New found revenue …
Uber Trade offers a way for you to gain, rather than lose, revenue on unsold event tickets, without forcing you to come down on price or to spend more advertising dollars.
If you are not projecting a sell out; offer up the number of tickets to trade that will bring you to 100% capacity. Even last minute tickets will sell quickly. When you post these tickets on Über Trade, you’ll find an untapped market from other business owners looking to stretch their entertainment budget or to enjoy some family entertainment. Businesses with many employees may even buy up all the remaining event tickets as a cost effective way to have a company outings or reward their employees. There are also business owners and entrepreneurs who want to maintain a certain lifestyle but cannot justify the spending when cash is tight; with trade they now can enjoy the arts, their favorite sporting events, or surprise the spouse with a special night out. Meanwhile, your business has needs of its own. Your next event may need caterers, more advertising, hotel conference space or a good DJ. You can plan your next event with an eye towards cutting your overhead costs by finding people in the trade network who offer what you’ll need. As you continue this process, event after event, the more expenses you replace with trade, the more you will increase your bottom line on each and every event that you put together.
Dealing with business owners and entrepreneurs has one more benefit—new customers! After going to one of your stellar events, who is your trade partner likely to look to for another event or to recommend to cash customers? You have found new customers that would not have otherwise purchased a ticket.
Flexibility to trade when & how you want
Even better, trade members understand that you are not always in a position to trade all of your events all of the time. You control this. When you’re not trading, you simply indicate this on your Über Trade profile.
You also determine what trade percent works best for you. You can trade some events at 100% to earn as many trade dollars as possible, or you may need to trade at 30% cash / 70% trade to cover expenses. Either way increases your businesses with someone who already knows what you can do, and who will rate your business positively on Über Trade.
