We decide to give Eventbrite a try out for ticketing the upcoming Glasgow show…

MARGARET’S up with Freya again and Catriona’s off to work just after 8am…Will’s back from nightshift too.

I have a shower and go downstairs for breakfast then I get a few online bits and bobs done before I have an online coaching session. I’m one of a bunch of music industry folks/musicians selected for a coaching programme being funded by Help Musicians.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the 90-minute video session goes well and I have a few tasks to focus on before the next ‘meeting’.

The Glasgow show with my self and Sean Oliver is confirmed for the Record Factory (Byres Road) on Sunday 12 May. Not long away, so I get busy with social media listing, online art, posters and ticketing.

We’ve always used wegottickets for online ticketing but often wondered if there’s more visibility using a platform like Eventbrite. Also, wegottickets takes time add venues and, subsequently events, to the system and on investigation Eventbrite doesn’t – the tickets are available immediately which makes setting all the online listings a bit faster which, especially with a short notice show like this, is a big plus. There’s other benefits in that fees etc can be included in the prices there’s no confusion over costs…and it looks like the buying process is much simpler than with wegottickets.

I set up the tickets on Eventbrite – get ’em here.

After lunch I take Freya out for a wee walk in the rain…she’s asleep within minutes of the pram moving!

Back at the house I do some more work on the Glasgow show. Unplanned workload, but it’s become a priority as its so close.

We leave Catriona and Will’s just after 5pm and hit Stirling for some shopping then make our way home.

Dinner, a dram and an early night.
