Participants can now sign up for the event with fewer pages to get through. With a faster registration process, you will receive more participants who complete the registration—which means more money for your event.
Unlike many other online registration providers, we don’t try to sell products or services to your participants. Those extra sells that other providers push on your participants distract from your core product, your event. We want to complete as many registrations as possible without causing extra frustration from add-on sells. Of course our system can sell your merchandise and make an online store for you, but we will never push any products that aren’t tied to your event.
Often registration providers require participants to create an online account to complete registration. They continue to harass your participants with offers even after the registration process is over and make the registration process burdensome. We believe that these are your participants, not ours, so we do not require them to make an account. Our simplified registration process helps to maintain good will toward your event.
Our fees are nearly 40% lower than Active.com. This means that the cost to participants is lower with us while you maintain the same level of revenue. Lower total cost without reducing your entry fee means more participants, and more total revenue to your event.
Our registration system makes it easy for participants to share on Facebook that they are attending your event, and encourage others to join them. You have the option to turn on the social discount. With the social discount participants are offered a small discount to share on Facebook. This small incentive can translate to dramatically more shares about your event. Our referral program turns each participant into a built in marketer.
As with any online commerce, a percentage of customers won’t finish the registration process. Stride Events tracks these participants, so that you have all of their contact information. You can download each of their email addresses and/or phone numbers to contact them in assisting their completion. In addition to storing their incomplete registration the system will send them an automatic reminder. The reminder will hit their inbox within one hour of them not finishing the registration.
Most other registration companies will not show you the incomplete registrations, because they actually are producing more incomplete registrations than complete registrations. This is due to their requiring accounts, having too many pages to complete to sign up for your event, and the daunting list of extra add on sells that other systems burden participants with. In contrast, we believe that the list of incomplete registrations is a tool that you can use to grow your event, and our automated contact to incomplete registrations can easily help save you time and make your event more money.
Many registration systems have limited reporting that is arduous to figure out. Our user-friendly system offers the most relevant information and allows users to look specifically at the revenue by pay-period and tracks each source of money help you analyze your marketing efforts.
