Sees Surge in Clients Looking to Become Ticket Brokers To Fight Recession

Share Article

The 2008 economic recession may have been four years ago, but reports that there the past several years has seen a resurgence in ticket brokering as many Americans turn to internet-based income. More and more Americans are fighting back against slashed wages and the steady stream of layoffs that have hit this country since the economy went belly up. Ticket brokering has been an effective backup source of income, where startup costs are low and the learning curve is relatively stress-free.

Once you've learned how to find the tickets that will turn a profit, a lot of my clients find themselves addicted to discovering high-profit tickets.

Practically every working adult has felt the effect of the "Great Recession," as it is now being called, and The Tickets Guide has saved the day for many Americans out of work.

It all started in late 2007/early 2008 and 4 years later, the United States still hasn't completely shaken off the brutal effects of the economic downturn. We've all heard the stories--wages have been cut, jobs have been slashed, companies have bitten the dust, and people have lost their homes. These are all characteristic symptoms of a recession taking hold, but despite the passage of time, things haven't quite been the same.

Some have sat back and taken the brutal hits, one by one. "Work longer hours" seems to be the common elixir against bankruptcy--that is, for those who can get the extra hours. This strategy has worked well for some but the inevitable effect is a kind of fatigue that may have been worse than the financial hardship to begin with. This has left many searching for alternative options, and some have taken their talents to the world wide web to try and make ends meet.

For many--primarily men in their 20s and 30s--ticket brokering has been the best of all possible worlds. First, it can be done from the comfort of your own home as well as from the office (if you can avoid getting caught). With the right organizational skills, any place with a computer and internet access is suitable to run a ticket brokering business. Two, it requires very little start up capital compared to other business ventures--perhaps only a few thousand dollars to start with. And three, it is relatively easy to learn--conceptually, at least. Buy low, sell high. That's pretty much the basics of ticket brokering in a nutshell--no special training or mathematical formulas to live by.

For years, The Tickets Guide has led the way in teaching people how to become a ticket broker. The website, created by ticket broker Brandon Baker, is stocked with blog posts that explain crucial aspects of the ticket brokering process--from what tickets to buy, where to sell them, how to deliver them, and little known facts about the industry. For those who are motivated to dive into this industry head on, The Tickets Guide offers a step-by-step comprehensive eBook (Ticket Broker Blueprint) that takes the beginning ticket broker and teaches him exactly what steps to take in order to buy and sell tickets for a full-time income.

When interviewed, Baker delivered a statement: "Despite what you've heard," Baker says, "ticket brokering truly isn't a difficult thing to master. The problem is that 90% of beginning ticket brokers quit halfway through because they are eager to get their hands on anything and everything, expecting it to turn a profit. The truth is that only a tiny, tiny percentage of all available tickets will turn a profit. Our book shows you how to distinguish that tiny percentage from the rest. And once you've learned how to find the tickets that will turn a profit, a lot of my clients find themselves addicted to discovering high-profit tickets."

Ticket Broker Blueprint itself is 80 pages long and contains over 100+ images to make the process even easier. Some topics include:

  • which events to buy tickets for
  • what cities and venues sell the best
  • where to find presale passwords
  • how to properly ship your tickets
  • the biggest rookie ticket broker mistakes

Brandon does warn, though, that ticket brokering isn't for everyone: "Temper your expectations. Many people hit by the financial crisis might be in a desperate and compromised position, needing funds quickly. Ticket brokering is not something you should do in a rush, as that will only end up losing you money in the long run. Ticket brokering takes several months to turn a profit, which may be too long for many people. Ultimately, though, a few months is nothing compared to starting a standard brick-and-mortar business, so the industry is attractive for that reason."

All in all, Ticket Broker Blueprint has been received extremely well and continues to be the go-to source for the beginning ticket broker. And hopefully, by the time the economy stabilizes, many will have found themselves profiting more from buying and selling tickets online than they did at their old 9-5 jobs!
