Date

August 10, 2015 by Brian Ghidinelli

Flexibility is what MotorsportReg is all about. You build your tribe with a particular experience that is everything from where you promote your events to how you greet people at the event to how you treat folks who run afoul of your rules. You can customize large parts of the data you gather with MotorsportReg including the person and attendee profiles using our custom question functionality but one category has remained static: vehicles.

MotorsportReg Updates- May 2015

Date

August 10, 2015 by Brian Ghidinelli

A personal goal this year is to improve my communication with what's changed in MotorsportReg. As you may have seen on the blog and on the site, we've added a couple of people to our team which means things will begin changing at a faster (and better) rate. That means I need to tell you more frequently about the changes both obvious and not-so-obvious. Let's catch up with a series of blog posts starting today.

How to remove the member # box from your registration form

Date

May 6, 2015 by Jennifer Ghidinelli

If you run events and either don't have members or don't care to collect member numbers, you've probably complained to us how much you hate the member # box at the beginning of your registration form. It looks something like this:

member_app_WH

Now, as the instructions below the box say, your attendee can just leave the box blank and move on to your registration form. But we all know that attendees don't read! So we've given you the option to remove this box from your registration form. Here's what this page looks like if you choose to remove the box:

Driver Assigner Tool - A Breath of Fresh Air for the Time Pressed Organizer

Date

January 14, 2015 by Katie Moosman

Paperwork stress
Before we get started, let me introduce myself. I’m Katie and I’ve been working for MotorsportReg for the past 8 months. Before that, for 6 years I used MSR on a daily basis as an organizer.

Just like many of you - I’ve spent countless hours scrambling before an event assigning my run groups, pairing instructors and gathering paperwork. Anything that could save me precious time before an event was better than gold!

Check out our check-in stats

Date

November 12, 2014 by Jennifer Ghidinelli

Last month we spent a week at the SCCA National Runoffs and of course dropped in on our friends in Registration. Two of our favorite Registrars, Ceci Smith from Cal Club and Terry Roberts from NEDiv, mentioned how much they loooooove the revamped onsite check in tool. That's music to our ears!  

After their praise we decided to take a little peek at how much usage the check-in tool is actually getting. Turns out A LOT! And since Brian likes graphs and I like images for my blogs, he put a few together for me based on the last 50,000 check-ins.

Not too surprising that the highest check-in days are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, but I would have thought Saturday would be the highest.  And it looks like a lot of you are skipping out on work on Fridays...

On to the next graph!

Now Even MORE People Are Seeing Your Events

Date

August 26, 2014 by Jennifer Ghidinelli

You probably already know (because we love talking about it!) that last year over 900,000 people looked at events on our calendar.  This is one of the many benefits of being a MotorsportReg customer.   We are THE marketplace for people looking for motorsport events and just having your event listed with us helps increase your registrations.  On a regular basis our organizers tell us they got a brand new participant because they saw it on motorsportreg.com.

SyndicationOver the last several months we've been working on a little project to get even more eyeballs looking at your events (and hopefully registering).  We have teamed up with a few key syndication partners to help spread the word about your events including regional newspapers, major search engine sites and major (non-motorsport) event sites.

MotorsportReg Feature Updates- May/June

Date

November 12, 2014 by Brian Ghidinelli

Many people don't realize but we make changes to MSR all the time - as frequent as multiple times per day.  Each update adds or improves the service and fixes bugs.  Many of these changes are small in nature so when Jennifer asks me, "What did you do recently?", it can feel like there's nothing newsworthy to pass along.  Thankfully I have a number of significant changes which makes writing this update a lot easier!

Date

June 5, 2014 by Jennifer Ghidinelli

I_Love_Online_RegBelieve it or not, there are still some organizations out there that don't offer online registration for their events.  As a participant, we can't tell you how annoying this is.  It's a considerable barrier-to-entry for a lot of people.  And rule number one in increasing attendance at your events is to make it as easy as possible for people to get registered.

So for the non-believers out there still using paper forms, we've put together a list of the top 8 reasons why participants love online registration.
