Turn up the Heat

by admin on March 1, 2011

If the weather is cooling, why not plan your next event to start heating things up?

Selling Event Tickets is a cinch when you’ve planned an event that your supporters genuinely want to attend. It’s time to begin your preparations. First, of course, is the venue. Perhaps its time for a long stone hall with a fire roaring in a fireplace at one end. And what about the menu? Hot, savory soups, and juicy roasted meat tempt the palate at this time of year. Add the entertainment: a hot band to keep your guests moving.

Once you know what you mean to do, and when and where you mean to do it, you can begin generating excitement for the gathering with some advance publicity. Posters, Fliers, and Invitations all allow you to share the details with your mailing list or community. Choosing the perfect design helps sell the event, and adding your own images, such as logos or head shots, to your event collateral, helps to make it yours.

Choose a complete Event Kit and you can print Event Tickets, Raffle Tickets, and Drink Tickets that match your publicity materials. Such a lovely sense of completion ties your event together.

With the right details and the right advertisement, you can start selling Event Tickets. Create the event that people want to attend and you’ll have no difficulty selling those seats.

A Year of Fabulous Events

by admin on February 1, 2011

Ticket Printing around the Calendar

Are you worried about attendance at your regular gatherings? Flagging interest in a meeting or party that occurs 4 or 6 or 12 times a year may reflect a dreadful sameness. If your guests feel that these events all run together, getting them to come out over and over again can get difficult.

The solution? Create the distinction of distinct events by assigning each one a specific theme and then printing Event Tickets, Invitations, and other products to announce the theme.

Some themes are easy, almost too easy. Your Christmas holiday party, is a no-brainer, and you’ll find many designs and ticket templates to sell it. But what if you gather together every month? You can choose a seasonal theme, working with holiday and meteorological conditions. Or, you can get more creative. Why not throw out the seasonal themes completely and think of the year in different terms?

Colour, for example. With so many beautiful Event Kits to choose from, you can print publicity products in a different colour every month. Coordinate by decorating your venue in that month’s colour, and then asking your guests to wear that colour. Imagine how lovely your pictures will be when everyone comes in blue, or green, or white! Members will look forward to expressing themselves, and seeing how others interpret the theme.

Other options, for which you’ll find plenty of matching Event Kits, could be sports, nature, or cities. Browse the design gallery at a large online ticket printing company and you’ll find plenty of ideas.

Planning the year out in advance allows you to create a year’s worth of thematic intent!

Every Day It’s Getting Closer

by admin on December 18, 2010

Christmas is coming!

As a child, you anticipated the parties and presents. As an adult, you may find yourself overwhelmed with the details. Particularly if you’re selling tickets to a Christmas party, New Year’s celebration, or other seasonal event, you’re so busy talking to caterers, musicians, and professional Santas that actually selling those tickets takes a back seat to planning.

Yet, you must sell those Event Tickets if you hope to have a party. Here are some simply steps you can take to help generate more interest in your event and sell more tickets.

  • Print and mail Invitations (it’s not too late!).
  • Create an event page on Facebook. Ask guests to RSVP online.
  • Print and hang Flyers and Posters where potential guests may congregate/
  • Create a logo for the event, have it printed on Stickers, and distribute them everywhere.
  • Leak some of the exciting details to generate extra buzz for word-of-mouth advertising.
  • Using chalk, leave intriguing messages on sidewalks and walls.
  • Create a short video advertising your event. Post it online and share the link.

Creating a page with a unique URL dedicated just to your event helps you help your guests. It’s easy for you to share that link, and, as long as you include all the important details on your page, people will be able to learn everything they need to know about your party in one place.

It’s in the Details

by admin on August 3, 2010

Have you checked out Ticket River recently? Normally, I don’t like to go on about one website, but this company, based on the experiences learned from well over a decade of online ticket printing and sales, gets quite a bit right. Event Ticket printing is a whole-package operation. Certainly, anyone can purchase a general role of “Admit One” tickets, or perhaps print their own tickets at home, but a high quality printer offers those special touches that make a difference to those who notice.

Of course, any printer should offer you some basic professional touches: high-resolution images, in full colour and full bleed, with ink that doesn’t run or fade. Card stock should be thick and durable, with a professional finish in glossy or matte. Turnaround ought to be quick, with multiple delivery options, so you get your ticket when you need them. All Event Tickets, Drink Tickets, VIP Passes, and Raffle Tickets need to be individually numbered for security and accounting purposes. This all goes without saying.

Consider those extra touches, things that can help your planning, promoting, and actual event go that much more smoothly:

  • Booklet stapling helps your sales team stay organized and track ticket sales.
  • Perforated stubs keep the event organized at the gate.
  • Free designs and ticket templates are always welcome and encouraging.
  • Image upload is a brilliant way to customise your event without paying for custom work.
  • Event Kits let you look sharp; all your promotional materials and event collateral can match.

These are just a few of the special offerings that are free for every customer, every time.

Don’t forget the one thing that is all too frequently missing from your interaction with web-based businesses: the personal touch. When a company offers friendly customer service, available by email or phone, you know that they are willing to fix your problems. If you have a question, comment, or concern, there is someone waiting to hear what you have to say and make it better! Ticket River offers 100% satisfaction; if it’s not right, they’ll make it right, or refund your money. What more could you ask for?

When the details are right, the big picture comes into sharp focus!

Your FIFA World Cup Party

by admin on June 16, 2010

There’s still time to organise your World Cup celebration. Sports-themed parties are a fine way to gather your friends together in a small space. Or, let out a larger venue and sell event tickets to armchair athletes who are willing to pay a little extra to watch the big game on a big television, perhaps within a few feet from a fully-stocked bar. Find your space and start printing those Event Tickets.

You need not do much decorating, but if you want to liven the room up, a simple assortment of flags of many nations or team photos will do the trick. Just be certain you have plenty of chairs, along with an out-of-doors space convenient for those who feel the need to step out for a cigarette, a breath of fresh air, or to punch a tree. If you’re charging for Event Tickets, make sure the drinks keep flowing, and consider a selection of easy-to-eat foods. Barbecue is always welcome, but finger foods will be appreciated.

Advertise with Posters, Flyers, and Invitations. Be sure to communicate where interested parties can purchase tickets to your event. You may sell ticket through a local business, a website, or by using your excellent sales pitch on potential customers you meet in pubs, clubs, or in your neighborhood.

World Cup Fever is a curious affliction, but one that is not wholly useless. Turn your club meeting, charity fundraiser, or weekly outing in a World Cup part and start raising money while entertaining those around you in a style fit for athletes.

That’s Funny: Your Comedy Event

by admin on May 18, 2010

It’s no laughing matter. Times are tough and fundraising is not as simple as it once was. What do people crave in difficult economic times? Entertainment! And what’s the best entertainment for helping your supporters forget their troubles? Laughter, of course.

You can organise a comedy event with very little capital, especially if your group already has a space where you can set up chairs. Find young and hungry comics by searching the Internet, asking your friends and neighbors if they know any aspiring comedians, or sticking up Flyers in places like magic shops. Unknown comics will most likely be willing to work for free, their reward being a little exposure, the joy of helping your group, and perhaps a cup of tea.

Once you’ve arranged even a small part of the line-up, you can start selling Event Tickets. The publicity surrounding your sales campaign may even attract more funny people willing to get up on stage and act silly for a ten-minute set. Even if they’re not very good, there will always be another jokester waiting in the wings, trying to wring every last laugh out of your audience.

Laughter engenders goodwill. If selling Event Tickets doesn’t earn you enough money, the end of the show is the perfect time to make one more impassioned plea for charitable donations. People are much more generous when they’re in a good mood. All you have to do is find a few funny people to put them there.

Simply Golden

by admin on April 21, 2010

Do you remember the Roald Dahl book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? The story of the lucky boy who won a chance at realizing his dreams spawned a sequel and two movie version, one starring Gene Wilder, and the more recent Johnny Depp film. Perhaps you remember the key image involved in his winning moment.

Of course, it was the Golden Ticket.

In the Gene Wilder film, Charlie’s big win results in a big song and dance number, “I’ve Got a Golden Ticket,” and while your ticket sales may not have bedridden senior citizens whooping it up in front of their astonished families, you can still capture that sense of impending excitement with a proper Event Ticket for your every occasion.

In the book, Willy Wonka makes an announcement regarding something the public wants, in this case, a tour of his factory. The event is presented in such a way that the media is involved and the world goes mad, with everyone desperate to obtain a ticket. Have you tried marketing your event in such a way that everyone wants to be there? Have you sent out press releases or taken out advertisements?

Don’t hold the same boring event! Look to our large online gallery for ticket ideas. Research trends to learn what people want to hear, see, and do at your event. Create something that’s new or hip. Think of a great draw. You may not have a chocolate waterfall, but you can still create a magical evening for your guests.

Make your Event Ticket the hottest ticket in town. Create a lovely Event Ticket using a simple ticket template and write your own Golden Ticket.

For the Children

by admin on March 10, 2010

If you work in education, or childcare, or even if you simply have your own adorable young ones running about underfoot, you’re well aware that children, at the best of times, can be hard to manage. Add cake, ice cream, and games into the mix and you’ve created a dangerous situation. Childrens’ parties are the delight of children everywhere, but from an adult perspective, they can appear chaotic, loud, and even dangerous.

Inject your organisational skills into the mix when you print your own Event Kits online. A little planning ahead can keep the crowds under control and turn your event into an unqualified success. Invitations are just the start.

Event Tickets for events large and small make kids feel special and help you keep track of who’s attending. Find the perfect design and they make wonderful souvenirs, especially if you upload your own image of the guest of honour right to the ticket template.

Drink Tickets can take on many roles. Use them to keep the queues for food and drink orderly, or hand them out to game winners to be exchanged for prizes at the end of the event. With individual numbering, they can help keep everyone in order so there’s no disagreement about who’s first and who’s next. Big Posters make wonderful decorations, and guests can even take them home afterward.

Start browsing Event Kits and planning your next party for young people today!
