Why are more and more event planners switching from household names like Ticketmaster, and Eventbrite to white label ticketing platforms?
Well, in this day and age your brand is everything. It's the differentiator between you and your competitors.
The times of old-fashioned non-customisable ticket shops are long over. It's no surprise that people are looking for alternatives to previously fragmented ticketing software.
And this is where white label ticketing software comes in.
White label ticketing offers a chance to command brand loyalty, set your own prices and get all the benefits of our world-class ticketing platform.
Let's dive deeper into the world of white label ticketing, and how event organisers can benefit from full control of their ticket shops.
A white label ticketing system is a platform that allows you to sell tickets under your own brand name, rather than the name of the ticketing company. This can give your event a more professional look and feel, as well as helping you to build your brand.
The benefits of using white label ticketing for your event
There are lots of other benefits of using a white label ticketing platform too. Here are just a few:
You’ll have more control over your branding and marketing
You can offer a better customer experience
You can sell tickets directly from your own website
You’ll have more flexible pricing options
You can upsell and cross-sell other products and services
You can access detailed data and analytics about your event
The obvious benefits, such as increased customisation, are significant. However, less-known advantages include the fact that white label ticketing software allows you to regain control of the entire sales process.
Without the ticketing provider pushing their own agenda, you can start to boost your bottom line. You're able to set your own fee structure, own your customer relationships, and keep sales in-house.
With full control over your pricing options, you can better reflect your event's value to customers. And because you'll have access to detailed data and analytics about your event, you can make more informed decisions about how to market and sell tickets for future events.
If you've ever wondered who really uses white label ticketing software, the answer may surprise you. While white label ticketing is often associated with big businesses, the truth is that this type of platform can be used by businesses of all sizes.
1. Events with an established brand
The first example is as you would expect. Event organisers who have outgrown plug and play platforms like Ticketmaster, Eventbrite or Skiddle usually turn to a white label ticketing system.
A white label ticketing platform gives them a chance to leverage the brand they have built, without being hindered by the restrictions of a third-party ticketing provider.
Switching to proven event ticketing software saves these companies time and money compared to building a fresh system from the ground up.
2. Businesses with complimentary services
The flip side to this is companies who may already offer similar services but want to branch out into the events industry.
For them, white label ticketing software provides an opportunity to quickly get a business up and running without having to worry about developing their own technology. They're able to cross-sell to their existing audience and introduce a brand new revenue stream.
For example, an event management company could introduce ticketing as a service to their existing clients. This would give them a way to cultivate their existing audience, earn new revenues and offer a more comprehensive service to their clients.
3. White label ticket resellers
The third, and final, users of a white label ticketing platform are entrepreneurs. These are sole traders, who want to start their own ticketing company without having to invest in developing their own technology.
We call these white label ticket resellers.
These are organisations that want to start their own ticketing company but don't want to develop their own technology.
Unlike the previous examples a white label ticket reseller doesn't sell their own tickets; instead, they operate a platform on which others may sell theirs. The tickets are usually sold under the name of the white label ticket reseller, rather than the company that is hosting the event.
This allows the white label ticket reseller to take advantage of its marketing power and reach a wider audience. White label ticket resellers often work with multiple companies, allowing them to offer a variety of events and tickets to their customers. This could be anything from a sole trader to a small-scale business.
There are many benefits to becoming a white label ticket reseller:
You can start your own ticketing company without having to develop your own technology
You don't have to worry about the cost and maintenance of developing the technology
You can focus on marketing and selling tickets, rather than building technology
You can offer a branded ticketing experience to your customers
You can benefit from the features and updates that we release regularly
If you’re interested in using white label ticketing for your event, the first step is to find a reputable ticketing company that offers this service. Make sure to do your research and read reviews before you make your choice.
Typical ticketing companies have a habit of pushing their own logo or limiting your creativity - but that’s not our style.
