This year has been an amazing year for us at Ticket Tailor in so many ways. We have been extremely fortunate to be able to work with so many fantastic venues and event organisers across the world. The most exciting part of our business is to watch how many people utilise our platform to bring communities together. As the calendar changes from 2018 to 2019, we wanted to take some time to reflect on this year and also to look forward into the future.
This year was a year of significant growth for our company and we are very thankful for the following milestones:
Our team doubled in size from 6 to 12 people with the additions of Jamie, Florin, Joe, Majesty, Jake, and Patriona.
We sold over 4 million tickets.
We had a record number of charities create events.
We served over 55,000 events throughout the globe.
We added new features like our Apple Pay integration, new event page design, the new Tazo Tix app, cross domain tracking for Google Analytics, Multi Ticket, ticketing for dogs, Broadcast and our new referral program.
With the success that we had in 2018, we wanted to ensure that we remained focused on our important mission of scaling with soul. We believe that with success comes responsibility and so we launched multiple community efforts this year. We helped EartH (Evolutionary Arts Hackney) and Community Music hit the crowdfunding goal for their new youth music center with a £5,000 matching campaign in the final days. We also decided to turn our annual Christmas Card into a giving campaign, which gave our clients a chance to send £5,000 to either All Dogs Matter, Rainbow Trust or Hackney Winter Nights Shelter. We are looking forward to watching these great organisations grow and to complete more initiatives like these in the next year.
While we are incredibly grateful for this past year, we feel that we are just getting started on the journey of our company. As we lay the foundation for our path forward, we have built massive plans for 2019 that will transform it into our best year thus far. These plans have been constructed through examining our previous years’ performance and by taking great consideration of the feedback we’ve received from our clients that we plan to take action on. In 2019 you can look forward to seeing us add new team members, launch new initiatives, design new features, and hopefully doing it all with a little bit of soul.
Cheers to 2018.
