Product Preview: New Registration with Fundraising
Organizations familiar with registration with fundraising know that this event type is a good way to increase an event’s revenue. We’re excited to bring together the benefits of Classy’s Peer-to-Peer campaign with a brand new take on events to create the new Registration with Fundraising experience.
As we mentioned back in January, we conducted months of research and interviews and gone through countless iterations to bring to life a more intuitive, attendee-friendly registration experience.
New Additions to the Landing Page
If you’ve used Crowdfunding and Peer-to-Peer, you’ll be familiar with most of the Landing Page features. However, the team added new content blocks catered to events.
You’ll see a Progress Circle Block, which is a new spin on a fundraising thermometer, as well as a Location Block with a built-in map. Like the rest of the Fundraising Suite, these blocks can be hidden or highly customized, depending on your event needs. The goal here is provide you distinct spaces for event logistics and fundraising education.
Have you ever really wanted to buy something online, only to give up because of the frustrating experience at checkout?
Successful eCommerce platforms invest a lot in their checkout experience because they know getting customers to purchase from—and return to—their site depends on it.
The same goes for a registration experience. Your attendees deserve an intuitive experience that helps them easily complete their registration for your event. And, specifically for registration with fundraising, a smooth introduction to fundraising.
The new Registration with Fundraising checkout went through months of usability interviews with nonprofits so our team could learn from them and optimize the flow. In fact, the first sprint we held for the new Registration with Fundraising checkout was back in October.
Quick Attendee Management
Technology can’t solve for all of the challenges related to hosting an event, but it can help. Do you get phone calls from attendees who need to change an email? Transfer a ticket? Double-check their order?
The team brought all of this out of Classy reporting and into your event’s dashboard, so your events manager and development associate can easily search for an order, attendee, or fundraising team and edit their associated basic information.
Fundraising Benefits of Peer-to-Peer
New Registration with Fundraising will inherit all of Classy’s Peer-to-Peer features, which are continually being improved upon:
- The Fundraiser Dashboard for the fundraising basics
- Automated Milestone Emails to encourage fundraisers
- Team Fundraising option to bring a little friendly competition into the mix
