Step One: Plan Your Program
Use our Real-Time Broadcast feature to create a watch party, where your attendees can engage in a live chat during a pre-recorded show (film, concert, dance piece, cirque, you name it!).
Or you can livestream! Whether you livestream artistic performances or panel conversations with leaders, major donors, or special guests, your audience can participate by sending questions and comments through the chat! Want to livestream an auction? Send people directly to your online shop or donation page to pay for the items they bid on.
You can also build a festival of VOD content for your members and donors to explore at their own pace -- a great way to remind them of all the great work you do all year round!
Or host a combination of these event types using our VOD + Live option. Learn more about creating virtual events here or check out our Public Directory for inspiration from other organizations on the platform!
Step Two: Highlight Event Sponsors
There is plenty of real estate on our virtual screening pages for you to thank your sponsors. You can create tiers of sponsorship that correspond with different levels of exposure on the page, play a sponsor trailer in the event pre-roll, or even name events after your biggest donors.

Step Three: Sell Tickets
You can make your event free and collect donations at checkout, encourage people to give a bit more with “Pay What You Can,” or sell different ticket levels that grant special access to additional content or events.
Step Four: Collect Donations
Allow your audience to add donations to their ticket or pass purchase at checkout, send people to your custom donation page on Eventive, or even hyperlink a display ad directly to your organization’s main webpage if you want to collect donations there.
Step Five: Have an awesome time!
We trust you know how to do this best, but feel free to ping us if you have any questions about making the most of Eventive :-)
Step Six: Leverage Your Data
Our robust analytics allow you to see who watched what for how long, giving you insight into your most devoted attendees. You’ll be able to export reports with your attendees’ names and email addresses for future mailings, or contact your viewers directly through our mailings hub or our automated MailChimp integration, with total control of segmentation and tagging.
