PRESS RELEASE: “Twck.it(R) Launches First Social Ticketing Network For Concerts”
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 20, 2010 – Web development firm Remsen Media today announced the launch of Twck.it (www.twck.it), the web’s first Social Music Ticketing Network. Site visitors with Facebook or Twitter accounts can use Twck.it’s powerful search and display interface to tap into ticket buying and selling sources across the Internet.
Music fans searching for concert tickets can search for any music event around the U.S. by entering the artist name and choosing the venue or city, and then retrieve results from sellers posting on Facebook, Twitter, eBay, Stubhub, Craigslist, in addition to Twck.it’s own marketplace of sellers. All results are returned in price order, making it easy for fans to find the best deal available in a matter of seconds.
Fans who are selling tickets can post their listings to Twck.it for free, with no registration required. Sellers simply use their existing Facebook or Twitter accounts to enter the ticket information, and their listing will appear accross the Twck.it network. In addition, Twck.it offers a free ticket marketing service to sellers, including visual reports showing viewing activity on each of their listings.
“By using the power of social networking we are able to establish trust from the onset,” says principal and founder of Remsen Media, Read Roberts. “It’s frustrating to have to resort to doing business with scalpers and people more interested in profit than the live music their tickets offer.” By associating listings with a fan’s already existing social networking profile, potential buyers can feel more confident about the seller’s integrity, and know a little bit more about them (photo, real name, location, friends/followers) before moving to purchase.
“Getting tickets from legitimate sellers into the hands of legitimate buyers is our goal,” adds Roberts. “The currently available online marketplaces don’t solve the problem, as sellers can remain mysterious, or are forced by necessity to raise prices due to bidding and sales commissions. In the end, it’s about getting concert goers to their events as seamlessly as possible.”
