Brown Paper Tickets: The Business Accelerator Suite
|October 23, 2012 12:00 AM|
|Your business savvy has weathered your company through the economic downturn. Great job! But did you know there's a way to not just sustain, but to grow your business, even in this climate?|
Businesses and entrepreneurs of all types, from restauranteurs to grocers, retail shops to shopping malls, cabinet-makers to fashion designers, are discovering how to keep their loyal customers and attract new ones through the power of holding customer events like classes, parties, sales, tours, film showings and more.
Events can help cast a new light on your business, or justify a new customer's first visit. Take it from Forbes magazine: "It's about deepening and enhancing client relationships." Need some more concrete numbers? Events can also increase purchase intent by up to 52 percent, according to an Advertising Research Foundation study referenced in AdWeek.
Brown Paper Tickets is an easy, free solution for event registration and ticketing of everything from classes to fashion shows, concerts to wine tastings, pop-up galleries to business seminars, and everything in between. Whether you already have an idea for an event or are still wondering what would be a good fit, give us a call! We'll offer some ideas and plenty of help.
Just so you know we're serious, here's what we're offering (all for free):
Our powerful collection of easy-to-use event tools, personal, 24 hour customer support and services offered as a result of our unique business model serve as an incredible Business Accelerator Suite for creating and managing events that can help your business grow.
1. Speak to a live professional representative, 24 hours a day!
- With 24/7 telephone support in English, Spanish and French, you and your customers will always end up talking to a real human voice never an automated system.
- Don't have time to answer phone calls about your event? Don't worry about it! Just tell our professional support staff what they need to know, and they will provide your customers with the information they need to be able to attend your event, day or night.
- Not computer savvy? No problem! We can walk you through your event set-up over the phone.
2. Spend nothing/make more money!
- Using Brown Paper Tickets for your event costs you nothing! Your ticket buyers only pay 99 cents plus 3.5% of the ticket face value, and that includes credit card processing and mailing them their ticket. On a $20 ticket, that's just $1.70 (as compared to your ticket buyers paying $2.09 for the same ticket with limited live customer service and without shipping of tickets on other sites)!
- If you use PayPal, Amazon Payments, Google Processing or your own merchant account for credit card processing of ticket sales, Brown Paper Tickets offers immediate payment and a 2.5% dividend, payable to you, the business or event producer. Why give you a dividend? Because we know that that 2.5% can make a huge difference in the cost of creating an event for your customers.
3. Free Event Promotion Support
- Events created through Brown Paper Tickets now automatically integrate with MailChimp, a powerful email marketing tool to help drive your best customers to your events while creating an email list of new prospects. Some things you can accomplish with a few clicks:
* Send 'thank you' emails after your event.
* Build your database of customer emails and keep in contact with prospective customers.
* Generate reports on which prospects clicked on your email, which ones made purchases, and where they were located. Plus, our event promotions team can provide hands-on advice and support for promoting your events.
4. Free Assigned Seating Support
- Custom seating charts are FREE for events of any size or configuration. Sports complexes, classrooms, cabaret seating, VIP sections you name it, we can make it happen.
- Let your ticket buyers choose their own seats or use our fancy computer algorithm to find the best available seats.
5. Drive customers to your own website to RSVP or to purchase tickets!
- With our ticket-buying widget, customers can start the ticket-buying process from your own website! You want better SEO for your website, and we want that for you, too.
