Surprise! One of the best ways to grow sales is to just meet with a lot of customers or prospects all at once. Creating and managing events represents a core element of the marketer’s repertoire. However, events can also represent a tar pit of details and aggravation . . . something that will give you gray hair (or more of the same).
Eventbrite can help you with many of the challenging aspects of event management. First, you can use the system to create the event, including setup of tickets and acceptance of credit cards or Paypal / Google Checkout. One especially nice feature is the ability to make an invitation match your company style and carry a logo. Next, you can promote the event, including of course sending email, but also publishing the event on major search engines. Finally, you can even use the system to keep track of attendees, and even manage payment for tickets at the door.
While it rhymes with E-vite, it’s an entirely different animal. The price for all of this event management goodness? 2.5% of all ticket proceeds (maximum fee of $9.95 per event). Free events are, well, free. Wouldn’t you take on more events if they were easier to manage? Look for a feed growth! event sometime soon, managed by Eventbrite.
