How to give a free ticket to people who share on social media

A great way to make your event go viral is to allow people to enter for free if they share the event on social media. The more people share, the more free and paid people register. 

Here's how to allow people to enter a ticketed event for free by sharing:

  1. Go to the Sell Tickets section under the Event Edit page.
  2. Click the Paid Tickets button.
  3. Choose your price (we would recommend a lower amount, like $5.00)
  4. Choose the Share to Attend for Free option. 
  5. Choose the number of free tickets available. 
  6. Confirm attendees screen shots under the promote manage section of the details page.
