With new social networks being created regularly, LinkedIn can be a platform that’s often forgotten about and underused. However, it can be an incredibly powerful tool for marketing your event – especially if you’re aware of many of the platform’s hidden tools that don’t seem to get the attention they deserve.
A couple of months ago, we released the first phase of our international currency support. As promised, you can now choose to sell in 109 different currencies, meaning event organisers around the world can sell tickets in their native currency or sell tickets for international events in local currencies. Plus, you can now set your chosen currency on an event-by-event basis.

What are the benefits of international currency support?
When organising events around the world, it’s important to make your tickets accessible to those in the host country. International transactions on bank statements are likely to cause worry for customers, raising concerns about the source of the transaction. By selling tickets in local currencies, you can legitimise your events and avoid any doubt over trust, whilst also helping your attendees avoid huge and unexpected foreign transaction fees.
For events that attract international guests, we’ve also enhanced the way attendees can view the price of tickets. Now, anyone purchasing a ticket through Helm Tickets can select to view the price in a currency of their choice. This streamlines the purchase process for buyers, removing the need to go away and convert and compare the ticket price in a currency familiar to them. This quick view multi-currency tool should lower the barriers to conversion, quickly increasing ticket sales for you as event organisers.

Writing blogs for your event is really important when it comes to engaging your audience and marketing your event.
Blogs are essential for a variety of reasons, including helping to boost your SEO ranking (search engine optimisation), giving you plenty of content to promote on social media, and giving additional insights into your event, helping future ticket buyers make a decision on buying tickets to your event. They’re also great for adding in calls to action to help generate ticket buying leads.
