9 Tips to Create the ultimate hybrid Event
As our society begins to reopen, we anticipate what was a virtual world in 2020 will begin to transition. We’ve been a part of some innovative and creative discoveries that have come about in 2020. While we move forward, we’re conscious to retain the best elements of virtual streaming while transitioning to live gatherings again.
1. Driving ROI
By separating your virtual and in-person program, you’re allowing more opportunities to highlight and showcase sponsors. Sponsors are provided multiple options. To be shown during the pre and post-show during your virtual event, on screens for in-person attendees and on signage around your venue. Our team will walk you through the endless options to showcase your sponsors during your event!
2. Timing is Everything!
3. Emotion & Impact over Length
4. Fundraising Experts
5. Evolving with Technology
6. Less is More
The key is finding a balance of live and pre-recording programming. Examples of videos that we’ve received positive feedback from include:
Intro video – from your recipients!
Donor video – encourage and inspire current and prospective donors as to WHY they (should) give generously.
Fund a Need/Appeal Video – These videos help tell your story – how your recipients benefit from your mission, where donations are allocated, and connect donors and recipients to an emotional appeal and inspirational moments you create with funding.
Thank you video – allow your recipients to thank your donors, sponsors and attendees for their support!
7. Communication is Critical
Allow guests to choose between attending in person or at home for a different price point. By limiting the number of in-person guests, you are creating an exclusivity to the event. Guests watching at home can participate in watch parties and a 60- minute portion of your live event.
Ask your donors, “What is your preferred method of communication?”
Group your donors into categories based on communication methods and ensure you’re mindfully reaching out based on preference
8. Parallel Plans
9. Partnership and Trust
