You go to great lengths to create events that are fun, creative and have an element of excitement. You go to great lengths to understand what has worked in the past and what didn’t. So much of your time is spent crafting and designing ‘save the date’ cards and direct mail invitations. Why not channel those efforts right onto your event site? Creating an event site that captures the look and feel of your direct mail pieces and your organizations’ brand can help shine a light on your team as thought leaders and forward thinkers. Fundraising event planning is not a new concept, but creating a mini-website about your event is. This is a site that can not only describe your event, but provide a platform to thank the groups and individuals that contributed to the success.
Mercy Haven, located in Islip Terrace, NY, created a fully branded golf event site using our tools and took advantage of the ability to create more than just a page to sell tickets to their golf event.
Committee Page: Highlight and thank your committee who has worked so hard to put your event together. This is the public thank you that can keep them engaged and on board to help in planning your next event.
Sponsor page: Give your sponsors a web presence. As your sell each sponsorship, place their logo on a page within the site to highlight their support of your event. You can make their logo clickable and drive additional traffic to their sites. This could be of tremendous value, especially if you are trying to attract new sponsors.
Other page ideas: A schedule of the day, honoree bios, and, of course, an “About Us” page are all ideas for additional sub pages which you can easily create on your event site, rather than cramming it all onto one page a downloadable PDF.
Take advantage of the tools and support available to you. Our team will be glad to help you take the steps.
