PRODUCT TIP - USE a web button to increase entries

Did you know that web buttons have proven to increase entries by as much as 67%? Using a web button will make online registration for your event or club more accessible than ever before, giving you an increase in participation.

Including a text link for registration somewhere on your website will not generate the interest you need. Instead, place a web button on your homepage (near the top on the right side) and the eyes of users will instinctively fall on it. Active's usability experience has shown that a shiny button is more likely to be clicked.

Active's RegOnline product will generate a button for you - you even have a choice of colours! The button designer is located under Additional Resources in the RegOnline Manager. You can easily create code for a web button on your event website, registration form or event calendar.

Active's registration system now integrates with Everyday Hero, the UK and Ireland's premier online fundraising platform, to provide a more seamless event registration and fundraising experience. Organisers can easily register attendees for their events or clubs in addition to providing them the opportunity to set up a custom fundraising page, contact potential donors and accept online donations. Whether it is a charity event, a community gathering or a sports fundraiser, the benefits of a registration and fundraising integration are exciting for both the charity, the attendees and the organiser.
