Using Your App's Offers Tab to Drive Revenue, Encourage Participation, and More

At-The-Event's Offers tab is a powerful tool help drive revenue in creative ways.  From discounts to merchandise to upgrades, the Offers tab can present deals to your audience which are specifically relevant to that day's event.

Lets look at a few general categories of Offers:


Discounts are perhaps the most straight forward Offer you can provide.  These include a percentage-based or fixed amount reduction on ticket sales, gift shop merchandise, concession items, etc.  You might even explore partnering with a local restaurant to provide discounts on meals to help drive customers to both businesses.
