#GivingTuesday: Sponsoring the Outspoken Women Mission

As I was preparing our social media campaign for #GivingTuesday, I stumbled upon an Outspoken Women post on social media. So, I decided to check out the website and see what it was all about.

Outspoken Women - Support Women Speakers in Tech

I found that Outspoken Women is a resource for women and non-binary individuals in the open source technology industry. As I was looking around on their website, I noticed many of their members are people I recognize from the various WordCamps I’ve attended over the years and the WordPress community. Additionally, I noticed that some Outspoken Women members are customers of Event Espresso, so I thought to myself, “What a great organization to sponsor for GivingTuesday.”, then I made it happen and sponsored.

Call for Sponsors: EE4 Promotional Codes & Discounts

donationsEE4 Promotional Codes & Discounts Possible Features

Incentives are important to selling-out an event within a certain timeline, or helping encourage people to attend that are more price-sensitive. You can leverage promotion and discount codes add-on to incentivize people to register now or make your events more affordable for others.

Help us fund our next major feature! Please head over to our Indiegogo campaign page and make a donation.

For now we are starting with “Phase I” features and will move on to “Phase II” ideas/features once we release the first phase of the add-on.

Phase I Features

These controls are managed on an event-by-event basis via Promotions Overview, and Promotions Details pages.

  1. Discount text (code)
  2. Discount name
  3. Discount amount
  4. Discount is percentage (if not then dollar amount)
  5. Discount scope:Ā event
  6. Discount description

  3. Global codes (meaning that a discount code will apply to all events by default without having to select it in the event editor for each event)
  4. Apply before/after discount/surcharge calculation based on price hierarchy

How can you help?

Well, the time has come to start bringing in some heavy hitting features like Promotional Codes & Discounts, Multiple Event Registration, and WordPress User Integration…And now we want to see if our community will embrace an opportunity to contribute to powerful event registration and ticketing features.

Quite a few of you have mentioned that you would consider donating to the development of certain EE4 features.Ā We are experimenting with crowd sourcing as a way for ALL of you to participate in sponsored development.

This is where you come. We want to test the waters of “crowdbuilding” or “crowdfunding” a few add-ons and features in EE4. We want to hear from you, and create the tools you need for your businesses. Your donations will help us and other users to create the features theĀ Event Espresso community needs.

We are only asking for $10,000 to fund this development, so please head over to our Indiegogo campaign page and make a donation.

How does this help with prioritization of features?

Here’s the deal. Our development team has been hard at work for over a year making sure EE4 core is stable and as bug free as possible. Now, two of them have already started planning and building some aspects of the Promotional Codes & Discounts add-on, however, we have many more hours of rigorous development and testing left to do. Our current process for development of features relies on picking and choosing the most requested features. By crowdfunding Event Espresso features, we are letting YOU decide what we work on next.

Sponsors help us (EE) prioritize development that may not otherwise be accomplished within the same time frame. For example, new payment gateway sponsorships are moved to the front of the development queue, while other features are set on the back burner until we have more time and/or dedicated sponsors. This experiment will help us understand if users want to help prioritize the development of features they want by sponsoring via crowdfunding. We are actively looking for ways that benefit our users most, while still allowing us to sustain the business and growth of Event Espresso.

Why sponsor the Promotional Codes & Discounts add-on for Event Espresso 4?

The idea behind this to try helping each other, and everyone else in theĀ Event Espresso community by keeping the prices low for this and future add-ons. In addition to keeping an add-ons prices lower, sponsors help us (EE) prioritize development that may not otherwise be accomplished within the same time frame. For example, new payment gateway sponsorships are moved to the front of the development queue, while major feature get pushed back until we have to work on them.

Please consider sponsoring the EE4 Promotional Codes and Discounts add-on. If you would like to know more, or requests other features, please fill out theĀ Sponsor a Feature form and check out our Crowd Funding Development page.
