Hello fellow Blackhatters: I thought it was about time to give back to BHW. I've used the forum for some time and have picked up some really good tips from many members. So here's my thanks to you guys! How I made some quick cash: Here's what I did to make around $212. I was able to obtain 2nd row tickets for Train awhile back. In this post, I'm going to show you how to better your odds on getting tickets near the front of any venue. Keep in mind this is not fool proof and varies a little between venues and acts. You don't have to have multiple proxy IPs or anything sketchy here to make a little extra cash. 1) First of all, I read through different ticket websites and see what is coming on sale soon. 2) I find a venue where there are a lot of people i.e. New York, Miami, Cincinnati etc. 3) I look through various sites seeking out "presale codes" (presale codes are given out by the artist for an event so that you can buy tickets a day or two before they go on sale to the general public.) 4) Most concerts go on sale around 10AM local time here in the states. I usually try to target 1 concert at a time. 5) This step is probably the most crucial to getting front row tickets or something similar. Many people seem to think that you must be ready at 10AM on the dot to get the best tickets. This couldn't be further from the truth. I've noticed over the years that Ticketmaster and Livenation usually release the middle part of the venue first, followed by the Lawn and other nose bleed seats. Usually, most people give up after 10-15 minutes. If you stick in there for about 45 minutes or more and continue to pull for tickets over and over and over, you'll eventually start seeing very good seats. This is from personal experience. Sometimes the front row tickets aren't released until a week or later after the concert goes on sale. This is more rare, but sometimes does occur. Now, keep in mind that you can only buy about 4-8 tickets for any given venue. Don't think that you're going to be able to buy every seat near the front. 6) How did I make money? Once I bought the tickets, I listed them on StubHub or eBay. I like Stubhub better as you only pay 15% in commission and your payment can be directly sent to your PayPal account without fees attached. Plus StubHub pays for shipping via Fedex. The reason I chose them over Ticketsnow or TicketNetwork is due to the larger audience and the ability to list your tickets in PDF (Ticketfast). Ticketfast are tickets that can be downloaded instantly from Ticketmaster and Livenation after purchase. 7) I thought you said you made this in 50 minutes? That's right, this only took 50 minutes of work. Once the tickets are on StubHub, it can take a few days or weeks to sell depending on your price. Even if it takes a month, you only have 50 minutes of time or so invested along with the ticket purchase price. You can even set StubHub to automatically adjust the price over time. I hope this is useful! Get out there and make some money!
