Ticket platform pricing can be a minefield, and the consequences for your events budget can be significant. Whether you are running a charity event and it means less money going to a good cause, or a music festival and it means budget for one less artist, it’s an important decision!Read More
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?Read More
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.Read More
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.
But it feels certain that there will be long-lasting effects – whether that’s how we approach sanitization, or the fact we’ll never take the feeling of being jam-packed into a raucous concert crowd for granted ever again.
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.Read More

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
When you’ve poured your heart and soul into creating a stellar event, it’s only right that you do it justice with a carefully devised promotion strategy.

The National Museums NI are a group of four museums, with the impressive achievement of being Northern Ireland’s premier cultural and tourist destination.
Each of their museums showcases a fantastic collection of objects, guiding visitors through folk history, transport, art and more.
During some pandemic downtime, they rolled out Ticket Tailor across all four sites, to help them with their entire ticketing journey. From selling tickets to checking in customers, it’s been great to see how successful the National Museums NI have been since reopening their doors.
We talked to Ian Cameron to find out how to run such a successful family of museums.
If you host a recurring event with lots of time slots available in one day, chances are you’re pretty popular.
We’ve updated our waitlist capabilities so that potential ticket buyers can sign up for your waitlist, for all upcoming time slots on that day.Read More
