The Best Website to Sell Tickets
Have you spent hours trying to figure out features on a ticketing system only to get blocked by an “upgrade” button? Are the fees on your ticketing platforms adding up? Stop paying for the features you need when you can get them for free. When you have questions a real person is just an email or phone call away.
Every minute counts for an event organizer juggling, well… everything. That’s why we made it possible for you to communicate with your ticket buyers and collect important customer data right from your ticketing platform. More integrated management tools means more “me time” for you!
Every ticket you sell with Ticketstripe enables us to give back to a growing community of nonprofit, charitable and fundraising organizations. And more tickets sold for nonprofit events means more funds to help promote those causes. That’s a win-win for everyone!

4 Tips to Help You Sell More Tickets Online To Your Event
Show the man behind the Green Curtain
Create richer personal experiences for your fans by “going beyond the veil” and giving customers a sneak peek into the inner workings of your brand. It builds a story and that creates die-hard fans, increasing lifetime per-customer profits.Learn more
Tap into Human Emotion
“Emotions don’t hinder decisions. They constitute the foundation on which they’re made!” – Douglas Van Praet, founder of “Unconscious Branding”.
Tap into the desire to be happy by promoting the joy of attending your events. Tap into the fear of missing out with “for one night only” verbiage and “sold-out” to open up the opportunity for premium and VIP upsells. Tap into the “helper’s high” with hopeful images and messaging that reminds us of how much good our small donation can really do. Use that emotional appeal to make your advertisements stand out and increase sales. And don’t forget to ask for that share!Learn more
Attract Quality Partners
What makes a good partner? Look for well-known names in your area (whether it’s industry related or media partners). You want that brand recognition to work for you. Ensure they have the pull necessary to do what you need them to. You need someone who can invest the time, effort, and funds necessary to make your event a success.Learn more
Know Your Customer and use the 80/20 Rule
It’s easy to think casting a wider net will bring in more profits. More tickets sales means more dollars, right? Not always. The Pareto principle states that “for many events, roughly 80% of sales come from 20% of customers”.
While it may seem counterproductive to limit the scope of your advertising, by knowing who your audience is and who it isn’t you can tap into that hardcore fan base and actually attract more dedicated fans—which generate a larger percentage of your profits both now and at future events.Learn more
