Q: Why ReviewMyEventApp.com?
A: An Event App is an important investment an organization makes for their meetings and events to create a unique opportunity to offer attendees an interactive experience. As humans, we highly value the opinions of our family, friends, and peers. With these two things in mind, it’s time for meeting planners and event app users to have a voice about how their Event App platforms rate with regards to customer service, ease of use, reliability, and customization. It’s time for a place where users can speak openly and honestly about their experiences with their event apps. It’s time for end users to have a collective voice in an incredibly competitive market.
Q: Who is behind the curtain?
A: That would be me, Elizabeth Baranik, CMP, and I have a background that has includes meeting planning, hotel sourcing, event technology, social media, and so much more! I have been in the meetings & events industry for over 10 years, with a strong connection to the association world. My core focus has been on how we as a community can improve the industry and make smarter buying decisions. Hence, one of the reasons why I have started this site with 100 Reviews.
Q: I’m unwilling to take the time to post a review of an Event App if I will then be inundated with calls and e-mails from Event App providers using that review to hound me for meetings and demos to push their solution. How is the site funded?
A: The site is currently supported by partners/sponsors of the site. The reviewer’s email will NEVER be revealed or sold to any of the sponsors or anyone else unless requested by a court. So, the short answer is NO, you will NOT be receiving calls or emails from the sponsors. The value in sponsoring comes in the form of a listing format. This means that there is information in the right sidebar of the pages for readers to click-through to learn more about the Event App if they choose. I know what it is like to have vendors contacting you when you aren’t on the hunt for a solution so I’m particularly mindful of the tactic on the offerings to the sponsors.
Q: Will the Event App provider see my review?
Event App vendors are people, too. If they subscribe to the site or sponsor the site, they have access to read all of the published reviews just like any other interested individual. Remember that the reviewer’s name, organization or email address are NEVER published on the site or shared with anyone.
Q: Do Event App sponsors of the site get special treatment with the reviews? Example: are they allowed to request that a negative review be removed?
While we love the fact that there are systems that support this site and stand for transparency, it’s important to note that no Event App vendor can pay to alter or remove any reviews. In addition, all reviews that are submitted must go through a 7 step validation process. Once approved, they are published. The special treatment that some sponsors have is the ability to publish a reply to a review. Keep in mind that the reviewers name, organization or email address are NEVER shared with anyone.
Q: What if I don’t have an Event App to review?
A: If you don’t have an Event App to review, that’s okay. You can still gain access to the reviews with a one-year subscription fee of $99. Once your payment is processed, you will receive login information and have all-access to the online reviews.
Q: What if I don’t want to review my Event App provider, but I want to see the results?
A: The model for this site coincides with the altruistic-like industry. It’s simple. Share your review and you gain access to read other reviews. If you are reluctant to share, you can still get access to the reviews with a one-year subscription fee of $99. Once your payment is processed, you will receive login information and have all-access to the online reviews.
Q: What if I am a consultant or a non-Event App vendor and want to see the results?
A: There are many businesses and individuals that are interested in the results. You can gain access to the reviews with a one-year subscription fee of $99. Once your payment is processed, you will receive login information and have all-access to the online reviews.
Q: What if I want to rephrase or remove my review?
A: Your review will be posted exactly as it is submitted. ReviewMyEventApp will not alter a review without the written request of the reviewer. We all say things we wished we didn’t and we all make typos. If you want to update your review, log into your account, go to your account, and then go to the MyReviews tab.
Q: How long will my review be posted on the site?
A: Outdated reviews can sometimes provide an inaccurate view to the person seeking feedback. We archive reviews that are more than two years old. You can still read archived reviews, but you deserve to know that you're reading a potentially stale review. If a review you wrote is archived, you'll still have access to read reviews. By updating your review, you’re reaffirming that your perspective is still relevant and valid based on the current system.
Q: Why isn’t my review listed on the site yet?
A: ReviewMyEventApp will do its best to ensure that all reviews are posted within 72 hours. We’re getting reviews everyday. Each email that submits a review has to be validated and each review has to be read. If you don’t see your review or haven’t heard from me about your review within 72 hours, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com to confirm the status of your review.
Q: This site obviously takes a lot of work, how can I help contribute to make it even better?
A: This is probably the BEST question on the page! Thanks for asking. Yes, this site is quite an endeavor and all support is appreciated. For starters, you can share the site with your friends and colleagues. We’re aiming to be a household name and can’t do it without you.
If you’d like to really up your game and want to financially support the site, I will definitely welcome your contribution and can promise that all monies will go directly to maintenance or upgrades of the site.
