Free Ticket Classifieds now Tickifieds.Com

In order to sustain the unprecedented growth of the world’s largest event ticket classifieds website, we have decide to pack up and move to a new location – Tickifieds.com.  While our service will remain the same (ahem Free), this strategic move will allow us to spread our wings and a build a better community of buyers and sellers of event tickets with a much more memorable and marketable name. We hope that the new Tickifieds brand name will become the defacto place to buy and sell tickets to any event in North America.

While the migration went live today, we are planning some major upgrades, new features, and a massive marketing campaign to build upon the success we have achieved over the past 3 plus years.  Although we have done our job to ensure no links will be left un-redirected, we thought we’d provide you with a list of some of more common links so that you can check out what the new Tickifieds has to offer.

Sports Tickets:  MLB Tickets, MLS Tickets, NASCAR Tickets, NBA Tickets, NCAA Tickets, NFL Tickets, NHL Tickets

Concert Tickets (Select popular States): Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington, Wisconsin

We’d love to hear from all our loyal users about our big move. As always, feel free to suggest any design or features you would like to see as we work towards making Tickifieds the #1 destination for event tickets in the world!

 

 

 

Promoting Ticket Sales with RSS Feeds

Free Ticket Classifieds RSS Feeds

Free Ticket Classifieds RSS feeds are a great way to further promote your ticket ads.

While many ticket brokers and private sellers have quickly learned that FreeTicketClassifieds.com (FTC) is a powerful tool to both market and sell their tickets, most have not taken advantage of the one of the most unique features – personal RSS feeds. If you are not familar with RSS (Really Simple Sydication) it is a web feed that is commonly used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video. RSS feeds benefit publishers by letting them sydicate their content automatically to other websites (search engines, social media, news aggregators, etc.), as well as readers who can subscribe to the feed through various RSS readers (e.g. Google Reader). The RSS reader checks the user’s subscribed feeds regularly for new work, downloads any updates that it finds, and provides a user interface to monitor and read the feeds. Using RSS feeds is a great way to promote your work and maximize your audience.

What many FTC users do not realize is that we generate a unique RSS feed for each and every user ( see Discount Tickets RSS Feed). Your RSS feed includes key details from each ad you post. What is great about these RSS feeds is that you can submit them to RSS feed directories, social networking sites, your blog, and search engines to bring even more traffic to each ad you post. By sydicating your content you are not only insuring that the search engines will notice and index your ad but you are also getting your ad in front of even more users. The more people who see your ad the more likely you will be to sell your tickets. To find the URL of your ticket feed just click on “My Profile” from the User Menu when logged in. This will take you to the edit profile page. Above the modify user profile section you will see the site navigation in the “Ticket Trail” box. Click on your user name to take you to your profile. Once there, look above the “Featured Ticket Ads” and you will see a RSS icon with “Latest 20 ads of this user”. Click on that and you will be directed to your personal RSS feed. Copy that link and start spreading!

One of the best ways to utilize your personal RSS feed is to use a free tool over at Twitterfeed.com. TwitterFeed can take your RSS feed and automatically submit each item as a Tweet on Twitter or a status update on Facebook and FriendFeed. To see this in action check out FTC on Twiiter and our FTC Facebook Page. There is no quicker way to get your ticket ads indexed quickly and build those all important backlinks.

In addition to these personal RSS feed we also produce a RSS feed for each ticket category and/or team on Free Ticket Classifieds. These feeds are a great way for website publishers to provide relevant and fresh content to their readers and users.

Some Exciting News for FTC on the Way

It has been a while since our last blog post and we wanted to let you in on some exciting news on the way as Free Ticket Classifieds will soon be substantially growing.  FTC is on the verge of partnering with one of the world’s largest internet classifieds providers.  This partnership will further position FTC as the worlds largest (and we think best) event ticket classified marketplace.

While we cannot at this time provide you with all the details, I can assure you that this partnership will bring even more exposure for your tickets listed at Free Ticket Classifieds. Please keep in mind that in order to proceed with this partnership we may have to make minor changes to the site, most notably in our pricing structure for Advertising and Premium Memberships.  If you haven’t yet checked out our Premium Membership you should.  All of our premium ads are search engine optimized (SEO) through automatic submission to various social networking sites and are listed prominently throughout our website via our featured ads, recent ads, and popular upcoming events.  Our premium ads typically appear on the first page of Google within minutes of submission.  If you are serious about selling tickets online this is one of the most affordable solutions available at only $25/month.

Since we owe our existing Adevertisers and Premium Members a great deal of gratitude for supporting Free Ticket Classifieds, we will not be increasing prices on existing customers. So, if you have been contemplating upgrading to a Premium Membership or Advertising package NOW is the time to do it!
