The Art of Online Ticket Sales

What is Ticket River?

The short answer: We are the premiere online ticketing service, covering everything from management and promotion to printing tickets and marketing materials. But we’re much more than a short answer.

Here are just a few examples of what Ticket River can do for you:

Online Ticket Sales

Whether you’re selling tickets online or off, Ticket River can help! It only takes a few minutes to design an event page through our service and start selling tickets. Not only do we offer Ticket River credit card processing services, but you can also offer PayPal as a payment option. All transactions are safe and secure and are easy to track through Ticket River!

Printed Tickets for Offline Sales

Part of what makes Ticket River unique is that we also assist with offline ticket sales. Offline ticket sales are traditional, printed tickets which can sell yourself in advance at local retail outlets.

Choose from hundreds of different templates to make sure you get the perfect ticket for your event. As an added bonus, you can also enter in your offline sales to your Ticket River event dashboard, giving you easy access to your total sales numbers.

What Is Ticket River?

We can help you set up a custom ticketing plan, creating your own ticket types like General Admission, Student, VIP, and more, all available to either print at home or pick up at will call. Want to offer your VIPs the golden ticket? We can help!

The Art of Promotion

The Internet is an amazing resource for promoting your event, and Ticket River can guide you as you navigate!

Email marketing allows you to send personalized invitations to people in your address book or other file. Social networks like Facebook and Twitter are critical to keeping in touch with your base and spreading your message. And if you’re going out and spreading the news about your event, you’ll get embeddable buttons to direct users back to your personal event page.

Want even more sophisticated promotional tools? No problem! We have an affiliate program which generates unique links for each of your partnering websites. Easily track ticket sales referred from each website and offer incentives based on their performance.

If you have your own website and would like to make the purchase process even easier for your ticket buyers, how about embedding our ticket sales widget on your own website. Ticket buyers can select their tickets and seamlessly proceed to checkout without ever feeling like they have left your website. Smooth.

Combine all this with our fantastic customer support and you have the number one spot for everything you need to make your event a success!
