Startup spotlight is ABCey’s weekly post that features some of the best and brightest companies in the Bay Area. They are often companies that we have our eye on, or have worked with in the past and would like to share with the friends and followers of ABCey Events.
ABCey knows the value of a good event ticketing app, which is why we have chosen to spotlight an up and coming San Francisco startup that provides ticketing services and more! Splash is of particular interest due to its unique customization capabilities and interactive qualities and it’s booming success after the win of SXSW13. Not only does Splash offer awesome ticket/check-in but it doubles as a marketing and interactive guest platform that other competitors are lacking.
Here are the top 5 things we love about Splash:
1. Complete Website Customization
Registration for an event should create anticipation and excitement for attendees. Using a bland registration platform could potentially be the “kiss of death” in attendee numbers. Splash allows full event planner digression when designing the web based platform for events to give each event the unique online vibe that will carry over to the real thing.
2. Real Time Social Media Integration
Here at ABCey, we are all about killing two birds with one stone. Splash makes it easy and convenient to do so by eliminating the middle man so we can get our guests set with interactive tools. Event planners can utilize the app to check in and scan tickets as well as live stream photos guests take. Smile for the selfie!
3. The Online After-Party
When the event is over, we need the data that matters. Splash delivers by allowing detailed user profiles and client lists to be tracked as well as complete analytics of web traffic, emails and all the social media interaction. Having this information at our fingertips allows for growth and change event planners need for future event reach.
4. Top Brand Representation
Reputation is everything. Splash is used by many top reputable brands including Spotify, Sundance, and Thrillist. Although this start up is only four years old it has made a lasting hold in the event marketing world which says a lot about the great service they provide for event planners.
5. They Walk & Talk
A company that provides insider knowledge on the complex world of event planning is something all event planners look for when using a ticketing and marketing platform. Splash’s blog outlines their experience out at their events with their services along with photos to document the guest interaction. Seeing and reading success stories makes them all the more appealing.
