4 Ways to Boost Ticket Sales for Your Event Using Twitter

Looking for ways to increase ticket sales to your next event?

You’re probably already aware of it, but Twitter can be a highly-effective tool — if it’s used correctly.

If you want to sell more tickets via your website, the following four tips will help you get the most out of Twitter.

Sell tickets directly from your website

Great news! We’ve just introduced website widgets that allow you to sell tickets online direct from your website. The customer can go through the checkout process without leaving you site, and all you need to set it up is  a couple of lines of code.

See the example below:

Sell tickets free!

When you search for “Sell tickets free” online you get a whole load of companies all saying “Our service is free”. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find that what they really mean is that they will pass their fees on to your customers in the form of booking fees. If you tot up these fees, you will see that they amount to rather a lot of money.

Sell tickets for charity events – 30% Discount

Because of our low, predictable monthly pricing, we are helping many charities sell tickets online. And now we are pleased to announce we are offering 30% off our prices for charities.

This means if you are running a charity event you can sell your tickets for just £10.50 + vat per month (30% off the usual £15). And there are no contracts or hidden service fees, just pay for when you are selling.

Now live: Sell tickets online with Stripe

Update: Our Stipe integration is now live.

We are excited to announce that we will soon enable you to sell tickets using the Stripe payment system in addition or instead of PayPal.

If you haven’t heard of Stripe, it’s a new way for you to collect money online. Here are the headlines:

A cheaper alternative to Eventbrite

Hey, welcome to the Ticket Tailor blog. Ticket Tailor offers an online ticket selling system with a difference: we don’t charge any per-ticket fees, and instead a predictable low monthly fee. If you are new round here, check out our home page.

We think Eventbrite is cool. It has a load of great features and has done a lot to disrupt an old-fashioned ticketing industry. But Eventbrite is expensive and those fees can really add up.

How to Make your Event Greener

With the London 2012 games just round the corner, the capital is inevitably going to be put under a considerable amount of pressure. Among this pressure is the vast amount of waste that London will have to endure. Here at Ticket Tailor, we thought a great way to minimise this is to find how we can all make our events a little bit greener!

Website Integration Exhibition: Part Two

After our first exhibition, we’ve received requests to see more of our web integrations.  So we’re flinging open the doors once again and bringing you a few more examples of our work.

New Feature: Seating Plans

UPDATE 2016: We currently can’t support interactive seating plans.

For some events, seating is key. It’s important that if you run events whereby customers need to purchase specific seats, these customers are able to do so quickly and easily. That’s where Ticket Tailor’s new seating plan feature comes in. With this neat addition to our service, your customers can now choose exactly which seats they wish to purchase tickets for – complete with an aerial map of your venue.
