Our Event product allows you to create an Event and then you can send out an Email Invitation. In the Invitation you can add links for your website and Facebook.
If you don't want to try out our Event Marketing product Email Plus customers can use the RSVP block in the Build palette to create an event or other happening and allow contacts to respond when they open your email. Their responses will display on the Email details page with all of your other stats about your mailing and the Reporting tab with all of your other emails. You'll be able to download the responses and plan your event accordingly! Any new contacts gathered through the RSVP block will not be automatically added to a list. You can manually add them to a list or click Export Report on the Email details page to create a file, upload into your Contacts and add them to a list. If you prefer, we also have these steps in a video that you can find here. When you're creating your email:
Click the Add-Ons button to display additional block elements.
Now your contacts can respond to your event when they're reading your email.
(Optional) anyone who RSVPs for your event and isn't on your contact list will be presented a form to fill out in order to join. This is especially helpful if you're sharing your email on social media or on your website.
If you don't have Email Plus, you can always add an email link in the email and have people email you to say if they'll make it. To add a link to email you, when you are in a block, click the Link button (on the left in 2GE), select Email as the type of link and insert your email address. This will allow people to email you with their response. You would use this Link button for inserting a link to your website as well. There is also a button for Facebook that you can click to insert a link to your Facebook page.
I hope that helps!
So am I reading correctly here that there is NOT a template with an RSVP feature? This would be SO convenient. Please consider creating one. Thx
We do not have a template that does have an RSVP feature, however you can add RSVP to any template.
You would want to go into the html code view of the block you want to put the RSVP into.
Then you can put in the following html code:
You would put in the email address you wish to be emailed to for the response.
I hope that helps!
