What You Need to Host Your Live Event Online


The new social distancing and shelter-in-place mandates have had a significant impact on our everyday lives – closing restaurants, limiting family visits, and postponing weddings. Unfortunately, many charities and nonprofits have been forced to cancel major fundraisers and events due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet, Events.org wants to share that there is a way to host your live events online.  Here are key components you will need for a successful virtual fundraiser.

Event page 

  • The first thing you need for your online event is your registration site. This is your essential event promotion tool to create interest and drive registration. Be sure to include critical information such as the event schedule, speakers, frequently asked questions, and more. This is where your attendees will be able to purchase their tickets and submit preferences and personal information.

    Email blasts for communication

  • It is vital to stay in constant contact with all attendees leading up to your fundraiser. Send out emails to those registered about what they can expect during the online event and maybe even tease out some auction items. Get your registered guests excited, which will also encourage their friends and families to register.

    Guest check in

  • On the day of the fundraiser open check in to ensure everyone is ready for the event! Give more details on your live auction or raffle and share the schedule of events. Also, use this as a tracking tool for attendee data and post-event communication.

    Live video

  • Use video conferencing platforms, such as the new Events.org live video option, to communicate with the attendees of the event, just like you would for your in-person fundraiser. Put your emcee on camera to communicate and engage with the attendees. Bring out the auctioneer to kick off the live auction for all to participate.

    Virtual bidding

  • Event planners will be able to save themselves a lot of stress and headaches with virtual bidding platforms. These programs will be able to track and organize the different auction packages and winners to ensure a smooth live/online auction. Events.org is waiving the fee for its Virtual Bidding option to support the nonprofits and charities impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.

    Automatic ‘Thank You’ emails

  • Event planners will be able to save themselves a lot of stress and headaches with virtual bidding platforms. These programs will be able to track and organize the different auction packages and winners to ensure a smooth live/online auction. Events.org is waiving the fee for its Virtual Bidding option to support the nonprofits and charities impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.
