How do my fans buy tickets?
We always offer you the opportunity to sell advance tickets to our shows. Specifically, there are two methods of advanced ticket sales available to you on every show you book. We encourage you to use whatever works best for you, whether it be only one of the options, or a combination of both methods. More information on each ticket method is listed below.
#1. AFTON ONLINE TICKETING – www.AftonShows.com
Fans have the option to go online to purchase tickets for your show through your unique Ticketing Profile URL page or through our www.AftonShows.com site. Through our online site your fans experience will be just as quick, secure, and easy as it is anytime they use a major ticketing outlet like Ticket Master, Live Nation, eTix, etc. We use one of the biggest 3rd party credit card processors in the U.S (Authorize.net) so that every purchase is secure. If you have a decent sized fan base, and a strong web/Facebook presence, you can easily get advance tickets sold with minimal effort. This is also a great option for fans that you don’t see on a regular basis, or who don’t live near you but would like to support you and attend your show.
#2. PHYSICAL “PRE-SALE” TICKETS
In addition to Online Ticketing, you also will have the option to use the more traditional method of pre-selling physical paper tickets directly to your fans, in person for cash. This option is a good supplement for fans that can’t buy online for whatever reason.
For our shows Advance tickets are always cheaper than the door admission price, and it should be simple and easy to get advance tickets sold to your fans between these two methods!
Data Analysis Shows the Power of Advance Tickets!
We have collected extensive data while booking over 60,000 local acts on over 9,500 concerts since 2004. Without fail, we have seen that some form of advance tickets as a part of your promotion strategy will always yield a larger draw. This is why we have optimized both forms of advance tickets to be as easy as possible for you and your fans. We firmly believe that there is no point in spending your time and money on promoting your shows, if no one shows up. This is why we give huge discounts to fans for buying advance tickets early (promo code discounts) and why we encourage your fans to TIP you when they buy tickets online.
Early Purchase Promo Codes Can Save Fans Money!
We offer “Early Purchase Promo Code” discounts to your fans on advance tickets. Once you confirm a show, you are sent a Promo Code discount that you can send to your fans. This way your fans can actually get into our shows for 20% to 50% off the Door Price! The Promo Codes we offer allows fans on a tight budget to still attend. Normally the Early Purchase Promo Code Discounts are $2 to $3 off the already lowered advance Ticket price!
Fans Can “Tip” You During Online Ticket Purchase!
We offer a fan Tip feature when your fans buy online tickets for your show. You get 100% of the fan tip, we keep none of your tips. The average fan tips $1.20, so by using our online system, we help you make even more money when fans buy online!
