‘Wow’ Your Supporters with an Attractive Event Invitation (Don’t be basic!)

Fundraiser Event Invitation

Nobody likes a basic event invitation, so here’s how to ‘wow’ your supporters!

Event invitations and reminders for your fundraisers can be one of the most effective first steps to secure attendance…if done correctly. We recommend an effective and simple cocktail for your emailed event invitations:

An attention-grabbing design
+ Simple, yet punchy messaging
+ A pinch of urgency

Let’s recap

Here are the 5 biggest takeaways to create an effective event invitation:

  1. Big text with clear headers to skim through easily and quickly
  2. Attention-grabbing designs with high contrasting colors
  3. A big, contrasting call to action button – The use of the large, contrasting call to action button at the bottom of the email is great, and makes it clear to readers exactly what the next step is.
  4. A clear RSVP flow – the CTA button and images link through to a simple RSVP form, making it easy for people to RSVP to the event.
  5. A slight sense of urgency and/or exclusivity
