The hardest part of planning a reunion is getting people to purchase the
tickets for your event. It's very hard to plan a reunion, it's impossible
unless you know how many people will turn up.

Could you imagine catering for 100 guests and then finding out that only
10 people turned up? Well I've done just that, and it's very frustrating!
It's extremely important to know how many people are coming to the events
that you are planning as early as possible.

Without this vital information you won't know what size venue to book,
what entertainment, and the amount of food that you should buy.

Sure you could just guess how many people are going to turn up, but
that's like walking around a china shop blindfolded, it will no doubt end
in disaster. Anyway, why would you when you can follow our 5 amazingly
simple tips.

1. Promotion
All good businesses know that unless they promote their products nobody
will know about them. How is your party any different? You need to tell
everybody when it is, and generate loads of interest in the event. Why
not create a website that you can use to post all the details of the
event.

If you're cringing at the thought of designing a website there's no need
because there are reunion website builders that are capable of designing
these websites without any skill at all.

2. Customer Service
You should also make sure that everybody attending the event will be
satisfied. What will happen if the event is cancelled? You should
guarantee that they get all of their money back should the event be
cancelled.

3. Special offers
You want to know as soon as possible how many people are coming so that
you can make plans. It's an unfortunate part of human nature that we all
leave everything until the last minute.

You can use incentives to encourage people to decide earlier on, why not
offer a discount for people that buy their tickets early.

4. Prize Draw
As another incentive to get people to buy tickets, tell people that you
will enter them into a prize draw if they order tickets before a certain
date. You can decide what the free gift is, examples include free
tickets, or a gift.

5. Payment Options
People like many different options when paying for things, they don't
want to have to come down to see you and pay in person. You should allow
them to send a check by mail, pay cash to you in person, and also accept
credit cards.

It's much more difficult to pay by check than it is by credit card, by
enabling credit card transactions on your website you are making it much
easier, and so there's one less excuse for people to worry about!

You can also use this reunion website to tell everyone else who will be
coming to the event, use the website to encourage people to talk about
the reunion party.
