TicketLiquidator.com rises in popularity to become the second most visited website to buy and sell tickets on the secondary market. Executive Director Nick Eve credits the increase in traffic to a growing appreciation of TicketLiquidator.com’s unique service offerings. “Over the last year we’ve put a ton of effort into better meeting the needs of our customers,” he says. “We provide lots of useful information to our clients such as driving directions and restaurant recommendations that make the process of buying tickets and attending an event as easy and pleasant as possible. We have also added the ability for individuals to sell tickets on our network. Our holistic, customer-focused approach seems to be paying off.”
Months ago TicketsNow was the talk of the secondary market when they overtook StubHub! to claim the coveted number one ranking for five weeks. TicketLiquidator.com’s move up to the number two spot, while a change of only one position, is a significant stride that speaks to the growth of their market share.
