How can I create a free registration form?
Limited technical skills? That’s ok, you don’t need to start from scratch or understand coding and web design to build your event registration form. With Ticketbud, you can create an online event registration form through the custom questions tool. It’s as simple as a click of a button -- in this case, one that says "Add Question."
After creating your ticket types for your event (such as Show Only and Dinner + Show), you have the option to create and assign questions to any ticket type. If you’re hosting a business event, you may ask about the attendee's job title or place of work. If hosting a dinner event, you may ask about meal preferences or dietary restrictions. The questions can be required or optional, and can be applied to specific ticket types or all tickets.

What should be included in a registration form for an event?
A well-thought-out registration form can help you to tailor your event for your audience and meet specific business objectives. The custom questions on your registration form will help you gather vital information to improve your attendee event experience, as well as provide valuable insights for your marketing, products and services.
A word to the wise, don’t overdo it. Most people don’t want to fill out an entire survey before purchasing an event ticket. The more complicated the registration process is, the less likely someone is to complete it. So, it’s important to find balance between data collection and a seamless sign-up.
First, consider what details might help you improve the attendee experience:
- Are you hosting a business event? Ask about your attendees job title or seniority level so you plan appropriate content and discussions.
- Will there be food and beverage at your event? Ask for individual's dietary restrictions.
- Is your event online or live-streamed? Ask attendees if they wish to receive a recording.
- Will any attendees need accessibility accommodations? Think: wheelchair ramps, interpreters, etc.
- Are there going to be speakers or special discussions at your event? Ask attendees to submit questions early to help tailor the discussions.
Beyond helping plan your event, your custom questions or registration form can be used to collect valuable marketing data and pinpoint future opportunities. For example, you may consider asking your audience how they heard about your event, or give them the option to receive newsletters or other information from your organization.
Do your best to keep your questions short, clear and concise so you can gain an understanding of your attendees' preferences and build a future contact base.
Once an attendee has signed up, you can send them a pre or post event survey if you want to learn more. Ticketbud integrates with Survey Monkey, and you can email a follow up at any time to your database with Ticketbud.
