You’ve just created an amazing event. Now is the time to start selling tickets for it. Luckily for you, we know exactly how to sell event tickets. Read on to find out your options.
At The Event
Your first option is to sell your tickets at the event itself. This involves doing quite a bit of marketing in order to get people at your door and eager to buy. This will cause long lines though and is not always the best option. You are relying on people to show up and have no idea what number of them will beforehand.
Your second option is to sell event tickets online. We highly recommend doing this because it gives you a better idea of how your marketing efforts are doing and exactly how many people are going to indeed be at your event. Not sure how to sell tickets online?
No problem, we have you covered there too.
Choose A Ticketing Platform
The first step to selling tickets online is to choose a ticketing platform. Make sure they have low fees, good customer service, and can do exactly what you need them to do. Then find a merchant account to connect to said ticketing platform in order to process customer payments. Make sure they also have low fees and are capable of processing a variety of payment options.
Build A Premium Website
You will then need to build a website for your ticketing widget to live on and act as a home for all your marketing efforts. We highly suggest using a website developer instead of a builder because they create SEO-optimized and user-friendly websites that search engines and potential customers love. A good, affordable option to consider using is Atavion.
Both Online And At The Event
Your third option is to utilize both online and offline sales. This allows you to get a better idea of how many people will be attending and give people the option to skip the long lines. However, it also makes it easier for the less tech-savvy generation to also attend. Along with people who might be walking by and decide last minute that they too want to go.
