Party Invitations

This has been a crazy wonderful week for Inviter. We did something unusual this month, but really this week. We had 3 webinars; two were this week. We focused on getting everyone ready for July 4th. It’s an important holiday for those of us here in the United States. I say that because Inviter customers are International. But here in the U.S., it’s an incredibly important day. It has more meaning now with the political climate being what it is.  With that in mind, we wanted to make sure everyone was properly prepared to celebrate July 4th.

Our first webinar was #July4Bash on June 16th. This was for everyone, the everyday person wanting to throw a fun July 4th gathering. If you want to get the party started before the party and create buzz and anticipation, then using Inviter to create an invitation, a video invitation, is the best way to do that.

I’ve been doing webinars a little differently. I do them live on YouTube live events. I also reach out to our Periscope audience as myself (@andreeac_t).

We’re using the power of video to spread the word about how you can create amazing invitations to get your guests talking about your July 4th party. You’re not just creating invitations, you’re creating video invites that are the beginning of many happy memories.

Graduation is an exciting time to recognize the academic accomplishments of students, where a center of reflection and anticipation brings them closer to their future dreams. When a joyous time like this draws near, parents, friends, and family members race their way to see the graduation ceremony to commemorate the memorable day for their special someone.


In the 2005 Stanford University commencement speech from former CEO and entrepreneur of Apple, Steve Jobs; he openly spoke about his failures and success in working among the tech industry. He continued to deliver the speech about his personal struggle with cancer and how that affected his life. While this impressive tech entrepreneur have accomplished so much, he has also failed an immense amount. His inspiring speech continues with hopeful, but realistic wise words for graduates.

He stated, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

While Steve Jobs brings inspiration and hope to students confused by the post-grad life, graduation should be seen as a milestone moment for applauding.

A milestone moment like this is meant to be captured and shared, and students everywhere want to highlight their accomplishments as students with a click of a camera. With technology soaring the modern world, you can do so by sharing your captured moments with your family and friends via video greetings.
