    Hey Joe,

    Here's some older threads on this topic

    http://hauntworld.com/haunted_house_...=online+ticket

    Hope it helped, sorry for not giving original advice, I just knew there were some out there, but there's probably newer opinions and news that other people can put their input in here on too.

    Weve used TicketLeap..... Our first year was a clusterfrak due to one of our people screwing stuff up... BUT Ticket Leap went above and beyond to get it straightened out and 4 months later we had our cash.
    Last year went off without a hitch and we will use them again this year.

    Now heres a Question, what percentage do you think your online sales are...... Our online sales for the past 2 years have been barely 1%

    Do people ever buy a ticket then come to you and say we couldn’t make it to the haunt and we want a refund?

    Thanks!

    Thanks Bobby, I'm looking for the cheapest and easiest to use. Some thing that the money isnt held by someone else. but goes directly into a haunt account. that way i have access to it and not waiting for months to get it.

    Ticket Leap is actually pretty good. there really is no reason not to do online ticketing,
    i think we are at about 10% for online ticket sales, and that is the market that is seeing growth also.

    #1. Online ticketing is something every haunted house should be doing. You can tap into the Impulse Buying crowd, alot of times if people go to your website and like what they see they will want to go so why not have the option right there to buy there tickets while it's fresh in there heads. #2. You must do a VIP pass, with my haunt in Philadelphia it's about a 65%/35% split VIP to REG passes bought online. Why ? when selling your tickets online you are giving the customers the mind set of Ergency and that ( This must be a busy haunt, why else would they sell online?) #3 It's just going to help grow your business.

    And I to use Ticket Leap, Best online ticket if ever used and would recommend them to anyone. Fast, easy and great customer service. Call up and talk to Lee he's your man.

    I have been selling online tickets forever before any of these online companies I was working with Ticketmaster, then I did it myself, now work with an online service. My goal each year is to increase online sales and last year we sold more online tickets than ever... we are up to something like 40% maybe 50% of all of our tickets are now sold ONLINE!

    Anyone who refuses to sell online and or doing everything they can to sell online is a flat out IDIOT!

    There are so many benefits to selling online I can't even begin to tell you... you must do EVERYTHING YOU CAN to drive traffic to YOUR WEBSITE then while they are there SELL THEM A TICKET.

    If they buy a ticket they are coming if they walk away from your site they may or may not come.

    SELL TICKETS ONLINE AND TRY MAKE IT YOUR GOAL EACH YEAR TO DOUBLE TRIPLE your online sales.

    My goal is to get to 100%.
