Event Management to Focus on the Business of Entertainment
Be it rowdy Rock & Roll or an elegant string quartet, the demands of live music ticket sales are the same. Your business needs to sell as many tickets for each live music performance as possible, online and at the box office, to maintain a profitable bottom line. We understand that need and here are the benefits of using our ticketing management software for live music:
Recoup Costs with Ticket Fees & Service Charges
(and retain 100% of all fees collected)
Costs can be reclaimed quickly when you can keep and retain any ticket fees or services charges you care to add. We offer industry leading tools allowing you complete control over the application of ticket fees including per-ticket and per-purchase options. Ticket fees can be part of a larger strategy to amortize annual costs across multiple shows. We give you fine grained customization to apply fees that exactly fit your business needs.
As a reminder, we do not apply any ticket fees of our own to your customers purchases and we do not charge you per-ticket fees. Live music ticket sales with ThunderTix is priced as a flat annual license based on the number of tickets needed per year. The only cost outside of the license fee is the cost of credit card processing.
Monetize Your Event Tickets with Lucrative Advertising
Our popular electronic custom PDF ticket printing is what your customers printout right at the time their order is approved or after they receive an email confirmation. Custom ticket printing includes the ability to further monetize your event with lucrative advertising. You can garner additional profits per show by selling the space available on the PDF Print-at-Home ticket. This option not only reduces costs by reducing the need to print paper tickets, it generates additional revenue from any advertiser you choose. Even better, put your partnerships with local vendors to good use by making the ticket advertising also function as a coupon.
If reduced costs and advertising revenue weren’t enough, the ThunderTix Branded Ticket can also include the logo of your venue or event becoming a true keepsake souvenir for your patrons.
Offer Exclusive Ticket Pre-sales with Private & “Semi-private” Events
The ThunderTix plan for live music lets you limit access to pre-sale tickets by marking them private or semi-private when you create a new event. You may want only a certain group to know tickets are on sale, maybe the Fan Club mailing list, for example. Mark an event as private and it will not appear on your public display of upcomming events, at least not until you want! Semi-private means your event has its own unique link that you can distrubute to VIPs or sales agents. The link works for everyone who has it, but only if they have the link – hence “semi-private”.
In addition to private pre-sale, we give you the option of a warning message when inventory drops below five tickets. The message is shown to your buyers as they review your events and urges quick action. Private events and low inventory warnings are just two examples of the ways live music ticket sales with ThunderTix helps improve your bottom line.
Raise Event Awareness w/Promo Codes for Radio, TV & Print Ads
Our sophisticated coupon feature can be customized to generate special promotional codes for each of your shows. These promo codes can be made part of the traditional advertising you already have (e.g., “Get $5 off of every ticket when you enter promo code I-HEARD-IT-ON-WKRP“). The return on investment for radio, television and newspapers can be better understood using promo codes since you can create unique codes for each outlet.
Promotional codes are merely one small aspect of the ThunderTix coupon feature. Coupons can be offered for a one-night-only event, or made to increase attendance to weekly shows on a day of the week that is under performing (“Get in free on Mondays!“)
Protect Yourself From Ticket Fraud with Barcode Scanning
ThunderTix is an industry leading authority on barcode tickets and scanners. Our live music ticket sales plan is available with our barcode expertise and the software to help protect you from ticket fraud plus resolving issues at the gate.
Barcode tickets can be printed on special ticket stock or sent as a PDF attachment with purchase confirmation email. The barcodes are then scanned at the gate or point of entrance on the day of your event. This not only increases gate efficiency and guards against fraud, it lets staff resolve lost ticket issues as well.
Not only we help keep your costs down but we also stay up to date! Attendees of nightclubs and concerts just love the latest in smartphones. You can cater to your patrons preferences by renting 2D scanners from us and use it to read the ticket barcode on most smartphones screens.
Get Your Ticket Sales Dollars Faster with Nightly Deposits
You won’t have to wait until the day of the performance, or after the show, for your ticket sales dollars. As tickets are purchased, all ticketing dollars are directly deposited nightly into your own business bank account. Use the money as it comes in to promote and advertise the event or other events you may have upcoming.
