But what if I want to promote my events to prospects that have not attended previous events, RSVPed or bought tickets? Good news! You can create custom lists to do just that.
Pro tip: custom lists are limited to a total of 5,000 email addresses between all lists. Please contact our Helpdesk should you require more.
Custom Email Lists vs Imported attendees: Custom Email Lists are completely distinct from attendees of your past events imported automatically by Promoter. For one thing, Attendees of your past events automatically imported by Promoter are unlimited. In other words, no matter how many attendees of your past events you have, Promoter will do the heavy lifting and import them for you.
