Using Eventbrite to promote and sell your event

Eventbrite gives you all the online tools you need to bring people together for an event and sell tickets. There is an in depth guide to Eventbrite available.

To start selling tickets and promoting events, visit the Eventbrite website.

I’ve also popped together this short step-by-step guide to posting your event:

  1. Create an event webpage. Add an event description and details to start selling tickets and collecting registrations. Simple tools let you create an event webpage with logos, images, and URL, and send barcoded tickets. Eventbrite is also completely mobile, there is a free mobile app to help users register for events on the go! Eventbrite also accepts debit and credit card payments with our credit card processor and PayPal.
  2. Promote your event use the free tools. You can email personalised invitations to your contact lists. Keep your event private, or automatically list your public events on search engines and our directory. There is also an option to allow attendees to promote your event on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to their friends and network.
  3. You can keep an eye on ticket sales and see how many people are coming to your event by viewing your ticket and registration sales, and ramp up your promotional activity as needed.
  4. Eventbrite allows you to manage your event entry. You can know who’s coming and check them in at your event by printing a guest list or checking names off a list on your iPhone or Android device.
  5. To help with tickets, you can scan tickets with your phone. Eventbrite provides a free Entry Manager app to validate barcoded tickets at your event.

Users of Eventbrite should be aware, if you sell tickets on Eventbrite, you cannot extract your funds from your account until after the event.
