WHAT VIDEO PORTALS CAN BE USED?

You can embed video content from Youtube, Vimeo etc

If you have your own video content, please send us the link to your video and we can check how best to integrate it. This service would cost extra.

DESIGN OPTIONS FOR VIDEO CARDS

Videos can be integrated into any text field on your EventKingdom card. You can therefore integrate your video into an existing design or expand the text field to cover the whole card, so your video covers the card as well.

When you video takes up the whole card, we recommend to design a placeholder image below the video content, which your recipients see first when your card pops out of the envelope. The video begins to play automatically after the card has fully loaded.

Animated GIF cards

In addition to EventKingdom’s animated envelopes, you can now use animated GIFs to create special animated cards and combine them with other EventKingdom tools, like Personal Addressing, Reply and Guest management etc.

Improved Guest Messaging

Guest Messaging New and Imroved

We have improved our guest messaging service and look forward to hearing your feedback.

Messages from your recipients/guests can still be found in your INBOX on www.eventkingdom.com and can also still be forwarded to your profile email.

Where to find the new Guest Messaging feature?

Additionally all messages - SENT BY YOU – and – SENT BY YOUR RECIPIENTS/GUESTS – are displayed in a NEW MESSAGES tab inside your event.

Chat dialogue

Each message is now displayed as a chat dialogue.

This makes it much easier for you to follow the communication with your recipients/guests.

You have a much better overview of your guest’s messages and act accordingly.

Group Messaging and Reminders

In addition to all private messages –  all your group messages, e.g. reminders like reply or event reminders are also displayed on a special group message tab. This will help you keep track of any reminders you might send to your recipients.

When does the new Messages tab work?

The new messages tab works for all customers and events, who send or receive messages.

Sending Online Post:

Once the first message is sent – either by the sender or the recipient/guest – the messages tab gets activated.

Using Online Registration Management for paper invitations:

The same here. If a recipient of your paper invitation visits the reply page (with REPLY CODE or on Public event) and replies with a message – this first message will activate the message tab. If you as sender decide to send the first message – e.g. to send an event reminder to all accepted (green) guests, then you will activate the messages tab.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

Please note that replying to messages in the INBOX display EventKingdom as sender name. If you are an Enterprise customer and this is not in your interest, please only use the new messages tab to reply to messages. The sender name of a message here matches the sender name of the recipient list of this event.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Invitation and guest management with custom URL

Enterprise Plan – whitelabel service

Are you interested in sending beautiful online post by EventKingdom with your own custom URL and from your own custom email address? If yes, please keep on reading!

After purchasing the Enterprise plan we will setup your custom URL, e.g. www.events.mycompany.com so you can use your own domain and email for sending. If this is not possible since your IT needs to be involved, we can also create a new domain for you, e.g. www.mycompany-events.com and custom sender email, e.g. events@mycompanyevents.com for you.

This can take up to 5 working days.

When sending online post by EventKingdom, you will be able to send from your custom email and your recipients and guests will see your custom URL. No more EventKingdom.

Please note though that the most important elements of a successful online invitation are the sender name and email subject. Both of these can be customized by you for each sending independent of the plan you have. 90% of our customers – corporate and private – are very satisfied using our standard or professional plans.

The decision to book the Enterprise plan is mainly a marketing one. Technically, especially concerning the success of your online sending, there are no differences in quality between our standard, professional or enterprise plans.

If you want more of your own company and less EventKingdom then the Enterprise plan is certainly the correct choice for you!

Generally, one of the main benefits from sending online post by EventKingdom is that you see who has and has yet to receive your sending. We recommend to resend the sending after 4 to 5 days to those who have yet to receive it. If recipients still have not viewed your sending, you can use the free “send to yourself” option and forward personalized sendings for each recipient through your own email system. This is bound to some additional effort of course, so we recomend doing this for important recipients. Thanks to this free “send to yourself” option, we can assure you that every recipient shall receive their personal online post sending at the price of one sending.

We hope this article was helpful.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Yours Truly,

Patrick von Ribbentrop

 

Team collaboration

The function team collaboration enables you to invite colleagues, customers, friends, agencies, the bride or the groom to co-organize your event. Each invited co-organizer receives his/her co-organizer invitation email and can register a new account at EventKingdom. Each invited co-organizer has automatic access to the co-organized event and has all needed rights to co-organize the event successfully.

Team collaboration with co-organizers

Position where to find option to invite co-organizers

All co-organizers can edit the design of the cards and envelope, can make changes to the reply page settings and manage the recipient list. All co-organizers can access and edit each recipient on the recipient list, independently of who added the recipient.

This function which is included in all plans, is helpful for all types of events, where multiple people are managing an event together. Main benefits compared to e.g. “using the same account” are:

1. Each co-organizer has their own account access and password

2. Each co-organizer has their own address book and contacts. (On co-organized events, each co-organizer can additional access other organizer’s recipients on the recipient list.)

3. Actions are tracked better to see which actions were taken by which co-organizer.

The co-organizer function is e.g. also helpful for agencies. Agencies can setup events including design, reply page settings etc. and later invite the customer as co-organizer. The customer can then upload the recipients, purchase stamps and send.

If the agency is supposed to also manage the recipient list, then the customer can have his/her own access to the recipient monitoring and guest management features on the recipient list. (We recommend this, since it’s fun! – after sending, all recipients start to change their color status, from first “delivered” (white), then “viewed” (yellow) to “accepted” (green) and “declined” (red).

Please view our guest management example page for more info.

An often used feature for co-organized events is the ability to transfer stamps to another account. This feature is included n the professional plan. “Stamps transfer” is helpful if one co-organizer is setting up the event and should also take care of the billing, e.g purchasing stamps.  This is often needed if there is only one billing department in a company or only one family is financing the wedding invitation for example. The responsible account can purchase stamps and then easily transfer them to other accounts at any time.

You can find the stamps transfer option here:

Public event option (unlimited replies)

Benefit from our “public event option” and make use of your beautiful EventKingdom online post sending in every possible way, e.g. using your own mail program to forward your sending as you wish, linking your newsletter or sharing it on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

After setting up the “public event option” you will have access to a link or email, which you can use, forward or share as needed. You can keep your event open or you can secure it with a code.

Both options “link” and “email” are not personalized and show the event name on the animated envelope. Each visitor can reply on the reply page using their name and email address. All replies are grouped in the event’s recipient list. If you don’t set a guest limit yourself, there is no limit to your replies.

In addition to sharing the unpersonalized sending you can of course always add recipients to your recipient list and send out private, personalized emails. This makes sense, if you have some more important recipients you wish to address personally. The rest can register as needed on the public event.

The following events by customers of EventKingdom have led to the developement of this new “public event option”:

You have one company email for all employees

You would rather send one invitation email to one company email address than upload all your employee emails to EventKingdom. Your company email is setup to automatically forward an email to all employee emails (e.g. 5000). All employees receive the online post invitation and can reply with their name and email on the public event reply page. The number of replies is settable by you. Of course, only people, who have access to the invitation email, can access the public event and reply.  This feature can save you money compared to sending e.g. 5000 personalized online post invitations. So, if personalization is not so important, then purchasing the Professional plan which offers this public event option could be the smart thing for you to do.

Integrate invitation into your standard newsletter

A company wanted to integrate the EventKingdom envelope into their newsletter and connect it to an online post invitation. The company wanted to use it’s standard tracking tools within it’s existing newsletter system. This is now possible when you purchase the Professional plan, which contains this public event featue. After purchasing the professional plan, you will have access to a link which you can add to any image, e.g. a digital envelope in your newsletter. Your newsletter recipients can then access the online post sending and reply with their names and emails. You can use your existing tracking system to track all clicks on the image in your newsletter. Replies are neatly grouped in your recipient list on EventKingdom.

Save the date mailing

A customer wanted to send a beautiful online post save the date to their recipient list, but did not want to upload their recipient list to EventKingdom. This is now possible via the new Professional plan. After purchasing the professional plan the customer was able send himself an unpersonalized online post save the date email containing the design they chose and finalized. They then forwarded this email to their recipient list. All recipients were able to save the date and add a message if necessary.

Paper send out with online registration

A customer wanted to send paper invitations and offer an online version for event information and RSVP. This is now possible within the Professional plan. After purchasing it you can access a link on the reply page of your event. You can use this link as you wish, e.g. adding it to any domain you have. You can also ask us to organize an event domain for you. After setting up the domain the customer printed various paper products, such as flyers, posters, invitation cards etc. and included the domain for online access on the printed paper products. Any person, who has access to the public event domain, can reply with his name and email. Limits are settable by you.

Paper send out with public event option and QR code

This example is similar to example 4. In addition to printing the domain on the reply card or poster, you can add a QR code. Your recipients do not need to type in an event domain, but can access the online event version quickly with any QR Code reader or e.g. with the QR Code reader inside the EventKingdom app.

Paper send out with reply codes for online registration and guest management.

This feature adds access security to your online event and limits the registrations to the invitations you sent out. To read more please see our article “Paper invitation with personalized codes“.

HOW TO:

1. After purchasing the Professional or Enterprise plan please go to the REPLY PAGE of your event.

2. In the left side admin panel please click on EVENT ACCESS and choose “Public access”.

3. You wil see two buttons GET LINK and GET EMAIL.

GET LINK will show you the public link to your event, which you can integrate as needed.

GET EMAIL will send you the public email described above, which you can forward as needed.

We hope that you found this article interesting and helpful. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
