“Allows me to collect valuable information from the user during the registration process”
Event Espresso rocks! I use it for my dance class registrations. Unlike most dance studios where people have to call or send an email in advance, Event Espresso puts a registration form right there in front of the user and allows me to collect valuable information from the user during the registration process with custom questions such as “Do you have previous dance experience?” or “How did you hear about us?”. It also gives my site a professional look and feel. And Seth is awesome with support! He makes you feel like a valued customer, which is great! Thanks Seth for all your hard work, your dedication, and all of the time you sacrifice to this plugin! It is very helpful! –Ral
