3 Tips for Event Night Success with Winspire Fundraising Software

Posted by Grace Neumann

As all nonprofits know, the key to event night success is preparation, preparation, preparation! For those using Winspire software to launch your event -- be it through event registration, raffle ticket sales, auction bidding, or something else -- we wanted to give a couple tips to make sure the launch of your campaign is a roaring success! 

Utilize Test Mode Before Publishing Your Experience 

If you've been keeping up to date with our blog, you may have noticed that last month we launched Test Mode! Test Mode allows users to test the full donor experience, from start to finish. This will help users identify any potential errors or glitches ahead of launching their experience. We recommend running a couple transactions through Test Mode before publishing your experience so you can ensure all systems are a go and ready for launch. 

Have Donors Pre-Save Credit Card Info

Another highly requested feature that was recently released is the ability to pre-save credit cards to user profiles ahead of event night! When previewing your auction site or purchasing event tickets, users have the ability to create a login and save their credit card information, so that on event night when the bidding is hot, they save precious minutes and can place their bids quickly with ease. 

Don't forget a marketing push

The best way to raise the most funds and increase your reach for your experience is to share, share, share! If you don't already have a marketing plan in place, we recommend: 1) sharing your experience on your organization's social media channels (and encouraging your board members, staff, volunteers, and supports to share as well!); 2) sending email blasts to bring awareness to your supporters inboxes; 3) create a QR code using your page's unique link and put up posters around town!

We hope these tips help you prepare for your next event, and we're crossing our fingers for a successful experience!
