For decades, event ticketing for schools was a huge mess. Back in the 90’s schools would create hand drawn tickets and print them on a copy machine. I will neither confirm nor deny having a side hustle selling counterfeit tickets to homecoming and the senior all nighter. But that was soooooo easy. Somewhere along the way Steve O’Neill, CEO of Home Team Marketing and the TicketRoar team began opening up people’s eyes to the lost revenue and lost fundraising opportunities presented when schools didn’t have control of their ticketing.
Whether it’s football game tickets, dance tickets, after school event tickets, theater tickets, band concert tickets or any other scholastic ticket, TicketRoar is able to help students, event advisors and administrators manage their event tickets and maximize the earnings potential for any event imaginable. TicketRoar knows one thing and that’s scholastic ticketing and gate management.
Tickets for events can be big business and big fundraisers for school’s when done right. That’s why in 2016 TicketRoar partnered with Eventbrite to use some of the event giant’s software solutions to help streamline event ticketing for schools.
TicketRoar, powered by Eventbrite gives administrators access to these great features:
- Event management tools that track attendance and ticket sales to help facilitate financial accountability and address safety concerns.
- A mobile box office solution that centralizes ticket sales both pre-event and at the door/gate and accepts payment by credit card and cash.
- A suite of promotional tools provided by both Eventbrite and Home Team Marketing to help increase consumer awareness of events.
- Data around purchasing behavior to better inform marketing activities and operational decisions.
“High schools can now offer their fans and students the same online and mobile ticket conveniences of larger sporting events and concerts with little to no additional cost to the school.” O’Neill said of the partnership with Eventbrite.
