Leading Ticket Exchange Welcomes Affiliate Marketers From Competing Ticket Affiliate Programs
VERNON, CT–(Marketwire – October 12, 2010) – TicketNetwork, the leading online ticket exchange for events and innovative technology solutions provider for both ticket buyers and sellers, today announced that it maintains its leadership position as providing one of the most generous commission payouts available to affiliate marketers.
TicketNetwork pays a standard 12.5% commission to all affiliates, except those who advertise TicketNetwork.com on ticket-level comparison Web sites (defined as Web sites that compare individual ticket prices from one or more TicketNetwork competitors). Ticket-level comparison sites receive a 9% commission rate. These commissions are some of highest payouts in the ticketing sector. Competing ticket affiliate marketing programs offer commission payouts of between 7% and 9%.
Websites that post links, banners, coupon codes, search boxes, widgets or data feeds and in turn drive traffic to TicketNetwork are eligible to participate in the affiliate marketing program. A customer that originates from an affiliate website and subsequently visits TicketNetwork.com and makes a purchase will earn an affiliate marketer a commission between 9% and 12.5%.
“It’s an ideal time for ticket affiliate marketers to switch over to an affiliate program that offers the most lucrative partnership available in the ticket industry,” said Jessica Cushing, Product Manager, TicketNetwork. “TicketNetwork provides outstanding affiliate support which is designed to maximize affiliate revenues and increase overall ticket sales,” added Cushing.
“The recently launched website SuperBoletería.com, TicketNetwork.com’s Spanish-language sister site, also plans to start an affiliate program by the end of 2010,” said Crystal Astrachan, Business Development Manager, SuperBoletería.com. “Spanish speakers based in the U.S. represent a huge untapped marketplace opportunity for affiliate marketers. An affiliate program targeting this demographic will be a main focus of SuperBoletería’s outreach initiatives,” added Astrachan.
Tickets for more than ten million events (sports, concerts, theater) are available for sale on TicketNetwork’s marketplace. Affiliate marketers may incorporate a wide variety of linking and creative options designed to encourage ticket purchases, including:
- Search Plug-in
- Banners that TicketNetwork customizes for affiliates
