Increase Ticket Sales by Using Social Media

According to Pew Research Center, over 70% of Americans are currently using social media, so why not meet your fans where they already are? Here are a few tips to digitally promote events and drive ticket sales.

Keep Your Fans Posted on Twitter

Twitter is one of the best resources to share quick bits of information with your fans and community, like celebrating a game-winning touchdown, announcing a rain delay, or sharing your box office URL. Keep fans engaged by live tweeting the most important plays and use the retweet feature to share fan-created content. Want your tweets to reach an even bigger audience? Tag @HomeTownTix, and we might repost it!

Get Creative With Video

According to Sprout Social, 66% of social media users say short-form video is the most engaging type of social content. No need to worry about joining in the latest dance craze though- there are plenty of fun ways to promote events with video content.

One favorite example comes from the Pearl River Community College Baseball Team, who put their parody skills to use in an MLB spoof video. They were able to use their sense of humor to capitalize on a pop culture trend and, more importantly, share with their fans how to get tickets to their games.

Another amazing example video shows the Augustana University Viking mascot demonstrating how to get into an event with his digital HomeTown ticket. This creative take not only shared information with school spirit, but also didn’t require any spoken dialogue.
