Launch contests to increase ticket sales & collect email addresses

Wish to increase ticket sales and also create a huge mailing list? Start a contest!

discount coupon

Here’s how it works

Ask your site visitors to submit their name & email addresses and then at the end of the contest, select a random submitter who would get a discount code which they can later use to purchase discounted tickets.

How do I set it up

To collect name and email addresses, you can embed Dryfta’s newsletter subscription widget. Get it from under your Subscribers list in Dryfta event platform.

To create discount codes for your tickets, use Discounts manager tool in your Dryfta platform, and share it with the random submitters you have chosen. The winners would use the discount code to purchase the tickets.

Who else does it

Skift Global Forum recently organized a similar contest and has collected a lot of email addresses while also improving their ticket sales!

Here’s a sample subscription widget (Embedded from our demo Dryfta platform)

 

Sell tickets on your event website using Stripe payment gateway

Less than 5 percent of the people have PayPal account, while more than 95 percent have credit cards. If your event website permits only PayPal, it will mean that most attendees will be unable to pay. In such a case the creation of your event website was pointless. Therefore, a credit card processor is necessary to facilitate all payments and not just PayPal.

We recommend Stripe’s credit card processor because it charges less per transaction fee, is very organizer-friendly, and because we already have an integration built inside Dryfta, for Stripe, just like we have integration for PayPal, Authorize and 2Checkout.

However, Stripe is only available in select few countries right now. So, if you operate out of a Non-Stripe country, here’s our suggestion:

If you or your acquaintance has a bank account and a physical business address in any of the following countries mentioned below, you can open a Stripe account and once activated, you will enter the provided credentials into Dryfta which will allow you to accept Credit Card payments on your Dryfta-powered event website. All your collected payments will be directly transferred to your bank account in that country.
