Selling Workshop Tickets Online

Make use of social media

Any organization or business out there that is mindful of its marketing strategies has social media accounts. Ninety percent of adults aged between 18 and 60 have social media pages thus you have a large pool of potential attendees. Facebook is the most popular of the social media sites and you should use it to your advantage. In addition to the site being popular, it also provides you with a feature that allows you to create an event and invite people to attend. This plays a huge role in letting the word out about the coming event. In the event that you create ,and in your social media posts, place links to the shopping cart where the users can buy the tickets.

Make use of previous attendees

While online marketing is powerful, so is the word of mouth. If you had organized another event before, you should make use of the previous attendees to spread the word about the event. You should reward previous workshops attendees with tickets, either free or at a discount. If they were satisfied with the previous event, they will spread the word about the workshop thus attract many people to buy tickets.

Have A Refund policy

Most online shoppers want a way of getting back their money in the event something goes wrong. To instill confidence in the people that you are selling to, you should have a clear money back policy on your website. You can tell the buyers that you will get their back their money if they cancel attendance a week before the event. If the workshop is going to last for a few days, you can guarantee the attendees their money back if they attend the event on the first day and they don’t find value in it.

Make it easy for buyers to buy the tickets

If you have bought products online before, the last thing that you want to do is be taken through pages before you complete the transaction. Most people will opt out if there are more than two pages. To ensure that as many people as possible buy the tickets, you should make the buying process easy. One of the ways of doing so is making it a one click process. Also have many payment options.

Information of Workshop “Survival”

Here are a few suggestions for “Workshop Survival”:

1. Financial Survival – Phone A Friend! If you are about to buy what the marketers call a “big-ticket item”, like another workshop that costs thousands of dollars (yes, I’ve done it!), for heaven’s sake phone a friend. Set this arrangement up beforehand, that if you are about to whip out your wallet, you will first whip out your phone and make a call. And no fair using a friend at the workshop! You are both in the same state of elation. As Blair Singer, sales guru says, “When emotion goes up, intelligence goes down.” It’s true of bad love affairs, and it’s true of emotionally-driven financial decisions. Do yourself a favor and phone a friend.

2. Emotional Survival – Specificity is Key! This one’s a little trickier, but just as important. When we go to workshops looking for personal growth as a generality, we are on shakier ground than are those who are going to get a particular business skill. Why? It’s all in the specificity. I have attended many workshops that sounded good to me – that seemed to be about the general direction I wanted to travel – and while there I got so swept up in the excitement and encouragement, I went ahead and invested in the next workshop, and the next. But when I returned home, each time, there was no notable change in my day-to-day life. Why? I hadn’t been specific enough. And while sometimes you can’t be specific – because you are looking for a direction like you look for a light switch in a dark room – the more you can take a practical look at your life and see how this workshop information would be applicable in your life right now, you will have a much better chance of bringing your “wings” home with you when you leave the workshop.

3. Business Survival – Fine Print and Fast Search! It’s the very, very last thing you want to do, but read the contract before you sign it. Also, hit the computer with a Google search for the business name and the workshop name that you are thinking of investing in. I once invested in a training that turned out to be a swindle, and the minute I Googled it (after having invested, so I then had to fight to get my money back, which takes time, effort, and aggravation), I saw that the first option at the top of the suggested searches was the name of the training, coupled with the word “scam”. There are lots of people who cry “Scam!” about all kinds of trainings and workshops, and not all of those claims are true. But some of them are. So do your search and get educated. The payoff goes beyond information and straight to empowerment. Now you are holding the power about your decisions in your own hands, rather than handing that power over to the workshop leader, the trainer, or the universe.

When we attend workshops, we are going with the idea of learning something that will advance us in life. But the more powerful the workshop, the more powerful the uplift, the more educated the marketing, and the more tempting the offers. So keep the wings, and if you start with your feet on the ground and employ some helpful and grounded techniques while you’re in that powerful training, you’ll be feeling and practically employing that empowerment and uplift when you get home.

Maintain Lean Momentum

Lean is a Dynamic System:

The thing that makes Lean different from many of the other management systems out there is that it is dynamic and adaptive by its nature. A major part of the Lean philosophy calls for a sustainable system that is self correcting and self improving. This means that the same level of attention and commitment that was shown during implementation must be maintained on an ongoing basis.

How to Improve Something that is Already Better:

The old adage ‘If it’s not broken, don’t fix it’ has no place in the Lean environment. Every task, process, policy and procedure should be under constant scrutiny to see if it can be:

  • Done better
  • Done Faster
  • Done in a different portion of the process to improve efficiency
  • Not done at all

This requires communications to and from the line. Fortunately, Lean methodologies contain systems for this purpose, simple and effective means of communications that can help identify, highlight, solve and correct problems in any segment of the operation. But sometimes, the change required is more complex than locating the tool rack on the left side of the station instead of the right. It may be addressing a major issue that fell outside the scope of the initial implementation, or investigating a suggested change that will improve the system even more.


The word Kaizen in Japanese means ‘continuous change for the better’ and is the heart of the Lean process. A Kaizen workshop can help make these changes happen, while boosting the morale of key workers in your organization.
