Sell Tickets With Us

Selling tickets with Essex Live is easy.

We work with all sizes of organisations form large seated venues and festivals to charity event organisers and one-off events.

Although our core client base is Essex and the surrounding areas we also provide ticketing software and services to clients from elsewhere in the UK.

Here are some snippets of what we do:

Presence & Communication

Mobile Responsive Design - With over 50% of web traffic now coming via mobile and tablet devices it is essential to meet customer expectations for easy browsing and purchase via mobile, tablet and desktop.

High Volume Capability - Our systems are able to handle large on-sales for events that attract a big spike in demand. At times when there is exceptionally high demand we have a built-in online queue facility to keep customers fully aware of their ticket purchase progress.

Multiple Solutions - Choose between our ticket agency services or for larger organisations with high volume ticketing needs we can provide access to our ticketing software platform as an in-house box office solution.

Customised Web Kiosks - Have your own branded portal to keep customers on your own site right the way through purchase.

Account Management - All of our clients have a dedicated account manager with years of experience in ticketing.

Locally Focused - Our core audience is people who are interested in entertainment in Essex. Don’t be fooled by large database numbers of people that aren’t the right audience for your event. Our campaigns are always highly targeted to specific audiences.

Sales & Promotion

Flexible Pricing - Listening to every client’s requirements is how we approach our pricing. For ticket agency sales choose between adding a booking fee, paying a commission based on actual sales or a mixture of both. For ticketing software pricing please speak to one of our account managers for a bespoke quotation.

Telephone Sales - Our friendly help desk team offer guidance to customers purchasing online when necessary and can easily take payment for tickets over the phone.

Facebook Ticket App- Tickets can be sold via Facebook using our tickets app.

Tickets and Distribution - For every event we can provide printed tickets, print-at-home tickets and e-tickets viewable by mobile. If you prefer we can use your own printed ticket stock and despatch by your preferred delivery method.

Third Party Partners - By working with Essex Live your event(s) will be listed on multiple local and national event listings. Opportunities also exist with our media partner Local World – publishers of the Essex Chronicle and Brentwood Gazette amongst many other regional titles.

Email Marketing - Our database is all “opt-in” customers, who have expressed an interest in entertainment and events in Essex. Events are regularly promoted and carefully targeted to appropriate audiences.

Advice & Support - Our team are always available to offer some guidance if requested. With over 20 years in ticketing some of us may have a few grey hairs – but they’ve been well-earned!

Event Management

Access Control - All our tickets are barcoded as standard. If you wish to use the barcode scanning facility please enquire how we can set this up for your event.

On-Site Box Office Management - If your event requires on-site support to ensure the smooth flow of customers into your event we can provide hands-on support.

Performance Analysis

Automated Reports - reports can be pushed out to any number of email addresses as often as required.

Marketing Software – our powerful marketing software tracks campaigns and reports on financial goal performance to provide ROI analysis before and after each event.

Our History is operated by Standing Ovation Entertainments Limited a ticketing and marketing agency formed in 2007 by personnel who have over 20 years’ experience in the entertainment ticketing, international tourism and restaurant industries.

In 2011, having already worked together for a number of years, Standing Ovation struck up a strategic partnership with Advanced Ticketing to deliver a value-added software solution to the arts and entertainment markets.

This partnership allowed to grow as a brand and expand on the delivery of services to our clients selling tickets and develop the experience for customers buying tickets.

Late in 2014 the website was significantly upgraded and re-launched as a fully mobile responsive site allowing for maximum customer convenience when browsing and buying tickets by mobile, tablet or desktop.
