You'll use Event invites to send emails to people that haven't registered for your event yet, you'll do this using Contact Lists. If you need a refresher on creating a contact list check out How to Import a Contact List

To create an event invite: 

1) Click Send Email in the Side Navigation.

2) Click the Add Event Invite button.

On this page, you’ll create an email to be sent to potential registrants at a scheduled time. Remember, Email Invites are sent to Contact Lists that you or your team members have added to the system.

3) The first three fields in the Event Details section will be auto-completed, but you can edit this information if you'd like. 

Enter your Event Invite's body text in the Message section. Use the text format options above the input box to bold, italicize, underline, link or create a numbered/bullet list. 

Checking the Show Registration Call to Action Button on Email box will display the button that directs the email recipient to your registration page. Make sure registration is active before sending the invitation!

Note: While planning your event it's best to set a far off date, so you have time to test your email. 

6) In the Send To section, choose the Contact List you want to send the invite to.

Note: You can resend an Event Invite to the same contact list, don't worry people that already registered won't receive an email. 

7) Click Save.
