  • Facebook Fundraising - If you are a nonprofit who is fundraising, this one is a no-brainer. We are seeing a number of no fee or low fee virtual events where the participant agrees to fundraise for the nonprofit. Facebook Fundraising allows fundraisers to easily share and raise money directly on Facebook at no cost to your nonprofit

  • Referral Refunds and Rewards - One of our most powerful tools is Referral Rewards. It allows you to incentivize participants to get their friends to sign up.  In 2020, 17% of participants came from referrals, with incredible ROI’s of 1,000%+.  Learn how to setup referral rewards here.

  • Multi-Race Bundles - Get creative with your packaging and pricing. Using our Multi-Race registration capability, offer 5 races for the price of 3. Or bundle a package of a virtual race with next year’s race. There are tons of creative ideas on how to generate revenue today – and your participants want to find ways to support you and find hope of future fun. This will make their long solo walks and runs more meaningful right now. Learn more about multi-race bundles here. Learn more about bundles here.

  • Source Code Tracking: ROI Analysis on Advertising - A number of races are using Facebook and Google advertising, especially for their virtual events. You can optimize this with the use of custom tracking tokens in RaceInsights to measure which campaigns are paying off and which ones are wasting money. It's easier than it sounds!

  • Free Photos Platform - Virtual racers often share photos on Facebook and Instagram, but the free Photo Platform allows for unlimited participant uploads, custom albums, and auto-tagging by bib number. It's perfect for hybrid races with both in-person and virtual events - bring all your participants together with a single hub for images. Learn more about Photos 2.0.

  • Free Sponsor Management Platform - yes, virtual races have sponsors, too! You can use our sponsor management platform to highlight your sponsors before and after registration, including automated sponsor offer emails to give virtual registrants a virtual goodie bag. We have some ideas for engaging sponsors with virtual races, too.
