Introducing Text Message Blaster

Date

February 12, 2019 by Chris Redrich

textmessages-v1.0

We've all been there – walking around the paddock and you hear the faint sound of a voice reverberating over the PA system. Just as you hear the first few words, someone fires up an engine erasing any chance you had at hearing that important announcement. 

Or even worse, as an event organizer, you are trying to inform people about a schedule change or invite people to stay for the evening social and nobody can hear you.

Today we're announcing one of our most requested features – the ability to send text messages directly to your attendees mobile phones.

If you need a fast, reliable way to reach your participants, SMS is it. Dynmark reports that 90% of text messages are read within 3 minutes of receipt. You'll be surprised how easy it is to send a message to some or all of your attendees. Simply select the people you want to reach and select "Send text message."

You can also send messages just like you do today with Email Blaster.

tmb-from-event

Sending text messages to your attendees is not limited to event-day messages. You can also use text messages to send out important details before or after an event like a special discount offer to drive more registrations, last-minute schedule changes, or when registration opens for your next event.

Availability

This feature will roll out in the coming weeks. Our team is wrapping up the development and testing.

Date

December 27, 2018 by Chris Redrich

To all the organizations who trust MotorsportReg, you just hit a major milestone years in the making: we processed your 2 millionth event registration! This milestone is no small feat. Two million participants have lived out their passion for motorsport through an event that you've organized. We congratulate you on your contribution to the sport and for creating a place for all of us to get our adrenaline fix and create lifelong friendships.

What's next? Together we’re partnering on a mission to accelerate the growth of the motorsport events community. Leveraging our tools, you've registered record numbers of people for motorsport events this year. Six highlights worth sharing:

  1. Your events reached more than 1,000,000 web visitors on the MotorsportReg calendar and 1,300,000 inboxes via our monthly "Upcoming Events" emails.
  2. You brought back 10% more people to your registration form using our abandoned registration emails that detect when someone leaves the registration form.
  3. You filled over $100,000 of unsold seats using our Last Minute Track Junkies list, growing your contact list and keeping your events financially in the black.
  4. You added 115,000 new names when people opt-in to your contact database before they view your registration forms.
  5. You sent your members and customers 5,000,000 emails keeping them up to date and encouraging them to register for your events. Five million touch points!
  6. All combined, our tools with your passion have increased average participation! The number of events attended per person per year has grown annually by 2.6%. Each of your average participants are attending 13% more of your events today than 5 years ago.

These are just a few of the ways that we support you in your mission to grow the motorsport events community. Our team is constantly finding new ways to automate tasks, reduce errors, and increase participation in your events. These tenets are at the core of every new feature we deliver and we're excited to see what you accomplish next!

Video: 10 of the Fastest Nurburgring Laps

10 Nurburgring Videos Worth Watching

Around headquarters at MotorsportReg, we talk a lot about the Nurburgring. A lot. (We even wrote a book on how to visit, spectate, drive and race the Ring, if you're curious) Whenever a new hot lap is laid down, we immediately share it on Slack and sit tensely on the edge of our chairs watching supercars race flat out in 6th and 7th gears.

We're sharing our favorites: a curated list of the fastest laps on the Nurburgring Nordschleife. If you can only watch three, I would recommend the #2 NIO EP9 (electric car!), #1 Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo (epic!) and the extra BONUS clip we included at the bottom (oversteer!).

Feature Updates Recap

Date

March 13, 2018 by Brian Ghidinelli

Last year we switched to posting in-app release notes much more frequently in our "What's New" widget. Many of you wanted more detail on changes but we let the pendulum swing too far on posting fewer summarized updates. As a result, you might have missed out on additional value while you were heads-down running great events.

Let's fix that with periodic summaries of our most important releases starting with a recap of the last 11 significant updates...
