Tip For Finding The Hottest Ticket in Town
Looking for tickets to a sold out event? Want to get seats without having to scalp them from some shady character in an alley?
While eBay and Craigslist are still good places to find resold tickets, there are a few companies really focused on this market. According to ComScore Media Matrix, the top 5 companies in this arena (based on unique visitors) are StubHub.com, TicketsNow.com, TickCo.com, CoastToCoastTickets.com and TicketLiquidator.com.
While these sites' primary goal is to provide access to tickets that you want and facilitate the sale, TicketsNow.com is currently revamping their site to include better customer service and social networking functionality.
TicketsNow currently can arrange a limousine ride to and from your event and other nice perks. New tools for customers to share their experience at an event, including reviews, blog posts and snapshots, will start appearing on the site. This is the first site in the ticket reselling business to add Web 2.0 aspects to their site. You will be able to share pictures of your event with friends and family, as well as write a review or tips for other readers who are purchasing tickets to the same event.
