Farms are one of the most-loved attractions for families and parents of small children and that means your business will often attract a crowd on a warm day in the school holidays. Managing your ticket sales can be challenging when you need to consider limits on the numbers of visitors, the stress on animals if they don’t get to rest, the availability of other onsite attractions like play areas and cafes and of course the regular visits by school tours and playgroups.
Farms need a simple and effective system for their ticketing that takes all of the variables of your business into account. WebTicketmanager is the perfect solution.
Instant ticketing: Our system allows you to sell tickets in a variety of ways and for your visitors to get their tickets issued immediately – saving them time and allowing for those last minutes decisions.
Group Booking Module: Depending on the activities on offer at your farm, you may host guided tours, special events, school tours and more. They may all want to take advantage of play areas, cafes and exhibitions. Our group booking module gives you the flexibility you need to oversee this without confusion.
Maximise revenue streams: We understand that farms can be affected by weather and unexpected closures – so having a good regular income is important. Our platform allows you to sell tickets in a variety of ways including via 3rd party ticketing sites and even via similar attractions in your area as a reciprocal arrangement.
Fast and free set-up: We don’t charge for your initial set-up, and it can be completed in as little as 2 hours. You’ll be on your way in no time – with no downtime at all.
Payment processing: If you prefer, we can look after all of your payment processing and ensure that when you sell a ticket or a tour to your farm and you receive the money into your account without delay.
Flexible contract: we don’t believe in locking our customers into lengthy contracts. You can come and go as you please – but remember the more you earn the cheaper your fees become!
Reporting and analytics: Understanding your peak times and customer levels is so important when it comes to planning how you will run your business going forward. Our analytics provide all the information you need to make crucial decisions with real facts.
Branding: Visitors stay on your own branded website or use third-party sites and resellers to create even more revenue streams.
Fast: Visitors can purchase tickets in advance or on arrival and we will take care of all payment processing – even the fee payment and revenue distribution.
Flexible: Create special pricing structures for special events, different on-site attractions or for group size or age.
Compliance and Safety: always stay ahead of the requirements of your location when it comes to capacity by knowing exactly how many people are onsite at any time.
Analyse: Create reports that show your best exhibitions, peak ticket selling times, best ticket prices and most popular areas.
Join the WebTicketManager family
We are proud to have worked with hundreds of tour operators, event spaces and attractions over the years and we fully understand the special requirements of each of them. We have been in operation since 2012 and are trusted to provide ticketing systems that deliver flexibility and reliability, allowing our customers to build their visitor numbers and increase their revenue year on year.
How WebTicketManager works
Setting up your ticket selling platform with WebTicketManager is fast and free. We can set up a basic selling site in as little as 2 hours and we only charge you once you start selling. Our fee structure starts at 4% of the ticket price and when your revenue builds to more than £100,000, the fees you pay start to fall.
We know that when a family goes out for the day they might visit 2 or 3 different attractions to make a real day of it. BoxOfficeNetwork is a unique module that allows local attractions to work together to sell tickets to other attractions in their area. This adds another vital revenue stream into the mix, with your farm earning 10% of the ticket price sold via your website or social media.
Interactions with your existing software
WebTicketManager is designed to work seamlessly with your existing software due to its universal functionality. You can be selling tickets within hours and you can pick and choose the benefits that serve you best.
We offer the following modules to enhance your platform and really get those tickets moving:
Seating: Got an event that is capacity restricted or seated? Our seating module will allocate seats and ensure the ticket prices match specific seats as needed.
Membership: WTM360 works with any membership options you may have in place for your regular visitors. It can keep track of your regular customers and ensure they get the best offers and promotions sent directly to them.
Capacity: Whether you offer indoor or outdoor attractions, you will need to have an awareness of overall numbers. Our capacity module does all that for you – ensuring you never oversell an event or particular day.
Gift vouchers: Parents & Relatives love the adventure and education value of farms – our gift voucher module allows you to sell vouchers to give your customers the flexibility they need.
Customer Relations Management: Your CRM system will integrate with WTM360 to make sure you can understand the needs of your visitors and keep in touch with them throughout the year.
Mobile validation: Keep those queues moving with mobile validation with tickets right on your visitor’s mobile device. Paper tickets can be printed too for those farms that need to ensure customers present paper tickets for added organisational or safety requirements.
