Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video What is Eventbrite?, part of Up and Running with Eventbrite.
Eventbrite is a website event management service. In minutes, you can organize your event, sell tickets, and manage registration for all kinds of events. And when I say events, you can use Eventbrite for fundraising, house parties, any sort of musical performance or a concert. If you can think of an event, you can use Eventbrite for it. How about a conference or a training workshop? Here's how it works. Through the Eventbrite website, you create a single point of entry landing page for your event.
From there, you can start selling tickets while Eventbrite collects registration information. You can even add extra items besides tickets, like merchandise, at the time of purchase. Participants can even purchase tickets to your event directly through Eventbrite. Though it's important to note that you can have a free event, and there's no fees to it when you have a free event. It's only when you collect money through sales, that you'll get charged by Eventbrite. They charge a service percentage fee of 2.5% plus a $0.99 per ticket fee.
There's also 3% credit card processing fee. If you go to eventbrite.com/fees you can get up-to-date pricing plus some examples of how their pricing structure works. In addition to selling tickets, I'll show you how to use Eventbrite to promote your event. And finally, when it's the big day, you can see exactly who's coming and even check them in at the door.
