sporting event.

See you at the next event!

Making Events that Shine: The RSVIP Club

Let’s face it, going out to a club can be touch and go; not knowing which ones have the vibe you’re looking for and the music you love to dance to. That’s precisely why we’re highlighting The RSVIP Club this week. This promotion and marketing company out of Houston, Texas is using event sites to give everyone a first-hand look into the hottest spots in west!

Going through the events puts you right in the center of the action, with world class DJ sets, VIP bottle service, sexy men and women dancing the night away and the overall feeling of being at those clubs. We think they’ve done an excellent job of using mobile sites to attract and excite new guests as well as create memories for the guests who were there to hold onto (or help them remember the night if it got a little crazy).

Warning: some of these events have adult music and dancing NSFW

Startup Weekend Denver 2014

Today’s blog post is dedicated to a user that created the event site of the week! It was all about Startup Weekend Denver 2014.

A little about the event:
Startup Weekend is a global network of passionate leaders and entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate, and empower individuals, teams and communities. Come share ideas, form teams, and launch startups. All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

And now for what you can’t put into words…

Marketing Your Event to Potential Guests

image

To state the obvious, a successful event cannot be successful without attendees. And since it’s not easy to get people to come to all types of events, you must make sure to
market your event wisely before it ever begins.

Here’s how you can use Events.Moment.me to market your function and build up your guest list.

  1. Use all of the tabs to your advantage. When creating your event site, be sure to add in as much information as you can, including schedules, important names and fun details about food and breaks. You can also mention the hashtags you’d like guests to use when posting images, videos or texts during the event. Any knowledge you can give guests ahead of time will prepare them to have a relaxed and productive time.
  2. Get guests to share the event site. If you can email your guests with your info-rich event site ahead of time and ask them to login for personal views and share with their peers, you will already have them engaged and won’t have to do as much heavy lifting come event time. This will also give you an open line of dialogue with your potential guests in case they have questions or want you to add anything to your event site. You can even throw in a prize as incentive for sharing and signing in early.
  3. Entice guests by re-upload images pertaining to the event. By simply pressing the camera icon on the bottom of your event display, you can upload images directly, before your event starts. This will give guests a little insight into the “feel” of the event and encourage them to post their own images, videos and texts when the time comes.

The World Cup – An Event to Top All Events

Unless you’re living under a rock, you probably already know that the World Cup is taking place in Brazil right now and is, most likely, the top sporting event in the world. It’s massively appealing to soccer lovers, but it also presents a wonderful opportunity to show off how comprehensive a mobile site can be when covering a large, multi-venue event (this technology can also be applied beautifully to any of your events).

In order to capture the whole thing, we created a site with many micro-sites linked into it, corresponding to every event of the World Cup. The main attraction of the site is the big embedded display at the top that highlights the best matches and is updated regularly to keep it fresh and on-point. Have a look and see how the “big screen” draws you into the excitement of the event and how the videos and images create a complete depiction of what’s happening in Brazil right now.

We want to see your events come to life as much as this one. Get started today!

Focusing on Video

image

We’ve all heard the old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words; leading us to believe that a video is worth millions! With video integration, you can add loads of value to your event site by asking guests to upload and hashtag their videos as well as images and texts.

It’s delightful to get a site full of images from all angles of an event, but when those images are interspersed with video, you get richer coverage than ever before. And when it comes to advertising your event planning or venue, rich coverage is priceless.

Have a look for yourselves…

Before video integration

After video integration

So remember, get guests to post and hashtag their videos!

The Moment.me for Events Team

Engage Your Fans

We’ve got some more helpful advice for you to ponder :)


Today’s tip: Engage Your Fans

We offer a variety of smart tabs that will really help you get viewers engaged in your event site.
A few of the best tabs for engagement are:

  1. The “who’s there” tab which shows guests (and onlookers) who has checked into the event. Because it’s always fun to see who you might run into.
  2. The “information” tab allows you to write a little bit about the event and give people a clear idea of what your goals are for the event or some interesting facts about the venue.
  3. The “map” tab is always great to add, especially if your venue is a little off the beaten path. People may want to be fashionably late, but they don’t usually want to be lost, flustered and extremely late.
  4. The “share” tab is a must have if you want this event site to go viral. It gives your guests the option to share the site with all their contacts, even while the event is still live!


Go get their attention!
