Top Paid Digital Marketing Strategies For Venues, Festivals and Events

As your ticketing partner, we market the events we sell tickets for. Which makes sense because we're only successful if our clients' events are successful. And one of the top reasons people choose to sell tickets with Ticket Alternative and Freshtix is because we're proven to help you sell more tickets than with other providers.

Two Most Important Paid Digital Marketing Plans

There are two types of digital marketing strategies we recommend:

  1. Retargeting/Remarketing
  2. Prospecting

1. Retargeting

Retargeting campaigns (or remarketing campaigns as they're sometimes called) show ads to potential patrons who have visited one of your web properties or the ticketing website but who yet haven't purchased a ticket. In marketing terms, they haven't converted. Retargeting campaigns help convert those interested in your event to ticket buyers. They came to your website and checked out your event and might even have made it to the ticketing page, but for whatever reason didn't buy a ticket. Retargeting campaigns follow them around the web, displaying your ad to entice them to come back and complete their purchase. Once they convert, the campaign stops.

2. Prospecting

Prospecting campaigns are used to find people who could be interested in your event. There are several ways to accomplish this. 

  • Google Adwords - display your event/ad in search results when people look for your event or something similar. E.G. "beer festivals in Atlanta'
  • Display Ads - display an ad for your event on the websites people visit who might attend your event
  • Upload the email addresses of all of your past ticket buyers to Google and Facebook/Instagram and show them ads for your events
  • Upload the email addresses of all of your past ticket buyers to Google and Facebook/Instagram and tell the platform to find more people like them and show them ads for your events (lookalike audiences)
