Looking back, it’s hard to believe how much happened in the ticketscript world last year. By way of a quick trip down memory lane, here’s a selection of highlights in the form of our top 10 most viewed blog posts of 2013.
We surveyed 1,000 UK ticket buyers on their attitudes and behaviour regarding ticketing and events. This post contains a full report of the essential industry insights delivered by the survey.
Since February 2013, Facebook has been supporting events promoters with the option of a “Buy tickets” link for their events pages. Using ticketscript, you can set this to send people to your ticketshop tab over on your main Facebook page.
An important distinction in the events industry that not all ticket buyers are aware of. Here we explain what you and your buyers need to know.
At ticketscript, we don’t just provide you with the technology to sell more tickets – our entrance management teams will make sure your event runs smoothly on the day too. We asked Toby, our man on the ground in the UK, to share his experiences from doing just that.
More Facebook news in this post. To prevent users being endlessly spammed by event invites, only 100 invites can now be sent in one go, with a cap of 300 “pending” invites at any one time.
October 2013 saw us surpass a huge milestone with the sale of our ten millionth ticket – the full story here.
Broadening the perspective beyond our gig/festival heritage, we decided to delve into the ever-growing world of apps built to help you run events of all kinds.
Something of a Ronseal this one. We all need new ideas on how to make sure we’re using social media as best we can, whatever our goal is.
We had an incredible time in at ADE in October, with a substantial gang of ticketscripters heading to Amsterdam to make friends, close deals and, naturally, cut a few shapes. This blog post is about the super-kind clients that gave us a few sets of hot tickets to give to our social media audience.
A mammoth post first looking at why social media and music are so intrinsically linked, then offering a host of inspirational ideas from bands, DJs and other artists successfully innovating on social media.
