Music and Musical Event Tickets

Nothing uplifts the spirits quite like a song that perfect complements your mood, and if one song has the power to uplift the listener, how much more powerful is an entire concert?

Communicate the power of your music by printing your own event tickets online. There are plenty of ticket templates to choose from, so you can always find the design that best suits your genre. Classical, jazz, rock, hip hop…whatever sounds sooth your savage beast, there’s a general admission event ticket just right for you.

The perfect image is the perfect way to help generate excitement about your upcoming show. Music-themed event tickets help you sell seats, and most of them can be ordered along with matching event kits, so you can hang poster or flyers, send out invitations, and even distribute VIP passes with the same design, giving your operation a professional, cohesive look.

Special club events can make good use of music-themed event tickets as well. Print out passes in advance and start selling admission to exclusive shows, popular DJs, or crowded nights. You know you’ve made a success when you sell to capacity days before the event even happens!

It’s all about the music! So, find a musical event ticket to illustrate your love of lyric and melody and start selling your show.

Jazz it up!

by admin on January 20, 2011

Are you a starving artist or a struggling musician? If you’ve devoted your life to creative pursuit, it can often be difficult to shift gears and turn your attention to the making of money, but, no matter how much your music sustains you, you still need money to live. Independent artists who are in any part responsible for enticing fans to attend their concert can take a few simple steps to start selling more event tickets.

Consider this: if you have fans, they’re already interested in buying concert tickets. Your fans like you and want to hear you play. So, are you doing enough to give them what they need? The best motivation for true supporters to attend your shows is advance knowledge.

You don’t need an expensive advertisement campaign. Rather you need to focus your efforts. Those fans who wish to purchase event tickets to hear you play: where are they?

  • Record stores
  • Dance clubs
  • Concert Venues

Think about where they’re likely to be found, and invest a little money in some eye-catching Posters or Flyers. You’ll get the maximum return in tickets sold for the minimum investment. For a few dollars, you can reach hundreds of people.

More that likely, your fans are also on Facebook and Twitter. Are you? If you haven’t created a Facebook fan page and begun reaching out to your existing fan base while creating new listeners, go do that right now!

If you do have a fan page, make sure to communicate regularly, at least once a week, although once a day is better. Don’t overdo it, but do make sure to offer a few posts reminding people of upcoming concerts, letting them know when and where they can buy tickets, along with all the details about the upcoming concert. Some bands report that these Facebook posts are the number one motivator in selling concert tickets!

Grassroots Organisation

by admin on June 23, 2010

Whether your group has millions of supporters around the world or consists solely of you and your amazing html skills, your events, your ticket sales, and your success can benefit from the help of local activists who share your concern. Mobilisation of a grassroots surge can help you create events of greater interest to the public, sell more event tickets, and continue doing your work around the clock, even when you can’t personally stick around to supervise.

Step 1: Find your base.

Call a meeting. Advertise your intention in every place you imagine your supporters may be waiting for you. That will include local media outlets such as television, radio, magazines, and newspapers. You will also want to hang flyers and posters in relevant shops and public places, such as the library. And of course, you need a strong web presence: a website, along with a blog. Leave messages on others’ forums, and send email blasts if you can obtain useful mailing lists. Invitations sent via snail mail can also be effective, if you have a good list of addresses.

Step 2: Hear them out.

Once you’ve gathered local activists to your meeting, state your intentions and open the floor for discussion and suggestions. This is the heart of grassroots organisation. Your goal is to raise money for and awareness of your cause. Allow interested participants to take charge. If, for instance, you wish to raise $1000 for cancer research, introduce yourself, explain why you are interested, and ask people what sort of fundraiser they would like to support.

Step 3: Activate.

Having settled upon an event, you can begin planning. Let your grassroots army do the heavy lifting, and support them as much as you can. Be sure to involve local businesses and personalities as much as possible. This would include hiring caterers from your town, using local venues, asking local bands to play or local celebrities to speak. Your grassroots movement is much more likely to identify with your efforts if they can see its local appeal.

Step 4: Sell that event.

Once planned, everyone can start selling event tickets. If you’ve made an effort to create a truly homegrown event, you’ll sell more tickets. Even those who aren’t invested in your charity will want to participate in a big community event. Print your own event tickets online to save money, then let your volunteers sell tickets to friends, family, neighbors, and strangers. Ask local businesses if they would be willing to sell tickets through their shops. You can also sell tickets online, through your own website, or through a site like TicketRiver.com.

Step 5: Don’t lose your momentum.

If you’ve carried off one big event, keep that grassroots army in motion. Let them keep planning and executing the events they want to see! If your organisation works from the ground up, you can create a vibrant movement, accomplish your goals, and bring people together for a good cause.

Your supporters are out there, waiting for you to engage them. Go find them!

The Long Weekend

by admin on June 8, 2010

God Save the Queen!

And God save our beloved Australian tradition of the Long Weekend! We’ve got a marvellous one coming up, and if you haven’t planned your tribute to the Queen yet, it’s not too late. All across the continent, your friends and families are scheduling barbecues, film festivals, musical events, and mini-vacation getaways in accommodating hotels near big cities, beautiful beaches, or splendid outdoor opportunities.

Tickets are selling fast for events like We Love Sounds, an electronica festival in Adelaide, The Grantville Pirate Festival in Gippsland, and Mr. McGee and the Biting Flea, a children’s storytelling event in Brisbane. Not your cup of tea? Keep searching for some proper June entertainment, or start planning your own event.

How about a Block Party? For urban, suburban, and exurban living, the Block Party is an ideal event for those who love their neighbors, as well as those who don’t know anything about their neighbors and realize that they probably should. Check with the city to pull permits if you want to close off your street to motorized traffic and start knocking on doors. Who can loan some powerful speakers and play DJ? Who can roll out a grill and start barbecuing? Who will bake desserts? You can sell tickets if you want to make your money back, or earn a little something for local projects, like planting trees and flowers in public spaces.

Printing out Posters, Flyers, and Invitations will help increase attendance at the event. Hang them in local shops, on telephone poles, in bus shelters. Remember that this is a friendly, neighborly event. The more you talk to your neighbors and inspire a sense of anticipation, the more likely they’ll be to attend your party.

Or, there’s always the tried and true staycation. Buy yourself a case of beer and download those movies you’ve been meaning to watch. Celebrate the Queen’s birthday in whatever way is festive to you!
