LOOKING TO JOIN TIXLIST:
Does it cost money to join?
Nope, it’s free to join and all it takes is an email address. So what are you waiting for?
Ok, I found some tickets I’m interested in buying, now what?
Every ticket listing will have contact info and ticket pickup location listed. Just get in touch with the seller, pick a time and location to meet, and complete the transaction. Similar to craigslist, Tixlist will not handle payments or guarantee transactions. This is where common sense comes into play. While I’ll do my best to sniff out the scams and scum, please don’t do things like wire money to someone you’ve never met, or accept a check for payment. Make sense?
I’m protective of my email address, what if you sell it to another company?
That makes two of us. I understand that subscribers have entrusted their names and email addresses to me and I respect your privacy. I will not share the subscriber list with third parties.
How many emails will I get a day?
Usually just one, delivered around noon, so you can digest during lunch. If I find some awesome last minute deals leading up to a game, I’ll post them to my Facebook page or Twitter, so you may want to fan me/follow me.
What’s the TixList VIP, why should I consider it, and what are the fees?
LOOKING TO LIST TICKETS FOR SALE:
Does it cost money to list tickets for sale?
Nope, it’s free to list tickets for sale on TixList. And someone said nothing in life was free…pfffft.
I listed my tickets for sale and someone wants to buy them, now what?
First of all, congrats. Now go get your money! Similar to craigslist, Tixlist will not handle payments or guarantee transactions. This is where common sense comes into play. Meet up in person, take cash only, stay away from dark alleys at 3am, and don’t eat yellow snow.
Why wouldn’t I just list my tickets for sale on eBay or craigslist?
eBay – Because auctions are so 2000. Do people still use Ebay for tickets? Seriously. craigslist – Because it’s filled with noise, and by noise I mean fake listings, scalpers, and foreign promises of knighthood. On top of that, there’s no consistency in listings and the search functionality is limited, which turns your buying experience into a part-time job. But at least it’s free, so go ahead, list your tix on craigslist and then submit your listing to TixList as well, it’s free, remember?
MORE INFO TO BE DIGESTED:
If it doesn’t cost money to join the list, and it doesn’t cost money to list tickets for sale, are you doing this simply because you’re a cool guy who believes buying and selling tickets shouldn’t require a vacation day?
Ah, very good question. While I do believe I’m a cool guy and can’t wait to create value in your inbox every day, I do need to pay the bills. Therefore, each TixList email will be sponsored. I’ll do my best to find sponsors that I believe in, and maybe even get a few deals out of them for TixList subscribers.
What type of business, product, or service should consider advertising on the TixList daily email?
My short answer is…everyone. If you have a biz, a specialty product, a job opening, a house listing, a room for rent, a new book, or anything else that needs to be in front of thousands of eyeballs, let’s talk. Seriously, call me, email me, friend me, tweet me, gchat me, text me, balloon boy me…you get the picture. Let’s get creative and develop a win-win relationship.
