Company description

DoItInPerson.com is an online event platform that allows people to create, manage and promote events and communities. We bring all of the fragmented pieces of the event space together; from creating and managing your community, sending newsletters, booking speakers, selling tickets, adding sponsors to managing partnerships. We believe that events have relevance and meaning; you do not just attend an event; you experience a community.

Our Company aims to solve the issue of the extreme fragmentation and lack of actual data around the event space by creating one platform that allows organizers to consolidate all of the various components of the community and event management process into one integrated platform to not only simplify the process and save the organizer time, but to access data on how each of the pieces of the event interact with each other. This data will empower organizers to make better decisions when planning their events to make their events more meaningful and relevant to their target audience.

For users, DoItInPerson.com aims to become a personalized event discovery tool that uses the user’s profile, preferences and event history to match them with the events and communities that may be of interest to them.

Business model

Our initial revenue stream will come from a fee on ticket sales. This fee will be similar to other event ticketing platforms. All other services; community management, speaker listings and organizational listings will be free.

The additional revenue streams that will be added follow a premium model, where each section of communities, speakers and organizations will have a premium version option for a monthly recurring fee, which will unlock additional features. We also plan on introducing a venue directory and ancillary service directory that will work on a monthly, recurring fee. Lastly, we will implement a form of advertising on community pages and newsletters that we will create with the organizers and work out a form of revenue share with them.
