Keen to find out more about why you should take behavioural science into your user journey?

Here are 3 reasons why you should enable this latest integration:

It’s PROVEN to increase Event Registrations (by over 22%)

Race reviews are already known to be one of the most powerful influence and persuasion principles in our industry for leveraging conversions; with Racecheck reporting to have already seen organisers increase sales by over 22%. By incorporating social proof directly into the event registration journey, you now have the opportunity to further stimulate conversions and minimize instances of shopping cart abandonment.

Simply populate your Racecheck Widget on your Event Checkout Pages to showcase your event’s Average Racecheck Score and, exclusively to Racecheck’s Premium users, a selection of your Recent Reviews.

Displaying these insights at the point of sale enables your prospective customers to make decisions based on information they trust, ultimately increasing the likelihood that they will have a satisfactory experience (and subsequently write a glowing review). This also maintains traffic to your page – reducing the likelihood of a visitor opening up a new page to check out reviews and becoming distracted.

Better yet, you can measure the positive influence that reviews have on your sales by installing tracking code throughout your Event Registration journey.

It enables you to manage everything in one, easy-to-access place

Whether you actively encourage people to review your races or not, it’s highly likely that entrants are reviewing your events on Google, social media or other third-party platforms.

A recent survey from Racecheck found that 90% of respondents said they read reviews when entering events, and for 73% of the group, the information gained from reviews will influence which races they enter.

By taking control, you can host the conversation in one primary location, enabling you to leverage their benefits and control the narrative surrounding your brand. This is an important consideration with regard to your Search Engine Relevancy because reviews contain relevant keywords that can help align your website with specific search terms. By having more reviews associated with your race, your website can benefit from a wider range of search terms. Additionally, your star rating can appear as rich snippets next to your Google search listing which according to Google can increase click-through rates by more than 10%; rich snippets have been found to increase click-through rates by more than 20-30%.”

With the mass participation sports world’s leading review platform now fully integrated within your RaceNation dashboard, you can benefit from a more comprehensive and complete view of your performance data in one easy-to-access place. You can also seamlessly navigate from your dashboard to the full Racecheck experience to respond to reviews and more.
