AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- With the event ticketing landscape coming under increased scrutiny, more live shows are choosing to ticket their events directly. "With our commitment to transparent pricing, low all-inclusive fees and early access to funds, Ticketbud empowers performing artists to maximize revenue through direct ticketing. Our user-friendly platform makes it easy to sell tickets online," said Ticketbud CEO Kayhan Ahmadi.
There were calls last week for a federal investigation of the online ticketing industry, citing the Ticketmaster-Live Nation stronghold. "Americans...have grown sick and tired of the sky-high fees." A Government Accountability Office report found that on average, fees are more than 25 percent of ticket prices and are often not visible until late in the buying process.
Recently on the Joe Rogan Experience, popular comedian Andrew Schulz expressed frustration over ticketing companies with unnecessarily high fees, who are also holding on to valuable event data and attendee contact information. With more comedians and live shows making the move to Ticketbud, the company recently invited NYC comedian and producer Joe Hill onto their Ticketbud Tidbits podcast. A key factor in Joe's switch to Ticketbud was the early access to funds before the event. Early payouts are a game changer, due to the upfront costs of organizing and promoting shows.
