Client spotlight: The craft market that grew from living room to exhibition hall

Client spotlight: The craft market that grew from living room to exhibition hall

The Scattered Seeds craft market only started selling tickets with Ticket Tailor in September 2021, but the ticket demand for their craft market quickly caught our attention.

7 must-haves for a sell-out and totally killer Halloween club night 

Forget Christmas, for some, Halloween is the most (weird and) wonderful time of the year by far. Among them, serial club-goers, who seize the opportunity to get up to their usual DJ-fuelled antics, only with the energy pumped up hauntingly high.

A chance to embrace all that is spooky and bizarre, as an event planner, there’s no better excuse to take club nights to whole new realms of hedonistic excellence. From mind-bending lighting displays to hair-raising music and outrageous costumes, the scope for creativity is vast. But with so many other organisers vying for the attention of late-night Halloween revelers, how can you make sure your tickets sell out thick and fast, and not scarily slow?

10 reasons you should make your next event hybrid

10 reasons you should make your next event hybrid

It’s hard not to notice the traction hybrid events are getting right now, especially given the implications the pandemic has had on gathering large crowds of people together. That’s not to say every event planner is suddenly well-versed in the world of hybrid though, which can definitely feel daunting if you’re new to all things virtual.

The important thing to remember is that hybrid events don’t necessarily have to take place on a grand scale with virtual reality elements and other high-spec tech. There are some really user-friendly tools out there that can help you take your events partly online without too much fuss. And there are plenty of rewards to be reaped from doing so.

Let’s take a look.

It’s hard to know what the long-term impact of the Covid-19 pandemic will really be, when it comes to socialising and in-person events.

Of course, when you’re an in-person event planner, you need to stay abreast of the latest developments in order to make sure your attendees feel both comfortable and safe. In this article, we explore some of the ways you can achieve this as society transitions from lockdowns and uncertainty, to a new kind of normal and beyond.

Improving our user experience

Our most recent ‘Can-crushing week’ has just passed, and this week we focussed on a lot of UX issues, to improve the experience of using Ticket Tailor. 

(‘Can-crushing week’ is a week we dedicate to making small changes that will create big improvements. Read more about can-crushing in our blog post.) 

Whilst you might not notice any major changes, your day to day usage of Ticket Tailor will be more frictionless and intuitive. 

Why is good UX important to us? 

UX issues are pain points in our platform that we notice are a bit clunky, and which can be slightly annoying for our event creators. 

We are on a mission to be the best-loved ticketing platform in the world, and that means we want everyone who interacts with Ticket Tailor to enjoy the experience. 

If we notice small inefficiencies, or workflows that could be improved, we are dedicated to improving them, so that all of our event creators get the best experience possible.
Our August ‘Can-crushing week’ flushed out some niggles. 

For example, we made our White label pricing clearer on our billing page. We also improved the experience for recurring event organisers, by making it easier to schedule Broadcast emails and reducing the scrolling you might have done when adding online event links to upcoming occurrences. As well as this, if you’re publishing events from your event page, your page won’t jump to the top after changing your event from draft to published, or vice versa, like it did before. 

We aim to keep Ticket Tailor jam-packed full of useful features, and at the same time simple and user friendly. We’ve heard from you that we do a great job, but if there is ever anything you think could be improved, let us know at hi@tickettailor.com
