Your time is a scarce resource — and that’s an understatement. Whether you oversee one event a year or are responsible for several events each month, event managers are always one step away from burnout.
So when it comes to the most basic of event management tasks — getting your events live online — you can’t be slowed down by a repetitive, monotonous, or confusing process. You deserve a fast, easy way to create and manage events, and Eventbrite’s new event creation experience is designed to give it to you.
New to Eventbrite? The guided step-by-step process makes it simple to create and publish your first event listing.
Already a power user? Save precious time as you publish new events with a sleek and modern look designed to help you use the platform more effectively.
Here are three reasons to make the switch to simplify your event creation process this year.
1. You’ll save time setting up your event
Used to spending hours trying to understand new technology? That’s a problem. Technology should make your life easier and save you time, especially when it comes to repetitive tasks like setting up your event page.
You should be able to create an event from scratch in minutes. That’s why the new set-up process on Eventbrite is fully guided with step-by-step directions that will make you think that you have a product expert showing you the way. The improved sidebar navigation allows you to quickly find the features you need — and discover new ones to take your event to the next level. And if you host an event with complex ticketing requirements, the new ticketing workspace makes it stress-free to add, edit, and manage your ticket types.
Taking the guesswork out of the event creation experience gives you the time to focus on what you do best: putting on a great event.
2. You can access more tools to help you succeed
Take the stress out of your day with new features designed to simplify your event creation process. Here are a few of the new tools that you can use to do more, faster:
- Publish your event and begin to sell tickets while you are finalising the venue details with the “TBA” venue option. Don’t wait too long to fill out your venue information — sharing your venue early on helps to improve discoverability and event quality.
- Add, edit and manage your ticket options with ease and simplicity using the full-screen tickets interface.
- Easily view the details of your payout schedule, the total price attendees pay, and Eventbrite’s fees in the improved fee breakdown.
- Copy previous events quickly — without needing to update the on-sale dates of your new ticket — with the simple copying functionality.
Use these tools to make it easy to see your event information at a glance and make adjustments in an intuitive interface.
3. You’ll get the word out about your event
You may be wondering: “Okay that was quicker and easier, but I want to sell more tickets. Can I set up my event in a way to make that happen?”
You’re asking the right question.
The key to making your event more discoverable is search engine optimisation (SEO). Put simply, SEO is designing your event page to show up at the top of search results. Eventbrite’s new event creation experience helps you optimise your event listing for search with a new 140-character event summary.
This summary appears next to your event title on Google and in Eventbrite’s discovery and distribution platforms like Facebook. By pairing Eventbrite’s search engine prominence and your targeted event summary, your event is more likely to appear in front of interested event goers in your area.
