Eventbee Integrates with Facebook Connect and Introduces Network Ticket Selling – Social
Now Event Managers Can Tap More than 130 Million Facebook Users to Increase Ticket Sales.
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) January 15, 2009 — Eventbee, Inc., the online Event Management software company trusted by thousands of event managers and attendees, announced today the release of Eventbee Network Ticket Selling – Social. It is the next evolution of Event Management Platform – enabling any Facebook user to seamlessly “connect” and “tap” into their Social Graph to sell more tickets and be rewarded for each ticket sale.
Now Event Managers can designate any Facebook user to become a ticket selling Partner by simply enabling Network Ticket Selling on their events. The incentives set by Event Managers motivate Partners to promote events across their Social Graph through social interactions. This innovative feature allows Event Managers to tap the viral effect of Social Networks in an eloquent manner and reach new attendees that are not available through traditional methods like Email Marketing.
Eventbee’s complete integration with Facebook Connect allows any Facebook user to become a Partner and promote events hosted at Eventbee, without ever having to sign-up with Eventbee. If allowed, Partner can pass some or all of the incentives offered by Event Manager to the Social Graph, encouraging friends within their Social Graph to register for the event for a discounted price. With this feature, Eventbee demonstrates that there are true benefits of being part of a Social Network or one’s Social Graph.
“We love Eventbee. We have been using Eventbee on our events of which includes Obama for Change-Organizers and Volunteer Victory Celebration (http://obamainaugurationparty.eventbee.com). This new feature that allows passing discounts to Facebook friends is really exciting and a big CHANGE in how we sell tickets online. We are looking forward to tapping this innovative feature in all our events!” said Jenn Shaw, Jnine Media/Music Video 2.0 LLC.
