5 Reasons To Host Your Class or Family Reunion Registration Online

By Industry Leave a comment

Family and class reunions are exciting but organizing them can feel like herding cats.

Getting people to fill out a family reunion registration form will take event organization to the next level. No need to have six people bringing macaroni salad, especially when Auntie Christies is the best.

Whether you volunteered or were tasked to organize and host your upcoming family reunion, it doesn’t have to be painful or awkward. Running your class or family reunion online will help you focus on the most valuable part of your event which isn’t necessarily the revenue, but the management of people.

We believe that with our RegFox online registration system and customer support team on your side, you can focus on gathering valuable information to run your reunion!

Here are 5 reasons to switch to online registration for your next reunion!

1. Add Personality to You Reunion Page

Reunions bring nostalgia and memories. When creating your page through RegFox, make your page feel and look like yours. Create what you want, whether its photos, quotes, or videos in order to help create excitement and anticipation for those who will land on the page. Grab a class or family photo and place it in the banner of your page!

2. Use Social Media To Your Advantage

Outdated contact information from classmates or family members is common. Let’s take a break from cat memes and use Facebook and Twitter as a tool. The custom page URLs can be shared via several social media platforms or from person to person.

Our floating share buttons can exist throughout the registration page to be shared on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, email and much more! After registration, you can have your page also prompt to be shared on Facebook as a friendly reminder. You can customize a message to appear after registration to encourage your attendees to help spread the word!

3. Accurate Reunion Headcount For Easy Pre-Orders

Headcount for any event is the most important piece of data. Knowing how much to buy or reserve certain items is crucial. Common items for reunions might be merchandise (t-shirts or other goodies), meals, and even help with accommodations.

4. Easy Way To Answer Questions Ahead Of Time

Keeping your page clean and readable will increase registration. But answering basic questions for your community is important as well to save you time.

The confirmation pages and confirmation emails are where you can drop a ton of information.  You can include custom messages as well as videos, pdf.’s, and pictures. A helpful tip is to include an FAQ’s download to help answer questions about parking, nearby hotels, eateries, etc.

Additional information that can exist within your registration page could include schedules or itineraries that are useful to help your future guests make decisions.

 

5. End With Updated Contact Info For Future Events

If making your life easier isn’t a good enough reason to switch over to online registration, I hope you would consider the value of the information you will be collecting.

Having an updated database for future family reunions or follow up class reunion events will make reaching out that much easier. The connections you will help foster and make way for is irreplaceable and the heart of gathering can live on within your specific community. This data can also help you make smart decisions for any future events.
