How to Make Money Attending Concerts, Special Events, VIP Receptions and Sporting Events FREE of Charge
The Truth About Ticket Scalping for Cash!
You can attend concerts, sporting events and even special events absolutely free of charge and make money at the same time! I’ve done it dozens of times. I’ll show you how I do it.
I’ve attended the following concerts, sporting and special events free of charge (and actually made money on some of them):
American Idol Live (Don’t ask…I have kids)
Boston Red Sox (love them or hate them it’s hard to get tickets)
Eagles (classic stuff)
Emmy Lou Harris (I’m not a big fan but a happy wife means a happy life!)
Atlanta Braves (Spring Training)
North Atlantic Blues Festival (and backstage passes)
Michael Buble (a must see even if you hate Frank Sinatra)
Jackson Browne (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for a reason)
Paul McCartney (Paul HATES the idea of scalping…oh well)
U2 (Politically correct but marketing inept)
Roger Waters (Pink Floyd)
Hilary Duff (Don’t go there…I was a chaperone!)
Derek Trucks (An absolute must see. He tours with Clapton and the Allman Brothers too)
Wyeth Center Reception
Naples Museum of Art Reception
The secret to scalping is buying tickets at or below retail prices and reselling them for a profit.
This business can also enable you to attend shows or events free of charge while making money. I’m not kidding.
If you think that’s great, then you’ll love this…..
I discovered a hidden secret to this strategy, which bypasses all of the headaches associated with ticket scalping.
Is Ticket Scalping Legal?
There’s an underground economy for concerts, sporting and special event tickets…..and there’s nothing big time entertainers or promoters can do about it.
They’ve tried different tactics and gimmicks….like Miley Cyrus’ recent ticket fiasco requiring IDs to match digital tickets. Fail!
In fact, huge musical acts like U2, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Eagles, Madonna, and Billy Joel criticize the practice of “scalping tickets” – and re-selling them for profit.
Unfortunately most acts have no effect on the universe or market forces whatsoever. If I want to sell tickets to my best friend at a profit there’s nothing they can do about it.
Granted, top sites like CraigsList, eBay, Amazon, and MySpace have stiff polices and penalties for people who try to resell tickets online.
This is hypocrisy at its best.
You can buy thousands of products at or below market prices and re-sell them on the Internet at huge markups without any problem whatsoever.
But when it comes to buying and selling concert and sporting event tickets, some people complain about how unfair it is.
The truth is you CAN buy tickets and resell them for a profit!
Welcome to the new world of legal scalping.
There’s a new ticket “player” in town and it’s called StubHub.
Similar sites are being launched by the boatload.
But StubHub is pretty neat.
StubHub is a person-to-person marketplace (also known as P2P). The site facilitates the buying and selling of tickets. StubHub deducts a 15 percent fee whenever a ticket is sold.
The good news is StubHub enables you to buy and sell tickets online quickly and easily.
Heck….you can even do this as a side business because StubHub recently launched and affiliate program….click here for details.
Here’s the Big Picture….
Have you ever considered the magnitude of entertainment marketplace?
Think about it….. NASCAR, MLB, NBA, NFL, UFC, NCAA, NHL, boxing – and that’s just sports!
There’s also concerts, pro wrestling (like it or not) and music festivals.
And don’t forget the Grand Daddy of horse racing…..the Kentucky Derby!
The resale ticket market exceeded $2 billion in 2010, according to TicketExchange.com.
You can resell tickets directly to consumers on hundreds of other sites too. But StubHub is really good because of the high volume of qualified prospects.
A Legal Scalper’s Insider’s Guide
Granted, there are a ton of sites are jumping on the BAN SCALPING bandwagon.
For example, some sites disallow the selling of tickets for more than the face value.
But there’s a fun way around this loophole and it’s called “ticket bundles” or “event packages”.
This simply means concert, sporting or special event tickets can be “bundled” with other amenities such as two nights at a premium hotel within walking distance to the venue and dinner at a swanky restaurant.
When you approach a hotel and resort’s general manager, and tell them you are a “travel aggregator”, or “event planner”, they will extend a deep discount to you.
You’ll be amazed how accommodating general managers can be when you tell them what you’re doing.
I recently bundled an “event package” to see Norah Jones at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville TN.
There are thousands of great venues around the U.S., Canada and the world. But the Ryman Auditorium is a classic.
Anyway, I assembled an “event package” which included two nights at a premium hotel within walking distance to the Ryman Auditorium.
The total cost for the tickets and hotel was about $395. I sold the “event package” online (CraigsList) for $750. That’s a net profit of $355! If I had put the “event package” up for auction on eBay, I might have made a lot more. This profit would have enabled me to see the concert free of charge!
The bottom line is to purchase tickets at or below face value, and resell them for a profit, enabling you to see events for free.
You can grab tickets at or below face value on StubHub or hundreds of other sites like TicketMaster, Live Nation, or even eBay.
But, it’s important to concentrate on concerts, sporting and other events which have a strong demand. If you purchase tickets to concerts, games or events that SELL OUT…consider yourself lucky.
The demand for sold out events is huge…and this means more profit and free tickets for you!
