A Quicket guide to building Exclusive events

Janet SharpEvent Planning, Everything, Marketing & Promotion, Quicket

Want to host an event that is strictly invite only? No problemo 😉 We definitely have a few solutions for you. (We also promise to never say “No problemo” again, well for as long as possible any way.) When an event is invite only, it’s not only important to create hype around it by involving the invitees as early as possible but it’s also important to keep things as secretive as possible while you drum up excitement. These types of events need to engender a sense of exclusivity to them especially as attendees tend to be treated like VIPs while at the event. Allow us a moment to show how we can assist in keeping your event on the down-low. Read More...

Setting up Mailchimp: A newbie event organiser’s account of how to engage with eventgoers

Dumama DumaEvent Tech, Everything, Marketing & Promotion, Music, Quicket

Good luck with that… As a new, independent event organiser, the biggest nightmare I’ve encountered has been connecting with people present at the event. Naturally, you want to connect with people attending your event, especially if you plan to run more events and want to keep people engaged and informed about future ones. On the day – however, I’ve found I’m always so busy making sure the sound, the food, the guest list, the team complementaries, the venue specs, the general logistics, as well as the unexpected thing that’s just come up… Read More...

Your golden ticket to a stress-free event

Elizabeth BreslinEvent Planning, Everything, Quicket

Simply adding some helpful details to your ticketing page will relieve both you and your ticket buyers, allowing both you and your attendees to have as stress-free an experience as possible.

Quicket is not only a self-managed platform for event organisers; but it’s also a place where ticket buyers are empowered with the ability to purchase tickets, edit ticket details, transfer and refund their tickets among other things. And all of this without ever needing to pick up the phone. With all these capabilities, however, we find there are a few queries and questions ticket buyers contact us about fairly frequently. And we know you probably get many of the same queries that we do. Read More...
