For all event organizers, rookies or oldies, social media marketing is the one shot they HAVE to take. Come on, who doesn’t put up their upcoming event on Facebook? It’s the most obvious thing to do when you think of social media marketing. And that’s exactly why it’s a problem – it’s too obvious, which means, everyone else is doing it. If you have to ace this marketing strategy for your event, you have to upturn every little pebble you spot, and the least we can do is show you where the pebbles are. Now, that’s exactly where THE checklist comes into picture. Continue reading “Have THE Social Media Marketing Checklist Ready – Check!” »
We’ve had enough of the regular Facebook and Twitter, and it’s high time we realized there’s a lot more to social media marketing than just blue and blue birds.

Yapsody finally introduces the revolutionary Philippines based payment gateway – Dragonpay – that is all set to turn over new leaves that promise to blossom in the world of online payments.

The YapsodyScan App (or YapScan) was introduced for Android phones because we wished to extend our support to all our presenters and make ticket validation an easier process for them. Well, that was the plan, anyway. We, atYapsody, don’t think progress is made by flaunting what we’ve done. We also accept our flaws and rectify them, which led us to releasing this brand-new version of YapScan, your handy Ticket Scan App, redesigned for our presenters right from scratch!
WHAT IT DOES
Gone are the days of placing hefty, suited-up security guards at the entrances to validate your attendees. With the newYapScan update, you can easily validate your entrees by scanning QR codes, manually entering names or e-ticket numbers or using gestures to scroll through your list of attendees. Plus, all data is synced real-time between your device and Yapsody servers to prevent the same ticket from being used for multiple entries and to make sure that even last-minute sales are validated.
WHAT IT DOES, WELL, PART TWO!
YapScan is a big cardboard box filled with all these amazing candies
- Ticket validation by:
- Scanning QR codes printed on e-tickets.
- Manually entering names of attendees.
- Manually entering ticket numbers.
- Real-time syncing between your devices and Yapsody servers to make sure that
- No same ticket is used for multiple entries.
- Last-minute tickets are also validated.
- Easy viewing of attendance statistics right on your device.
- Allow every staff (with a separate login credential) the permission to validate tickets online on a person-to-person basis.
- The “unscanning” function can be allotted to a specific management staff by issuing separate permissions for the same.
- Scanning access for a specific event can be restricted on a person-to-person basis.
- If an event allows multiple entries, the number of scans/check-ins per ticket can be preset.
- You can set alerts for different types of tickets. For example, for adult tickets, your entry staff will be alerted to check IDs of attendees for age proof.
- The scan time for your staff can be preset.
- Offline Scanning, that is, all data pertaining to your event will be downloaded and saved to your device. So, even if your connection goes off, you can still continue scanning. Sync with the Yapsody servers will be restored the moment the connection is back on.
All of this aside, you know what the best part is? This box of candies is ABSOLUTELY FREE! And so are our General Admission events. So, sign up now and set up free online ticketing for your event! Happy Ticketing!
While Yapsody’s General Admission continues to let you enjoy many features for FREE, that you would otherwise be paying for if you were using other ticketing websites to sell tickets online, we thought we could try bewitching (pun intended) you by introducing the premium Reserved Seating Wizard. So get on those broomsticks as we fly you through the features of Reserved Seating, enchanting you all along, an exciting rebate offer hovering over your head like an impenetrable charm!
ADD RESERVED SECTIONS
With a single click of your mouse (quite similar to a flick of your wand), you can create rows and columns to simulate your reserved section, that is, you can have an interactive seating map for your event. For the same, you can:
- Add more rows and columns.
- Have the seat numbers auto-generated.
- Copy and paste.
- Have different colors for different types of seats. Continue reading “LET YOURSELF BE “CHARMED” BY YAPSODY’S RESERVED SEATING WIZARD” »
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!” »
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” »
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!” »
