Create an invite your audience can’t refuse

If you’re running an event, the first step is to send an invitation that your audience will love to accept. Here are a few best practices.

Maximize the impact of your email invite

Once you've provided all the details of your event in a personalized and professional way, take it to the next level to boost registration. Here's how.

Be strategic about who you invite to your next event

Use segments to target the right audience. For example, SoHo House hosts regional events and only invites people within driving distance, as they did for their recent event in Miami.

Have a clear Call to Action

The ultimate goal of an email invite is for your audience to sign up or RSVP, so make sure this call to action is clear. Virgin Experience Days does this with a giant button driving people to sign up.
