FTC Sponsoring Ticket Summit 2011

Are you attending Ticket Summit?  If so, come find us!

Free Ticket Classifieds will be sponsoring the 6th annual Ticket Summit in New York City.  Ticket Summit is the leading trade show and conference which focuses on the secondary ticket market and is hosted by TicketNews and its parent company TicketNetwork.    Ticket Summit was launched as an annual event in the summer of 2006.  The trade show now occurs twice a year with a show in New York City in January and one in Las Vegas in July.

Several hundred ticketing professionals and brokers who are experts in the field are expected attend the event happening January 13 – 14th at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City.  The trade show offers attendees seminars and workshops, as well as great networking opportunities within the industry.

In addition to brokers and ticketing professionals, Ticket Summit also offers attendees the chance to meet representatives from the theater and professional sports communities, and technology and software sectors.  Some of which include: Dustin Brighton of eBay,  Susan Cohog from NGL, Randy Cohen from TicketCity,  Brian Jemison from the New Jersey Nets, Shawn Kuzmin of the Detroit Pistons, and Jonathan Lesser of Stubhub,

By sponsoring this event, Free Ticket Classifieds hopes to bring more attention to such a unique and specialized site and thus bring in even more traffic.  By driving up advertising and exposure to new markets and people who have yet to hear of Free Ticket Classifieds, the amount of turnover and sales for ticket brokers who advertise on the site will likely skyrocket.

TicketNews is one of the best sites to stay on top of the happenings within the event ticket market.  Of particular interest are their rankings of the top events and venues.  TicketNews offers this very useful list at the right side bar near the top on their site.

So, if you plan to attend TicketSummit and want to meet with us in New York send us an email  at to set up an appointment.  Hope to see you there!

Free Ticket Classifieds Expansion

Glowfly Media, LLC, the parent company of Free Ticket Classifieds,  is proud to announce their expansion into the European market.  Today, Free Ticket Classifieds launched Free Ticket Classifieds Europe, a section devoted to sports, concerts and other events happening across the pond.

“This is a very exciting achievement and presents many new opportunities to expand into an otherwise untouched market,” Gary, President of Glowfly Media, LLC, said.  “A site like that has been requested for a long time.  After looking at the market and looking at what I can offer, in the end, it really seemed like a no-brainer.  Free Ticket Classifieds Europe has been in the works for awhile, and I am thrilled to launch and be at the forefront of such an exciting opportunity.”

The site will focus on Football (Soccer), concerts and Formula 1 events to begin with.  There is a huge demand in Europe for tickets to these events.  Currently, in Europe, there is no popular ticket marketing web service.  Glowfly Media, LLC plans to fill that niche need.

Free Ticket Classifieds was started in 2008 by Gary after seeing a lack of event ticket marketing sites that were free of spam.  Free Ticket Classifieds site offers non-commercial ticket sellers up to ten free ads per month. Those selling on a larger scale can purchase a Premium Membership for $50 a month, which is discounted when a seller purchases multiple months. Premium Membership allows brokers and others to post an unlimited number of ads.  Free Ticket Classifieds site charges no service fees for sales made on the site.

Gary highlights the sites use of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as its most unique feature. “Anyone that has analyzed the search results for tickets has probably noticed Free Ticket Classifieds ads appearing on the first page of the search results for many events. This isn’t by accident. We have worked extremely hard to optimize Free Ticket Classifieds and make it as search engine friendly as possible. The power of Free Ticket Classifieds allows even the smaller ticket broker to get high placement in the search engines via Free Ticket Classifieds.” He notes that one way in which the site achieves advanced SEO is through its use of individual RSS feeds attached to both ticket categories and to each unique user.

Glowfly Media is a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) that specializes in creative web solutions for business.  They specialize in developing custom web applications and content management systems to suit the needs of a client’s business or concept.

We welcome you to check out the new website and invite your European friends, family and colleagues to do so as well.

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!
