Corporate and industry events are some of the best marketing tools out there. They expose your brand to the public, help create connections with prospects and clients, and allow your company to share its expertise with those who want it most. However, none of these perks mean much if you can’t fill seats—or Zoom squares.

How to Get People to RSVP to a Corporate Event
- Get People Excited
You know how great your event is going to be. Start by spreading the word! Whether you advertise your event on social media, via email, or on your YouTube channel, let your target audience know about this event on the horizon. You increase your reach if you understand where your target audience spends its time.
Once they understand the value they will gain from your event, make it easy for them to register. This is super easy if you use a dedicated reservation system!
- Personalize Your Event
You know your clients and ideal audience better than anyone. Use this knowledge to include personal touches in your event information and reservation process. If you work with TeleDirect, we’ll help you create customized tablets and letters. We also offer personalized scripts and responses to help you better connect with your potential attendees.
- Follow Up With Leads
Sure, there are plenty of fancy ways to increase your corporate event RSVP count. But have you considered just…asking for an RSVP? There’s no need to be sneaky! The truth is, many times, all potential attendees need to officially RSVP with a “yes” is a gentle nudge.
The best way to follow up with your leads? Ask your friends at TeleDirect to do it for you. It’s kind of our “thing” after all. Our outbound calling services feature live agents who can speak personally to your leads, get them excited for the event, and answer any outstanding questions they may have.
- Track Your Response Rates
By teaming up with a dedicated contact center for industry events, you’ll be able to track your response rates with ease. Staying on top of your response and reservation rates will allow you to adjust your game plan to match that data. Pivoting with data can mean anything from tweaking your marketing campaign for the event to sending out additional invitations to a different set of leads.
- Be Ready to Answer Any Questions
Some attendees might want to answer a few questions before committing to your event, especially if tickets cost money! If that’s the case, ensure that your communication is flawless. Rely on TeleDirect to support you. Live agents covering inbound calls will be available 24/7 to take questions and provide the most up-to-date information possible on the upcoming event. Our agents work hard to learn every detail about your event in order to provide accurate information. In addition, by developing custom scripts tailored to your event, we ensure our agents can speak in the voice you want to represent your brand best.
