We hear it over and over again. It's the number one myth about online registration systems that keeps many meeting planners from making their lives easier and their events more successful.
The #1 Myth: I know my current system isnít perfect, but Iím comfortable with it. Plus, it would take too much time, money and headaches to switch to something better. I wouldnít even know where to start.Why is this myth completely false?
Because thousands of meeting planners said the same thing before they discovered that a high-quality automated system:
Is easy to implement without any technical knowledge
Only takes a matter of hours to set up - and in some cases, less than an hour
More than pays for itself Ė and is affordable to even the smallest meetings
How is this possible?
A few years ago, these systems were made available through your web browser. No software to buy, install, or maintain. You donít have to figure out how to connect to your website. This entirely new type of service exists on the web, instead of on your office computers, allowing for anywhere, anytime, real-time access to your events and corresponding data.
The benefits of a Web-based Service:
You donít need a technology department to use it
You can turn it on immediately
You control everything without having to wait Ė form changes, reports, accounting
You can give immediate access to your colleagues anywhere in the world, anytime
The security of your data will be many times greater
You get to use a multi-million dollar online registration system for just a few dollars per registration.
I sincerely hope this article makes your conference and event registration even more successful!
