The Benefits Of Online Ticketing For Haunted Houses

Here at Haunted House Start Up we strive to bring you the most valuable content and keep you up to date with services that will make your life easier as a haunter. We recently discovered a ticketing and payment system that will just that – keep things simple and convenient for busy haunters everywhere. We’d like to introduce to you one of our newest friends and partners, HauntPay. This team of haunt and tech experts knows a thing or two about the difficulties that haunters face when it comes to selling tickets and marketing their attraction. So, the HauntPay team has created a solution that will allow you to do both without adding to the stress of your daily life. I’ll let them take it from here…

Halloween is just around the corner and you’re probably scrambling to get everything ready. Do you have enough actors? Are your animatronics working properly? What about your set and props; has the paint dried yet? Where’s your makeup artist? These are all genuine concerns that should receive your full and undivided attention. These are the creative elements that make a haunter excited to get up in the wee hours of the morning and prepare for scare season. These aspects of haunting are fun; they are your calling.

But, in the midst of the hustle and horror, you also need to maintain your business and therefore need to make sure your ticketing and payments system is both flawless and easy to use. This task, however, might not be on the top of your list of things to do. That’s where we come in…

We’re HauntPay and we’re excited to be partnering with Haunted House Start Up and are grateful for the opportunity to be able to introduce ourselves to their scary awesome community.

We realize that creating terrifying experiences for your victims… I mean… guests should be your first priority, so, we’d like to take the reins on ticketing and payments to give you more time to do what you are passionate about and what you do best – scaring! If you have commitment issues, that’s perfectly okay. You can try us out for free (think of it as a first date with a free dinner included).

Our goal is to show you that we’re the real deal, and that if you don’t have an online ticketing system like HauntPay, you might be missing out. If you’re skeptical, allow Rebecca from Exit 13 Haunted Attraction to testify to how our online ticketing service has saved her a lot of heartache and seriously improved her business.

“A new customer messaged me via Facebook asking if he could buy presale tickets to our next event. I responded by saying ‘of course!’ and simply directing him to our website. Because of HauntPay, I can sell tickets whenever I want, regardless of where I am located. I don’t have to drive an hour to our ticket booth with my three kids, and I don’t have to turn customers down because no one is in the ticket booth to help them. Online ticketing works for my staff and our customers because it is both easy to use and convenient!”

Although online ticketing is helping businesses like Exit 13 by saving time, unnecessary effort, and money, a recent report from Selling Halloween states that nearly 50% of haunted attractions do not use an online ticketing service. If you’re part of this 50%, check out the benefits of the HauntPay system listed below!
