Gearing Up For Summer Tourism with a Scavenger Hunt App

Summer is right around the corner! For many places, this can mean it’s time to get ready for an influx of tourists who are ready to start exploring again after a long winter.

If you’re looking for a way to get these folks engaged on the next level, look no further than hosting an event through the Eventzee scavenger hunt app. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Season-long Activities

Towns with an active tourist population benefit from having a tool that allows for engagement on another level. For many towns, this is often a passport-style scavenger hunt that guides people through the town’s hottest locations, including historical landmarks, small businesses, restaurants, and more.

Unlike holiday or festival events, season-long scavenger hunts can take the pressure off of the winning aspect of a game and allow people to really dig into all that the town has to offer. A lot of Eventzee clients enjoy offering a prize to all participants who finish the event in a given time period, such as a small gift card that benefits the downtown shops and restaurants.

Festivals or Fairs

Festivals and fairs of all kinds can benefit from a tool like a scavenger hunt app, like Eventzee. Guests may be overwhelmed with all that’s offered within a certain time period. With Eventzee’s scavenger hunt app, you can highlight local vendors and their offerings, get rid of any printed materials, and include a map.

In addition to being a great resource for attendees, you can allow specific vendors to purchase advertising space within in app, leaderboard style, to generate additional revenue for the event.

Small Business Saturdays

Small Business Saturday doesn’t just have to be confined to one day in November. Small business owners work hard every day of the year, and they should be appreciated for that!

Using Eventzee’s scavenger hunt app and the QR code feature, visitors can be encouraged to engage with small business shops and restaurants throughout a whole downtown area. This past year, Downtown Center Business Improvement District of LA hosted an event over multiple days to encourage visitors to visit specific parts of the city. The free event was created to encourage people to engage with local businesses, and participants were entered to win a nice prize at the end of the event!

Historical Sites

Historical sites benefit from utilizing a scavenger hunt app like Eventzee because it makes it easy for people to learn and explore without needing the assistance of a tour guide. Especially with Covid restrictions, access to a pre-built educational event right from your smartphone can be key to making sure visitors have the best experience.

A Guide to Peer-to-Peer Fundraising: Scavenger Hunt Edition

Photo by Noelle Otto: https://www.pexels.com/photo/close-up-photography-of-magnifying-glass-906055/

Need new ways to keep your donors engaged? Running out of fresh, creative ideas for your next event? Get your supporters on their feet and out exploring with a peer-to-peer scavenger hunt fundraiser!

What is peer-to-peer fundraising?

Peer-to-peer fundraisers are a great, flexible fundraising option that gets your donors involved with your organization’s mission and helps your organization expand its reach. With a peer-to-peer fundraiser, rather than putting the responsibility of fundraising completely on your organization’s staff and volunteers, your supporters will help you spread the word and raise money on your behalf. 

While this might sound similar to crowdfunding, there are several key differences that set peer-to-peer fundraising apart. With crowdfunding, you’ll only need one webpage to direct people to for donations. The key to a successful crowdfunding campaign is promotion, so you’ll need to spend lots of time helping your crowdfunding page gain visibility through online sharing. 

Peer-to-peer fundraisers are a little more complicated in that multiple participants will have their own fundraising pages so they can raise money for you. Fundraisers will reach out to their networks and actively pursue donations for your organization with their own fundraising pages. Deciding which format works best for you will depend on how many resources you have and what your goals are.

How does peer-to-peer fundraising work?

When you plan a peer-to-peer fundraiser, you need to recruit volunteer fundraisers. In addition to your primary peer-to-peer campaign website, your fundraisers will each make their own webpages where they’ll collect donations from their family and friends. Your fundraisers will make donation asks across social media platforms, through email and text, and any other channel of communication they use. Your organization will support fundraisers throughout the campaign and track progress on individual fundraising pages and the general campaign website.

Planning any peer-to-peer fundraiser is a huge undertaking and relies upon how engaged your fundraisers are. Make your fundraiser more engaging with gamification elements like team competitions and a live fundraising leaderboard.

Plan your peer-to-peer fundraiser

The first step of the planning process for your peer-to-peer campaign should be setting goals for your fundraiser.

  • How much do you want to raise?
  • Is this a rolling or time-based campaign?
  • Who is your audience and what is the best way to reach them?

Try to make sure your goals are SMART goals: specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-based. If you’re having trouble with making your goals, use data from past fundraisers to determine what you can expect for the fundraiser you’re currently planning.

When you’re planning a peer-to-peer scavenger hunt, it’s also important to consider goals specific to your scavenger hunt. Will your scavenger hunt be an educational experience? Do you want to make it location-specific? Are there social aspects to the scavenger hunt, and will participants be in teams? The format of your scavenger hunt can also inform the format of your peer-to-peer campaign, so make sure you plan out the basics of your scavenger hunt before you start fundraising.

If you’re planning on setting up your scavenger hunt in your local community, plan to reach out to local fixtures in your community and businesses to see if they would be okay with being a part of the hunt. Their participation might be as small as hanging a QR code in a storefront window or interacting with your participants in person. Just make sure you have the proper permissions before sending your hunters off to seek out clues.

Find the right software

Planning a peer-to-peer fundraiser is time-consuming, so you’ll need all the help you can get. With the right software, designing a campaign website and helping your fundraisers design their individual fundraising pages doesn’t have to take up a lot of space on your plate. To make sure that you give your supporters the best experience possible, start by picking the right fundraising software for your campaign. Choose a peer-to-peer fundraising software that empowers you and your fundraisers to easily build fundraising websites with drag-and-drop elements and engaging features like a campaign thermometer.

Now that you’ve decided on the right fundraising software, it’s time to find a platform for your actual scavenger hunt event. For a peer-to-peer scavenger hunt, you’ll need event-specific software that makes it easy to build out a scavenger hunt event. Whether you want a pre-built and ready-to-go scavenger hunt or a hunt that you can customize, your software should be flexible and include features that keep your participants connected.

Qgiv partner, Eventzee, provides a custom mobile scavenger hunt platform, which is a great option for all different kinds of fundraisers. Whether it’s for 200 people or 2,000, Eventzee’s feature-filled and user-friendly smartphone app will get your fundraiser going in no time.

The Eventzee app is easily accessible via smartphone, and the Eventzee administrative tools make running a scavenger hunt easier than ever. Create challenges for your scavenger hunt, message players, approve submissions, and more, all from your computer or mobile device.

Market your scavenger hunt fundraiser

The success of any fundraiser is highly dependent on how well you market it, and for peer-to-peer fundraisers, this could not be truer. With multi-channel marketing, you can reach a wide audience to drive sign-ups for your fundraiser. Use email, social media, direct mail, and more to recruit fundraisers and raise awareness of your peer-to-peer campaign.

Your peer-to-peer fundraising website will also be a helpful marketing tool for your peer-to-peer fundraiser, so make sure it’s informative and includes pictures and impact statements to encourage registrations and donations. This will be the main resource for your fundraisers and donors, so it’s important to design it to be easily navigated and as useful as possible.

Provide fundraising guidance

Your supporters probably aren’t seasoned fundraisers, so they’ll need a little support to meet their fundraising goals. Create and compile a treasure trove of resources for your volunteer fundraisers so they don’t have to stress about how to solicit donations from their networks. Email and social media templates, a comprehensive collection of fundraising tips, and social sharing buttons will help fundraisers old and new meet their individual goals.

Stay in touch

Keep your supporters motivated and engaged by providing them with updates throughout your campaign. Send out emails to mark major fundraising milestones and let your fundraisers know how much money they’ve raised. When you have hesitant fundraisers, send them words of encouragement and let them know what their support means to your organization. Motivate them with impact statements, and make sure they have all the resources they need to be successful fundraisers.

Collect data

To improve your fundraising strategy and increase your impact, collect data throughout your peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. Keep your CRM database updated with your donors’ giving histories and how they’ve engaged with your organization. 

Manually updating your database throughout your campaign can take time and effort. Instead, try to find peer-to-peer software that can integrate with your CRM software. That way, whenever someone interacts with your organization by making a donation or filling out a volunteer form, you can collect that information and keep your database automatically up-to-date with donations, email addresses, phone numbers, and more.

Thank your donors

Each time you receive a donation, make sure you show your gratitude to your donors. Send out thank-you emails and add personalization tokens to make your emails more personal to your donors. Make sure you add impact statements to let your donors know how their gift will be used and help your mission. 

For an added bonus, give your fundraisers thank-you email templates so they can also send out their own messages of gratitude to their generous supporters. Sending out thank-you emails will leave your donors with a good impression of your organization. It’s one of the first steps to increasing your retention rates and building your donor base.

Final thoughts

With a peer-to-peer scavenger hunt fundraiser, you’ll keep your supporters engaged with a unique, one-of-a-kind fundraising event they’re sure to remember. For more resources on creating a successful peer-to-peer fundraiser, check out these links:

Using a Scavenger Hunt App for National Employee Appreciation Day

Here’s a few ideas to get you started:

Boost Overall Engagement

You may appreciate your employees, but this is the perfect holiday to make sure they know that! Often it seems like it may be hard to take a break and leave your desk, but with a scavenger hunt app event, you can get employees up and engaged with their coworkers and executives!

Company Trivia

How well do your employees know your company? Make it fun for them to learn more about different departments by creating dynamic quiz questions. If your team is in the office, use our QR code feature to test them on how well they know the different departments, where certain people have their offices, or communal spaces throughout the building.

Build Camaraderie with our Teams Feature

With Eventzee’s unique team feature, employees can play the scavenger hunt in groups or individually. As an admin, you can choose to assign the groups ahead of time to get employees who don’t usually interact to join together, or you can make the event a competitive race between departments.

Connect with At-Home Employees via a Scavenger Hunt App

Since the work-from-home workforce is larger than ever, it can seem hard to have the “teamwork” morale that used to exist in the office. Eventzee’s scavenger hunt app allows you to let players join from anywhere. Allow employees to share their at-home set ups, or make a competition to see who has the most company SWAG on hand.

Prizes, Prizes, Prizes

If you’re looking to make this a super competitive event, use this opportunity to give out the best prizes you can think of. You can either give out a participation prize to all of those who complete the event in a given time period, or award something extra fun to the person who completes the event with the most points! Eventzee’s scavenger hunt app has a way to calculate points so there is never a tie, which means you can relax and let the app choose the winner!

How to Use a Digital Platform for Youth Events

Throughout the pandemic, our society has shifted to an all-new level of the virtual world. For most, that has meant learning how to work virtually, utilizing video conferencing and digital platforms to keep life on a somewhat normal schedule. Even youth have had to adapt to a hybrid world, with many having the option to attend classes online. 

In a world that’s been packed with digital engagement in the last 2 years, it’s more important than ever for young people to take time to socialize with their peers any way possible. It can seem daunting to plan additional virtual activities that really engage participants on a different level, but here are a few ideas to get you started!

Let them create virtual teams: 

If you’re utilizing a scavenger hunt platform to host an event from home, you can still allow youth to engage with one another recreationally. As an admin, you can either assign the teams or let players choose their own. This is great not just as an ice breaker, but also a way to encourage teamwork through digital means. They can give themselves a team name, photo, and description to kick off the fun!

Let them be the star of the show: 

Youth love to tell stories, which is the perfect use of Eventzee’s video submission challenge feature. Admins can use the scavenger hunt app video challenge in a variety of ways, including read-alouds, skit performances, or even just to explain how they got the answer to a problem. Let them embrace their creativity using technology! 

Use the scavenger hunt app to include learning in a fun way: 

With so much digital presence, it’s really important to be innovative with the way learning takes place. Using Eventzee’s scavenger hunt app allows you to mix things up with 7 different challenge types – including photo, video, quiz, text, and more. Whether you want students to explore creativity with a photo or showcase their comprehension of specific materials with a quiz, Eventzee challenges can be fitted to a number of needs. This allows admins to design an event that works perfectly for their group of participants, no matter what type of event it may be!

Don’t let at-home participation stop the fun: 

Most importantly, as we look to enter the third year of the pandemic, make sure to use a platform like Eventzee’s scavenger hunt app that allows your players to join the event at home or in person. This allows for anyone to participate, no matter what might be happening. Nothing will replace a 100% in-person event, but you can enhance your hybrid events to make the most for all attendees!

4 Reasons to Include a Digital Platform in Your Next Hybrid Event

As we look to plan our 2022 events, there’s no doubt that the structure of events has changed – no matter what industry you’re in. Living in a COVID world has shaped the way we think about the events we host, what kind of activities we include, and how our attendees will be receptive to the event as a whole. Be prepared for any situation by hosting a hybrid event using Eventzee!

We’re always looking for ways to stay ahead of the game when it comes to helping our clients create one-of-a-kind event experiences, no matter the circumstances. Below are some ideas to consider for your next hybrid event!

Give Attendees the Option to Stay Home

Traveling can be difficult during the pandemic, especially when it comes to gatherings of large groups of people. Creating a hybrid event structure that’s easy to use for all participants is the perfect way to make sure you can proceed with your event as scheduled, even though it might not be how you originally planned it.

An Eventzee scavenger hunt is a great tool for creating an environment that is easy for at-home participants. They can simply download the Eventzee app and enter their specific event code, which allows them instant access. 

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bluegrass recently hosted a hybrid fundraising event with the Eventzee scavenger hunt app, where different sets of questions were offered to the at-home participants and the in-person attendees. By making it easy to have an option (virtual or in-person) on how to join, they were able to increase their overall participation.

Engage At-Home Participants

Simply hosting a webinar won’t suffice in 2022. People are inundated with virtual meetings throughout every work day, which could make participation in virtual events decrease significantly as people are sidetracked with emails, calls, and tasks. 

Engage attendees of virtual events by utilizing a scavenger hunt app, where participants can have fun with trivia, chat with other participants, and work for points to earn prizes by performing a variety of tasks and challenges.

Save Money, Time, and Energy

Does the in-person portion of your event include a paper passport that attendees can get signed to win prizes? With the Eventzee scavenger hunt app, you can save time and money by skipping the print and utilizing a virtual option instead. Attendees can simply scan QR codes or submit trivia answers and pictures to display their engagement. Each QR code scanned earns the participant a digital “badge” which functions as a digital passport stamp

This past summer, Champaign, Illinois, used the Eventzee scavenger hunt app to increase their tourism in their downtown area. In the past, they utilized paper passports but found that of all the passports they handed out, only a small percentage were completed and returned. By introducing Eventzee, they were able to change up the structure of the event, offered a variety of challenges, and overall saw a huge increase in participation.

Easily Collect Marketing Materials on the Scavenger Hunt App

Eventzee has 7 different challenge types for scavenger hunt app events. One of our favorite challenge types is the image challenge, where event hosts can prompt participants to take specific photos, whether that be in specific locations throughout a given area, or completing specific actions! With event attendees permissions, these photos make great marketing pieces for company culture, social media or future events!

Utilizing a Scavenger Hunt App Around the Holidays

The holidays are always super busy for everyone. Make this holiday season a breeze and plan an event hosted on the Eventzee scavenger hunt app. Whether it’s a large event or just one for a family gathering, we’re here to help!

Downtown Tourism Scavenger Hunt App

Is your downtown area heavily trafficked during the holiday season? Make sure that visitors and locals are engaging with local small businesses and restaurants as they complete their holiday shopping! 

Many downtowns throughout the US host passport events using the Eventzee scavenger hunt platform. Participants, who are likely competing for a prize or completion keepsake, are encouraged to visit as many businesses in the downtown area as possible. 

Snowmass Village, Colorado, is a snow-sport resort town and is frequently visited during the winter and holiday season. Snowmass Mountain Mission, hosted on the Eventzee scavenger hunt app, encourages visitors to explore the area in a self-guided manner, while still having fun, engaging with local businesses, and learning about the community!

Holiday Lights & Sights

One of the best things about the holiday season is the beautiful look of the festivities, including colorful lights, holiday decorations, and more. The Eventzee scavenger hunt app is a great platform for hosting self-guided explorations of decorations. 

The city of Loveland, Colorado, hosts a holiday light tour using Eventzee. Earlier this year, they hosted an event called “Hunt for the Loveland Holiday Gnomes”. The event was hosted along a light trail throughout the city, where participants were encouraged to drop by local businesses and other landmarks while searching for 10 unique holiday gnomes.

Hosting a scavenger hunt app event that features holiday attractions is a great way to allow visitors to have a self-guided immersive experience, while also making sure they don’t miss any of the holiday magic!

Sip Saratoga Launches Charity SantaCON With Eventzee

Sip Saratoga Launches Charity SantaCON With Eventzee

TUSTIN, CA, December 16, 2021 – Freeze Tag (OTC: FRZT), a leading creator of location-based mobile social games, announced today that Sip Saratoga is launching a charity, holiday-themed bar crawl in Saratoga Springs, NY, on Saturday, December 18th. Utilizing Eventzee scavenger hunt app technology, the “Saratoga SantaCON” engages participants in a Santa scavenger hunt, while exploring bars throughout downtown Saratoga.

The event, which is celebrating its 10-year anniversary, is open to the public. Those who wish to participate simply have to purchase a ticket and bring five canned food items that will be donated to the Franklin Community Center. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the cause. This year’s event will also be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Scavenger Hunt in the world.

“We’re so excited to be part of this year’s SantaCON,” said Craig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag, “Not only is this event so much fun, but it’s also a great way to get the community engaged in a fundraiser that will help local citizens, which is especially important around the holidays!”  

Once at the starting location, participants will be given the code to access the event through the Eventzee scavenger hunt app. The city-wide hunt will feature photo and video tasks, trivia, hidden QR codes, and more. In addition, each of the 15+ participating bars will feature drink specials for all players.

“Each year we’re so excited to see this event grow and have more people join us in the cause,” said Brian Miller, the organizer of the event. “We’re thrilled to be able to join forces with Eventzee to make the event run even smoother than it has in the past so we can focus on having fun and raising money and food for the Franklin Community Center.”

While the goal of the event is to raise food and money while also having fun, the participants can expect to be competing for a grand prize of $1,000. The SantaCON participant with the most hunt points will take home the cash.

Eventzee is ideal for trade shows, conferences and orientations. Businesses can use the app to drive traffic to specific locations, promote vendors or products and increase social interactions, while observing appropriate social distances. Some clients use Eventzee to hold contests and give away prizes to their most engaged customers. There are many ways Eventzee can help you achieve your business goals.
