Buying Cheap Events Tickets Online  -  The Complete Guide

Millions of avid music lovers across the globe follow their favorite music artists on social media. When a live concert/tour is announced – there is only thing a fan can think of! Getting their hands on cheap tickets online to enjoy every minute of the event. It starts with enthusiasm followed by anxiety about the pricing. They also wonder whether these might sell out. Apart from social media - talk shows, promotional materials, announcements and sweepstakes sites are great ways for the most up-to-date information.

Booking tickets online is convenient. The only downside is those to popular concerts can sell out in minutes since everyone has access. However, there are a few tips that can help you sail through the process:

Beat The Rush

One of the best ways to get ahead of the pack is to avoid last minute ticket booking. Opt for online pre-sales that are announced well in advance. This is why experienced concertgoers never lose out on their cherished experience. They always plan way ahead before everything gets crazy. After all, there are millions trying to do the same thing!

Keep An Eye Out for Online Pre-Sales

Nowadays, it’s quite common for artists to sell concert tickets well in advance. These are made available to a select group before the general public. There are two main methods to ensure that you have the first choice:

- Fan Clubs

Apart from their talent, fans are what make an artist famous. Several artists always make sure that their fan club members are offered tickets as a part of their pre-sales promotion. This is their way or returning your love – grab it right away! If you are one of those diehard fans who don’t mind paying a membership fee, you’re finally getting your money’s worth.

If you don’t have the time to keep checking the website, sign up for newsletters that list the tour dates in advance. They may also include members-only exclusive priority deals and offers.

- Credit Card Ownership

Besides charging exorbitant processing fees and late payments charges, credit card companies actually do their owners some good. Banks sponsor events and concerts. They provide select customers access to presale offers. If you’re lucky, you might enjoy these. Pay close attention to credit cards that earn you presale privileges before you even opt for one.

None of The Above

If you’re neither a fan club member nor have a credit card like the one above, don’t despair! Good times can still be yours. Your fellow music lovers will come to your rescue. They will circulate a code that you can enter into the ticketing website to access the pool of pre-sale tickets.

These codes are made available to the general public through a variety of different channels. You can use them to get access to what everyone is enjoying. Several Internet users and music lovers double as beneficiaries selling their presale codes on online ticket markets. Additionally, local radio shows that are sponsoring concerts may also give out presale codes during specific periods. Stay alert and keep your eyes and ears open! You might be a lucky winner of ticket giveaways they offer callers.

Get Ready for The Public Online Sale

If you missed an opportunity to buy cheap presale tickets online, you can log onto the ticketing platform early on multiple devices. This method will definitely yield results. You will have an advantage over all the other fans.

Prior Registration

Losing out on tickets online due to no registration is not something you want to live with. Make sure that you log into the website at least 15 minutes before a scheduled online sale. This is important if you haven’t registered already. The best part is the website receives your request immediately. You can leave the ticketing pool a bit early and before the tickets become unavailable.

Use Multiple Devices

Buying cheap tickets is not an opportunity you want to lose. You can cheat the system and enhance your chances of grabbing them by logging into several devices. Multiple browser windows convey simultaneous requests to the website. Some websites may have a strict limit of one request per IP address, but there is nothing that you can do about that. One workaround is to use a second wireless router that is connected to another laptop or device.

Late Ticket Releases

Sometimes, concert promoters, artists and performers or the venue itself reserves tickets for special guests. Their overestimation leads them to making these tickets available to the general public just a few days before the show. A good idea would be to check the band’s, promoter’s or even the venue’s website for this set. You can even buy them directly from the venue for a low price. The other great news is these seats are often excellent. You might even grab the front row at a concert that you can’t wait to attend!

Buy from a Reseller or Secondary Ticket Broker

Most ticket brokers have a way of grabbing tickets faster than most fans. If you’re willing to risk it by waiting it out, then this method is much better than not going. Professional ticket resellers always charge more than the original price unless the demand is low. Apart from them, many fans who are unable to attend a concert may also resell them here. The good thing is that for fans, the profit motive is not as strong as it is for resellers. They only want to get back the amount they paid.

The other ways that you can book cheap event/concert tickets is by signing up as a volunteer for the event. If you don’t have music equipment, sound, or lighting experience, you can help with the cleanup. Just like with everything else, technology has made our lives so easy. Buying tickets online is convenient, easy, effortless and quick – no more waiting for mail orders or dialing ticketing agencies till our call goes through!
