Splash – Plan & Manage Social Events

ss-splash
Splash is a web-application that people can use to create websites for virtually any type of social event. Not only are the event websites that people create with Splash completely customizable, but they can also be designed to include an army of add-on amenities like online ticketing, RSVP’ing, mobile check-ins and even task tracking tools.

Save money on invites and create a free Splash page to promote your next shindig. Click “Create Event” and choose between an RSVP event, ticketed event or social gallery. Input some basic information about your event and customize your page with unique photos, colors and fonts. Adding an RSVP form to your event website gives you a chance to do more than just promote your party. With Splash, you can actually add your own questions to the RSVP form as a way to collect additional guest information. You can allow your guests to bring a +1 or make your event private, complete with strict age limitations, when necessary. Splash offers a ticketing service that you can use to sell tickets to your event along with mobile check-ins and waitlist management tools.

Event organizers can take advantage of the useful party planning articles published by Splash, which include information about improving bounce rates on promotional emails, live streaming parties on social media and scanning tickets at the door of larger events. Splash has all the features a party promoter or event organizer could need when putting together a large-scale function.

Practical Uses:

  • Sell tickets to your band’s next concert
  • Invite all your friends to an upcoming birthday bash
  • Provide guests with a place to upload their own photos from an event

Insider Tips:

  • Organizers who mail paper invitations can still ask guests to RSVP online

  • Splash offers an email-marketing platform for organizers

What we liked:
