1) How To Sell More Tickets Earlier

TICKET SALE INCENTIVES- Some people may think “hhhhmmm incentives, does this mean I have to dip into my profits?” the answer is YES! $50 will not make or break your social. After having your friends, family members and wedding party bust their asses to sell tickets, they purchase their own tickets, buy drinks and prize tickets it all adds up. Let see how we can show a little appreciation but at the same time increase our ticket sales.
Most people will put a list of names and phone #’s on Facebook and that’s it, if you want your people to really sell tickets then give them some incentive/ Prize

Have a mini competition between members of your wedding party, family and friends. Each person is give the same # of tickets to sell and the person who sell the most tickets either gets free entry to the event or win a prize of your choice or any other twist you want to put to it just to keep it fun and entertaining while promoting healthy competition. I would say the winner will receive 15 free drink tickets at the social (now thats what I call incentive) and it will honestly only cost you $45 assuming you’re selling your drinks for $3.00 each and even then your actual cost is closer to just under $2 each. Or give them Silent Auction Tickets and this does cost you anything at all.

Public recognition or bragging rights will make that person feel on top of the world. Have your DJ announce the winner of the contest just around the same time as the silent auction.

2) ATTENDANCE INCENTIVE – Most guest come to a social late because there s not much happening there and to be honest they also pre-drink at home before coming out. How can we get them there early so that (A) you can have a better crowd to begin with and (B) make more bar sales earlier? Have an attraction that will pull them there early, some people might do an early draw for prizes or texas Mickey which can work but it is too predictable. We have tried T.V. Game shows in the style of Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, Minute to Win it & Family Feud and it has pulled quite a bit of people. It’s advertised on the tickets so everyone who buys a ticket knows and with a start time of 9 pm that give everyone 1 hour to get there and grab seat to enjoy the “pre show entertainment. visit our website or call us to setup a meeting to discuss how our game shows can get your guests there earlier.

3) TICKET PRICES. Most people are used to $10 for a social ticket but to be honest its been 1$0 for the past 20 years. Everything else has gone up, gas, cost of living, food costs etc I think $15 for a social ticket is fine however don’t just spring it on the people who may show up at the door to get tickets because thats when they get thrown for a loop, as they had already come with a pre-determined amount of money. Some people may say well what are we getting for that? to justify the price you can either add extra entertainment i.e. a Game Show or a Hot lunch i.e. hot dogs, noodles etc which will be a fraction of what you will make on the higher ticket sales. We had one couple who gave 1 free drink with every ticket and all the guest had to do was rip off the perforated section and claim it at the bar. By just raising the ticket to $15 you increase your profit by 50%. Now thats a way to make more money at your social. You will come across those who will complain but eventually they come around, especially since more and more people are charging $15

Social Tip #4 Compliments of Summer Bounce Entertainment.

What’s in a Theme- More than you’d know.

 

Most adults don’t get a chance to dress up but I can tell you that when they do. They love it! Having a theme at your event will help set the mood for the night, a good DJ should be able program the music to go with your theme and also be able to play the classic and current music.

Theme’s can be based around the time or year/ holiday e.g. St Patricks/ St Paddy’s but don’t just stop there, especially if you are playing on a popular theme you need to expand on it to have people come to your social instead of any of the other 100 happening that night. A simple twist can be  St. Paddy’s “Wear green” or Halloween “Zombie theme”
Or you can go all out. 80’s theme “Spandex VS Rocker” and watch your guests take sides and really get into it.

Not everyone enjoys dressing up so don’t make it mandatory but don’t put “Costume optional” on your tickets either or your guests will use that as an escape out of dressing up. Theme socials generally do very well

 

YOUR TICKETS MUST SCREAM YOUR THEME!

Most DJ companies provide tickets that are simple business card size, there’s nothing wrong with this but I’d recommend getting tickets that makes your social look like an event. see a sample of our tickets on our website. We also send you a proof before they are printed and you don’t have to write numbers on any of them because they come sequentially printed and are perforated for ease of tearing.

If your tickets show you theme well it will do some of the selling for you.
You can also have a vague theme which leaves room for your guest creativity e.g. Easter Bunnies and Hunnies. Most people think of the lady being the bunny but then you throw in bunny and now the guy can be the bunny etc etc
*Popular themes include but a not limited to : Beach Party ” Caribbean Style Mon!” ,  Halloween Super Hero’s VS Villains , Christmas Red and White/ Ugly Sweater Social,  St Patrick’s Green party, 80’s  Neon Glow party etc *

oh one more question. if you’re having a theme will the DJ dress in theme? Our DJ’s enjoy dressing in theme, it helps to keep the party energy going when your guests see that the DJ is enjoying himself as well

Ask us about many of the themes we offer* with costumes you can have an extra door prize for best costume.
