I hear it all the time in my travels visiting large and small venues across North America: from sports arenas to non-profit theatres, venues just do not have enough time and labor resources to provide the customer service they wish they could. Budgets are tight and labor costs continue to rise, resulting in leaner box office operations and often, stressed out staff. The solution in the past has been to either reduce box office hours or cut back on staff, but there’s a third option: to extend your ticketing operations with a white label call center. Read on to discover three ways that partnering with a white label call center can benefit your venue.
A client seminar is a great opportunity to learn from industry experts. Attendees have the chance to participate in sessions that focus on specific educational topics, ask questions and share ideas with other attendees. Most client seminars act as an intensive training camp that usually take place over the course of several days. From interactive time with a new product to open discussions, multiple speakers and teachers take the time to share their perspectives and helpful hints related to the topics at hand. Attending a client seminar provides many benefits, including improving communication skills, gaining expert knowledge, and renewing motivation and confidence.

Read on to discover new ideas for using scarcity in your marketing promotions so you can sell more tickets, increase revenue and reach new audiences.

With a digital reinvention of your third-party live ticket sales, you might wonder what you’ll do with your new-found time when your institution stops selling ticket vouchers. Below are some ideas.
