You may already know about embedding Skiddle ticket boxes on your website, but did you know you can also add a listings widget to your website to maximise your ticket sales?
With an embeddable listings widget you can:
- Embed all your upcoming events onto your website.
- Keep your website up-to-date automatically as events change.
- Direct 1-click through to purchase tickets.
- Show most popular events, or by date order.
- Style to suit your website’s colour palette.
You can edit the theme’s primary colour which will change the background of the top navigation bar of the listing widget and the background colour when you hover over a listing. You’re also able to edit the text colour as shown below.
The listings widget is kept up-to-date automatically to show the latest status of your events, along with date, location and keyword filters so it’s very easy for your website visitors to find the event they’re looking for. The widget is fully optimised for desktop and mobile traffic.
Want to see this in action? A live example can be found here.
If you’re interested in implementing this on your website, then make sure you’re signed into our beta Promotion Centre. You must have an account already via our current Promotion Centre in order to get started in beta.
Once you’re signed in, click on ‘promote’ in the left hand side toolbar and select ’embed listings widget’. As per the below, you can select how many events to show, your promoter ID (which you will see in the top right hand corner once you click your avatar), how many events you’d like to show, the order and your primary colours.
You’ll then see a code which you can copy and paste into your web code or hand to your developer to implement.
If you have any problems with using this or need any support whatsoever, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with promoters[at]Skiddle.com for more or ring 03333 01 03 01.
