Successful Event Registration Confirmation Email: Examples


If you have an event website or application that asks a new user to confirm their email address when registering, a conference registration confirmation email will help make the registration process easier and more convenient for the user as well as allow you to increase the conversion rate of visitors to users. About registration confirmation emails. Registration confirmation emails are used to confirm an event registration and online signups as well as to confirm a payment transaction. To increase registrant engagement with your product or service, a helpfu l event registration confirmation email sample will be useful to follow. The importance of registration confirmation emails. Confirmation emails are sent so that the client can confirm their subscription to a newsletter, order in an online store, book tickets, register for a webinar or your event, etc. An email newsletter is the most effective tool for increasing lead conversion. The ROI of this marketing channel reaches 3800%, which means that every $1 spent brings a $38 profit. And despite the fact that the confirmation letter is not as personal as other types of email newsletters, its use has numerous advantages for your event business. . What makes a good event registration confirmation email? A perfe ct event registration confirmation letter e stablishes immediate communication without boundaries and makes the whole user experience seamless and more comfortable while shortening the time needed to achieve the ultimate goals. Key mistakes & pitfalls when creating a registration confirmation email . What happens after the user indicates his or her email in the registration form and sends the form to the server? There may be several possible scenarios, both good and bad, to deal with. . The first option is a good one: You send an email and immediately give the recipient access to the main functions of your website or application, simultaneously reminding the user that it would be nice to follow the link from the email to stop any future reminders and to gain access to all functions, without exception. If the email address is not important to you and you can give partial access without confirming the mail, you should always do that when able. But this is not applicable in all cases, so this is the number one challenge. The second option is worse: The confirmation email for event registration is sent, the appli cation shows a half-empty page with the message “check your mail,” and the sequence of actions ends. In this case, it is sad to look at the event sites that pay Google or other search engines for each attracted visitor, seed numerous landing pages, try to squeeze the maximum conversion percentage, and simplify the registration form as much as possible, only after submitting the form for the user to be left to the mercy of fate. Don’t let that happen. . Build a seamless registration process, hold the user’s hand through each stage, and do not lose his or her attention for a minute! After sending the registration form, show a large, bold link to the user’s mail service in the center of the screen. Design it be user friendly and simple. Do not let your audience get distracted from their primary goal of registering for your event. . Best examples of event registration confirmation emails.

To make the best confirmation emails, remember that email subject lines will get cut off if they’re too long, so keep them short and sweet, particularly on mobile devices. Also keep the following in mind when creating email subject lines: Use a familiar sender name. Avoid the ‘no-reply’ sender name. . Use personalisation tokens. . Segment your lists. . Don’t make false promises. Tell them what’s inside. . Time it right. Personalise your email lines for your customers. Recommend related products to up-sell and cross-sell, etc. Promote customer referrals. Offer a discount on their next purchase. Tips for writing your email. Below are some simple but very important tips. Experiment and use A/B testing to see which elements of event registration confirmation text work best for you. Wow your customers. The first impression plays a big role even in email marketing. A confirmation letter introduces customers to the brand, so make sure to create relevant and interesting posts. Make your confirmation letter short and informative. User attention spans are getting shorter. Your letter has only a few seconds to attract the reader and convey the main idea. Be original. Using email templates is good, but if you want to make your brand recognisable, create your own design. The extra effort will be worth it. . Adapt mailing lists for mobile devices. Today, more and more people are checking their email on the go, so create responsive emails or use the templates that GEVME service offers. Your newsletters should look as good on a smartphone screen as they do on a computer screen. Add a CTA. Of course, a confirmation letter is a transactional letter, but why limit yourself?

Going Paperless: Why sustainability at events is no longer a ‘Nice-To-Have’

Event Industry News

As the world focuses on reducing plastic waste and news stories seemingly pop up on a weekly basis criticising festivals, exhibitions and other large events for the rubbish left behind, now is the time for event organisers to consider the lasting impact their events may have on the environment around them. Venues all over are taking steps to lessen their carbon footprint; and of course, the waste they’d have to clear up at the end of it. Yet we believe there’s something being all too frequently overlooked in this renewed spotlight on sustainability – and it’s often critical to lead capture! Even in the age of digital marketing , the humble business card is still lauded as the most popular way to quickly exchange details, not to mention the fact that they’re often left on exhibition stalls alongside leaflets, brochures and other paper materials. Minimal effort is required and basic admin tasks can be taken later on to ensure leads are properly captured. With so many different types of business card, leaflet and brochure available, looking ever more creative, they’re actually often non-recyclable, despite popular misconception. Even when they appear to be made from standard paper, there can be toxic inks and paints as well as foils and plastics on the surface. Chucking them into the recycling bin isn’t always an option, but it tends to happen without a second thought. In the UK, over 12.5million tonnes of paper is used every year – that’s the equivalent of a forest the size of Wales! Yet only around 80% of the paper used is recycled. Whilst most councils do have adequate paper recycling facilities widely available, less paper use is still better than excessive, and, as mentioned, not all of it can be recycled anyhow. This all said, it’s 2019. Event technology has moved on from tiny cards and magazine-style brochures, and those looking to organise notable, memorable and most importantly, environmentally ethical, events should be looking to implement paperless policies: and instead offer exhibitors and attendees a new option. Event organisers can now look to lead by example in their sector. yellobox is a portable and rechargeable device that can capture attendee data and register interest for marketing and lead purposes. Event attendees are able to pass on their info to those they choose by tapping a yellow card against this device. This allows conferences and exhibitions to be entirely paperless – negating the need for recycling and clean-up afterward, as well as saving those present in printing costs and extra goods to carry about and set-up with! No app or download is required, real-time event analytics can be captured and monitored, and a social media style feed can be followed by attendees to help gamify and enhance their overall event experience. Using event technology to lessen the environmental impact of large events need not be complicated or expensive. yellobox’s integrated function with form gives fantastic added value to organisers, exhibitors, speakers and attendees alike… and that’s before we consider the effects on trees!
