1. Share your online ticket office
Your online ticket office
Online ticket sales benefit both party organisers and ticket buyers. NYE parties are so popular that participants who have not purchased their tickets before going to the party have to wait in line for a long time without any guarantee they will be able to get in. For organisers, the ability to track ticket sales in real time, starting several weeks before the day of the event, allows them to adjust their messaging and budgets if necessary.
Weezevent gives you the chance to add a ticketing module to your website in a simple and fast way. This will increase the exposure of your tickets and allow your participants to book their tickets directly from your site. You don’t have a website?

Sell tickets on Facebook
There are many ways to gain exposure and attract potential attendees to your ticket office on Facebook. You can start by adding access to your tickets to a Facebook page, but it is strongly recommended to create an event dedicated to your New Year’s Eve party. You will then be able to post your ticket office there.
Good to know: Whether you decide to use Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, the best thing is for your participants to communicate about your evening via their own social networks. This will increase your event’s exposure and transform your participants into ambassadors. With Weezevent, sharing buttons are available to each ticket buyer. This article details how this option works.
Your tickets on Instagram
Instagram does not allow URL links to be shared in a classic post. However, you can enter your ticket office’s URL in your profile’s bio. Since 2021, all accounts, even those with less than 10,000 followers, can share a link in each shared Story.
Good to know: Facebook and Instagram offer targeted advertising solutions for organisers who want to boost their events’ exposure with those most likely to attend.
Your tickets by email
Email is a traditional and effective way to communicate about your event. It is customary to send a newsletter to inform your contacts about the New Year’s Eve party you are organising. You can prepare reminders based on the amount of information you need to provide. The more interesting your content is, the more likely your emails will be read, appreciated, and will encourage recipients to book tickets for your New Year’s Eve party. If you have already organised similar parties, you should first target the lists of attendees from these events.
In addition, you can use your email signature as a communication method by adding a link to your Weezevent ticket office. Thus, for each communication, your recipient will be able to learn about your event and access the ticket office.

2. Selling the final tickets
You haven’t sold all your New Year’s Eve party tickets? Don’t worry, we’ll give you some tips on how to sell them, as some participants may come to your party without buying tickets in advance. For this purpose, Weezevent provides an on-site ticket office that can be accessed directly from your Weezevent interface.
We advise you to read this article explaining in detail how the on-site sales with the Weezevent ticket office works and what it is.
If this solution is not suitable for you, you can print out the remaining stock of tickets. Stock printing is taken into account in your event’s turnover as if the tickets had been purchased online at full value.
However, if you print more tickets than you sell, you can then delete the excess tickets. To do this, go to ATTENDEES > Manage attendees and delete the unsold tickets so that the information made available to you are up to date.
3. Manage access control
As soon as the party starts, you will have to check the tickets of each attendee. To do this, Weezevent offers several reliable and efficient access control solutions.
This control method means printing off physical lists to manually control visitors upon their arrival. Simple and effective, this solution is suitable for most low-traffic events.
This control solution works by downloading the WeezAccess app on your Apple or Android device and controlling the tickets by scanning the barcodes with the camera integrated into your device!
WeezAccess Pro is an access control device including a high-performance laser scanner. WeezAccess Pro mobile devices will allow you to manage access in complete safety and in all situations.
4. Manage your stocks
From your Weezevent interface, you can access the number of attendees from ATTENDEES > Manage attendees. You will be able to assess the needs in terms of drinks, food, etc. as well as special cross-selling orders (bottles of Champagne, VIP access, limousine rides, etc.).
5. Communicate with your guests
If you want to provide your attendees with some last-minute information, you can export their email addresses from the COMMUNICATE > Export emails tab. Then it is up to you to send them an email with the information you wish to communicate. You can also use our CRM, WeezTarget, to send emails to your participants effortlessly.
