We’ve added an even newer version of the “Eventbrite for Pages” Facebook application. Check out the newest way to sell tickets on Facebook on the Partnership page – or try it out directly here (it’s free to use)!
**End of Update**
Recently our friends at AppBistro launched a new Facebook application that enables organizers to embed their ticket sales directly into their own Facebook Pages. This now allows anyone to make ticket sales more readily attainable for their loyal Facebook following and provides another landing page for successful conversion to their event.
The setup is very easy and can be accessed through this link: http://apps.facebook.com/eventbritetab. Simply ‘Allow’ for the connection when you are logged into your Facebook Page account, then use your Eventbrite User ID and Password to integrate the two. From here, you’ll be able to select any live event from your Eventbrite account using a drop down menu. Instantaneously your Event Title, Ticket/Registration Options, Event Details, When, and Where will all patch over directly to your Facebook Page.
Many organizers utilize Facebook as their largest medium to keeping in direct contact with their network. Giving friends and fans this option when they check your page is a sticky feature which helps quantify your marketing efforts.
An upcoming event, Breckenridge Beer Festival (pictured above), has executed this wonderfully to drive more sales and increase overall awareness that tickets are now available. Take a full look:
As you will see, there is a tab directly beneath their logo labeled ‘Tickets’ and this tool pulls all your Eventbrite information directly onto your own Facebook Page for the same painless checkout process.
Eventbrite For Pages is another great benefit in keeping your ticket purchasing process uniform with the branding of your event. No longer must organizers redirect potential attendees away from their website, as Eventbrite provides different tools to acquire tickets from organizers’ own websites.
