Dec 2016–When it comes to ticketing for your high school football games, NOW is the time to start setting it up for next season.
Why so soon?
So you will have all the ticketing in place well before you need it.
Here are some things that eReserve Ticketing can help to put in place:
1) Establishing the inventory of general seats offered
2) Mapping out the reserved seating chart, both Home and Visitor sides
3) Determining the type/number of scanners and printers needed (if you choose to scan)
4) Ordering equipment and ticket stock
5) Training staff (this is critical for best practices)
6) Testing card scanners and wifi availability
7) Selling Season Tickets
It is best to have everything in place for selling those season tickets as early as spring. The first season requires some setup (which we will help you do), but once in place, your season ticket holders can go online and renew or change their reservations by themselves. Just imagine how convenient that will be for them and how it will free up your staff’s time from having to handle all those phone calls and office visits.
8) Informing the public
Most important, the earlier you look at this, the earlier you can start on an often overlooked component of any change in the way of doing things–letting the public know! Ticketing upgrades work most smoothly when you get the word out to the public. Other schools have success with press releases, school newsletters and bulletins, notices on web sites, etc. One school used a billboard to announce ticket sales, to great success!
Don’t worry. That sounds like a lot to do, but we will be with you every step of the way, guiding and training your team to make sure everything is in place. All you’ll need to do is cheer on your team!
Another benefit of using eReserve Ticketing is that we provide schools 3 ways to generate revenue for your programs: 1) ads on tickets, 2) links on checkout pages, 3) online “store” to sell spirit items, even donations. The longer lead time you build in, the more time your booster clubs have to solicit businesses to take advantage of this opportunity.
P.S. Not just football
Of course all those reasons we give for football also apply to every other sport and program, from fine arts to proms and galas. The earlier you start, the better the results.
