Selling tickets can be an easy task with the right direction.
Selling tickets online is a convenient way for potential attendees to make a purchase. You can set up a ticketing service to sell the tickets for an event that you a promoting through platforms such as Eventbrite. You can also purchase tickets for resale and sell them on sites like Stubhub. Stubhub allows a person to use tickets that they have purchased and sell them for whatever price they choose. This is advantageous because it gives you the exposure that you need in order to sell your tickets. Creating web properties like a website or Facebook page/application with online sale functionality is also an option. This gives people the opportunity to purchase tickets directly from your Facebook fanpage. Marketing can be used to drive consumers to these platforms for maximum exposure and in turn ticket sales.
A team or an automated system can be used to sell tickets as well. Credit card processing can also be done over the phone. You will need to implement a marketing campaign in order to drive people to make the call. Print or broadcast ads are good options for driving people to make the call to purchase tickets. With a print or broadcast ad you can use phone numbers specific to the ad so that when a call is placed you know specifically where the call is coming from. This is helpful because it will tell you what ads are converting the most and in turn you can tailor your advertising efforts to maximize sales.
Tickets can also be sold at the door. With mobile credit card processing and having cash on hand you can sell tickets from virtually anywhere. Giving people options is critical because this means that no one will be turned away due to the wrong form of payment. An effective strategy to implement would be to capture a subscription through email for future events that you may have tickets for with display ads. This will allow you to build your list, regularly update people about events, and then drive them to the box office.
Having options to sell tickets is critical. Giving people the option to pay online, over the phone, and at the door will appeal to everyone. People have preferences and offering various payment options will help to sell the tickets quickly.
