MotorsportReg features you should be using

Date

February 3, 2016 by Jennifer Ghidinelli

As I was prepping our 6 tips to kickstart your season blog a few weeks back I asked our customer success heroes Ann and Katie for a list of the best new (or old) MotorsportReg features that organizers weren't using but should. Since they see tons of events from tons of different kinds of organizations, it didn't take long to come up with the list. So here it is- the features you should be using to take your event registration form to the next level.

Best time to post on social media

Date

January 20, 2016 by Jennifer Ghidinelli

In our last blog we gave you 6 tips to kick start your season and one of them was to plan out your event promotion ahead of time (our free promotion calendar makes this super easy). Last week I took my own advice and scheduled our weekly Facebook posts for the next 4 months.

We're not hugely active on Facebook (we've found it's not the best channel for us, read about changes to their algorithms here) but at a minimum we post a race quote each week and I was wondering if there was any new research out there on the best time to post on social media. So I did a little googling and low and behold came across a very recent infographic on the Ultimate Best Times to Post on Social Media. I changed my posting times based on this info and found an immediate increase in the number of views we were getting. And the first thing I thought was "we've gotta share this with our organizers!"

Pole Position- SpeedSF's Patrick Chio

Date

December 17, 2015 by Jennifer Ghidinelli

Patrick_Chio.jpgThe San Francisco Bay Area is chock full of motorsport enthusiasts which makes for a large, but competitive market for event organizers. You'll find all of the marque car clubs, the major club racing organizations and quite a few do-it-yourselfers. But Patrick Chio and his team at SpeedSF somehow manage to cut through the noise and run very successful HPDE and Time Trial programs.

Patrick first grabbed our attention with his awesome promotional emails. Great images, a clear, concise message, and simple design really made them stand out. And they're effective- a lot of the run groups sell out and SpeedSF has gone from hosting 4 events when they first started with MotorsportReg in 2013 to hosting 22 events in 2015! I asked Patrick to share the secrets to his success in this uber competitive market.

Let's give a hats off to these wonderful folks and start making their lives (and yours) a little easier with online registration.
