I attend a lot of events and meet ups. I even set up a few myself. Services like Eventbrite make it extremely easy and profitable to organize your own events. Eventbrite is a service that allows you to schedule events and sell tickets to them online, even giving you an online storefront for ticket sales.
Hosting an event takes engagement with your audience one step higher by allowing them to meet you face to face. It’s a great way to keep your business on everyone’s mind. But what happens when the event is over? Wouldn’t it be great if you could add those attendees to your email list so you can keep in touch with them after the event is over? Well, thanks to Aweber, now you can!
How To Integrate Eventbrite with Aweber
The new Aweber Eventbrite app will add your attendees to the AWeber list of your choice. Not getting the email address of event attendees is one of the biggest mistakes I see event organizers make. Imagine how much better you would be doing if you could follow up with all event attendees? I’m really excited about this new integration feature.
Integration Aweber with Eventbrite is super easy to do. Here’s how to do it in six easy to follow steps.
Step 1: In your AWeber account, click the My Apps link in the upper right hand corner fo the page.
Step 2 Scroll down to find the Eventbrite app and click the Enable button.
Step 3: You may be asked to log in to Eventbrite at this point.
Step 4: You will then be asked to allow the connection between Eventbrite and AWeber. Click Allow to continue.
Step 5: This should take you to the Connected Apps page back in your AWeber account. Here, find the Eventbrite app and choose what list you like attendees to join.
If you need to add attendees to specific lists based on what event they sign up for, continue to step six. Otherwise, you’re done!
Step 6: Checking the “I want to add people to different lists based on the product they buy.” box will allow you to do just that.
Choose the event from the left, the list you’d like that event’s attendees to join from the right, and click the Add button to add this as a rule. You can create as many rules as you have events.
How To Use Aweber with Eventbrite
No matter what industry you’re in, you can benefit from the Aweber and Eventbrite integration. Here are some ideas for you…
Want to run a fundraiser? Eventbrite is great for that! Since attendees are clearly interested in your cause, chances are they’ll want to stay in touch. Once attendees are added to your email list, you can keep them updated by sharing:
- How much money is raised throughout the month/year
- Ideas and polls for future fundraising events
- Other ways they can help your organization
Restaurants, Gyms and Other Go-To Businesses
If you have a business that people need to visit, events will be even easier for you. Whether it’s a free tasting night or an open house, it’s all about letting your community know your doors are open. Once they’re on your email list, you can share:
- Special occasions and events held throughout the year
- Membership discounts
- Bring-a-friend incentives
Do you sell cool products you think people could use? Are some of your products new? You can hold a demonstrations showing off what your merchandise does and how it can help your audience. If they’re interested enough to check out what your products are about, they’ll most likely continue to be interested in new developments in your industry. Get attendees on your email list and you can then:
- Cross-sell with accessories that help the main product
- Provide coupons and sale dates so people are eager to purchase
- News about what’s in the pipeline for your business
Live Internet Marketing Events
If you host live Internet marketing events, and you don’t get your attendees onto an email list, then you’re not a real Internet marketer. I won’t even list the things you can do as follow up to the event because there’s just too many!
