We want Main Street Fair to be a 'give back' site and giving away Jonas Brothers concert tickets is a great way to set the tone
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Vocus) July 6, 2009
Main Street Fair is celebrating its launch by giving away Jonas Brothers concert tickets to two randomly-selected persons that list one or more items for sale on Main Street Fair from now until July 20. One set of two Jonas Brothers concert tickets will be for the August 9 show at Staples Center, Los Angeles; the other set of two Jonas Brothers tickets for the August 4 show at Arco Arena, Sacramento.
"We want Main Street Fair to be a 'give back' site and giving away Jonas Brothers concert tickets is a great way to set the tone," said Lisa Porter, CEO/president, Main Street Fair.
Main Street Fair will be giving away free stuff throughout the year to keep the site fun and exciting. This month it's free Jonas Brothers concert tickets; next month it could be free Coldplay tickets.
Main Street Fair is different from other classified ads and auction sites. With free or low-cost classified ads and online auction listings, Main Street Fair contributes a percentage of its income to schools sellers choose across America. Nothing extra comes out of anyone's pockets except for Main Street Fair's. The site was developed as a way to help fund schools, yet serve as a platform for people who want to use the site as a retail outlet or to sell unwanted items. It is the brainchild of a single mother of an 11-year-old who was frustrated by dismal education funding and enrichment and arts programs being slashed.
"Main Street Fair is a dream come true for people that sell online and bargain hunters alike," said Porter. "And when teachers, school administrators, and parents see the earning potential Main Street Fair has to bring in money to their schools, we think they will become our biggest advocates."
Categories on Main Street Fair range from free stuff to cars to used electronics. Houses, concert tickets, travel vacation packages and much more are a small sampling of what visitors can list and find on Main Street Fair.
"Most people would like to make contributions to the schools to keep programs going, but just don't have the money," said Porter. "Now, all they have to do is list items for sale so Main Street Fair can make a donation for them."
Main Street Fair] also supports upper education by offering free classified listings for textbooks.
"With the rising cost of textbooks, college students have it tough and we want to help," said Porter. "At Main Street Fair, students can list their textbooks for free so they don't have to pay mark-up fees."
Main Street Fair is a winner's circle for everyone--individual sellers, store owners, buyers, teachers and schools.
"Main Street Fair donates funds to schools, sellers make money by getting rid of things they don't want or product they have in stock, and buyers find great deals. Making money online while supporting education doesn't get any easier than this!"
Main Street Fair also expects to draw a large number of storefronts, charging an introductory offer of only $15 per month with unlimited listings. The storefronts offer owners a variety of templates to choose from, logo upload capabilities, a unique online address, the ability to send out customized newsletters and much more.
"People can virtually have their own online auction and classified ads site without the cost or liability of ownership," said Porter
Companies can also promote themselves using Main Street Fair's banner ad program. The ads may be linked to their website. This could increase their website traffic significantly. Furthermore, advertisers will have access to detailed statistical reports that monitor banner and text ads using real-time information. These comprehensive reports includes the number of clicks and click through rate (CTR) and number of impressions to keep ads performing at their maximum potential.
The more people that use Main Street Fair to buy and sell, whether through its classified ads or auction, the more money the schools will earn.
Main Street Fair is starting on the ground floor and, over time, expects to generate an increasingly growing and ongoing revenue stream for schools.
