27 Jul What EventsFrame learned from Eventbrite
So what were the three BIG problems with Eventbrite that lead us to develop our own system? Here you go….
1.It’s crazy expensiveIt boggles the mind but Eventbrite is still getting away with charging 99c plus 2.5% of your ticket fee! Now here is the problem…. Most other ticketing companies base their pricing off Eventbrite as it’s what they feel they can get away with. We can tell you categorically there’s not much more work involved to process 5 tickets compared to 50 so why charge more? This was a fundamental founding principle for us. Unlimited events and unlimited attendees for one low monthly fee.
2. You are advertising your competitors events on your event pageTake a look at an Eventbrite event and scroll to the bottom of a page. These are your competitors events listed on your page! We go for a completely different approach. Your site is to promote your events only. Our landing page builder has the best SEO optimization out there and that’s what you need to promote yourself.
3. It’s not set up for multiple events
Sure you can create multiple events on Eventbrite but there’s no overall reporting across multiple events. You need to click into each event individually to see event details and attendee info. EventsFrame was built from the ground up to suit people running multiple events per year.
3. You are restricted to PayPal only
Everyone starts with PayPal but if you run a lot of events eventually you graduate to Braintree or Stripe to save a fortune on fees. From day 1 of EventsFrame we supported PayPal, Stripe, Braintree and Bank Transfer.
