Guest lists: can’t live with them, can’t live without them…or can you? We know that one of the most stressful parts of planning an event is creating the guest list, so we made it a little easier for hosts! Obviously if you’re planning an intimate gathering or a wedding you’ll compose and perfect the guest list, but what if all you’re planning a casual pub crawl on St. Paddy’s Day where the entire city is invited? If only you could create an invite and have a guest list magically create itself…You can! Shareable invitations on Paperless Post allow you to do just this.
By using our share tools to further distribute your invitation, you can invite guests via social networks — a much easier, more casual way to invite friends to an event. On top of that, others can share your invitation further! Start out by sending personalized invitations to your friends whose email addresses you know and the rest of the guest list can fill itself through sharing.
Gone are the days of asking your roommate to tell her brother to let his friends know about the pub crawl or charity event you’re chairing. Just let the invitation spread the word and do the work through Twitter, Facebook, instant message conversations, email threads, list-servs and so on. Everyone and anyone can view your invitation and RSVP or register to attend! You can even set a cap on the maximum number of attendees so you can still manage and control your attending count. We think this feature is great both for casual events like a backyard barbecue and for larger events like launch parties, trunk shows, and even ticketed or donation-based events, like fundraisers. Don’t have an event? No worries – you can share any of your cards to spread a good word or a design you particularly love.
The shareable tools can be found on the Delivery page of your card. Just open up the share tools and click, “Activate.” Activating means anyone can view, RSVP and further share your invitation. Share the link and watch your guest list populate itself! With the guest list taken care of, now you can focus on the fun stuff, like which card design to choose – just make sure it’s a good one, as people will be sharing it!
