So you’ve created the ticketing for your event and now wonder how best to share and begin sales? Here are the top 3 ways we recommend sharing when you own your branded ticketing software through Eventastic.com.
Begin by signing into your branded ticketing platform using your custom URL which was created during your sign up process. Once signed in you can proceed to share using any or all of the following options.
Sharing Option 1 – Branded Platform Search Page:
When you type your branded ticketing URL or share this URL through social media channels, emails, your website etc. the link will take you to your landing/search page as viewed in our example shown below. Any ticketing/registration event pages that have been created and clicked to be “public” (button at the top of your event page created) will appear as ‘cards’ on your landing page as viewed below. The more event pages, the more ‘cards’ appearing for people to click & view your offerings, buy tickets or register.
You may already have an Events tab/button or a “What’s Happening” button on your business website which now may easily be linked to your branded ticketing Landing/Search Page URL for instances when you have multiple events or special dates to be announced.
Sharing Option 2 – Full Event Page:
When you click to ‘Create’ an event page on your branded platform, a templated page appears where you can scroll from top to bottom and add the various features you want appearing on this page along with your ticketing or registration to help ‘sell’ and market your event. Add various features like photos, tickets, key points about the event, donation button for those unable to attend, agenda, video clips etc. When the link to this event page is shared, people can view all the details added to the page and click to purchase tickets. (Note: free events can have tickets created for zero dollars)
The shareable link to an event page created is found while in edit mode in “The Details” section of the page. Simply click the edit button and the popup appears displaying ‘Your Shareable Link’ which can be customized as you wish prior to beginning to sell the tickets. Simply copy and paste the sharable link to emails, social media channels, link to business website through a “Get Tickets Here” button, or “Register Here” button etc. and when a person clicks they will view the event page holding the tickets as created and make their purchases.
Sharing Option 3 – Ticketing Kiosk Window:
A third option in sharing your ticketing or free registration for an event is by using the ‘Ticketing Kiosk’ which is auto-generated every time tickets are created on an event page. The Ticketing Kiosk is a window holding just the tickets you create with no other marketing features for the event. Many organizers will intersperse the use of the kiosk for instances where their business website already shows all the event details or through social media channels where you just want to display the ticket portion only when the link is clicked.
The Ticket Kiosk is found when you click to ‘edit ticketing’ and scroll down to the button that reads “Online Ticket Kiosk”.
Once clicked you will be presented with various options in using & sharing this kiosk link holding your tickets. A full description is provided on the popup that appears. For instance, you’ll be provided a link to be copied, pasted and used when wanting to share only your tickets on social media channels without sharing the full marketing event page you created. When this link is shared and clicked the viewer will only see the ticketing portion of the page for quick customer purchases.
