The day that many of our customers have been waiting for is finally here: You can now sell tickets directly from your organization’s website without sending patrons to a separate SimpleTix page.
The new embeddable widget has a simple, clean design and is fully integrated into your website without any third party branding. There’s nothing to distract users from purchasing tickets.
Sites like Eventbrite, TicketWeb, and Brown Paper Tickets all require buyers to go to a separate page. The more clicks someone has to make, the less likely they are to convert to ticket buyers.
How it works
Draken Harald Hårfagre, which describes itself as “the world’s largest viking ship sailing in modern times,” uses this feature to sell tickets for its East Coast Tour 2018 directly from its website. This event provides an engaging look at the modern-day Viking spirit. Patrons can tour the ship, interact with the crew, explore the free photo and video exhibition, and more.
The tour has stops throughout New England and the mid-Atlantic. In total, it will visit 14 locations from Maine to South Carolina through mid-October. As the boat reaches a new destination, tickets for tours and lectures become available through the SimpleTix embeddable widget.
Patrons simply need to select what type of ticket they want (lecture, deck tour, or screening), then select the date and time they would like to attend and proceed through the checkout process. All of this happens trough the organization’s website — even entering a credit card and completing the sale. The convenience factor is huge, especially for people who are buying tickets on their phones.
The SimpleTix embeddable widget can work on just about any website and with just about any event in SimpleTix. It’s a small change in your process that can make a big impact when it comes to sales and customer retention.
