Complete Event Management for Act!!
Image

Maximize your turnout while minimizing your cost & effort

Online events such as webinars, training sessions, or networking meetings can boost your business, but they can also be challenging to organize and host. You need to attract attendees, manage the RSVP’s, share the event details discreetly, send reminders, and follow up with the participants. This can be overwhelming, especially if you have to use multiple 3rd party applications that create extra work for you. If you are a small business owner, you probably have your events and invitees in your Act! database. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a single online service that let you handle your events more easily and efficiently from within Act!, without any redundant work, and with higher attendance rates? Well, now there is, and it’s called Link2events.

Link2events Saves You Money
Many online hosting services have two types of plans – meeting and webinar plans, with the latter being much more expensive than the former. Link2events helps you save money by adding the webinar features to the meeting plan at a fraction of the normal cost difference, with the added of bonus of integrating with Act! - something neither of them can do on their own.
