We hope you all enjoyed a very merry Christmas! And now, the long awaited part 3, the final blog post in our MyGala v0.3 walk-through to close out the year. This blog post is a full tour of our new event landing pages that can help your organization better promote its fundraising auction event to make more money for your school or non-profit!
In part 2 of the MyGala walkthrough, we talked about packaging items into sellable packages, sponsor management, event management, email templates, and the volunteer area.
The Event Landing Page
New Look and Easy Interface
The new event landing page is customizable to suit your non-profit or event’s branding. With full-screen image backgrounds, you can display your event in the best possible way. We’ve included pre-set templates that let you post ticket sales, collect auction donations, and highlight your sponsors with minimal effort. Your landing page can include as many sections as you’d like and include all the important information your guests will need.
We’ve also streamlined the auction preview area to display your auction items in a beautiful collage.
The editing panel lets you preview the landing page as you change background colors or images, text, and template style. You can also change the location of the text box within each section to best fit your background image, as well as the text alignment within the text box itself.
Built-in Ticket Sales
The built-in ticket sales module lets you sell tickets to your event with no added fees*. Payments are processed using your organization’s PayPal account so you can trust where your proceeds are going and that your donor information is secure. You can sell as many different ticket types as you’d like, including early-bird pricing specials, multi-ticket discounts, sponsored tables, or tickets to different portions of the evening. MyGala’s in-app ticket sales let you collect guest information and preferences quickly and easily. You’ll have access to buyer information to make follow-ups easier, and there will be no need to sync your guest list with an external ticket provider.
*We don’t charge any additional fees, but PayPal is still subject to payment processing fees. Please visit their website for more information.
If you’re tired of entering items manually, our new auction donations module lets you collect donor and item information online, while syncing with MyGala. Donors can submit item details and pictures of the donated items. Once you’ve approved the donation, you can quickly combine donations as sellable packages.
With the new sponsor spotlight section, you can recognize your event sponsors with a logo or text label. This section can be used as an added sponsor perk to promote their philanthropy, helping you increase event sponsorships.
Check out our new event landing page for yourself! We’ve created a demo event landing page that lets you see what our different modules look like and how your customized pages could look like.
