There is a lot of money in selling tickets and I have been trying to capitalize on it for a while now. I can’t say that I have found the holy grale as of yet. But the potential is sure there.
Selling tickets as a means for making money online is very profitable. And I wanted to point out the two most profitable ways of doing it. The two way I will look at is buying and selling and affiliate programs of course.
First buying and selling.. Hannah Montana has been a hot ticket in the past weeks. This ticket went on sale at ticketmaster as just a presale and was sold out in the first 5 mins. Each show!!! Wow.. Imagine if you were able to get your hands on some of these tickets. Well if you were their are a number of websites that allow you to resale those tickets for a substantial profit. Three most notable are Ticketsnow, Ebay and Stubhub. Stubhub is owned by Ebay so if you resale on this site they will also advertise the ticket on Ebay. Million on eyes looking for that one ticket. If you search eBay, you’ll find a ton of tickets going for sale in the $200-$500 range. You will also see the same on Ticketsnow and Stubhub. Selling a ticket on either of these sites for this hard to find ticket alone has the potential to net you hundreds of dollars per ticket. That is good money. Also, selling on either of these sites is very simple.
Now, lets get to the affiliate programs. I’ve used each of these programs and I love each one. Ebay, even though you will not make a lot of money by getting someone to buy a ticket, the real money comes into play to getting new people to signup for ebay. They will pay you $25 dollars per each new signup that buys anything. Anything.. Boy, I love this affiliate program. So, to me it just a numbers game. The more people I send to Ebay the more money I will make. Ticketsnow and stubhub are a little different. With these programs it is about the ticket. The more the ticket the more you will make. I’ve gotten returns on sales in the $30 dollars range to the $60 dollar range. And these numbers are from one ticket sale. Imagine if you could be 20 to 30 sales a month. 20 X 30= $600 per month. Great money. The only drawback with having an affiliate site for tickets is that there is a lot of competition. This is not a program I would recommend for a beginner as it will take time to get high in the serps of any of the search engine. And if your a PPC person, most keywords will cost around $1 to $3 dollars per click.
