London (PRWEB UK) 5 March 2013
Ticketscript enables organisers to promote and sell event tickets through the Songkick network. Songkick allows fans to track their favourite artists and be the first to know about events. Now ticketscript clients can make use of this extensive network by simply connecting their artists at the click of a button.
Ticketscript clients can now connect the artists, bands and DJs performing at their event to the Songkick platform. Fans will then receive personalised Songkick email and push messages for upcoming events of their favourite artists performing in their region and find a direct link to the ticketscript ticketshop to buy tickets. This functionality also extends to mobile and tablets as fans will be able to purchase through ticketscript’s mobile optimised ticketshop and the Songkick app. This development provides events with the opportunity to sell tickets to a massive audience of engaged and motivated music fans.
Over six million monthly users of Songkick receive alerts for upcoming events and tour dates from their music library that is connected with their Spotify and Facebook account, bringing artists and fans closer together. The 5 million paid users of Spotify have the added bonus of receiving a service that continually evolves with their musical tastes. This also ensures that the event organiser is always reaching a heavily engaged audience of music lovers.
“We are very proud of our new partnership with Songkick. With Songkick we have added another strong promotion and sales channel to our platform,” stated Frans Jonker, CEO of ticketscript. "With Songkick we can now market to passionate fans, but with the advantage that our clients are in total control of their own ticket sales and data. This development underlines our commitment to provide unique and powerful solutions for our customers to make their events a success."
“As a box office manager & live promoter, it's a fantastic addition to the ticketscript platform to be able to seamlessly add our events to Songkick. When we confirm a gig we just add the artist details to the event and the ticket link appears under the artist event in Songkick as a sales channel. With one click we can add events to Songkick's platform automatically without the need to do it ourselves," enthused Rebecca Walker, Live Promoter & Box Office Manager of The Leadmill venue in Sheffield.
