I've seen a few people ask about how to create different kinds of tickets with EventsNow. I think I can handle the technical stuff, but I was wondering if anyone out there had advice about what kinds of tickets are out there. Can someone give me a few examples to get the creative juices flowing?

Sure thing! Below are a few examples of the types of tickets you can create with EventsNow.
If you want to offer a discount for people that purchase tickets by a certain date you can do that by using the Available From/To dates on the ticket definition screen.
1. Give the ticket a name that makes it clear that it is discounted and only available for a limited time.
2. In the Description field add verbiage to describe the ticket
3. Choose the beginning and end dates you want to make Early-Bird tickets available for.
4. You may also want to limit the number of tickets available at this discount. If so, you can set that field.
Single Attendee Tickets
This is the most common ticket type and just means that one ticket equates to one attendee. You can specify the number of attendees that the ticket represents - in this case you would input '1'. Many times a single ticket is offered in conjunction with Early-Bird tickets, so you can set the availability dates to the coordinate with that ticket.
Many times an organization may offer a free ticket. This is sometimes just called 'Registration' and is done to collect attendee names and information. To offer a Free ticket:
1. Give the ticket a name that makes it clear that it is free.
2. Set the 'Ticket Price' to '0'
Table for 10
It's common for organizations to package tickets into groups of attendees. You can define any number of attendees for a specific ticket.
1. Give the ticket a name that is appropriate for the offering.
2. In the Description field add verbiage that lets a potential purchaser what is included with this ticket (number of attendees, dinner, any special offer, etc.)
3. Set the number of Attendees to '10' for the ticket.
4. Set the number of tickets that will be available. Remember to account for the fact that each ticket corresponds to 10 attendees.
Similar to the above example of a Table of Ten, you can also define a ticket that corresponds to a golf foursome.
1. Give the ticket a name that is appropriate for the offering - for example 'Golf Foursome'.
2. In the Description field add verbiage that lets a potential purchaser what is included with this ticket (number of attendees, event shirt, any special offer, etc.)
3. Set the number of Attendees to '4' for the ticket.
4. Set the number of tickets that will be available. You can always go back and adjust the number available or you can leave it blank if you don't want to limit the number sold.
Hope you have a successful event and do let us know if you have any additional questions.
Kind regards, Alia
