BOX OFFICE TO FIT IN YOUR PALM? ‘POS’SIBLE!

BOX OFFICE TO FIT IN YOUR PALM? ‘POS’SIBLE!

BOX OFFICE TO FIT IN YOUR PALM? ‘POS’SIBLE!

You must be wondering how a professional blog post could have such a hideous title that amounts to absolute nonsense, but with the release of Yapsody’s Point-Of-Sale (or POS, as we call it) app, we’ve realized that nothing in the world of online ticketing is im-POS-sible for Yapsody. We intend to justify ourselves by tracing the need of this app in the first place. Continue reading “BOX OFFICE TO FIT IN YOUR PALM? ‘POS’SIBLE!” »

EVENTS ENGINEERING – TECH TIDBITS ABOUT PLANNING AN EVENT

A few years back in time, event organizers were usually people who were distinctly spotted in the middle of a mayhem carrying bundles of documents, bills and checklists stuffed hastily in mismatched folders, yelling instructions to their team as their hair shot out of maintenance pretty awkwardly under the band of a lopsided headphone with a mic. Now, however, technology has chilled these species out so much it is difficult to really figure out who is the planner, really! Learn how to squirm your way into this chilled out species by using technology for event planning:

WORK OUT THE SOCIAL MEDIA

When it comes to the internet, even the sky isn’t a limit. Social media is a superlatively effective and cheap medium for event promotion and marketing. You first need to be well aware of the social media hubs of your target audience. While Facebook is used virtually by everyone, Google+ and Twitter are places you’ll find most professionals. Tumblr, Instagram, and Pinterest are places you should resort to if you wish to create a rather colorful buzz. Continue reading “EVENTS ENGINEERING – TECH TIDBITS ABOUT PLANNING AN EVENT” »

EVENT PROMOTION – STOP FIDGETING, START WIDGETING!

EVENT PROMOTION – STOP FIDGETING, START WIDGETING!

WHY?

We realized it was high time you stopped experimenting with useless techniques to promote your event on Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, WordPress, and virtually every other social media platform that you can think of. Honestly, having a ten-line instruction set to guide your audience to your online ticket store is definitely not working because nowadays, people don’t even read their medical reports that sincerely. It doesn’t matter how rich or witty your content is – if it’s not a click away, it’s no good, anyway! To overcome this major blunder, Yapsody decided to come up with Widgets to make social media promotion a lot easier. Continue reading “EVENT PROMOTION – STOP FIDGETING, START WIDGETING!” »

FORMULA FUNDRAISER – EQUATING THE NINE VARIABLES OF PLANNING A FUNDRAISING EVENT

PLANNING A FUNDRAISING EVENT

PLANNING A FUNDRAISING EVENT

Whenever people hear the word “business”, they are often struck by the idea of black-n-white dealings & profit-n-loss statements. Basically, every part of business seems to be satisfying an equation. Even the one that’s allegedly a “risk” is actually working on probability equations. Fundraisers, on the other hand, have a softer edge and appear to be the only business arena where equations can’t be trusted. However, we seek to prove otherwise by enlightening you about the NINE IMPORTANT VARIABLES of fundraisers and how to handle them when it comes to event planning.

VARIABLE ONE: THE MOTTO

Decide upon the purpose (or purposes) of the fundraiser – whether it’s only meant to be a charity event to raise money for a community or an NGO, or it is also supposed to raise awareness of any kind, or is simply a way of reaching out to people to make them notice and feel connected to your brand. This helps you get a better perspective of everything that your event should involve. Continue reading “FORMULA FUNDRAISER – EQUATING THE NINE VARIABLES OF PLANNING A FUNDRAISING EVENT” »

EFFECTIVE ONLINE TICKETING FOR EVERY EVENT

“Mr. Retailer” lets out another sigh of despair as one more unsatisfied customer walks out of his gadget store; meanwhile, an online store sells another hundred smartphones in under an hour during its flash sale. While the retail stores are struggling to dodge the bumps on the roads, online markets are breaking a leg at the highest peak of Mt. Everest. So why do some presenters still rely upon the conventional ticketing strategies for their events? If you are one of those presenters, then here are all the right reasons why you should immediately switch to online ticketing for planning your event effectively:

EVENT PROMOTION USING SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING

All kinds of events – from birthday parties to fundraisers, from concerts to karaoke nights – can be regarded as fruit bearing trees. You plant the idea, you nurture the tree by defining each and every bit of the event, and lastly, you call people in to enjoy the fruits. But there are these major questions that haunt the mind of many event planners – How do I tell people about my tree? Basically, how do I go about promoting my event? And this question has a three-word answer – Social Media Marketing. This post is aimed at guiding all you event newbies (and perhaps even oldies) about how you can use the social media to an optimum level for marketing your events.

#HASHTAGS!

Create a customized hashtag for your event and inject it into your event content wherever you post it. Be it a Twitter tweet, a Facebook page, a Tumblr blog, or a YouTube channel, you need to make your hashtag viral. Make sure your hashtag is sensible, witty and crisp because sometimes, hashtags can be a complete disaster. For instance, Susan Boyle’s album had a release party with the hashtag #susanalbumparty. Pretty grossed out, eh?
