This is our story
Our flow has always been very simple: on the one hand you have an event, on the other there's a person that can either "register to attend" or "buy one (or more) tickets" for that event. We already had the possibility to upload a guest list, but it was all very limited. Until now, because now there is a new feature called "Pierrot Invites".
Connecting Pierrot with Mailchimp
Mailchimp is one of the most popular email marketing services around. Pierrot has a built-in option to connect with your Mailchimp account and sync your event data. In this blogpost we'll learn how to make Pierrot talk to Mailchimp and explain 2 use cases: event based subscription & adding a newsletter opt-in checkbox.
How to set up ticketing for an event?
In this blog post we'll guide you through some of the basics in setting up an event. In this case a two day B2B event with 2 day tickets, a combi ticket and a custom field.
Messages: a fresh and simple email tool
We were asked by one of our clients if it was possible to automatically send an email the day before and after a visit to their exhibition. We hate to say 'no', so we said: sure, we'll build that. The result is a new feature called "messages".
The chameleon form
Each event is unique so you might need something different every time. How can you force Pierrot's form to your will?
Activities is a somewhat "hidden" Pierrot feature that can be very powerful and makes a big difference in many cases. But what are these hidden gems?
Contacts vs Attendees
Something that might be a bit confusing for some Pierrot users is the difference between “Attendees” and “Contacts”. We’ll try to explain it here.
Pierrot's form builder
Yesterday we came across a nice article from Blendle chief Alexander Klöpping where he summarises his recent learnings. One of his lessons resonated a lot with us: "We do this badly at Blendle: we spend an awful lot of time on new features, and then forget to tell users that those features exist."
