So you have the task of creating ticketing or registration for an event or attraction but want a bit more dazzle to entice and inform purchasers or registrants? Personalizing your ticketing page can be a huge marketing advantage for your company or organization whereby you utilize the ‘cover photo’ section of the page to not only help advertise the offering but also get other messages to the viewer. Your ticketing page can actually be a microsite whereby viewers can not only click to get tickets or register but also be aware of so much more through the marketing photos you add to your page.
Need Some Inspiration?
We’ve seen clients get very creative with the photos they choose to add to the cover photo section of their ticketing page; sometimes adding multiple photos as a slide show previewing what’s to come. Some examples have been:
*Bright, colourful photos of spectators for sporting events
*’Thank You To Our Sponsors’ poster pic with all the sponsor logos displayed for added exposure
*Beautiful pieces of framed art displayed in the viewing room for an art exhibit
*Adorable puppy pics for a dog show
*Amazing classic cars for a car show & shine
*Creatively displayed menus and delectable food pics for restaurants selling gift certificates
*Candid shots of speakers for a conference
*Artists happily painting and drinking wine for a paint nite class
*Closeups of happy people enjoying lip-smacking, juicy bbq ribs for a rib festival as well as participating vendors
*Exciting stage shots of bands appearing for a concert
*Fun pics of patrons having a great time at an attraction
*A room filled with mingling attendees for a networking event
How To Get Started:
The recommended photo size for the cover photo section is 1200x600px. Landscape smartphone photos work great and can be cropped as you wish. While Eventastic offers default cover photo options for every page created, you can often get amazing free photos online when googling free photo sites which may be perfect for your offering. Create poster like pics using photoshop and even drag and drop logos and key photo pieces to ‘pages’ or other doc format to screenshot to the right size.
Once you create a page you’ll see the large cover photo section in the upper right corner of your page with an ‘edit’ button to upload your choices rather than stick with the default photos provided for the event type you initially indicated. Choose and add cover photos to accurately depict and demonstrate the event you are hosting.
Click ‘Edit’ on the Cover Photo to change and add cover photos to your page. You can drag and drop or click inside the box to upload one or multiple pictures.
Consider including photos from past successful events, current renderings, graphics, logos, or any marketing piece that you want visitors to your page to see. When pictures are loaded into the cover photo section, they will be shown as a revolving timed slide show with clickable arrows to allow visitors to browse through them.
Always ensure that the pictures you select display the material you are most wanting to highlight. Crop your picture as needed with our cropping feature by clicking ‘Crop’, clicking the upper left corner inside the picture where you’re wanting to crop, and drag the mouse over the area of the image you want to display on your page.
The cover photos you choose to upload can be extremely important in adding to the success of your event or offering. Get as creative as your abilities allow. Capture the attention of viewers and give them a first impression of what they’ll experience.
