How to Sell Tickets to a Class Reunion
Have you been assigned the role of planning your school’s class reunion? Finding the money, a venue, decor, promoting the event, choosing a caterer, and more – can be a bit of a headache. While the logistics of the event can be complicated, don’t let selling tickets to your class reunion cause a problem for you! Sendo Invitations allows you to customize online school reunion invitations. Plus, you can send it to your classmates and manage their responses online. Additionally, you can use it to sell tickets! It’s an easy way to collect the money you need to host the event.
Here’s how to go about using Sendo to sell tickets to a class reunion:
Set Early Bird Ticket Prices
Often times there will be 2 busy periods when tickets are sold: right when they go on sale and the week before the reunion. To incentivize your classmates to buy tickets earlier, consider offering an early bird ticket price. This will allow you more accurate estimates regarding food, drinks, and other party provisions. If people know they’re saving money, you can encourage them to buy ahead of time.
With Sendo, you can even set up these different tickets in advance and schedule them to automatically go on sale on a certain date. You can offer, General Admission, VIP, Raffle Tickets, etc. for your events as well. Learn more on how to sell event tickets online here.
Make It Easy To Collect Money
Who carries cash anymore? By sending out an online invitation with Sendomatic, your attendees can pay for tickets via credit card or Paypal (direct payment or credit card purchase). You can also manage all tickets and payments in one location – and Sendo collects no fees per ticket or percentage fee. Paypal’s standard fees do apply, you can read about them here. Plus, we offer immediate deposit into your Paypal account, so there’s no lag time to receive payment.
Use Your Resources
Don’t forget to reach out to classmates who were part of different social circles in school. Those who stayed in touch with their peers over the years will be so helpful when selling tickets for the reunion. Ask them for help promoting the class reunion, and then list them as a member of the organizing or host committee on the event page.
Have A Little Fun!
Don’t forget to share old photos with a good old #tbt on Instagram. Sharing photos from high school with captions reminding viewers to purchase their tickets will help tickets sell in no time. Plus, they’ll love going through old photos!

Wow Rebecca, thanks for the help. This gives me an idea to organise the college reunion. It is almost 7 years passed I am completely out of touch with my friends. Can’t wait to get started!
Headache to the max!!…Trying to set up a Class Reunion without the tax non-Profit organization process of an bank account! Thanks for your article. Great tips.
Informative post, buying a concert ticket is sometimes a hard deal, but buying E-ticketing is popular and trendy now. Where online ticketing really helps promoters is for shows with an audience. Selling tickets online can help business clients to produce tickets for corporate events.
These are great ideas. Very informative. I think offering online ticket purchasing is the most convenient way to get the best turnout at your reunion.
