In-app profile editing a win-win for conference attendees
We know customization and engagement rank high on your list of features for a mobile event app, but they also matter to your attendees. The more we allow for personalization, the more engaging and interesting your app will be for all users. In-app editing puts your sponsors, speakers and attendees in control of their profiles.
In today’s world where social media is integrated into our daily lives, having an image that represents your current mood is not only fun and exciting, but is what our users expect. Some folks will always default to their professional mug shot – and that is a safe bet. However, after that first day of fun and watching the sunset over the Pacific, many will feel inclined to match the mood of the event by switching up their picture to include palm trees or crashing waves.
Social media inclusion in a profile is a great way to connect with your fellow conference attendees. LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook profiles can be linked inside the app to allow for instant connection between users. Whether it’s a prospect, a motivational speaker, or a company you are interested in researching, the social media plug in allows for easy access.
Professional bios are important in representing the most current and relevant information and accomplishments of an attendee – whether it is a speaker or an organization. A mobile event app profile allows other users to get to know you and see if there is a connection or a fit. A fun and engaging use of a profile is to update it daily with a quote or goal for the day and include an email address to connect.
In-app edits lighten the work load for event planners because they put the users in control of their own information. It truly is a win – win for the host organization and users of the mobile event app.
