We’re thrilled to announce a game-changing feature that’s now available for all Yapsody Ticketing users across all pricing tiers: Add-Ons! This versatile new feature is designed to drive your profits by providing even more value to your ticket buyers.

What Are Add-Ons?

Add-ons are extra items or services that can be offered alongside tickets to your events. With Add-ons, you can upsell and cross-sell additional products or services to your attendees during the ticket purchase process. Whether it’s parking passes, snacks, merchandise, VIP packages, or any other event-related goodies, Add-ons empower you to boost your event’s revenue and provide a more comprehensive experience to your customers.

Why sell Add-ons for your event?

Selling add-ons for your event offers several advantages:

  1. Enhanced Experience: Attendees can personalize their event experience.
  2. Increased Revenue: Boost your event’s income beyond ticket sales.
  3. Competitive Edge: Stand out from the competition with appealing add-ons.
  4. Sponsorships: Attract sponsors for specific add-ons or packages.
  5. Data Insights: Gain insights into attendee preferences.
  6. Fundraising: Support causes through charitable add-ons.

Incorporate add-ons strategically to elevate your event’s success.

Promote Your Add-Ons

Make sure to promote your Add-Ons to maximize your revenue potential. Below are some ideas on how to promote the add-ons:

  1. Highlight its Value
    Communicate the benefits and value of the add-on to your attendees. Explain how it enhances their event experience or provides additional convenience.
  2. Visual Representation
    Use images or icons to visually represent the add-on during the checkout process. This helps to catch the buyer’s attention and makes it easier for them to understand what they’re purchasing.
  3. Partnerships and Collaborations
    Partner with relevant businesses or sponsors to promote the add-on to their audience. This can help expand your reach and attract new attendees interested in the add-on.
  4. Social Media Promotion
    Utilize your social media channels to promote the add-on, with engaging posts, visuals, and videos showcasing its value. Encourage sharing and participation from your followers.
  5. Email Marketing
    Send out targeted email campaigns to your attendee list, highlighting the add-on and its benefits. Include compelling visuals and a clear call to action to encourage conversions.
  6. Bundle Deals
    Offer bundle deals where buyers can save money by purchasing a ticket along with the add-on. This incentivizes buyers to add the extra item to their purchase. Eg. A tub of popcorn normally costs $50, but if you buy while you are purchasing the ticket, it costs you $40.
