And that makes sense. If you want to connect with your attendees
before, during, and after your event, email is the way to do
it. 

Plus, you can create a truly remarkable experience for your
event attendees through email by sending event updates, reminders,
and useful information. 

AWeber’s integration with Eventbrite makes it super easy to send
ticket buyers content you know they’ll love to enhance their
experience with your business.

Step #1: Connect
Eventbrite to your AWeber account
and start sending
personalized emails to your event registrants. 

Read on to learn more about email marketing for your event with
AWeber and Eventbrite.  

What Is Eventbrite?


Eventbrite
is an online hub for scheduling events, hosting,
promoting, and managing events – essentially, it is a
one-stop-shop for selling tickets and passes to performances,
fundraisers, special events and more.

Just like you, we want to sell out our events, which is why we
use Eventbrite. But that can be easier said than done. To ensure
success, we develop a promotion strategy that generates early
interest and maintains momentum until the last ticket or
registration is sold. And you can too — with the Eventbrite +
AWeber integration.

How to collect emails from Eventbrite

When you connect Eventbrite with your AWeber account, the
Eventbrite app will add your attendees to the AWeber list of your
choice. You can send out event announcements, ticket information,
and updates straight to your attendees. 

Adding event attendees to your mailing list is a great way to
give them more information about the upcoming event. Keep in touch
with them after the event is over, thanking them for coming, or
extending invitations to future events. Staying in touch before,
during, and after an event has never been easier.

How every industry can benefit from Eventbrite + AWeber

No matter what industry you’re in, you can benefit from the
AWeber and Eventbrite integration. Here are some ideas for you.

Nonprofits

Eventbrite is a great way to promote your fundraiser.  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

Since attendees are clearly interested in your cause, chances
are they’ll want to stay in touch.

Restaurants, gyms, and other everyday businesses

If you have a business that people need to visit at a physical
location, hosting events and communicating with your list are easy.
Whether you’re hosting 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

After you get them in the door, you have a better chance of
having them return. And that’s the hard part: you’ve convinced
someone of your value. Repeat
customers
are 9 times more likely to convert than a first-time
shopper and increase word of mouth advertising.

Retail

Do you sell cool products that solve a problem for your
audience? Are some of your products new? You can hold
demonstrations showing off what your merchandise does and how it
can help. Get attendees on your email list, and you can then:

  • Cross-sell with accessories that support the main product
  • Provide coupons and sale dates, so people are eager to
    purchase
  • Share news about what’s in the pipeline for your business

If they’re interested enough to check out what your products are
about, they’ll most likely continue to be interested in your
businesses’ new developments.

Turn your event attendees into customers 

Email gives you the unique ability to create personalized
experiences for people who previously attended your events. AWeber
lets you segment the people on your email list so you can talk to
them as individuals based on interests, location, or how engaged
they are in the content you send them. 

Create a compelling offer and use it to drive customers. It
could be a discount on an incentive (free content or VIP upgrade)
with ticket purchase. 

Not sure what to write or how to set it up? AWeber has pre-built
welcome campaigns
that you can customize and instantly set
up.

Here’s an example of what an email series could look like:

Email 1: Thank you for your purchase

This email thanks your customer for purchasing a ticket, tells
them when they can expect at your event, includes links to ticket
or parking information, and introduces your company.

The goal is to start building a relationship with your new
customer.

Email 2: Freebie we mentioned at the event

This email contains an incentive you may have teased at the
event or is similar to the event’s theme.  

The goal is to build a relationship with your customers by
introducing them to content you think they will find valuable based
on their event attendance.

Email 3: 10% off early bird special on your next
event 

This email gives your subscribers a 10% discount on one of your
upcoming events.

The goal is to create a sense of urgency to convince your
subscribers to purchase a future event ticket. 

Drive more sales with AWeber Tag Support

Once AWeber’s Eventbrite integration is installed, when someone
buys a ticket to your event, they are added to your subscriber list
in AWeber. That means any time you want to connect with your
customers, all you have to do is email your list in AWeber. 

Personalization is even easier with Tag support. A Tag consists
of a keyword or phrase that is associated with a specific product.
Here are a few of the cool things you can do with AWeber’s
Eventbrite integration with Tag support:

  • Easily manage your Tags. Apply single or
    multiple Tags based on subscriber behavior or purchased products.
    View a particular event’s unique Tags at a glance. 
  • Grow your email list. Add Eventbrite event
    registrants to your list when they make a purchase or attend a free
    event.
  • Turn first-time event attendees into repeat
    customers
    . Email new customers an incentive — like a
    coupon, discount code, or free content — they may like based on
    the type of event they attended and location. 
  • Deliver emails based on a person’s event
    history.
    Tag support gives you the flexibility to enter a
    unique set of Tags for an event attended. That way, you can follow
    up with more relevant, personalized content and increase revenue
    opportunities.
  • Automate your campaigns. Easily add
    subscribers to different lists based on the events they attended
    and interests. Use advanced settings to automate campaigns that
    trigger when a particular Tag is applied to someone in your list
    .

AWeber’s Drag-and-Drop Editor makes it easy to create emails

AWeber makes it easy to introduce new events  to your customer
list in a few minutes. Set up the Tags you want to use in your
AWeber account. Drag over the element called a “product block”
right into an email, and enter the information about your upcoming
event. The details of your product will load directly into the
email.
