PRESS RELEASE: “TICKETFORCE NOW OFFERS UNRESTRICTED FACEBOOK TICKETING”
Mesa, AZ (TicketForce) April 18, 2011 – TicketForce, a major player in the online ticketing business, announced that its proprietary Facebook Ticketing service is now available for any venue or group with a need to sell tickets. Previously, the custom social media ticketing solution was only available for current TicketForce clients.
Facebook Ticketing, a social media ticket sales tool that TicketForce launched in January 2011, allows event venues, independent musicians, promoters, festivals, sporting events and event marketing professionals to sell tickets securely through their brand’s Facebook Fan Page. Customers purchasing tickets never have to leave the Facebook environment – a “must have” for the millions of Facebook users. Importantly, Facebook Ticketing is completely customized to the brand that is using it, not to TicketForce.
Users can build up a brand’s Fan Page by offering special deals and incentives to fans, such as the ability to access pre-sale specials to big concerts, shows and festivals. Features include much more than a simple ticket purchase – customers can also choose seats, apply discount codes and purchase multiple levels of tickets (VIP, general admissions, etc.) through the application.
TicketForce offers the service for a small set-up fee and a per ticket fee, based on volume of tickets sold.
“We opened Facebook Ticketing to include non-TicketForce customers because of the huge opportunity that exists for all of these groups to sell more tickets even if they are already locked in to using one of our competitors for the venue or show,” said Lynne King Smith, CEO of TicketForce. “Neither Ticketmaster nor Live Nation offers Facebook Ticketing, and there are more than 500 million people on Facebook who are more comfortable making a transaction right there, in that environment.”
Clients with full-service ticketing and box office management needs can utilize TicketForce’s web-based, white label solutions for significantly less cost and have access to more customization options than competitors like TicketMaster.
