Sparxo just released a savvy feature that tracks how many times ticket buyers have been to your events. With this information, you can learn who your repeat and first-time buyers are. This feature is one of the first features created with the goal of making it easier to learn more about your community.

On the event analytics page, see a simple breakdown of your first-time guests compared to your repeat customers.

Each ticket holder has an attendance count next to their name on the ticket list for each event.

Making it easy to find information about your customer is something that Sparxo believes in. We allow you to export all the information found our system. It’s important that you have control over your data.

Make the most of your Sparxo Event Splash Page

Create multi-media landing pages for your event with Sparxo Event Splash Pages, making it easy to show off your event using videos, pictures, sound files and creative text. Today, we want to highlight a few useful parts of the event splash page.

Adding Photos to Splash Pages

Three ways to use Sparxo Event Splash Pages  

1. Website/Blog

For event producers that spent the time and money creating the perfect website. Our Splash pages embed seamlessly with any site with easy. This allows visitors to your site to stay on your site as they browse events and buy tickets. They will never leave your site. This is great for site retention times, which is great for your SEO.

 

2. Facebook

There’s no need to have a website to show off your Sparxo event splash pages as long as you have a Facebook Fan page. Ticketing can be embedded right on your Facebook Fan page where you can reach your fans. Facebook is where 1.8 Billion people spend their social media time.

 

3. Stand-alone

If you don’t have a site or Facebook Fan page, we highly suggest you get one. Having a web presence is one of the best things you can do for your brand. If you don’t have the time to build a site, Sparxo splash pages can stand alone as a landing page hosted by us. Creating Sparxo splash pages is easy and great looking, customized by you.

 

Splash Page Features

 

YouTube

Sharing a video of your event really engages your audience. There are a lot of emotions and fine details that are lost without the excitement of video. If you have taken the time to create videos for your event, definitely show it off on your splash page right before the checkout flow. Create excitement, show off your hard work.

 

Photos

Photos are a great way to show what your event is all about. Photos create excitement and entice audiences. Use pictures from previous events, show pictures of the venue, or and highlight your headliners.

 

SoundCloud

We recommend sharing sound clips if your event is featuring musicians or a speaker. Attendees love to hear a little preview. This lets potential ticket buyers learn more about your event.

 

Text

Every great event has a great description. Insert text has part of your splash page design. Use text as headers, add a description, and label your pictures, videos and sound files.

 

You spend a lot of time creating a great event experience. Splash pages are often the first impression of your event. Spend a few seconds to really highlight your event.

We just upgraded our embedded calendar. Sparxo Embedded Event Calendar makes updating an event calendar on your website easy. After you embed the calendar once on your website, you never have to touch code again. Simply create an event on Sparxo and the event automatically syncs with your website.

embedded calendar

Customize the calendar with three color themes. When we first made our calendar, we came out with a calendar with a blue background, we call this theme, Classic. We added two new themes; Black for dark background websites and White for light background websites.

Our calendar is great looking too. For one day events, we show the poster for the event right in the calendar tile. If your organization has multiple events a day, we list all events in that day. If your event spans a few days we list the event every day your event takes place.

choose color theme

Collaboration on a calendar

Sparxo makes it easy for venues and organizers to share events on a calendar. One unique feature of Sparxo is the ability to collaborate with several event producers on one event. Each Sparxo account has a unique calendar that can be embedded on a website. Person A can share events on Person B’s calendars by collaborating on an event together.

Sparxo Check-in, a Free Guest List App for Events

Change isn’t popular when it comes to running event operations.  Entry management and managing a guest list are one of the main factors for a successful event. We are proud to announce a new check-in app and we offer it for free. That means you can use our whole system for FREE to manage your guest list regardless of how that list is created. This app also makes a great companion for those who are selling tickets with our system.

Easily import a guest list into the Sparxo system along with custom fields, payment methods, and contact information so you can keep track of the guests that are coming to your event. Please note that this app is most optimal when using our registration system to have your attendees directly register through our platform. We then allow you to import sales lists of guests gathered from other systems or in other ways into Sparxo to combine your lists for check-in. However, you can choose to bypass this and simply import a list of guests from the back-end. Simply note that there are some limitations to this and the user experience is first created for registrations directly through Sparxo. You may want to opt to turn OFF the automated emails we send.

For more information about this app, read the description below and find the Sparxo Check-in App in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

This is a change you want to look into.

Sparxo Mexico Event Ticketing Support

Today, we are excited to add MXN to our officially supported currencies (alongside USD, CAD, GBP, AUD, EUR, and SGD). With this feature, Sparxo launches Sparxo Mexico event ticketing support. Event producers in Mexico can better sell tickets online and on their site. In addition to processing ticket sales in MXN, Spanish speakers can use our system natively with the addition of a Mexico Spanish language pack.

Over the last few months, we have been working closely with the Stripe Mexico beta team. We thank Jennifer He, an account manager at Stripe, for working with us as early adopters to Stripe’s Mexico Beta. Mexico Stripe beta team has been working hard to improve Radar to best detect and block fraud charges in Mexico.

Our move into Mexico was spearheaded by a contract with Foro Sur, a stadium and concert venue holding events with a crowd sizes of more than 5,000 ticket holders.

Foro Sur Venue Picture

The latest release includes some specific updates:

Payment and Pricing: 

Standard pricing in Mexico for ticket sales is 10% of the ticket price. This price includes the Sparxo fee and credit card fee. Mexico also has a required IVA (value added tax). Sparxo is compliant to IVA rules by providing a separate tax field in the ticket creation flow.

Payment is handled in MXN and can be deposited straight into any bank account in Mexico. The same 2-5 day processes time applies offering liquidity to event producers as they sell their tickets.

Language:

Part of the core architecture in Sparxo allows for language packs for both our back end and front in workflows. This allows us to move quickly into countries. We even joke internally that we could have other fun language packs added to the system because of how easy it is to add language packs. ( e.g. Snoop-doggy-fied language pack).

Physical Tickets:

A big part of this project was the adoption of physical tickets into our system. Sparxo has the capability to print out secure physical tickets that can be scanned with our check-in app. This allows tickets to be sold in box offices. This traditional way of selling tickets is still a primary use case in Mexico.

Ticket Scanning and Check-in

For this project, we also upgrade our Andriod and iOS Sparxo Check-in app. This app can now scan bar codes along with QR codes. In addition, we improved performance and battery life to compensate for low connectivity areas. This was also an opportunity to improve the User Experience as we were building the app from the ground up.
