We just released 2.1 of our Big Data solution designed for digital marketing OEM’s. You can use it for free to create and promote your events by sending real calendar invites to track RSVP’s from your customer’s Google and Outlook calendar clients.
Just create a calendar invite in your Google or Outlook calendar and invite us to your event with this email address: email@example.com. We will send you a CalendarSnack notification email with all the information needed to get started.
In 5 seconds I created a CalendarSnack and received the Calendar Code for Web Site Embeds, MailChimp Call to Action Embed, a Calendar Landing Sign up Page and instructions on how to send direct Calendar Invites for the event using a subscribe email address. All of these sending options track Calendar Invite RSVP’s for the event in the CalendarSnack reporting engine.
If you are an OEM and purchase the service provider edition you will have the ability to view the event analytics of the all the RSVP’s for the calendar events in your domain. We can customize this for your brand with whatever domain you want to use for RSVP communications.
This is a completely headless and serverless design. All built on a AWS stack so we can get you up and running in 30 minutes in your AWS account.
There are 100’s of use cases for OEM email marketing platforms and major brands using our technology. As of this blog posting there are 5 Billion mobile phones that have a calendar application onboard. That’s a lot of opportunity to promote and track RSVP’s for your events. You can get the PDF workbook version here for offline. Click Here.
As we wrap us this year, we are getting ready to release our production product. Here is a quick snap shot of our MailChimp RSVP calendar invite tracking. See steps here, along with video and PDF guide. Happy Holidays from the team here at 31events.com!
So here is the use case. You have tried a Calendar Snack. You like it and you say wouldn’t be cool if I could upload an email list to send calendar invites to people that want to get direct Calendar invitations from me so I can track the RSVP’s? (Today we support CTA’s in web embeds and in Email vendors like MailChimp and 20+ others. )
We are working on this for our next build for January 2019 release.
So you create a calendar invite on your calendar client of choice – Google, Outlook or Yahoo and just invite us to your event with this email address ->firstname.lastname@example.org< . You will then receive your calendar snack email with all the information in it, including how to bulk upload a small email list for direct calendaring sending and RSVP tracking. Once you upload the list you will be able to review and confirm the send.
