The navigation system is designed to cut to the chase and provide you easy access to the most used tools e.g event creation and analytics.
To create an event, simply click the ‘create event’ button in the navigation tab.
We understand events are not finalised during the thought process stage. Hence, we’ve minimised the steps in creating an event. To create your first draft simply enter the name and organiser, you can always edit it later.
Event type: This allows our users to browse their interests and makes your event more discoverable to the right audience. To change your event type simply select the option that best describes your event from the drop-down menu.
Creating a free and paid ticket type requires the same process. Click on the input field to access the ticket modal to enter the ticket name, description, price, quantity, when and how long they should go on sale.
NB: Once created tickets can only be edited on the analytics page.
The location and country allow us to suggest various events to our users, request rides and carry out localised event promotions so a good description would be beneficial.
Tags and Description is your best marketing tool when sharing your event on the internet. We use the tags for the subheading and a shortened description as the description tag on other social network’s meta tags (e.g Facebook, Twitter and Vivus).
To get a better understanding of your progress, ticket sales, where your audience is coming from and many more. The analytics page is the right person for the job.
The top section shows your ticket sales each month for the year and 6 sources of sales.
The bottom section gives you more insight into each event, campaign messages and sponsorship campaign, showing you gross ticket sales, revenue and views.
Insight: To get more insights on, edit or delete individual tickets, click on the number of tickets sold for the event. Editing an event is as simple as clicking on the edit button.
