The hardest part of planning a reunion is getting people to purchase the tickets for your event. It’s very hard to plan a reunion, it’s impossible unless you know how many people will turn up. Could you imagine catering for 100 guests and then finding out that only 10 people turned up? Well I’ve done just that, and it’s very frustrating!
It’s extremely important to know how many people are coming to the events that you are planning as early as possible. Without this vital information you won’t know what size venue to book, what entertainment, and the amount of food that you should buy. Sure you could just guess how many people are going to turn up, but that’s like walking around a china shop blindfolded, it will no doubt end in disaster.
Anyway, why would you when you can follow our 5 amazingly simple tips.
1.Promotion All good businesses know that unless they promote their products nobody will know about them. How is your party any different? You need to tell everybody when it is, and generate loads of interest in the event. Why not create a website that you can use to post all the details of the event. If you’re cringing at the thought of designing a website there’s no need because there are reunion website builders that are capable of designing these websites without any skill at all.
2. Customer Service You should also make sure that everybody attending the event will be satisfied. What will happen if the event is cancelled? You should guarantee that they get all of their money back should the event be cancelled.
3. Special offers You want to know as soon as possible how many people are coming so that you can make plans. It’s an unfortunate part of human nature that we all leave everything until the last minute. You can use incentives to encourage people to decide earlier on, why not offer a discount for people that buy their tickets early.
4. Prize Draw As another incentive to get people to buy tickets, tell people that you will enter them into a prize draw if they order tickets before a certain date. You can decide what the free gift is, examples include free tickets, or a gift.
5. Payment Options People like many different options when paying for things, they don’t want to have to come down to see you and pay in person. You should allow them to send a check by mail, pay cash to you in person, and also accept credit cards.
It’s much more difficult to pay by check than it is by credit card, by enabling credit card transactions on your website you are making it much easier, and so there’s one less excuse for people to worry about!
You can also use this reunion website to tell everyone else who will be coming to the event, use the website to encourage people to talk about the reunion party.
