  • Brown Paper Tickets ( is also a great resource -- if you're looking for a headcount & contacts and/or a way to sell tickets. I don't believe it does email invites or follow-up. I've used them to post events with a ticket price, but it looks like they handle free events, too. Their service was helpful and friendly.
  • A great simple free tool to schedule a meeting and determine the availability of multiple people for multiple possible meeting times is . It is a web 2.0 service that does one thing and does it very well.
  • I have been looking for a cheap event registration for our annual conference. One I have found that I really like and I think we are going to go with is Eventville ( It has a number of advanced features and is very cheap compared to other companies I have looked at. It is $39.99 for event activation and only $0.99 per participant. Just my two cents. Thanks, Paul D. P.S. - I have no affiliation with this company. :-).

  • EVUGIFT is a free social planning website that has full RSVP, Gift lists, Private forums, Polls, check lists for each event.

  • I am looking for the best invite/RSVP tool that also accepts donations (it's for a fundraiser).  Any suggestions?  Thanks.
