Slip yourself into the gown of one of your guests for a moment. You get a link to an event registration form. You scroll down. It’s got ten questions. Yawn. Is the event event worth slogging through this snooze-fest? With Typeform as your tool, event registration feels like a chat between guest and host. Throw in some sparkling personality and hospitable charm, and your event sparks excitement before it’s even begun. Typeforms work perfectly on all mobile and desktop devices, so you can reach your audience anytime, anywhere. Let the form come to them, not the other way around. We’re so confident it works, we wrote an entire article on it.
Drab decor makes for a drab event. The same goes for your registration form. So make sure it follows the dress code—customize your background to match your brand or evoke emotion. Make the most of the piping feature to recall previously entered information (no awkward “what was your name again?” moments, then). Potential attendees could still abandon ship before they get to the end of your form, so every step should build anticipation. If you’ve got an awesome video from a previous event, show it off by embedding it into the typeform (just look at how The Next Web generates excitement for their conferences). It’s worth sweating the small stuff, too. Why not change your “submit” button to a much more triumphant “book my place” or “RSVP now!”
Yep. Once you’ve received your attendees’ information, you’ll want to use it as efficiently as possible. Typeforms offer more than 500 integrations with other web apps. Use the Stripe integration to accept registration fees, the MailChimp integration to store email addresses, or the Google Sheets integration to go spreadsheet crazy. Using integrations, you can get the most out of your data by setting up complete workflows. You’ll save so much time that you’ll be able to focus on the important stuff (like ordering the dips).
Why not find it a cozy home on your website? You can embed it straight into one of your pages. Just use Typeform’s embed code, which you can copy-paste into WordPress or straight into your HTML. Oh, and if you’re too cool for websites, just share the handy URL link to your typeform. The possibilities don’t stop at submit, either. Once someone has confirmed their attendance, you could follow up with a post-registration typeform to get useful marketing information or, after the event itself, a feedback typeform to see where you could improve (those funny-smelling dips again, eh?)
