We all want your events to launch as smoothly and as quickly as possible--having complete and correct information in Banzai Reach helps that happen. Here is a checklist of some important items to address before you begin your outreach campaigns.
Testing your Confirmation Emails
Be sure to conduct a test registration on your own registration page to make sure your Confirmation Emails are sending correctly.
Multi-day and multi-session events
Is your event part of a series? Does it have multiple days or breakout sessions? Check out this help article for tips on setting up different event types.
Make sure the date & time displayed on your registration page matches the date & time you’ve entered into Banzai Reach. Be sure to double-check the time zone.
Additional questions on your registration page
Banzai Reach can now support questions on our registration pages in addition to those that are always required with custom form fields. If you have questions on your page in addition to Full Name, Email, Title, and Company, it is important that your Banzai Reach registration page has these questions as well. You can also consider deciding on default answers for our registrants or following up with Banzai Reach registrants yourself.
It’s always an option to enter your event details and save as a draft, but it’s a good practice to set yourself a reminder to finish setting up your event in Banzai Reach as soon as you have the necessary information. If your event is left in draft status and doesn’t have a campaign created, we won’t be able to launch outreach.
Creating a campaign
After you’ve published your event, make sure to create a campaign to enable Banzai Reach to launch outreach. Outreach cannot begin without a campaign.
Using Target/Suppression lists
If you’re using Target and/or Suppression lists, it’s important to have them ready to upload when creating your audience. Download templates here. As a best practice, we recommend uploading your unsubscribe list as a Suppression Contact list.
Checking your audience size
If your target audience estimate is smaller than you’d like it to be, here are some tips for increasing your audience size. If you have already started a campaign, you can still expand your target audience by creating an additional campaign with audience updates.
