TickTechPros, a company that develops affordable web and mobile solutions for the ticketing industry, recently announced that they have launched a new line of products and services aimed at helping small business ticket brokers increase ticket sales.
The company’s services include easy-to-manage plug-in websites that offer content management, rotating images, and search engine optimization. This is a cost effective solution for a user that is on a budget. TickTechPros also offers XML sites that offer added functionality and customization. Arun Kumar, co-founder of TickTechPros told TicketNews in a recent email that for someone who is planning for a larger pay-per-click campaign, or wants to integrate their social media thread, blog or a live chat module, the XML solution is the way to go.
TickTechPros, which also offers smart phone applications for iPhone and Android, charges a one-time setup fee along with a monthly fee, which varies depending on the service. According to their website, the one-time setup fee for a plug-in site is $550 compared to $1,300 for an XML site. Monthly fees are $79 for a plug-in site, $129 for an XML site, and $149 for an iPhone or Android app. The cost of online marketing solutions depends on the type of solutions the client is looking for.
While TickTechPros offers their clients everything they need to increase ticket sales, manage customer service, and market their product, the goal of the company has always been to also provide the client with the necessary knowledge to be able to effectively use these tools.
“[A] web site is just a tool, if you don’t bring in visitors there is no use of a
web site,” said Kumar to TicketNews. “We want our clients and prospects to be successful. So we are willing to train them on trends [and] methods that are used in the online marketing industry.”
In doing so, Kumar and co-founder Roger Decker created a book called “21 Ways to Increase Online Ticket Sales,” which is available for users to download at no cost. The book gives small business ticket brokers advice on how to generate ticket sales, tips of social media marketing, how to use certain technology methods, and it also discusses the power of blogging and direct mail campaigns.
TickTechPros recently launched their ticketing solutions at the 2012 Ticket Summit in Las Vegas, Nevada. Co-founders Kumar and Decker began their partnership in 2010 with DirectSeats.com, a privately held online ticket broker also based in Texas. The pair has spent the last two years creating accessible solutions for small companies who cannot otherwise afford to have a team that is dedicated to handling their entire ticketing process.
According to Kumar, there are several aspects of TickTechPros that make the company unique including their one-door solution for web and mobile needs, strong content management system, and competitive prices. Unlike most ticketing companies, TickTechPros offers free knowledge to clients on how to increase their online sales. The online ticketing web development experts also have the manpower to assure that all the clients’ needs are met — TickTechPros is owned by CAP Digisoft Solution, a company which has 150 off-shore employees and is backed a strong management team and process, Kumar told TicketNews.
TickTechPros has plans to expand their services to include things like daily web site management, social media activities, and more, according to Kumar.
