Invite People to Your Events

You can have as many registrants for your event as you like. The only limitation is for live attendees. This article we will teach how to share your events, invite people to register and share some tips to maximize your registrations.

Also, bear in mind that sending invitations WILL NOT bulk register people to your events. They need to register and actually opt-in to your events.

Our Terms of Service do not allow using invitation emails for other purposes than inviting people to your events. Any other use could result in permanent account deletion and IP ban.

Share Your Registration Page

There are 2 types of Registration pages according to your needs and type of events:

  • the Detailed Registration page
  • the Light Registration page
  • Share your Detailed Registration Page

The Detailed Registration page is ideal for webinars or virtual events.

The easiest way to invite someone to your event is to share the link to your Detailed Registration page. You can share it wherever you want: social media, emailing, adverts, etc.

You can share the permalink that is located under the "Share this event" block of your Detailed Registration page. The link will still be valid even if you change your event URL for instance.

Livestorm Tip #1 👉You can share your URL registration page with an email parameter on it to pre-fill the email field. Here's an example: https://app.livestorm.co/livestorm/livestorm-on-demand-webinar?email=john@doe.com

Livestorm Tip #2 👉By adding UTM tags in your URL you can track the source of registrations (details here). This way you will know if your attendees come from Twitter, Facebook or any other source. You can even hack the UTM tags to pass user IDs to distinguish leads and actual customers. 

  • Share your Light Registration Page

The Light Registration page is ideal for meetings or if you like to keep it simple and quick to register.

To share your Light Registration Page and invite people to register, copy the link from your URL bar and share it.


Send Email Invitations

There's also a built-in invitation feature inside Livestorm . You just have to go to your event dashboard and click on "Email invites" under the People tab. For now, you can send out the invitation to the same email address only once, so please bear in mind that it's not possible to relaunch invitations for the same address.

You can send 2000 invitations per event. If you want to send more invites, we recommend you to use a dedicated emailing software (like MailChimp for instance) and just include the link to your registration page on it.

After sending out the invitations you can track the invitation status in the invitation table.

Invitation status- what does it mean? (Learn More)

  • Delivered: Email is delivered to a recipient.
  • Opened: Email is opened by a recipient.
  • Clicked: The recipient clicks the button to register for your event.
  • Deferred: The recipient mail server asked SendGrid (our mailing service) to stop sending emails so fast.
  • Bounced: When an email is attempted to be delivered, but the recipient mail server rejects it.
  • Unsubscribed: The recipient is unsubscribed from your emails

You are hosting a Recurring Event (Learn More)

We've made some changes to the overall email invitations. From now on when you invite someone to register for your event, they'll receive an invitation containing a general link to the registration page.

When they click on the link, they'll be redirected to the registration page which will display the closest session. The visitor has the option to display all upcoming sessions on the same page.

The same rule applies when you share the URL of your recurring event. When a visitor clicks on the shared link, the upcoming session will be displayed automatically for registration.


Use the Company Page

The company page is a macro view of all your upcoming and past events. It is enabled by default on your account but you can turn that off. However, this page is great if you don't have the time to build a proper event page, it is always up to date and synced with your events.

If you use the widget you will be able to embed your upcoming events for example anywhere you like: a blog, a WordPress, your website, a forum, and admin section. Anywhere where you can iframe widgets.

You will be able to customize the widget with:

  • Past | Upcoming | On-demand events
  • Languages
  • Number of events to display

Also, if you play with the height/width you will be able to modify the layout of the widget to make it fit on a sidebar for example.

You can go to our website home page, if you scroll down you will see ours for example:

How to use the company page and its widget to drive traffic to your events:

There are several ways to do this. The only limit is your imagination. This is how we do it for example:

  • Include a link to your nav on your website.
  • Put it in your email signature.
  • Put the link in your onboarding emails/messages.
  • Include the widget in your blog sidebar.
  • Include the widget in sections inside multiple pages (you will find our event sections on our home page, "features" page, etc.).
  • Etc.

Use the Registration Widget

You can embed the Registration widget for a specific event on any page of your website. Just like the Company page widget. This is perfect to capture registrations directly from your website. So typically, you could write a blog post about your upcoming event with this big influencer and add the widget for that event inside the blog post.

You can find the Registration widget either on the Event page dashboard or on the Detailed Registration page.

The widget is only available for the Detailed Registration page.


Use Your Own Landing Pages

Of course, you can add a completely custom page using Instapage or Hubspot and get registrations from there. To do it we recommend reading this post.
