Our complete communication guide

A successful ticketing strategy doesn’t begin and end when tickets go on sale. Providing flexibility to your fans at each stage of the campaign drives earlier sell-outs and higher attendance at events.

 

Tixel is here to help you every step of the way, which is why we’ve created a complete communication guide to help you drive demand and maximise attendance while protecting your fans from scammers.

Pre-Launch Checklist

Tixel gives fans the confidence to buy tickets early. In fact, 84% of event-goers said they’re more likely to purchase tickets early if they know that they’ll have the option to easily resell their ticket later*. This is why it’s vital to ensure that Tixel is incorporated into your launch comms to help you maximise the impact of your onsale.

It's also important to outline your refund policy from the get-go. If you are not offering refunds, you can advise fans that Tixel is available as an alternative to seeking a refund.

Q: Can I resell my ticket?


A: We are working with Tixel [hyperlink to event page] who provide a safe and easy place for you to sell your ticket to another fan.

To sell your ticket please go to tixel.com/sell and follow the prompts.


​If you have already found a buyer for your ticket but want to complete the transaction safely, you can create a private sale by selecting the ‘make my listing private’ option at the final step. 

Even if you have posts off or moderated, scammers can still sneak into the comments of approved posts. One way to tackle this is to block certain keywords to ensure that people aren’t making comments about selling or buying tickets.

My event is on sale

Even before your event is sold out, there will be fans whose plans change. Directing fans toward the official resale page will allow fans to safely resell their ticket and reduce the number of no-shows and refund requests on your event, while also protecting buyers from purchasing fraudulent tickets.

As a Tixel partner, you will have insight into the event’s aftermarket and know exactly who is actually walking through the door of your event. With the resale rate of events ranging between 15-40%, this is unlocking a huge data set of fans for you to market to in the future.

Make sure your primary link is directing fans to your ticketing provider. Click here for instruction on how to add your primary ticketing link to your Tixel page.

Post in your event and auto-moderate your page. 

Example copy:

"Please be aware of ticket scammers. Tickets are still available from our website.

As a reminder, the only place to buy/sell secondhand tickets is from our resale partner Tixel"
