“Mr. Retailer” lets out another sigh of despair as one more unsatisfied customer walks out of his gadget store; meanwhile, an online store sells another hundred smartphones in under an hour during its flash sale. While the retail stores are struggling to dodge the bumps on the roads, online markets are breaking a leg at the highest peak of Mt. Everest. So why do some presenters still rely upon the conventional ticketing strategies for their events? If you are one of those presenters, then here are all the right reasons why you should immediately switch to online ticketing for planning your event effectively:
FROM STALLS TO SERVERS
Gone are the days of setting up stalls and booking windows to sell your event tickets. Now, all you need is a computer and a working internet connection to get all your event ticketing done right at your fingertips. Plus, you won’t have to deal with angry customers as you put up a “Sorry, We Are Closed” sign. As long as you (and also your wife) are okay with it, you can keep up with the managing of your online ticket sales even at 3 AM. All the hassle of driving around town to distribute tickets to vendors and later returning to collect the unsold ones is saved. Also, you can cover a larger audience without even having to shift in your own chair. Anyone sitting in any corner of the world can buy event tickets without having to physically come down to any office or vendor. And for the cherry on top, online information and interaction is speedier, cheaper and more convenient as compared to offline. You can provide your customers with a truckload of information online and it won’t even take them hours of waiting in long queues to give their feedbacks.
RIGHT THERE, RIGHT THEN
Yapsody allows you to manage all sorts of dealings regarding your online ticket sales under a single roof. With the kind of extensive and easy-to-use features that we offer you, you can track sales, deal with cancellations, interact with your customers, provide services to your sponsors, and do everything else that an event covers (and sometimes, even more) in one place. You can add discounts, surcharges and taxes to your events, sitting right there with a coffee mug staring at your laptop skin – not to mention, collecting the ticket sales in your local currency while dealing in your local language too! Could it BE any simpler?

DO YOUR PART TO SAVE THE EARTH
Now, this might look like a cheesy school essay, but we can’t ignore the amount of havoc we’re causing in nature. Online ticketing is a much greener way to sell tickets, as you’ll be cutting down on the unnecessary wastage of paper by allowing your customers to store tickets on their mobile devices. And I don’t see any harm in choosing it as an alternative when you’re getting all the advantages of using the internet for event ticketing, and also doing your little part in making this world a better place to live in.
