So, you have decided to sell tickets online through your website. Congratulations, this is one of the smartest business decisions you can make if you are focused on selling tickets. There are many success stories out there that can confirm this. Of course, this doesn’t mean that there’s no room for another website of this kind. On the contrary, with a few innovations and tweaks, you may be able to join the big league.
Of course, if you want to become a successful seller, you have to pick a good eCommerce platform for building and managing your website. Our advice is to rely on Shopify. This is the leading eCommerce platform in the world and it’s especially useful for small businesses. This platform comes with a wide array of tools that can help ticket sellers. Now let’s see some of the best tips that we have for all the readers that want to grab these online tickets business opportunities.
Offer ticket bundles
As we said before, Shopify and other popular eCommerce platforms are offering great add-ons and built-in tools to their users. Use some of these add-ons to create and offer ticket bundles. For example, you can provide discounts in case a person buys 3 or 4 tickets at once. You can create bundles that will include a ticket and a T-shirt or a ticket and a hat. Numerous examples have confirmed that people like these offers.
Look for special events
This advice requires website owners to be proactive. Whenever there are special events that are not announced publicly or have a limited (small) number of attendees due to the nature of the venue, this is a chance for sellers to earn more. Try to get in touch with venues like this and negotiate the terms. When people find out that you are offering tickets for events that can’t be found elsewhere, they will start visiting your tickets website more frequently.
Add images and videos
If you are a frequent event attendee then it’s a good idea to create a gallery where you will post images and videos from the events you’ve attended. This will stimulate potential buyers. It would be nice if you can add written content to these images and videos because this is good for SEO.
We hope that these tips will help you get the most from your online ticket selling business venture.
