Halloween is just around the corner. 

If you’ve got an event coming up, why not list with Skiddle? The Promotion Centre has several tools that can make the planning process much easier. 

From entry solutions to efficient workflow, our software can make planning events a little less scary this October.

Get attendees through the door with RapidScan

Looking for an entry solution? Why not use RapidScan? 

It’s free to download on iOS and Android. All you need is a phone, and you’ll be able to scan a ticket in a second, get real-time entry updates and track multiple entrances. 

Halloween is often a busy night, so the last thing you want is complaints over entry time. RapidScan lets you get people through the doors fast and keep an eye on capacity levels.

Your attendees can enjoy their night quickly and your operation is safe and efficient. Click here to get started. 

Make your workflow efficient by adding team members

The Beta Promotion Centre lets you add multiple team members to your account. 

You can then give staff specific permissions. That means your finance whizz can focus solely on remittance and your intern can list events without having access to anything else. 

It’ll make your workflow more efficient. Your staff can focus solely on their own tasks, and you don’t have to worry about accidentally clicking on a section of the Promotion Centre you don’t have much experience with.

Edit tickets in a flash

If you own an event company with several brands, it’s likely you’ll have multiple tickets for each event. It can be a long process to make edits to your tickets manually. 

That’s where the Bulk Edit feature comes in. If you need to change the date tickets go off sale, you can head to the Beta Promotion Centre, click the Bulk Edit section and speed up the process.

Sell tickets on your own website

If you’re looking to make it as easy as possible for your attendees to purchase tickets for your Halloween event, selling tickets on your own website can help. 

It means you can have the line-up information, venue, times and tickets on one page. Your attendees won’t have to click multiple links; they can find out and buy in one fell swoop. 

Sometimes, having to visit multiple web pages to get what you want can be tiresome. Our ticket widget takes away that stress. 

All you need to do is add some code to your website. Click here to grab the code and get a widget. 

Make sure your event goes live at the right time

If you’ve got a full calendar of events in the year, you’ll likely be planning ahead. 

So, your Halloween listings might not need to go live straight away. 

There’s an easy way to sort this out. All you need to do is head to the Promotion Centre, click ‘Manage Event’ and ‘Edit Visibility’. From there, select ‘Embargo Event’, which will let you set the date and time your event goes live.
