A deep dive into every step of the recruitment process for peer-to-peer events

One of Australia’s top fundraisers, Meredith Dwyer, will take you on a step-by-step journey through the recruitment process for successful P2P events (even in a tough climate). Meredith will draw on her experience raising millions of dollars, explain winning tactics and strategies, and share case studies from charities large and small.

In three illuminating hours you will learn all about:

Optimising conversion. How to create landing pages that stick; effective lead generation and conversion, including how to automate these journeys; optimisation of registration flows; how to convert with incomplete registrations; and how to use analytics for optimum results.

Retention strategies. Boosting retention means you don’t have to acquire so many new people. You’ll learn how to create exceptional marketing automation journeys for your supporters and other strategies to maximise retention.

Acquisition strategies. Explore all the digital marketing channels (Facebook, Instagram, display ads, programmatic advertising) and take a long hard look at audiences, creative, tracking, and retargeting.

This interactive, virtual masterclass will give you all the tools you need to bring many new supporters to your event.

Panel Discussion: The Future of Fundraising Events

Virtual. Face to face, but socially distanced. Hybrid. Zoom, Teams, YouTube. Live or Pre-record. The only thing we’re sure of is the landscape of fundraising events has changed forever.

In our not-to-be-missed plenary session, our panel of experts will tackle the questions on everyone’s lips: What’s virtual best practice? How do we connect with our donors through their screens? How do we resurrect mass participation events? Is P2P fundraising still a thing in a recession? Can you – and should you – be making a virtual ask?

Join us as they dive into the future of fundraising events: discussing how in-person events will need to evolve, exploring the untapped world of virtual, and weighing up the opportunities of hybrid and collaborative models.

Tech Demo – GoPoolit: Social Media for Good

Imagine if every post made on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram could be monetised into micro-donations for a great cause. This is the reality that GoPoolit’s unique, innovative platform can achieve.

GoPoolit is a new digital platform that connects donors from all over the world with charities through the power of social media. On GoPoolit, users create posts and share them across their social media accounts (just like they do every day), but they also tag a favourite charity. Every ‘like’ results in a micro-donation to that charity.

Simply let your followers know that they can support you on GoPoolit and let them help you a little bit more every day. It’s a no-risk, no-brainer! Find out how you can GoPoolit.

Divorcing your third-party event suppliers, taking your events inhouse and bringing your Board along for the ride.  

When Paige Gibbs joined Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, the organisation’s two peer-to-peer fundraising events were outsourced to third parties. Losing out on profit, and with no control of marketing, brand or logistics she started the process of bringing both events inhouse. 

This session will cover insourcing and upskilling (and using suppliers you trust) to turn a legacy bike ride into a highly personalised fundraising event; adding quirks to your supporter journeys; providing riders with a memorable, magical experience; and convincing your board to take a leap of faith – more than once!

Why your virtual events need a virtual campfire 

s p a c e events are about going ‘offline’ and reconnecting face to face. Mobile phones are banned. When the pandemic hit, they were forced to move their events online – but they were eager to recreate the same organic connection and networking that happens in their in-person events. 

Bringing their same event mindset to the virtual arena, s p a c e launched Australia’s Biggest Virtual Dinner Party, raising money for Lifeline. Learn how they treated their tech platform, Hopin, like a venue not just an app, and had people singing around their virtual campfire until 2am in the morning!

EventRaise2 2020 is going virtual!

 

So just what is a virtual conference?

Virtual conferencing, or webcasting as it is also known, has been around for years. You may have even attended one. For EventRaise2 it means that everybody involved, delegates and presenters alike, will access the conference via the internet from your computer, laptop, or even your smart phone.

So what’s so good about going virtual?

  • You still get to see all the great content in the program – Yay!

Going ‘virtual’ means the conference can still go ahead and you won’t miss out on the great topics, insights, case studies and inspiration delivered by our presenters.

  • You actually get to see ALL the content – not just some of it

Like many conferences, EventRaise2 breaks into concurrent sessions for part of the day, which means you have to make a choice between sessions. However, because all the sessions are recorded and will be made available online to you at least 30 days after the conference, you can access all the sessions and check out those you missed.

  • Login from your office, or home (or even the beach!)

No matter where you are, you can access the conference as long as you have an internet connection. So virtual conferences allow great flexibility and convenience for attending.

  • Cheaper pricing – 30% discount

We’ve lowered the registration price by around 30% because our costs of putting on a virtual conference are lower than for doing a physical conference and we want to make tickets more affordable during these difficult times

  • Great value multi-user access passes

It gets even cheaper (per person) if you purchase a ‘multi-user’ online access pass. There’s excellent value if you want to sign up between 2, 3 and 4 of your team.

  • No interstate travel or accommodation expenses

Many of our delegates usually come from interstate to attend – which usually means paying for airfares and accommodation – which adds to the cost. However, there’s no need to travel to attend a virtual conference so there’s no added expense.

We appreciate your support

As a small business that earns most of its revenue from conferences, we really appreciate your support at this challenging time. Extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures, and we are committed to bringing you a conference with all the great content you have come to expect from us.
