5 REASONS TO BUY TICKETS ONLINE
By Ayooluwa Adewoye
Going to work early can be very tasking. The long drive from the house to the office is very tiring. It doesn’t get better because I have files to sort daily and proposals to write every month at the office. I don’t even have the luxury of time to look good. Work was beginning to take a toll on me and I needed to relax. I love comedy shows; I couldn’t refuse when a colleague at work invited me for one on the island. She got the tickets online during the week and the show was for Saturday. I had planned all week, rounded up work at the office and got ready for the weekend. We got to the hall entrance and all we had to do was provide evidence of payment on our phones. If I had gotten tickets handy, I would have misplaced it. However, here are 5 reasons to buy tickets online;
1. MONEY SAVING
Buying tickets online gives the advantage of bonuses, discounts and loyalty programs. All these are money-saving offers that can be given to online buyers. I once got 50 percent off a ticket for the first 100 buyers of a show I once attended.
2. POSSIBILITY TO BUY VARIOUS TICKETS AT ONCE
What happens when you have two events clashing and you have to get tickets for two? I attend two events or more at times because purchasing the tickets is stress- free. Online purchase of tickets is a platform that helps you purchase two or more tickets at once without moving from one location to another. You can get tickets for concerts and comedy shows at once.
3. AVAILABLE PRE-BOOK OF TICKETS
Tickets can be booked ahead of time. It encourages an early purchase and helps get tickets ready before it becomes sold out. Before a buyer who wants tickets handy gets to the venue of purchase, about a 100 or more tickets would have been sold online. On getting to the venue, people were struggling to get tickets. This is something that could have been done online. It also helps you know when tickets are sold out.
4. CONSTANT NOTIFICATION ABOUT OTHER RELEVANT EVENTS
Buying tickets online provides registration on relevant websites on which you can get constant notifications about current and new activities, shows and exhibitions. All I have to do is to check my notification posts for shows I would love to attend. I can always choose which event to attend out of several options.
5. ORIGINAL TICKETS
With this platform, you can be sure you are buying from the source. It helps you get tickets directly from the organizers of the show. I attended an event where I met a lady outside the hall. She had been denied access due to a fake ticket for a table. Online ticketing can’t be misplaced, it’s always documented and safe. I always buy my tickets online to ensure its genuine. Trust me, you won’t want to be embarrassed for showing up at an event with a fake ticket.
Shows, concerts and exhibitions are events that require the use of tickets. It’s up to you to choose to stay away from things that would not make you enjoy what you paid for. With the use of online ticketing, you are guaranteed to have a positive experience at these events plus benefits.
