Tip in a Pinch: Don't Go Retro Proactive Tips for Event Pros


Whether or not Mercury is in retrograde (it is), we know that stuff is gonna happen. That’s why we want to help you be ready for anything and everything when it comes to your events, and solve any ticketing problems before they start.

Here are a ✌️couple of ways to be proactively prepared for turbulent times, and always:

  • Get familiar: Our software is a bit like a magical bag - it just keeps giving everything. See all we have to offer by logging into Spark and checking out different event settings and features. From adding tickets and setting up sales start and stop times, to creating time-saving default settings, everything you need to organize and market your event can be found in our event management platform.
  • Practice makes perfect. The best way to learn something is to do it. One of the best things about HoldMyTicket is that our software is designed with you in mind. Its setup is meant to be intuitive and easy to use. It’s also hard to “break,” so it’s ok to explore different settings, tools or ways to set up your tickets - just be mindful about what you’re publishing! ? If you encounter any problems, relax knowing we’re here to help. Remember: It’s always better to figure out something during a practice run than in live time.
  • Ready your supplies: Whether you’re selling hard tickets or eTickets, events are all about getting tickets to your attendees. If you’re ordering tickets for your show, make sure you put in your order with enough time for our team to print and ship them to you from our offices in sunny Albuquerque, N.M. For eTickets, make sure fans know if you’re using delayed delivery and will be getting their tickets in the days leading up to your event. And most importantly, make sure you have enough equipment to get people in the door. Turn any phone into a scanner, or reach out to us a few weeks before your event to get everything you need sent your way.

We know you have a lot to do; that’s why between Spark, our event management app, and Swarm, our mobile box office, HoldMyTicket has a lot to offer. Work smarter, not harder by logging in and exploring all our time-saving tools and features now. If you have questions or requests for additional information and training, reach out to us.
