Q: I posted 3 upgraded events and have gotten zero clicks on all three. Wondering if there's something I'm missing in the process. Thanks.
A: I see you upgraded your events a few days ago and have posted them at least 4 weeks in advance of the event date. As it has only been a few days and your events are weeks away, I would ask that you check back in the next few weeks to see clicks being tracked. We find that clicks happen much more frequently during the week of your event, whereas the early post is still essential to your promotions' success.
Our system tracks clicks on the link showing on your event details page (see the "Get Tickets Now" button in image below). Clicks on this button are tracked by our analytics. Please note that these clicks do not represent the only benefits of having your event promoted in our system.
People will see your featured event in multiple places on the featured site and may even head to the listing page to make note of the location, date and time, and then decide to attend, but may never click on the link on the page. This exposure and awareness for your event is not something we can track.
Another benefit of upgrading to a premium event in our system is to boost the search engine results. Events are time-dependent items on the internet and are not likely to be picked by search engines before the event happens. This is why searching for an event may show results from last year's instance. Our syndication product is designed to make sure Google's "spiders" index the text and links posted with your event, and having this on multiple event sites will help move it up the search results much more quickly than usual. This will help those that heard about your event to be able to quickly search the internet to find the links and info they need when they need it once your event is near.
