5 Ways You Can Make the Process of Buying Concert Tickets Much Easier
By David Jacobs | October 13th, 2017

The numbers of concerts being held have gone up. According to recent research, the number of concerts being held every year has increased by 30% since 2010.

Most people are known to psych themselves up whenever they are in pursuit of the hottest summer concert tickets. However, most people tend to ask themselves if there are better ways of selling the concert tickets. Several people are usually left empty handed whenever the sale of concert ticket they have been waiting for begin. Some usually get furious when they see the tickets get to secondary presale websites at higher prices. This is the reality most people encounter in the modern concert business.

However, this situation is usually known to have a sting on fans who believe this will be their only chance to see their favourite artist. Listed below are five ways that will ensure the process of buying concert tickets is made much easier and secure.

1. Non Transferable Tickets

There are ticket sellers who are already experimenting on the non transferable paperless concert tickets will require the concert goers to present their credit cards whenever they are going for a concert.

Buying Concert

This process is meant to counter brokers but also forces the individual who bought the ticket to attend that particular concert without transferring their tickets. Hence, it is time you start forgetting buying your mom and dad, friends or relatives concert tickets unless you are planning to attend with them. However, if you are sick or something comes up and you won’t be able to attend the concert, you will have to eat the cost of the cirque du soleil tickets.

2. Filtering the Customers by IP Address

In the same way Netflix has successfully managed to block Canadians from accessing the United States version of the services, companies such as Ticketmaster are now capable of managing the concert goers and cutting down on the outsiders who are trying to capitalize on the entire tour.

3. Greater Transparency

Is it mirrors and smoke or supply and demand? There are people who suggest that the ticket brokers should be able to commit to providing enough information on the number of tickets that will be on the market. This will also entail being clear on the number of tickets which have been allocated for the presale events, the number of tickets to be issued as part of promotions and what will ultimately be left to the general public. This will ensure the event promoters to know the number of seats which should be made available to different guests and the concert goers.

4. Flood the Market

Though most music superstars are known to brag on how fast their tickets sold out, there are people who believe in saturating the market. It is important that whenever the concert shows signs of selling out, the management will quickly add new dates in the same cities which will automatically destroy the value of tickets in the resale market.

5. Better Fan Club Security

Most of the griping over is said to have evolved around the lack of enough security features. Any person who managed to sign up for the bands newsletter was automatically given access to the code which could be plugged into the ticket website for advance tickets. This generic code provided any person with the opportunity of getting the golden tickets. As in the case of most big concerts, majority of the seats usually end up in the hands of resellers. However, this problem can easily be solved by sending a personalized code to the fan club members who can only use it once.
