How to add the customizable, wearable ID to your merchandise offerings, protecting participants, and earning revenue.
ROAD iD is customizable, wearable identification that provides peace of mind while training and racing. There are many styles and options available, including pet IDs. Check them out at www.roadid.com.
With the partnership between ROAD iD and imATHLETE, event directors can offer ROAD iD merchandise to participants at a 30% discount - a $35 ROAD iD for just $25.
Companies that opt-in can earn commission opportunities ($2/sale) plus score free ROAD iD Gift Cards that can be used as prizes.
Here's how to offer ROAD iD to your participants:
1. Add the ROAD iD Integration
From the RD Dashboard, select Integrations from the left-side navigation bar:
Select ROAD iD. Select the company or companies for which you'd like to enable. Don't worry, that doesn't mean your participants will see it yet. You'll first decide which events to add it to!
You'll receive a confirmation
2. Add ROAD iD to your selected Events
From the left-side menu on the RD Dashboard, under E-Commerce, select Merchandise Manager.
You'll see ROAD iD in My Merchandise. Items are arranged alphabetically, so if you have a lot, you can also select Special Offers to filter down.
In the right-most column, Click Add/Remove from Events to select events and options to show in registration and/or the storefront. Start and End dates are optional. Be sure you check the event box on the left and also check selected options on the right.
Then click SAVE and that's all there is to it! ROAD iD will be included in your merchandise as specified.
3. Spread the word!
If you added ROAD iD mid-way through your registration period, we will reach out to those participants who registered prior to seeing the ROAD iD offer. Just reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll work with you on that.
If you've added ROAD iD to the event store, you can use a direct link. Reach out to us at email@example.com. It will look like this below, with the blank spot filled in with your EID. You can find that EID by looking at the URL for your event when you viewing it as a participant. But seriously, we can send you the link. The link below is for the DIY-ers!
It's a long URL, so you can use a shortner like bit.ly to compress that!
If you are looking for more ROAD iD images to share on social, the ROAD iD Facebook page photo album has a lot to choose from!
