I’ve written about this before– but no one read anything I said before (thats not to say anyone pays any attention now either). Evite is weak. But everyone knows about it and it’s easy to use. There are great alternatives out there, but no one knows about them. Two I think should be given another chance are:
- Phonevite – I LOVE this. You record your invite on the website or through your phone by calling a 1-800 number. Then you put in your friends numbers, and the site auto dials all of your friends and plays the message. What if your friends don’t pick up strange 800 numbers? You can have the site use your number on the caller ID when the invite calls go out. I think this is so much more personal than a static evite page.
- Socializr – This is very much like evite, but without all the ads- and much more detail. Go give it a once over.
