Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) March 1, 2007
ShowClix.com, a Pittsburgh-based Internet startup, helps musicians, venues and show promoters connect with live music fans by taking a new approach to concert promotion and online ticketing. The site, which combines a live music database with a general admission ticketing platform, can be used by musicians, venues and show promoters to promote, manage and sell tickets to their shows from one convenient location online, free of charge.
Having launched with over 6,000 show listings in over 200 cities across the United States, ShowClix also solves a problem for music fans, giving them an easy, convenient way to search for, track and buy tickets to shows in their area.
ShowClix' live music database was created to connect musicians, venues and show promoters with music fans in every city and town across the United States.
Musicians, venues and show promoters are not required to sell tickets through ShowClix to be listed in the database. Any user registered on the site, including fans, can instantly add shows and venues to the open database free of charge by filling out a simple, online form.
ShowClix gives users a convenient way to search for, share, track and promote shows found in the database. Users can search for show listings using an advanced search feature; forward show listings to friends; set reminders for upcoming shows; or have updates on any search query sent to them via RSS feed. ShowClix has also developed widgets that make it easy for users to display selected shows on their website, MySpace profile or blog.
ShowClix has developed a basic ticketing application to provide musicians, venues and show promoters of all sizes with an easy, affordable way to presell tickets to shows online. There is no upfront cost to sell tickets through ShowClix. With nothing more than Internet access, users can sell tickets, track sales progress and generate reports. There is no software to buy and no special hardware is required.
"Domination in the ticketing industry has limited the opportunities for smaller venues and emerging artists to presell tickets to their shows online," said ShowClix partner Joshua Dziabiak. "We realize that there's great risk involved in putting on a live performance. We created this ticketing platform as a way to help minimize that risk."
Music fans will benefit from ShowClix' ticketing platform as well. Unlike competitors, who charge customers a service fee on each ticket purchased, ShowClix has chosen to charge a single $2.00 service fee on each order of 10 tickets or fewer.
