PRESS RELEASE: “TicketBiscuit Launches Affiliate Program, Announces Partnerships with Eventful, Songkick, SonicLiving, and More”
Birmingham, AL (TicketBiscuit) August 20, 2010 – TicketBiscuit today announced both the launch of a new affiliate program and several strategic marketing partnerships with leading concert and event websites. The company said the program and relationships will help TicketBiscuit clients sell more tickets by exponentially increasing the visibility of their events across its network of partner sites.
TicketBiscuit CEO Jeff Gale commented, “With this program, we’re building relationships with the most innovative websites, concert tracking services, bloggers, and publishers. We’re giving them valuable content from our event database and a generous commission structure; they, in turn, are giving our clients immeasurable marketing reach via their respective properties and technologies.”
“Promoters and venues are realizing that they can no longer rely on expensive, traditional advertising channels to sell tickets – you’ve got to have a more broad-reaching and cost-effective internet strategy. Through relationships with websites like Songkick, Eventful, SonicLiving, and our other affiliates, we’re providing that reach for our clients automatically.”
Pete Smith, co-founder of Songkick, said that TicketBiscuit’s affiliate program was a great fit for his company. “Our goal is to make sure our users have a complete list of concerts, and easy access to tickets. TicketBiscuit is a leading primary ticketing provider and by partnering with them we’re delighted to be significantly deepening our coverage.”
With the affiliate program, TicketBiscuit provides tools to enable affiliates to extract event information directly from the TicketBiscuit database, and filter event listings by location, genre, and event type. As affiliates refer ticket sales to TicketBiscuit clients, TicketBiscuit pays them a portion of revenues collected.
