With the right timing and a little knowhow, advance sale promotional codes for event ticketing can put a steady stream of revenue in your pocket months before your event begins. As setup manager at a top online ticketing company, I have worked with hundreds of show producers over the past decade and have seen the exciting direction promotional code marketing has taken in recent years. Here are 5 tips event producers can use to improve event ticketing sales through promotional code discounts.
1.Know Your Tools
Promotional codes (also known as promo codes or coupon codes) trigger a price discount on selected tickets when entered during an order; understanding how, when and where to set these codes up will influence your overall effectiveness.
Its critical to have the ability to create your own promo codes, at any time. A good online ticketing provider should have these tools built into a system that is user friendly and intuitive, enabling you to maximize marketing efforts as the opportunities arise.
Using the reporting features within your system to monitor the usage of a specific code and the total revenue it generates is also essential. By having access to this information, you can fine tune your marketing, even while your event is taking place.
Be sure to request training from your online ticketing support team or web developer if you are unclear on how to use the promotional code tools within your system.
2.Use the Media & Track your Results
Promotional codes were made for the media! A promo code can be assigned to a specific print ad, commercial, radio spot, or partner website. Promo codes in the media can be exceptional at reeling in pre-sales and measuring your success with the networks, stations or publications you invest in.
A catchy advertisement with your web address clearly stated, accompanied by a simple promo code, is sure to maximize results. Create codes that are easy to remember; use the TV or radio stations call sign or choose a simple word that is related to the campaign. Words are easier to remember than numbers. Most media ad campaigns are launched at least one month prior to the event and should be more aggressive at least two weeks out.
3.Phase out Paper Coupons & Build a Bigger Database
Many of our clients have gradually replaced their paper coupons in favor of online promotional codes. They run similar print ads but replace the clip-able coupon area with a clear referral to their website along with the promotional code. This will motivate the customer to buy online and receive the best available price while eliminating any hassles associated with redeeming paper coupons.
By moving more people online, show producers build a stronger database for future marketing campaigns. This is valuable data including name, email, address and more, which could not be captured from a customer using cash at the door with a paper coupon.
4.Consider Deeper Discounts Earlier
Most ticket sales reports show a natural bell curve as opening day approaches because most people tend to buy online at the last minute. An early start on your promotional code campaign can help balance out this phenomenon putting more revenue in your pocket weeks before your event.
It is best to start your deepest discounts as early as possible and gradually minimize the savings as your event nears. Frequency plays a large role in the success of an early campaign. Having a consistent rollout of codes released at carefully planned dates and times will keep you on the minds of your faithful followers.
Organized promo code management is essential to aligning your codes with an early marketing campaign. Seek tools which give you direct access to create and manage your own promo codes with options to set expiration dates and usage limits. Try running one day promotions with the message, Only 100 codes available, order now! or Order now, offer expires this Friday at 11:59PM!
5.Social Networking & Newsletters – Get Your Message Read
Many show producers are seeing the positive impact social networking and newsletter communication can have on their events popularity. For those with limited marketing budgets, these are essential.
Since promotional codes are easily posted, emailed and distributed with relatively no cost, they lend themselves well to the social networking audience. Hit your social networking markets as soon as your tickets go on sale. Try targeting certain groups such as friends, fans, followers and last years attendees, giving them the first opportunity to save and rewarding them for their loyalty.
Post a special discount link on your event page or use the bulletin features to get the word out. Messaging such as, Use this code before its too late! and $5 off for our loyal followers who buy before August 1st are great ways to encourage sales.
An email announcement should also be sent once you begin selling tickets online. Customers will be more likely to open your email and make an order if your title includes discount messaging such as, Tickets on Sale Now, Advance Discount Code Inside! Be sure to make your email short and easy to read, with clickable links that drive them directly to your online ticketing page. Options for links which have the promo code prefilled streamline the process and help track your campaigns.

Digital video cameras continue to be as popular as ever. As they become more technologically sophisticated they’re offering better quality and more functions in ever smaller packages. Top-of-the-range, high definition videocams can cost in excess of $3000 to buy. This figure would be even higher if existing mechanisms, which allow HD videos to be recorded on a conventional DV tape, couldn not be used.
It’s hardly surprising, then, that digital video camera rental is fast becoming the preferred option for digital videocam users who only need to use the equipment for special occasions. With improvements in the technology moving fast, so fast that chances are a new model will already have been superseded by something better within six months, the trend to rent and not to buy seems set to continue.
As an irregular user, looking to take pictures at weddings or on holiday, constantly upgrading your digital videocam is neither a practical, nor cost-effective solution. Why not, then, get the best of both worlds the latest models and the lowest prices by choosing the rental option? Your biggest worry will be to pre-book well in advance at busy times of the year, like Christmas and New Year or Thanksgiving, to avoid disappointment. Look in the Yellow Pages or login to the internet, and you’ll find there are some great deals to be had out there.
Great offers are available if you shop around. At Christmas and New Year, especially, extended and weekend rental bargains are to be had provided, as we’ve said, you book early. Throughout the year, even, many digital video camera rental outlets will offer an extra free rental day, and, at short notice, many shops will pull together a video camera package at very competitive prices.
The basic rental package, usually comprises spare batteries, charger, camcorder case, manufacturer’s manual and a quick-start guide. Ease of use varies with the model, but the Get Started guide you should receive as part of the package will outline use of the main controls of On/Off, record and zoom buttons. A manual should also be supplied should you feel like exploring more options in detail.
Alternatively, as an infrequent user of digital camcorders, you will find that many rental outlets offer a photo printing or video transfer service, copying your film on to CD or DVD. Again, shop around for the best deals if you’re interested in a complete service. Even with this service charge added to the hire cost, on any cost-benefit analysis you’ll be getting a great deal.
Besides the basic package, optional extras are available. Accessories, such as tripods, external microphones and camcorder lights, though, are not seen as optional extras for many users who want to shoot that perfect picture for the perfect occasion. You will pay an extra hire charge for these items, as you will for video tapes and mini-DVD-Rs. The software to download your photos on to your PC will usually be included in the hire package, though. This software is very popular now and has largely replaced still photos on memory cards. Rent and you’ll get the best for less.
Having decided that digital video camera rental is for you, the most important question to ask yourself before you proceed any further is: what do I want from a digital camcorder? Do I want a cheaper, standard format videocam, or would I prefer a high definition video?
Standard models use compact, 60-minute tapes, and can be plugged into the camcorder/playstation inputs on the front of many TVs and video recorders. The playback quality is very good. As a rule of thumb with standard models, the smaller the camera the fewer features it has. You want a larger optical zoom? Then you’ll need to hire one of the slightly larger cameras. Even so, none is that big and all are easy to use for the novice.
But are you more technically-minded? If so, then an HD videocam, offering superb playback quality with four times the number of pixels as standard definition, would allow you to shoot a video of a wedding and edit the video on HDV. Be aware, though, that a very powerful PC is required to use video editing packages. The HDV footage can then be recorded on to a high definition DVD player with marvellous results.
Europe lags behind the U.S. where we have been able to enjoy high definition TV, and watch content from most of the major networks, for a number of years. Familiarity with the superb picture quality afforded by HD breeds contempt among aficionados for standard models. Renting a videocam allows the technically-minded to practise more demanding techniques and to produce top-class pictures without the substantial outlay involved in buying a top-notch videocam. And remember: as a perfectionist, you’ll need accessories, too, which makes renting an even more attractive option.
So, novice or enthusiast, renting the equipment makes the best sense. The videocam’s obsolescence, driven by continual improvements in technology, requires constant and expensive upgrading. The very high cost of buying top-of-the-range videocams, together with the easy availability of great-deal packages, including accessories, all make compelling reasons for renting and not buying.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so they say. Well, not quite, but it will have been worth reading a few hundred if you’re now sold on the benefits of digital video camera rental.
