From Paper Mess to Easy Booking: How TicketingHub Was Born

Before Facebook took the world by storm, I was at King’s College, fascinated by a social network called A Small World, designed to connect people for jobs, housing, and events.

Inspired, I launched Studentbox for students, but it didn’t soar like Facebook.

Spotting an opportunity with London's international students, often feeling 'Lost in London', I started a company catering to their needs. We organized events, sold tickets to major attractions, and even day trips.

Rapid growth followed, with a bustling office and thousands of tickets sold weekly. But our system was old-school. We used physical tickets in the digital age.

We faced a crisis. Our paper tickets were copied, causing a huge financial hit. That challenge sparked my "Aha Moment." I realized the tours and activities sector desperately needed a digital solution to streamline ticketing.

Selling my first venture, I founded TicketingHub, focusing on creating an easy-to-use online booking system.

This journey from a failed student network to TicketingHub shows the importance of focusing on one thing and adapting to challenges. This led to the birth of a solution that fills a major gap in the market.

With TicketingHub, you can set up automated messages and reminders to keep your guests informed. We call this the message broadcast tool. You can send reminders and notifications via email or SMS.

Pro Tip: I suggest sending guest reminders via SMS. Why? Studies show SMS is 500% more effective than email. You can still use email. But a combination of both is much more effective.
