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

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

Finding time to engage with event-goers at the event? 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...

So you want to run an event at school?

James BosenbergCharity & Causes, Event Planning, Event Tech, Everything, Family & Education, Quicket

You need complete control to run a successful, amazing school event.

There’s a new-school of thought behind school events. If you’ve run school events, you’ll know how much time and admin it takes, what with dealing with nit-picky parents, finding ways to track who has paid for what, how they paid, if you remembered to give them their tickets and whether the cool kids will be there. The best solution, we’ve found, is to make sure to store all the event information in one place, and of course, for you to not have to collect the money yourself. You’re throwing an event not looking to get into debt collection ;). Read More...

Organiser pages: why you should use them and how they work

Roxanne ArmstrongEvent Tech, Everything, Quicket

Use an Organiser page to keep all your events together.

Your Organiser page is the answer to the event questions you may not even have thought to ask yet! What is an Organiser page, we hear you ask? (See there’s another one of those questions you haven’t even thought of yet.) Well, think of it as the perfect “Home” for all your events. It’s the one-stop URL that you can forward on in order to show potential ticket buyers all the current events you are selling tickets for, any past events that you have run, as well as providing you with a platform to highlight some insightful information about your brand. It’s like your very own little website. Sounds pretty excellent, doesn’t it? Read More...
