Day 5: Why sell tickets for your NYE event online?


Tens of thousands of event promoters use Skiddle to promote hundreds of thousands of events every year, are you one of the few promoters that has not yet added tickets to your NYE event? With New Year’s Eve being the most competitive night of the events calendar what are you waiting for?

New Year’s Eve events always runs at full capacity don’t they?

You might be holding off, thinking you’re bound to get enough on door sales so don’t need to push it even more, and whilst this might be true and many NYE events do reach capacity, do you really need to take that risk? Especially when many of the NYE events in your area will also be ticketed online.

Having the knowledge your event will be busy

There’s something to be said for the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’ve already sold a percentage of your event tickets (or sold out of them) before the doors open. Watching your tickets sell in the build up to your event is one of the best ways to concentrate your mind on making the event the best it can be rather than worrying about how many people are going to be in the venue.

Who buys tickets online?

People still ask the questions: “who buys event tickets online?” – well the answer is every man and his dog does. No matter what size event you’re talking about, from the biggest festival or the smallest club night – people want to buy their ticket in advance to ensure they get in. This means you should be selling online as one ticket purchasing option wherever possible.
