I recently became interested in ticket brokering but have no clue where to start or if I should at all. The information you have provided on this site is absolutely amazing and it answered a lot of questions that I had about the industry. But I still have a few more quick questions to gain your perspective…

1) Is it possible to make any money as an affiliate with Ticketnetwork.com (not having any physical tickets) and just using internet marketing strategies in order to drive traffic to your site to sell other peoples’ tickets for profit? I am not completely sure how that works. Is it even worth doing?

2) Is there money in selling presale passwords? Not the ones that multiple people can use but the authentic ones that you get from your credit card company (Citi and AMEX). I have access to some and your section on presale passwords made me think of that. Would that be valuable or not? Or are all the presales pretty much the same and the individual codes from credit cards just give you access to the same sections of seats as you find on the sites you mentioned?

3) What software, resources, or any other tips are essential for success as a ticket broker? What does it take in terms of character, skills, and drive as well?

Please respond to my email above. And thanks for your time and effort with all of this valuable information. I am so glad I stumbled upon this site and look forward to checking out the ebook after I do some contemplating on whether I am going to become a broker or not. Your response will help greatly in my decision. Thanks again, be blessed.

Hey,

I was wondering if it’s worth it to join a site such as eventexperts.net? Apparently they connect you with other ticket brokers but it is pretty expensive. Is it worth it to join a forum with other ticket brokers? If so which ones?

Hey Mike,

To be completely honest, I never joined any services such as eventexperts.net. You can probably get some value from paying their monthly membership price, but it’s not necessary to become a ticket broker. Those monthly fees can add up. Same goes for most other “ticket broker services.” I never joined them, so I can’t really vouch for them, sorry!

Hey,

Just wanted to comment on about Brandon’s ebook -“The Ticket Brokers Blueprint”. I’ve read a number of books on how to make money selling ticket, and this book is top notch – one of my favorites. It’s clear a lot of time and effort went into creating this book. If you’re thinking of trying your hand at this, this is really a “must have”. Read my full review of his book at ticketsellerstoolkit.com.

And I had the same question about eventexperts. I haven’t found much information on this service, so I’m thinking of signing up so I can review it.

Thanks for the great book!

Lisa

Hi Brandon,
I recently bought your PDF guide. Thank you so much, it is very helpful! I love the way you explain the things there, including the humour..!
I need your advice: ticketmaster kicked me out (I used by mistake 3 PCs with the same modem). I applied your procedure twice (from your guide) to renew my IP address, but still Ticketmaster doesn’t give me access. Do you have another advice ? Thank you very much. Ray

Why are the seat numbers rarely disclosed on StubHub and eBay?
I would think that buyers want to know exactly what they are getting. What are the pros/cons of revealing the seat numbers of the tickets you sell?
Thanks!!

JC,
I think the reason seat numbers are undisclosed is that most sellers are attempting to sell the same tickets through any number of secondary sites or outlets. If the same pair of tickets get sold twice, this allows sellers the wiggle room to supply similar tickets without breaking any promises to SH or eBay. Personally, I try to buy only listings with specific seats so I know what I’m getting.

Hey Brandon, after the ‘Front Row “F” Seats’ post you did, I got to thinking. How is it possible that nearly every arena or venue doesn’t have detailed seating charts like the one you used as an example? I understand concert stages & floor sections can vary by show or artist but the bowl seats and sports seating charts shouldn’t change right? Is it too much to ask for row and # of seats? Any advice for good charts on smaller venues? Thanks!

Hey all,

Still here, of course. I wasn’t aware that people were leaving messages on my About page!

As far as ticket insurance, my opinion is that it’s not necessary whatsoever. Ticket brokers have survived without it for so long, and if you play your cards right, there is virtually no chance of ever needing ticket insurance.

Many apologies for the missed email!

Brandon

In your book or your website, will you help someone trying to get in the business find the tickets and the people to contact in order to get wholesale tickets??

Brandon,

I’ve been doing some extensive research and starting a ticket brokerage in the Chicago, IL area and it looks to be difficult. Let me know if you could shine some light on it.

“All ticket brokers are required to register with the Illinois Secretary of State’s Index Department. They must provide, with such registration, a Code of Conduct, an 800 Consumer Complaint hotline, a procedure for binding resolution of consumer complaints and proof of $100,000 in a consumer protection rebate fund.”

Thanks,

…to be more specific the $100,000 bond seems a little hard to obtain. Maybe an option to register remote from another state?

Thanks,

Brandon,

Just picked up a copy of your ebook and it’s fantastic. This morning I snagged a pair of 2nd row Rihanna tickets at MSG that are going to turn for a pretty penny…thanks to your book!
