Eventasuarus allows event professionals to publish and promote their event to major social networks in one click, providing a unique dashboard to manage, collect and engage with RSVPs across different platforms.
UPDATE: As of the 25th of January 2012 I've become an investor of Eventasaurus, read more here.
I am rarely ecstatic when new event startups launch. Most of the times we get yet another ticketing website and the fun is over. If in 2010 Lanyrd and Plancast really introduced some innovation to the event world, I am happy to say that I bet on Eventasaurus to win our hearts in 2011.
What is it about?
Like a “Tweetdeck for Events”, Eventasaurus connects the major event products and platforms online so you can control them all from one place. Designed by event managers, for event managers, Eventasaurus automates a lot of your repeat tasks and brings your data together into one place for you to easily process including:
- Create events on all the major social networks automatically.
- View the definitive attendee list—from across all your event pages.
- Be responsive and active on your event pages, without spending all day doing it.
A great video they put together:
Why did they come up with this idea?
I had a chat with Eventasaurus, this is what they had to say:
On a practical level, this means that you could create events across multiple websites and as you sell tickets, your attendees can be automatically added to your excel spreadsheet. At the click of a button, you could view the number of decision-makers attending, the rich social profiles of the companies and guests attending. You could see where most of your ticket purchases are coming from around the web and automatically reward your best referrers.
After your event has ended, you could publish a report for your sponsors to show the demographics of those who attended and the overall sentiment around your event. By connecting these services together, you can have Eventasaurus do all the heavy lifting for you, gather all your data in the form you need, and be informed about how people are talking about your events.
It may sound unbelievable but most of this information already available online, yet we rarely have the time or manpower to collect and process it all, especially with our next event just around the corner. We have all spent too long without a set of powerful tools to help us get our work done faster and better. We knew that this product must come from inside our industry, and we’re committed to bringing it to you.
What are the benefits?
Most event marketers publish their event on Facebook, Linkedin, Plancast, Lanyrd etc. The more, the merrier. Right? Well yes but how do you manage RSVPs on different platforms, how do you make sure that if someone asks a question on LinkedIn you can immediately reply to that?
The guys at Eventasaurus were smart enough to understand that event planners need their own Tweetdeck to easily post their event to and manage RSVP on different social networks.
This translates in an immense time saving opportunity and ensures a cohesive presence across the web. Nice!
