1. Embedding a Widget
You can embed a Peatix ticketing widget into your event web page or blog for people to purchase tickets straightaway!

It is simple to set up. You may customise it by size and colour, and also choose to display the ticket type and list of attendees. Once you’re happy with how it looks, all you need to do is to copy and paste the generated code onto the HTML of your site.

2. Leveraging Social Media

Talkers live on a diet of information. Keep them fed to keep them talking. The word of mouth stops when there is nothing to talk about.

-Andy Sernovitz, author of Word of Mouth marketing-

 

 

Social media makes a good word of mouth platform. Facebook alone has 1.15 billion users and Twitter has 500 million users. The potential reach via these mediums is massive.

Peatix provides two tools you could use to leverage upon these social media platforms.

 

  • Via the Peatix dashboard, you can create a Facebook event page in three minutes! All the information on the Peatix event page will also be seamlessly transferred to the Facebook event page. Having it on Facebook makes it easy for people to share and talk about your event.

  • Alternatively, in one click, you could give a quick shout-out to your fans on your Facebook page or Twitter account telling them about your upcoming awesome event that no one should miss out on.

    3. Sending out Email Invitations
    If you already have a mailing list, you could also send out an email invite via the Peatix dashboard. You could include a personalised message, preview it, and you’re now ready to send it out to the masses.
