The iFrame provides you with a ticketshop to embed into your website. This format allows ticket buyers to make their purchase without diverting away from your website.
Unlike other self-service ticketing providers, ticketscript gives you the opportunity to connect your ticketshop, using multiple sales channels, to unlimited websites and web pages. You can direct your customers to a specifically designed ticket page and ticketshop, which can be embedded into your site meaning that customers are buying tickets directly from your website.
Expanding Your Sales Channels
Having the maximum amount of sales channels gives your ticket buyers optimum opportunity to purchase tickets. The more ticketshops you make available, the greater interaction you have with your customers, which increases the likelihood your customer will buy a ticket.
ticketscript offers a direct connection to Facebook, as well as providing a wide variety of different ticketshop scripts to embed on websites. Your dashboard also provides you with a ticketshop URL link useful for social media sites, such as Twitter and WordPress.com accounts. This link is also incredibly useful when contacting potential ticket buyers via email, providing them with a direct ticketshop link.
To retrieve your URL ticketshop link (for posting on Twitter and inclusion in email promotion) follow these steps.
It’s also possible to connect your ticketshop to your Facebook fan page directly from the dashboard. To connect your ticketshop to Facebook, check out our blog Integrating Your Facebook Ticketshop. For some event organisers, connecting a ticketshop to one Facebook fan page isn’t enough because the administrator has several fan pages. With ticketscript, you are able to integrate a ticketshop on every Facebook fan page and sell more tickets via Facebook. Follow these steps in order to connect a ticketshop to your other Facebook fan pages via iFrame apps.
The ticketshop is now live on your additional Facebook fan page and it’s possible to sell tickets with this new sales channel. Read our Facebook Tab Blog for more information on enhancing the look of your tab.
Having a ticketshop on all Facebook fan pages will increase the likelihood of customers spotting the shop, purchasing tickets and sharing this with their Facebook community via the ‘share’ option which is prompted when the ticket is purchased. You can also customise each ticketshop to tie in with the look and theme of each Facebook and web page you are connecting to.
Optimising Your iFrame Ticketshop
ticketscript allows you to customise and optimise your ticketshop, so it can match and blend with your specific website style. To customise the look of your ticketshop read our blog ‘Getting your ticketshop live on your website’. Whatever your website layout, you can optimise your ticketshop accordingly, including increasing it’s size. You can lengthen the frame by amending the height number (bolded) within the code that was pasted into the back end of your website.
