Creating a Series
What is a
Ikaria Series empowers you to create a multi-session course, workshop, or intensive that can be packaged as one product and paid for by registrants upfront. Series can help you engage your community more deeply by bringing together a group of people who are ready to invest more into their personal development.
Series are a great way for you to facilitate experiences that build on themselves and help develop a sense of community by meeting regularly with the same people. They’re also a great way to earn more by creating a higher value product with a higher price point.
Your series' name is what will appear as the title of your series on the series page and in search engines. Series titles must be at least 6 characters.
What makes Series different than events is the way that you schedule them. Series are intended to be multi-day workshops, so you can choose how often you want to meet. All of the Zoom meetings and reminder features will work for each individual event of the series.
By default, events are created in the timezone that you are presently in. You may select another timezone if needed. Visitors to your event page will see the event time converted into their local timezone, so you don't need to worry about that. When we send automate emails on your behalf, we make sure to include the timezone abbreviation to be extra clear about when the event is happening.
Your series description should let attendees know what to expect from the event, how to prepare, and what, if anything, they need to bring with them. Your description can be up to 5,000 characters.
All events on Ikaria are virtual, so the location is often a video conferencing link. One of the benefits of Ikaria is that we can automatically create a Zoom meeting on your behalf and attach it to the event. If you want to use this feature, make sure to connect your Zoom account.
If you don't want to use Zoom, you can provide your own video conferencing link and it will automatically be shared with your attendees.
Capacity determines how many people can RSVP to your event. Once capacity has been reached, your event page will show that it's sold out. The maximum capacity is 100, which is the maximum for a standard Zoom account. If you'd like to increase the total number, you can by upgrading to a large meeting license: Zoom Large Meetings
With Ikaria, you can host free events, pay-what-you-can events, or fixed cost events. If you want to collect payment through Ikaria, you must connect a Stripe account.
Free events don't cost anything. Attendees can RSVP without a credit card.
If you want to create an event where the attendees can choose their price, this is the option you'll want. You can set a suggested donation which will become the default when your attendee registers, but they will be able to either pay less or more depending on their budget.
If you want admission to your event to be a fixed price, this is the option you want. Attendees will be required to pay in order to secure their spot in your event.
