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, 9 in 10 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.

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 

Post in your event and auto-moderate your page 

"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"

My event is Sold Out

Congratulations on selling out! 🥳 But even though you've sold out.. your campaign isn't over yet.

Modern consumers are accustomed to free returns, flexi fares and cooling-off periods. Event tickets are no different and are viewed as an option, not a commitment.

After you've sold out, keep fans engaged through lineup announcements and pre-event updates. Include your Tixel waitlist link in every update to grow your audience and get live insight into extra demand for your event. 

 

Generating more demand on your waitlist will ensure that fans who can no longer attend can sell their ticket instantly, boosting event attendance.  This will keep your no-shows at a minimum, and maximise onsite revenue via food,  bar and merch sales. 

It's also important to regularly remind fans that Tixel is the only place to buy and sell tickets. You'll save time handling customer support related to scams, refunds and name changes, and spend more time on the fun stuff.

This event is SOLD OUT. If you missed out on a ticket, or can no longer make the gig, head to Tixel for safe resale. Buy, sell or join the waitlist here —> (TIXEL LINK HERE)
