A website is the best way to communicate all the vital details, collect information and entertain guests that will be attending class reunions, family reunions, weddings, or any event.
Myevent.com members can create professional looking websites (with no technical skills whatsoever) that have special features to help plan and organize any event. The website acts as a communications hub where everyone can view details of events, maps, hotel information, and much more. The website tools allow the organizer to manage guest lists, send broadcast emails, accept registrations, and sell tickets (by credit card) right on their website. There are also fun features such as photo albums, quizzes, polls, a guest book, music, video, and easy to use content management tools.
The 6 new features below give http://www.Myevent.com premium members powerful new tools to entertain visitors and make their event planning even easier.
Message Board: The message board is an interactive feature that allows any visitor to the website to post messages and upload photos. It is a great way for people to reacquaint themselves before the event and stay connected afterwards. It is a useful resource for the planning committee and gives organizers a forum to float ideas and ask for suggestions on many topics regarding the event. The message board is seamlessly integrated into the website.
Custom Forms: The custom form feature allows members to create their own custom forms for their website. Some examples of commonly used forms are: registration forms, reservation forms, surveys, contests, or any form. Visitors to the website are able to respond to specific questions right on the website and the data is stored in the members control panel, or can be downloaded as a report in Microsoft Word, or Excel.
Web Folder: Members can upload files (such as doc, pdf, jpg, gif, bmp, ppt, xls, mp3, rm, avi, mpg) to their web folder that can be linked to from any page on their website.
Budget Tool: The budget tool allows members to manage their expenses and calculate the cost per ticket for each event. It is a great way to figure out how much the event will cost and determine the cost per ticket if the member is selling tickets to the event. Dates can also be flagged when individual expenses need to be paid.
Photo Albums: Premium subscribers can upload 1000 pictures in up to 100 albums. Images are automatically resized to the ideal size for the website when uploaded.
RSS Feeds: RSS feeds are free content feeds from websites, that contain headlines, summaries and links back to full articles on the website that the feed originates from.
Users can select from feeds that are available from the Myevent.com library or they can manually add their own RSS feeds quickly and easily.
The Top 5 Reasons Every Event Needs A Website
Share Information: Posting details, maps, weather, hotels and all sorts of information regarding the event and other entertainment options right on the website helps the people attending the event find answers to any question they may have without having to contact one of the organizers each time they have a question.
Sell tickets: This feature allows event organizers to accept payment by credit card right on their website. It is much easier and quicker to collect from people when you allow them to pay with a credit card compared to asking for personal checks, so this makes the organizer's job much easier, and increases attendance at the event.
Collect Information: The website has several features to help gather information from the guests invited to the event. There are registration pages, surveys, polls, RSVP pages and more that help the event organizer plan the event.
Create A Buzz: The website is a wonderful way to reminisce about the good times that people had at previous events or at an earlier time in their life. Pictures, stories, music and video of the good old days creates a buzz that helps to increase attendance at the event.
Manage Information: Having all the information in one place helps the organizer manage guest lists, expenses, ticket payments and everything to do with the event.
