How to Help Your Fans Find Your Event: “Buy Tickets” Buttons

  • By ShowClix Team | Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

We’ve already covered how social media event promotion can sell more tickets, as well as advantages of a web-based box office, but of course, you can’t sell tickets if folks don’t know where to buy them!

With our promotional tools, you can easily direct ticket buyers to your event page with a pre-made button on your website. All it takes is a simple copy and paste of some short HTML code into your site.

• Access the Connect section. When you log in, you’ll notice the Connection tab in the top navigation of the Admin. Start by selecting the “Buttons and Links” option in that section.

• Select a button. The page shows the different branded “Buy Tickets” buttons we have available. Copy the HTML code for the button you want to use, and then you’ll need access to edit the code of your own site.

Paste the code into your site’s HTML to add the button to your page. The button will take them directly to your event page. Now, a colorful button will stand out on your page way more than a simple text link! 

• Add an event calendar. If you have multiple upcoming events, you can also display an Event Calendar on your website. After adding all your different events in the Events tab, you simply copy and paste the automatically generated HTML code that you can also add to your website!

Select Upcoming Event Widgets in the Connect section. Look at all those snazzy customization options! You can display dates, links, customize colors, add images and more.

Of course, once you save your changes, the embedded code will adjust to fit your new settings. If your customers cannot make the next event, you can advertise upcoming events that they will definitely need to check out!
