I need an online-invitation/RSVP-management solution for a small non-profit. Something between evite and cvent?
I'm at a small non-profit that's hosting an event. The event is free, but RSVP-only. So like a wedding. However, it's for an organization, so evite is out (also because evite is disgusting) and so are the newer, cutesier, fresher versions of evite (Mypunchbowl
) because we need to be able to make it professional-looking with our logo instead of theirs.
We can pay to get rid of ads etc, but not the hundreds of dollars that the huge sites like cvent
want, especially since we don't need "marketing" and "ROI improvement." Sendomatic
looks pretty good, but it seems like they charge a lot for very little (per event fees, monthy licensing fees, additional annual fees to customize the invite e-mail and the thank-you page, etc.).
would be perfect except that I spoke to them on the phone and there's no way to remove the "ticket sales" language from the invitation. The person has to click to "buy" a free "ticket" and has to go through a free shopping cart and pay $0.00.
We have our own website
, and so I was looking at FormLogix
, and just publishing some kind of form on the website, but it seems a little crude, especially for e-mailing out invitations.
Our last option is CorpNote
, but it seems a little Windows98 to me, and it's really not that customizable.
Basically we want e-mail invitations, RSVP/attendee management (no complex reports or anything), and as much transparency as possible (the invitee doesn't feel so much like they're going through some other site). Are there any other companies I've missed, or is there a somewhat simple way to do this on our website with forms or something? We don't have a designated tech person but we do have volunteers who are tech-capable.
