Did You Know: Access Codes for Virtual Events

  • By Lindsay Biondy | Wednesday, August 19th, 2020

Did you know you can control who attends your online experiences by providing each attendee with a unique access code?

One of the most important things to consider when creating your virtual event is how to ensure that your online experiences are accessible only to your registered ticket buyers. While many solutions offer the ability to set a password or send a link to enter your event, what’s stopping people from sharing that link around? Unauthorized access can lead to spammy chat comments, disruptive behavior, and can affect your ability to monetize your virtual experiences. With our unique access codes, you’re able to control who attends your online experience and secure your content by assigning a unique code for each customer to use for entry into your virtual event.

After customers purchase their tickets, their personal access code is automatically delivered via the confirmation page and email. When event day comes, they simply enter your event with their assigned code, and they’re in! Not only will this level of access control enable you to make money from your live streams and virtual events, you can also use the data collected with every access code to easily see who attends your event, which aspects of your virtual experience they’re most engaged with, and when. That information will then help you create targeted remarketing campaigns and tailor future virtual events and live streams to your audience’s interests!
